Pest Control and Integrated Pest Management Providers
For more than 30 years, Pestec has been providing pest control services to commercial, residential and municipal clients in the San Francisco Bay Area and Northern California. We achieve this by using an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) approach. IPM is a long-term pest prevention strategy that is guided by the principles of risk reduction, communication, ongoing monitoring and evaluation for continual improvement.
This [is] to commend Pestec for the excellent service [they] recently provided. [Their] outstanding coordinating efforts in meeting our tight time frame made this project run on schedule and I might add under budget. Further, I want to recognize the exemplary customer service provided by [their] technicians. Their ability to go the extra mile as well as their attention to details is what customer service is all about. It was a pleasure to work [with them] on this project and I look forward to our continued relationship.

(Fortunately), not having had to deal with a rodent problem previously, I had Pestec come out to provide a remedy. Patrick along with tech Valentin did a thorough investigation, educated me about what was going on and how to address it, and set about resolving my issue. Valentin made two follow-up trips and was extremely thorough and professional. Problem solved, a great experience with a great outfit that remedied an undesirable situation. I highly recommend Pestec.
I called several pest companies after my neighbors uprooted the ivy in their backyard and sent the resident rats looking for other homes. I found a dead rat on the outside of my house, and smelled the familiar musty odor of a dead rat inside my home. When I saw a small blur out of the corner of my eye, dashing from my refrigerator to the range, I was done! Several pest companies don’t even bother handling a rodent problem. Patrick from Pestec came over, educated me about rats…yuck!…. and set multiple traps. He didn’t use any poison, which I appreciated because I have a 4-year-old in the house. The second visit was to rat-proof the exterior–of a 4 story home. Done! It’s been more than six months with zero evidence of any rodents. Many thanks!
This company provided us with excellent service. They got rid of our bedbug problem. They were prompt, knowledgeable and friendly. They communicated with us every step of the way over the month long job. It’s great to find a company that has such customer service skills along with professional know how! And, they saved us money compared to others we checked with that wanted to do overkill work at overkill prices. Thanks Pestec. (they also bring in the cutest little beagle to sniff out the bugs).
* excellent, friendly, professional service
* highly knowledgable and willing to explain their services in detail
* effective results to the root of the underlying problem (so it won’t re-occur)
* fair and reasonable in price
* “truly green” (not “green-washed”) and sustainable in their integrated pest management techniques.
My experience with Pestec was short and sweet. They were able to talk us down from a mild panic about the possibility of bedbugs. They used logic to determine that we probably didn’t have a problem, but offered the professional dog-sniffing approach if we were to find more evidence. This was not the try-to-scare-us-into-treatment approach that I was expecting, and for that reason these will be the first people I call if I do find more evidence of a problem. The five stars is for honesty and professionalism, as well as their green techniques, but to be fair I haven’t actually had them do work.
I had a surprisingly pleasant phone conversation with the customer service rep trying to figure out what was causing the bug bites my family and I were getting. The woman was so knowledgable, helpful, friendly and encouraging. Exactly what you’d want in this situation. She put my mind at ease and gave me a clear idea of what my options were, laid out the costs (reasonable) and encouraged me to call back after I’d tried a few remedies myself. I love this place.
Herminio of Pestec came last month to help with a mouse problem. The “arrival window” was 10-12; he arrived at 10 and stayed the whole time! First inspected downstairs unit for mice; set 4 traps (carefully since a dog lives there) and pointed out areas where they could get in that we had missed. Also looked around my garage area and found old rat droppings. Recommended blocking areas inside (block gaps) and outside (vents with chicken wire). He set 4 rat traps. Charged $175 as stated when I made the appointment. He was professional, courteous, helpful. Pestec would do the gap-filling etc. for additional charge but I had my friend do it. I will call them again! P.S.–They use only humane methods–none of those nasty glue traps!
Thanks [to] Cherry and [I also] wanted to mention how great working with Pestec and Patrick has been. You guys have such great customer service and communication which makes my job so easy and Patrick is just awesome- always smiling and has a solution for whatever issues we’re having at that moment.
I called Pestec for ant and rat control help. Pedro did an excellent job. He’s pleasant, reliable, and professional.
I have experienced outstanding customer service at Pestec. Had used them for a rodent problem three years ago and I remembered Pedro and contacted him when I realized there were rats in the backyard again– not unusual in SF. Pedro is so knowledgeable and pleasant to work with! So happy to find his traps full! So cheery about carrying off the remains! He makes all the yucky things disappear. Pedro has made an unpleasant situation as pleasant as possible!
I was very pleased with your technicians. They obviously knew what they were doing and did a great job of explaining the process to me. They were also very pleasant. A pleasure doing business with them.
Pestec is making it possible for us to manage our pests while still taking care of our health and environment. They are a GREAT partner!
