    This is a joke, right? Do a search on "hourglass and spider."

    Thanks, a Google image search didn't come up with anything and I have only seen the black/red ones.

    If the hour glass is orange it's a brown widow. I've had a few in my garage over the last few years here near the Florida line. It's one of those species that have migrated up from Florida. From what I remember the venom is more potent but they inject less of it.

    The banded legs are the big indicator. You are correct in the color of the hourglass as well.

    Brown widow it is.

    Thanks everyone, I already told the kid to terminate it with extreme prejudice, but I had never run across one before. All I have ever seen are the black varieties.

    Burn down the structure, collect the insurance and build new, it’s the only way to be sure.

    They are all bad news; I have never been bitten by a widow spider, but several years ago I was bitten by a recluse spider, and it was awful.
