Company Review

Banks Pest Control is a family-owned, second-generation pest control company that has served homes and businesses in major parts of Kern County, California, with uttermost integrity since 1969.

It is currently managed by Don Banks, the son of the company’s founder, Orland Banks. Don Banks is keen to reinforce his father’s mantra of emphasizing integrity and customer satisfaction. From its 7440 District Blvd Bakersfield, California, offices, the company targets customers within cities such as Shafter, Delano, Arvin, Tehachapi, Taft, and Wasco.

Banks Pest Control uses well-proven technologies to thoroughly exterminate household pests such as fleas, bed bugs, ants, bats, ticks, roaches, and rodents.

Its varied methods and approaches make Banks Pest Control stand out against the competition. It also addresses customer needs as is apparent by its A+ rating with the BBB, and 4 stars on Google reviews.

Using the minimally-invasive thermal remediation technology, Bank Pest Control efficiently controls bed bugs at all stages. Technicians understand the complexity involved in controlling ants, and that’s why they employ the chemical perimeter treatment approach, which involves using superior microscopic capsules to eliminate ant colonies.

With its effective wildlife control and extermination program, Bank Pest Control’s team can exterminate raccoons, opossums, and skunks, repair wildlife-triggered damages, and seal possible entries to protect against future invasions.

It has got many good client testimonials, most of which applaud its responsiveness and reliability. Clients that have subscribed to its bi-monthly service say that the technicians are always on-time, and its de-webbing and exterior treatment services are always top-notch.

Customers that have subscribed to the quarterly services say that the technicians are prompt in scheduling visits and always do a clean job without inconveniencing them in any way. Several customers have recommended the company’s one-time service, saying that the technicians always address pest extermination issues professionally and promptly.

Most customers who gave it 5 stars in Google praised the technicians’ friendliness, promptness of the services, and extensiveness of the service coverage. Over 60% of the customers that reviewed Banks Pest Control in Angie’s list felt that its customer representatives are caring, friendly, and polite.

Sadly, other customers who reviewed Banks Pest Control’s services which has just 2 stars on Yelp felt that it needs to improve its service quality and customer responsiveness. Some customers also complained that the technicians who visited their homes weren’t friendly and didn’t do a superb job. Considering the many positive reviews and high ratings in both Angie’s list and Google, it’s only fair to say that the technicians who didn’t perform probably had a bad day at work.

Banks Pest Control offers one-time, bi-monthly, and quarterly services. The bi-monthly service is priced at $79, the quarterly service is $99 every three months, and the one-time service is $149. It doesn’t offer free inspection services, though. Comparing the three service packages, the quarterly plan is the most affordable.

Banks Pest Control Company arranges its services to match the unique health needs of its customers. It uses low-toxicity chemicals that are proven to be less harmful and environmentally friendly. The chemicals used by the company are odorless. You don’t have to worry about extra-smelly odors lingering in your home or office after the treatment. Its minimally-invasive thermal remediation technology is also proven to be safe and friendly to pets and kids.

If you live in Kern County, reach out to Banks Pest Control Company for all your pest extermination and control services. The company uses environmentally-friendly techniques and offers budget-friendly plans.
