The average lifespan of a wolf spider is roughly one season, and it is exceedingly rare for one to survive for more than 18 months. Wolf spiders frequently become victims of cats, dogs and snakes, which contributes to their brief lives.
Because of their distinctive appearance, wolf spiders are one of the most commonly recognized spiders in the United States, as well as other parts of the world. Although their appearance can be alarming, wolf spiders are generally considered harmless to humans. Their bite is not fatal, although it may cause an allergic reaction in some cases.
