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.

We describe our business as Family owned and operated

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.

This company can't get their story straight, cheated me out of one visit and mislead pricing.

Review by in San Diego, CA
They are based in Orange County so I would not recommend the pest control segment of their business for fellow San Diego residents. They have limited access during weekends so if an animal is trapped on a Friday evening it may take awhile for them to remove it. Also, my technician commented on how bad the traffic was each time he visited...making me feel bad that he had to drive that distance.

Review by in La Habra, CA
They came out right away but the guy who came later to do the work hadn't been told what he was here to do. I don't know if what they did was effective or not.

Review by in Corona, CA
The office called me promptly and scheduled a service call. We were happy with Mark, he did an inspection around the exterior and then went into the attic. My only concern is that the girl in the office said the follow up calls would be for the next two Thursdays, but on the following Thursday we called Mark to see if he was coming and he said it wasn't scheduled. So the office needs to coordinate better with the field. Mark came back yesterday and also gave us a bid to fix a vent opening in the attic. We will continue to use this company in the future.

Review by in Highland, CA
Received an initial treatment for ants and to a lesser extent spiders. All is well so far. They offered to come back for a follow-up treatment if I have any problems (none at this point). Also signed up for monthly treatments to keep the ants under control during the summer months when they are most active.

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.

NOTE: Member service professional information confirmed as described above may change or expire over time; while HomeAdvisor attempts to maintain accurate and up-to-date information, and confirms changes when notified, we cannot guarantee that profile and screening information is accurate. Therefore, we recommend that before working with a service professional you verify that information presented is still current and/or acceptable to you.
