Black Widow Spider
Black widow spiders are most common in the southern and western areas of the United States. In fact they are often found throughout North America. They can be recognized by the pattern of red coloration on the underside of their abdomen. Black widows are usually found in yards with undisturbed woodpiles, garden sheds, under eaves, fences and other areas where debris has accumulated. They can also be found living in outdoor toilets where flies are plentiful.
