Better Pest Control in Des Moines

With about 215,000 Iowans calling Des Moines home, it is the most populous city in the state. Des Moines' economy is largely supported by the insurance industry, as well as financial and publishing companies. The state's capital and an essential location for national politics, Des Moines is much more than business and government.

The name "Des Moines" is an adaptation of the early French name meaning "River of the Monks." The exact origins of this are unknown, but archeological evidence shows humans have inhabited this area for at least 7,000 years. A military fort was erected in 1843, and was essential in the U.S. government gaining control of the region. Once the fort was abandoned and settlers arrived, Des Moines was incorporated in 1851. Des Moines relied on mining throughout the 19th century, and turned to government and business throughout the 20th century.

The "City Beautiful" project arrived at the turn of the 20th century, and brought many community structures, some of which remain today. The Civic Center Historic District is flanked by some of these buildings. The post office, originally built in 1871, is one such structure. As is the Public Library of Des Moines and City Hall. In addition to historical architecture, there's a great deal of art to take in as well. The Des Moines Performing Arts frequently hosts Broadway shows, and is accompanied by a professional ballet, opera, and symphony. For current chart-topping performers, Wells Fargo Arena is the place to be. In the warmer months, live music and free concerts are hosted at the Simon Estes Riverfront Amphitheater.

The warm months also bring festivals to Des Moines. The Iowa State Fair gathers one million people together each August, and the World Food & Music Festival arrives every September. The city also hosts an arts festival, jazz event, and countless parades. On Saturdays, downtown converts into a farmers' market that is ranked as one of the best in the country. Downtown Des Moines is considered very walkable, and is studded with sculptures, sleek architecture, stores, and cafes.

Downtown is at the heart of Des Moines' food and entertainment scene. For a nice dinner out, reserve a table at 801 Chophouse, or for casual drinks with friends, grab a seat at 1908 Drafthouse. Des Moines also boasts great sushi, Vietnamese food, Italian dishes, and just about anything else you can imagine. Sit down for a relaxed meal, or grab something to go for a picnic in one of the city's 76 parks.

Des Moines has 45 miles of trails, as well as three golf courses, three aquatic centers, and several community centers. The Principal Riverwalk is one of the city's newest outdoor features, connecting the east and west sides of downtown. This is also where you can ice skate in the winter. And for water access, Gray's Lake Park invites you to rent a boat, go fishing, or jump in the water.

But just as much as you love your city, cockroaches, termites, and ants love it, too. Instead of trudging to the store and buying products you hope might work, leave the pest issues to the pros. LawnStarter is the area's premier provider of indoor and outdoor pest control services. All you have to do is download the simple LawnStarter app, enter your ZIP, set your preferences, and leave the rest to us. LawnStarter will match you with the best professional for your job, so you can get back to enjoying Des Moines.
