Black Widow - Latrodectus mactans
Fort Bragg, Cumberland County, North Carolina, USA
May 15, 2004
This was the first of four Black Widows we found last summer around our house. The last one we found inside our screen door IN THE HOUSE. Finally, I broke down and had the house sprayed....didn't want to, but with kids and animals I couldn't take any chances. We have a lot of widows in this area. My neighbor found 11 under her kids' outdoor toy box.
