Discovered the hot tub developed a slight leak and had to twist myself into a knot to work on it. While doing so I found several black widows had made a home under the tub! To make things worse I decide to shore up the deck under the hot tub and found a scorpion and more black widows. This house and deck are only 6 months old and the critters are trying to take over!
Anyone know of a good over the counter bug killer that actually works?
One time I decided to clean the basement windows in this old house we had. The window wells were really small--too small to actually get into. So I was on the ground, bending over as far as I could, cleaning the glass, when I suddenly looked up in the corner and there were half a dozen black widows--huge ones. Scared the bejeezus out of me. Ever since then I haven't bothered to clean basement windows. :-)
I was watching a show on the Animal Planet last night about people who'd been bit by spiders and snakes. Spider bites can be really, really bad. No window is worth taking *that* risk! I just keep the blinds down on the basement windows so I don't have to see the dirt. LOL
A while back I found a Black Widow in our warehouse. I caught it and put in in a container to keep it for show and tell. That thing lived for months in an old peanut butter jar. I tossed everything I could find in that jar. Grasshoppers, flies, and other spiders. You should see the Black Widow take out a Wolf or a Brown Recluse spider. No problems, it killed them and ate them later.
