Looks like your typical Wolf spider. They tend to be large and nasty looking, but they're fairly harmless.

Looks massive... Its eyes are big enough to cause red-eye in the camera flash! I'd lasso that thing and take it outside. I get a big gallon of bug spray and soak the perimeter of my house foundation on the outside in the beginning of spring and again like Aug/Sept. Usually only see an occasional ant in my house.



[i]Wolf Spiders in Columbus Ohio are “Out of Control”

This Fall and Winter, Pest Control Companies not only in Columbus, but throughout the United States, have noticed an increase in the amount of calls from people complaining about Wolf Spiders in and around their homes. These tan to brown to black spiders seem to be everywhere, and it’s important to know what to do to help keep many of them from entering your home.
