At Tanner Pest Control we are constantly looking to add value to our customers through innovation and better servicing methods. To offer an effective Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program we involve all methods: exclusion (sealing openings), mechanical (placing traps), preventative control (residual pest control products) and performing a thorough inspection during each treatment. The exclusion treatment is key during the winter service (December 1st through February 28th ).

Did you know that September through April are the heaviest months when gophers, voles, mice, and rats are actively burrowing and trying to seek shelter (i.e. your home)? These particular pests don't hibernate in the winter like spiders do. They are a year round nuisance.
Below are some field mice that have had a bit too much bait to snack on this holiday season. As well as a freshly made gopher mound creeping up to eat the roots of a willow tree across the way. Fortunately our exclusion techniques on the exterior of homes and our mice/rat bait boxes make the winter season much more enjoyable by being rodent free!

The question often brought up: "Why do we need pest control in the winter?". The simple answer is, there is not one pest control product that lasts an entire year. The longest lasting products on the market last up to 90 days before it wears off. With that said, there are four main reasons why pest protection is vital during the winter months.
By doing the following four steps your home will be fully protected all year long. Having a winter treatment will ensure that you have a lighter pest load in the spring, summer, and fall.
Ever wonder what causes the little holes in your backyard? 9 times out of 10 they are holes from Voles (often confused with mice). Mice and rats have large ears, voles, on the other hand, have very small ears. Voles will burrow underground and create a tunnel system near grassy areas.
In the U.S. 23 species of Voles are currently present. Five are common in Utah- the Prairie, Meadow, Long Tailed, Water, and the Montane Vole. This small pest is generally less than 10 inches in length and can usually be distinguished by a brown or gray color. They can be found in areas where they feed, in large patches of grass or heavy foliage areas. Beside eating only vegetation and bark off of trees, they also eat snails and insects. Voles are both nocturnal and diurnal, meaning they live in both the day and night. If you see any holes around your home contact us immediately to get this pest taken care of.
Colder seasons create a migration of rodents venturing into new living areas. Homes are perfect conditions for Mice and Rats to invade because of the warmth and the food supply. The following are 11 strategies for preventing the amount of pest invasions into your home.
