Who Is the Black Widow Spider?

The black widow spider gets its name from the erroneous belief that the female spider kills the male after mating. There are five species of black widow spiders in the U.S.; the southern black widow and the northern black widow are the most common. The spider is medium-sized and about half-inch long.
