Do you have brown recluses in Canada? I thought they were mainly confined to the midwest, South central, and South Eastern U.S. Luckily we don't have them here in AZ. We do have a couple other recluse species, the AZ Brown spider and the Desert Recluse. We have plenty of black widows. This spring, my brother foud his indoor cat with a black widow on two occassions. She was lucky not to be bit. We had a big hairy tarantula hanging out in our kitchen one evening. I have no idea how something that big got in the house! It was pretty shocking to find it! Some people have problems with Western Diamondbacks ending up in their yards but we haven't had that happen. We did have a bobcat in one of the neighborhoods in our area this spring. Of course we get coyotes on our street, sometimes in broad daylight when they are really hungry. Javelinas go in peoples yards as well. What kind of wildlife and creepy crawlies does everyone else experience?
