This summer just got really exciting! Sprague Pest Solutions proudly announces our expansion into Colorado. Effective June 1, 2011, we will begin serving the Denver and Boulder areas. The new service market is a result of a partial acquisition of Copesan Partner, EnviroPest, and a new partnership between our two companies to serve Colorado.
“National and local clients in Denver have come to expect high quality pest management and prevention programs from EnviroPest. We share this commitment to quality and look forward to serving the local community,” said Alfie Treleven, President and CEO.
As the primary Copesan Partner serving Denver and Boulder, Sprague will provide commercial and residential pest management and prevention services to local, regional and national accounts. We will also support EnviroPest with bed bug services, heat treatments and K9 inspections. EnviroPest will continue to provide Wildlife and Repair & Restorations services throughout Colorado, as well as pest services in the counties surrounding their Loveland, CO office.
Sprague welcomes EnviroPest’s strong technician base in Denver and Boulder onto the Sprague team. A new Sprague service center located in Denver has opened to support sales and service growth plans for the area.
“Both companies bring strengths to the partnership that will benefit the other and enable us to better serve home owners and businesses in Colorado. This is a win-win for all of us,” said Marc Dykstra, President of EnviroPest.
Since 1926, Sprague’s quality and uncompromising customer service has enabled us to become the largest, regional, family-owned pest management and prevention in the Northwest and Intermountain regions. We look forward to serving Colorado with these same values and providing our clients with a seamless transition.

Bed bugs are small insects that are having a big effect on businesses in Portland, Oregon and Seattle, Washington as well as across the Pacific Northwest and Intermountain regions. At Sprague Pest Solutions we understand that treating bed bugs inappropriately can lead to a larger infestation and may even lead to the closure, albeit temporary, of your operation and the loss of income.
This is a huge honor and Copesan, Sprague's partner, could not be more thrilled to congratulate our entire Partner network on your hard work and commitment to quality that is clearly appreciated by one of our largest clients. Bravo Sprague employees!

Here's an excerpt:
[Ray was] looking at a year-end report for a major national company and saw the chief executive officer’s name and decided to call. He got right through to the chief executive officer and had a nice conversation. His lesson learned from this was that sometimes you just have to make the call right then and there rather than putting it off. He also has some great suggestions when prospects say they are happy with who they’re currently using or not interested in meeting. To these objections, Ray says, “I understand our position, and what I’ve found is that when leaders in your industry such as yourself allow me to come in and meet in person, we can provide at least three options: 1) Validate the current service you have in place. 2) Show you other options that may enhance your current service. These might be options your current provider does not have the capability to provide or options not in their portfolio. 3) Finally, we may show you that there is more value to be had by making a change. You win in all three cases, because you have validated your choices.
Way to go Ray!
