  • How can I prevent wolf spiders in the future?

    Keeping wolf spiders out of your house is easier than trying to get rid of them once they’re already inside. These tips will help you prevent wolf spiders:

    - Seal entry points into your house, such as cracks, gaps, and holes.

    - Install screens on your windows and doors, and make sure they are free of holes or tears.

    - Make sure that no other pests are present in your house.

    By making it difficult for wolf spiders to get into your house and by giving them no reason to want to get into your house, you can keep wolf spiders out of your house.

  • How do I get rid of wolf spiders?

    If you start finding wolf spiders in your house, you can try to get rid of them as you see them, or you can contact the professionals at Gecko Pest Control. We offer spider control services to rid your home of its wolf spider problem. More importantly, we can help you determine if your wolf spider problem is the result of another pest problem. If it is, we can help resolve that pest problem to ensure your home is pest-free.

  • Where will I find wolf spiders?

    Wolf spiders like to spend the majority of their time in out-of-the-way areas. You won’t see them hanging out in the middle of your kitchen floor. If they get into your house, they’ll spend most of their time on the ground level or in the basement. They’ll stick to the edges of rooms, stay under furniture, or find other spots where they can hide.

    When outdoors, wolf spiders have similar habits. They don’t want to be out in the open, so they are usually found under rocks, leaves, woodpiles, or other items.

  • Why do I have a wolf spider problem?

    Wolf spiders usually come inside while hunting for food. Although your home is not their first choice for lodging, if they get inside, they might decide to stick around, especially if there are plenty of pests available for them to eat.

  • What are wolf spiders?

    Wolf spiders are large spiders that are dark brown with lighter markings on their bodies and legs. Female wolf spiders are larger than males, growing to almost an inch and a half in size. With solid bodies and thick legs, wolf spiders are often hairy, which adds to their frightening appearance.

    Unlike most spiders, wolf spiders do not build webs to catch their food. Instead, they hunt their prey by chasing them down, much like wolves do. Wolf spiders are fast runners, which aids them in their ability to overtake the pests they eat.
