Flying Insects

In Kelowna, Vernon, Penticton, and the rest of the Okanagan, flying pests have become a huge nuisance, as well as a health risk. At BugMaster, our technicians are trained to deal with all types of flying insects, as well as mitigate the risks of these insects to you and your family. Various flies, box elder beetles (maple bugs) and wasps seem to cause the most headaches for homeowners in the Valley. If you have another flying insect problem, please check the list below or give us a call and we would be happy to help you out with whatever you are experiencing.

Live Trapping

The ethical approach is the only approach as far as BugMaster is concerned. That is why we offer a wide variety of trapping options for various species found throughout the Okanagan. Our most common trappable creatures are squirrels and packrats, but check the list below for help with anything else you may be experiencing.

Ground Animals:

  • Squirrels
  • Raccoons
  • Packrats
  • Gophers
  • Groundhogs

Birds (exclusion and clean up):

  • Starlings
  • Pigeons
  • Woodpeckers
  • Flickers
  • Bats (not really a bird!) (Huge unsanitary messes in attics)

Rodents

Rodents, like mice and rats, are a big problem in any city center. This includes our hometowns of Kelowna, Vernon, Penticton etc. To ensure your home doesn’t get overrun by these varmints, BugMaster offers an inclusive baiting and monitoring system. This system allows us to monitor your bait stations periodically, as opposed to daily when traditional spring trap methods are used. For larger infestations, a combination of spring traps and bait stations may be used. Either method will work on the following rodents:

  • Field Mice
  • House Mice
  • Deer Mice (possible Hanta Virus carriers)
  • Roof Rats
  • Norway Rats
  • Sewer Rats
