there is a product called spidernot that keeps most spiders from comming indoors that I have used when I can find it. But it isn't easy to find.

When I first used it I thought it was going to damage the walls but it drys on them and after that the spiders weren't seen again.

Good luck the last thing I would want to see is any of the wolf spiders in my home. I'd have a fit and i'm alot older than 4.

thanks for the info. I dont like spiders either, but these ones really scare me too. They are ugly little critters. My stpe-daughter had one in her bed once.....lol she threw a royal fit.... I think I would have also.

I've forgotten where but somewhere on the forum is my story of the hand spider of Okinawa. I do through a fit when challenged by any big bug especially spiders.

Wolf is actually the family name of a group of spiders some of which are posionous and some of which are not.

They are characterized by being night preditors rather than web spinners. They can jump, and spit and are usually hairy in appearance. Are usually brown or black in color.

The taranchula(sp) is a member of this family.
