In light of ongoing news surrounding Coronavirus (COVID-19), we want to assure you that all of us here at Penguin are taking precautionary steps to protect our customers, communities and our team members. We are monitoring reports from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).

In our line of work, we don’t have a lot of contact with our customers. Most of our customers are not home when we provide service and more than 95% of customers get digital invoices sent via email.

However even with our very limited contact, we are taking 3 prominent steps to ensure we do not transmit COVID-19.

  1. Our technicians use disposable gloves.
  2. Our technicians will begin wearing disposable face masks starting monday.
  3. We are limiting physical contact such as the practice of hand shaking.

Through this issue, Penguin Pest Control will continue servicing our community by treating and keeping our homes & businesses pest free. Pest control is considered an essential, core function in society; no one wants a pest infestation on top of COVID-19; not to mention the fact that lack of pest control and sanitation can create and transmit pathogens and diseases. Sanitation and pest control are essential components if a society wants to be healthy and disease free. We encourage you to continue your treatment plan, and hope you feel confident we are doing everything to ensure the health of our employees and our customers.

We hope you, your friends, family and community stay healthy. Thank you for trusting us with your pest control needs, Your Penguin Pest Control Team


Family Owned and Operated!

Penguin is not corporately owned, or a franchise. The company was started right here in the West, in Grand Junction, Colorado. In the beginning it was just the owner and his brother. Spencer handled sales and marketing and his brother serviced the accounts. We are still locally owned and locally concerned. Our goal for the future is to continue a local, family operated culture. We our operating in various parts of Colorado and want to serve you in Fort Collins too. We are interested in your home–OUR home!

We service Colorado, Wyoming, and Eastern Utah. The company is currently headquartered in Grand Junction; we offer services in Mesa, Delta, Montrose, Gunnison, San Miguel, Ouray, & Hinsdale counties, as well as Moab, Cheyenne and Colorado’s Front Range.


We treat for pretty much every kind of pest. Insects. Arachnids. Mice. Rodents. Termites. Bed Bugs. Bats. Birds. If it’s pest control, we are going to be your best, most professional source.


My name is Spencer Christensen. Above is a picture of me and my family taken at the time when we first started Penguin. At that time the name of the company was SNAP. We later joined forces with a local company called Mountain Pest Control and I decided to change the name of the company from SNAP to Penguin Pest Control.


Honest Pest Control

Honesty is a core value in Penguin Pest Control. Honesty is more important to our company than profit, sales, or growth. We strive to be honest in EVERY aspect of our business. One good example of this is when we perform inspections. Any professional who performs an inspection, and then offers a curative services for problems revealed, may be tempted to be less than truthful about problems, or to exaggerate problems in order to secure a sale. WE. WILL. NOT. In every aspect of our conduct we will be honest and forthcoming. We rigorously emphasize the value of honesty to our staff. Honesty is not only a core focus in our pest control service, it is a core value–which means that we hire and fire based on this value. If any technician or staff member exhibits honesty issues, they will not be allowed to continue employment with Penguin Pest Control.

Effective Pest Control

We are constantly striving to find the best and most cost effective techniques of integrated pest management. Integrated pest management (IPM) is an art which needs to be continually honed. That is what we do. A good example of this is when elm seed beetles first hit our headquarter city of Grand Junction. Elm seed beetles are not native to North America, and when they first showed up, infestations broke out in droves. It took many companies by surprise. Penguin Pest Control was one of, if not, the very first company here, to learn how to effectively control these infestations. Long after other companies were turning down customers, or trying to figure out how to treat these bugs, Penguin was helping customers effectively control infestations.

Safe Pest Control

Just like you, we have a families, children and pets. Safety is a deeply held value. We are absolutely dedicated to using safe products, in a safe manner. We focus on training every technician to follow the safest practices. We always use the most environmentally responsible products which can effectively control any given pest.

…And it’s our goal to just be easy going, and pleasant to work with.

What Services do we Provide?

General Pest Control

We offer a low cost pest control service, which works great for most household pests like spiders, scorpions, ants, mice, crickets, earwigs, box elder bugs, flies, fruit flies, wasps, hornets, mites, and rats. Typically a monthly or quarterly service is sufficient for household pests.

Bed Bug Mitigation

We offer quick and effective bed bug control services. The best on the western slope.

Commercial Pest Control

If you have a restaurant you can NOT have pests; especially things like flies, roaches, and mice. YUCK!!! We can make sure those kinds of pests don’t hang around your place. If you have an office, store, or warehouse, we can help your business stay pest free.


We offer pest control services for birds, bats, snakes, rabbits and many other bigger pests.

Termite Control

We have had some weak winters in the last several years. This is causing the termite population to rise in the valleys. Especially in Grand Junction, Delta and Montrose. We offer effective termite treatment for both dry wood and subterranean termites. We provide termite inspections, including real estate inspections and construction pre-treatments.

In the 21st Century There is no Reason to Live With Bugs.

Through the development of the human race, pests have long afflicted our ancestors. Mice and rats carried deadly diseases, bed bugs infested homes, and the food was contaminated by weevils. Now in the 21st century, we are fortunate to have the solutions, the products, and the understanding to control virtually every pest known to man.

In the 21st century, (in-laws aside) there is really no reason to live with pests! It’s your home and you don’t need to share it with bugs, or mice or any other kind of pest.

Call Penguin for a pest solution just for you. We offer the best pest control Grand Junction has to offer.

I called Colorado Extension and from other resources heard that there was nothing which could be done for Box Elder or Elm Seed Bugs. In fact on the news they ran a story telling people to just sweep them up and put them back outside and live with the problem. Live with the problem? Really!? I am not OK with sharing my home with thousands of bugs. Then I called Penguin. The staff was very friendly and the treatment has really helped the problem. I was inundated with those bugs before, but Penguin's treatment has really set them back.

As an early customer of Penguin I have been impressed with the friendliness, timeliness, and eagerness to please customers of this company. I have referred Penguin to many new residents in my neighborhood sharing how responsive the service is and also how educational they are. When I have noticed a bug problem and called, the reaction time has always been rapid and appropriate. All-in-all I cannot think of anything but overwhelming positive remarks to state about this company. Kudos every day and to all involved.
