Chris Frederick and his Pest Detective team can’t cure the coronavirus, but they can take care of all the Okanagan’s pests — ranging from ants and spiders to rodents and wildlife to dreaded bed bugs.
With local technicians serving the entire valley — from Vernon in the north to Osoyoos in the south and everywhere in between, including Kelowna and Penticton — Pest Detective is well equipped to control any critters and rid unwanted guests.
“We are taking a lot of calls and one thing we’ve learned, throughout COVID, is people do not want to live with pests — and now that they have been home even more, they want less pests around,” said Frederick, the president and franchise owner for Pest Detective, which expanded to the Okanagan five years ago but has been established in the Lower Mainland for nearly 30 years.
“We are defenders of everyone’s home and business environments and their health,” he added. “Many pests, including rodents, move viruses around and they spread bacteria. We help control that and eliminate the spread of certain bacteria and diseases. So it really does tie in with COVID in a lot of ways.”
Pest control has been deemed an essential service and Pest Detective’s technicians — around 30 in total, including experienced experts based in Kelowna, Peachland and Oliver — have been staying relatively busy during this ongoing pandemic. And the growing demand has Frederick optimistic about their operations in the Okanagan — believing the future should be bright for the local crew, headed up by Osh Doorn.
