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.

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.
This poisonous spider is very common in Salt Lake County homes. One way to identify a hobo spider is to see the "funnel shaped" webs they make around your house. They usually form webs in basements and main levels because they are not very good climbers. The male spider will often wonder into bathrooms and try to climb porcelain but they fall into sinks, showers, or toilets. Hobos prefer cracks and crevices to support the webs to catch their pray. Areas where hobos like to hide are:
Outside the home
rock retaining walls
hard soil with cracks
Inside dwelling areas include:
storage room items
