catch them in a jar

Well you could do that but I wouldn't recommend it. They are very poisonous and getting that close could be a bad idea. Brown recluse Spiders are very hard to find as their name suggests. They typically hide in dark out of the way places. When I was in college we had a problem with these spiders and let me tell you it was enough to keep you up at night. I would call an exterminator. Also purchase some sticky traps. They are cardboard hollow boxes coated with a glu substance. This will trap the spiders and cause them to die fairly quickly. It will also help you identify how bad the problem is and where they are hiding. Put them in your closet, under the bed, in your cabinets, and any other out of the way places. -

- If you catch one look closely for the violen shape on their back. Many people think they have brown recluses but they are a similar looking spider. Until they are gone check your shoes before you put them on. This is a common hiding spot and often bites occur when your foot forces the spider into the toe of the shoe. Don't mess around with them call a professional and take care of the problem. You don't want these little buggers multiplying. If you think you have been bit seek the care of a doctor as quickly as possible. The bite can cause some nasty scarring if not treated promptly, but in some cases, that will be the least of your concerns as the spider's bite has a chance of causing necrosis. For more information about necrosis, i suggest you visit the wikipedia page.
