we have black widows here all the time. They hang out in the corners of the house and are usually outside. You can find them by finding their unorganized web/it looks like an old disheveled web, and are impossible to miss. In the summer, we can find 5 or so new ones outside every week. I wouldn't bother getting a buy guy out because they have to be sprayed directly. They are non aggressive and tend to hide, especially during the day, so I don't usually worry too much even though I have dogs and small kids. I'm very careful not to stick my hand in storage and to keep clothes and piles off the floor both inside and outside. We kill them by smashing them quickly with a shoe, so it's not as bad for them
