San Francisco Pest Control Providers

For more than 30 years, Pestec has provided pest control services to commercial and government customers in the San Francisco Bay Area. Our service area includes the City and County of San Francisco, San Mateo County, Contra Costa County, Alameda County, and Santa Clara County.

We offer various pest management services, including the control of rats, mice, ants, cockroaches, and yellow jackets. We also provide pest prevention consultations for new construction projects, Integrated Pest Management assessments, and training for facilities to manage pests proactively.

Unlike traditional pest control and exterminator companies, Pestec focuses on pest prevention and pest management over the long term, avoiding quick-fix solutions to pest infestations that do not provide lasting results. Traditional pest control relies heavily on pesticides, but we use an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) approach.

IPM is a comprehensive, environmentally sensitive approach to managing pests. This science-based, common-sense approach for reducing populations of disease vectors and public health pests uses pest management techniques that focus on pest prevention, pest reduction, and the elimination of conditions that lead to pest infestations.

We have successfully accumulated a collection of least-toxic practices to control pests. And by doing this, we have reduced our pesticide use to a minimum.

Implementing an IPM plan and program of prevention and monitoring can decrease costs for our clients over the long run.

Pestec is also the only company in the country that certifies its entire operations through EcoWise Certified and Green Shield Certified. We are an ever-evolving company that uses industry-leading techniques to better the places and communities we live and work.

I have used Bugs Patrol for the past 10 years. Their professionalism, knowledge, thoroughness and fast response are second to none. I have used Bugs Patrol services for my home and business. Great job and guys.

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.

(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 Pestec for ant and rat control help. Pedro did an excellent job. He’s pleasant, reliable, and professional.


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.


Patrick is so informed, articulate, respectful and very nice to have in our home as a technician. Thanks! jane
