I found them in my backyard with many egg sacs.
I think it is a brown widow since it has an orange-colored hourglass shape on its abdomen. It has also egg sacs around which look like big pollen grains. What do you think?
Definitely Latrodectus and likely geometricus, especially if she has the spiky egg sac.
Thanks for the reply!
