Products & Services

Ant Control

Many times there are multiple satellite colonies inside, with a super colony outside.
Our ant exterminators will first identify what species of ants are present.
Then we will conduct a search to identify their trails and colonies.
Colonies located through customer communication and through inspection will be treated.
Ant colonies are not always located. Trails are not always active when we are on site.
Combining three ant control formulations into our protocol sets us apart from other ant exterminating service.

Flea Control

Flea control season gears up in Cleveland, OH when the weather turns hot. Fleas thrive in hot and humid weather. Once it exceeds 80 degrees average daytime temperature, the flea reproduction life cycle goes into overdrive. If you find yourself itching, especially around the ankles, you will want to call your local flea exterminator.

Cockroach Control

American cockroach and Oriental cockroaches are uncommon in Cleveland, OH. Yet they still show up in certain circumstances.
These are larger than the other two cockroach species found in Cleveland. They are also cold hardy. They are the only species that can survive year round outside.

German cockroaches are a tropical species. If you have them, you do not have to worry too much about treating the exterior. These insect pests are like bedbugs. They hitchhike their way into the home.

Brown banded cockroaches are not very likely to be found in Cleveland, OH. They do show up though. Similar in appearance to German cockroaches, these cockroaches will be found flying off the walls.

Customer Testimonials

I can't say enough good things about Shawn from Lakewood Exterminating! His response time is AMAZING. His knowledge and work ethic are incredible. I strongly recommend him. He's quick, efficient and gets the job done :) You won't be disappointed.

Called on a holiday weekend and they were here within 10 minutes!! Always so prompt and quick to resolve your problem. Thank you so much.

You guys were fast and came when we needed you to. You were also 40% cheaper than a service I used 3 years ago and did a better job getting rid of the pests as well as taking preventive measures. Staff was very nice and polite. If I need you again, I'll definitely call, and if a friend needs a pest control company I will be sure to recommend you.

Can't say enough good things about Lakewood Exterminating! The owner (Shawn) is very professional and knowledgeable. I can tell his goal is to operate an honest company that looks out for their customers. I called him, he came out the very next day, and we have not seen any more ants ever since! I would recommend their services to anyone. Thanks again, Shawn!

Fast and Efficient! Shawn answered my phone call immediately and stopped by my house that same morning to assess ( and spray) my wasp situation. He was friendly, professional, and did a great job. The online receipt, billing and payment process was so easy to navigate through. I will definitely call upon Shawn if more unwelcome critters show up.

Shawn gave us a call back very promptly and was able to schedule us for the next day. He arrived early and had the problem managed quickly and efficiently. Billing and payments were also incredibly straightforward and fast. We will use his services again in the future if the need arises!

We discovered a nest of yellow jackets - one bit my husband. When we called Lakewood Exterminating, Shawn answered the phone immediately, was gracious, and scheduled an appointment for us the very next day. The nest was treated the first thing the next morning and we have a 60 day guarantee should additional treatment be needed on the same nest. We are very pleased with the timely, thorough service we received. We will definitely use them again.

Great service and communication. Shawn is always following up on service and willing to come out if needed. I would highly recommend. Price is reasonable and payment system is easy. Lakewood Exterminating offers peace of mind.

From Our Website

When you hire a Cleveland pest control company for the first time- you're basically inviting someone you have never met into your home. As a result, it's crucial to find a Cleveland based pest control professional that you can trust. We believe that, without a doubt, it's our responsibility to create a relationship with our clients. We want you to feel undeniably secure with our crew inside your home. Yes, we're certainly there to kill bugs. But even more than that, we're there to take care of your home, and make sure your family stays safe.

Most pest control companies take the same approach with all of their clients — they find the "right spray" for the "right bug" and call it a day. We believe that the secret to the best pest control — the kind that requires as little follow-up as possible, and that treats your home with respect — is all about personalization. We've spent years studying and treating local homes in the Lakewood area. All of that experience allows us to come to you armed with highly specialized knowledge — we know the pests, what they like (and, more importantly, what they don't like), and we know the nooks, crannies, and quirks of homes just like yours.

Find an innovative solution with our specialty wildlife control services in Cleveland, OH. Go beyond hiring just a trapper. Focus on making the repairs necessary to keep animals out. Our wildlife removal has now expanded past our top-notch rodent control service. Since Lakewood and Rocky River have so many mice, skunks consequently come around to feed on them. Therefore on top of rodent-proofing homes, we also provide deck and porch exclusions. If a bat has gotten into your home, let us know. Call us for wildlife control service when you are hearing noises in the walls.

When purchasing, selling or refinancing a home, you may be required to show proof of a Wood Destroying Insect Inspection. In particular, you will need a W.D.I. Inspection if you take out an HUD, FHA, or a VA loan. A W.D.I. Inspection is completely separate from a standard home inspection. As such, technicians who perform W.D.I. Inspections are required to carry a special license. The purpose of the WDI Inspection is to provide the parties with a factual report of the inspector's observations as to the presence or absence of visible evidence from WDI, damage due to any such infestation, and recommendation(s) for treatment(s) necessary for control of any infestation(s) noted, based upon a careful and professional visual inspection of the areas which were open and accessible for visual inspection with in or on the structure(s) listed on the Real Estate Contract on the day that the inspection was performed.

If you have a bed bug infestation, at this point you've probably realized that getting rid of them isn't as simple as throwing your mattress to the curb. In fact, getting rid of bed bugs isn't really simple at all. Bed bugs are small, easy to miss, and fast at reproducing. Additionally, they're remarkably resistant to many over-the-counter remedies. Many homeowners spend thousands of dollars on treatments, only to discover more of these blood-suckers a week later. Needless to say, dealing with a bed bug infestation can be extremely frustrating.

In order to make your home inhabitable to German cockroaches, consider these 4 factors: shelter, food, water, and heat/humidity. If there's one thing in common between all of the cockroach jobs we take on, it's that they all have excellent cockroach hiding places. Cockroaches are nocturnal and retreat into crevices during the day. The gaps around cabinets are also great hiding spots. Cockroaches are also known to hide out inside cabinets, electrical outlets, door frames, and plumbing. You'd be surprised how many homes with chronic roach infestations also have a chronic water leak.

Once you've identified the species, the next step is to formulate a control plan. We'll provide specific recommendations to eliminate outdoor habitats, seal off entry points, and reduce or eliminate food sources altogether. Our single service spider control comes with a 30-day warranty. Alternatively, our seasonal pest control service offers peace of mind year-round. Finally, our IPM service focuses on long-term population reduction. This service concentrates on exclusion, habitat modification, and elimination of food sources.

Responds so quickly when you have an issue, which I really appreciate! Very considerate of pets in the house, they took the time to move dog bowls and water which is amazing and also give me additional directions for the pets after the visit. Always the service we turn to when issues arise! Shawn is friendly and easy to contact, and treated our various bug problems. He thoroughly explains what he will do and gives suggestions on how to prevent future issues. He followed up as needed and continues to provide excellent service.
