Santa Rosa Pest Control
You know it is funny when I think back to the origins of pest control and exterminators because so much has changed. When I was a young lad growing up in the bay area, I remember hearing my mom and dad say, “looks like we gotta call the exterminator again! Darn rats are in the walls!” We never used the words pest control. Well as the world has evolved so has the world of exterminators and pest control. The word exterminator is definitive; something is going to die. The word can be construed as harsh, not environmentally friendly, and troubling for some people. In lieu of the definition and connotation associated with the word, society decided to create a gentler and softer term that would make people feel more comfortable. Hence, here we are in the world of pest control companies.
Pest control companies still exterminate, terminate, eradicate, and any other word associated with the killing of something (insects, rodents, arachnids). Now, it is just disguised under the term “control”. I am a fan of this change and this is why. Here is a lite background. I am the owner of Santa Rosa Exterminators. I grew up in an area that had a ton of bugs and rodents. My first pet was a rat! I love insects and animals, always have. Whenever I catch a bug or spider in my house I relocate it to my garden. When I had a mouse infestation problem in my chicken coup, I used live traps. In 3 days I caught over 30 mice and relocated them to my neighbors’ garage. Totally kidding, I did not do that, even though I wanted to. So how does someone with such a love and affinity for these so called pests, own and operate a pest control company? Easy, because I like to provide the least invasive and most environmentally friendly pest control solutions. My tactics are extremely effective and I spend plenty of time listening to my customers and their needs before I plan my attack. I also take into consideration the implications of removing or eradicating a pest from that specific environment. For example, recently a homeowner called me and said they had a bee infestation in their house. After discovering the infestation was the wonderful honey bee, and knowing honey bees need some human protection, I created a plan to relocate these bees to a new home. Long story short, the honey bees are now pollinating beautiful flowers, plants, fruit trees in another area in Sonoma County. The bees did not need to be destroyed; they just needed a new home away from businesses and homeowners. Now if you had wasps or yellow jackets, those things are nasty, and I would kill them!
