Top Pests in the Minneapolis Area

Minneapolis residents understand the need for home spider control as well as exterior spider control. Spiders are a year round concern in the Minneapolis area. Aptive quarterly outdoor treatments are able to control and eliminate spider infestations so they don’t advance to your home interior. Aptive Environmental customers love that we will go above and beyond insect control on the ground by sweeping spider webs around the upper eaves of the home. Wasp nest removal is vital here and is also included as part of our residential service.

What Other Pest Problems Can Aptive Solve?

Our home insect pest control services keep your home protected from ants, spiders, cockroaches and your everyday wasps! Our ground perimeter attack will eliminate insects and pests that tend to enter the home that way and our eve inspections and services will terminate higher entry point infestations. We are experts in an environmental approach and thus know local insect and pest ecosystems. Did you know that wasps will often depend on live cockroaches to protect their larvae? Knowing this, cockroach control is thus pertinent in keeping wasp colonies at a minimum. Aptive Environmental is the best solution to your pest problem.

Awesome service... today our tech named Austin Swanson came out and found a huge wasp nest on our bush by our porch! We had no idea it was even there, hidden in our bush, the size of someone’s head! Great work checking around our yard for us Austin!

This is the first time that we have used a company to rid pests. We called Aptive and they gave us a great rate on their annual program that was way better than the other guys. Matt Neblett came out yesterday, did everything that he needed to outside, including brushing off all the cob webs etc. He was very nice, and explained the process and answered the questions that we had. I would definitely recommend Matt and Aptive!
