  • How do I get rid of bed bugs?

    Bed bugs are one of the most common pest problems in Spokane. People pick them up on their travels when the tiny insects crawl into clothing or luggage from an infested room and hitch a lift.

    They are then carried into other hotels, apartments and homes where they crawl around at night to seek blood meals and places to shelter and breed.

    For businesses, it is essential to have a monitoring program to detect bed bugs as early as possible before an infestation spreads. New bed bugs can be brought in to your property at any time and they can quickly spread around the building.

    Once you detect an infestation it is important to thoroughly survey your property to establish its extent. There are many places where bed bugs can hide. Our specialists are highly trained to survey a property and determine the best available treatments.

    There are a number of treatments available to eradicate all the life stages of bed bugs, including non-chemical and chemical treatments. Check out our bed bug pages for more advice on detection and treatments to eliminate bedbugs.

    If you need help now, call us at (509) 566-3117 to speak to one of our pest control professionals or contact us online.


  • How do I get rid of ants?

    Odorous house ants, pavement ants and carpenter ants can be problematic in the Pacific Northwest. Wiping your kitchen counters each night can help get rid of odorous house ants. Sugar ants thrive in the humid climate and are attracted, as their name suggests, by sweet food.

    Ensure no food is on the floor and food is stored in secure containers. As with rodents, it’s best to keep vegetation two feet away from the property’s perimeter. Many ants feed on a substance called honeydew produced by aphids feeding on vegetation. Also, close up gaps and holes at your property where ants can enter. Find more tips on our page on how to get rid of ants.

    Call us at (509) 566-3117 or contact us online to book a free inspection and get recommendations on how to get rid of ants on your property.


  • How often should I check my home for termites?

    Termites can cause significant damage in only 3 years, therefore, we recommend that you should have an inspection every 2–3 years. However, if you already notice some signs of termite activity in your home, such as damaged timber, mud tubes or flying termites, then you should have a professional inspection immediately.

    Subterranean termites can stay hidden in the ground growing for years until the colony sends out workers to find new food sources nearby. They build exploratory mud tubes to nearby sources of wood, which can be timber on your property.

    Dampwood termites swarm to find new timber to infest and the kings and queens build their colonies wholly inside the timber.

    Termite activity can be damaging your property for years before signs become visible. So it is important to identify the species of termite and get an assessment of the extent of the infestation and damage already caused.

    Call us at (509) 566-3117 or contact us online to arrange a termite survey.

Termite control in Spokane, WA

There are two types of termites in Spokane, WA. There are the subterranean termites that leave mud tubes on walls connecting their nests to your timber and need sources of moisture to survive. They can live and thrive for years, underground near or under your house, hidden until they need a bigger food source. Then they send out the workers to find food nearby and start to consume and damage the wood in your home.

There are also drywood termites that do not leave the telltale signs of the subterranean termites. They feed and nest entirely inside a piece of timber and can do damage for years before being discovered.

If you have found spongy floors, found discarded wings, seen the sawdust-like droppings, found that doors no longer close properly or any of the other signs of a termite infestation call your local experts in termite control.

If you think that you have a termite problem, call us to arrange an appointment with one of our termite specialists. Call us at (509) 566-3117 or contact us online now.
