Pest Control

In pest control and prevention one size does not fit all. Every home, every property and every neighborhood can be different.  We inspect all three and make customized recommendations based on your needs. Outside perimeter treatments are the key to the elimination of inside pests. We treat from property line to property line to deliver the best results. Inside treatments can be frequent or infrequent depending on the circumstance and severity of the infestation.

Termite Control

Termites are usually very harmful despite the fact that they are just small insects. The main reason why they are so harmful is that they come in hundreds, and they can cause major damage within a short time. They primarily attack and feed on wood, but they can also damage books, papers, insulations, filtration systems, and even swimming pool liners. They usually invade buildings in places where even the homeowners can stay for a long time without noticing that they are there.

Bed Bug Control

Having bed bugs is traumatic. They cause sleepless nights, stress and bring disorder to an ordinary home. Cypress Critters & Pests treat bed bug infestations using the safest chemicals available. A proper treatment plan requires a thorough home inspection so that a determination can be made on the type and scope of the treatment. The treatment products that are used by Cypress Critters & Pests are safe when applied properly and will not harm children or pets.

How much fun is this!

We love what we do.  We are all people who get up every day and just cannot wait to go out on our next call.  Everyone who works with us at Cypress Critters and Pests has expressed and shown us that they actually love taking care of our customers and working to make your pest and critter problems go away.

The Chase

We love the chase.  Just give us an idea what sort of varmint you have running loose in your home and you will see a big smile come on to our faces.  Let the chance begin.  We will take every care to be gentle with your home, but we will find the little menace that is banging around in your home uninvited.


Animal Exclusion, or Critter Exclusion is the process of blocking access for critters into your home.   During the chase to find your varmints, it is second nature to find all the areas that they are accessing your home.  We will show you the little and not so little places where they have their way with your attic and crawl spaces.  Our experience leads us right to the little guys most times.  We will find them, then professionally block, and cut off any further access to your property.

Frequently Asked Questions

There is a multitude of questions that people ask when needing pest control, critter control, animal exclusion, and termite extermination.  We are here to answer any and all questions or concerns you may have. Some of the questions we hear a lot are listed on the right.   If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to call us and we will be happy to assist you in any way we can.


In most circumstances we do our best to treat the animals we track and cage as humanely as possible.  We try to relocate them by using all legal channels we have available to us.  We love animals and only want to get them out of your home.

What is your turn around time?

We strive to get your services done as soon as possible.  We have our trucks equiped with everything we have needed in past pest control and critter control situations we have come across in our years of experience doing this work.  We can typically get to work immediately upon approval from you to do the work.

After being told by another Critter Control company, that it was going to cost $7,000 to rid my home of approximately 60-80 roof rats, whose presence in my home was probably causing irreparable health damage to my family and me, I decided to call around for more information. I got three other quotes which were all a small fraction of what the first Critter Control company wanted. Cypress Critters and Pests was my best offer and when you consider the customer service you are getting, you are getting a real DEAL. Michael and his wife are accommodating, down to earth, fun, and above all else simply want to get anything that crawls out of your house (minus children and pets) and they pride themselves in doing just that. Scheduling was easy, and I haven’t heard any other noises. And I know that if I did, I could call them back, and they would be right out immediately. Oh, and Michael informed me that there may be a few rats that got in, but they haven’t been there very long, and it’s not an infestation. As I was losing it thinking of rats in our house (just moved here from the Midwest, and I’ve NEVER heard of anyone having roof rats, though it’s pretty common around here) Michael quoted me for an antibacterial spray and clean up and said that he has referrals for people who could redo insulation but insisted that it was not necessary and that he wouldn’t recommend it. But of course, he would be happy to do it if it made me feel more comfortable. That’s pretty upstanding in my book. Since moving here, I’ve found very few companies that offer exceptional work and customer care. I have been full out scammed three times and I have felt like I can’t trust anyone. These guys you can trust. Give them a call.

Just had a really great experience with Cypress Critters and Pests. Mike came out today and did our first treatment. He was on time, courteous and very thorough (the other pest company was in/out in 20 minutes), but Mike stayed much longer (he went up into the attic, treated our soffits and every little nook and cranny). The treatment for fire ants and termites costs a little extra, but is good for a full year. The other thing I liked is that he said he would send me a text in 3 months and see if we wanted him to come out, but that if we didn’t feel like we needed it that we could just say “no, thanks”. Our former pest company would send out a postcard (or claim they did) and if we weren’t home would just spray the outside, call it a day and send us an invoice. Mike said they would never do that, and only come by if we requested at the time of the text (if he doesn’t receive an answer from our text, they won’t come out). Overall, a very good first experience. I would recommend Cypress Critters and Pests without hesitation. If you need to see other good experiences with them, check out their yelp page (that’s how I found them), they get very good reviews.

