My garden seems to have quite a number of burrowing wolf spiders (google search indicates this species), I’m sure that the 20-odd I’ve counted so far classifies as an infestation when one gets the heebie jeebies each time a new burrow is discovered.
Before I go down the path of calling a pest control company (recommendations would also be appreciated), I was wondering if anyone had any knowledge about these critters? My basic maths of ‘if one spider has a hundred babies, and they have babies’ just horrifies me, it’s time to have this looked into.
It also doesn’t help to recall the story of the Newcastle backyard which had to be excavated due to a spider infestation, this magnifies the heebie jeebie factor somewhat.
Thanks in advance!
