We fought brown widows last year. Finally won the battle, I hope.

Where's my old boot?

What happened between the Black Widow and Banana spider?

I used to shoot Banana spiders with a bb gun. They look scary, but they're OK.

Black and brown widows are not.

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.

Way back, packing to move from Colorado, I was working in the garage, felt a tickle, and there was a black widow walking across the back of my hand. I just watched and she went on. I did squash her after she was on the bench.

Arizona - lots of black widows and brow recluse. Where I am now, only brown recluse but there are a couple in the bathroom every night. They're not good swimmers, especially if they're squished. Poorly designed, I guess.

An immature Latrodectus Hesperus. At this point,I cannot tell if it's male or female. If female, she'll turn blacker as she ages.

And a few other spiders, not Latrodectus

Phidippus Audax. the “Bold Jumping Spider” or “Daring Jumping Spider”.

Pholcus Phalangioides, the “Skull Spider”, or “Daddy Longlegs Spider”.
