OMAHA, July 25 (UPI) -- A Nebraska man says his apartment has been invaded by venomous spiders.

Dylan Baumann of Omaha said brown recluse spiders are crawling across his walls and floor boards. He has to sleep with is bed away from the wall and shake out his clothes and shoes before putting them on, KETV, Omaha, reported Wednesday.

The spiders are not aggressive but they are venomous. Dennis Ferraro at the Douglas County Extension Office said the mild winter and hot summer may be making the infestation worse.

"We virtually did not have a cold winter this winter, and the hotter temperatures that we're having would probably allow for more reproduction," Ferraro said.

Baumann said he plans to move out of the apartment in September.
