“Our technician was great and very thorough. Our son kept getting bites on his arms and legs and he checked all the little books and crannies and sprayed generously so he wouldn’t get bit by anything. Spidexx is great with working around your schedule.”
“Charles is a fantastic ambassador to your brand, I just can’t say enough great things about him! We are very pleased with the Spidexx product, the automated service, payment and scheduling and we would probably be ‘satisfied’ with the service if not for Charles, who takes it over the top. He is kind, professional, prompt, and patient with our super vocal dog Theo. Thank you Charles!!”

There are several pests that can become issues for Des Moines Residents, and our highly skilled technicians help to protect your home from damage. Our techs arrive in their Spidexx uniform and van, and will be inspecting your home, each visit, for signs of activity. Whether he’s working inside, or outside, you can trust our technicians to thoroughly protect your home from household pests. We create a barrier around your home, using a repellent product that helps keep unwanted pests out of the home. Additionally, we will treat problem areas outdoors such as garages, sheds, and any visible signs of activity.
Indoors we typically use a baiting method, in conjunction with a non repellent product, so when pests like ants walk through it they will take it back to their colony and spread the product into the source. All of our products are used in kennels, nursing homes, hospitals, and schools; so there is no need to leave the home during the service. We can’t guarantee you’ll never see a bug again, but we can guarantee we will always come out if you do. We offer free re-services as part of our quarterly maintenance program as well.
There are different peaks in pest activity throughout the year, that make our quarterly treatment service a great way to combat these changes in activity in different seasons to see long term results. Both spring and summer are two of the most common times you might see an increase in pest activity in and around your home due to heavy rainfall and increasing temperatures. We focus on problem areas such as garages, sheds, and any visible signs of activity (such as wasps nests). We also have a mosquito service where we create a barrier around your property using a fine mist. Mosquitoes prefer large bodies of water, which makes mosquito control crucial for residents in Des Moines, the meeting point for the Des Moines and Raccoon Rivers.
We focus on the interior of the home during fall and winter and target pests such as mice and spiders. This is the time that most people think they don’t need pest control, but as it gets colder mice find ways to squeeze in through small cracks in the foundation, or will chew entry holes through weatherstripping around the house. We offer a mouse control service where our technicians place child and pet proof bait stations near entry points inside the home that the mice eat and then leave the home after ingestion to find water. We have a more aggressive mouse monitoring service for homes with high activity, that addresses the issue outside of the home in addition. Spiders are another common pest during this time, as they come into your home and live during the winter. Overtime, you will start to see more and more spiders in the home if left untreated, as they will become domesticated.
We also deal with less common pests. For example, carpenter ants gravitate towards older woods, so if your home is more than a couple decades old you might find these ants tunneling into the wood of your home. If you’re a pet owner, then you unfortunately may dealing with fleas, which are an annoyance to both your pet and yourself. Another irritating pest, bed bugs are an invasive pest that will drive you insane! Our aggressive treatment service will remove these unwanted guests from your home. We will help you prepare for treatment before, answer any questions during, and follow up to make sure that the issue has been resolved entirely after.
