Hi – can anyone identify this cockroach killing spider from Memphis, TN?
We think it’s probably a wolf spider from our google search.
We agree that this is a Wolf Spider. Wolf Spiders do not build a web to snare prey. They hunt without a web and they are often nocturnal, which makes them effective in controlling Cockroach populations. We hope your image will cause more of our readers to have a tolerance and appreciation of harmless Wolf Spiders.
