Holmqvist looked down to see the distinctive red hourglass shape of a Black Widow spider.
Andrea Norwood's insight:

I happenend to be coming into the front door of my home once and saw a latrodectus, black widow spider's hourglass. Some of them, tho, are fakers, and what I mean by that is, there are some black widow who are not really real and nor are they posion. I found out in the wikipedia, the free encylcopedia that these spiders wear the bright red hourglass that almost looks orange as a means of protecting themselves from other dangerous critters in the spider family and others. I think that's intelligent.

A GOOD SIDE: Not a lot of spiders in the Northwest are poisonous, garden writer Pat Munts points out in a column for The Spokesman-Review.
Andrea Norwood's insight:

Yeah, this is true considering that there cousins the latrodectus, black widow spiders are the most posinous and dangerous amongst their spider cousins. I think the garden spider is less poison of that bunch or the normal american house spider?

After mating, the female black widow eats the male.
Andrea Norwood's insight:

I know, this is so gross, but, in my new book and the very first book in the spider pack story, I transform my People Spiders to the point of intelligence, control, socialites, charming beings. I believe that most of humans fear for the spider is because of their appearance and ways of the spider and so I change that with my People Spiders, except for the spider fang teeth and the way they descend on earth should all be flattering to the humans.

Andrea Norwood's insight:

Spiders are spooktacular and they will rule the world someday. I see people spiders as intelligent beings with a strong hold of control and they know where they're going, and some of us, well most of us on earth don't even have a clue as to where we are going are what to do. I also think that the people spider generation will be a refreshing change as to the usual critter we fear and they are similar living to us and their world is similar to earth.

Ticks are tiny arachnids found in woodlands that feed on the blood of mammals, including humans.
Andrea Norwood's insight:

Wow, this is something new, because I never knew that ticks were considered as spiders and I know that like ticks and other bugs spiders can be in the circle of critters but they are mainly Arachnids. I am startled to learn that ticks are blood sucking spiders! So vampiric!

Andrea Norwood's insight:

As a author of my first spider book, I have made myself familiar with what I consider the five important members of the spider family, and they are, (1) the Latrodectus, black widow spider. (2) the Brown recluse spider. (3) the Chigger spider (4) the American house spider and the last of the five is: (5) the garden spider. The big guy or gal in the picture looks to me to be a member of the brown recluse family.

And when you think how often I've dropped my phone, that was pretty brave of her." Alarm call. DAFT gag for the weekend? A female readers phones to ask us: "Why do black widow spiders kill the males after mating?
Andrea Norwood's insight:

I believe she does this because she has no further use for the male and after she mates and becomes pregnant, then her time is short. A short time after she dies and the male is left to produce more babies by another female black widow spider in the spider family and often times this is a no no among spiders and so the male is often eaten by the female after mating to prevent further use of her mate to other members of the family....
