California Pest Control Bond

For those looking to run a pest control company in California, pest control bonds are an important part of the business registration process. The California Department of Consumer Affairs has a Structural Pest Control Board that requires these surety bonds. They help to ensure that pest control businesses use pesticides appropriately, and give a path for recourse to those that have been adversely affected by any malpractice by these companies. In short, these surety bonds are used as a way for the state to protect its citizens and the environment.

California Pest Control Bond Basics

Just like other types of surety bonds, there are three parties involved in a pest control bond:

  • The obligee is the entity that requires the bond. In this case, it's the state of California.
  • The principal is the business that needs to be bonded, or the pest control company in this scenario.
  • The surety serves as the underwriter of the bond, and steps in to resolve issues when there is a valid claim made against the bond.

These three parties work together to provide peace-of-mind to the obligee and the interests that it represents. In addition, the surety bond is a way for the principal to show that they stand behind their work and are dedicated to providing a quality service.

The first step for a pest control company to legally do business in California is to obtain a license. These licenses typically last for two years. To become licensed, the applicant first has to acquire a California pest control permit surety bond. You'll want to contact your local governing agency to determine the specific requirements that apply to your business, but the following surety bond requirements can get you started:

  • $4,000 bond for Structural Pest Control
  • $5,000 bond for Maintenance Gardeners
  • $50,000 bond for Aerial Pest Control
  • $75,000 bond for Ground/Fumigations
