About this pro

How does your service stand out?

Lots of reasons. We are comprehensive (bugs to bats, there is nothing we don't do), we are very knowledgeable (Mark expects to get his Associate Entomology Certificate & Certified Tracker License within the year), but above all, we love what we do. Can't explain it, just do, & it shows.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

The detective work. You learn to notice every little thing at all times. Teaches you to look at the world, keep your senses focused all the time. Life is better when your eyes are open to see it.

    Great job! Would recommend and hire again if needed.
    Mark came out and worked on my ant problem. Gave me lots of information and guaranteed the work for 90 days. Didn't try to sell me a service. I enjoyed working with a company that is locally owned and operated.

    Don't bother shopping around.
    Wayfare Pest Solutions is by far the best company you can use for your rodent/pest removal. I hired them to take care of a rat issue we had and they were able to come out same day every time I called and have the best prices and results by far. Other companies that do the same thing will charge over $250 for a set up plus $100 per rat the removed which is ridiculous. Wayfare charged me far less without charging me $100 per rat and will come out as many times as they need over 3 months, and don't force you to sign up for their service.

    Good Experience
    Mark came out and went into my crawlspace and showed me the spots the mice came in from the outside. He was very knowledgeable and you could tell enjoyed and took pride in his work. He explained several facts about mice that were very helpful.

    Ants
    It took almost the entirety of our three month contract to get rid of our sugar ants (largely our fault for spraying chemical in the house), but Mark was very patient to continue coming out to our home anytime I emailed. We have had ants in our home for the better part of nine years, and we now have none!

    I Called Wayfare when I suspected a skunk was living under the shed in the back yard. They came right out, evaluated the situation and after confirming it was skunks, they set out live traps. Over the next month, they successfully trapped and removed several skunks. All I had to do was call them when the trap had tripped and they came right out to check on it, reset it if needed, and remove the trapped animals. Everybody I interacted with was very nice, very helpful, and if I ever have any such problems again, I will be calling them.

    We had at least 4 squirrels in the attic. Now after a week Mark has trapped 4 squirrels - that may be all but we have three more weeks of trapping to find out. Wayfare responds the same day to pick up squirrels caught. Great, so far.

    Mark was great. So informative and honest about the ant problem we have, making sure I knew what to expect. He treated the inside and outside of our house for 3 different types of ants. The traps for inside are safe for our kids and dogs. His price was also the best offer we had and will include him coming back in the next 3 months if/when ants re-emerge (we have A LOT of ants) He was prompt and professional. Thanks!

    Mark and his assistant inspected our problem for over an hour and came to the conclusion that we could trap the critter ourselves. He didn't charge us a dime for his service call and advice. And he did say he would be happy to return if we were unable to rid ourselves of the pest. We were able to take care of the varmint. I would highly endorse Wayfare Pest Solutions.

    I look forward to the follow-up visit in 3 months to see how effective the treatment was for spiders. Mark came on time. He was professional. Mark was straight forward and he listened to my needs as a customer.

    We had starlings nesting in a hard to reach, narrow area high above the front door. Mark assessed the situation and made a referral for us without charging for his time. The referral took care of the issue and we are satisfied. Thanks, Mark, for your time and expertise.

    We had a squirrel chewing on our house; and Mark removed the squirrel from the premise. Mark was friendly and efficient; knew what he was doing. It took a change of trap to finally catch the furry troublemaker, but he was gone quick.
  • Reese H. Jun 30, 2014
    Mark is a very hard worker and does his job well. He is detail oriented and believes in doing a job right the first time. He wants his work to be perfect and will go above and beyond to make it so. He is a good man who is more concerned with the job being done right than making a huge profit.

    If you have an unwanted pest, Mark Strazhari is who you want removing it! The best pest control service around.

Q&A

How did you get started doing this type of work?
Oddly enough, I was kind of raised doing it. Mainly catching rattlesnakes in the Mojave desert. I wish I knew earlier it was something you could just walk in & get a job doing, I'd have done it all my life.
What types of customers have you worked with?
Most of my clients (80%) are other pest control companies. When something they don't (or won't) handle pops up, they call me in to deal with it. Mainly wildlife like birds, bats, skunks, raccoons, & the like. Things that bite back.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Ask around, Call a few companies. Remember, you always get what you pay for. If something sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
Fighting an organism with a vested interest in infesting your home/business takes time. Even with all the tools & experience, instant results are rare. Even so, we CAN get results, no matter how dire the circumstances seem.
