Rat and Mice Removal

Rodent Control for Ventura and Santa BarbaraSpectrum includes general rodent control services as an important component of its overall residential pest program. And there is no additional cost to maintain effective mice or rat control at your property. Mice and rats gnaw their way into crawl space areas, wall voids, garages and behind counters. They are in constant search for moisture, food and shelter. Other rodent problems can fester in outdoor locations under thick bushes or in patches of ground ivy. Once detected by a thorough pest inspection, mice and rats need to be sealed off from shelter indoors and controlled outdoors. Spectrum Environmental customers and clients appreciate the peace of mind knowing that rodent control ( rat and mice removal) is included in each general bi-monthly or quarterly pest control service.

Wasp and Bee Removal

Wasp and Bee Removal in Ventura and Santa BarbaraBees are best left alone. They contribute enormously to our landscape vegetation and assist our valued crop farmers and orchards in Southern California. Sometimes, however, bee removal is the best option. Professional bee removal becomes necessary if a beehive is in an area with allergic people nearby, or if small children are in danger. Imagine a beehive established on the grounds near the front entrance of a hospital. In these certain circumstances, it is important to quickly remove the beehive and relocate it elsewhere. And where better a place for bee relocation than a California orchard!

Roach Control

  • I wanted to thank you so much for your great service. I have used your company for years and have always had great customer service. Your company has been reliable, dependable, and trustworthy. Recently, I have had the mice problem which you know I hate. You have been sensitive to that and I really appreciate that. It helps to have someone help with the problem who understands I am going nowhere near them. Anyways, I appreciate your great customer service, care and reliability. Those are important qualities to have as a good business, and ones that people like me look for, especially being a single homeowner and hating pests. It is also great that your company has friendly, helpful employees. That makes it easy to work with you. Thanks again for doing such a great job!!

  • We have been customers of Spectrum for at least 10 years, having left another company very dissatisfied. We had problems with carpenter ants, and the previous company just could not fix the problem and had no answers. A friend recommended Spectrum, and from their first visit to our home- we were so much happier. They have always been so efficient, timely, and ready to arrive in a moment's notice for emergencies; something that was so surprising at the time but making us huge fans. I have since given their card to so many new people in town and family friends. The staff coming to our home and on the phone is always so friendly and courteous- we could not be more pleased with a service.

We have had countless other companies out to our house to spray and maintain our Ant and Rodent problem, with no success!! Spectrum is the only company that has kept the Ants and rodents away since they started in 2006. We are so impressed with the excellent customer service we receive with this company.
