We had an excellent experience with Cruz - we'll definitely be reaching out to him again if we ever have any rodent problems in the future. Our problem started on a Wednesday morning - we found a baby mouse in our sink. This we took care of ourselves. On Thursday night, while we were getting ready to sleep, we caught sight of a mouse running into our fireplace, which we quickly barricaded. 5 minutes after that we heard scratching in on the piece of wood that we used to block off the barricade, so we knew it was still in there. 30 minutes later, we saw another mouse run into our kitchen, that's when we blocked off the bottom of the doors around the house. At this point, it means we had at least 3 mice in the house (the baby one in the sink, the one that's trapped in the fireplace, and the one that ran into the kitchen). Friday morning, I went to the hardware store and set up 8 sticky traps baited with peanut butter around the house before work. But, we knew this wasn't enough so we decided to look for a professional. We initially found Cruz on Thumbtack - we contacted him Friday afternoon, and he came to do a free inspection on Saturday - the next day he came over again to patch up a couple problem spots we had inside our unit. After he took care of the problems inside of our unit (fireplace, behind the kitchen sink, behind the toilet), we went around the outside of the house and realized the problem was much larger than we initially thought - one side of the house was pretty much completely exposed at the ground level. Not only were there a myriad of entry/exit points for rodents, we had alot of pipes and also power meters that were in front of these problem spots. Cruz ended up coming up with a pretty elegant solution - he covered everything up. Where we had power meters and valves that would need to be accessible in the future, Cruz and his colleague installed the wire mesh as panels that could be easily removed by unscrewing a few bolts. Ever since Cruz stopped by, we haven't had any more activity, no more droppings and nothing on the traps. Cruz was very easy to work with and gave us a very reasonable rate. He responded quickly, showed up when he said he would, communicated clearly, and effectively rodent-proofed our house. He stopped by yesterday on a follow up visit to check on the traps (nothing yet). I HIGHLY recommend Cruz if you're having any type of rodent issue.
If I could give ESI Repairs & Upgrades ten stars, I would. I called Shlomi on Saturday and they came to my house at 9:00 a.m. Monday to clean my dryer vent before a new dryer arrived. My two-year-old dryer died last week, and the appliance repairman said that a clogged dryer vent could have caused it to work too hard, or it could be a lemon of an appliance. My handyman had cleaned the lower part of the dryer vent several times over the years, even just one year ago, but did not have the equipment to reach all the way to the vent on the roof. Shlomi fromESI Repairs & Upgrades was friendly, courteous, professional and communicative. The first issue He ran into was that the dryer vent in my house is rectangular, so it didn't accommodate the new circular equipment they planned to use. He quickly went to Plan B and gathered long houses and suction equipment from their vehicle. He worked non-stop for over an hour in my laundry room, and running back and forth outside to see if any lint was coming out yet from the vent on the top of the roof. We were all shocked by the large amount of lint they kept removing. Shlomi explained that my dryer vent has bends in it that can trap the lint. Even when the lint started to come out the vent on my roof, He still detected lint at the top of the vent.He Was very concerned that this could still pose a fire risk to my house. Even though my home is one story and the original plan was to avoid going on the roof, He felt strongly that Shlomi should go on the roof to check the vent. Thank goodness he did. He pulled out large amounts of lint by hand that were stuck in the "T" shape of the roof vent. Before He left, the cleaned up any bits of lint and dirt in my laundry room and the little hall leading to the garage, leaving it cleaner than when they arrived. I will be using this company to keep the dryer vent clear on a regular basis.
I had Bay Pest Solution out to solve my rat issues that I have been battling for many years. I have had pest control with large companies that set traps out which does NOTHING! I have also tried myself to seal but still no success. I purchased an exclusion program with the last company and not only was the work sloppy they could not figure out how they kept getting in. Bay Pest came out quoted me a price that was much less than what I paid 2 years ago with the other company. They found 3 areas in my sub area that know one was able to find. They also cleaned up the sloppy work from the prior job and rebuilt my crawl space door which was just wire meshed by the previous company. They also got rid of all the spray foam and steel wool the other company did, which in my opinion was just cheaply done and was a short term fix to my problem. I was extremely impressed when Rick the technician color matched and painted to hide the concrete work they did. These guys know what they are doing. They installed a one way exit door and I literally heard the rat go out. They are coming back to remove the door and sanitize everything since all the rats are finally gone. Thanks Rick for taking a lot of pride in your work and with your quick response and follow ups.
Niv and team were great. Very professional and I appreciated how Niv kept us up-to-date with the status on the day of service. Highly recommend!
Had other exterminators but none took the trouble to find the entry points. I pretty knew where but a high scary location - only they were willing to go there and patch the entry. Also tightened up gaps in my garage and screened roof exhaust outlets. Set traps but didn't come back to check - doubt any rats were caught because no smell and how could they get in?
Bridgette did a fantastic job for us! Not only did she find a dead mama possum under our house, but found and is now taking care of her little baby that was still alive.that was still alive. She also sprayed the area to get rid of the smell, and closed up access to future surprise visitors. We'd highly recommend her!
RIP PEST CONTROL IS THE BEST. We've had a skunk problem that ended up becoming more and more of a nuisance since we've moved into this house. Skunks and apparently a whole cluster of animals decided to make our crawl space their accommodations for this winter. Something tore its way through the vents outside our house leading straight into the crawl space under the house. These rodents would have these parties and occasionally fights would break out from the sounds emitting from under the house. The skunks won, because after a cluster f k of noises a very pungent smell entered the house all starting from this one area where of the house where this vent opening was. I call it the door to the Hereford club; which by the way shares a wall with the master bedroom my room. Long story short after one early bar room brawl at 7 am waking my heavy sleeping butt up to what sounded like a bunch of high pitch squeaks scratches and screams the skunk unleashed every ounce of smell in that thing ass. It Stunk up the house for five days! My clothes, my room, my tempurpedic, my car in the garage, the guest room, central heating vents, the whole house, backyard, stank stank stank stank stank. I searched 24hr skunk removal that very second and RIP Saved the day... threes hours later got a quote, on the way to work made a call... two skunks, two possums and a cat later... vents are all sealed with heavy gague wire and from what it seems problem eradicated. Anthony was there every step of the way and is a sincere dude. Didn't charge for animials that weren't meant to be caught, did it in a very humane way using live trap Catch and release, his logistics woman manning the phones is efficient as well. Very well ran situation here based off my first impression... and the multiple visits after... not to mention the consistent following up with me to make sure things were going well and the added pest proofing at the end... the man is a ninja of controlling pest! especially stinky ones, without getting sprayed too I seen it with my own eyes... thank god cause one more spray and I would've shot those mo foes! Skunk sloppy joes!
