    We use Family Pest Solutions on a regularly scheduled program and it has greatly reduced the number of bugs in and around our house. We had a lot of bees and nests in the past, and the interior had a very big fly problem especially in the fall and winter it is all gone now.

    I highly recommend Jack and Family Pest Solutions. I contracted Family Pest Solutions for a pest inspection. Jack was very knowledgeable and gave me a detailed plan of action using the most up-to-date methods to treat my issue. Overall, I would recommend Family Pest Solutions to friends and family without hesitation.

    I had a rather large and active nest of yellow jackets that is now no longer. Matt was professional and well-versed in what needed to be done. Jack and his team of pros are always focused on getting it right, well worth the price.

    We've used Family Pest Solution for two years and couldn't be happier with them. Gary usually services our house and he's professional, kind, and always explains in detail what's going on. Glad to be on ongoing service with them to keep our home pest free!

    We had a large active wasp nest and they came the same day and took care of the entire problem. Huge thank you!

    From helpful phone calls to quick and friendly service, this business is awesome! I was originally very worried about the process, having pests in the house is disgusting! They answered all my questions and reassured me. Everything went according to plan - arrived on time, reviewed what they would do and what to expect. Great people, I’d refer them to all!

    We had a great experience and a good laugh when they found where the squirrels were nesting and storing hundreds, yes hundreds of nuts in an old canning cellar that we did not use. Reasonable price, quick to set up service, friendly, and explained everything. This is the second service we have used and hands down would recommend them!

    Our technician was very knowledgeable and thorough upon inspection. He explained every detail of the work to be completed. I have total trust in this company and will definitely recommend them.

    This is the 2nd year they are doing treatment for ants. I found they are honest, punctual, and do a great job at very fair prices. I would tell anyone in need an exterminator to call them.

Seed Bugs & Stink Bugs

Western Conifer Seed Bugs

Western Conifer Seed Bugs love to eat the seeds of conifer trees, but can also cause problems in your home. An infestation can cause an immense amount of damage to your home, and if you suspect that you have an infestation then you should give Family Pest Solutions a call for a free pest control inspection.

Stink Bugs

Stink bugs are usually detrimental to crop yields, finding food in many different types of crops. However, homeowners are not safe from them either. They may not cause any structural damage to your home, but they will seek out homes to stay protected from the cold winter season.

Spiders & Earwigs


There are many different types of spiders, but they can be a nuisance at any time of the year. Spiders pose a threat to yourself, your family, and your pets as their bites can be poisonous. Some spider bites have been known to kill humans and animals. You must let us know if you’ve been spotting spiders around your home. We can perform an inspection for free and let you know what options are available if you have an infestation on your hands.


Earwigs garnered their unique name from the myth that they would enter people’s ears while they slept and bore into their brains! While this is a very interesting myth, and not true, the name “earwig” has continued to stick around. Earwigs can be an intimidating little bug – they have long pincers on their rear ends. No need to worry, however, as earwigs are non-venomous and don’t bite people or animals.

Box Elder Beetles

Box elder beetles like to consume sap from plants. They can infest a tree, causing the leaves to turn yellow and putting dark spots on the stems of a tree. Box elder beetles are also known to consume fruits as well. If you do not have food products such as flour sealed properly, they can even turn up in there.


We don’t only get rid of Powderpost Beetles – Family Pest Solutions knows that there are many other kinds of beetles that can potentially infest your home and cause damage to it. Some may cause structural damage, while others may cause damage to furniture or carpets. If you have been noticing beetles or any other unusual pests in or around your home, schedule a free inspection with Family Pest Solutions so that we may be able to identify and offer solutions to a potential infestation.
