Spider Control

Spider Control & Removal Services in Utah

Spiders are beneficial creatures but they can also be scary to many people. Research shows that most humans are born naturally afraid of spiders. This fear makes many people very uncomfortable having spiders in their home or workplace. Some people are so frightened that they are unable to function when a spider is present. We are here to help make your home or workplace a safe and comfortable space.

Spider Control Process:

Spider control always starts with a detailed inspection. We need to identify conducive conditions to spiders as well as possible entry points.

Removing webs not only helps the esthetics of the structure, but also gets spiders moving so that they come in contact with the applied materials.

By applying a long lasting residual product around the structure we can drastically reduce the number of spiders in and right around the home. Special attention must be made in corners, around entry points like doors and windows, heavy vegetation, and  areas that are attractive to other pests including flying insects. Thorn professionals apply the best materials in the right locations.

Part of spider control is identifying and eliminating their food sources (other pests). By reducing insects in the area, we reduce the amount of food for spiders and the area is not nearly as attractive to spiders.

Cellar Spider

Cellar spiders have long delicate legs with small, elongated bodies. They are not a health hazard. They feed on insects and other spiders and are common in basements, crawl spaces, under furniture, and in and around other rarely-moved objects.

How do I get rid of a spider infestation?

There are various steps involved with treating a spider infestation, but treatment always starts with a detailed inspection. The Thorn team will review the exterior of the building and identify areas that are conducive to fostering spiders, and search for entry points if spiders are making their way inside a building. 

We will make recommendations for both spider removal and spider control to mitigate the infestation. While there are spider sprays available on the market, the most common treatments we recommend involve removing webs, reducing the food supply by controlling the presence of insects that spiders eat, and sealing entry points.

How much does pest control cost for spiders?

Pricing can vary based on the type of infestation you have, and whether it’s necessary to provide ongoing treatment. It costs $129 for a single spider control service from Thorn, and we offer additional programs starting from $32 per month.

What keeps spiders out of your house?

The best way to keep spiders out of your home is to improve exclusion (sealing up the home). You can also prevent spiders from coming indoors if you discourage them from coming near the house. Clear piles of clutter from around the exterior of the home or building, and remove webs as they’re formed. 

Whether it’s a black widow spider, hobo spider, or even a common spider, we understand how troubling it can be to have spiders in your home or business, and we can help.

How common are spiders in Utah?

Spiders are extremely common in Utah. It is estimated that up to 1 million spiders can live on an acre of land! Luckily most of these spiders are not pests and help with insect control. There are a few species of spider here in Utah that are more prone to invade homes and become a pest. These include black widow spiders, wolf spiders, house spiders, woodlouse spiders, hobo spiders, cellar spiders, and yellow sac spiders.

What attracts spiders to my home?

Spiders are super successful and can be found almost everywhere. That being said, there are things that attract spiders like a plentiful supply of other insects, clutter, exterior lighting that attracts flying insects, and think vegetation.

Common types of spiders found in Utah:

  • Black widow spiders
  • Wolf spiders
  • Yellow sac spiders
  • Woodlouse spiders
  • Jumping spiders
  • Orb weaving spiders
  • Hobo spiders
  • Grass spiders
  • House spiders
  • Cellar Spiders
  • Hacklemash weaver spiders
  • Ground spiders

Signs you need a spider control professional:

Everyone has a different tolerance and comfort level with spiders. The fear of spiders or arachnophobia is one of the top 10 phobias that humans have. So with that being said, you should call a professional when your tolerance or threshold for spiders has been exceeded. For some people this will be one spider and for others this won’t be until seeing a spider becomes a regular occurrence. Businesses should also consider the variety of tolerances of their guests or patrons. Spiders make many people very uncomfortable and may cause a client to have a bad experience. Spiders in the work place also may not be tolerated.
