Our annual end-of-summer contest is here, come on down to the Dave's Garden County Fair!

Please identify this spider

Noblesville, IN

We moved into this house which is in the suburbs if Indianapolis and we see a lot of these spiders. They are big bigger than any spider I've ever seen. This is one that I just killed. Please help me. I need to spray around the house and inside against these guys.

Appears to be a wolf spider, but difficult to be certain because of its condition. At any rate, it is not a dangerous species, and you would be putting your household at a greater health risk from spraying that from anything the spiders would pose.

Just shoo the spiders into a paper cup with a dry paint brush or piece of paper and then turn them loose out in the garden. They are very helpful at keeping the bad guys under control.
