You are likely to find all kinds of critters in a car! Black widow spiders are by far the most common hitch hikers here in California. I used to live in the foothills above Bakersfield in the 3000' high, buckeye/oak forest and I had a terrible time with wood rats and squirrels storing oak acorns and dry dog food pellets in EVERYTHING. Had to take the cover off my carburetor air cleaners every month or so and clean out the 'deposits'. When I finally got the heads for my hemi out from under my work bench to prep them for my engine, the water jackets were jam-packed full of acorns and dog food!

YUP! Hornets,Wasps,Mice, Chipmunks and Raccoons. The rodents steal all the cotton stuffing from the seats and build nests, then stock them with nuts and cat/dog food. Had a Raccoon get into my 65 Ford pickup thru the floor plate (engine and trans out) and destroy the front seat (looked like a cotton and foam explosion).

If it was from Louisiana, it could have been a brown recluse spider, & you definitely don't want to get bitten by one of those.
