Look out, as the weather cools, you may have some scary, hairy unwanted house guests. Get ready to the invasion of 8-Eyed Wolf Spiders, and yes, they have fangs!

DNA Info is reporting that the invasion of these scary arachnids is coming this fall to homes in Illinois. If you have cracks in your foundation or walls, better get them sealed up, quick.

These aren't small spiders, some are longer than an inch. To make things worse, some are carrying a batch of live young on their backs. Imagine hundreds or thousands of Wolf Spider babies crawling around your home.

As the weather cools, the spiders will be leaving their outside habitats and seek refuge into your house, where the temperature is warmer.

The spiders will crawl into your dwelling, but they also can jump onto you as you pass by, hitching a ride.

Sounds like a nightmare! But, you can do something about it.  Get off your smartphone for a moment and go outside and walk around your home. Look for cracks and seal them up. Use caulk to seal window frames and door frames.

By the way, if you see a Wolf Spider, don't squash it! Catch it in a container and relocate it outside. Spiders will do more good outside of your home because they consume:

  • Mosquitoes
  • Flies
  • Ants
  • and other insects

Just prepare and you should be safe.
