Common type of pests reported in the Santa Cruz, CA area


These pests invade your home looking for food and water. And once they find it they invite all their friends.

They will definitely contaminate any food they find and there is evidence that some ants can cause allergic reactions in sensitive people.

Rats & Mice

Rodents are also on the look out for food and shelter. Their droppings and urine contaminate your home and can spread diseases.

They will definitely spoil stored food and will likely damage the structure of your home.

And they also have a nasty habit of chewing cables which can cause fires. So lack of effective rodent control could be risking your home and possibly even your life.


These are probably the most hated household pest and the very mention of their name is enough to give most people the creeps.
Unfortunately they are probably also the most common household pest in the USA.

Roaches spread bacteria and disease causing organisms. So effective cockroach control is essential.

Bees, Wasps & Yellowjackets

These are all stinging insects. And for some sensitive people their stings can cause major health problems but for most people are not usually dangerous – just painful.

They will all be aggressive if you disturb their nests. Yellowjackets on the other hand can be aggressive all the time – a real jerk!


These pests usually hitch a ride into your house on the back of the family pet but can also come from wild animals.

They feed on the host’s blood and once inside they are adapted to look for another host (you) that they can bite.

Their bites cause itching and can transmit diseases

Bed Bugs

They used to be rare but increased travel means we are now seeing a dramatic increase in these pests.

They can be hard to spot and the first sign of their presence is often an itchy red welt where they have extracted their meal of blood from the victim.

What you should expect from an exterminator:

A call to PestResponders will be answered quickly, courteously and professionally.

At PestResponders we split our service into four stages: – Inspect, Advise, Treat and, if necessary, Repeat.

1 - Inspect

Each visit starts with the PestResponders technician conducting a thorough inspection to get a detailed understanding of your rodent control or cockroach control problem.

The technician is looking for the source of the problem because it's just as important to stop it happening again as it is to clear the current infestation.

2 - Advise

The technician will advise you on the likely causes, how to clear the problem and also what you need to do to stop it ever happening again.

It is often the case that the pests you see are just the tip of a bigger hidden problem.

3 - Treat

When the nature of the full problem has been established we will agree a treatment plan with you to eradicate the infestation.

Our training and many years of subsequent experience lets us choose an appropriate treatment plan that will get rid of the problem with the minimum of risk to you, your family and the environment.

4 - Repeat

Sometimes it will only require a single treatment to clear the problem. But sometimes it will require multiple treatments.
Regular inspections and treatments can be a good idea to prevent problems recurring. This can depend on the type of pest, the environment and even the time of year.

The technician will advise you of the follow-up options they recommend and the likely costs so you can decide what you want to do. You stay in control at all times.

Science Based Pest Control

All PestResponders processes and techniques are always based on the best current scientifically tested approach as well as years of practical experience.

What does this mean? A greatly reduced risk to people, pets and the environment.

Why? Because any chemical controls (e.g. the pesticides we use) are employed far more accurately and in lesser quantities.

This more efficient approach to cockroach control and rodent control means effective results can be accomplished in the safest, most cost effective way possible.

The PestResponders objective is the elimination of infestations and the destruction they bring with them. By helping you to address the causes that led to the initial problem we can help reduce the need for those repeated ""one off"" service calls.

If you ever suffer the horror of discovering an infestation at your home or business its best to get hold of a competent local area pest control specialist without delay. They will provide accurate identification, offer recommended actions to ensure the safe elimination of the infestation or problem animal.

Be aware, the longer you turn a blind eye to a pest the more expensive it becomes.  Let a professional exterminator take care of it quickly to minimize the damage it will do to your home.

When insects and rodents discover a way into their property, homeowners frequently attempt to try to deal with the infestation on their own, unfortunately this often backfires, its risky and often proves to be a false economy. Pest control is best entrusted to a professional pest exterminator with the equipment and expertise to promptly, discretely and cost effectively take care of any animal or infestation situation.

How do you choose a local exterminator in Santa Cruz, CA?

How do you know who to call and who you can trust? Here's a list of things you might want to consider before choosing a Santa Cruz, CA exterminator:

  • Can they respond quickly?
  • Can they deal with your problem? - ants, cockroaches, rodents, termites, bed bugs, critters etc?
  • Are they local and do they understand local pests and conditions?
  • Will they be thorough?
  • Will they be discrete?
  • Are they insured?
  • Do they have the right licenses and certifications?
  • Do they listen to you?

What does it cost?

The costs of treatment will obviously depend on the nature of the problem and how difficult it is to deal with.

One-off problem

We can get rid of some problems in one treatment but others such as cockroach control, ant control and rodent control might need multiple treatments.

Either way if we are just treating one problem we will charge you for a one-off treatment

Regular service contract

Many pests are persistent, you get rid of them once but eventually they find their way back.

That’s why we offer a regular service contract where we will turn up periodically (monthly, bi-monthly, quarterly) to re-inspect and reapply cockroach control, ant control and rodent control treatments to make sure your home stays pest free.
