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!

Travis always provides excellent customer service. He listens to my concerns and answers my questions. He’s always on time. I appreciate and trust Travis

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.

Dina and her trainee were ontime and eager to start my annual inspection for drywood termites. She carefully went over all the items to look for with her trainee and let him do the inspection with her guidance. They were very thorough and scheduled a return for a follow up inspection.

Truly Nolen has been servicing our business for many years. Our tech Gary Garcia has been helpful and does a fantastic job taking care of our property. He always responds when we call him for anything.

Diana E. via google

We got Truly Nolen when we had an ant and spider problem and they came out promptly and took care of everything! They do a very thorough initial inspection as well. Our technician Henry Leichner is always on time and does a complete spray. He notifies us if there are any additional issues and is professional. He accommodates us with spray dates and times so we can make sure we are available. Was very easy to set up ongoing service.

William F. via google

Since partnering with Truly Nolen our company hasn't been in better hands in being pest-free. Even more appreciative of our tech Gary Garcia, he has outstanding customer service. Gary always provides us with regular maintenance. We can always count on Gary to respond promptly and attend to our needs. We can't praise Gary enough for his evident hard work and dedication to his profession.

Very knowledgeable, and broke down every detail to what he was using on his visit and exactly what it was going to do and the out come I could expect when he left. Best experience ever and so far best choice we made. He also kept me up to date when he was on his way over as well which was very nice since it was our first visit most places just show up do their thing and leave.

No one wants to need pest control, but I was very pleased with the level of service I received from Orkin and specifically the technician who came to home Aaron O. Aaron called me before my appointment to assess the issue I was experiencing and ensuring that I received the appropriate level of treatment for my home to both treat for fleas and make sure they don’t come back. Aaron walked me through the treatment process and after treatment action I would need to take. I am pleased with the level of service I received and will use Orkin for future preventative measures as well thanks to Aaron.

Veronica L. via google

The Orkin employee assured us that the treatment would be effective. However, he did not want to go into our crawl space under the house to apply the treatment. We are still seeing ants, but to a somewhat lesser degree, so giving it time to work. Personally, I believe the ants are coming from under the house and it is difficult to treat the area near the back of the house because of our decking…would have felt more confident if crawl space would have been treated.

Ed S. via google

We always receive wonderful service! My technicians always listen to and address my concerns! I am so grateful for Orkin! Thank you to my newest Tech, Anthony!! Showers of BLESSING!

Ms B. via google

Great customer experience each visit! Steven checks in and inquired if we have any concerns we’ve noticed since the last visit and addresses them, if any. He clearly communicates the actions he will be taking and checks back in before he leaves with any issues he sees. I am extremely satisfied with the service Orkin/Steven provides!

The service rep does a great job. Asks as soon as he gets there if I had any concerns or something he needs to look into. He is knowledgeable and answers all questions. Does his job efficiently and in a positive manner. Also be fore he leaves he asks is there anything else or I may have forgotten to ask or mention. Soo very professional and caring. ?

Edelmira H. via google

This guy Andrew was so professional kind and did an amazing job. You need more employees like him. Thank you Andrew! Good job!

Tina G. via google

Great communication about each appointment and the treatments last each quarter without seeing any insects inside. When it’s raining the technician knows to use a different method instead of a spray to ensure we’re still protected.

Fabi C. via google

The communication was great so we knew when to expect the service to take place. The technician was thorough and likewise communicated clearly and in a detailed manner as to what to expect. He even gave a follow up call offering to come by and check on things. The rate is 1/2 of what we were paying with another provider who would show up unannounced. All in all we are VERY pleased!

Claudia P. D. via google

Tom from Terminix is friendly, professional and thorough when he is at my office. He is amenable to prescheduling service due to business hours and needing to gain access to locked gates. He always checks to ensure we are not experiencing any pest issues between visits.

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.

I very much appreciate the technician's willingness to access my garage by entering the code supplied by our text message exchanges. The text message with the tech is THE most important feature. The tech had been to my home before and I felt safe and secure knowing that. Give him my thanks, please. Definitely 5-star proactive customer service and communications with the technician.

Service is amazing they are on time fast and always ready, quality and value and customer service and literally everything is amazing my experience till...

The technician Frankie that came out today was terrific. He thoroughly cleaned the spider webs and sprayed all areas. Frankie tried to accommodate the fact Aptive Environmental had not yet provided any mosquito traps since I signed up for service and unfortunately he was out as well. Frankie gets 5 stars but Aptive only 4.

Miki B. via google

I am so happy with Aptive's service. We had a serious problem with Brown Widow spiders since we moved in here. Small problems with crickets and pincher bugs as well. But since we have been using Aptive for our pest control I can finally walk around my backyard at night in the summer without seeing spiders or walking through webs! The techs are amazing too, service is usually done while we are at work and they are awesome about sending updates, notifications and pics of their service. Especially thorough has been Frankie who has serviced our house a couple of times now. Pics are great from him too!

Erica C. via google

I highly recommend Zach from Aptive pest control ! He does a fantastic job every month spraying my yard. Since I started using his services, I've noticed a significant decrease in pests around my home. He's reliable, thorough, and always goes the extra mile to ensure the job is done right. I couldn't be happier with the results!

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.

Year Round Pest Control in California

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.
