Our Pest Control Packages
At High Country Pest Control, we offer a variety of pest control maintenance packages in order to ensure that your pests get out and stay out. These packages include:
Quarterly Maintenance Plan
Starting as low as $98 per quarter, our quarterly pest control maintenance plan includes the extermination of:
- Other crawling insects and vermin
With our quarterly plan, we inspect and treat the interior and exterior of your home, paying close attention to cracks, crevices, plumbing lines, entry points, and unfinished areas where pests often like to retreat during our initial service. After this initial service, we move to an exterior-only pest control plan in order to keep pests away with inside services as-needed.
This plan is an excellent option, as different pests are active year-round. With our custom treatment plan for your home or business, we address seasonal pest activity in your area to provide you with protection all year long. Consisting of four annual treatments, this plan covers:
- Spring, which is breeding season for many different types of pests
- Summer, where higher temperatures means that pest activity is also high
- Fall, where temperatures begin to drop and pests seek a warm place to hide out
- Winter, where pests seek all of the warmth and moisture they can find indoors
Bi-Monthly Maintenance Plan
With our Bi-Monthly Maintenance Plan, pest control services start as low as $75. We take care of any and all of your pest problems just like we do with our Quarterly Maintenance plan, and again pay close attention to hidden and often overlooked areas in order to ensure that your pest problem is entirely taken care of.
Both the Quarterly and Bi-Monthly Maintenance Plans provide services between chargeable treatments, so if you have additional needs in between, just give us a call at any time and we will be right out to take care of the issue at no additional cost to you.
Monthly Maintenance Plan
This service starts as low as $45 per month and is primarily for those who require monthly maintenance such as food-handling establishments and some residential properties that require monthly pest control. Give us a call today if your commercial or residential property is in need of professional pest control services to see how we can accommodate you.
Our One-Time Service includes pest control treatments for spiders, ants, earwigs, wasp nests, termites, and other crawling insects and critters. These services start as low as $135 per session and typically come with a 30-day guarantee. Give us a call today for a free estimate!

Signs of Bed Bugs
Unfortunately, bed bugs can be very hard to find, and many people don’t know what a bed bug looks like. Bed bug bites are also often mistaken for mosquito bites or other insect bites, and some people don’t show any reaction at all to bed bug bites. This can make it easy for bed bugs to go undetected for long periods of time — however, if you know what you are looking for and know the right place to look, you will likely be able to spot bed bugs. While bed bugs are small, adult bed bugs can be seen with the naked eye without any equipment. Be sure to take a close look at:
- The headboard of your bed
- Any bedside tables
- The walls around your bed area
- Any loose wallpaper or paneling
- Wherever you may see a crease or crevice near a bed, including baseboards, mattress seams, and personal belongings
Full-grown bed bugs are approximately the size of an apple seed, are reddish-brown in color, wingless, and have flat bodies (although they do swell up and get round after feeding). After they feed, they turn into a bright red color. As for immature bed bugs, they can be very difficult to spot in their youngest stage. Be sure to keep an eye out for these small creatures and any signs of bed bug bites, which can leave your skin with red welts, cause burning and itching, and may result in a rash in a localized area. If these symptoms persist or worsen, be sure to contact a healthcare provider to ensure there is no infection.
When you work with an experienced technician from High Country Pest Control in Douglas County to treat your bed bugs, we will perform an extensive inspection of your home, including all beds, furniture, and linens. Then, we will safely remove all visible bed bugs and treat the entire area in order to eliminate any hidden bed bugs and eggs. If you think you may have bed bugs and need pest control treatment, give High Country Pest Control in Douglas County a call for a free estimate.
Pest Prevention Tips
Not only are pests a nuisance to have in your home or business, but some of them can also severely impact your health. This is why working with a trusted, professional team of pest control experts is critical in protecting homes, schools, hospitals, and any other places where people spend their time. Some tips to help prevent pests from invading your home and/or business are:
- Seal up any cracks and holes on the outside of your home or business, including entry points for utilities and pipes.
- Be sure to keep basements, attics, and crawl spaces dry and well-ventilated.
- Put garbage away right away, sealing it in a garbage can and disposing of it regularly.
- Store your firewood at least 20 feet away from your home and five inches off of the ground.
- Repair any rotted shingles on your roof as well as the fascia board, as some insects are drawn to deteriorating wood.
- Clear harborage such as debris, leaf litter, etc. away from the building, as pests like to reside in these materials.
- Keep exterior lights off during the night or replace them with bulbs that are not attractive to insects.
- Contact a professional pest control team in Douglas County, like High Country Pest Control. With over 30 years of experience identifying and treating pest problems in homes and businesses throughout the area, we work to make sure that your pest problem is gone for good.
The Dark Side of Pest Invasion
While pests are an annoyance and can easily give anyone those creepy-crawlies as is, they can actually wreak havoc on the health of both your home and your family. Some of the damaging effects that pests can have if left untreated are:
Rats, fleas, cockroaches, and slides are all common carriers of disease, along with many other types of insects and rodents. Insects can transmit Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, salmonella, malaria, and more. Rodents such as bats can carry the plague, hantavirus, and several other serious diseases. Rats often carry diseases like rabies that can be fatal. Not only can these pests carry diseases, but they can also transfer them to your animal companions both inside and outside of your home.
Allergies and Venom
Another common problem with pests is the allergens that they carry into the home. Their feces can also cause allergic reactions, and their skin can pollute indoor air. For example, dust mite dander and droppings are among some of the most common indoor allergens. Other pests can also cause allergic reactions, with some of them being potentially fatal. For example, black widow spiders have a bite that can cause extremely serious health complications and even result in death if left untreated. Other insects such as hornets, wasps, and bees have stingers that can also cause severe — and at times, lethal — allergic reactions to humans.
Damage to Your Home or Business
Another negative impact that pest infestations can have on your home or business is structural damage. If there are any wood structures in or around your home that are not treated for insects, and pests do infiltrate, you will quickly find yourself paying much more money for repairs than you would have for pest control services. Mice and rodents are also known to chew through electrical wires that cause shorts and have the potential to start house fires. Termites are another pest that have the potential to cause your structure serious damage as they find nourishment in cellulose, a material that is found in wood, and can be especially detrimental to homes that are primarily made of wood. If you are having problems with pests in and around your home or business, give the pros a call today at High Country Pest Control in Douglas County for effective, safe, and environmentally friendly pest control services.
If you notice any signs or symptoms of an allergic reaction due to a pest invasion, be sure to contact a healthcare provider right away.
