We get a lot of wolf spiders. I know the black widows are around here, but I have never seen any. Sprinkling the home defense pellets around the perimeter of your house works really well.

I caught one and put in jar took it by the little red school house. The person in charge there Flipped out when they saw it. Definitly not native to Illinois. They wanted nothing to do with it so I smashed it with a shovel. Make sure you check your shoes before put them on.

don't fear the widow - it won't attack you. Live and let live.

I did not think the were native to IL but maybe the hot summer has something to do with it. I have killed a few of the wolf spiders this week in my house. Best thing I have found is Home Defense. You spray around the foundation, window and doors. Can also be used indoors. I need to get going on that soon! Check this out for more spider info:

Putting the pellets down and then spraying works wonders. Make sure to take your hose and soak the pellets good. According to the state website,IL does get the northern black widow.

I haven't seen any black widows , or I guess I haven't noticed them. Where do you meet them, the grocery store?
How did their husbands die?

I do see a lot of hourglass shaped black women, but I can't tell if they're widows.

I crack myself up.
