Wolf spiders are a nocturnal, solitary spider that hunts their prey instead of catching them in webs. To do this, they use their speed and great sense of sight to get the upper hand on their prey. Wolf spiders are beneficial in helping to control populations of harmful and nuisance insects. They will bite if provoked, but venom typically only produces mild pain, swelling, and itching.

Wolf Spiders - What To Look For

Wolf spiders survive by camouflage, so their color will resemble their preferred environment. They are a variety of browns, grays and blacks. They are a spherical shape between ½ to 2 inches long with hairy bodies. Their eyes are arranged with four small eyes on bottom, two large eyes in the middle and two medium sized eyes on the top. Female wolf spider will carry their egg sacks and young spiders with them.
