EcoGuard Pest Management Review
EcoGuard Pest Management is a regional chain with dozens of locations in Northern California. They serve the following counties: Amador Alameda, Butte, Contra Costa, El Dorado, Fresno, Merced, Placer, Sacramento, San Joaquin, Santa Clara, Solano, Stanislaus, Sutter, Yolo, and Yuba. Founded in 2011 by Curtis Wills, EcoGuard has an impressive satisfaction guarantee. They proclaim “if the bugs come back, so do we, at no additional cost.” They won the Super Service award from Angie’s List in 2017 and the Best Of award from Thumbtack in 2015 and 2016.
EcoGuard treats dozens of the most common pests found in Northern California, including cockroaches, ants, ticks, bed bugs, fleas, aphids, moths, wasps, termites, spiders, and rodents. Odds are if you have it, EcoGuard can exterminate it. The company tailors its solutions on environmental factors such as the time of the season, surrounding landscape, and the building’s architecture.
True to their name, EcoGuard is a very environmentally conscious company. Their approach is to use products that have a minimal environmental impact. They also have pet-friendly services that use organic pesticides like cloves, wintergreen, rosemary, and peppermint. This technique has won EcoGuard many positive reviews from green customers. Technicians will also inform customers of contributing factors to pest infestations, like if it is their breeding season or foraging season. Their website also has an impressive pest library should you want to learn more about the bugs on your property.
EcoGuard is in the middle of the road as far as costs go. Most customers report being satisfied with the cost of service, but there are a few complaints declaring they are too expensive. EcoGuard offers free estimates over the phone, but customers have reported that they are obliged to a $100-$200 charge for a technician to show up. This charge applies even if the only completed work is the inspection and nothing else is done. Other negative reviews also report that EcoGuard uses aggressive sales tactics. Be prepared to receive multiple phone calls and marketing emails until a purchase is made.
EcoGuard is one of the most safety-oriented pest control companies in the area. Their delicate touch has won them contracts for sensitive clients, like schools, nursing homes, food processing plants, and hospitals. One of their approaches incorporates Essentria products. While not organic, Essentria is one of the safest insecticides on the market. It does not require a re-entry period, so you can be in your home while the technician is applying it. Essentria also no aquatic toxicity, so it can be used guilt-free for outdoor applications near rivers and lakes. EcoGuard is fully compliant with the Environmental Protection Agency, State of California, and all relevant local municipalities.
EcoGuard is a terrific option for those who want safe and eco-friendly services. They have a very impressive online reputation, with amazing ratings from multiple customer review sites. They can be a little more costly than other exterminators, but that is usually the case for environmentally conscious solutions.
