LAST UPDATED: September 18th, 2020

Since 2011, Armor Pest Defense has been providing environmentally friendly pest control services to customers in Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Ohio, Oklahoma, and Kansas. With a 100 percent money-back guarantee, the pest control company offers a number of solutions for a variety of insect and rodent problems. That said, Armor Pest Defense’s services are limited to pest control; no wildlife, crawl space, or lawn services appear to be available.

Top Ranked Companies


The Good

  • Comprehensive Insect Solutions
  • Money-Back Guarantee
  • NPMA-Associated Company

Comprehensive Insect Solutions

Armor Pest Defense will inspect the home’s exterior, including gutters, foundations, doors, windows, and overhangs for webs, nests, cracks and crevices, and other potential signs of unwanted pests. In addition to rat and mouse problems, Armor Pest Defense covers a wide range of common household pest issues, including the following:

  • Ant control
  • Beetles
  • Box Elder bug control
  • Centipedes and millipedes
  • Cockroaches
  • Crickets
  • Earwigs
  • Scorpions
  • Silverfish
  • Spiders — including black widow, brown recluse, and wolf spiders
  • Flying insects — including bees, wasps, yellow jackets, and hornets

Armor Pest Defense uses EcoSURE and Blueguard insecticide spray as part of its exterminator services. EcoSURE is a botanical-based pesticide that is safe to humans and pets and is designed specifically to drive insects out of the home. Blueguard meanwhile creates a protective barrier around the home, effectively keeping pests out.

Money-Back Guarantee

Like most companies in the pest control industry, Armor Pest Defense offers homeowners a 100 percent money-back guarantee in the event of a pest infestation in between regularly scheduled seasonal treatments; however, this guarantee only applies to insects and rodents that fall within Armor Pest Defense’s list of covered pests.

NPMA-Associated Company

Armor Pest Defense’s Idaho location is listed as one of the National Pest Management Association’s (NPMA) trusted pest control providers, a rare achievement for a pest control company without the national recognition that companies like Orkin and Terminix enjoy. The NPMA is a nonprofit organization committed to connecting consumers and businesses with leaders in the pest control industry. This endorsement from the NPMA highlight’s speaks to the company’s professionalism and quality of service.


The Bad

  • No Additional Services
  • Not QualityPro-Certified, GreenPro-Certified
  • No Termite Control
  • Limited Availability

No Additional Services

Armor Pest Defense does not appear to offer some of the additional services offered by industry leaders. These include the following:

  • Wildlife removal and control  — identifies and humanely extracts wild animals (e.g. bats, birds, raccoons, etc.)
  • Attic and crawl space services — in addition to searching common hotspots, providing repair and/or insulation services to prevent future pest infestations
  • Lawn treatment — checks the grass and garden surrounding the home for nests and other pest damage, and provides treatment to both eradicate pests and restore foliage

Not QualityPro-Certified, GreenPro-Certified

Although Armor Pest Defense has been identified as a NPMA-associated provider, the company has not been QualityPro-certified or GreenPro-certified. These certifications (sponsored by the NPMA) indicate that a pest control company has met certain industry standards relating to professionalism and environmentally friendly products respectively.

No Termite Control

A major gap in Armor Pest Defense’s services is its lack of termite control treatment. Termite damage can be a huge problem, especially within Armor Pest Defense’s service area. Subterranean termites and drywood termites can be found (in some combination) in every state Armor Pest Defense covers. And as its money-back guarantee only applies to covered pests, Armor Pest Defense customers who have experienced termite damage will need to work with a top pest control company in their area to resolve the issue.

Additionally, the company does not cover parasites like mosquitos and bed bugs, or flea and tick problems.

Limited Availability

Armor Pest Defense has six locations:

  • Columbus, Ohio
  • Denver, Colorado
  • Kansas City, Kansas
  • Oklahoma City, Oklahoma
  • Phoenix, Arizona

The company also has additional storage locations in Blackfoot, Idaho; Buckeye, Arizona; Oklahoma City, Oklahoma; and Denver, Colorado. Although this service area is larger than the single-state coverage offered by the majority of pest control providers, industry leaders boast a more natural reach, and often cover upward of 30 to 40 states.


The Bottom Line

For most insect problems, Armor Pest Defense is a quality choice. Customers within its limited service area can rest assured knowing the company uses nontoxic products that are effective at driving and keeping insects out of the home. The company’s association with the NPMA is an effective endorsement of its trustworthiness, and the money-back guarantee will ensure customers aren’t paying for unexpected outbreaks.

On the other hand, customers looking for a company that provides more comprehensive pest control services that extend beyond eradicating insects (e.g. wildlife and termite control, structural repairs, lawn care, etc.) should look elsewhere and investigate top pest control companies.
