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 ).

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.
Utah has three dangerous spiders, The Hobo, Black Widow and Yellow Sac Spider. The following bio is provided by www.hobospider.org by Darwin K. Vest from Eagle Rock Research.The following covers the identification, habitat and the bites of these spiders.
This wasp is classified as the Mud Dauber Wasp. The only benefit of having these plastered on your home, is to keep away the Black Widow Spider (their prey). The females build nests out of mud, which hardens over time. In this nest, they lay a single egg. They catch a Black Widow Spider by stinging it with their venom. This doesn't kill the spider, but rather paralyzes it. They bring the disabled spider back into their mud lair and lay the egg on or beside the spider. This wasp will then seal the hole, burying the spider inside to be used for food when their offspring hatches. Once they seal the hole, they fly away to build another nest, continuing the cycle.
The Utah Plant and Pest Diagnostic Lab surveyed of most frequent identified Arachnids from 1978 to 2010. Here are the results of the findings:

The female spider can lay up to 3,000 spider eggs in one sac. The sac maintains a fairly consistant humidity level to keep the eggs from freezing during extreme winter temperatures. After the female spider lays the eggs, she usually will die afterwards due to the effects of the laying.
Areas where spider egg sacs are most common is in the eaves or in any wood or brick corners. This is where there is a comfortable crevice to safely harness the sac from weather conditions.
The Black Widow spider is approximately (1 1/2 inches) in diameter, including legs. Black Widow spiders are common around wood piles, and are frequently encountered when homeowners carry firewood into the house. They are found under eaves, in boxes, outdoor toilets, meter boxes and other undisturbed places. The female Black Widow occasionally eats the male after mating (hence the name). She hangs belly-upward and rarely leaves the web. The black widow is not aggressive, but it will bite instinctively if you touch it. Black Widow bites are sharp and painful, if you are bit seek medical attention immediately.
