Coquitlam’s Pest Control Expert

Solutions Pest Control has been solving Coquitlam’s pest control issues for over 15 years.

City of Coquitlam

Located 30 kilometres east of Vancouver, Coquitlam is the geographical centre of Metro Vancouver and home to tremendous natural beauty. This fast-growing area boasts a community with a diverse cultural heritage. Although far-off Quebec is generally what comes to mind first when mentioning French in Canada, one of Canada’s earliest French-Canadian settlements is the village of Maillardville.

Common Coquitlam Pests

As an area where city life meets wildlife, Coquitlam has its share of pests that may require pest control services to remove. Ants, cockroaches, and rodents are all common, as are wasps and fleas. The cooling months of fall bring more of these pests into the home in search of food and shelter. Removing these pests can be tricky, necessitating the help of experienced professionals.

Bed bugs will gather near to where their host sleeps. The top spots to check are:

  • Bottom of box spring

Some places to check include bedside tables, ceiling and wall junctions, and loose panelling. They may appear in any crease or crevice near sleeping areas such as mattress seams and baseboards.

Bed bugs can be hard to find for those who aren’t sure what they should be looking for. Even when bites appear, some individuals do not react to them, while others might mistake them for mosquito bites.

Adult bedbugs are roughly the size of an apple seed and are reddish-brown, flat, and wingless. Upon feeding, they swell up and turn bright red. Younger bed bugs go through five stages before reaching adulthood, and at the smallest size are very difficult to spot.

Other signs include moulted skins, fecal spots on your mattress or bedding, and bloodstains on your pyjamas and sheets.

Removing silverfish can be challenging and is best left to the experts. But there are some things that you can do to help prevent them such as:

  • Keeping dry goods in airtight containers,
  • Vacuuming carpets and upholstery on a regular basis to pick up any food crumbs, and
  • Use a dehumidifier in damp areas like your basement to reduce the moisture that seems to attract them.

Also check for any areas that might need to be sealed, such as seams between walls, baseboards, and any cracks that you find.

How To … Pest Control

Helping our Coquitlam customers with DIY questions.

The first step is to roll up your sleeves and start looking for them.
Bed bugs are tiny, nocturnal insects that are masters at hiding just about anywhere in your home.

Check your mattress, bedding, box spring, headboard, and bed frame; bed bugs don’t live far from their food source.

Visible signs of a bed bug infestation include clusters of small red or brown spot stains, shed bed-bug skins, and eggs on your bedding and mattress.

They can also be found behind wallpaper and picture frames, in the folds of curtains, under carpets, in furniture, and even inside clocks, phones, televisions, smoke detectors, and electrical sockets.

If you do find live or dead bed bugs, we recommend that you collect a sample in a closed container and bring it to a professional pest control company for positive identification.

You need to correctly identify the pest before you can plan an effective treatment.

Early detection is vital when it comes to successfully eliminating bed bugs. If you think you have a bed bug problem, it is important to act quickly.

Common Pest Issues in Coquitlam

With its countless parks, natural beauty, and all the conveniences that come with a modern urban area, Coquitlam attracts more than just human visitors. Whether it is rodents scampering around your attic, termites making a meal out of your foundation, or bed bugs infesting your home, once pests find their way into your property, it is going to take a lot more than an eviction notice to get rid of them.

Mouse and Rat Problems In Coquitlam

As the weather gets cooler and the fall rains return to Coquitlam, Rats and Mice will be looking for a warm, dry place to live. Nature abounds throughout Coquitlam making it home to many animals including many rats. Your home may look like an inviting option for rats and mice to over-winter.

Bed Bug Issues In Coquitlam Are On The Decline in 2020

You may have heard that heat kills bed bugs, but that is a sustained heat of above 120 °F. When summer heat warms a house to something that makes you want to plug in a fan, this is the ideal temperature and humidity for bed bugs to mate.

Silverfish Damage Valuable Sentimental Property

Silverfish and some other insect pests can damage your home or belongings. The damage they cause is the most common way to discover an infestation. Silverfish love to eat paper, book bindings, wallpaper, linens, and other such items. Discovering these things with holes chewed through them is an excellent indicator that you have silverfish.

In my case, control treatment every few years is necessary and they always keep a record to be able to offer me the best deal and appropriate service. I would recommend Solutions Pest Control.

This is the best pest control company I have ever dealt with. They have vast knowledge about “critters”, solid investigative techniques, and proven interventions. They are approachable, flexible, and easy to deal with. I live in a heavily wooded area, with lots of creatures. They have resolved some very challenging issues with pests that I have not been able to address on my own, resulting in me and my tenants being able to once again live without stress, fear, and disgust at seeing unwelcome guests in our home. I am extremely grateful!

I phoned for wasps nest removal and they were there in less than 2 hours. The problem wasn’t actually a nest so they dusted the area to stop wasps returning this season. They only charged half of the quote – unheard of nowadays. A COMPANY WITH HIGH MORAL STANDARDS!!! I was impressed with the office lady and with the technician -both pleasant and knowledgeable. Highly recommended!

I take my job very seriously and I expect the same in return, and they have done all of this and more!!! They are a keeper!!!!
