The adult Black Widow (Lactrodectus mactans) female is usually jet black and nearly 1/2” in length. The underside has the infamous bright red hourglass marking. The males are half the size of females and light brown with a yellow hourglass marking. This spider is usually found around shrubbery and in areas with little disturbance such as woodpiles, under boards and around brickwork, especially where brick and wood siding extends close to ground level.
