Spider Fangs Time

The state of Missouri, where I have always lived, is right smack-dab in the middle of the range of recluse spiders in the U.S. This time of year, end of summer, cooler nights, fall and winter coming on, I always begin to worry about spiders coming inside. We have already found two black spiders... Sign in to see full entry.
