Nah my man, for those reasons:Want them?;p
You can feed it to your Ts..hah...Especially slings, they're a good but okay size for slings...right??Nah my man, for those reasons:
- I live in another continent, so that would be 'brown boxing'
- ain't a fan at all of 'true spiders' in all honesty
- just in my Lombardy neighbour region of Liguria, we have Latrodectus tredecimguttatus in the wild
- in Italy the keeping of pot venom arachnids (and genus Latrodectus are) is banned
Uhm... micro crickets are by far more cheaperYou can feed it to your Ts..hah...Especially slings, they're an good but okay size for slings...right??
Brown widows are prolific breeders and seem to be displacing the native black widows wherever they spread.Interesting. Thanks for the info. I had no idea.
Yes, I noticed the same thing here in SoCal. I used to find black widows in my garage and shed all the time - until the brown widows moved in. Then the true black widows became a lot less common. (Of course, once the cellar spiders moved into the garage, there was also a noticeable decline in the brown widow population.) The browns also seem to have replaced the blacks at my kids' school - which isn't altogether a bad thing, given that they sometimes web underneath the picnic tables, in the handrails and fences, and underneath the playground equipment.Brown widows are prolific breeders and seem to be displacing the native black widows wherever they spread.
I used to find black widows (Latrodectus mactans) in South Carolina on a regular basis. Now if I see a widow, it's 99% likely to be a brown widow (Latrodectus geometricus).
