Orem Spider Removal
There are many spider species that call the Orem area home, including black
widows, wolf spiders, and house spiders. Black widow bites can be painful
and even dangerous for at-risk populations like children, the elderly,
and those with health complications. While spiders do serve a valuable
purpose in our ecosystem, that doesn’t mean you want them in your home.
Spiders are drawn to houses that can provide:
Shelter: Spiders escape extreme weather conditions by hiding away in dark corners,
basements, crawlspaces, and attics.
Mates: During mating season, males will enter your home in search of mates.
Food: Other pests are spiders’ main source of food, so they will come
into a home if they know there are plenty of other pests there

Easily recognizable by the red hourglass shape on their bellies,
black widows are a feared spider among many. While their bites don’t often cause
death, their venom is 15 times stronger than that of a rattlesnake, making
them quite dangerous. Symptoms of a black widow bite include nausea, paralysis
of the diaphragm, and muscle aches.
Black widows survive off other pests and insects such as:
Black widows prefer to hide away in dark, dry, man-made structures such
as barns, decks, outhouses, sheds, woodpiles, and more. Inside a home,
they are commonly found in dimly lit crawl spaces, garages, and basements.
The Hobo spider hitched rides with humans along Pacific Northwest highways
to distribute itself in 6 American states. Hobo spiders are aggressive
house spiders that are quite difficult to identify due to the similarities
they share with other spiders. They love to hide in dark, moist spaces—such
as basements and crawl spaces—and are often found in holes, cracks,
and crevices. Hobo spiders are not great at climbing, so you will almost
always find them underground.
In order to prevent hobo spiders in your home:
- Seal common entry points such as cracks along the foundation
- Replace all window screens that have holes
- Clear away clutter from basement or garage
- Avoid storing shoes on the floor
- Keep basement dry
Termite Control in Orem, UT
Causing billions of dollars’ worth of damage every year,
termites are known as the “silent killers.” They hide away in your
home, eating away at its structure for extended periods of time. Sometimes
months, or even years, go by before you ever even know they’re there.
Signs of a subterranean termite infestation include:
- Mud tunnels that extend from the ground to the infested wood
- Winged termites swarming from mud tunnels or around light fixtures, windows,
doors, and vents
- Wood damage in the form of blisters and dark areas
In Utah, subterranean termites are a major threat. They cause extensive
structural damage to homes and businesses. In addition to structures,
they consume books, other paper products, and other plant-based goods.
Wasp Removal in Orem
During late summer and early fall,
wasps come out in full force as they search for food to sustain themselves through
winter. While they typically do not sting unless they are provoked, having
a wasp colony near your home can be incredibly unsafe for you and your
family, particularly for those who are allergic to wasps. Unlike bees,
wasps can sting over and over again thanks to their smooth stingers.
To keep wasps away, you should:
- Avoid leaving meat or sweet drinks sitting outside
- Keep your trashcans sealed up
- Keep your doors and windows shut
- Don’t leave trash lying around
- Cover or fill any holes in the ground
If you discover a wasp nest on your property, it is best to reach out to
a professional pest control team right away.
Orem Pocket Gopher Removal
Known for building complex underground tunnels,
gophers damage lawns, destroy gardens, and kill trees in yards. These
rodents can grow to be up to 10 inches long and prefer to live alone. They are
easily identified by their brown fur, small ears, long teeth, small eyes,
and short tails. As vegetarians, these pests survive off of shrubs, plants,
roots, trees, and grass, making them a gardener’s worst nightmare.
To prevent these pests from making their way onto your property and destroying
your yard, you can:
- Bury mesh wire fencing underground
- Lay down a barrier of gravel around the perimeter of your yard
- Plant your shrubs, veggies, and other plants in raised garden boxes
