Octo kills one of these.
We found a black widow in our driveway and Octo promptly smashed it and its weird, web covered insect prey. Or egg sack. Whatever that thing was. While we were driving past, I spotted it hanging from a thread. It was kind of of odd that I happened to see it. These things are all over the place where we live and they suck! But something interesting I notice about them is that they sort of "decorate" their little lairs. Ours had a pretty little twig dangling from its web. And I found one once that had decorated the front door of its little hideout with berries and a christmas light. Swear. (Christmas light was not hooked up to power, however.)
