Wolf Spider

Wolf Spider

Have you ever stepped on or touched a large spider, only to see hundreds of tiny spiderlings jump off and run out in all directions? It was probably a wolf spider. Other than carrying their babies on their back for several days, other characteristics of a wolf spider include hunting and pursuing their prey (no webs needed), large and quick, commonly found around home exteriors and garages, and they are not poisonous.

Do not attempt to pick-up with your bare hands though, for they can inflict a painful bite. A safe, humane way to remove a wolf spider from your home is to place a cup over it, slide a thick sheet of paper or cardboard under the cup and spider, and release it at a distance from the home. There are several different species of wolf spiders of varying colors and patterns. Glueboards can also be an effective way of catching these pests.

Bee Good!
