Pest control inspection services in Salt Lake City

1. Inspection & Assessment

Every service starts with an inspection to identify pest activity and pest vulnerable areas. Every home is different and requires a specific strategy to get the best results. During the inspection a Thorn expert will identify active infestations, pest entry points, areas where pests are most likely to occur, and make an assessment as what treatments are necessary to get the best results. We don’t simply “spray” the baseboards.

2. Spider Web and Wasp Nest Removal

Removing spiders webs helps in control  by getting spiders moving so they run into our materials. Removing wasp nests is an important part of their control. We try and remove all webs and nests on the 1st and 2nd story of homes up to about 18 ft.

5. Apply Long Lasting Dusts

We don’t just “spray” for pests. We utilize the best materials for long term results. We apply long lasting dusts into exterior cracks and crevices where pests may hide or try to enter the home. These dusts often are effective for over year. When pests try to enter, we will be ready for them.

6. Treat Pest Conducive Conditions

To prevent interior pests, Thorn professionals look for and identify potential pest conducive conditions in your yard as well. We treat these areas when necessary to reduce pest pressure in and around your home. This leads to better results than simply focusing on the foundation.

Science-based Superior Solutions

We are scientists. We know pests and how to control them. We are not a one size fits all company where we use the same product all day long at every home. Every home is different and requires different strategies, techniques, and materials to get the best result. 

Complete Inspection

We inspect your home for pest issues and potential issues. Identifying pest vulnerable areas means we can focus on those areas and get better results. Pest control requires keen observations from trained experts. Pest control is much more that simply “spraying” the baseboards. “Spraying” the baseboards will offer poor results. 

What is the most common method of pest control?

A good pest control program uses multiple control methods. The most common solution for controlling pests native to Utah involves applying liquid pesticides as a barrier at likely pest entry points. The experts at Thorn also use many other tools to control pests including baits, dusts, exclusion, sanitation, habitat modification, vacuuming, web removal, and trapping. 

Contact us today for a consultation with one of our pest control experts. We can recommend the best pest control strategy for you after we inspect your property.

Can I do pest control myself?

Homeowners can attempt pest control with certain treatments, but we don’t recommend it. A thorough audit and consultation with a pest control expert is beneficial when you need to identify a bigger issue and create a proactive plan to manage and treat the problem. 

 

There are a variety of pest control solutions available to residents, but when dealing with pests and pesticides, it’s best to leave it to the trained professionals.
