Pest Control in Des Moines and Ames IA

The heart of the Hawkeye state is home to its capital, Des Moines, as well as the popular college town of Ames. Both cities live near large rivers. Namely, the Raccoon and Des Moines Rivers. With riverland comes the dampness and humidity that draws an increase in potential pest problems.

Plunkett’s Pest Control is a trusted provider of integrated pest management services all throughout Iowa, including its center. If you need local, quality pest control you can trust in Des Moines or Ames - Plunkett’s has you covered.

Pest Control That Understands Des Moines & Ames

Two of the most densely populated cities in Iowa are Des Moines and Ames. These areas are more likely to have city-dwelling pests. This can be in contrast to many of the common farm-loving pests found elsewhere in the state. Some of the pests our Plunkett’s experts have faced the most in these cities include:

  • Cockroaches: Cockroaches love the robust populations found in urban cities like Des Moines and Ames.. This is especially true during the humid summers common in Iowa. Plunkett’s expert services can completely remove roaches from your property within just six weeks.

  • Rodents: Mice and rats are city-loving pest animals. They’re especially prevalent in late summer when they’re looking for ideal overwintering locations. Preventative services like the ones offered by Plunkett’s will help keep them from making their home in yours.

  • Bed bugs: Bed bugs love apartment buildings and dorms like you can find at Drake University in Des Moines. Plunkett’s highly-trained K9 inspection teams find bed bugs with near-perfect accuracy, and our heat treatments eliminate them just as effectively.

  • Spider: Spiders are attracted to dark, secluded areas where they can hunt other pests. They tend to love preying on Iowa’s many flying and crawling insects. Plunkett’s technicians are experts in spider removal and exclusion.
