This is the third spider of this type I found in my basement today; the first two surprised me in the shower this morning and they got smashed with a can of shaving cream.

Any idea what kind it is? Poisonous?

What works best to kill these mother effers and keep them out?

Harmless wolf spider/grass spider.

Wolf spider...

I don't know if it's poisonous but I wouldn't eat it to find out

bug spray works

Meh. Step on it if it bugs you that much. Otherwise, just let those go...they eat other bugs.

Banana for scale.

I've got those here too. Spraying the outside of the house keeps em out.

Fuck spiders.

#spiderlivesdontmatter

I would recommend nothing smaller than .40.  If they are on the move, .410  #9 shot works best.

Glue traps, ortho home defense, and napalm.

Was a Wolf spider. Harmless but bite stings.

Wolf spider, they kill other bugs.

Did the temperature outside change? If not, there is something in your house that they have found to eat.






If you want, kill the ones you see, but don't go looking for them. They are doing more good than you can think.

Do not listen to this guy.  This spider is a trained killer and a master of deception.  You need to find a weapon, preferably something that can cause serious blunt force trauma, like a sledge hammer.

Better yet, get some kerosene, and soak your house in it.  You know what to do.

If only there was like a whole entire profession dedicated to killing house hold bugs.....


Oh yeah there is, call them.

THIS IS CRAZY, try it. Put on an led headlamp and walk out in your yard at night. The ground will sparkle, take a closer look, they are all these spiders looking back at you. Their eyes are very reflective. I lived in Fl and had thousands in my yard, I have since moved to NC and I have even more here. Enjoy, it's freaky as hell.

You can't be serious. Y'all crack me up, bunch of tough guys afraid of a spider.

Grass Spider. They look similar to Wolf Spiders, but aren't. They spin funnel shaped webs with a flat sheet in front of the opening.

I went camping down in North Carolina a few months ago. Sitting around the fire pit and then I saw about ten billion spiders crawling up my leg... needless to say I slept in the bed of my truck that night.

Maybe I have some weak bug spray but the wolf spiders in my house don't seem to mind it at all.

Wolf spiders are pretty chill if you respect their authority.
Link Posted: 8/31/2015 9:58:35 PM EDT
Grass spider. They will bite, but it's. Not dangerous. Like a mosquito bite reaction
Link Posted: 8/31/2015 10:11:18 PM EDT
I have them in my basement an let them live, they eat other bugs like annoying crickets!

Don't use glue traps.  They trap everything you don't want trapped.  It's a freaking harmless spider for fucks sake, people need to grow a set of balls and man the fuck up and not turn into screaming little girls around spiders and snakes.  God help us if the shit hits the fan and a spider crosses the path of some of the nutless wonders out there.

An apple is the scientific fruit to use for spider comparisons.

LOL, that little thing.  We have a backroad on, that the tarantulas are carpeting during the monsoon season.  It looks like the road it a moving carpet.

Yep!!! And it has to be a headlamp, whatever light you use has to be close to your head to see the reflections, holding the light low won't work. Almost like blue/white sparkling diamonds! A few days a year you can see thousands of them all over.
