Today were going to talk about black widows the most common place to find them are right down by the j-rail just all crazy mixed up down here by the j-rail. Why? Because the j-rail offers goes into the wall inside the wall offers a lot of cool air coming out. Cool moist air coming out also is a great place for crickets to breed remember that crickets breed in these plants because there's water drippers on the plants so there's a huge population of crickets in the yard therefore that which preys upon crickets will also do well which is black widows so the black widow often times if you walk around the foundation of the house you'll find a web like this purple web I have here at the base down by the j-rail very common to find them right at the entryway right at the entry way just hear or there the other place. Now how do you know it's a black widow as well if there's no black widow in the web number one the chaotic a chaotic web means that it has no order to it if you remember the story Charlotte's Web the a lot of spiders create a pattern to their web design you know a design in their web black widows have no pattern to their webs none at all it’s just all chaotic oftentimes you'll find leaves and debris in the black widows web because the web is so strong it's the strongest webs of any spider here in Arizona so it's a very strong sticky web its low to the ground sometimes you will see severe infestations black widows with webs up in the eaves and you’ll actually be able to see her sometimes in the very corner trying to hide as much as she can but usually it's down by the ground cause there number one food source is crickets so if the web is low to the ground and doesn't have any spider out in it other spiders don't really recluse back into a lair they don't recluse back into a dark space most of them don’t.
