Wolf Spiders In DC, MD & VA
Wolf spiders (genus Lycosidae) are the spiders that probably cause the most concern in homes throughout the greater Washington DC & Baltimore areas. They are characterized by a row of four small anterior eyes above the chelicerae with two very large posterior eye row eyes above them. These large eyes provide wolf spiders with excellent vision, which allows them to see people approaching them, and run away. Many wolf spiders are nocturnal and use a reflective structure inside their eyes to maximize their vision at night. With the larger sized wolf spiders, shining a light towards them, especially at ground level, will allow you to see their reflective eyes from as far away as 10 to 30 feet from the spiders.
Are Wolf Spiders Poisonous?
Though they can appear to be quite fearsome, wolf spiders are typically not considered to be a threat to people. While they may inject venom when they bite to help subdue their prey, their venom is relatively mild for humans, and will rarely result in more than mild pain, swelling, or itchiness. These symptoms typically go away within a few days. A more serious reaction to the venom of a wolf spider may mean that you are allergic to their venom.
If you get bitten by a wolf spider, the site of the bite will have two marks- one from each of the spider's fangs. It will often be red, and may be swollen, or painful to the touch. The following signs may indicate the need for medical treatment for a wolf spider bite:
- Cramping or muscle tightness around the bite
- Headache or dizziness
- A rash or itchiness spreading from the site of the bite
- Hot or cold sweating
- Respiratory difficulty
- Weakness or uncontrollable shaking
