Anyone here good with spider ID's at all? I found this guy crawling around my office today (not in a viv!), figured it's some sort of wolf spider. He's small, a little smaller than a quarter I'd say.
Haha if only! Then I'd have more vacationBurn down your office, it is the only way to stop them!
That's a good idea, I had no idea that that would work. I have seen some ants crawling around my place this spring, and one made it's way into the viv before I killed it. It's been 3 days after I bought ant traps and I haven't seen another yet!Based on body shape I'd guess wolf spider. It doesn't look like other common venomous spiders I know.
I don't kill wolf spiders in my home. I leave them to keep any potentially harmful ones out---but I put thyme and rosemary oil spray around my tank bases to keep spiders and argentina (sugar) ants away.
Thanks! I'd like to get a better shot of it's face, but I couldn't get it to sit still for long!Yes, I would say that's definatly some type of wolf spider.
We love the jumping spiders in my house. My toddler is seen picking them up so they can hop up his arms. They do not try to bite, either.
We have a couple of baby jumping spiders that are playing 'tag team' at the windowsill where argentine ants have been entering. They are out of luck b/c the ants have stopped coming in for now, plus we had to spray Eco IC² outdoors b/c of some acrobat ants coming inside.
