    Gentleman who came out was very professional, arrived right on schedule. Was very knowledgeable and explained everything I was unclear about. Left no mess and nothing was rummaged or left out of place. The staff who worked over my price was also incredibly helpful, matching a competitor's quoted price for my job. Was told a two week time frame should see the last of them die off, still dealing with some here and there but it seems much more controlled so far after a week (treated 4/16). Will update in another week. So far incredibly pleased and would gladly recommend.

    Professional and Effective Service
    Had the beginnings of a bed bug problem (luckily restricted to one floor of our house). Barry from Budget Pest Control came through, explained the process, sprayed, and we haven't had problems with the little buggers since. Had he not caught all of them, though, Budget would have come back two weeks after the initial spray at no additional cost. Good price, good service, highly recommended.

    No hasslesuch and safe for the family.
    Had to reschedule the initial visit, and was able to do so with no issues whatsoever. Service was fast and thorough when they arrived. I made them aware that I had small kids and a dog, and they used a spray that once dried (which took about an hour) was safe for everyone to be around. It's been 4 days and I haven't seen and bugs since they sprayed, and with the 2 month guarantee, I'm hoping they stay away through the winter.

    Budget pest came in for a termite infestation at our home. Termites are a stressful find, but they were very polite and responsive and talked us through the process. Price was very responsible compared with other estimates-we ultimately chose budget because of their overall professionalism, knowledge, and quick response.

    Yellowjacket Nest
    Technician showed up on time and was very pleasant and knowledgeable. I am hopeful that the yellowjackets are finished and will not return. Only thing I didn't like was that I was promised at the time I spoke on the phone with the company that the nest would be removed, though I described the situation. It was pretty clear to me that it could not, without tearing the house apart, and the technician confirmed that.

    Arrived Late for Treatment of Bees
    Brett was courteous, but almost seemed like he was in a hurry. He was supposed to arrive between 1 and 3 pm. (I took a half days vacation, so I would be there when he arrived.) Shortly after 3 pm, he called and told me he was running late. I even told him at that time that I had taken a half days vacation, but he said nothing. He didn't arrive until about 4:15 pm, and never apologized for being late. I understand that things come up that can result in running behind schedule, but perhaps I should have been offered a discounted price because he was late? I could have finished my work day, and still been there in plenty of time without wasting a half days vacation. It has only been 5 days since the treatment of a bee infestation inside the wall of my house. So far, so good, but time will tell.

    Within 6 mintues of posting my ad on Thumtack I was contacted by Budget Pest Control. Their customer service was outstanding, and they came to my home the same day to inspect and give me an estimate for treating termites. The estimate was half the cost of competitors. The technician was very personable, and called two times to keep me informed of his arrival time. Very pleased with the service so far, and would strongly recommend them!

    Pleased with initial response to rat infestation and odor under our home crawl space-came within several days of my inquiry and phone call. Tech went out of his way to explain everything. I called 1 week later to discuss horrible smell in our family and patio room. Was asked if we had seen any additional rats since the initial application and informed them that we had not seen any. I Was told that they would come out to remove any dead rats and apply more deodorizer to the area but would have to charge an additional fee since it was not part of the warranty. What a surprise.

Q&A

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
We take the time to explain the processes of each job, in and out. We then address any questions the consumer might have, talk pricing and get you set for a visit!
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Pest control is an ever-changing field, with new challenges popping up all the time. We try to stay on the forefront of new information through periodicals, seminars and online courses, which shapes the way we provide our award-winning service to customers.
What types of customers have you worked with?
We do it all. Termites, Bedbugs, Stinkbugs, Carpenter Ants, Centipedes, Rats, Yellow Jackets, Carpenter Bees, Wasps, Mice, Hornets, Spiders, you name it. If it is a pest chances are we have the solution.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Do your homework. Not all pest control companies are created equally. Most pest control companies require the customer to sign a contract for one year of service. We do not agree with that philosophy and feel that a customer should have us as little or as long as they choose to. We would not exist if it was not for the customer.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
When dealing with pest control, the big things you should always ask questions about are; how long has your provider been in the business, am I going to be locked into a contract and what type of follow-up/warranty do you offer?
