Black Widows - Yikes!!!

Last night Derek went black widow hunting outside. They only come out at night, so you have to find them at night and spray them directly to kill them. This is one of the spiders he got. It had climbed up the wall and you can see where it spun its web to hang on before it died. I don't like spiders, but black widows really are kind of pretty!!
