West Des Moines, Iowa’s namesake comes from its relation to the capital city of Iowa – Des Moines. Being the second largest city in Polk county, and the 10th largest in Iowa, it boasts a population of over 55,000 people. With the Raccoon River running through the heart of the city, it is no stranger to the common pests found near large bodies of water such as ants, mosquitoes, mice, and spiders. Here at Spidex, we understand that each city and household comes with its own unique set of challenges. We are ready to create a custom tailored solution to meet your unique needs. That’s why we work hard to protect your home from the specific pests and insects that you’re seeing around your home, garden, and lawn – and other pests prevalent in West Des Moines and surrounding cities.
Whether it’s spring, summer, winter, or fall, there are pests that show up around every corner of your home, lawn, garage, and garden. Iowa residents are no stranger to the varying challenges associated with each change of season. Pest control is no different, that’s why our service is designed to protect your home year round. During cold months, pest problems tend to move indoors, especially if insects have been building a nest in your walls.
If you live in an old home, or a heavily wooded area, then you may experience certain pest issues like ants and spiders. The detrimental carpenter ants gravitate towards older woods, and can cause damage to your home. Newer developments find that the construction often disrupts nests of mice, resulting in mouse activity – even in their brand new home. Regardless of your houses specific needs, Spidexx is here to take care of the job!

During its early years, West Des Moines was a large trading and shipping junction in Iowa. It was incorporated under the name of Valley Junction in 1893. It’s earlier history had a rocky start, but that didn’t keep the residents down . In 1914, Jack Prince built a 1 mile oval race track made of 980,000 feet of 2X4’s laid down.The track was one of 24 similar tracks nationwide and seated up to 10,000 people. At that time, it was a great boost to the economy, bringing in drivers from all over the world. However, the residents were soon to associate this track with the towns bloody past.
In 1915, an accident injuring several drivers, and killing a mechanic, caused the track to close down 2 years later. The community was deeply affected by this loss. The track’s memory will always be part of the community. The 980,000 feet of 2X4’s were salvaged for construction in different building throughout Valley Junction.
Again around 1922, the cities foundations were shaken because of a 22 month strike from machinists at the Rock Island shops. The strike put neighbors against each other and caused suffering on the community. Many residents were forced to choose to cross the picket line just to feed their families. Despite it’s rough history, West Des Moines is a booming community with a growing economy, housing market, and plenty of things to do!
The city is home to many large corporations, such as Wells Fargo Home Mortgage, Hy-Vee, Aviva, MetLife and many small businesses as well. Not only are there great places for employment, there are nine elementary schools, two junior high schools, one high school, a freshmen only high school, and an alternative high school. There are many notable people from West Des Moines including basketball player, Matt Bullard, the head Coach of US women’s gymnastics team in the 2008 olympics, Liang Chow, and Shawn Johnson, a 2008 Olympic gold medalist and gymnast.
