About Earthwise Pest Management
Earthwise Pest Management has a passion for providing long-term pest management solutions for the Sacramento area. Our owner Joe Hawkins is a second generation Pest Management Professional. He grew up around the industry and developed a keen understanding of pests and home pest control at an early age.
After working for several companies out of high school, Joe decided he wanted to start a pest control company where the focus was on Integrated Pest Management and responsible pest removal and exclusion. So Earthwise Pest Management was formed. Earthwise Pest Management is a company that genuinely understands pest management methods. We are always educating ourselves with current technologies and the latest in products.
Our Team of Professionals

That’s what helps differentiate us as a commercial pest management and residential pest control company in Sacramento.
Now that you’ve learned a little bit more about the individuals that make up our team take some time to learn about the approach that we take with pest control problems. While the quality of our team members is one of the components that differentiate us from other pest control companies, our approach is another significant reason that choosing to work with our pest control company is so beneficial.
Our Pest Control Methods
Earthwise Pest Management uses a process called Integrated Pest Management (IPM). IPM is an environmentally responsible system of managing pests by eliminating their sources of food, water, and shelter. IPM incorporates three steps: inspection, identification, and treatment. Our focus is on the inspection and identification steps so that we can provide you with a thorough and successful treatment. Keep reading to get a better understanding of our method and what you can anticipate when you select Earthwise Pest Management as your pest control company.
The first step of our process is a thorough inspection of your space and the infestation. Primarily, this inspection focuses on our team locating the breeding sites of the pest and finding their harborage areas. The areas that pests make a home and breed in tells us a lot about how future infestations could be avoided, what drew them there in the first place, and will be a crucial piece in our team determining how to best treat the infestation.
Our inspections truly are detailed — we look at every component and factor that could contribute to the start of the infestation. Integrated pest management focuses on removing the key elements that draw pests to a place in order to use minimal pesticides while treating an infestation, but also so that infestations don’t happen later on.
To provide you with the very best results, our team may ask you some questions about the place where the infestation is taking place so that we can fully understand the circumstances. The more information that we can collect, the better results we’ll be able to provide you with.
Every pest is going to need a different form of treatment. That being said, the second piece of IPM is pest identification. This step is crucial to determine the best treatment and provide you with prevention techniques for the future. While most infestations will make it evident as to which pest you’re dealing with, there is still quite a bit of identification that needs to be done.
One of the first things that we need to determine when we identify a pest is the specific type of pest at hand. While you may know that there is a rodent issue that you’re struggling with, we need to determine what kind of rodent to recognize dangers and determine the best treatment. We will also try to identify how mature the infestation is so that we can adequately tackle the problem.
Once our team has collected all of the information that we need, it’s time to move on to the final step: treatment procedure and prevention techniques. It’s important to note that our team might come to you with a variety of techniques and prevention measures to adequately tackle the infestation at hand.
Integrated pest management strives to minimize the use of pesticides while fully focusing on changes that can be made to eliminate the pests and reduce the chances of them returning in the future. Some of the common treatments and suggestions that we’ll make are installing or repairing screens, sealing up cracks or patching up holes, changing sanitation practices, and the like.
Depending on the items that attracted the pests to your home or business in the first place, our team will work together to compile ways that you can make the space less appealing to pests later on. If you have any questions about the treatments or proactive steps that we bring to the table, feel free to ask us, and we can provide you with more information on why we made the suggestion and how the problem at hand contributed to the infestation.
Follow Up Maintenance & Management
Since integrated pest management strives to remove pesticides from the picture, we do always suggest routine follow up with our team of professionals. We will work tirelessly to ensure that conditions are being managed and cared for so that infestations don’t continue to happen. Each time that we visit your location, we will walk through the same steps so that each instance is treated uniquely and taken care of accordingly.

Selecting a Pest Control Company
Choosing a pest control company in Sacramento is an important choice that needs to be thought out. You need to determine if the organization is a quality company with exceptionally prepared, capable, and friendly professionals. As you begin to search for the right company for your needs, you may start to notice that there are endless options for you to choose from. The following points that we’re going to cover can help narrow down the available options so that you feel confident in the choice that you make.

Regardless of the pest that you are dealing with, finding a pest control company that has years of experience under their belt can ensure that you’re confident in your choice.

Pest control isn’t rocket science, but it is science. A thorough knowledge of pests, their climates, and the circumstances necessary for them to thrive is something that every pest control professional should have. Unfortunately, that’s not always the case.
As you begin the search for the right pest control professional, you should always inquire about the knowledge that they have in regards to pests. A part of this will be tied to their experience, but you should also ask about the training and education that back up their knowledge of pests.
Knowledge is a crucial piece of being able to provide customers with the pest-free results that they want, especially when it comes to companies using the IPM approach.
If you’re fine doing the legwork to find the right company, but you need a little bit of reassurance, reviews are one of the best ways to find a qualified company. Finding a reputable company becomes much easier when you have the chance to look at the experiences that some people have in the past. Whether it’s the customer service that you can expect or the results that individuals had with the treatments, it’s always good to check out reviews.
