Plague of Spiders

I have killed about 30 brown widow spiders in the past week. It is remarkable to me that it is possible for so many spiders to have been supported off of such a tiny back yard. Apparently the plague of brown widows which has descended on Southern California has not slowed down.

So far I have only seen one spider on my property that was not a brown widow spider. It was a [bold jumper spider]( A native, mostly harmless spider which is one of the most impressive looking spiders I have seen. Now, if I can just figure out how to get them to out-compete the brown widows.
