The Black Widow
Found an excellent specimen of the female Black Widow today. Big one too - about 1.5 inches long. The bastard was hiding right under my hot tub lid.
Not having had any experience with spiders I took a moment to figure out how to kill it for sure, without having it run away and hide. These things are apparently shy, and since it was now hiding tucked underneath the lid, I decided to go with a tool that happened to be handy - my long lighter for the BBQ. Perfect long flame grilling the poor sap. Bad spider, no donut.
Toasted Black Widow anyone? ;-)
