About Wolf Spider Control Treatment In Brisbane

Wolf spiders are the most common predators on your lawn. They can track down their prey just like wolves, which is how they get their name. These pests enjoy chasing other insects such as crickets, flies, and other spiders.

The wolf spider enjoys hunting on its own. However, they are often seen wandering around the lawn, searching for their next meal.

Wolf spiders have large hairy bodies and are grey-coloured. Their length can be anything between 1.2 to five centimetres. They can be easily identified by their dark grey or brown markings. If seen under torchlight, the eyes of these creatures shine bright.

Although wolf spiders can be found worldwide, some species are only found in Australia. The garden wolf spider, for example, is a common species found in Australia’s suburban backyards and open forests.

Wolf spiders are commonly found in holes in lawns. They are known to be active at night; hence, they can capture and kill any pests that may be infesting your garden.

Reacting to a Wolf Spider Bite

You must remain calm and not panic if a wolf spider bites you. Apply a cold compress for 20 minutes to the bite site to reduce the pain. In such cases, it is best not to use the pressure immobilization technique as this could worsen the pain. If your symptoms get worse, you must seek medical help.

Keeping Wolf Spiders Away from Your Home

There are several ways to keep wolf spiders away from your home:

  • Seal up any cracks or holes in the foundation or walls of your home to prevent spiders from entering.
  • Keep your home clean and free of clutter, as spiders like to hide in dark, undisturbed areas.
  • Keep outdoor lights off or use yellow “bug lights” as they are less attractive to insects and spiders.
  • Keep windows and doors closed or use screens to keep spiders out.
  • Vacuum or sweep regularly, especially in areas where spiders are commonly found, such as basements, attics, and garages.
  • Regularly check the exterior of your house for any spider webs and remove them.
  • Keep your yard free of tall grass, and other debris that can provide hiding spots for spiders.
  • Keep your pets treated for fleas and ticks, which can attract spiders.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I Identify a Wolf Spider?

These spiders are huge and primarily grey or brown. The exact shade of their body depends on the habitat they are found in. Wolf spiders are known to have eight eyes, out of which two are very large and prominent. 

Are Wolf Spiders Aggressive?

Wolf spiders are often seen attacking other insects and spiders. In rare cases, they bite humans. Since they aren’t too aggressive, they are seen attacking humans only if they feel threatened.

Do Wolf Spiders Spin Webs?

No, wolf spiders (family Lycosidae) do not spin webs like many other spider species. They are ground-dwelling spiders that rely on actively hunting their prey rather than using webs for trapping. Wolf spiders are known for their excellent eyesight and agility, using their speed and stealth to chase and capture their prey. They typically live in burrows or other sheltered areas and use silk to create protective egg sacs or retreats, but not for constructing intricate webs for prey capture.
