    Just thought it would be interesting to share this.. My black widow eating a pretty big wasp that flew into my house. Probabily wasn't the smartest idea to feed her it, but thankfully it ended up well. Oh, one of my FOUR eggsacs has now hatched:)

    They take down impressive prey. I recently found a northern widow that had the remains of large hemiptera, bumble bee, and beetle parts beneath her web.

    Agreed. Slowly enjoying most insects but after many bad experiences with bees and the like as a kid, no thanks. At least for now :)

    Cool video, I thoroughly enjoyed it! Jealous of your widow though. I want one. :( I don't see them too often here.
