Our pest control technician found this black widow spider in a rodent station in Charlotte North Carolina. Rodent bait stations designed to control mice, and rats, can become a secondary hazard because of black widow spider and even copperhead snakes. These boxes provide perfect harborage for all types of spider and small snakes in North Carolina. Gloves are recommended along with caution when checking these traps. Additonally sometimes pest control may be required in or around the stations to keep other pests like snails and fireants from destroying the rodent bait.
