We got this warning today. I had never heard of it. It hangs out much like the Black Widow under rocks, trash, or dark parts of your home. Instead of being shiny black the Brown Widow can be any color from sandy to black depending on the age. It's legs are two toned with alternating sections of colors. The Brown Widow has an hour glass shape of yellow or orange instead of the red. Their bite tends to be a little less intensive then their famous cousin but not to be ignored. Stay safe, watch where you put your hands when doing work around the house or yard.
