Here's the deal - if you find a CONFIRMED brown recluse spider in your house, here in Michigan - after confirming it really is one - the Rose Pest Company will treat your house to get rid of it AND hand you $300.

The $300 should prove once and for all that most of these sightings are false. (Except in your house. I believe you.)
