About Insect Control

Insect often can be very resilient. So if you have been unsuccessful in eliminating the problem, you may need to take the next step. Pestcheck provides Integrated Pest Management services that are guaranteed to get to the root of the problem and solve it quickly.

With over 20 years of experience in Insect control, Pestcheck has the skills and knowledge to eliminate and prevent any insect problem in any area, from commercial, industrial to residential properties. Our technicians are specially trained in Insect control and can educate you on how to identify and respond to Insect sightings.

Since every location is different, you can expect a multi-faceted, comprehensive, and customized plan to resolve any insect problem. The result is a program that eliminates Insect and keeps them out for good! When products are needed, we only use the minimum necessary to ensure you are safe.

During a pest inspection, our technicians check the exterior and interior of your property. They are looking for any signs of infestation, damage or areas that are attractive to Insect. We will thoroughly identify potential points of entry, then install barriers, apply mesh or utilize traps. By eliminating easy access points, exclusion is one of the most reliable methods of preventing re-infestation. It blocks any Insect that were away from the nest from returning. To ensure effectiveness, we will follow up and monitor your property.

Many properties have communal areas such as trash areas, service areas, hallways and building exterior that require insect protection. We provide a flexible schedule for insect control services ie. weekly, monthly etc. We understand how an infestation can be very disruptive. Let Pestcheck help you solve all of your insect problems effectively and efficiently.

Insect Control Service

Insect Description

See what our insect control service can help you remove the following infestations.

bed bugs removal image

Bed Bugs

Bed bugs feed on human blood while the person is sleeping. Any hotel, residence, or bed & breakfast can get bed bugs. If you have bed bugs, it doesn’t mean you have poor housekeeping (although poor housekeeping compounds the problem). Bed bugs are very hard to eradicate because you have to kill every single bug and every single egg. Otherwise the infestation will just come back.

beetles removal image


Beetles like colorful flowers and plants, especially those planted around the entrances of homes and businesses. Once in, these creatures will make meals out of carpet, clothing, furniture, linens and nearly any type of fabric—even synthetics.

carpenter ants removal image

Carpenter Ants

Carpenter Ants are among some of the more destructive pests. Normally, you see the ants when they are out foraging for food and water. But what you don't see is most of them are doing some construction work in your walls, window-frames, roof, or deck.

Size: 6 – 25 mm long.
Colour: Mainly black. Sometimes red and black, solid red or brown.

cockroaches removal image


Cockroaches are commonly found in buildings or homes as they prefer warm environments close to food & water. They usually remain hidden in cracks during the day and search for food at night. They can also spread many kinds of bacteria while travelling one location to another, mostly via food items.

fleas removal image


Is your dog or cat suffering from fleas? Besides causing painful, itchy bites and rashes, fleas can also carry and transmit diseases, like typhus and tapeworms. Don’t stress over how to get rid of fleas in your house or waste time reading DIY articles claiming they know how to get rid of fleas. We combine treatment with an insect growth regulator to kill off fleas in pets’ resting areas and elsewhere.

flies removal image


If you’re experiencing problems with flies, trying different chemicals can be dangerous and using fly strips leaves carcasses in full view. If left untreated, diseases such as E.Coli, Salmonella and Typhoid could affect the people living or working in your property. Contact us for the most effective long-term solution.

fruit flies removal image

Fruit Flies

Fruit flies are tiny black flying insects. They eat and lay their eggs on rotting and overripe fruits, garbage and other organic materials. They’re attracted to sugary foods and will multiply quickly once they appear.

hornets removal image


Hornets are natural protectors, with a strong drive to keep their nests safe. This has led them into conflict as unwanted guests around homes- where they may sting if threatened or disturbed. When they build a nest on or around your property, it can make the enjoyment of that space difficult. Contact us for professional help.

moths removal image


While moths do not pose a health risk, they are a pest in homes. They lay eggs in dark and rarely disturbed areas where clothes or other textiles are stored. Their larvae can cause severe damage to clothes, fabrics, leather and carpets. The damage may continue for many weeks after moth caterpillars have hatched.

pantry bugs removal image

Pantry Bugs

The most common pantry pests are weevils, beetles and moths. They are usually found within cabinets or pantry food items. Regularly cleaning will typically prevent them from taking over your kitchen. Contact us if you need help with getting rid of them!

pavement ants removal image

Pavement Ants

Pavement ants are small nuisance pests that are also known as sugar or picnic ants. They are often seen feeding on sugary spills or attacking tiny food crumbs. The ants you see inside are the same type of ants you may see making the tiny dirt mounds in sidewalks or pavement.

Size: 2.5 to 3 mm long.
Colour: Darkish brown to black with lighter coloured legs.

pharaoh ants removal image

Pharaoh Ants

A small ant species, pharaoh ants typically nest in warm, hard to reach areas such as a wall, kitchen splashboards, counter tops and in wall sockets.

