Reports by customers using a Sephora Brand lotion claim the scent of the lotion attracts Wolf Spiders.
A customer claims that an ingredient in the Sol de Janeiro Delícia Drench™ Body Butter for Intense Moisture and Skin Barrier Repair attracts Wolf Spiders.
Leaving a one star review, a customer wrote,
“If you're scared of wolf spiders- watch out for these lotions lol. I wanted to love them sooo bad, but one of the ingredients is like kryptonite to wolf spiders! When I put it on instantly one will come out. Normally I'II see one every like 3 years, used this and it was every day.”
They then spoke about how persistent the spider was when it came to the scent,
“I stopped using it and haven't seen one since.... oh and one time, the spider wanted to eat whatever ingredient it is so bad that it chased me. I swear on everything. I'd run left, it ran left, I ran right, it ran right. Like it was legit following the scent. And no, the scent isn't that good, nothing a $5 vanilla cream can't match. So yeah, do be careful if you're frightened of spiders, especially the big wolf ones.”
Encouraging the safety of the spiders, the user wrote,
“Also, plz don't hurt them if you do wear this & they appear. Use a cup and put them outside. Sorry for a disappointing review.”
Wolf Spiders are not aggressive Spiders, and they tend to avoid humans as much as possible, but they will bite as long as they feel threatened.
Wolf Spider bites are not poisonous, but people can be allergic to them if bitten.
Wolf Spiders are not often found in households, yet it is possible to find them hiding behind doors or inside of plant containers. In most cases, Wolf Spiders wander into homes seeking shelter, or by accident.
