About Us

Trusted by Thousands of Colorado Homes & Businesses since 1965 

EnviroPest first started out as “Doty’s Pest Control” in 1965, serving the Fort Collins, Colorado area with personable and professional service. In 1989, Richard Dykstra and Linda Heigold purchased the company and changed the name to “Tri-City Pest Control” to reflect their more regional coverage. The same family-owned, personal touch remained.

Years later, Richard and Linda looked at the company and came to two major conclusions: One, this was now a Colorado pest control company with clients up and down the Front Range; and two, he wanted a name to reflect the company’s efforts to treat pest control in the most environmentally safe methods possible. In 2001, the name was changed to EnviroPest.

It was also important to Richard and Linda for EnviroPest to remain family-owned. In 2005, his son, Marc Dykstra, assumed the role of President. Equipped with an extensive background in computers and IT, Marc has helped EnviroPest blaze the trail for new technology for pest control companies across the country. EnviroPest was one of the first pest control companies in the United States to go paperless proving that there was more ‘green’ in the company than just the logo. The hand-held technology EnviroPest uses is considered one of the most efficient and productive tools in the industry.

But in the end, for Marc and all the EnviroPest employees, it still remains to be about one thing – people. “It’s always been more about people than profit,” says Richard. “Anyone can kill an ant; we just want to hire good people to work with good people.” We at EnviroPest believe that we exist to serve our community, customers and co-workers. Supporting local business and charities are an important part of our business. We make every effort to make business decisions that directly impact our local economy, not just find the lowest price.
