I have found little black spiders.

They are smaller than a dime .

Lately I noticed spots on the legs of two that I had to get rid of.

Does anyone know what kind of dark black spider ( very small ) almost looks like a tarantula but miniature...

Oh.. its definately not a Black Widow...

I live in South Carolina...

Okay, now my skin is crawling!

I've got tons of spiders in my yard - many different shapes and sizes and colors. While they give me the heebie geebies, at the same time I can appreciate their beauty.

I've never done any research to identify the 8-legged critters.

I often see tiny black-and-white spiders that jump. They're only about 1/4" long, with black bodies and striped legs. Kind of cute, actually. We often had them at our house (outdoors and inside!) when I was growing up. They're small enough so they don't scare me, but some of the others - yikes!
