Black Widow Spider
Black widow spiders are part of the big spider family which has over 31 recognized species. Species vary widely in size. In most cases, the females are large in size and are easily identified by the reddish hour-glass shaped markings on the abdomen. The terms widow spider is inspired by the behavior in which females eat the male after mating. Like other spiders, the black widow spider construct a web of irregular, tangled, sticky silken fibers. They often construct their webs on ceiling especially in rooms or spaces which are not regularly cleaned.
Many injuries caused by black widow spiders are due to defensive bites when they are unintentionally squeezed. But the venomous bite is considered particularly dangerous because it contains a neurotoxin that can cause bad systemic effects including muscle pain, abdominal cramps, hyperhidrosis, tachycardia, and muscle spasm. The black widow spider has unusually large venom glands and its bite can be particularly harmful to humans. There are anti-venom remedies available for pain relief and medication.
