Just when you thought it was safe to go hiking barefoot. Highland Park/Mt. Washington Patch posted this article about this relative of the black widow, the brown widow spider. Apparently, she is less deadly, but can still inflict harm. Approach wood piles, old clay pots and trash cans with caution. Wear your gloves while gardening – always a good idea!
