Coronavirus: Message to Our Customers


Richard Estrada, President/Operator of ATCO Pest Control

On March 19, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) director, Christopher Krebs, published a “Memorandum on Identification of Essential Critical Infrastructure Workers During the COVID-19 Response” that confirms pest control is an essential industry during the new coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

ATCO understands that a “Shelter in Place” order has been issued for 7 Bay Area Counties as of March 16th. As a pest control company, we are considered an essential business under the public health order and will remain open for the time being. We completely honor the requests of all who elect to cancel or postpose pest management appointments and will continue in our service to the community.

We’re very sensitive to the needs of our customers and will provide help where needed in order to keep the community safe and clean. We take this very seriously and have increased our cleaning protocol and provided sanitizing kits to use throughout.

From everyone at ATCO, we hope that you, your friends, and family are staying safe and healthy during these challenging times.

We know that most of you have had to adjust your lifestyle. As you’re adjusting to all these changes, one form of normalcy that you can find solace in is that ATCO Pest Control will continue to provide pest management services.

What you can count on from ATCO:

  • If a pest emergency arises, you can be assured we will be here to respond and assist you. We’ve developed procedures and utilize products which allows occupants to remain in their place of residence during most of our pest management services
  • We enjoy helping our community and we can offer peace of mind during these crazy times
  • Be reassured that we have put procedures in place to protect both you and our staff

In following recommendations from the CDC, all of our technicians and employees are using sanitizing kits to keep up with our new and improved disinfecting protocol. Be assured that with everything we do, it’s always eco-friendly.

Most importantly, we want to make sure that first and foremost you, as our customer, feel comfortable and safe.

ATCO Pest Control will continue to be open for business during this difficult time.
