Black Widow

Black Widow

The black widow prefers seclusion, but its bite poses a serious health risk to people. It remains hidden in recesses and crevices, or in dark moist places such as debris piles and storage sheds. To remove a black widow from the shed, use the wand of your vacuum cleaner and suck it up. Removing clutter and debris from your property will reduce black widow habitat.
