He was so helpful with our mouse situation!! He dove right in and began solving the problem. He kept us in the loop the whole time! We even paid above what he said we owed, just because we felt his work was worth the additional compensation! I'd absolutely only use him in the future!!Oct 30, 2014Verified
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I continually need to take continuing education classes approved by the Colorado Department of Agriculture. These classes allow me to renew my license. Without these classes I would not be able to get the insurance which is required by the State of Colorado, one million dollars total.
- What types of customers have you worked with?Inspection, Inspection and more Inspection. Inspecting all apartments in apartment complexes on a regular cycle is required to help prevent infestations of pests from spreading. This means checking with flashlights under, around and in kitchen sinks, appliances, counters and cupboards for roaches, ants and mice. This means examing beds, mattresses, box spings, chairs, recliners, couches and other furniture for bed bugs. These are just some examples of what is involved.
- Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?a recent job involved a resident of a senior apartment building. The manager of the building presented me with samples of an insect that they couldn't identify. I immediatly identified the insect as a saw-toothed grain beetle, not uncommon in senior residences. I told the manager I would inspect the property and arranged to speak with the resident. What I found is a heavy infestation of beetles in and around a big box of Bisquick. Asking the resident when he last used any of the product used for baking, he answere, "Oh, I don't think I have used that for over 8 years". Explaining to the resident that simply disposing of grain products such as this and vacuuming out his cupboards and drawers, the problem would go away withouth the use of any chemicals. He did and they did - go away. Problem solved.
