I’ve had Gecko out twice now and somehow they were able to come out the same day that I called, which was fantastic.  The first visit was for an ant problem in the kitchen.  They were professional, informative, and fast.  The second visit was for suspected termites, but it turned out to be old damage.  They did not charge any fees for that visit, which I was also impressed by.  I definitely recommend them!

Colleen R. Chico Ca. "Yelp!"

I was very impressed with Gecko’s customer service. Initially when I called I talked with Megan. She was very informative about the process and pricing. This may seem like a given but I called other companies and they couldn’t give me any of that information over the phone. This was definitely a major deciding factor.

What an honest, and upstanding company! I called Gecko after being given a bogus diagnosis of rat infestation by one pest company and then blown off by another one. What a relief to meet Richard Smith and feel like he was genuinely concerned with what was in our best interest. He even cleaned the cobwebs in our garage as a favor! I’m so grateful that I found Gecko.

Pest Problems in Chico

Chico is a great place to live. However, the climate and abundance of agriculture cause many pest issues. Whether you live in downtown Chico, or by Bidwell park, you have seen cockroaches. They prefer the warm moist environment that the area provides during the spring.  This combined with an ample food source allows cockroaches to explode through Summer into fall.

Another big problem pest is the Roof Rat. This is the most destructive vertebrate pest in our area. Fresh fruits and nuts from nearly every backyard provide a plentiful feast.  Food and other reasons are why we have seen a steady uptick in the number of calls related to rats.
