Wolf Spiders

The burrows below were found in Humboldt County, northern California. Wolf spiders in this area are common and their burrows can be found in mixed forest environments. The ones below were found in Douglas fir/tanoak/redwood forest environments.

Wolf spider burrows can be wide, like this one, or narrow at the opening. This was a good-sized burrow.

This ball of silk was found at the entrance to this wolf spider burrow. I don't know if this functions as a sort of door, or if it was removed from the burrow by the spider. It's purpose is a mystery, so far.
