Maybe a Wolf Spider but its hard to tell.
I know very little about spiders but thought that is what it may be. I have read up a bit on them. Have any insight? Are they dangerous? I have dogs that are all under three pounds and this was in the house and found a second one half dead perhaps because I had exterminator spray. Anything would be helpful.
Wolf Spiders don’t possess very powerful venom. I have seen studies done on injecting mice or rats with similar kinds of spiders and that there is usually no real effect from their venom. I would say your dogs should be fine if bitten by the vast majority of spiders in North America.
Thank you. Hoping having the exterminator spray outside will help. I have a macaw so I don’t like anything sprayed indoors. Thanks again for your feedback. Much appreciated.
