Deadly spiders hitch ride to Denmark

A black widow spider was found in the back seat of an imported car from the U.S.

A man from Ølstykke outside of Copenhagen got the shock of his life recently when he discovered the small black spiders swarming on the garage floor were young black widows.

Apparently, a poisonous black widow had snuck into Denmark via the back seat of the car he had imported from Arizona last year.

'It was quite a nerve-wracking discovery. And the most frightening thing is that my daughter's room is less than two metres away,' he told public broadcaster DR.

The garage will now be fumigated in order to kill the widows.

The black widow is notorious for its toxic venom and different species are found in North America, Australia and South Africa.
