Black Widows are notoriously dangerous spiders. The venom of the female (shown here) can cause very severe reactions including widespread pain, sickness, partial paralysis and spasms. Usually,complete recovery occurs in 2 to 5 days, but in about 1% of cases the bite can be lethal, particularly in the very young or very old. Black Widows frequent all manner of outdoor structures on which they can weave a web to hang upside-down. The Black Widow is common in Oklahoma.

Female black widows killing their mate makes for a good T.V. drama, but is more myth than reality. Fact is the male Black Widow is rarely killed by the female. To top it off, the male even lives longer.
