MI Couple Finds a Black Widow in their Bag of Grapes [Video]
No trick or treat, just some real life scary ish.
A couple from Milford came home from the store and when they went to enjoy some grapes they realized they brought an unwanted guest home... a big icky spider. Andy Russo told WDIV that when he saw the hourglass mark on the belly of the spider he looked it up online to confirm it was a black widow.
National Geographic says that a black widow's venom is 15 times more poisonous than a rattlesnake. Fortunately, they're nonaggressive and only bite when threatened; and death after a bite is rare. Sure, but that still wouldn't make me feel any better if I found myself in this situation LOL.
WDIV reports that the Russos triple bagged the spider and took it out to the garage... where it's still alive! No thanks, time to move.
