Do black widow spiders live alone?

Where there is one, you'll find more. Hubby does a evening hunt every three weeks or so during the summer and usually finds five or six at a time outside the house. So yes, you should tell them so they can spray the area where you found it.

They like dark damp places so you might find some nearby in the right type of environment but they are solitary. I would see a bunch watering when there were covered pipes in the ground for watering. I could tell before I even saw one by the type of web in the hole and once I watered they would come up.
