Company Review

Akela Pest Control is dedicated to handling the pest control needs of Riverside and the Greater Los Angeles area in California. 

In business since 2013, their offices are located at 5295 Arlington Ave, Riverside, Ca,92504

Akela covers a variety of common household pests that include ants, crickets, spiders, earwigs, bees, wasps, mosquitoes, cockroaches, termites, gophers, and rodents. After the initial inspection, a customized treatment plan is developed to meet their customer’s specific needs.

They sweep and treat eaves for common pests that include spiders and wasps. The lawn is treated with granules to break up egg cycles, and a property line is created to prevent intrusion from neighboring pests. A protective barrier surrounds the exterior foundation and entryway. The experienced technicians understand that 90% of pest problems start outside. To ensure thorough coverage, they treat driveways, walkways, fence lines, and garages. Interior service is not typical but available upon request

Most online reviews are from satisfied customers that are impressed with the professional technicians and quality of service. Several reviews mentioned that Akela does a great job removing spider webs and getting rid of everyday household pests.

A one-time service call is $199, although there is a $150 coupon available for first-time customers on the website. There is some negative feedback saying that if the initial treatment doesn’t work, the company encourages purchasing a pricey annual service plan. Several customers weren’t happy with the first service, saying it was not effective. Those that utilize the three-month treatment plans seem to have the best results.

There is an offer online that takes 50% off the first initial service if potential customers fill out a survey. Akela offers a 110% satisfaction guarantee. If customers experience recurring pest problems, technicians will come back to the property in between treatments free of charge. An extensive online pest library helps customers identify the pests they are seeing, providing useful tips to minimize the population.

Akela Pest Control has a 4.7-star rating on Google. On Yelp, the company receives 4 out of 5 stars. They have an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau and a 4.4-star rating on Facebook.

The experienced pest control company uses effective, family-friendly solutions customized to the specific needs of the customer. Their products are environmentally friendly and don’t cause a risk to pets or children.
