There are many spiders that inflict fear in humans, but not many are as horrifying as black widows. Female black widows are large spiders that are almost completely black except for a red hourglass figure on their bodies. These dangerous spiders should only be handled by a spider exterminator who can examine and destroy a spider’s nest in Crystal Lake with guaranteed results. Watch this National Geographic video to learn more about black widow spiders’ nests and their offspring.

Once a male black widow spider has fertilized a female, she will lay sacks full of eggs in her spider nest. She can lay up to five sacks that are each filled with 200 eggs. Within two weeks, the eggs will begin to hatch, and up to 1,000 black widow spider babies will emerge. To prevent a spider infestation, call a professional spider exterminator whenever a black widow is spotted.
