Why can't we do something similar with wood products now being brought in to the U.S.? Label all these foreign goods as being harvested in an environmen- tally pleasing manner. The standards should be no less, no more, than we have for our own timber harvesting prac- tices. To back up this Policy, we need to have inspectors out there making sure that timber is in fact being harvested in foreign lands using acceptable environmental guidelines. If this certification cannot be made, let's go elsewhere for our lumber and wood product needs. Remember the message, "Act locally, think globally."

However, they are not ag- gressive and normally bite on- ly when crushed, handled or disturbed. The brown recluse is aptly named, since it is a reclusive creature seeking and prefer- ring seclusion. When a bite does occur, the severity of a person's reaction depends on the amount of ven- om injected and individual sensitivity to it. Bite effects may be nothing at all, immediate or delayed. Fatalities are rare, but bites are most dangerous for chil- dren, the elderly and those in poor physical condition.

Within 24 hours, the bite can erupt into a volcano le- sion, a hole in the flesh due to damaged, gangrenous tissue.
