About Official Pest Prevention
Official Pest Prevention was born January 1, 2000 when the tech bubble was about to burst and people were still concerned about potential Y2K problems. Starting with a few contacts, and only four full-time employees, the small company has grown into an organization that today employs over 25 people, maintains a fleet of 18 trucks, and has serviced over 21,000 northern California households. This tremendous growth has come from loyal customers recommending our work to their friends, family, and neighbors. Although Official Pest Prevention opened in Elk Grove, demand for quality pest control service poured in from nearby cities. Representatives of Official Pest Prevention began taking calls from surrounding areas and within a year we found ourselves greatly expanding our service territory. By the end of 2000, Official had begun servicing an area that took in a 60 mile radius. Official Pest Prevention went north (Sacramento, Citrus Heights, Roseville, Rocklin, Lincoln), south (Galt, Lodi, Stockton, Manteca, Ripon, Modesto, Tracy), and east (Folsom, Eldorado Hills). The following year, (2001), Official expanded westward to include Davis, Dixon, Vacaville, Fairfield, and Suisun.
The Official Pest Prevention service line has also expanded over the years. With only residential pest control early on, Official Pest Prevention now offers commercial pest control services, industrial pest control, a full line of lawn and weed control services, tree and shrub fertilization and insect control, pigeon exclusion, and gopher, mole, and ground squirrel control. Expansion plans in the future include locations that will service a greater portion of the Oakland and San Francisco Bay areas as well as other locations that will provide service to the central valley, including Visalia, Fresno, and Bakersfield.
