Who can I contact to identify a spider?
Rate This FAQ
You can bring your spider specimen into the county Extension office and the Agent will be able to tell you if it is likely to be one of the three poisonous spiders that we have in Utah. He may need to forward the specimen to the University for verification if that is important to you. The verification cost is $5 per specimen.
The Extension Agent may be able to identify other spiders, however there are numerous species and he will not be able to identify all of them. Other sources of spider identification are entomology experts at your local colleges and the internet. Health Departments can often identify the poisonous species .

- We own a cabin in Oakley, Utah, and had a skunk underneath in July of last year. The odor has lingered but we think the skunk may have died or just left because the smell is going away. We want to prevent more from going underneath again. Is there a barrier type wire mesh that we can have installed or do it ourselves around the cabin?
