Company Review

For nearly 20 years, Major League Pest Control has been helping northern San Diego County residents rid their homes of a variety of insects and rodents. Paul, the company owner, has spent more than 40 years dedicating himself to the pest and termite control industry. Along with his years of expertise, he and his staff stay current with the latest methods for combating pests in Southern California.

More than 200 customers have given quite positive reviews of the company on Yelp, Google, and Angie’s List with higher than 4.5-star ratings on all three. The company also rates an A+ with the Better Business Bureau.

Major League Pest Control says its policy is one of “low impact solutions” while providing the most effective methods available for their customer’s environments. The company listens to its clients and continues to utilize the latest technology, adding new services upon research following customer feedback.

Major League cares about the safety of the families and pets in the homes they service with technicians paying particular care around the areas used most by pets, as well as their owners.

In Southern California, there are two common types of termites found – dry wood termites and subterranean termites. Drywood termites nest directly in wood. They can be found in wooden structural beams, flooring, roof eaves, attics, decks, and more. As the name implies, subterranean termites live in underground colonies, near to the home and other structures. Tunneling through the ground from their colonies, these termites can be found in home foundations, garages, other outbuildings, and crawlspaces, all in search of food.

Fumigation with tenting is the most common treatment of dry wood termites. Major League Pest Control agrees that it is the most effective whole-house termite treatment. However, this takes 24-48 hours of tenting with the residents, including all pets, out of the home for two nights. In addition, all opened food sources must be removed or thrown out following treatment.

A good alternative to fumigation, which Major League also utilizes, is heat treatment. Chemical-free, heat treatment can take place while the family and pets remain in the home. This method uses specialty-designed heaters to produce heated airflow through the ducts of the home. The temperature is monitored by a digital thermometer and probes to assure that the proper temperature is maintained to kill off any wood-destroying insects. This substitute is safe for the family and pets.

A different approach is used to rid a property of subterranean termites, with a pest control barrier set up around the perimeter of the infected structure. The product used also prevents future subterranean termites from making the area their home.

Major League Pest Control offers free inspections and quotes. The company also offers a guarantee in that, if problems are found following a regular service treatment, a technician will return and retreat the home for free. The company also states on its Yelp listing that it is currently offering reduced rates during the COVID-19 pandemic.

While no complaints in the reviews were found with the basic pest treatment and regular pricing, there were a couple of negative reviews about the process of getting a quote, and one involving a price increase above the estimate for a home that was for sale. But, yet another reviewer said, “Their prices are fair and service is impressive.”

The staff of Major League Pest Control pays a lot of attention to child and pet safety, while also striving to be eco-friendly. One customer wrote in a review, that the technician went out of his way, “making me feel at ease regarding the products used since we have children and pets.” Another said, “Safely takes care of silverfish, ants, and spiders on regular service.”

Safety is important to Major League, as they indicate on their website and in the information provided through Yelp and Google. Their ratings indicate that their customer agrees.

The words knowledgeable, informative, and thorough are used time and again in review of Major League Pest Control. Recent reviews along with older ones, agree this company is a good provider for pest control service in the northern San Diego County area.

Another definite plus is the company’s customer service. Reviewers agree that it is top-notch, and the fact that someone takes the time to thank reviewers for their comments time and time again on various platforms supports the issue and that they are paying attention.
