We bought a 100 year old 2 story wooden house in the historic district three years ago and GATO came highly recommended.
Lawn, pest and termite inspection and prevention.
We have had zero problems, thankfully, our lawn looks great and reliable service and customer service (thank you Heather!).
5 stars and locally owned, no corporate nonsense.
All the technicians are very polite, especially during the Covid crisis.

Gato Lawn & Pest Control is top notch, with experienced and professional employees who know the process inside and out. I felt very confident moving forward with them, as they explained things in vigorous detail, pointing out things that most homeowners may overlook regarding dry wood termites, and provided a vigorous treatment without leaving a trace. They followed up and validated that treatment was working.

I am thankful to have been paired up with this great company and the services they provided for our home!

When it comes to pest, Gato Gaurd is the best!!! I had professional and personal service for my home for the past year. If I have an issue or problem they are quick to come out and fix it. Diego J. is the best technician hands down here in Central, FL he has gone above and beyond to not just meet but exceed my expectations. He is knowledgeable, professional, and precise. You name it Gato Gaurd can handle it. Give them a call and let them help you with your pest problems.

We purchased a house at the end of 2019 and Gato came highly recommended as there were signs that a WDO was necessary. Inspection went well, they found some concerns but that's what they're paid for.

Fast forward a few months and we find a huge "nest" of ants in the wall. A call to Gato, an inspection, and we are set up for pest control. Nice and easy, as it should be.

Summed up by saying that every interaction with every employee has been an "above and beyond" experience. Call Gato, you won't be disappointed, especially if Derek shows up at your door!

I have both their lawn service and pest control service. They are very professional and so nice. My lawn has never been greener and plush. No bug activity since they've become my pest control and the few times I've found a little activity, all I had to do was call and they had someone come out within a day or two to retreat at no additional cost. I've recommended their services to anyone who asked. My friend had a pretty bad roach issue (the small ones) and since she started using them there's no longer a problem. She thanked me for recommending Gato Guard because nothing else she did worked.
