Spider time in the south.

It's getting real warm down here and the spiders are coming out. Found this brown widow and what looks to be an egg pod. She didn't live long after the picture was taken.

You're right about spider time. I've removed a few from our coach also.

Remember, though, that spiders kill other insects - it's what they do for a living. And if your RV or house has an invasion of spiders, it's likely because they are finding it a good place to get their food.

Spider bites can be itchy or occasionally a bit painful to humans, but rarely dangerous except to those already ill or very young.

We were at Fort Wilderness this past week, and the spiders were visible in several places. They made webs in the awning supports and on the picnic table in the first 2 days. And we all got a few bites.

Just don't get bit by the black females with the red spot who never seem to be able to have their mates and eat them too.

Or the brown ones who like secluded spots.
