“American Pest responded so quickly to my rodent issues, and their follow up was outstanding. Customer service reps and the actual workmen listened to my concerns and handled the issue in a very safe manner—A+.”
“American Pest is hands down the best pest control company I've dealt with. The people I've spoken to on the phone have always been polite and helpful. They always send the same technician out, so he knows our problems and needs every time. I will recommend them to anyone—A.”
“We have been extremely happy with the service from American Pest. They let you know when they plan to come, they show up when they say, and then they provide a full report of what they did and actions we as the homeowners can take to improve on the situation. Awesome service—A.”
“Tech was friendly, helpful, and seemed knowledgeable.”
“We were referred to American Pest by a neighbor who has also been happy with their service. I like that we get a report after each visit that outlines what was done and also provides any suggestions going forward. Keep up the good work.”
“I just love American Pest. I've been a customer since 2011 and could not be happier. I originally called them when spring brought out the ants. They were everywhere. Even on my two-year-old's bed. American Pest came quickly, did a thorough assessment and got rid of the ants. The number of ants I see gets smaller every year. I barely saw any last year. I also had a mouse issue a year ago. I called American Pest, and they came out within a few days. I always recommend American Pest when friends and co-workers ask for pest control recommendations. They're awesome.”
“They were professional, made me feel confident that they would resolve the problem. Came up with a plan as well as a time frame to resolve the problem. Communicated the pricing up front and stayed within the budget to resolution. Stayed in contact with me the whole time.”
“The American Pest staff were very knowledgeable and friendly. The technician went over all that he was going to do and what to look for in case of any issues. I highly recommend their services.”
“They showed up on time, were very thorough about inspecting the house, told me where they found some termites, recommended a service, and they came back quarterly to inspect it.”
“I have had American Pest servicing my home for many years and am very pleased with their service.”
