Wolf spiders are a common sight in Plano but not one that most homeowners want to see inside their homes. Wolf spiders are large and fast for common house spiders, and the very sight of them in a home can cause fear and anxiety. If antagonized, wolf spiders can indeed defend themselves and deliver a painful bite that feels like a bee sting. Children and pets can frequently come into contact with spiders due to natural curiosity. 

Don't let wolf spiders — or any spiders, for that matter — get between you and the full enjoyment of your home. All-Safe Pest & Termite is your Plano pest control company of choice for all forms of pest control. Call us today, and let us get rid of wolf spiders in your home.

How To Identify Wolf Spiders

Wolf spiders are some of the largest spiders in Plano. They are large, considerably hairy, and light brown to gray, with light stripes running lengthwise down their bodies. They are not web builders but use their extreme running speed to catch prey. If you see a large spider in your home that demonstrates a high rate of speed as it tries to get away from you, chances are it's a wolf spider.

Wolf spiders are common visitors to Plano homes, but other venomous spiders may come inside, also. Don't take a chance with spiders. All-Safe Pest & Termite knows how to identify different species and how to get rid of spiders. 

Wolf Spiders Are Less Aggressive Than Other Spiders

Are wolf spiders dangerous? Thankfully, though wolf spiders look scary and move fast, they are not overly aggressive. They are solitary hunters and tend to avoid contact with humans. They will defend themselves if they are provoked or harassed, however, and they are capable of biting. Children and pets sometimes unintentionally provoke these attacks due to their curiosity. In short, wolf spiders in the home introduce the potential for bad interactions between you and them, and no homeowner wants that. 

All-Safe Pest & Termite does not want you or any member of your family to have bad interactions with house pests. We know how to keep spiders out of your house, and we want to keep them out of yours. Call us today for all of your Plano pest control needs. 

Easy And Effective Wolf Spider Prevention Tips

Here are some easy ways to minimize your chances of encountering wolf spiders:

  • Tightly seal outside trash containers. Trash draws bugs. Spiders will come after them.
  • Keep vegetation away from your home. Spiders will be less likely to come inside.
  • Minimize yard debris. Wolf spiders love to hide in terrain features in order to hunt.
  • Minimize outside lights at night. Lights draw bugs, and spiders think they are tasty.
  • Seal your home. The fewer opportunities for spiders to come inside, the better.

Following these techniques will help minimize spiders in your home but won't prevent them from coming in eventually. If you find spiders in your house, contact All-Safe Pest & Termite. We know how to keep spiders away and how to get rid of them if they try to come back.
