So my wife found this little guy on the front porch the other day. She wasn’t as thrilled as I was to find it. It was actually the first time I’ve ever seen a Black Widow before. From the top side it looks like any normal spider (at least to me), but on the bottom side is where you’ll find the red hour glass mark that everybody talks about. Even though it’s rare, for a bite from one of these guys to kill you, it’s still not something you want to take lightly as they can inflict a lot of damage and cause serious illness. I would highly recommend going to see the doctor.
