How I keep mine
I keep my Wolf spiders in plastic boxes with peat or coir on the base and pieces of bark or half a flower pot to hide under. I place my boxes on a shelf with a heat mat on it, I use a strip heat mat (15cm wide) and this covers part of the base of the box (several boxes can fit on one long mat). Like most bugs it is a good idea to give them a dry and a damp area to choose from. I find the area above the heat mat is dry and the area not covered by the heat mat is a little more moist. I use plastic boxes for my spiders as I have lots of them and don't have the space to keep them all in individual tanks but of course they do equally well when housed in a plastic or glass tank and are much more visible. The Wolf spiders like to actively hunt their prey and will chase around their enclosure after a cricket or cockroach. They are fascinating to watch and easy to keep. I feed them once a week, they are not fussy eaters, the adults will take anything from crickets and cockroaches to maggots and mealworms.
