Distinctive Markings: How To Identify A Black Widow Spider

There are a handful of spiders that look like black widows but aren't, which can make identification a problem. However, they have unique traits that make them stand out from the rest of the crowd—one such trait; their distinctive red markings. 

If you look underneath the spider's abdomen, you should see a pair of red triangles meeting at a point resembling an hourglass. This mark stands out in stark contrast to the spider's shiny black body. Other traits set this species apart, but this one is wholly unique.

Black Widow Spider Bites: Understanding The Potential Health Risks

Black widows have certainly earned their ominous reputation. Its venom is estimated to be 15 times more potent than that of a rattlesnake. It's so venomous that it can kill an adult human.

However, you can quickly treat the bite with modern medicine, so the black widow's body count, at least here in the United States, is relatively low. Still, the bite is incredibly painful and has awful side effects, including spasms, chills, nausea, rash, and swelling, among others.
