Introduction: Hello my name is Frank Whitaker. I have been a Technician providing rodent control services in the Bay Area since 2018. In that time I have provided services for over 400 hundred homes. I offer all new clientele a free inspection. I do thorough inspections and go over my findings with you on how to correct the problem areas, allowing you the best price on resolving your situation. I bid my services only on the required amount of work needed being sealed, not by the size of the building. My main goal is providing a service that alleviates the mental stressors that are caused from their presence. To provide a safe and secure lifestyle that all families want and need. I offer Senior Citizen discounts.

Frank and team are incredible. He came out and assessed our situation, and then sealed our home as if it were his own. I cannot recommend their services highly enough. Will use again (if we ever need it!) without hesitation.

Thumbtack only allows you to choose up to 3 items when reviewing a company. They are Work Quality, Professionalism, Responsiveness, Value, and Punctuality. If I could I would select all 5. Below are the reasons why. We had an issue with some mice getting into our 121 year old house located in Russian Hill. So, I called in three companies to get bids. I ended up choosing Productive Rodent Proofing because Frank was extremely thorough in his pre-bid inspection and his bid was more than fair. For the pre-bid inspection when he arrived to inspect, he walked with me and pointed out entry points and areas I had no idea were there. he showed me gaps in doors and walls... We spent almost an hour or so just walking the house and looking at areas of concern. On the day of service Frank arrived with his helper Carmen and together they spent over 8 hours vacuuming, cleaning, sanitizing, sealing and setting traps. Today I walked around and checked these traps and see no activity. This could be because he was so thorough in sealing that he scared them out before sealing the house. I'm extremely pleased with what this cost in comparison to another SF Rodent control company and a big name "we need you company". Thanks Productive Rodent Proofing.

We chose Frank at PRP to help us with our rat problems because he really wanted to understand the problem before signing a contract. He crawled through a pretty disgusting crawlspace to scope out the problem before giving us a quote, compared to other pest control companies that just took a glance from the outside and immediately gave us a number. The initial cleanup, sealing, and trapping went very smoothly - he even gave us a refund on extra materials that weren't needed. Lastly, his follow up has been incredible. I had some security cameras that we set up in the crawl space and he would drop by promptly if I saw that rats found their way back in. Our house is on a hill so the crawlspace/foundation is complicated but Frank has always patiently come up with new solutions to prevent the rats from getting in.

Frank did a great job sealing up my house and setting up rat traps in my attic. He even has a camera on the traps so he can regularly check the traps. I will definitely hire him again!

I had a fantastic experience with Frank at Productive Rodent Proofing. He was super thorough from the get go, so that my rodent problem was solved quickly. Frank did regular on-site check ins, monitored activity remotely, and charged me a very fair price. Frank knows his stuff, and I would recommend him to anyone.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I offer Senior Citizen discounts. I also have been giving COVID Relief discounts to clients that are having employment issues.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have been working in construction since 18 years old. I have done work in a lot of different trades. I did electrical work for 20 years, other trades plumbing, roofing, irrigation, landscaping, carpentry. I am familiar with the way homes are structured. All these skills combined allows me the ability to find where the entry points that are unwanted guests have mastered in getting into your sacred space.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    I have been crawling thru attics and under houses doing trade work and have had to deal with sharing the same space with these intruders. Done it so much that I just ignored them. Never gave it a thought to make it a profession. My Brother-in-law, was needing help with his pest control business and offered me a position. I took him up and the work is in such high demand I decided to give it a shot. I have been doing Pest Control services since. I bring new technology into my work and have been tracking and eliminating them with great success.
