Rapid Pest Solutions originally began as Heat Pest Control, a company specializing in bed bug extermination using thermal remediation. After a few years, owners Chick and Tony Hanas, identified the needs of their clients to eliminate a wider range of pests. They listened as their customers talked about ants, mice and other creepy crawlies. Heat Pest was able to begin putting together a team that would eventually become Rapid Pest Solutions. Choosing professionals with experience and success in the pest control industry, they ended up with a highly trained staff that seeks to have long lasting relationships with their customers and prides themselves on their level of customer satisfaction. And that is how Rapid Pest Solutions was born.

Rapid Pest Solutions is a full service pest control company. We still provide bed bug extermination but we have added to our arsenal. Treating pests in both residential and commercial settings, our specialties now include: rodents, roaches, ants, bed bugs and a host of other problem pests. As a family owned company that is located in our hometown, we are able to treat our customers to exceptional service.
