A Lovely Lady Catches the Eye of The Atlanta Home Inspector

Home Inspector with IHI Home Inspections 404-788-2581

 Black widow spider

    We spotted this lovely lady dangling not so very far away from her

web during a  Canton home inspectionThe red dots indicate that she is

indeed a Black Widow. Also, due to the grape shape that her belly has,

we would say she is full of eggs. 

Don’t let her beauty fool you- she is venomous!  Even though she is shy , she prefers the night life. Don’t take her by surprise, you might get bitten.

 Some symptoms of Black Widow Bite include, but are not limited to: excessive sweating, swollen eyelids, abdominal pains, and sore muscles. If you are bitten seek medical attention.

I'm soooooo glad we just don't have those critters here (Montreal). One positive for a seasonally cold climate (sub arctic).

Good Morning Bonnie and David, Black Widows are dangerous little creatures.  An excellent warning for home owners.
