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.
We really didn't want to upload a picture of this sick arachnid. However, it might be useful to see the appearance looks much like the hobo spider. The Wolf Spider gets its name because they have the same instincts as wolfs. They hunt, stalk, ambush and pounce on their prey. Other spiders like the black widow, hobo, and orb weaver catch their prey in webs.
During the fall months they are found carrying the egg sacs on their backs. You might want to think twice about smashing them because if you do the baby spiders will run all over and spread like a wild fire. The good news, they are not poisonous to humans.
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.
The Yellow Sac Spider can be identified as having a bright green or yellow body with dark feet. This nocturnal nusence spends most of its life indoors (corners, basements, attics) and outdoors (grass, trees, bushes or shrubs). During the daytime they rest in small cocoons that are found in attics, ceilings, or basements. They can build these nesting areas in as little as 10-15 minutes.
Yellow Sac Spiders are surprisingly more aggressive than most Utah arachnids. They are responsible for most of the spider bites that are found when waking up in the morning. The bite is know as Cytotoxic, meaning it causes skin death in small areas where the bite takes place. It can be compared to Hobo or Brown Recluse spider, just not as toxic. The bite will cause a small red bump on the skin.
The months of April-October are the heavy outdoor season and they migrate inside the home the remaining months of the year.
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.
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
