Brent’s Backyard Bug Adventures: Brown Widows

Hello and welcome back to Backyard Bug Adventures! Brent Geppert here. I am the toys and games manager at Educational Insights. Okay so tonight we’re going to go on a bug adventure. We’re going to look for the elusive, the amazing, Brown Widow. Not the Black Widow—the Brown Widow Spider. Let’s go check ‘em out. I’ve got tons of them in my Backyard!

So you might be wondering, why are we going to be looking for the Brown Widows? What about the Black Widows? Well, pretty much all of the Black Widows have been replaced by Brown Widows, basically a cousin of the Black Widow. They are similar to the Black Widow, but as you can see—here, we found one—they are a little bit different.

They have the red hourglass, as you can see, on the bottom of the abdomen. Actually, their bite is not as venomous as the Black Widow, but we still want to keep our distance as much as possible.
We’ve got a nice Brown Widow here. Check her out! You can see the red hourglass. You see how her legs are striped? That’s the telltale sign of a Brown Widow. Earlier I said that we should keep our distance, but you know what, I can’t help myself. I have to try to at least capture one for our bug viewer! I don’t recommend doing this at home for any kids that are watching. If you’re really careful, these are not too difficult to catch.

Here is our Brown Widow Spider. Beautiful example, look at that perfect view of the hourglass abdomen and striped legs.
Alright, well thanks for joining me on Backyard Bug Adventures. Hopefully you had a good time watching us explore my backyard for Brown Widows. Believe me, there’s all kinds of great spiders and other kinds of bugs that come out at night. So hopefully, you can have your very own nighttime bug adventure as well. So let’s return our lady-friend back to her home and we will see you next time! Take Care.

Wild Wednesdays: Brent’s Backyard Bug Adventures!

Hi and welcome to Backyard Bug Adventure! My name is Brent Geppert and I manage the toys and games for Educational Insights. Out of all the toys and games we do, the ones I love the most are the ones about bugs, and that is why we are doing the backyard bug adventure in my backyard!

So bugs are amazing and what’s incredible is we’re surrounded by them. Some of the coolest bugs are in your own backyard or even your favorite park! So today, we’re going to try to find some baby ladybugs. They are kind of hard to find because they don’t look like adult ladybugs. So lets go try to find some in my apple tree!

We finally found a baby ladybug. He’s right here. Let’s see if we can get him to crawl on my hand… very gentle with him. There he is. Be very gentle when you’re handling bugs. There he is! A baby ladybug. Now it doesn’t look anything like an adult ladybug, but when it gets older, he or she will develop their spots and become a ladybug. Let go put him in our GeoSafari Bug Viewer!

So now I have the baby ladybug with an adult ladybug in the GeoSafari Jr. Bug Viewer. We get a great view of them. There’s the baby ladybug crawling around trying to look for some aphids probably. Actually, those little black spots that you see next to the adult ladybug are actually old aphids because ladybugs love to eat aphids.

So thanks for joining me on the backyard bug adventure! I’m going to put our friends back on the apple tree, and until next time, see you later, have a great time, get out there and find some cool bugs! Buh-bye

Like us and Let us know on Facebook what other backyard bugs you’d like to learn more about and we’ll choose one respondent to win a GeoSafari® Jr. Talking Bug Net™!
