Hello, from the entire Killroy Pest Control Team!
Killroy has a tech team like no other.
With other companies, you may see a different tech each time your home is treated. But Killroy technicians treat their route as if it were their own small business. This level of consistency, trust, and respect is a win-win for everyone!
Our thirty employees have a total of 350 years of experience in pest control! We are a small enough company that we can pay special attention to the unique needs of our Bay Area customers, but we are large enough that our technicians can communicate with each other and work together as a problem-solving team that can tackle almost any unique pest control situation.
