My wife sent my 10 year old, Gracie out to weed a little flower bed in our front yard, and she came in a moment later to tell us she had found a black widow and her egg sac in one of the pavers around the bed. I went out with some bug spray, and just to be sure, I turned over a paver to see if there were any more. I found one. Then I turned over another and another with the same result. Ended up with more than a dozen spiders and more than 20 egg sacs. I thoroughly saturated the area with permethrin and hope I have solved the problem.
