5 Stars all the way. Had a mice problem infestation.From the 1st line of contact to the last. They gave me a window time frame were right on time. The tech was highly professional, intuitive, knowledgeable and gave me insights and advice with regards to my problem. And he even laughed at some of my lame jokes as I was embarrassed seeing that we had a problem.. He sealed the holes , placed bait pellets and used a dust repellent to combat the problem.Overall I was pleased with the price and the service.. I am having them do a revisit again next month.Sep 4, 2018Verified
Luis is a hero. Kind, honest, reliable hero. Rare in the world. We just moved in to a place and discovered that it was infested, something that the owners claimed they did not know and wanted us to wait nearly a week before their exterminator would come. We obviously couldn't wait. Watching all of our stuff become infested. It was labor day weekend, and even then, Luis immediately responded, dropped everything on Sunday morning and came to our place to answer questions, inspect the house, and spray it down. We are not going to let go of this guy anytime soon! Really grateful we found him. Amazing service. Amazing knowledge.Sep 3, 2018Verified
The service was quick, the exterminator was knowledgeable, and afterwards, I had a longer term plan to follow. I recommend this company to anyone looking for pest control.Sep 1, 2018Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?The average cost to hire an Exterminator for insect control service averages between $150 and $250 depending on the problem. Hiring us is the best way to rid your home of pests, not just convince them to stay out of your sight. If you are concerned about the cost of calling us to take care of your pest problem, here are a few things to consider. Some insects are wood-boring. (TERMITES) (RATS) (CARPET BEETLES) just to name a few. They can damage your house’s structure and cost you tens of thousands of dollars in repair, or can make your home structurally unlivable. Stinging and biting insects can range from merely painful and uncomfortable to most. Many household pests carry diseases such as salmonella (cockroaches) (mice and rats). Even a bug as harmless as a fly will leave eggs and feces in your food. While you may know enough to avoid dangerous insects like rodents, or bedbugs, but your children and pets may not. These are just some of the reasons to call us. Not only can they save you money, we can give you peace of mind! One-Time Removal or Contract? If you have never had an insect problem in your home before and very suddenly you start to see the signs, you can call in for a one-time extermination. However, if you start to notice that you have an ongoing insect problem, you may opt to hire an exterminator on a contract basis. In these cases, you would pay a monthly, or sometimes quarterly fee for the pro to come to your home on a scheduled basis to stop any type of insect infestation before it begins...or begins again! You may pay more for a contract over the years, but if it keeps the pests away permanently it is well worth the cost. The cost of a service depends on certain factors: the frequency of the visit, the size of the home, and the type of pest(s) causing the problem. One-Time The typical one-time bedbugs is around $200.00 to $550.00. This cost is higher than most listed averages because it is a one-time visit only. In these cases, there is usually a lot of work to be done including assessment of the infestation, finding the lair, and identifying entry points into your home or apt.

- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?FYI, Insects such as roaches and ants can be a terrible problem throughout your home, but often go undetected for a long time. Eventually you will have a real infestation on your hands. You may have tried some DIY pest control with products such as boric acid, ant traps, “roach motels”, or any number of commercially available sprays like Raid, Black Flag, or Ortho. Some of these can be effective when the pests are first noticed, such as when you first spot a small hornet’s nest. In other cases, such as combatting ant or roach infestations, all they can do is hold the line. They don’t take the battle back to the pests’ lairs. Please call us when an estimate or request a quote I'm sure it'll be cheaper than you think it will. Thank you for considering us.
