The Tools and Experience to Get the Job Done


Our technicians utilize all the latest techniques in pest control to identify and manage your pest problem, including the use of infrared thermal technology to reduce or even eliminate the need for using pesticides.

We are very proud to announce that we have also achieved QualityPro certification by the National Pest Management Association, which is the mark of excellence in pest management. This certification establishes the highest standards within the pest control industry to ensure that the service we provide to you is second to none.

Environmentally Conscious Pest Management

Our knowledgeable team of IPM field technicians can handle all of your pest control needs. We will apply our personal attention to every project because we understand the importance of safety, efficiency and integrity. We will use the best Integrated Pest Management practices in the industry and the safest, most effective methods to eliminate your problem. Though we do use pesticides, we also utilize more sustainable and humane practices to spare wildlife and certain types of insects beneficial to the environment. We will attempt bait and trap methods where appropriate. If baiting and trapping proves impossible, we will follow traditional pest management methods at your request.
If you’re looking for a safe and reliable local pest control company, Cranbrook Pest Control is the right choice! Pest control can be tricky and sometimes daunting when dealing with a serious infestation. Let Cranbrook Pest Control help you take care of your problem.
QualityPro is an initiative designed to increase professionalism in the pest management industry. This dynamic program certifies companies based on comprehensive standards. Known as “the mark of excellence in pest control”, the QualityPro designation can be achieved by ensuring that all employees voluntarily ascribe to a set of standards far above what is required by provincial regulations.
Reserved exclusively for member companies of the National Pest Management Association, QualityPro companies are a distinguished group that continue to act as leaders and pioneers to better serve consumers across the country. Therefore, it is with great pride that we recommend you look for the QualityPro logo the next time you select a professional to eliminate your pest problems. Here are some examples of QualityPro standards that must be met before a company can achieve this exclusive designation:
  • All employees must undergo a comprehensive background check before ever showing up to service your account.
  • Companies must have a drug-free workplace policy that not only prohibits illegal drugs, but also requires employees to notify management if they are using prescribed medication that may impair their judgment, driving ability, performance or behaviour.
  • Motor vehicle record checks must be conducted on all employees that drive a company vehicle or a personal vehicle for the company.
  • Each employee that shows up to your residence or business is required to adhere to a strict uniform dress code and service vehicle maintenance and appearance policy. (We want to make a great first impression—no leaking oil on your driveway or dirty boots on your carpet!)
  • QualityPro ensures that companies must provide you with a warranty/service agreement that clearly outlines the scope of service in BOLD type on the first page of the contract.
  • Clear communication practices must be followed, including procedures for contacting the customer to schedule the inspection and notification.
  • Sales and service technicians must first meet testing minimums before they are eligible to work on your account. QualityPro feels that testing and training are among the most important aspects of any service industry.
  • The QualityPro program also contains an environmental stewardship aspect that requires companies to offer Integrated Pest Management services (IPM) to its customers. If you would like more information on what “IPM” means, just ask your service provider.
  • Advertising practices are put in place to ensure that companies don’t make false claims when soliciting your business. No images, words or misleading terminology!
  • All companies that enroll in the QualityPro program must have insurance minimums in place for workers comp, general liability and vehicles.
In addition, QualityPro strives to ensure that all companies in the program are meeting these criteria through continually conducting random audits on all program members.
Cranbrook Pest Control is proud to adhere to the high standards QualityPro has set, and we look forward to proving it to you!

Randy Tremblay – IPM Field Technician

My wife and I recently relocated to the East Kootenays from the lower mainland in search of a different lifestyle. As an avid wildlife photographer and backcountry enthusiast this region provides me with an entirely new area to explore. I come to the pest control field after a 25 year career in the military, followed by some management work and a stint in the RV repair field which gives me a solid knowledge of how insects and rodents can damage your RV. I also have considerable home repair experience and I understand how different pests can enter and affect your home. I service Cranbrook to Creston, Kimberley and north to Wasa.