Size: Workers are 2 mm long & Queens are 4 mm long.
Colour: Yellow to light brown. Queens are a reddish colour.

silverfish removal image


Silverfish thrive in moist, humid environments. Believe it or not, they can live up to 8 years and reproduce frequently. This is why they can be a huge nuisance and over time they can contaminate pantry items or potentially cause damage to your household items.

spiders removal image


Spiders are horrifying pests for anyone living in Vancouver. They can seek refuge in homes and businesses. From cellar spiders to wolf spiders, our spider exterminators know what it takes to get rid of spiders and stop them from returning.

termites removal image


Termites are attracted to any wood. Any framing, landscaping and firewood are all appealing to them. They can enter your property through the smallest openings and eat cellulose material (eg. wood, plants, carpet, insulation, sheetrock paper, animal feces, fabric, & more).

Size: 6 to 20 mm.
Colour: Can vary in colour from white to dark brown.

wasps removal image


Unlike our bee friends, wasps have become unwanted guests in and around homes all over the world. With a strong natural drive to protect their nests, wasps and hornets have become known for their painful and sometimes dangerous stings. Despite their amazing craftsmanship, when they build a nest on or around a home, it can limit a person’s ability to enjoy their property.

Frequently Asked Questions

Our Insect Control Services

We have been helping our Metro Vancouver residents and businesses with their pest control needs for several years. We have gathered the most common questions that we have received, and we answered them for you. The following is a list of questions and answers at your disposal.

  • General
  • Ants
  • Bed Bugs
  • Spiders
  • Fruit Flies
  • Silverfish
  • Wasps
Are the treatments safe for my family and pets?

The pesticides we use are extremely safe for your family and pets. Prior to your treatment you can download any of our preparation sheets. These provide step-by-step instructions on how to prepare your home prior to your treatment. On top of that, our technicians will provide you with advice and recommendations. This will ensure the safety of your home and family from beginning to end.

How long should I stay out of the house after insect control?

If your home is treated with a spray insecticide, we recommend staying out of your house for 4 hours. However, anyone who has allergies, asthma, is pregnant, children under the age of 4 or anyone with respiratory problems should consult their family doctor for re-entry times.

Is there an odour after the treatment?

Most of our chemicals have no odour at all. However, certain insecticides may leave a slight odour. This smell will dissipate after a few hours.

However, when you return home and the smell is still present, ventile your home by opening a few windows.

Do I need to clean my home after insect treatment?

Fight the urge to do a deep clean of your home for at least a week after you receive an insect control treatment. Cleaning cabinets and other areas after a treatment is tempting. But this can cause the chemicals to be rubbed off prematurely. Which will then reduce the overall power of the treatment.

What is Integrated Pest Management or IPM?

Integrated Pest Management or IPM combines common-sense practices with years of pest control experience to recognize when which pests are most active and prevent them from entering the home before they become a problem. This practice is more effective, environmentally friendly, and safer for families and pets than traditional pest control methods.

Do tenants pay for insect control?

This is a tough question to answer. According to the BC Residential Tenancy Policy Guidelines:

“The Landlord is responsible for ensuring that rental units and property, or manufactured home sites and parks, meet “health, safety and housing standards” established by law, and are reasonably suitable for occupation given the nature and location of the property.” AND “The landlord is generally responsible for major projects, such as tree cutting, pruning and insect control.”

“The tenant must maintain “reasonable health, cleanliness and sanitary standards” throughout the rental unit or site, and property or park.”

In general, landlords are responsible for pest control unless they can show the infestation is a result of tenant behavior. If this is so, the tenant becomes responsible.

Stephen Scott

Owner, Head Technician

Brought up in Newcastle Upon Tyne, England, I have lived in many countries with my wife and kids over the years. However, immigrating to Canada with my family in 2009 was the best decision I made.

My career in pest control started back in the early 2000’s working for myself in Spain and then for Poulin’s Pest Control here in Vancouver. I started Pestcheck Pest Control along side my wife, Julie in 2018. My family gave me the incentive to work hard and make this company successful.

When Julie and I are not working we love to travel, especially to Mexico. I also like to cook delicious food for the family.

Stephen is very knowledgeable and can find a solution for any problem. Highly recommend if you need any pest control services!!
- Eric Alvano

Julie Scott

Owner, Manager

I work with Stephen and the boys behind the scenes. I am usually the first person you speak to when you call Pestcheck Pest Control. Answering your general questions, scheduling appointments, blogging and managing our social media are among many things I do.

Keeping up to date on the latest technology is key to being the most effective and organized pest control company in Vancouver.

In the family business work never really stops, but on our days off I enjoy catching the latest shows on HGTV and Coronation Street! I love spending time with Stephen, my dad and the boys.

Amazing team. Julie is awesome!
