Beware the Black Widow

My grandma sent this to me-- I have cool grandparents!


The Black Widow....

This spider, one of only a few poisonous spiders in the
USA, can be found all over the states of Missouri, Arkansas, Kentucky, and Tennessee.
The spider releases a neurotoxin into the victim that, if not treated, can cause death!

The Black widow hooks-up with the male then sucks the very life out of him after mating!

She's very easy to spot...

The female has a very wide backside, is Black, and has a red hour glass shaped marking on her belly...




















You can find this spider in:
*
*
Closets
*
*
Wood piles
*
*
Under beds
*
*
And soon......
*
*
THE WHITE HOUSE!!!!!
