This is my second home using Western Exterminator. I've been a customer for over 20 years. My service is every other month on the exterior - front and back yard. I have had the interior done maybe 3 times! Occasionally I've had a little ant problem in the backyard but it's always due to the weather. They have always taken care of any issues, even if it's between my normal service! They've come out at no extra charge. Very reliable company, very good employees!

The same exterminator came by that I have worked with in the past. He was very nice. He checked an additional area in the house to make sore out wasn't new damage, it wasn't. He was very professional and pleasant.

We had a personable efficient tech today. But the previous 3 appts were cancelled causing us to question continuing with this company. We’ll see what happens with the next appt.

We use Truly Nolan for our business in Otay San Diego. Their customer service is wonderful. Our technician Gary Garcia is the best we’ve ever had, always thorough and pleasant and gives in person updates and recommendations for our property.

We have had Truly Nolen for a couple years now and we are happy customers. Our technician is Jose Gomez and has been for a while now. He is very respectful and knowledgeable. Anytime I present a pest issue he not only addresses it but also takes the time to explain why I may be having that issue. There has been a couple times I have had them come back out to re- spray and have never had a problem with them coming out. I would highly recommend Jose to all my neighbors and friends.

Gerald is the most knowledgeable rodent control inspector I've encountered. He checked entry points where no other inspectors were aware of. He and Anthony were very courteous, patient, and helpful as well. We are highly satisfied with their service!

Everyone was very nice. Three men came to do the work. They worked fast I was told the job would take 4 to 5 hrs. It took them about 3 hours. The termite was back in the evening but I had been told that it might happen and to call if it were happening after 2 weeks.

Fast and friendly service. Michael is always extremely professional, nice, and he does a thorough job. I had a really bad flea infestation from the dozens of feral cats in my neighborhood. I don't even own any pets! The fleas got inside my house and all it took was one call to Orkin to eliminate them. The fleas came back but after a second treatment, they were finally gone. It's also very nice not to have spiders and spider webs around the entrances to my house. I am also very happy at how affordable Orkin really was! I wasted so much time and money trying to get rid of the fleas myself because I thought that Orkin might be too expensive. But it wasn't. I should have called them a long time ago. If you have a flea problem or any other issues with pets or rodents, they check for those too and treat them, don't hesitate to give Orkin a call! They always give you advance notice when your appointment is about to happen and they call you the day before to let you know that they'll be coming out and also the time. They are so good at following up! I highly recommend them!

Nate is the perfection of great customer service. He always gives me choices on the work that needs to be done and never over sales services. I feel he has my best interest at heart and understands my financial situation. I know when I see him the work will done correctly and as efficiently as possible. Nate keep up the good work.

Mr. Daniel Mendez arrived within the designated timeframe. He was pleasant and attentive. A good listener. He presented himself as though he enjoyed his work, rather than the employee who simply shows up because he “must” when in reality that person just wants the money and to do as little as possible to obtain such. I hope you stick around Daniel. I look forward to dealing with you again!

Jordan has provided the most complete service since I’ve been a client. He even sprayed on my deck, which no one else has done. If these are new directions to the techs, hooray. If not, he did the best service. Thanks for putting him on my route.

Sue B.via Google

I would like to thank Jeff for doing a great job today. In fact, I would like to request him in the future. Y’all were supposed to provide service a couple of weeks ago, and your guy showed up without the equipment to service the inside of my house. To be honest, I almost called you to cancel my service then. Instead I rescheduled. Today Jeff did exactly what I signed up for, but too often you don’t provide. He sprayed indoors and out, swept my eaves for spider webs and took care of a couple of wasp nests. He did a great job. Thank you very much.

Rick T.via Google

Very polite and wearing a mask (I appreciate that). Introduced himself and asked if any particular place was heavy with mosquitoes, I told him I work in my garage with the door open and he made sure to get that side of the house thoroughly.

Common Pest Problems

Pests are an inevitable nuisance for many residents in California. From the coastal regions to the inland valleys, the state's diverse ecosystem harbors a wide range of pests that can invade homes and disrupt daily life. One common issue faced by residents is the presence of ants, specifically Argentine ants, which can quickly overrun a property and become a persistent problem. These tiny invaders are attracted to food sources and can infiltrate kitchens, pantries, and even electrical systems.

Another pest that Californians frequently encounter is the notorious bed bug. These nocturnal parasites can be found in homes, hotels, and even public transportation. Their bites can result in itchy, red welts, and their ability to hide in crevices makes them difficult to eradicate without professional assistance. Additionally, rodents such as rats and mice are prevalent in both urban and rural areas, causing damage to property and posing health risks through the spread of diseases.

To combat these pests and ensure a pest-free environment, residents of California can rely on professional pest control services. These experts have a deep understanding of the local pest population and utilize effective and environmentally friendly methods to eliminate infestations. By employing preventive measures, such as sealing entry points, removing food sources, and implementing targeted treatments, pest control services can help residents reclaim their homes from these unwanted invaders. With their expertise, residents can enjoy peace of mind, knowing that their property is protected from the pests that plague the Golden State.

California Pest Control Experts is a local company with extensive knowledge and experience in pest control services throughout the state of California. With their team of skilled technicians, they offer professional solutions to ensure a pest-free environment for residential and commercial properties. It is crucial to prioritize pest control service throughout the year to prevent infestations and maintain the well-being of your property. Here's a breakdown of the importance of pest control service in California:

  • January-March: During the colder months, pests seek shelter indoors, making it essential to address potential entry points and take preventive measures against rodents, spiders, and ants.
  • April-June: As temperatures rise, termites become a significant concern. Regular inspections and treatments can help detect and eliminate these destructive pests before they cause extensive damage.
  • July-September: Summertime brings an increase in mosquitoes, fleas, and ticks. Pest control services can effectively manage these pests, protecting you and your family from irritating bites and potential diseases.
  • October-December: With the arrival of autumn, rodents and wildlife may seek refuge in homes to escape the cooler weather. Sealing potential entry points and implementing pest control measures will help keep them at bay.
  • Maintaining a year-round pest control service in California is paramount to safeguarding your property and ensuring a healthy living environment for you and your loved ones. Don't let pests take over; rely on the expertise of California Pest Control Experts to keep your home pest-free.
