Black Widow Spiders Sent in Shipment to England
Black widows are rarely seen in the United Kingdom, but they are found throughout the United States, most often in the South and West. Like the brown recluse spider, this species has a distinct pattern allowing for easy identification – a black body with red “hourglass” coloration on the underside of its abdomen.
If a black widow spider is found, it’s important to contact a pest professional immediately. The black widow venom contains a neurotoxin, which causes immediate pain at the bite site and then spreads to other areas of the body such as the chest and the abdomen.
