black widow ...
A story today in the news about a black widow spider giving factory workers a shock when it crawled out of a delivery box. The South American stowaway hid in a crate of mechanical parts bound for construction company Miller UK in Cramlington, Northumberland.
After doing a bit of investigation on this spider, I thought I would share with you how black widows like to keep in touch:
Generally black widows do not keep in touch! Males must contact female, and he must approach carefully to avoid being eaten. He vibrates her web in a certain manner that she recognises, allowing him to approach her without risk.
She really has got the right idea, hasn't she!
