Our company manages a winning team of talented individuals who take pride in their work and effort and who believe in building personal relationships and genuine connections between staff members, technicians, and those they serve.

Familiarize yourself with our technicians below to see why California Exterminators Alliance remains one of the highest-rated weed and pest control companies in Sonoma County, CA.



Tom Dodd first moved to Lake County in 1983. He truly loves where he lives. In 1992 Tom started working at California Exterminators Alliance (CEA). He quickly became a Field Representative and Pest Control Operator. While remaining a property owner in Kelseyville, Tom briefly left the company to go earn enough money to purchase the company. Tom did just that and purchased the company in 2010. California Exterminators Alliance has been a family-owned company since its inception in 1938. His is the third family to take pride in maintaining great customer service. When California first started licensing pest control, CEA was first in line. California Exterminators Alliance has the first license in the state, PR#1. Tom takes pride in his technical knowledge of the business and finds joy in each customer relationship. Tom grew up wanting to be a philanthropist. Tom believes owning California Exterminators Alliance is instrumental in his being able to give back to our community. Tom is a member of the Rotary Club of Kelseyville Sunrise and has sponsored other non-profits in the area, including Lake County Wine Alliance and Hospice of Lake County.

Ramon Acosta is a local, having attended Kelseyville High School. Prior to joining us in 2012, Ramon worked on Clear Lake treating for weeds during the long, hot summers.

Travis Nieto has been with us since 2014, moving from Registered Applicator to Field Representative, and is now serving in the operations manager position. Travis first joined us after working with the state doing weed control on our wonderful lake. He is a fellow business owner, an active voice for our community with school and government participation, and he continues to enjoy keeping our community safe from pests.


Victor Young takes point as our amazing ant man. While he may prefer DC Comics characters, we think of him as our ant man. He can find the ant trail and trace it back to the colony with accuracy for a decisive decision on how to treat them.


Arturo Torres moved his family to beautiful Lake County in June 2018 after decades in Southern California. He appreciates being a part of our community. He stepped into his role with a quiet voice. Now he enjoys sharing his laughter and welcomes the opportunity to educate our community on the eradication of pests. As a licensed Field Representative, Arturo is able to identify pests and educate customers to help keep their homes and families safe.

Max Whitaker is a true local and graduated from Kelseyville High School. He joined our family team on April Fool's Day in 2021, no joke. He has quickly learned to apply his abilities from the academic decathlon to learn pest and weed control. Max has recently become a Field Representative. We do ask him to bring in his sax to show us skills about which we have only heard rumors. We hope he can become the equivalent of the Pied Piper (who calls rodents to their death) for spiders. Max on the Sax, the Spider Slayer.
