Sprague Solutions

Name your pest and we've got the right solution to eliminate, eradicate, exterminate it. In many cases, a customized combination of solutions works best to stop pests in their tracks.

BAITING

Baits eliminate insect activity and reduce rodent pressure. Non-toxic baits can help us monitor rodent activity and be useful in sensitive situations.

BIOLOGICAL CONTROL

We often use biological growth regulators to prevent populations from multiplying. In special situations, parasitic wasps may be used to prey on problematic insects.

BIOSOLUTIONS

Beneficial, naturally occurring bacteria can digest organic debris in drains, equipment, tile floors, beverage dispenser lines. This is a greener solution to kitchen sanitation that Sprague is proud to offer.

CANINE INSPECTIONS

Our trained, certified bed bug dogs will sniff out bed bugs quickly and discretely. Then we'll follow up with a visual inspection by an expertly trained technician. One-time-only and ongoing inspection services are available in select markets.

EXCLUSION

This one sounds like a no-brainer, but trust the experts to do it right. Let us seal, screen, net and caulk potential pest entry points to keep them out of your place of business.

EXPERT CONSULTATION

Having an expert opinion is critical when food safety, money, customers and your reputation is on the line. For pest prevention across a wide range of industries, Sprague's got it covered.

FUMIGATION

When it comes to fumigation, experience matters. Trust Sprague for railcar, container, warehouse, processing, flour mill, seed and grain storage fumigation services. We can fumigate on our site, or yours. And we'll do it right, to minimize its impact on the environment.

FUMIGATION ALTERNATIVES

Did you know you can reduce your reliance on gas fumigants and achieve equal or better results? Mass trapping, mating disruption and heat treatments all deliver good results without the environmental impact of traditional fumigations. A special combination of carbon dioxide, heat and phosphine can dramatically reduce the amount of gas required to deliver an effective treatment. Ask us about your options.

HEAT TREATMENT

For some pests, we use industrial heaters to raise insects' body temperatures until they reach their thermal deathpoint. This method can be very effective in solving your insect issue without the use of chemicals.

INSECTICIDES

Combined with longer-lasting prevention techniques, targeted insecticide treatments provide immediate relief for a wide range of ants, cockroaches, flies, spiders, stored food pests and wood destroying organisms.

INSECT LIGHT TRAPS

ILTs are an efficient, non-chemical means to control adult flies. Providing 24-hour protection, they capture flies and prevent contamination of otherwise safe food and environments. Regular cleaning, glue board and annual lamp replacement ensure optimal year-round performance.

LIGHT REPAIR

Sometimes, a minor repair is all it takes prevent a pest infestation. Make sure it's done right by calling the Sprague team to correctly seal, screen or caulk potential pest entry points to keep them out of your business.

MATING DISRUPTION

Prevent seasonal spikes in moth activity with this intensive pheromone trapping service. Aggressive lure placement and monitoring reduces the need for pesticides and diminishes stored product moth populations. Ideal for seed production, shell nut growers, grain storage, raw agricultural commodities and certified organic operations.

PEST PREVENTION

Sometimes it's as simple as eliminating food, water or shelter to prevent pest activity. Sprague has a detailed understanding of pest biology, experience and creativity, so trust our team to work with you to stop pests before they jeopardize health, safety and property.

PHEROMONE MONITORING

This is an excellent way to monitor for stored product pests. Our experts study trapped insects for early signs that a new pest has been introduced, and where in the facility they've been spotted. We'll then analyze and observe trends to anticipate and prevent seasonal increases and measure treatment effectiveness.

PRE-AUDIT INSPECTION

Have an audit coming up? What should you do? Are you sure you're ready? Our experts will evaluate your situation, develop an action plan and verify your compliance. Make pest control the one part of the audit you don't have to worry about.

PRODUCTS

At Sprague, we pride ourselves on offering the very best, proven choices available on today's market. We're not a manufacturer or product-focused company, so count on us to recommend only the most effective, efficient and field-proven insect light traps, fly traps and other pest control products.

REPELLENTS

Applying repellent deters rodents and spiders from traveling over treated areas. Bird repellents disperse loitering flocks and keep birds from establishing roosting sites on building ledges. Repellents keep pests out and can be reapplied as needed to maintain efficacy.

TRAPPING

Trapping is a highly effective method for getting rid of rodents and insects. With a keen understanding of pest behavior and biology, our Sprague specialists rely on an arsenal of traps to monitor or eliminate pest activity.

ULV TREATMENTS

This option allows for the use of non-residual insecticides by means of a ULV generator. Sometimes called “fogging”, the treatment is effective on exposed insects. Insect growth regulators are often applied in this manner.

WEB REMOVAL

Using brushes, brooms and vacuums, Sprague specialists will remove webs and spiders that might be lurking inside or on the exterior of your building.
