I drew this because it was on the list. Fear it... respect it.... I actually feel a little sad for the poor black widow spider. I have seen a few on our property and have immediately gotten rid of it.
I can see no good reason to allow it to live and multiply.
Fatalities caused by bites from Black Widows are rare,
but do cause swelling and discomfort and a physicians treatment is highly
recommended since a certain segment of the
population is more susceptible to the venom than others.
