    My aunt and uncle have a ton of black widows in their garage. I go out there for the summer, they want me to clean their garage.

    Had an aunt at age 74, years ago bitten by what they think must have been a black widow in Ok. She was hospitalized for quite awhile. It was touch and go there for awhile.
