Review Guidelines

When you consider a product recommendation, trust is essential. You want balanced information based on real-world experience. Here at the Pest Dude, we’re committed to giving you both.

Zachary Smith, the “Pest Dude’, has over 20 years of field experience. He runs his own company, Smith’s Pest Management, serving home and business owners throughout the Bay Area.

Our teams spend hours identifying, evaluating, and reviewing the best products. We only feature those that are the most effective, consistent, and offer the best value for our readers.

Once we’ve identified our list of front-runner recommendations, we conduct in-person interviews or testing to verify that everything we recommend meets our very high standards.

We compare results with other licensed pest control professionals, and we double-check our findings.

Zachary has the final say over featured products. The goal is to give you the knowledge you need to solve pest problems like a pro. It’s our pleasure to put our expertise at your service.

The result is a reliable list of product reviews, how-to guides, and other resources that you can find on our website, which will help you identify the right approaches and solutions for any pest problem you’re facing.

We are a privately owned company and we do not accept money, gifts, coupons, or any other incentives that might impact our reviews.
