Find a container that is impossible to escape from.Tea jars, jam jars, and any other jars are great because the lid is screwed on, and no spider can escape from that unless they've been working out.
Put a little Vaseline or something slippery around the top ring of the jar.This will prevent your widow from trying to climb out.
Before you go catching your spider, you may want to research if it is legal in the area you are in.While trying to catch one, you won't need safety where unless you do something stupid. All you need is a container, and a stick/tongs. use the stick or tongs to nudge it into the container. They are slow spiders that can't jump or fly, it is easy!
Put a small flower pot or something similar in the jar.Black widows are shy creatures and would enjoy a place to hide.
Put the jar in a safe place.If you have cats, it's best to put the jar in a place where they don't go. The garage is potentially the safest place for the widow; it also makes them feel more comfortable.
When feeding the widow, be sure to look at where she is before you go throwing food in there.They will eat crickets, and most any other bug you put in there.
Try not to disturb her too much.Most likely, black widows might try to rest similar to spiders. Trying to disturb it will get it agitated and bite you, leaving you injured.

- If you are worried about getting bitten but you want a black widow, see if you can find a male. They aren't as venomous.
- If you have arachnophobia (a fear of spiders), don't get one. That is unless you want to overcome your fear for spiders.
- Plastic webs are good with small spiders.
- Don't hold your widow...and if you are stupid enough to do so, be aware of the risks. Do not squeeze or apply any pressure to the Widow, as it will take such to be a threat towards its life and be compelled to bite. If you are bitten, seek medical attention immediately, but remain calm.
- The likelihood of your death, if you obtain medical attention immediately, is extremely slim. This, however, is not a pass to be foolish...these animals are best left admired without physical touch.
