Looks like it is! The eye pattern is certainly that of a wolf spider.

Do you know how they are getting in? If the heat is unusual and record breaking for where you live you can set up a cooling station outdoors so they can eat insects while staying cool and hydrated. To be discreet and so people won’t find you too weird you can just keep soil under shrubby damp.

A friendly side note – Hobo spiders are no longer considered toxic to humans as reported by the CDC. The former reports claiming the bites could cause necrosis were never validated to actually be Hobo spider bites.
All studies to test those claims, as well as any verified hobo spider bites on record, have shown no skin reactions in humans.

Thank you. Your link is contaminated with pop-up scam advertising so I couldn’t actually read it under the free Walmart gift card scam windows. I’ll check for a direct report from the CDC for a link to post.
