I was walking my property one night with my headlamp attached to my forehead
looking for whatever may be crawling around, when I noticed hundreds maybe
thousands of flickering lights. Little shining stars appeared to be all over the grass. I
knew what is was, having experienced this many times, however never with these
numbers. That's right, Wolf spiders everywhere. Most were an inch or less, however I
did see a few larger ones...awesome!
Wolf spiders are a diverse group and can be found most anywhere, including your
house. Rest easy though, they normally cannot live for more than a day or so. If you
see one in your home it's there by accident. Just sweep it out.
