Our Company

Local Pest Control

Our company started from personal experience with bed bugs and many years working for large nationally owned pest control companies. One of the owners of Local Pest Control owned an apartment building that became infested with bed bugs. After many unsuccessful attempts and many months in trying to get rid of them with other pest control companies, he trained himself and eradicated them from his building. He has slept with bed bugs and has been bitten numerous times. This experience has given him an inside knowledge that very few other pest controllers will ever have.

The other owner, and head technician of Local Pest Control has worked for many years with National pest control companies and is trained in all areas of pest control. From ants to raccoons, he has seen and done it all. He keeps up with the latest training materials and attends national and international conferences to keep abreast of new developments in the pest control field.

From personal experience and training we know what its like to have unwanted guests in our homes. Trust us to fix the problem: quickly, cost effectively and permanently!

We are:

  • 100% Locally owned and operated
  • Insured, Government Licensed and Bonded
  • Approved Member of the Structural Pest Management Association of BC
