Bed Bugs

Bed Bugs

Control efforts made by non-professionals will often make the problem worse. It’s better to hire a pest management professional to inspect and control a bed bug infestation due to the complexities and difficulties that an infestation presents. . In most infestations, bed bugs will spread throughout the bedroom or closets into other rooms. They can live for long periods without feeding and may hide in inaccessible wall voids or other hard to reach hiding places.
If you suspect you have an infestation, contact us for more specific questions or to schedule an inspection. Normally an inspection must be performed before any treatment decisions are made.

Ant control


Our treatment focuses on colony elimination rather than a quick fix. We treat inside and out and use a combination of baits and sprays appropriate to the situation. Treatment costs depend on the specific situation.



We are experts at getting rodents out of your home and preventing future infestations. It’s because we understand their instincts and behaviors. You can count on Whitworth Pest Solutions. We have years of training and experience in rodent trapping, removal, access control and prevention.
Your rodent problem is important to us. We answer every call with the same sense of urgency and work hard to get rid of rodents in your home as fast as possible!

Customer Testimonials

Really great service--reliable and timely, and my favorite thing about Whitworth is they don't upsell or sell you something that you don't need. Very knowledgeable employees too!

Hey Guys,
Had a great experience with Michael today about a smelly rat that had moved himself in via a hole in the slab and set up residence. Michael was able to give us a ton of helpful and calm information about how the critters think and what drives their behavior so that we could set up a method to get rid of him, and Michael made excellent and extremely helpful specific solutions that we have already implemented to make sure the word doesn't get out about this residence to any of the rats friends. Having someone who knew what they were talking about and could explain it all was very reassuring and helped take a lot of the panic out of the fact that this critter is about. Dealing with the company was easy and fast, they worked around our limited and scheduled access to this rental property, showed up right when they said, and everyone was extremely professional and helpful. We haven't heard the *snap* of the trap yet, but soon, oh yes, soon....Would absolutely use Whitworth again, and I hope you don't have a rat, but if you do, call these guys.

Fantastic company to work with Their technicians are well trained, professional and effective in dealing with a variety of pest invasions. As an avid birder, I have bird feeders on my property which also attract mammals, especially rats.I am also a gardener and boy do insects and other vermin love the berries and vegetables. Bait stations help to control these critters. Recently our neighbors were invaded with rats as well - I recommended they try Whitworth Pest So[utions They were very pleased with the results. Got pests? Call Whitworth.

Never a good time when you have to call a pest company, we were having a rat issue in our crawl space. Micheal W. was the tech. that came out did his inspection and determined rats were burrowing in under the foundation. gave us his recommendation, which was spot on. Very professional and honest.

Whitworth arrived early for a rodent problem we've been having. We had removed a tree that hung over our house, but upon further inspection, the rep felt we were doing everything they would have recommended, believing the tree was probably the problem. He didn't charge us, nor would he take a tip or even a cool drink. He was very thorough and professional.

Whitworth Pest Solutions has been our pest control service for our residence for several years after I met Erik at a business meeting. They are a quality company that does a comprehensive treatment of our home. Whitworth is responsive to our requests for special follow-up treatment when requested like for sugar ants which is a sporadic problem. Attendants introduce themselves on every visit and when home ask us if we have any requests while they are completing the service. Overall, they do a good job and professional.

These folks are very professional straight shooters who really know what they're doing. Don't be fooled by door knocking, fast talking scam artists. These folks are the real deal. I've been a happy client for more than 20 years.

I called Whitworth because of an ant problem. The ants are gone, hopefully, never to return. I have continued with maintenance and am so happy with the results.
Thank you to the crew.
