About Us

Guard Pest Control is a family owned and operated pest control provider bringing safe and effective home pest control and commercial pest control services across Washington state and now in Houston, TX.

We believe in putting people first. Not only our employees and their families, but also, YOU, the customer. People is why we do what we do. We just happen to be really great at getting rid of pests as well.

Our Story

Guard Pest Control was founded in 2013 by Kevin Taylor. Kevin has worked in pest control for over 20 years, bringing a wealth of experience and knowledge about the pest control industry with him and helping us grow into the business we have become. In the time since our founding, our team has only grown better and more effective as we continue to incorporate new and emerging pest control tools and techniques into our toolkit.

Now branching off into the greater Houston, Texas area, Kevin has partnered up with longtime friend, Joe Henrickson who operates the new branch in Houston.

Following our simple motto of Inspect, Correct, Protect, we have been able to help hundreds of clients in our service area eliminate their active pest problems while keeping them protected for the future.

Why Choose Guard Pest Control

Guard Pest Control is more than just a pest control company. We believe firmly of ourselves as a family, and we carry that family-oriented approach into all of our dealings with our community.

Rather, we provide long-term protection so that you can enjoy a pest-free home or business not just today but well into the future.

Our Houston pest treatment plans and the bio-pesticide products we use help ensure that. We see ourselves not as a simple business selling you a product but as a partner you can trust to protect your investment. When we partner with our community and serve them with excellent service they can’t get anywhere else, everybody wins. That’s why more residents choose Guard Pest Control.

Integrated Pest Management

Guard Pest Control is a proud adherent to the concept of Integrated Pest Management (IPM), a sustainable, science-based, decision-making process that combines biological, cultural, physical and chemical tools to identify, manage and reduce risk from pests and pest management tools and strategies in a way that minimizes overall economic, health and environmental risks.

Using the IPM approach, we shift our focus away from simply killing the pests around your home or business using any means necessary and instead take a holistic approach to pest control. We care about the environment, and we have tailored our processes to reflect that. The extensive training we give our technicians, combined with our access to some of the best tools and equipment in the industry, allow us to create pest control solutions that are harmful to pests - and only pests. When you get service from Guard Pest Control, we don’t just guard you, we guard Earth too!

More About Us

Inspecting for pests in Houston


Every service begins with a complete inspection. Sure, you may know that you are dealing with ants, but do you know that getting rid of them for good may depend on what type of ants they are? How about rodents? There is a huge difference in how you eliminate a Norway rat issue vs a roof rat problem. The inspection will guide the next steps to address active issues and prevent future issues.

A complete inspection will address conducive conditions that contribute to the pest problems.

correcting issues in Houston


Correcting conducive conditions is the first step in resolving any pest issues. Long term solutions and effective pest control require a comprehensive plan depending on the specific situation and conditions. For example -you cannot eliminate a rodent issue if you don't seal up their entry points.

Structural issues in a home are the number one reasons that customers struggle with pests. Sanitation is a close second. Some of the things that are normal habit to us help to create the perfect environment for pests. Correction of these issues is crucial to long term resolution.

Effective treatment plans utilize targeted treatment and specific application to resolve the pest issue in a manner that is conscious of protecting your family, home, and environment.

protecting your home in Houston


Once the initial infestation is resolved and conducive conditions are addressed we recommend a proactive plan to ensure a pest free home and property.

Our Home Guard Protection Plans offer your choice of three levels of affordable ongoing protection that will protect your property from future infestations.

Customers all around Northwest Houston, from Katy to the Woodlands choose protection plans that regularly address seasonal pest issue and prevent bothersome future infestations.


What Customers
Are Saying

review by customer in Katy, TX

Joe was AMAZING. He was very professional and was able to come inspect our house within less than 24 hours of my initial request. He was thorough in searching our house for our rodent issue and it was apparent that he is an expert. He explained everything to us in a respectful manner and helped us come up with a "game plan" on how to prevent the rodent issue from ever happening again. I will be recommending him to everyone I know who needs an exterminator!!

review by customer in Spring, TX

Joe was very helpful and informative. He not only did a very detailed inspection of my home, he also taught us what to look for in the future as well as what steps we can take in our travels to help prevent bringing these insects home.
Thankfully we were bed bug free, however, I would have gladly used his services if needed. The process he uses for extermination is superior to any other company I contacted before we chose this company. I will recommend this company to my friends and family for their exceptional services.
