Wolf Spider

I have them in my house. Not very much but see them on the floor in every room, one spider every few day. How to eliminate them? Thanks.

2 ways (of many) to reduce spider inhabitation are to remove clutter in the home. Spiders like quiet undisturbed areas. Sticky traps placed against the wall will also trap most spiders. Wolf spiders do not spin webs, they just live where they are comfortable. Using a vacuum cleaner will also eliminate many spiders. Good luck.

Spiders are predators and feed on other insects. Eliminating their food source is important. Spraying baseboards, windowsills, and door thresholds with residual insecticide tends to control most household insects. A monthly treatment of foundation and perimeter of home with residual insecticide tends to keep insect pests away from structure. Sealing all gaps around windows and doors and in foundation prevents insects from entering the home.
