Large Wolf spider, between 3.5-4 inches, biggest one I have seen yet. That is standard brick on the house, you can judge the size from that.

All spiders are venomous, but only a few are capable of harming people. A wolf spider is not dangerous to humans.

No, but they do give a painful bite. I had to kill him(her), kids play in the yard often.
Felt bad though.

Neat! 1 Wolf Spider will keep your garage free of other less savory critters.

You need to put a warning on the thread title before Dr.Fridge wanders in here by mistake.

There would have been no bad feelings on my part. Eliminate with extreme prejudice.

Believe me, he is far more interested in avoiding you. Besides, he's going to be holed up in the darkest, dampest corner in the place.

Man you must have a very good camera!!! My "spider" policy is if their in my living space I kill them, if they are not I leave them alone, good kill

I saw one when I was about 12 or 13 in the basement about that size, I ran out screaming like a little girl.

It's not that bad, we are a bit on the edge of rural. Established city neighborhoods are pretty tame.

Cute spider. Especially since I'm sitting 4000 miles away.

Actually that was just my backup, the older 2 megapixel Canon A60 with Macro mode on, my main, the 6 megapixel Canon S3, had dead batteries.

If I had not found it under my Jeep that I crawl under daily (restoration project) I would have let him live. I wish I had relocated him out to the wood, but he moved too fast to capture, so I sprayed him with Orange-guard.

My wife and I keep all spiders alive in our house, unless it's either 1: a brown recluse or black widow, or 2: in our bed.


Jumping spiders and wolf spiders are the best to keep in the house, because they are territorial, and they both hunt other, bad spiders.

Brown recluses are not territorial, they can be almost like a colony. Use other spiders to keep them in check.

Here's another shot that gives a better scale/size comparison next to the brick.

Standard brick dimensions: 2-1/4 x 3-1/2 x 8 inches.

Yeah, killing spiders doesn't make me feel bad even a little. Where I live, it's you or the critters.

We had fuckers like that in the basement of our old house. Occasionally the bastards would jump on you and scare the living shit out of you. I was a kid when we lived there and still hate them with a passion till this day. ugh...............

I'm OK around spiders unless they're crawling on me, then I freak the fuck out. Same way with most insects. Must be the barbed feet.

Next time you go in the yard at night bring a flashlight and sweep the perimiter. Thay are one of the few spiders who's eyes glow, by glow I mean reflect light not glow (sorry no zombie spiders.) Down here by Lubbock if I stand outside I can probably see at least 30
