Pest Control in Magna

Originally named “Pleasant Green” by Mormon settlers in the 1850s, Magna officially changed its name in 1906 to avoid confusion with the existing Pleasant Grove. The original copper mining operation of the township had been named “Magna Mill” from the Latin meaning “great” so it seemed an appropriate choice to adopt. Adjacent to the Great Salt Lake, Magna also has wonderful views of the Oquirrh mountain range and residents enjoy the sense of community the township fosters. With such proximity to the lake and mountains, though, come problems with pests of all varieties. Mosquitoes, wasps, ants and rodents are especially prevalent in Magna, UT and H2 Pest Control is dedicated to helping you maintain a pest-free home.
