Advertisement I live in central Virginia, not far from Lake Anna, on a wooded lot adjacent to pasture land. It's an older house and not very tight at all. Over the last few days, I have literally been invaded by female wolf spiders. They're about 1-1/4" leg span, and a very dark brown, almost black. Taking them back outdoors is getting to be a daily routine, and I cupped 5 yesterday evening in the kitchen. I opened my front door two nights ago, and had 13 between my storm door and my regular wood exterior door. That was interesting.... Last night, I went outside, walked around the house with a flashlight and counted 80 (eighty!) wolf spiders on the brickwork, around the windows and screens and between doors. Anyone know why they are doing this? In all this activity, I have only seen one male, and he was nowhere near the females. It's been raining here for what seems like weeks, are they just headed for higher ground? Do they hibernate in colonies and could they be just looking for someplace to winter over? My wife, normally very tolerant, is getting nervous about putting her foot down on one in the dark and threatens to start vacuuming invaders - her standard problem solving method for things that will fit into the tube... Is there something I can do to help them, set up some kind of shelter or something? Is there a market for them, LOL?
