The other day I noticed a big black spider in my window. It’s creepy long legs made me shudder, and I had a feeling I knew what kind of spider it was. Last night I came home from a bike ride, and the light in the living room illuminated the nasty thing so I could really see it’s silhouette. I grabbed a flash light and lit up the sucker. Sure enough, the tell-tell red hour glass on it’s abdomen gave it away. It was a black widow. I am normally pretty cool with bugs, but not when they’re insanely poisonous and living in my living room window. Sick freak! My husband and I scoured our cupboards to see what we could find to kill it, and all we came up with was hair spray and Windex. Hrm.
Thankfully Dollar General is only a quarter mile away. So we used this coupon here…. the Dollar General store coupon for $1 off Hot Shot….
And this manufacturer coupon to get a nice bottle of bug spray for $1. I suggest buying it BEFORE you need it. Otherwise you will have to do what I did and keep the light on the spider (in case he gets away) and watch him catch and eat a bug. Then you will kinda feel bad for it when he has to die. Poor thing. Just wanted to eat bugs. Anyway, I think we sprayed the entire bottle on him and he quit moving so all is well. For us, not him.
