Spiders! There are many types of spiders found in the Capital Region, but today we are taking a look at one of the most common – the Wolf Spider. These nuisance pests are often found inside houses, especially at night when they hunt. Let’s learn a little more about them.

Wolf Spider Facts:

  1. Wolf spiders chase their prey rather than using a web to catch them
  2. Female wolf spiders can get as large as an inch and a half
  3. There are over 100 species of wolf spiders in North America
  4. Wolf spiders typically enter houses in search of prey and stay at floor level under furniture and along walls
  5. Wolf spiders eat a variety of insects

You can help deter wolf spiders by sealing cracks around your home and repairing torn window screens. A perimeter treatment around your house by a licensed pest control professional can also help prevent wolf spiders from entering your home.
