Are Wolf Spiders In Lathrop, CA Dangerous?

Despite their fear-inspiring names, wolf spiders are not actually dangerous. Although it is true that their bites can hurt and may cause some irritation and swelling, they by are not a major threat to your health. Wolf spiders are, however, a serious nuisance when they get inside our homes. They are sure to give you a spook if they catch you off guard when you are looking through storage areas.

One thing wolf spiders do indicate, however, is the presence of other pests in your home.

  • Make sure all of your piping and waterworks are flowing properly, and that they are leak free.
