    Patrick is very professional and extremely through. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone. I had a very bad rodent problem and he eliminated it!

    Hired!
    Patrick came out on time and was very knowledgable about my problem with mice. He was fast and efficient, explained everything to me, and then gave me a very reasonable quote. His quote actually came in about $300 less than the other ones I had. I just hired him, so he has not completed the work yet, but the plan is solid. He seems like a man of his word!

    Simply the Best
    Normally I don't write reviews but I feel compelled to in this case. Patrick came to inspect a rodent problem in my crawl space. He is an outstanding human being. He has a gift for creating a pleasurable experience out of an inconveniencing problem. This man knows his "sh*t" and I'd never call anyone else for pest control services. In under 30 minutes he provided traps, professional advice and filled entry points. He's a wealth of knowledge. Do yourself a favor and call him. Support small local businesses like his and we're all better off for it!

    Pat is AWESOME
    Pat is excellent! He is diligent, fast, hard working, and always on time (and the one time he was not, he called and told me 15 minutes and he was right on the dot!) - awesome service!

    Spiders be Gone!
    Pat was great - he fully explained the process, what was in the products he used, and sprayed indoor and outdoor to remedy our spider issue. Thanks Pat!

    You will feel it was done right using Gath's Pest Patrol
    After getting two quotes from Thumbtack I chose Gath's based on reviews from both companies on another review site different that Thumbtack. Gath's Pest Patrol really lived up to all the positive and 5 star reviews. He was prompt and very knowledgeable. We decided to spray only the outside vs inside and out. He was not pushy for me to spend more and felt that it wasn't necessary to spray the inside. There is no up-sell or price gouging what so ever. Very honest company. He wants you to be happy with his service, products and results. If you're not happy, he won't be happy and will want to make it right.

    Definitely recommend!!
    Patrick came out to inspect for termites. He looked under our house and found no evidence and recommended my husband spray in the little hole he found in the wall. We felt Patrick was very honest - he could have told us we had termites to get business but he didn't. If we ever do need pest control we will definitely use Gath's Pest Patrol.

    We needed Patrick to scope out a potential field mouse situation in our ADU. He was there the next day and gave us a very economical solution!

    When I phoned to discuss "green" pesticide options, the woman on the phone started getting frustrated and defensive with me and said that maybe it would be best to just cancel my appointment. I was quite surprised by that but I have subsequently found someone else who is happy to discuss the pesticides that will be used. And the woman at the new company explained that legally I have the right to discuss the types of pesticides that will be used.
    Patrick G. Oct 5, 2015

    I'm glad you found someone to meet your needs. No one at our firm said you don't have the right to discuss what may be used. You were happy with nothing we said, we advised you look elsewhere. No harm, glad your happy. Patrick Gath

    I was very happy with this service. We requested a quote yesterday and he was able to get out this morning. He explained the process and offered to come out free of charge if there were any more problems. I would definitely recommend him.

Q&A

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I attend industry conferences. I have certification from Purdue University Center for Urban and Industrial Management. Completed Texas A & M Termite Biology Course. Completed the AIB (American institute of baking) course for proper food handling treatments. And truly, many more, but those are the biggies.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
My brother ( who was a pest tech ) broke his arm the summer I was 16 and convinced me to help him for the entire summer. Who knew at almost 45 years old I would still be here.
What types of customers have you worked with?
Ants, Carpenter Ants, rodent control, bee removal, yellow jackets, fleas, termites, bed bugs, cockroaches, silverfish, carpet beetles, earwigs, bird removal/proofing, commercial properties, residential properties, restaurants, warehouses
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
All of them!
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Do a little homework about the technician, and not just the company. Also, our industry has minimum insurance requirements. The minimum is 15k.. you should have a company with at least 1 million (we carry 2 million).
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
It all matters to me! Its not a job, its a career I am so lucky to have. It has provided my family a wonderful life and I try to show that appreciation with every client! Time is very valuable, as such I try very hard to give real appointment times as opposed to the 8-12, 12-5 lousy time frames
