What do wolf spiders look like?

Are wolf spiders venomous?

Like common house spiders, these arachnids are venomous, but their venom is not considered dangerous to humans. If threatened, wolf spiders may bite in defense, and their bites may cause localized pain, redness, and swelling, similar to a bee or wasp sting.

Do wolf spiders make webs?

No, wolf spiders do not build webs to catch their prey. Instead, they are active hunters and use their excellent eyesight to lock onto and chase down insects and other small prey.

Where do wolf spiders live?

Wolf spiders often enter homes while on the hunt for prey. Although they aren’t typically a permanent fixture in structures, they may stick around once inside. Common places to find wolf spiders indoors include under furniture, along walls, and other floor level areas.

How long do wolf spiders live?

Generally speaking, wolf spiders live for a year or less.

What should I do if I see a wolf spider?

If you’ve identified a wolf spider in your home, there’s no need to panic. But you should take action in order to prevent a larger infestation from developing. Also, if you’ve got wolf spiders, there’s a good chance you’ve got insects too. Rather than attempt to get rid of wolf spiders with DIY treatments from the store, contact a pest control company for professional spider treatments.
