So I found this spider on the inside of my garage door last week and as I was about to smash it, I noticed it was a female black widow. I'd never really seen one before so I caught it in a jar and showed it to the wife. Next thing I know I'm feeding it moths and roaches and whatnot and this thing grows 4 times it's original size! It's really cool watchin it kill a big roach and then scarf it down. Anyway, I get home from work today and this thing (looks like a tan colored WWII sea mine) is in the jar:

Time to feed the beotch a little raid ....

Yea, just wait till it has 50 babies and you knock the jar on the floor.

Damn that's creepy

Remember that the baby spiders are REALLY small. Any air holes are probably fair game for them to get through.

Imagine how much nicer it'd look submerged in Carb Cleaner, or all crispy from a torch, or hell, it'd look REAL NICE as a streak of Black goo on the garage floor.

Nice looking Spawn of Satan you got there.

All Spiders must Die.

At the very least I would get that mother out of the house and into the back yard. As was said above, baby spiders are tiny and could go anywhere.

I thought of that. The last thing I want is a house full of these varmints. No air holes in the jar. It's a big plastic pretzel jar and I open it once a day to let some air in. That is until they hatch. When that happens, this experiment is over.

I knew a guy that this almost happend to.... had about 50 babies, and almost broke the jar several times. I don't know if he ever got rid of it (don't talk to him anymore (PSYCHO)) but I do know that BOTH of his roommates got bit. They had to visit the hospital every couple days and have the 1.5" HOLE in their side sucked out and cleaned!!!!

My dad had one too. He kept it in a styrofoam cup in his work truck for about a week when he put it in a jar it had like 200 babys that were crazy small. put it out in the woods and opened the lid.

I had one of those THINGS once in a shed I was about to tear down. It was a small shed, so I burnt it in place. I fucking hate spiders. I'd rather have a snake in my house than a spider.

Blast off and nuke the site from orbit, its the only way to be sure!

Do you need a napalm recipe or something? Burn it now!

She is only preparing to breed. Probably all the good food you've been giving her got her "ready" to expend the immense amount of energy it takes to lay eggs.



Unless a male black widow (which looks nothing like the female) manages to get in there and fertilize her she probably wont be laying anything. Unless widows can store semen like tarantulas. Which means she has bred before and still has some nut juice left over.

About 500 of the little pinpoint sized babies come down like Airmobile Rangers on little strands of web.

Then they attack and eat each other until there are only 5 or 6 left.



I did not know that - thanks for the info

From what I've read, the female can store sperm for a long time. I'll know in about 20 days.

BigT this is the coolest thread on here today. Don't kill it like these nancy boys suggest, keep feeding the bitch. When the egg sack bursts, post pics, and introduce the colony to another colony of red ants and see who wins!! Toss some bumblebees and scorpians and preying mantis in the mix for a fucking royal rumble!!!

that's what I tell my wife all the time, she's deathly afraid of spiders... I won't kill them for her anymore, they do too much good IMO...
Link Posted: 8/13/2004 7:23:56 PM EDT
Great. I'm down in SC dealing with freaking mosquitoes (racquetball-size welt on my arm) and now I read this. I'm going to go nuts swatting at every little puff of air that tickles my arm hair now.

My father caught one once. It spun a web in the jar, but he didn't keep it long enough for it to lay an egg sack. He killed it, but I can't remember the method. Any of the above will work fine I'm sure.

When they hatch, you will not be able to feed her. Then she will eat the babies.

One of our FALFiles buddies...FALtitude IIRC, did this with several scorps, BW's and maybe a Brown Recluse and a few other critters and would post pics etc. as to the outcome!

I also think that she has been 'spermed' and that there are eggs developing in that sac!

Personally I would kill it and the sac but it is your pet!

It would be outside though just in case!
