    Default Black Widow's New Catch



    I guess this black widow is taking a break from eating bees and has decided to try something bigger. Looks like she plans on letting her hatchlings have a bite when they emerge.

    Is there something about Black Widow's and Bees? I opened one of hives the other day and right there on top of the inner cover was one of the largest Black Widows that I have ever seen. Needless to say, she is no more.

    We have a lot of them here. I've killed about 5 around the yard this year. I've never heard of anyone being harmed by one, although it is possible.

    I just don't like them.

    I kill about 4 or 5 every time i sort equipment, they are not deadly to an adult in good health. But the bite can make all of your muscles cramp up for about 8 or 9 hours even muscles you didn't know you had. I do not like them sam i am
