Advertisement Had this fella in my window now for about a month I believe. I also believe it molted the other day. I'm pretty sure it's a wolf spider, but not entirely sure. It's caught quite a few small bugs and I throw small ants in often since we have them a lot in our kitchen (yard has a lot of sand, so we get a lot of ants). Last week I observed it bouncing around the web it made in the corner. I've been the only one who has really got to see it out of its web.. Often when I'm at the sink, it seems to pop out, and run around. Earlier I was leaning over the counter to get a better look at its markings when it darted out of the web in my direction until I screamed and it ran back. My boyfriend seems to think it's caught on to who I am and recognizes me. He also thinks the spider "likes" me, if you will. Can spiders recognize humans in any way, be it vibrations or anything like that.. And am I correct on this being a type of wolf spider? Edit: normally, I'm terrified of spiders. Always been borderline arachnophobic, but trying to be better about it. They just creep me out. So the fact I've let iy live this long let alone in my kitchen window is amazing. Haha, but it's been fascinating also watching it eat and build its web.
