Founded in 1988, R&D Pest Services, Inc. delivers effective, least-toxic alternative solutions for our clients pest problems in homes and businesses. Co-owners Rick Ellis and Dave Fox apply UC degrees in Chemistry and Entomology and years of experience to keep R&D at the forefront in using the latest materials, equipment, and techniques available. Our knowledgeable and friendly technicians are highly trained to eliminate ants from your home or office, gophers from your yard, and address most other insect or rodent concerns. Our ant control program provides a great example of how our approach differs substantially from our competitors. R&D Pest Services is quite possibly the only pest control company that will guaranty the control of indoor ant invasions without using pesticides indoors. Utilizing granule ant baits and slow-acting sprays, we address the ants strictly from the outside. The result is a much more thorough control of the ants at the source the nests and a reduced chance of exposure to people and pets. And its very user-friendly, since there is no need to empty cupboards or closets, and no need to evacuate the home for several hours. Rick and the entire R&D Pest Services staff are also active in the community. For many years, we have provided St. Clares Home, the North County Serenity House, and several other non-profit organizations with professional pest control services free of charge, saving these groups thousands of dollars annually. **6 Key Factors to Consider When Choosing a Pest Control Service:** 1.Can they eliminate ants without indoor insecticides so you won't need to leave or empty cabinets? 2.Is the treatment virtually odor free? 3.Do they use a targeted spraying approach or do they just blast with a power sprayer? 4.Are they qualified to perform fumigation? (Single most effective way to control GOPHERS) 5.Do they have degrees in Entomology and Chemistry? 6.Do they have a Money Back Guarantee? **R&D Pest Services answers YES to all these questions.**

    I have lived in the San Diego area for over 30 years and have tried several pest services. This is by far the best ant and pest control company that I have ever used. Their prices are very affordable too. Stop your search now and use these guys! They come out about once every 2 months and we almost never have any insect intruders into the house or any problems outside. If we see any ant or spider activity at all then all we have to do is call them and they send someone out immediately to perform another treatment for free. Mark is just great! He calls us a day in advance so we can make sure that our courtyard gate is unlocked the next morning. He is always on time, very polite and efficient. Once, we had an invasion of tiny bugs in our pantry and he came inside and helped my wife empty the pantry and find the culprit which was a bag of rice which she forgot about that she had tucked away a while ago. The bugs managed to make a hole in the bag and were helping themselves to the contents. He is very knowledgeable. Problem solved! Trust me, you will be happy you used them!

    My wife, daughter and I moved from University Heights to Torrey Highlands this past summer. Our house was inundated with ants, and there were a lot of spiders, too. Ants were coming in through the outlets and in all the bathrooms and sinks. My wife woke up one night with ants crawling all over her in bed. That was the last straw. R & D was fast and friendly: we never even knew they came. They only applied their formula outside the house, nothing inside. Since then, we have seen not one ant or spider in the house. Problem solved. They come back every other month. The price is reasonable and totally worth it.

    I have used them for 2 years on my mobile home. They are always professional and friendly. I have the bimonthly service so I don't have to call them Highly recommend.

    I have been using R&D Pest Services for the past year since we moved to San Diego. I have been very satisfied with their services. Both Mark and Dave are very professional. They come over when it's due for services. I don't have to call to schedule an appointment!

    They are also very knowledgeable about pests and always address my questions or concerns very thoroughly with scientifically based evidence. I also like their ant control method - they only spray outside, not inside the house. The treatment has been very effective. I haven't seen another ant inside the house since I started using their services. Highly recommended!

    I have used R & D Pest Services for 10 years now. They have always given me a very good service, answered all my questions and concerns and they have helped me promptly when I needed. All personnel have been very friendly. I give them my best recommendations.

    We've been using R&D for almost two years and have been very happy with the service they've provided. They taken care of most pest problems and are very friendly and easy to work with. They are great at answering questions and giving advice. Once they came to spray and we were still noticing spiders and ants more frequently than usual, so they were great to come out and spray again for free that month.

  • erin.williams

    This company has been wonderful. They have been helping us for 7 years with ants and some black widows. Only once have ants come inside and R & D was out the same day to help us. Many of our neighbors have ant problems. Dave and all of the other employees that we have met have been friendly, courteous and efficient.
