Say Hello To Your Scorpion Roommates

"[The current weather pattern] means perfect conditions for a host of pests including fleas, ticks, termites, mosquitoes, brown recluse and black widow spiders and scorpions to flourish in the coming weeks. What’s worse, the hot, dry temperatures will eventually drive those pests to seek out moisture and cool places to dwell — like homes." [Via]

I left three planter pots side-by-side, upside-down out by the garden shed. When I went to move them, there was a glossy black widow spider, both bulbous and sharp, in her shitty messy web inside each one. They're probably still there. I don't know.

Mild wet winter, followed by hot dry summer. We are crawling with black widows out here this year. We don't greet acquaintances with chat about the weather these days, we ask how their venomous spider supply is coming along. eeeeep.
