How To Identify Wolf Spiders

  • Wolf spiders are large and hairy, often causing them to be mistaken for tarantulas.
  • They range in size but can grow up to an inch in body length, not including leg span.
  • Typically brown, grey, black, or tan with dark markings, most notably a Union Jack impression on their back.
  • Unlike other spiders, wolf spiders have eyes arranged in three rows, with two large eyes in the middle.
  • They do not build webs but are ground dwellers and can be spotted running across the floor.

Wolf Spiders Habits

  • Wolf spiders are nocturnal and are often seen hunting at night.
  • They are solitary spiders that roam alone, not in groups.
  • Wolf spiders are fast runners and excellent hunters, often chasing down their prey.
  • They prefer to live in sheltered areas such as under stones, in grassy fields, or in leaf litter.
  • In homes, they are commonly found in basements, garages, and lower-level areas

How To Prevent Wolf Spiders

  • Keep your home free of clutter, especially in basements and garages where they might hide.
  • Seal cracks and crevices in your home's exterior to prevent them from entering.
  • Reduce outdoor lighting at night which attracts the insects that wolf spiders feed on.
  • Regularly vacuum and dust to remove any spiders, webs, and egg sacs.
  • For persistent wolf spider issues, contact Marett Pest Control for a comprehensive inspection and tailored control plan.
