Vineyard was once a small town known as the site for the Geneva Steel Mill. Now, it is a flourishing residential city with no sign of slowing down. After the industrial mill closed in the early 2000s, the land started being reappropriated to build homes, townhomes, and apartment complexes.
Since then, Vineyard has grown exponentially and become Utah County’s fastest-growing city. After only having 100 or so residents in 2010, the city now has a population of over 10,000.
What keeps drawing more and more people to Vineyard? For starters, it offers brand new homes close to the larger cities of Orem and Provo with everything one might need. It also is just under an hour away from Salt Lake City’s amenities including an international airport. All the while, residents can live just far enough away from the busyness of these larger cities in a close-knit community.
Vineyard has also been recognized for its vast array of bike trails. Young families and professionals are flocking to the area to enjoy these trails, the city’s many parks, and a close proximity to Utah Lake. By bordering the large lake, Vineyard gives residents quick access to paddleboarding, boating, and other water sports. Truly, the city of Vineyard is the perfect place for these residential communities to be popping up.
However, all this quick growth and new developments displace pests who now seek shelter in Vineyard homes. Even (and sometimes especially) homes that have just recently been built are at risk for large pest problems if no pest protection was put in place upon beginning construction.
Being close to Utah Lake, undeveloped land, and forested trails do not help either. Many species of pests thrive in such areas where they can hide for cover and find food and water.

Living in a city that borders Utah Lake has its perks, but it also has its abundance of water-loving pests. Mosquitoes are just one species that congregate around the perimeter of the lake. While Vineyard homeowners and renters get quick access to all the lake has to offer, they also have to struggle with mosquitoes in their yards, especially during rainy seasons.
With so much of Vineyard, UT still under new development, ants with thriving colonies sometimes take up residence in new lots. They are attracted to damp wood like the wood framing of new homes after a storm. When they aren’t tunneling through framed houses, they may hide in wooded areas like those along Vineyard’s bike trails.
Wasps are also a danger to new home developments. Without pest control in place while under construction, wasps sometimes swoop into new homes and build nests in unfinished attics, under eaves, and other hard-to-find spots. Even homes that were constructed several years back could be at risk of wasps returning to a site following the scent of a nest’s former location.
