Southern Illinois Shares our World with Wolf Spider

This is one character I do not want to meet up with. It seems that there are more critters out this year than in the past. If you meet up with a wolf spider beware

The wolf spider is robust and agile and has good eyesight as well. Three things that are getting less and less on me. They like to live and hunt alone pouncing on the prey when they find it Wolf spiders are capable of defensive bites and some species from South America can leave bites that will need medical attention. These spiders are beneficial to us humans though as they hunt and eat bugs. If you are bitten you may notice swelling, mild pain, and mild pain and itching.

Southern Illinois provides the perfect habitat to these spiders as they often live in shrublands, woodland, wet coastal forest, and suburban gardens.
