Wolf Spider Bite


Generally speaking, the wolf spider bite is not dangerous to humans. The most common symptoms after a wolf spider bite are limited to short-term pain around the bitten area and/or itchiness and swelling. Applying an ice pack to the affected area will often relieve pain and reduce swelling. In a few cases, the wolf spider bite can however lead to prolonged pain, severe swelling, light-headedness, nausea and a rapid pulse. If the symptoms persist, it is a good idea to seek medical attention.

The name Wolf spider is used for over 2300 different spider species in the family Lycosidae. These species vary in size, habits and distribution, and can be found all over the world. The family contains 104 different genera and since this family is so diverse, it is naturally impossible to know exactly how a particular wolf spider bite will affect a person. How much venom that is injected can also vary. Individual variations, such as sensitivity to the particular venom and underlying health problems will also affect a persons’ resilience towards a wolf spider bite.
