The Third


This is the third black widow we have found in our backyard this year. I think I'll keep track of how many we run into this year. If you live in the south, I bet you will find a few when you look around your yard. And I highly recommend you get a book on spiders and emphasize the bad ones. My youngest was the one who alerted us to 3 he found last year.

Wow! It's really surprising you've seen so many in your yard. We see tons of spiders all the time, but never a black widow! funny...

I hate those yucky spiders. We have different kind around our house all the time! Twice now we've had the kind where my husband tries to kill it and then babies run off of it in every direction. It's soooo creepy!!

Yikes! Those things scare the dickens out of me. We found a couple of them last summer...kept them in a jar for a long time. Still alive! No holes in the jar for air either.
