Found a Black Widow in the Grapes?! Answered

I just got a package of grapes from Costco and what do I find? A Black Widow. Note that I live in Washington; Brown Recluse territory, not Black Widow. It's ironic because I just watched a news story on this.

That's weird. I usually never see any black widows here (washington), but this year, I've seen two. I found one during the beginning of the fall, and another just a couple of days ago in the garage. But I'm smurt! I put my shoe on the end of a pool cue and squished it from 5 feet away! It's guts were brown...

Why's that cruel? I'm not afraid of spiders, and prefer not to kill them, but I don't want any black widows around. Even though it's very, very unlikely to get bitten, and it is very, very unlikely to kill me even if I do. I've got too many pets and people around my house to take the risk.

Are you sure? Let's have a better shot of the top of its abdomen.

"suggests that you kill it by putting it in the freezer". Or you could light it on fire and hope the atrocity screams...

Leave the jar in the fridge for half an hour before you go to school, make it sleepy.

I put it in a small vial of preservatives. It's sitting on my desk, next to the shark.

They only bite if threatened, I've picked up both widows and brown recluses, barehanded, and not been bitten.
