Pest Control Salt Lake City Utah

Pests need 3 things to live and reproduce: food, water and shelter. Unfortunately, sometimes they search for these needs in your home. Spiders and other insects can bite or sting, and may trigger allergies and asthma. They can also carry bacteria and contaminate food. Rodents can carry fleas, lice, and ticks into your home, bite children, contaminate food, and spread diseases such as Salmonella and Hantavirus.
