I contacted Fox Pest Control and they responded right away. Ross took his time to explain their service offering. The technician was timely and explained everything that was going to do. I am looking forward to seeing the results!

I was looking for some preventative pest control having moved into a new construction property surrounded lots of construction activity and farmland. Fox pest control gave me a really good idea for what I should look for and what they would recommend. They were able to schedule quickly and set things up after that. Great pros.

*** Note: This is a review for a yearly service. It's only been a few weeks since my initial contact so this review reflects ONLY MY INITIAL EXPERIENCE with Fox. I will update this review in a few months to reflect the long-term value. *** PROBLEM: After house settling and heavy rains, our usual "couple of ants in the kitchen during summer" became a horror show. 50-100 of the small house ants, plus carpenter ants (never had those before) and finally a colony swarm of 50-100 flying carpenter ants in the kitchen. WHAT I WANTED: A long-term solution for a known cost. I didn't want an unpredictable series of repeat visits with repeated bills. And my service provider had to work within the constraints of our condo and our pet. WHY I SELECTED FOX: Communicative prior to the first visit. Very clear on terms, pricing, and options. Everything they said online and on the phone matched with my online reading. No scare tactics. Offered a package for quarterly visits, with ad-hoc visits included and reviews backed this up. No pressure to do the package; it was my choice. Very clear about timing of technician arrival. THE SERVICE SO FAR: The technician spent as much time as I wanted to, discussing our situation. They educated me further on what was likely going on in my walls. They explored the grounds with me, looking for signs of main nest. They explained all the products they were using (Advion low-toxicity indoor poison, Tandem fast-kill outdoor poison, InTice delayed-action outdoor bait, Advance outdoor bait specifically for carpenter ants.) They worked well within the constraints of condo shared property, and helped me find compromises in poison/bait application that would keep humans and pets safe while aggressively attacking the ants. Explained ant colony behavior and what I could expect after the initial poison application. Finally, the tech displayed proper use of PPE and social distancing during the pandemic; very much appreciated. While I could technically have bought and applied all these myself, I wasn't paying for the products -- I was paying for the expertise in their choice and use. IMPRESSIONS: The tech freely informed me they'd only been with the company for 6 months but had already learned so much from the experiences of their co-workers. That to me spoke to the experience of the company. Additionally, due to a billing/scheduling mix-up at the office, a SECOND tech came out the following day and, since they were there, happily answered a few more questions I'd thought o, and gave an additional indoor application. TL;DR: I wanted someone who would take responsibility for the ant problem so I could focus on the other house problems I'm dealing with. It's too soon to tell for sure but my impressions are that Fox is that. More in a few months.

100% satisfied- excellent service. I went with Fox because of the thoroughness of their explanation of services and they definitely had the best price- their initial service included much more than several others. As far as the service itself, I was really pleased. It was professional, all my questions were answered, showed up on time and was very pleasant. I’ve signed up for their quarterly service because I was so impressed and I really really hate insects in my house!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    First and foremost, there are no hidden or additional fees - what you see is what you get here at Fox. Pricing is always specific to the situation. We do customized treatments, every home and pest situation is different and we don’t want to give service or pricing that risks overcharging or overgeneralizing. Our prices will always be competitive compared to other companies. We don't go as cheap as some of the other companies because we do not do a cheap service. It's the best on the market and yet affordable for everyone. In addition, our customers love that all billing is done through a highly secure platform for their protection. General discounts are always available for veterans and emergency services personnel. Call to see what seasonal or neighborhood discounts we have available for you!

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    First, we find out the problem from the customers’ point of view. Then we talk through how we can best treat the immediate concern and put control measures in place to prevent the issue from returning. We believe in being proactive so that our customers don’t arrive back at square one down the line. We discuss pricing, answer all questions so we’re entirely on the same page, then schedule the service. Our technician arrives ready to treat because we’ve already gone through everything we need ahead of time - unlike other companies that insist on an inspection, then an estimate, then finally a treatment. We don’t want to waste your time and are ready to dive right in to take care of your home.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    We ensure that only the best technicians join our team. We have decades-worth of combined experience in the pest control industry, and our techs are trained on Integrated Pest Management — instead of the common spray-and-pray, chemical-only methods. Our Pest Pro's are sharp individuals who identify conducive conditions and patterns in pest behavior to deliver customized treatments. In addition, every technician is thoroughly vetted. Background checks are performed, and Fox technicians are licensed and certified by local EPA guidelines to make sure they are qualified for treating your home effectively and safely.
