Supermarket Grapes Have Black Widow On Them!!

| Filed under: FoodScary!Spider

This is terrifying and somewhat familiar…

Remember that woman who found her bananas covered in super venomous Brazilian wandering spiders??

Well this is equally terrifying!

A woman in PA was washing some red grapes when she felt something brush against her finger. She dropped the colander of grapes into her sink when she saw the spider.

A spider expert, who was later consulted, confirmed the woman's search results: it was a black widow spider.

Black widows are actually good for farming, keeping away bad pests that could ruin crops.

Though as farmers go more organic and use less pesticides, these spiders are more commonly making it through the harvest and bagging process.

Luckily, no one was bitten or injured!

| Filed under: Maria MenounosScary!SpiderScorpion

Maria Menounos got to hold containers of Black Widows, Tarantulas, Scorpions and more at The Grove.

Whatever you do, Maria Menounos, be very, verrrrrry careful…

Do NOT drop those containers!!

Maria was out and about, hanging at The Grove in sunny El Lay, when she got the chance to hold several containers full of some seriously terrifying creatures.

She posted a pic (above) to instagram and wrote:

"Don't mess with me..from @epicthemovie Black widow spider, Wolf spider, Emperor Scorpions Galliath bird eating tarantula & Arizona blonde tarantula"

Jeez!! If she dropped those and was bit by just one of those guys, she'd be in a world of hurt.

We guess there's a kind of strength you get from holding containers full of certain doom.

Maria is a master of death! She is the queen spider!! LOLz!

Lookin' good there, Maria! You so brave!!

Spider Infestation Causes Air Traffic Controller Evacuation

| Filed under: Scary!Attack!Spider

At Kansas City International Airport (KCI), radar controllers were actually forced to evacuate due to a spider infestation!!

An employee was bitten, the third employee in a few weeks, and it caused enough of a panic to force the evacuation of the building.

During the evac, as many as five flights were delayed up to 15 minutes.

Exterminators were called in, and they discovered a nest egg underneath the radar controllers' desks.

They believe the bites were from a mama spider who was protecting her babies. We can understand that instinct but that doesn't make it any less terrifying!!

Check out the video (above) to learn a little more about how some tiny spiders scared a whole building of people!
