Tonight when my husband came home from work I asked him to water our plant out front. I was outside with him and as he was bent down by the pot, I noticed there was a black widow spider about 8 inches from his hand.
Because of his location we weren’t sure how to kill him without him dropping into the hole of the cinder block. Then we remembered last summer when we killed the 30 some odd black widows in the back yard that we bought spider killer.
Tony sprayed him and then he slowly tried to escape and then was stepped on. Tony sprayed the rest of our front walkway and found an even larger black widow, which escaped under the siding of the house, though it did get sprayed first.
Here are some nice black widow pictures for you:
I guess it is the season…..to think I was going to weed that section of the yard soon. I guess I will wait a few days…
