Quick--- check under your dog's waterbowl!
This morning I went out to refill Dolly's water bowl. I picked it up as usual and started to carry it to the sink in the kitchen. For whatever reason I turned it upside down and was shocked to find a huge black widow living under it. Too bad I didn't think to grab the camera until after I had killed it, but at least I have proof with this picture. The scary thing is that I probably risked being bitten every time I picked up this water dish and I didn't even know it. Creepy.
Disclaimer: I'm really not about senseless bug killing but when the bug can potentially harm us and has hundreds if not thousands of babies just waiting to be born, I will quickly kill it. What other alternative is there? Nicely give it a boost over our fence?
