How We Got Started

I chose to work in this industry because our owner Andy has been in the service industry since the tender age of 8 years old when he ran his own egg route in his neighborhood. Interestingly enough, his egg route was so successful that sometimes his mother borrowed money from Andy to pay the rent. During Andy's adolescent years, he met his wife Nancy in the 3rd grade and finally started dating her sophomore year of high school. Andy played football and basketball, while Nancy was head cheerleader. The high school sweethearts stayed together into college as Andy received a football scholarship from Stanford University. After graduation, Andy and Nancy headed back down to beautiful Southern California to start their own pest and termite control company, Bug Squad and POW! Exterminating, Inc. The company was established in 1980 and still going strong just like their marriage. That is what Bug Squad and POW! Exterminating is all about. .

We started in this industry in 1980.

Review by in Mission Viejo, CA
Preparing the house for the spraying was exhausting. The technician was on time and advised us to leave the house for 3 hours. He wasn't sure if it was actually bedbugs and afterwards we discovered he was right. The debris was not from bedbugs at all. $400 mistake on our part.

Project completed as scheduled. Worker was excellent, took special precautions not to create additional damage to walls while replacing the ceiling damage.

Andy can out the next day, gave me a very fair price on my wood replacement due to dry rot. Josh showed up next day and did a fantastic job. Would use them again in a heartbeat! Nice dealing with a company who does not screw you in your time of need.

Review by in Buena Park, CA
They did a good job but did not go completely under the whole house as required by my contract with them. They were efficient in what they did, but I really wanted someone to go underneath the house and spray as we have sand and know the ants colonize.

We hired POW Exterminating to take care of a mouse issue. They installed wire and steel wool at areas where the rodents were getting in.

Review by in Covina, CA
I asked the company to set a trap for Skunks. An opossum was caught in the trap on a very hot day. I called the company early in the morning. By 2 PM, it was over 100 degrees, and the company had not responded. So I let the opossum go myself. I am glad the Skunk was not caught.

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.
