The Black Widow is one of the most deadly spiders in the world. It is also the most popular in social media as well. The Black Widow Spider is the embodiment of Arachniphobia. But it's not just its looks that are horrifying, but its name. It got its grisly name from its creepy behavior to eat the male after mating.

Black Widow Spiders are very similar to another deadly spider, the Australian Red-Back Spider. Black Widows tend to make messy-looking webs. They will build these almost anywhere they can, but tend to stick around dark corners in places such as porches and patios, but will also go into houses.
