What Came Out of This??

We found this sack, nest, cocoon attached to the underside of a palm branch at the widest point near the tree. I can’t seem to find anything similar. It was open on one side. It’s about 4 inches in diameter, an inch deep. It feels like a softer durable cotton with some fuzz around the edges.

Mounds of dirt "on the rocks"

I have quite a few mounds of dirt piled on top on my rock yard. The majority of mounds are situated around my single large tree and also my large agave plant. There are also several holes, approximately 3-4 inches diameter, none of which are located by the tree or plant mounds. The mounds are about 4-5 inches tall and about 6-8 inches round. Do you have any idea what is causing this problem? I am afraid something is going to jump out of the hole and bite me. Help!!!

Black Widow

Good day,

I was wondering if Black Widow spiders lace their webs with venom, whether it be intentional or just residual when fabricating a web. I was working on an old Cessna reciprocating engine that was covered with webs and, after touching the web with my bare hands, my skin started to degrade and expose wounds. After further inspection, I found a Black Widow nestled next to the cylinder cooling fins and it looked like an adult. I didn't perform any hard labor previous to finding the spider that would cause these wounds on my hands. I am not asking out of paranoia. The wounds are minuscule. I am simply asking out of curiosity and appreciate any help in advance.
