Brown Widows: Not So Bad

When I first heard of brown widows I jumped to the conclusion were black widows only a different color. I've been poking around a bit, though, and they a) are not the same spider, nor, apparently particularly dangerous. The bite hurts, but that's it. This UCR article on Brown Widows is a fairly good example of what I found, and I'd say they are a reliable source, so it seems that I can go back to gardening among the rose bushes in peace untroubled by the five I know live there.
