Black widow spiders are known for a bite that can produce severe reactions in humans, particularly those that are very young, old, or sick. Reactions can include painful cramping throughout the entire body. These spiders most often build their webs in areas such as between boxes, in firewood, and within debris piles, and even in shoes where they can hide. Treatment of these spiders is extremely important in preventing bites and possible health emergencies.
