Its not an answer to your question, but i found a chrome ( as in metallic silver) spider in a shipping crate at work one day. It was a Honda atv built in Brazil. Just thought i would put that out there.

In America, there are three species of Black Widows. The southern black widow is known as Latrodectus mactans. There is one important difference between the shiny, large bellied female black widows and the smaller dull male widows: venom. Male widows are not poisonous, nor do they have the red hourglass shape on the underside of the abdomen. They are twice as small as the 8 to 13mm sized female, making distinction very simple. These venomous spiders are dangerous, particularly to the elderly and young children, and should be removed by a professional.

killing it with a kitchen spatula - what would do it

I tried to film a male last summer but never found one. Did find a female though.



And lots of these buggers

The tarantulas were all over the place in Carlsbad. You could easily find 20 or 30 a night. Black widows you had to look a little harder for but could find half a dozen or more in a couple hours. Giant centipedes were around too. They are freaky because they are so damn fast.
