What Is a Wolf Spider?

A wolf spider is a type of spider that belongs to the family Lycosidae. It is named for its hunting behavior, which resembles that of a wolf. Wolf spiders are known for their agile and fast movements, are typically brown or gray, and have a robust body shape. These spiders have good eyesight and use it to actively hunt for prey instead of relying on webs to catch their food.

How to Identify Wolf Spiders

Identifying wolf spiders in your house can be done by observing their physical characteristics and behaviors. Here are some key features to help you identify them:

  • Size and Appearance – Wolf spiders are typically larger than other common spiders, with a body length ranging from 0.4 to 1.4 inches (10 to 35 mm). They have stout bodies and long, hairy legs. Their coloration can vary but is often brown, gray, or black, with distinct markings or patterns on their bodies.
  • Eye Arrangement – Wolf spiders typically have eight eyes arranged in three rows. The top row consists of four small eyes, the middle row has two large forward-facing eyes, and the bottom row has two medium-sized eyes.
  • Hunting Behavior – If you observe a spider actively moving and hunting instead of residing in a web, it may be a wolf spider.

Where to Inspect for Wolf Spiders

When inspecting for wolf spiders, it’s important to focus on what attracts wolf spiders to the house. Here are some common areas to inspect:

  • Gardens and Flower Beds – Wolf spiders may hide in vegetation, under leaves, or among ground-level plants.
  • Mulch or Wood Piles – These spiders can seek shelter in organic materials like mulch or piles of firewood.
  • Under Rocks or Logs – Wolf spiders often take refuge under rocks, logs, or other debris.
  • Entry Points – Check around doors, windows, and foundation cracks for any potential entry points where spiders could enter your home.

How to Keep Wolf Spiders Away

Start by sealing any cracks or gaps in doors, windows, and foundations to limit their entry points. Regularly declutter and clean both indoor and outdoor areas to remove potential hiding spots. Trim vegetation near your home, clear away leaf litter, and keep wood piles at a distance. Install door sweeps and properly fitted screens on windows to prevent spider intrusion. Consider using yellow or sodium vapor lights for outdoor lighting, as they are less attractive to insects, which in turn reduces the prey available to spiders.
