The start of a new year always brings fresh ideas and optimism to the workplace, and the Sprague Pest Experts are right there with you. We are always searching for new and better ways to deliver effective pest management services to our customers to protect their homes and businesses from destructive and potentially harmful pests.

As the calendar turns to 2013 the Sprague Pest Experts are keeping an eye on several pest management trends that could impact our commercial and residential customers. From rodents looking for a new place to call home along Seattle’s waterfront to navigating new food safety regulations at a food processing plant in Idaho, 2013 has the potential to be very interesting for all things pests.

Ratpocalypse – You have heard and seen the Sprague Pest Experts talk about the potential impact the massive Highway 99 Tunnel Project might have on pest activity in and around the Seattle waterfront. With the tunnel digging scheduled to start in late spring or early summer, the Sprague Pest Experts are working closely with area business owners and residents to protect their structures from unwanted rodent and insect visitors. We have been hard at work implementing the latest exclusion techniques to build rodents and other pests out of structures, and we will stay on the case throughout the construction process.

Bed Bugs – This nasty little pest has been trending over the past few years and all the attention is going to its tiny little head! With the hustle and bustle of holiday travel behind us now is a good time to make sure you didn’t bring home an extra “gift” from your trip to grandma’s house. The Sprague Pest Experts have the world’s most accurate bed bug inspectors on four legs that can quickly and effectively identify bed bug infestations in hotel rooms, apartments and condominiums, dorm rooms or anywhere these blood thirsty pests like to hide.

Food Safety Regulations – Our food industry clients have always been focused on producing safe and healthy food for consumers. The Sprague Pest Experts play an important role in helping them achieve that by preventing potentially harmful pests from infesting and spoiling processed food and food commodities. In 2013, the food industry is faced with a slew of new regulations aimed at ensuring greater levels of food safety. The Sprague Pest Experts are ready to help our clients decipher and adhere to these new regulations, and make sure they are prepared to pass their food audit inspections.

Proactive Approach – No one likes a surprise, especially one that involves pests! The Sprague Pest Experts approach is to be proactive when it comes to preventing pests from becoming a problem in the first place. Our work on the Ratpocalypse project illustrates how a proactive approach can reduce the threat posed by pests and protect our customers. In 2013 we plan on being well ahead of the pest curve for our clients.

Sprague Pest Solutions looks forward to serving the pest management needs of our commercial and residential customers in 2013.
