Shelley, ID Pest Control

Located just 10 miles south of Idaho Falls, Shelley, Idaho offers residents an idyllic setting in which to raise their families. The town is situated in an agricultural plain, and the Snake River is a short distance away. Along with people, a variety of different types of pests may be found in the town. It is important for residents to do what they can to keep the pests out of their homes. Here are three of the most common pests that pose problems for Shelley residents.

Bed Bugs

Tiny and difficult to see, bed bugs are often first noticed by people when they develop irritating and itchy rashes from bites. Nymphs are tiny and either white-yellow or translucent, and they are very difficult to see unless they have recently fed. Adults may be about the size of an apple seed and are brown with oblong bodies. Bed bugs spread very easily because they may hide in the seams of luggage or in clothing, traveling to new places along with their hosts. When they are not feeding, they hide. If you have a bed bug infestation, you will likely need to get professional help as these bugs are very hard to control and eliminate.


Ants are one of the most common types of pests that invade homes in Shelley, Idaho. Attracted to food sources, ants can enter homes through tiny crevices or cracks. They leave scent trails behind for other ants to follow. It is nearly impossible to keep your counters and other surfaces completely free of food sources that attract ants. Instead, you'll want to treat your home's interior while also locating the ant hills that are outside. Our pest control technicians can help to identify the type of ant that is infesting your home, locate the colony and use the appropriate treatments to rid your home of ants.


While spiders offer benefits by feeding on insects, they are seldom welcome guests when they invade homes. Two species of spiders that are found in Shelley are also poisonous, including black widow spiders and brown recluse spiders. People who are bitten by either of these spiders will likely need medical treatment. Invasions of non-poisonous spiders are also unwelcome. People normally do not like the webs that spiders build or seeing them scurrying about. If you have a spider problem, you will want to eliminate the population that has taken up residence in your home. You will also want to consider ongoing preventative care to keep spiders and other pests from coming back.