Cypress Critters and Pests treated my business property and my home this past summer, and I am glad to report that to date, the only bugs I see are dead because the treatment is still working, even after all of the rain we had. Michael is a great guy and does a terrific job. 5 Stars all the way.

Working with a family owned business is 10x better than dealing with Terminix or Orkin. Call Michael, he’s a pro.  Google Reviews

We have a large commercial warehouse building in a rural area. The rural part = lots of spiders and bugs. Rheanan came out and gave us a consult for our issue. She was extremely knowledgeable and knew exactly what needed to be done to eliminate our problem. We set up an appointment for her to come out and perform the recommended service. She showed up and made those bugs her b!&$%. We saw immediate results and the next morning, there were dead insects in places we did not expect. It has been a few weeks and we continue to see results. We are incredibly impressed with how effective her solution has worked. I recommend Cypress Critters and Pests for any of your commercial or residential needs. We are definitely going to use their service again and will have them out to our home as well. They are very knowledgeable and professional. Plus, the customer service is stellar. Ditch your other guys and call them! Yelp Review

Excellent service from Cypress Critters and Pests. Our home was invaded by varmints in our attic, we were very concerned. Michael was very personable and professional. He made his recommendations and took care of all the varmints and squirrels. Thank you, Michael, we are your customers for life.  Thank You!

Michael is seriously the best! I actually found him on Yelp, in a pinch, due to birds getting into my stove vent duct work. He was so knowledgeable and friendly and really fair with pricing. He responded promptly to my message and came out that same day. We ended up having him do an exclusion on our home to keep other critters out! He is really hard working and is just a person you want to give your business to and refer friends! He took the extra step by going to Home Depot, buying our new stove duct (AND taking our old one home and cleaning it out!!), and helped us install it – the very next day. I would recommend him to anyone needing pest control. I’m honestly going to switch pest control companies (including quarterly maintenance) to have Michael do it, because I can honestly say- I know and trust he will do a great job! Hands down, I would highly recommend!! Google Review

Houston is the most populous city in Texas and the Southern United States. Founded by land speculators back in 1836, it was incorporated as a city a year later. This vibrant city holds a lot to its name including being home to NASA, the clutch Rockets and the Houston Texans. Houston continues to grow both in size as well as in culture. Below are some interesting aspects and facts about Houston that you may not know about.

1. It Has One of the Best Culinary Scenes

Houston boasts of more than ten thousand restaurants and eateries. It has the best food scene in the country. Cuisines from more than seventy countries and American regions are available throughout the city. From ramen places to food trucks to healthy choices, Houston has it all when it comes to food.
Houstonians eat out more timers per week than in any other American city.

This is attributed to the city’s culinary scene. In addition, the cost of an average meal is less than the national average. This is probably why the residents seem to eat out more than the typical American.

2. Hurricanes helped in Houston’s Development

An unusual fact about Houston is that Hurricanes were influential in its early growth. Houston was not a big city at the turn of the 20th century. Galveston was the population center of the Gulf coast at the time.
However, the Great Storm of 1900 forced Galveston inhabitants to move further inland before rebuilding. Houston witnessed exponential growth from the influx of migrants from Galveston Island.

3. Over 100 Languages Are Spoken In Houston

Back in 2012, Houston overtook New York and Los Angeles as the most ethnically diverse metropolitan area in the country. Naturally, this means that are a lot of languages that are spoken in this city; over 145 different languages and dialects to be precise.

In terms of the number of languages spoken, Houston only falls behind Los Angeles and New York. The most prevalent languages in the area are English and Spanish. However, you will encounter people speaking Hindu, Chinese, Vietnamese, Mandarin, German, and even Tagalog.

4. Houston Hosts the Biggest Rodeos in the World

Houston is home to one of the biggest rodeo events in the world. The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo is a month-long event that draws in millions of attendees. The event is held every year, and features live performances, carnivals, rodeos, and games.

5. The First Word Spoken On the Moon Was Houston

The Johnson Space Centre and Mission Control are located in Houston. When Apollo 11 astronauts first contacted Earth, they were talking to mission control personnel in Houston. The first statement they broadcasted back to earth was, “Houston, the Eagle has landed.” This officially makes Houston the first word to be spoken on the moon.

6. Many Streets Are Named After WW1 Veterans

The older parts of Houston have a large number of the streets that are named after hometown heroes. These are soldiers from Houston who lost their lives fighting in The Great War. For instance, Dunlavy in Montrose is named after Herbert Dunlavy who was the first Houstonian to die in the war. Overall, Houston is a great city and is renowned for its multiculturalism making it one of the best cities to reside in. Space City boasts of an interesting and rich history as well as diverse culture.
