Not much: Most insect bites are not dangerous. You have to watch for signs of infection resulting from the bite, typically occuring over the first few days. It really is of no consequence what bit you. Luckily most spider bites are not dangerous and the dangerous spiders, black widow and brown recluse are not that common. I think your zip code is the northeast which is not where the brown recluse is found.
