What kind of threat is this t
What kind of threat is this type? I have a couple girls..
And how do you keep them out of the house because I spray frequently..(once a week)

 
Not much threat at all...
Unless harmed, Wolf Spiders won't bite. They aren't dangerously venomous, so it's more of a lesson to be nice to them. They are good mothers, carrying their egg sacs around with them and then letting the babies ride on her back until they can fend for themselves. Wolf Spiders hunt on foot and do not use a web, and are great for pest control.

The only way to keep spiders from entering the home is to make sure all cracks and crevices to the outside are sealed. Pesticide sprays are ineffective against them, and much more dangerous than even the dangerously venomous species.
