Since 1988 R&D Pest Services, Inc. has been on the leading edge in delivering low-impact, highly effective solutions to pest problems in homes and businesses. We pioneered the "outside only" approach to solving ant invasions in structures, and our penchant for innovation has kept us on the forefront in ant control, spider control, and general insect and rodent control. How do we stay ahead of the rest?


We provide our services with our 100% Satisfaction Guarantee. As a result, in 2014 we achieved "SUPER SERVICE AWARD".

R&D provides a professional service and prides themselves in being friendly, highly educated, and with well-trained technicians. They have been green since their inception and are always improving the chemicals and the equipment they use. The technicians are problem-solvers and the owners are on-hand to personally deal with any situations that arise.


In addition to what was already said by Richelle and Rick that R&D has been green way before it was cool. What sets their business apart is that they are family owned/operated, small, and yet very committed to educating themselves and their customers, and have a very well trained staff. Over twenty-five years of quality and service.



Co-founders Rick Ellis and Dave Fox bring an expertise rarely found in a pest control company of any size. Both are former university researchers and have worked as technical trainers in integrated pest management. Each has over 25 years of hands-on experience in the Southern California pest control industry. Combine this experience with degrees in chemistry and entomology (study of insects) and it’s no wonder R&D produces the finest, most highly trained field specialists using the most effective techniques in pest control.
