  • What is the pest control process?

    In Tucson, working with your local Western Exterminator pest control specialist all starts with either contacting us via our website or calling our local office at 800-937-8398.

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

    Our specialists will work with you to find the best time to provide the treatments and offer you assistance in preparing for their visit.

  • How often should I check my home for termites?

    If you have already noticed some signs in your home, such as flying termites, wood dust on the floor under timber, mud tubes or timber giving way on pressing or knocking the surface, then you should have a professional inspection immediately. Check our page on the signs of termite activity.

    Termites can cause significant damage in only 3 years but there may be no obvious signs to the untrained eye, therefore we recommend that you should have an inspection every 2-3 years. It is also important to have an expert identify the species of termite present and to get an assessment of the extent of the infestation and damage caused as soon as possible.

    Call us at 800-937-8398 or contact us online to arrange a termite survey.

  • How do I stop pests invading my home?

    Preventative pest control using our monitoring program is the best way to stop pests invading your property. Regular inspection of the interior and exterior areas will detect any pest activity and weak points around your property as early as possible. We can pick up the smallest issue and take action before it becomes a big and costly problem.

    Too often people wait until it’s too late. With Western Exterminator's team of specialists coming out for pest control management, you can take a proactive stance to prevent pest invasion.

Scorpion control Tucson, AZ

Scorpions aren’t just an issue in newly constructed homes surrounded by deserts. Even in populated areas, scorpions can find their way into your home or business. Scorpions can be difficult to remove from a property because they are hardy insects and can hide in tiny holes around your property.

Western Exterminator experts have the proper training and equipment to remove and prevent scorpion infestations. We’re trained to find scorpion hiding spots so we can get to the root of your issue. Our licensed entomologists train our pest specialists with the latest methods and techniques for scorpion control and prevention.

Cockroach control Tucson, AZ

Cockroaches can produce frustration for everyone from business owners to tenants to homeowners. The Copper State contains cockroach species such as German cockroaches and American cockroaches. Cockroaches often feed in unclean places and you do not want them in your Tucson property.

As a Tucson resident, you should look out for cockroach eggs, which are a signal that cockroaches could be present. German cockroaches can actually yield as many as six generations in a year, which is scary if you’ve got them in your property. Their case of eggs is yellowish brown.

Western Exterminator can remove cockroaches if you suspect they have infested your Tucson property. Get in touch with us today for an inspection to get started with the process.


Bees in Tucson, AZ

Honey bees are plentiful in Arizona and their activity takes place all year. Feral honey bees are an important stinging pest here. Most feral honey bees in Arizona are hybrids of European honey bees and Africanized honey bees (also called “killer” bees). Feral honey bees may be more dangerous than the European honey bees in the states up north.

You may also notice carpenter bees. Female carpenter bees in Arizona are black and big, whereas males are light orange. Carpenter bee infestation activity in structures here is lower than in the east and north of the U.S.

As much as you may want to get rid of pest bees, attempting to eliminate them through your own methods could end up hurting you. For bees, it is best to call a pest control specialist before taking action. Our specialists know the difference between bees and other stinging insects, and can recommend the best course of action, depending on the stinging insect near your home or business.

Wasp control in Tucson, AZ

Wasps can certainly be helpful in nature as predators of other insects, but they can also sting if you get close to, or bother, wasp nests. As you may have come to realize, wasp stings hurt. Arizona contains many types of paper wasps, such as the wasp Polistes flavus, which is mostly yellow.

Paper wasps are considered social wasps. They are ¾ to 1 ¼ inches in length. Paper wasp nests are typically not too large and can frequently be found in sheltered places such as under eaves. Paper wasps typically start constructing their nests from March to May in Arizona. Wasp nests can create issues if they are located where people are found. Male wasps are not able to sting, but females can.

As with bees, don’t use your own efforts to do away with wasps at a Tucson home or business - get in touch with a pest professional who has the training necessary to handle wasp problems. Get in touch with us today for an inspection to get started with the process.
