I just saw a huge brown recluse spider in my room and decided to take a picture before trying to kill. This was stupid because when I tried to kill it with flip flop I missed. And it want inder a heavy dresser.

I read spiders do not bite unless provoked can this spider remember I provoked it and come and get me in my sleep?

Yes it will.

If you kill it before it gets you, his mate will come after you.

If you kill her, all 600 of her babies will be waiting for you.

I get bit in my sleep by spiders regularly. Part and parcel with living in a forest. No matter how much I vacuum, can't get them all. About 2 weeks ago I pulled back the covers to get into bed and a spider scurried for cover. I had just changed the sheets 2 days prior. I got him tho. At least that time.
And don't watch Arachnophobia for a while.

If they had the kind of memory you are writing about the the spider would "remember" to avoid the area where you tried to kill it, NOT decide to take vengeance on you. So just continue watching out for them accidentally getting in your space, while they are looking for food, water, or a place to hang out.

What is their food? Am I their food?
I got bit on the neck, I thought it was a strand of hair falling out of place, but it was a spider crawling on my neck and it bit me.

I saw a black widow in my basement one day but I didn't get bit. She was still mourning the loss of her husband that she killed. I also had a brown recluse living in my garage but he pretty much kept to himself, seldom went outside.
