A Georgia woman recently found 30 brown recluse spiders inside her home.

According to WSB-TV in Atlanta , this discovery was made the first night she moved into her new home in Paulding County. "I just say we should just burn it down," Nicole Photianos joked while laughing.

Brown recluse spiders feature a violin pattern on the back of the cephalothorax. 

According to emedicinehealth.com , brown recluse spiders are native to the midwestern and southeastern states and finding populations outside these areas is rare.

WSB-TV reports that Photianos and her husband contacted the family that sold them the home and they said they never had any spider problems.

I think they've always lived in the walls. They just got out when they did the work, so yeah they are just kind of everywhere,” said Nicole Photianos.
