Look what was hanging above my front door today...

I am glad Miss Dee is completely paranoid about everything including walking through doors... I would never have looked up and seen this if she hadn't been with me:


That is a genuine female black widow spider. (Well it was!) I used half a gallon of bug spray to kill that sucker. That dang thing just WOULD NOT DIE!!!!

Gotta love living in Utah in the hills. :)

Jason found one on friday. I would have been so freaked out. I would have hid in the house and called out the bug guys right away. It's florida we have to have bug guys. DIY wouldn't get rid of the ants.

Yes Miss Petra, you could have spared us the scary picture!! LOL
I am terrified of spiders. We have a problem with Black Widows at our house. Thankfully none inside, and I kill alot outside as I use bug poison around the house and windows multiple times a year to keep the nasty creepy crawlies out!!!

YUCK! Sorry, but so glad that wasn't me that found that...don't like spiders much...especially "genuine female black widow" ones. Happy to hear she was "taken care of!"

Dude. What do you think shoes are for? I keep extras around just to smash the little offenders. I have a great bug guy do you want his number???

Oh my gosh, I can't breathe right now, terrified of spiders, aahahhhh! Good thing it didn't fall into your hair!!

How sick is it that I didn't want to smash it with my shoe because I wanted a picture of it???

(Mike Sr smashed it when he got home, even though I assured him it was good and dead.)

We contemplated giving it to Wade to scare Max with on Sunday, but decided we like Max too much. :)

I'm with you Petra--hate smashing spiders with shoes. I feel slightly less panicked a couple feet away with a bottle of bug spray. I sprayed a black widow on Tuesday, sure it could not survive, when an hour later it started moving again!
