Wolf Spider

Wolf Spider (Trochosa Ruricola)

Appearance

  • A grey or brownish-coloured spider (with a pale band on the carapace) that can grow to 3.5 cm in length.
  • Wolf spiders are hairy and have long legs (giving them the ability to move quickly).
  • The female is usually larger than the male.

Life Cycle

  • Impregnated females carry their eggs on their abdomen (the eggs are attached to spinnerets).
  • Upon hatching, the young spiderlings live on their mother’s back for the first few weeks of life.
  • The male has a lifespan of approximately 12 months, whilst the female can live for several years.

Habits

  • Wolf spiders are ground-based spiders that like to wander. They typically live in shallow burrows, bushes and under leaf piles.
  • They generally hunt at night for insects, such as crickets, bugs and ants.
  • A bite from a wolf spider can cause swelling, itchiness and ulceration (in rare cases).
