Our professional pest control technicians will conduct a thorough inspection of your home and property. After this, they will provide you with a detailed report outlining recommendations for elimination of the initial pest problem and prevention of future infestations.

Can I spray and get rid of my pest problem?
Inexperienced applications of over-the-counter pest control products are usually ineffective and can also be unsafe for pets, children, and adults if used improperly. Similarly, most pests return unless you take steps to prevent them. In as little as 60 days, new infestations can develop.
The only effective way to eliminate and prevent new infestations is to use a reputable pest prevention company with an ongoing service plan.
Why should I hire a professional pest prevention firm?
By the time you make the decision to look into pest management services, you have most likely tried it yourself. Over-the-counter treatments can kill some pests but are not as efficient at providing continuous prevention from re-infestation. It is also a well-known factor that most pests are relentless.

Why are these pests in my home?
You are living in their neighborhood. They were there before your neighborhood existed, or they were transported and placed in your area by landscape plants (as with fire ants). They like your home because your house provides them with the same essentials that we need, such as food, water and a place to live.
That is why our inspection is so important. It points out what a homeowner can do and the steps it takes to make your home pest free.
What kind of training have the pest technicians passed?
The exterminators working for No Pests Rancho Cucamonga have passed the Safe Use of Pesticides, Kill Germ Training courses.
How can I tell what type of pest problem I have?
If you have doubts about what kind of roach, spider or rodent is infesting your property, the best and most sure way to identify it is by scheduling an inspection with one of the professional pest control specialists.
How serious does the pest infestation have to be to get professional help?
Pests reproduce extremely fast, and they are even better at hiding from our sight. Seeing an individual one is almost always a sign of an infestation on the premises. When people try to handle the problem themselves, they might get the ones they see, but are usually inefficient in getting rid of the entire population, as it’s always hidden.
Do you handle domestic and commercial premises?
Yes, we work with all kinds of clients and properties. For a list of business properties, we deal with, check out our page for commercial customers.
If I only see a few insects should I be concerned?
It depends on the specific pests. Fire ants, wasps, black widow spiders and even centipedes can sting or bite. For certain people, these bites and stings can be more than just uncomfortable. They can be life threatening.
Fleas, ticks, bedbugs and mice, just to name a few more, can also cause real health concerns. If you have seen any of these pests, call us for a free inspection.
House crickets, on the other hand, are classified as a nuisance pest. They can be overbearing at night, with chirping that may prevent you from sleeping. Since nuisance pests don’t pose any real danger, one or two is not a significant cause for concern.
What are some signs that I have a pest infestation?
The obvious signs of an infestation would be the insects themselves, but sometimes their evidence is more subtle, like frass (insect waste) or damage to a cardboard box.
When the signs of infestation aren’t obvious, strict inspection and identification requires experienced pest management professional. Once the investigation is complete, pests have been identified, and the infestation severity determined, our pest pros will design a customized pest control plan around your specific needs.
Are all insects pests?
Absolutely not! Many insects have a vital part in our ecosystem. We treat only the ones that pose a threat or nuisance to our customers.
Is there a connection between pests and asthma in children?
Yes, bed bugs and cockroaches are known to trigger allergies and even lead to developing asthma in children. Their saliva, droppings and decomposing bodies contain allergens which trigger allergies and worsen asthma attacks.
