Spiders have always creeped me out and the Black Widow is the ultimate of the creepy ones. Just the way they hang out in their web, hanging upside down and the stickiness of the web is weird. I know spiders eat a lot of bugs (competition) but they in general just look menacing.
A few facts:
- More common in the South and Southwest but can be found almost anyplace.
- Venom attacks nervous system, dangerous bite but rarely fatal.
- Usually outside at night.
