What is special is the following myths are circulating about them: they are aggressive, they are house spiders, and their bite will cause necrotic (cell injury=dead skin) lesions. What is special about the Hobo Spider is that it has taught us the importance of thinking scientifically -- the importance of being a skeptic. :)
I do not think its bite can kill. We sometimes see them in our garage in the summer. They do like to live in clutter because they can hide. Other than that I do not know any thing on Hobos except they are creepy.
It looks like a wolf or water spider to me.
it is Poisonous and migrated from europe all the to seattle
Maybe it hitches a ride on things?
What is special about the Hobo spiders is that when they bite It is painful and can cause death. I'm glad they don't live around were I live.
I don't think we have them here either. ill ave to look it up on the internet.
