Pest Control For Your Home or Business
At RainCity Pest Control, our number one priority is keeping your family safe and your home safe. That’s why we created our Residential Maintenance Program, a year-round pest control solution that includes a thorough inspection, seasonal visits, carefully targeted treatments, exclusion techniques and preventative measures. Our Residential Maintenance Program covers pests for your peace of mind so you’ll never have to worry about a pest, rodent or stinging insect again!
How We Keep Your Home Pest Free
A detailed, multi-point inspection by a licensed Service Professional is done inside and outside your home to determine the type of pests present and the extent of your current infestation.
A plan is implemented to address any pest services needed, immediate pest concerns, as well as your ongoing pest issues. We’ll find and monitor pest “hot spots” and make carefully targeted applications using the least-toxic, lowest-risk materials as part of our IPM approach.
A protective “barrier” is applied around your home to block pests from entering in the first place, followed by seasonal visits to address specific pest issues. Our seasonal visits are designed to combat the ever changing pest pressures common in BC. We’ll also identify conducive conditions for pest activity and recommend ways to make your home less appealing to pests throughout the year.

Are pest treatments safe for my family and pets?
We are often asked this question and understandably so. At RainCity Pest Control, our number one priority is to keep you and your loved ones safe and your home pest free. We do this by solving your pest problem using the least amount of materials possible in or around your home. This includes a careful inspection, locating pest “hot spots” in order to help minimize conditions that promote pest activity. We then do targeted applications using the least toxic materials as possible. As a result, random application of material is always avoided.
Our team is highly trained and we will always make sure to avoid applying materials in places that your family and pets may have frequent contact.
Integrated Pest Management
RainCity Pest Control employs a method called Integrated Pest Management (IPM) in its maintenance programs for residential customers and for commercial customers. IPM, which emphasizes prevention and management in a long-term partnership with you, the customer, involves five actions: identify, monitor, plan, control, prevent.
Identify & Monitor
When you call on RainCity Pest Control, a trained service professional, will meet with you at the property; whether residential or commercial. We will scout the building and property, looking for signs of infestation or situations likely to attract pests. Indications of pests may include feces, structural damage, etc. Once the pests are accurately identified, the service professional will pinpoint sources of the pest’s food, water, and shelter. Monitoring may also be employed to determine the extent of a problem. The service professional will also look at the bigger picture, analyzing the surroundings to determine whether a worse or different type of pest problem is likely to occur, based on the location, type of property, and surrounding area.
Plan, Control, & Prevent
The service professional will then review the findings with you and present a plan of action to both control and prevent infestation. Perhaps the pest level is tolerable and only ongoing monitoring is required. In other cases, mechanical solutions, such as traps, or physical solutions, such as screens, may be proposed. Some solutions may need to be implemented by the property owner. For example, perhaps old lumber in the backyard are perfect breeding grounds for mice, or perhaps a swing set is located too close to an area of tall grass, which is a favorite harboring spot for ants. Leaking pipes may need to be repaired or cracks caulked.
If mechanical means are not appropriate or sufficient, the service professional may recommend the use of chemicals. In determining which pesticides to use, the licensed and extensively trained RainCity Pest Control professional considers the type of pest, the level of infestation, and the type of property as well as any particular circumstances such as the presence of dogs and/or children. The service professional will then draw on the expert knowledge regarding which substance to use, in which form, and how often. The goal is effective pest solutions with the lowest impact on the customer and the environment.
IPM: The Holistic Approach
IPM is an effective method to not only treat but prevent pest issues with the lowest impact and least toxic measures.
