What Our Customers Are Saying
Mike IS wonderful. He will come out multiple times in the same week if needed. My daughter got married last may, and we had the rehearsal dinner (for 50) at our house. Two weeks before the dinner, ants showed up in the kitchen. Mike kept coming out till they were all gone. He was a lifesaver.
They always let me know when they were coming, always professional. If I ever seen a bug in house they came immediately and resprayed. One happened once in three years. Always polite, punctual and professional. Wouldn’t have any other bug company! I also love the fact I have the same person every time come out. So me or wife know them by name and it’s great all the way around.
The agent was very professional, knowledgeable, and reliable. I would definitely use this company’s service again.
