Hobo Spider Enemies

Although the hobo spider is known as a formidable predator, it is also a food source for other predators. Many different animals may prey upon hobo spiders as they do on other spiders. Possible predators can include centipedes, birds, rodents and even ants.

Mud-dauber wasps also may hunt for hobo spiders. Mud-dauber wasps could catch hobo spiders and bring them back to their nests to feed to their young.

Other spider species act as competitors and enemies to hobo spiders, as well. Hobo spiders may become ensnared in other webs and can be consumed by rival spiders. Spiders that compete with and prey upon hobo spiders include wolf spiders.
