Pest Control

Pests don’t appear out of thin air. They have to come from somewhere, often outside. This is why we believe in comprehensive pest control. We don’t just do rodent control in Downey. We also offer pest control by looking at what’s happening around your property to see why pests are coming in so we can do a better job of keeping them out.

I made several calls to rat exterminator companies yesterday, after about a week of trying and failing to catch a rat ourselves. Louis, the owner of American Rat Control, was the fastest to respond and came out within a couple hours. He was thorough, courteous, and effective. By the time he left, we knew where the rat had gotten in, we had proper traps laid down inside, a plan to clean up sources of food we had thought were secure but were not, as well as a plan for outdoor control. The traps worked within hours, catching and killing the rat. A huge relief. Pricing was also very reasonable. I fully recommend this company.
I could not be happier with this company. We bought a home with some unwanted residents in it. Louis has referred us to a great company to remove all the infested insulation. Once that was done Edgar came out and did a very thorough job of Rodent proofing our home. He also did a great job replacing the screens on our crawlspace, and are coming back checking on the traps regularly. I am very sad to see some of the negative reviews which truly do not represent the company I know and worked with. These guys are great. Louis and his people have your best interest at heart and my experience has been very pleasant, positive and successful. If you watch them and see what these guys have to do to get the work done even in the heat of 110 Fahrenheit temperatures, you will have a greater respect for their work. Highly recommend them and continue to do so. Thank you Louis and your Team. Great Job at our new home... THANKS

I made an emergency call to American Rat Control this morning to remove a rat from my tenant's outdoor home pre-school. Fortunately Louis, the American Rat Control company owner, called back quickly and happened to be in the area. Without an appointment he immediately came over and quickly removed the rat so it wouldn't affect the kids. I'm so thankful to him for being so gracious and altering his schedule for me. If you want to work with a professional who gives you good solid honest service, I highly recommend him. He's now my guy for any rodent removal I need.
