How to Get Rid of Wolf Spiders

While wolf spiders provide many pest control benefits in your yard and garden, most homeowners, preferring their spiders to remain outdoors can implement some common sense pest control initiatives to exclude wolf spiders and their prey from their homes.

  • Clear all clutter and debris from around the outside of your home.
  • Keep mulch and other heavy ground cover vegetation away from your home’s foundation.
  • Use outdoor lighting as little as possible as lighting attracts the wolf spider’s prey.
  • Seal all cracks and crevices around doors, windows and your home’s foundation.
  • Clear cardboard boxes and clutter from your home’s interior.
  • Vacuum regularly to avoid attracting insects that come indoors in search of food.
