Long List of Covered Pests

Rove Pest Control roves a range of common household pests that include a number on insects, arachnids, and rodents:

  • Ants (carpenter ants, little black ants, fire ants)
  • Spiders (black widow spiders, brown recluse spiders)
  • Rodent control (mice, voles, rats, moles)
  • Parasites (fleas, ticks, bed bugs, mosquitoes)
  • Beetles (Asian beetles, Japanese beetles)
  • Stinging insects (wasps, bees, hornets)
  • Cockroaches
  • Box Elder bugs
  • Centipedes and millipedes
  • Silverfish
  • Crickets
  • Earwigs

Thorough Residential Treatment

To combat infestation and the arrival of unwanted pests, Rove Pest Control provides a thorough treatment of the home’s interior, exterior, and surrounding area:

  • Interior — Full inspection of the home’s interior, including cracks and crevices, to determine existing and potential nesting sites and pest traffic; pesticide is administered in a way that dramatically reduces the risk to people and pets, and maximizes the effect on insects and other home invaders.
  • Exterior — Targets areas immediately surrounding the home, possible nest sites and entry points.
  • Eaves and Soffits — Treats protective overhangs that often act as protection for nests, webs, and pest homes. Products are applied to not only eliminate problem sites, but also prevent pests from returning.
  • Home and Yard — Pest control treatment that extends beyond the borders or the home to examine the lawn and garden for potential hot spots.

Rove Pest Control also offers customers a satisfaction guarantee: if any of the pest control company’s seasonal treatments do not meet the customer’s standard, or if pests return, Rove Pest Control will provide a retreatment of affected areas at no cost to the homeowner or business owner.

Specialty Services

The company provides a few specialty services for particularly difficult pests:

  • Bed Bug Control — Rove Pest Control employs a state-of-the-art heat treatment program that completely and safely eradicates bed bugs at every stage of their life cycle from the affected areas. This service is available in all states Rove Pest Control operates in.
  • Mosquito Control — Rove Pest Control conducts a three-pronged approach to mosquito treatment and removal, starting with a preventative treatment that explores necessary adjustments that need to be made to stop mosquitoes from reproducing in and swarming the home or business. The pest control company will then work on larva control and adult mosquito control as part of its custom mosquito prevention program (not available in Michigan).
  • Tree and Shrub — The pest control service also covers pests that attack trees, shrubs, and flowers. This is done through a soil injection treatment that eliminates the insects without harming the plant or tree. Target insects include the following: Adelgids, Aphids, Black Vine Weevil Larvae, Eucalyptus Longhorned Borer, Flatheaded Borer, Bronze Birch Alder Borer, Japanese Beetles, Lace Bugs, Leaf Beetles, Leafhoppers, Leafminers, Mealybugs, Pine Tip Moth Larvae, Psyllids, Royal Palm Bugs, Sawfly Larvae, Soft Scales, White Grub Larvae and Whiteflies (not available in Michigan).

Certifications and Accreditations

Rove Pest Control has secured a number of certifications, accreditations, and industry partnerships since its founding in 2006, including the National Bed Bug Association, the National Pest Management Association, and the Board of Certified Entomologists.

More specifically, Rove Pest Control has been QualityPro accredited since 2017. The QualityPro accreditation program (sponsored by the NPMA) promotes and enforces high professional standards within the pest control industry. The company also employs an Associate Certified Entomologist (ACE) with at least five years of comprehensive pest management experience across a variety of applications. In short, Rove Pest Control is a true expert in the field, and prepared to handle any pest within its purview.

The Bad

  • No Wildlife Control
  • No Termite Control
  • Limited Availability

No Wildlife Control

Unfortunately, Rove Pest Control does not offer wildlife control services — specifically birds, bats, raccoons, and other larger animals. Customers who report problems with larger game may have better luck contacting animal control.

No Termite Control

While the company does provide comprehensive bed bug treatment, the same can’t be said for termite control. Termites can be the source of major structural damage in a home and require a specialized team for treatment, removal, and repair. Leading pest control companies like Terminix make termite control a priority for both residential and commercial ventures.

