Black widow spiders

Black widow spiders (Latrodectus mactans) is a highly venomous species of spider that is a native species to the United States, Canada and Mexico. The Northern Black Widow spider can be found in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Ontario.

They are extremely difficult to find and chances are you will never actually see one, although there’s always a possibility, especially if you know where to look (although why you would want to, I don’t know).
