Pest Control Services
At Family Home Pest Control, we offer a long list of comprehensive services for just about any pest control problem there is. Our experienced and friendly exterminators will get rid of the pests for good and do their absolute best to carry out a smooth process.
Termites | Carpenter | Small Ants
Termites, carpenter ants, and other small ants can easily go undetected and the damage can be financially detrimental. We can do an inspection to assess the severity of the infestation and create a customized treatment plan for you.
Bees | Wasps | Hornets | Yellow Jackets
Bed bugs are often brought home from overnight travels, and tend to stick around as long as possible. We offer thorough and strong treatments for bed bugs.
Fleas can become an issue especially if you have outdoor pets. If the problem continues to occur, we would be glad to assist.
If you’re noticing a potential wood beetle problem, don’t hesitate to ask us about our treatment plan for them.
If you have seen bugs around your home that look almost prehistoric, there’s a good chance you have a silverfish problem and qualify for our specific treatment service.
Box Elder Bugs
Box Elder Bugs, similar to a beetle, are also problematic in the Northwest, but we can help with a customized exterminating service.
Meal Moths require a special exterminating treatment as well, and we have the means to do it effectively and efficiently.
Earwigs enjoy the moist weather here, but tend to seek warmth and shelter in your home during the night. To get rid of them forever, just call us.
Carpet Beetles are tiny, can be hard to spot, and a bit gross when you do. Want them gone as soon as possible? We can do that for you.
Sow Bugs, otherwise known as “rolly pollies” are also huge fans of the wet Oregon weather, but when they start to get out of hand, contact us to exterminate them.
Interior / Exterior Services

How do you prevent pests?Pest prevention depends on what you’re trying to prevent. Some best practices we always advise customers to follow are to keep all food items (including those for pets) in air-tight containers. Make sure there are no leaks in your home (including the attic and basement). Mechanical exclusion involves sealing off all entry points into the home. This is difficult for homeowners to accomplish without help, but you can keep your lawn and surrounding areas clean and free of debris. If there are any trees or bushes that provide roof access for pests, move these away from the home or trim them shorter than the roof line.
How do you control pests?Our exterminators use the right method for the job. We take into account the property, pest type,
and residents of the home. Certain methods aren’t used when small animals or children are present. We always target our efforts as well. That means identifying paths your pest uses, where they are present, and using their feeding areas and times against them to achieve the fastest and most complete results.
How is pest control done?
There are three types of pest control procedures:
- Biological pest control: This uses chemical agents and may involve baits, pheromones, sprays, and repellants.
- Physical pest control: Exterminators manually remove pests and use control methods like barriers, sealants, and environmental manipulation to control pests.
- Mechanical pest control: Mechanical devices include traps, bait stations, and other devices designed to prey on the behavior of a specific pest.
