The Hobo Spider (Tegenaria agrestis)
Member of the Funnel web weavers, and characterized by their ability to move rapidly, and by their layered, flat web, which has a funnel-like lair at the rear in which the spider resides and waits for prey. The web is not sticky like that of many spiders, but rather is a trip web, which traps insect prey that is unable to navigate on the surface. These spiders have a venomous bite. The most common reported symptom is a severe headache, other symptoms can include nausea, weakness, fatigue, temporary memory loss, and vision impairment. Commonly found around the foundations of houses, and beneath rocks, wood, and ornaments in yards. Adult hobo spiders are moderately large (12-18 mm body length) brown spider, with long, unmarked legs (legs included, a typical specimen would fit nicely on a silver dollar).

Brown Recluses (Loxosceles)
Are well known for their violin marking, and get their name from its color and habits. They often hide in dark, secluded places like under porches or deep in closets, and thrive in man-made areas. They also may be found under trash cans, tires, or any dark areas where prey is common to enter. They are primarily nocturnal, lay their eggs from May to July, and have a venomous bite. Reactions to a brown recluse bite vary depending on the amount of venom injected and the individual’s sensitivity levels. Some people may experience a delayed reaction, others an immediate reaction, and others no reaction at all.

Little Black Ants
are extremely small and shiny black in color. Workers are about 1/16th inch in length and the queens are about 1/8th inch in length. Indoors, they are usually first seen in the kitchen, bathroom or laundry room but can spread to other areas very rapidly. Little black ants will form multiple colonies with multiple queens. Eggs laid by a queen can take just 10 days to hatch. This can make little black ants more difficult to get rid of than other species.

will set up quarters on the ground, in cracks in concrete walls, in spaces between boards and timbers, even among belongings in human dwellings. The worker ants are about 1/10 inch long and can easily squeeze through the tiniest cracks and holes. Queens are two to four times the length of workers. In natural areas, they generally nest shallowly in loose leaf litter or beneath small stones, due to their poor ability to dig deeper nests. However, if a deeper nesting ant species abandons their nest, Argentine ant colonies will readily take over space.

First, we trap, then exclude entry points, and can set up bait stations around the foundation of the home to keep rats and mice from entering.
Mice are remarkably well adapted for living year round in homes. Homeowners are especially likely to notice mice during winter, following their fall migration indoors in search of warmth, food, and shelter. Once mice become established inside a home, they can be extremely difficult to control. Mice are prolific breeders, producing 6-10 litters continuously throughout the year. Common mice to Utah are The House Mouse and The Deer Mouse. Their droppings, urine, bite and scratch can carry several transmitted diseases such as Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome, Hemorrhagic Fever with Renal Syndrome, Leptospirosis, Lymphocytic Chorio-meningitis (LCM), Rat-Bite Fever, Salmonellosis. Mice can enter your home several ways, contact Quality Care Pest Control for a free inspection in Park City and Summit County Utah.
Voles are herbivores, they feed on the roots of vegetation mainly grass. They do extensive damage to lawns and yards, Voles make “runways” or “highways” by feeding and running over the same area shaping the grass into a tunnel to defend themselves from predators. They burrow multiple entry points to their dens and in winter make small nests out of dead grass underneath the snow. Voles do not hibernate and do most of their damage in the winter when the voles are protected from predators by the snow. Voles pregnancy stage last 24 days, with litters from 4 to 11 and can start breeding at the 10 days old. You can see how a small infestation can turn into an epidemic over a short period of time. Baits are the only way to control a vole population from starting or stopping an infestation. I use an anticoagulant bait, it is still poison but there is a vaccine that can be administered at any veterinarian or hospital to reverse the effects if any non-target animal or person manages to get to the bait. The bait is placed in tamper-proof stations designed only for rodents to access the bait inside. The bait is secured inside the bait station so it will not fall out and staked down to the ground with a ten-inch stake. Voles look very similar to Mice but have completely different characteristics, Voles have a very small tail and a blunt face with small claws for digging.

Bed Bugs (Cimex lectularius)
are small, oval, brownish insects that feed on the blood of animals or humans. Adult bedbugs have flat bodies about the size of an apple seed. After feeding, however, their bodies swell and are a reddish color. They move quickly over floors, walls, and ceilings. Female bedbugs may lay hundreds of eggs, each of which is about the size of a speck of dust, over a lifetime. Immature bedbugs, called nymphs, shed their skins five times before reaching maturity and require a meal of blood before each shedding. Under favorable conditions, the bugs can develop fully in as little as a month and produce three or more generations per year. Bedbugs may enter your home undetected through luggage, clothing, used beds and couches, and other items. Their flattened bodies make it possible for them to fit into tiny spaces, about the width of a credit card. Bedbugs do not have nests like ants or bees but tend to live in groups in hiding places. Their hiding places include mattresses, box springs, bed frames, and headboards where they have easy access to people to feed. Bed Bugs can not be treated by anyone and are considered the most difficult pest to control and eliminate. Contact Quality Care Pest Control to get the job done right the first time.
