Those scare me to death even though its rare to die from their bite kids and elders are more likley to because their skin is thicker. Their fangs are not that long. I'm more scared of brown recluses their fast and aggressive once seen one chase someone scary

Blackwidow's just make you hurt for a while, the reculuse really ****s your **** up.

Nothing like a giant gaping wound of rotting flesh.

The last confirmed death caused by a black widow in NV was in the 50's. He was in his 70's and had a heart condition. BWs tend to not be very aggressive and are reclusive.

Brown recluse is not native to Nevada but it can be found and is pretty rare. We do have something called a desert recluse that looks similar but is not very poisonous in comparison.

I'm more worried about bed bugs then spiders.

Back when I did my front yard, I had 4 or 5 companies quote mine and I ended up going with Showready Landscape. Owners name is Ed. I have ZERO complaints with what they did for me and he was substantially cheaper then everyone else that quoted it. I actually was blown away at the range of price quotes and they were all working off the same materials list I provided basically.

807-9788 Ed is the owner, nice dude... They knocked out my entire front yard in a day.


No offense Marn... Oh, and your part will be in my entry way in about 15 minutes...

Marn you should check out the giant scorpions in the median on Durango where it goes over the Summerlin Prkwy. Now those are huge! Giant suckers, 3 ft tall!

Dang Khris, I am sorry I just got on here and saw your post about needing help with recovery. Unfortunately my rig is out of commission right now and I don't think the FJ would do any better than your exploder. Good luck man!

Are there any places open on Saturday that carry a wide variety of stock steel? I need some small steel tubing that fits tightly around another piece I already have. I tried Home Depot and Lowes but they don't have the right size. I'm hoping you all can suggest someone open during the weekend that might have it. Thanks!!!

Cal Ranch or Ace Hardware might, and depending on how small of tubing your thinking you might want to consider some of the hobby shops too. Curtis steel and places like that aren't open on Saturdays unfortunately