Limited Availability

Rove Pest Control is only available in four states: Minnesota, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Massachusetts. Its mosquito and tree service, meanwhile, is only available in Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Massachusetts. Promoting verified Rove Pest Control reviews from actual customers can be an effective way for the company to spread the word about its expertise and service quality.

The Bottom Line

Home and business owners living within Rove Pest Control’s service area can expect expert-driven pest control, quality seasonal treatments, and thorough specialty services for both interiors and exteriors. The company is only available in a few states, and customers looking for help with wildlife or termites will need to look elsewhere.

Rove Pest Control Frequently Asked Questions

Does the company have an Associate Certified Entomologist?

Yes, Rove has multiple staff members who have achieved this level of certification along with other specialty credentials. 

Why is having an Associate Certified Entomologist important?

Many companies just achieve the minimum requirements to operate. Having an Associate Certified Entomologist shows that the company keeps people in place that are looking to learn the latest and greatest in the world of pest control. Having more knowledge at the foundation of your home, business, and families protection is valuable.

Does having pest control service help or hurt the value of my home?

Having pest control in place helps protect the value of the home. Whether you are considering disease carrying pests, rodents chewing through wires, or carpenter ants excavating galleries in the walls, there are plenty of pest threats that are good to keep away. Additionally, having a service record helps provide peace of mind for new buyers at the time of transfer. 

What if I don’t have any pests right now?

You are on the right track and should get something in place to keep it that way. Yards and homes are constantly changing with the seasons as well as the pest populations around the home. Having a plan in place ahead of issues saves money in both service and pest damage avoidance. 

What questions should I ask when choosing a company?

The most important things to find out how the plan will be tailored to your specific needs, what precautions and preparations need to be taken, what to watch out for after service, and if there is a guarantee on service. 

Do you have to have a license to do pest control?

While anyone can perform pest control (technically stepping on a spider is a form of pest control), a pest control license is required to perform pest control service for hire. Certification requirements vary from state to state, but Rove stays ahead of all state requirements with licensing, furthering education, and internal certification.

How do I know if I need regular pest control service?

From phone consultations to web chats to on-site inspections and analysis, Rove digs in to find the answer for you. Some homes just need seasonal monitoring. Some businesses need weekly attention to keep things on track. The company will customize a plan for you that keeps pests off the radar.

Is service guaranteed?

Pests can be tricky, surroundings change, and even weather can cause shifts in pest populations. Rove understands the importance of having coverage for unforeseen circumstances and guarantees their work even if it is a neighbor’s poor decision that drives pests your way. 

Is it safe?

Rove targets the places that pests nest, rest, and travel. This keeps the products out of contact with people and pets. Additionally, the company utilizes products that are designed for use indoors in residences including in sensitive areas such as hospitals, rest homes, and food preparation areas. 

Do I have to be home for service?

Most pests can be completely treated from the exterior. Rove has several tools that allows it to access the cracks and crevices that insects, arachnids, and rodents use to access the home. This allows the company's professionals to get products where the creatures are nesting and penetrating as well as treat the source population. With its exterior services, Rove guarantees the inside so you can have peace of mind knowing you can call the company back if anything needs to be addressed inside.

I called to report bugs around my windows on May 6 and a technician was out to my house the following day to treat the issue. He was very polite and identified the bug as a clover mite very quickly. He proceeded to treat the affected areas and was efficient and effective in his work.

That is great to hear, thanks for sharing. It is amazing how many of those clover mites can pop out of seemingly nowhere all at once. Keep us posted if they need any more of our attention. Have a great day!

Bill is a great tech. Came to the door and showed tremendous care and consideration for our dog. Then he did a very thorough job of spraying our foundation, shrubs, trees and deck. We have been using Rove for 3 years now and the difference is incredible. We can actually enjoy our back deck without being attacked by mosquitos!

Customer service is extremely responsive; no long wait times. Technicians are extremely knowledgeable and listen to concerns well. Offers free services in between regular services. It seems like they offer a fuller range of pest control services compared to other companies I am aware of. They do mosquitoes, ticks, carpenter ants, carpenter bees, mice, voles, moles, and everything else every company does.
