Comments & ID Thoughts
I found a total of 13 of these critters on my front porch and have been consumed with anxiety ever since. Now my family’s general consensus is that this a type of black widow but the back looks to be of an orange color. So from googling I discovered that there is a variety of different widows species, I just hope these are the “Red Widow Spider”.
