Frequently asked questions


  • What is the pest control process?

    In Boise, working with your local Western Exterminator pest control specialist all starts with either contacting us via our website or calling our local office.

    Our specialists will schedule a time to provide a free property inspection. We will provide you with the results of that inspection, discuss the pest issues we find and what the recommended treatments are.

    You can then schedule a time for those treatments and any follow-up treatments at that time or at a date of your choosing. The specialists will work with you to find the best time to provide the treatments and offer you assistance in preparing for their visit.

    Start the process by calling us at (208) 888-4535 or contact us online to arrange your free inspection.


  • What is the best way to prevent pest infestations?

    The best way to prevent a pest infestation is to make your home as unappealing to pests as you can. Pests need food, shelter and moisture, so preventing them from getting these in your property is a good first step. Maintaining your property so that there are no routes of access is also important. Check out our pest pages for advice on detecting and preventing pests, such as rodents, termites and ants.

    However, knowing what pests might find attractive about your property and where the weak points are can be a challenge. This may need professional help. The best way to find out how to stop pests is to contact your local Western Exterminator office and discuss pest prevention methods. Ultimately, signing up for a pest prevention program can save you money in the long run.

    Check out our Pestfree365 service to keep your home free from over 36 of the most common household pests all year long.


  • How do I get rid of rats?

    Rats need to be close to sources of food to survive, so removing food sources for these pests and preventing access to food will help get rid of them. For example, close your garbage cans and pick up garbage that is on the ground.

    Rats are clever and agile which gives them a good ability to find any weak spot in a building to find shelter and food. A thorough building inspection is an important step to look for weak points. Seal holes in your property, even if they are very small as rats can get through a quarter-sized hole. Ensure vegetation (including trees) is not too close to your property as it can give shelter to pests and a route into your building if it is growing on or touching a wall, roof or cables.

    There are several types of device and treatments available for eliminating a population of rats, including:

    • Traps
    • Bait stations
    • Fumigation

    We can provide a free inspection of your property to assess the extent of a rat infestation and the potential entry points and recommend tailored treatments to eliminate the rats.

    Call us at (208) 888-4535 or contact us online to arrange a free inspection.

Wildlife control

Various species of wildlife live close to urban areas and see gardens, homes and other buildings as attractive places to shelter. They can damage lawns and gardens or get inside attics, basements and other parts of buildings where they can cause damage.

Bed bug heat treatment

Western Exterminator's Entotherm heat treatment is a chemical-free method of eliminating bed bugs and other pests in whole rooms or for items that can be placed into a heating pod.

The heat treatment kills all lifecycle stages of the insect pests, from egg to adult, with a single treatment. The computer-controlled heat cycle reaches deep into infested materials to kill insects where traditional chemicals would not penetrate.

There is minimal disruption for the customer. The equipment is easy to set up on site, enabling quicker treatment, and the room or items are ready to use again as soon as the heat dissipates and the temperature returns to normal.

Contact us by calling at (208) 888-4535 or by submitting an online form to arrange an appointment or find out more about our Entotherm bed bug heat treatment.

Boise ant control

You’ve most likely seen an ant inside your property at some point. Around Boise, ants are a common issue, but they can be more than just an annoyance. For example, carpenter ants create nests in wood, which could eventually result in structural damage. Ants can also make a residential property appear unsanitary and harm the customer experience at your commercial property.

DIY methods of controlling ants are not always reliable, so you should really get in touch with an ant control professional with a solid understanding of ant species and their habits.

Western Exterminator specialists will provide effective treatments to get rid of your ants and give recommendations for how to prevent future infestations.

Get in touch with us today to resolve your ant problem.

Fumigation services

Fumigation is an effective way to get rid of a wide variety of pests in buildings, including bed bugs, termites, stored product pests and more. Our licensed fumigators are very experienced professionals that have decades of experience in the industry. Whether you're looking to fumigate your home or business, we will take extra care to do the job right.

Our fumigation services include:

  • Full or partial building fumigation
  • Commodities, including railroad cars
  • Household goods
  • Fumigation for export requirements

An infestation of drywood termites may need a whole-building fumigation to effectively remove every individual termite in every colony. For the treatment to be effective the fumigation gas needs to penetrate all the timber and wooden items in the property.

Find out more about our termite fumigation service and the processes involved.
