I'm moving back into a basement suite at the end of the month, which means *cue fanfare* spiders! Specifically wolf spiders. Will they pose a significant threat to my rats? Or will the rats eat them/kill them?

TIA!

Our big girl Fuzzy Rat free ranged outdoors and sometimes she went into places where I'd honestly not put my hand and she never got bitten by anything. But some big predatory spiders definitely can put a nasty bite on a human so I'd say they could hurt a rat... Especially a rat that isn't spider savvy. I think that they have glue traps for spiders now... which I suppose could also catch rats.

You might consider bug bombing the place if you have a while before you move in and the basement will have time to clear... just a thought.

One time a beetle walked by one of my rats, she immediately striked at it and bit its head off then tossed it aside. Your rats might do the same to a spider, but who knows?
