This little spider has a fearsome reputation! Western widows are hungry from the start, and spiderlings will eat their siblings if resources are scarce. The widow's messy-looking cobweb looks disorganized, but its strength, stickiness, and design are ideal for entangling insects. With their potent venom, widows can quickly dispatch prey.
Despite their notorious reputation, females rarely kill and eat males after copulation; however, they're willing to eat males they reject. The act of successfully mating often fatally damages males, after which the female will take advantage of a free meal.
After mating, a female lays about 200 eggs inside a sac. She guards it against even large predators like mice, by shooting sticky silk at their faces - or with a deadly bite.
