Pesticides or Black Widows??

Apparently a woman in Seattle found a black widow in her grapes from Costco! As a fellow Costco shopper and SPECIFICALLY a lover of Costco grapes I am disgusted!

Since farmers are moving away from the use of pesticides- it has become increasingly more common to use spiders to keep other insects away. So if you are going to buy your grapes from Costco--or anywhere for that matter (ESP if you buy organic) CHECK FOR SPIDERS before ingesting!! And don't forget to always wash your fruit.

Oh but the good news is Seattle lady trapped the black widow and is donating it to her local zoo! I know you were all worried.
