Green Program

With QualityPro and GreenPro certifications, we do our 

part to deliver high-quality service and preserve the planet.


As green services have become a preferred choice among customers, California American Exterminator is proud to announce its new designation from the National Pest Management Association as "GreenPro Certified". This designation not only reflects our exceptional pest management services but more, our commitment to cultivating an environmentally-responsible business.


In order to receive our GreenPro certification our route managers providing green services must complete a comprehensive exam dedicated to verifying individual knowledge of environmentally responsible pest management. The GreenPro certification also satisfies the new 'green certification' requirements for apartment communities set forth by the United States Department of Housing and Development.


Now, more than ever, consumers are seeking pest management methods that address their pest problems, as well as their concerns regarding the protection of the environment. The QualityPro and GreenPro designation reflects our awareness that customers want to be confident that the services performed on their properties are environmentally sensitive.


California American Exterminator employs a comprehensive, environmentally friendly approach when treating a property. All of our pest control treatments include a green blend program, using a combination of Integrated Pest Management (IPM) systems, traditional products as well as green products. Under our GreenPro certification we also offer a 100% IPM/Green Program.

  • How is GreenPro administered?
    GreenPro is managed by the National Association of Pest Management (NPMA). An independent advisory board has been selected to oversee all functions of the program. This group is comprised of environmental experts, representatives from non-governmental organizations, representatives from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and representatives from GreenPro certified companies.
  • Where can I learn more about GreenPro?
    You can visit the National Association of Pest Management's website and visit their GreenPro section for more information.
  • How is the GreenPro certification unqiue?
    It is the most widely recognized certificiation available to companies in the pest management industry. It has the most comprehensive standards of any available pest program, and requires companies that participate to submit to independent audits.
  • How are companies audited to guarantee compliance with program standards?
    All GreenPro companies are audited in relation to business operations, once within the first year of becoming GreenPro certified and on-site at least once every five years. To ensure credibility, GreenPro has retained a national third-party audit firm that conducts the on-site evaluations and reports back to the indpendent advisory committee on a regular basis.
  • My county has a shelter in place but I have a scheduled spray treatment, what should I do?"
    If your tenant has a scheduled spray treatment (such as a bed bug or flea treatment) but your county is under a shelter in place, we are able to treat the unit PROVIDED thetenant is able to vacate the entire unit for a minimum of four hours. If the tenant is not able to leave, then the treatment will have to be rescheduled to another time when they are able. We are handling situations like this on a case-by-case basis and we encourage you to contact our office if you have any questions.
  • Is California American Exterminator still open during COVID-19?
    Short answer: yes. Our business remains open during the county-mandated shelter in place. The Governor of California has deemed pest control as an essential operation.

Field Staff have maintained regular business hours of Monday through Friday, 9am-5pm Office hours have temporarily changed to Monday through Friday, 10am-3pm to accommodate remote work
  • Our office will be closed for the shelter in place but I have a resident who is in need of service, what should I do?"
    We are handling situations like this on a case-by-case basis. Please contact our office to discuss the best route of action for you.
  • Can I receive exterior treatments if someone is ill?
    Yes. Our company remains available for exterior treatments such as granulations, sprays, and dewebbings, where and when appropriate.
  • I have tried calling your office but I can't get through?
    Our office hours are currently Monday-Friday from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM. Please note that our office hours and availability need to remain flexible during this stressful time as some of our staff works remotely.

We will return your call as soon as we are able. You can also send requests through email or our website.
  • Can I still receive interior treatments?
    At this time, we are still conducting pest control treatments and inspections for interior units that are vacant or occupied by HEALTHY individuals. If you or a resident is ill, please contact us as soon as possible so that we may reschedule your service to a time when you are well. If we enter a unit where we suspect a tenant is ill, we will NOT complete service and consult the manager to reschedule their treatment. Our company puts aside judgement, especially during these times, as it is in everyone's best interest to be honest and transparent if they are feeling unwell. Please note that this policy is subject to change.
