Why do I have Wolf Spiders?
These large, hairy spiders are very common in Florida and can cause a great deal of worry for those with arachnophobia. Wolf Spiders occupy a wide range of habitats, most at the ground level. They are common in heavy ground cover such as ivy, items left in your yard, beneath stones, as well as cracks in timber. Luckily, they do not breed in homes and usually only one to a couple will be seen inside.
However, they can still get in your home. Loose screens and cracks under doors, windows and other openings all serve as possible entry points for Wolf Spiders. They may enter your home in search for food, mates, warmth or moisture. They can also be introduced to your home accidentally by brining in items stored in the garage, outdoor plants, outdoor furniture or even wood.
Locating Wolf Spiders in Southwest Florida
The best way to detect the presence of Wolf Spiders in your home is by physically seeing one in your home. This is so because Wolf Spiders are members of the family Lycosidae, which is from the ancient Greek word for wolf. They are robust and agile hunters with excellent eyesight.
They live mostly in solitude and hunt alone, thus they do not spin webs. They use their strength and speed to hunt and have been called sprinters of the spider world. This is why you have to visually see a Wolf Spider as there are no webs they leave behind.
