Black Widows Spider Control

Black widows are identified by red “hourglass” markings on the underside of their abdomens. Black widows are shiny black in color. Females are larger than males and can measure up to 10 millimeters in length. Black widow spiders favor dark, secluded areas such as crevices and woodpiles. The venom of the black widow spider severely weakens the nerves and the brain, leading to impaired breathing, body aches and nausea. Death is more likely in very young or old individuals.

  • Unique Characteristics: Often the most iconic looking spider because of its small black body and red markings on the abdomen. Females are significantly larger than males.
  • Dangers: These are labelled as the most venomous spiders for a good reason. Within a few minutes one small, painful bite the victim’s nerves and brain cells will weaken and experience various symptoms i.e. vomiting, nausea, and difficulty in breathing. Children and elderly are vulnerable to death.
  • Location: Black Widows live in darker and more secluded areas, i.e. attics, basements, closets, wood sheds, and barns.
