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.
Spiders are beneficial creatures, but they can be scary and sometimes dangerous.
Protect your home and business by ensuring spiders are under control.
You can relax in the comfort of knowing you are protected from spiders.
Although spiders play an important role in ecosystems and with insect control, no one wants to find a spider in their home. As spider exterminators in Utah, we utilize a thorough process to keep spiders from entering your home. The first step in Utah spider control is identifying conditions welcoming to spiders and entry points into your home. This helps us come up with a treatment plan, which involves web removal and applying a long–lasting residual product around your home that deters spiders from entering or even being around your home. You can also reduce spiders by reducing the presence of other insects — something else Thorn Pest Solutions can help you with.
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 aesthetics 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.
A woodlouse spider has a reddish cephalothorax (head) and a cream/grey colored abdomen. They have large fangs that are used for piercing isopods (potato bugs/rolly polies/pill bugs) which is their main food source.
Identify conducive conditions and possible entry points.
Make spiders move so they come in contact with applied materials.
Long lasting residual product will reduce spiders inside and outside the home.
Eliminating a spider’s food source will reduce the number of spiders as well.

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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
