My husband and I had a terrible experience with a different company and immediately called James to have our home rechecked for bed bugs. The courtesy and quick response from this company was amazing. They came to our home and did a detailed inspection and gave advice on how to maintain our home bug free. If you are looking for a responsible, knowledgeable company please don't even hesitate to call these guys!

James and his team are top notch in terms of their work and their professionalism. James got back to me right away and showed up exactly when he said he would. I felt extremely comfortable with him inside my home and he was very knowledgeable answering all of my questions and concerns. Great competitive price too! Would recommend to anyone dealing with any pest control needs. Thanks James!

Background Check

James Cuervo


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

    We first make them understand what it is we are there to do and the steps were going to take to eradicate their issue. The customer needs to be on the same page as we are. Once they understand what it is they are hiring us to do, we get to work answering any questions they have along the way.

  • What types of customers have you worked with?

    Homeowners, business owners, restaurants, management companies, landlords, hotels, motels, nursing homes, etc.

  • Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?

    We do a 315 unit building that had the worst case of roaches we’d ever seen. Within a month the roaches were knocked down by about 90 percent. Still our greatest achievement.

Not what you’re looking for?

No problem: we have pros for every job.
