    Good for you!! I hate black widows, too. Spiders, in general, are good because they eat all the other creepy crawlies, but black widows are just nasty. And you have to smash them, there isn't a spray that kills them. At least I don't know of any. We had them when I lived out west. KILL AWAY!!! YUK! Strength to you...

    ick. Have those here too, so many I've given up. Standing house rule: shoes (not flipflops) and gloves always doing chores. On the plus side, if anyone ever tries to steal the a/c, or grill, or mower....

    [​IMG] Oh my! I'm so glad we don't have those spiders here! I hope you took care all of them. I'd be going to the nearest store to buy spray and spay everything in sight just to make sure I killed em all. Yikes!

    Hey Nicole, just make sure it's labeled for spiders, and never to spray the grass the cat chews on... [​IMG]
