Wolf Spider

Our remedy for wolf spider control

First, contact us. Controlling other insect populations inside your home will reduce the attraction of wolf spiders to the interior structure of your home or business. Generally, the wolf spider prefers to live outdoors and will only remain inside if the food source is promising. A professional application to the perimeter of the exterior structure will prevent insects from gaining access indoors as well.

Rose recommends the Healthy Home Maintenance Plan for wolf spider control as well as other occasional invaders.

How to Identify a Wolf Spider

Appearance

Dark brownish grey with lighter striped markings on legs. Females are typically 3/8 to 1 3/8″ in length, while male wolf spiders are about 1/4 to 3/4″ long. They tend to be big and hairy, which alarms people, but they are just considered a nuisance, not a harmful spider.

Habitat

Wolf spiders are found in nature under stones, wood, leaves and other low-lying debris. Indoors, the wolf spider prefers floor-level turf along walls, under furniture and in basements, where other insects may be found.

Wolf spiders hunt during the night and rest in sheltered spots during the day. They’re commonly seen by people, too because they’re fast runners. They’ll only bite when provoked or handled. People react differently to insect bites, so it’s important to seek medical attention if you are concerned about an insect bite.

Diet

Like most other spiders, the wolf spider preys on other insects. They don’t capture their prey in webs though. The wolf spider is super fast and prefers to run after its prey and capture them with their long legs.

I Highly recommend Franklin AND Daniel!​

“Franklin has been providing us services for almost a decade. I live between Lake Michigan and Wolf Lake. I had spiders outside and inside, some so large (wolf spiders) they needed license plates! We also have mice in our garage. They spray the outside of our home 3x a year and for almost a decade, my home is spider and bug free. Mice are rarely seen. Daniel is our rep and is amazing. He’s a welcome site when he arrives and does a thorough job every time with exceptional customer service skills- I hope he remains our service provider for the duration in my home. Highly recommend Franklin AND Daniel!​.”
