We Cover ALL THINGS Pest Control.

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.


A lot of people call and ask us if we are really a local company, or if we are a franchise or corporately owned. We are not a big national brand. We are 100% local, and we service Western Colorado and Eastern and Southern Utah. The company was started in Grand Junction, is currently headquartered in Grand Junction and we offer services in Mesa, Delta, Montrose, Gunnison, San Miguel, Ouray, & Hinsdale counties, as well as Moab, and on Colorado’s Front Range.

We offer services in the following cities and surrounding areas: Grand Junction, Fruita, Palisade, Clifton, Whitewater, Delta, Montrose, Hotchkiss, The Mesa, Cedaredge, Paonia, Telluride, Ridgeway, Gunnison, Lake City, Ouray, Moab, Buena Vista, Salida, Castle Rock, Colorado Springs, and in many other places on the front range.


My name is Spencer Christensen. As the owner of Penguin Pest Control, I am dedicated to these ideas.


Penguin is not corporately owned, or a franchise. I personally started the company right here on the western slope. In the beginning it was just me and my brother. I handled sales and marketing and my brother serviced the accounts. We are still locally owned and locally concerned. My goal for the future is to continue a local, family owned business. I’m interested in your home, and my home…OUR home of Colorado!


I am constantly striving to find the best and most cost effective techniques of integrated pest management. Integrated pest management or IPM is an art which needs to be continually honed. That is what I do.


Just like you, I have a family, children and pets. Safety is a deeply held value. I am absolutely dedicated to using safe products, in a safe manner. I 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 my 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.

The Penguin Guarantee

It’s really simple. If you sign up for one of our pest solutions, we guarantee results and we will do whatever it takes to ensure you are happy. That is one of the major benefits of choosing a local company like Penguin Pest Control. We care.

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.

We couldn’t be happier with the service provided. Haven’t had pest problems since starting the service.

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.
