Pest & Insect Control – Colorado

Keeping pests and insects OUT of your home

Colorado is home to thousands of species of pests and insects year-round. But only a handful have a tendency to wander into your personal or professional dwelling. They’re particularly evident during periods of hot, dry weather in the spring and mid-summer months, as well as in the late summer and early fall, before the seek shelter from the winter cold.

Indoor pest and insect control is best achieved with an effective outdoor application – keeping both pests and insecticides OUT of your home or building.

Spiders in Colorado

Spiders in Colorado are found in many areas outside and inside your home. Spider control begins by eliminating places where spiders live, reproduce and feed.

Weeds or trash near your foundation often encourages spiders and other insects to live. The close proximity to your outdoors walls are typically how they gain entrance indoors – spaces around windows and doors, cracks in foundations, gaps around outdoor pipes and wiring.

  • Spiders feed solely on other insects, which makes them beneficial in managing pests around your dwelling.
  • Spiders often wander indoors in the fall when temperatures force them to find shelter.
  • Common indoor spiders include funnel web spiders, cobweb spiders, cellar spiders and sac spiders.

Ants in Colorado

Any our quite common in yards, gardens and fields across the state. There are perhaps thousands of ants living on any one property, though they go unnoticed much of the time – spending much of their life underground.

While their overall activities can be beneficial (feeding on other insects, scavenging helps recycle organic matter) when they enter indoors, they are deemed a nuisance.

Ants enter indoors when they’re seeking food or water, so removing stagnant sources of both will reduce the temptation.
