Thank You

First we would like to thank our wonderful clients, partners, suppliers for being so understanding and accommodating  as we navigate these uncertain times. And to our commercial clients who have their doors closed, stay strong we will get through this together.

The health and well-being of our clients and employees is always our priority, and this is no exception. We really appreciate our clients being maintaining social distancing during our visits to their homes and businesses

We’re all in this together and we’re doing our part to contribute.

We’re Here To Help 

Pest control is an essential service and we feel it is our duty to continue to provide pest related services across Metro Vancouver. During these times, pests are still a risk to the health and wellbeing of staff and customers, so it’s important both homeowners and businesses continue to get the vital protection they need.

While businesses may stop, it doesn’t mean that pests will! Ants, rodents, and birds can still cause issues…… there are many viruses carried by rodents, birds and other pests equally or more deadly than COVID 19. We are happy to continue to provide effective control methods in the safest way possible.

We’re here and ready to help with whatever pest-related requests you have.

How We Are Adapting Our Services

We have adapted many of our services so that entering your home or business is temporarily or no longer required.

Firstly, our technicians have been donning protective equipment for every client call we attend to help uphold safety. Our PPE includes disposable booties, gloves, respirators or masks. We are staying a minimum of 10 ft. from customers and avoiding contact with any of their possessions.

Secondly, we have incorporated DIY methods into our professional services - our technicians can deliver to your door and from a distance explain how to safely install and apply products.

Thirdly, due to customer requests, we have initiated a new disinfectant clean-up service to help stop the spread of germs at facilities such as restaurants, schools, banks, shopping malls etc. Our team of licensed technicians are proficient spray applicators, thoroughly trained in best practices for health and hygiene.
