Pest Control Experts in Vancouver, BC
Every world-class city has a side to it that nobody really wants to talk about, and Vancouver is no exception. That’s because lurking in and around every building and business are the nasty denizens of the city that make people shudder in horror, squirm in fear, and which sends them running for the exits.
Those nasty city-dwellers are, of course, the unwanted critters and bugs that nobody ever seems to want around – the rats and mice, wasps and hornets, raccoons and squirrels. They make a mess, wreck buildings, and can even spread disease, but luckily for the people of Vancouver they have Westside Pest Control to call upon when Mother Nature’s little friends move into the neighbourhood.
As one of the great cities of the world, in addition to Burnaby and North Vancouver, Vancouver pretty much has everything a resident or visitor could want. There are beautiful neighbourhoods and great shopping, exquisite restaurants, lots of parks, plenty of nightlife, lots of businesses to keep the city humming along economically, cultural diversity to burn, and opportunities for every individual to settle in and be comfortable on their own terms.
With so much to do and see in Vancouver, and in the communities that surround it, it’s not surprising that Vancouver residents take so much pride in their city, and everything that it has going for it. Those residents and visitors aren’t terribly keen on sharing their upscale condos, flashy storefronts, industrial premises, and million-dollar bungalows with the huge variety of animal pests that love Vancouver just as much as their human nieghbors.
With so many opportunities for food and shelter, it’s no wonder so many types of creatures invade the homes and neighbourhoods of Vancouver. Whether it’s birds finding a place to nest in the eaves, raccoons or squirrels burrowing into your crawlspace or attic, termites and carpenter ants attacking the very fabric of your building, wasps being a general nuisance, or rats and mice running rampant through your walls, these creatures are going to find their way into your home eventually, and when they do, getting rid of them is probably going to be a pain in the butt.
Which is where Westside Pest Control comes in. As Vancouver’s premier pest control company, specializing in most of the common animal and insect pests that haunt the streets of our great city, Westside Pest Control is the go-to company for those who want those critters gone, gone, gone.
Since owner Mike Londry opened the company in 2009, Westside Pest Control has been tackling Vancouver’s pesky critters in order to keep homes and businesses pest free. We’re one of Greater Vancouver’s top pest control companies, and we specialize in a wide variety of local pests, including:
Generally, the animals people most dislike having invade their turf, mice, Norway rats and roof rats are the creatures people call about most often. Nobody wants them around their home or business, which is why Vancouver residents call the exterminator so quickly when these guys move in. We’ll be there to get rid of your rodent problem promptly and effectively because we have the right products, and because we know where to find them fast.
Pigeons, seagulls and sparrows, in particular, can cause a major mess on your property, and as a major seaport with significant parks, Vancouver has more than its share of all three. Think bird poop everywhere, but usually right where you want to enjoy your sundeck, or right above the door. We know you want them gone as soon as possible, and as Vancouver’s premier bird control experts, we can help. We use a variety of methods, but our emphasis is on exclusion, so the birds can’t roost or nest near your building.
Especially carpenter ants, odorous ants and sidewalk ants. These guys are hard to eradicate unless you know what you’re doing, so a good pest control expert is your best option for dealing with the various types of ants native to Vancouver. This is particularly true if those are carpenter ants chewing their way through your woodwork. Now, it’s not easy to get rid of ants because you’re usually dealing with tens of thousands of individuals living in multiple nests, but a lot of knowledge and the right commercial-grade products provide a solution, and Westside Pest Control has both for its Vancouver customers.
These creatures are the most destructive of the insects we tackle, and anyone who owns a wood-framed building shudders in horror at the mention of termites. If termites have invaded your home it’s a cinch you want them gone as soon as possible. Westside Pest Control is the best and fastest solution for these extremely destructive pests.
These little bandits might look cute and cuddly, but homeowners should be very wary about dealing with raccoons on their own; it’s a potentially dangerous situation that is best left in the hands of people who know what their doing. Let the raccoon control experts at Westside Pest Control take care of the problem quickly and safely. The damage raccoons can do not only to your home, but also your yard, is truly amazing, so give these creatures the respect they deserve and get our professionals out to take care of your raccoon problem. We always use humane methods to remove and keep raccoons out of your Vancouver home or business.
You don’t want to be tackling skunks on your own for obvious reasons, so let a professional skunk control expert take care of the problem humanely and quickly. Oh, and if you do happen to get sprayed, visit our web page about skunks for the antidote.
Sure squirrels are cute, and while most people want them gone because of their destructive behaviours, they don’t want to see them hurt. That’s why Westside Pest Control uses humane one-way doors and entry point exclusion for squirrels. We find that getting them out of the building and then closing up their access points is usually the most effective method for squirrel control. Squirrel control is mostly about closing up the access points, so we’ll do a complete inspection of your home and plug up those holes for you.
Wasp and Hornet Control
Nobody really wants yellow jacket wasps and bald-faced hornets ruining their picnics and barbecues, and both of these creatures can be a real pain… especially if they start stinging. They’re just not that welcome anywhere, but they’re not always easy to get rid of. Let Westside Pest Control handle your flying insect problems and we’ll show you why our company is considered the best pest control company in Greater Vancouver.
Oh, and if you have a nest of bees nest you want removed, give us a call and we’ll recommend some expert beekeepers who can do the job and save the bees. After all, bees are an important part of our environment, and we don’t want to be killing them if we don’t have to.
Pest Clean Ups
The reality of animal pests is that they aren’t usually detected until they’ve caused quite a lot of damage and/or left behind a significant mess to clean up by the time the pest problem has been eliminated. Therefore, clean up is almost always an issue, but you don’t have to worry about the clean up as Westside Pest control is more than happy to do the work for you.
Pest Entry Point Exclusion
There’s not much point in getting rid of the pest if you’re just going to let them back in. Part of every pest control job we do is ensuring potential entry points are blocked so you don’t have to worry as much that they’ll be back.
