BLACK WIDOW SPIDER

Black Widow Spiders are common in our area and can be found in garages, crawl spaces, bushes, foundations and other areas around homes.  

Many people fear or dislike spiders but, for the most part, spiders are beneficial because of their role as predators of insects and other arthropods, and most cannot harm people.  Spiders that might injure people--for example, black widows--generally spend most of their time hidden under furniture or boxes, or in woodpiles, corners, or crevices. The spiders commonly seen out in the open during the day are unlikely to bite.

HOW THEY GOT THEIR NAME

The Black Widow Spider gets its name from the popular belief that the female eats the male after mating, although this rarely happens in nature.
