Why do I have a black widow spider problem?

We conduct a thorough assessment of your property to identify and address factors that may be attracting these pests. Our team also educates homeowners on habits and practices that can help reduce the likelihood of future infestations.

How can I prevent black widow spiders in the future?

Prevention is key in keeping your home spider-free. Natural ways to keep spiders away include reducing clutter, sealing entry points, and maintaining a clean environment. However, for lasting prevention, professional services are highly effective. Uinta Pest Solutions offers ongoing maintenance plans to protect your home from black widow spiders and other pests. To further assist in prevention, consider these tips:

  • Regularly remove clutter and debris from basements, garages, and storage areas.

  • Seal cracks and gaps in the exterior of your home.

  • Ensure window screens are intact and properly fitted.

  • Keep outdoor lighting to a minimum as it attracts insects, which in turn attract spiders.
