The latest addition to the Burro Hall Mexican Wildlife Preserve: an infestation of black widow spiders! Okay, "infestation" may be a touch dramatic - so far, two - but when you're from Brooklyn, there's really no acceptable number of black widow spiders in your home.
The Google tells us this is an immature female Latrodectus hesperus, and that, while "its bite is particularly harmful to humans... Latrodectus bites rarely kill humans if proper medical treatment is provided." The Google is frustratingly vague as to what constitutes "proper medical treatment," so we plan to self-medicate with a healthy dose of dynamite administered to the foundation of Burro Hall Headquarters. Posting may be light while we relocated to a hermetically sealed office park north of the border.
