Review by

“They  do monthly service for me for the last two years. They were the third pest control service that I called and they were the only one that made a dent in actually solving the problem. I'd give the quality of work an A. The customer service is fabulous. The only issue I've ever had with them is not being exactly here when they say they're going to be here, but early on I worked on that with them and they were very cooperative. We set up a regular maintenance schedule, and since then, it's been great.”

Review by

“They're our usual exterminators. Our usual guy, Mark, he comes out whenever we need him. He normally comes out every two months and it's about 9 dollars. We've had wasps in our garage; he took care of that. When we first moved in, we had a mouse running around and he took care of that. When we had rats in the backyard, they were chewing through our electrical wiring and air conditioning system. It took our air conditioner out last year. They've done a few things for us. I'd give them an A.”

Review by
10/14/2016

“They've  done work for me a couple times. The owner came to our house, so obviously he wants to represent the company the best that he can. The customer service, follow-up, and the guarantee that he provided were very good. He did follow up a couple times where additional work needed to be done and if that was within a certain time period from the initial visit, he provided that at no cost to us. I have no complaints about them and they stand by their work. I would highly recommend them.”

Review by
10/14/2016

“I had an OK experience with them. He did not get rid of the problem. He was a good guy, did his job, but then he said the infestation was probably too severe and he needed to come again. He did come once, but they wanted to charge me the whole thing. It had been more than a month and I was not paying. They worked here many times and it still persists, so I'm not paying the whole thing over again. He's a good guy and he did his job, but the treatment didn't work. I'd give them an A-.”

Review by
10/14/2016

“They were really good, but unfortunately, the ants kept coming back. My boyfriend wouldn't let me call them to come back because he said it's a crazy season and the ants are going to keep coming. They finally disappeared about a week ago with the weather getting colder. It's really not their fault; he wouldn't let me call them to come back. I'd give them a B.”

Review by
10/14/2016

“They were supposed to call me because I was at work. I wanted more of a natural versus chemical solution, but it didn't offer anything that I didn't already know it existed. I'd give them a B-. Cleanliness I'm sure was fine; they were only outside. The website had advertised some natural solutions, but he didn't seem to know anything about that.”

Review by
10/14/2016

“They're always very easy to work with. We've used them in the past. Good communication and they show up when they say they will. They do good work, they do good follow-up, and they have reasonable rates, so it's a very positive experience. I'd give them an A+.”

Review by
10/14/2016

“They  were so reliable. It was incredibly done—they were amazing. They kept coming back and back even when they thought they had solved the problem but hadn't. They were really attentive. I'd give them an A+ rating.”

Review by
10/14/2016

“They were thorough. When they first came out and the solution wasn't solved, they sent someone and they did the job. It wasn't solved the first time, but they came out to actually finish it. I'd give them an A+.”

Review by
10/14/2016

“The guy who came was really knowledgeable. I could tell he was very experienced. He had dealt with the problem we had many times and worked hard to figure out what was causing it. I'd give them an A grade.”

Review by
10/14/2016

“I really like Ken. He comes and helps us with our ants. I'd give them an A+. They mostly do stuff outside, and the people I've spoken to on the phone are really friendly and accommodating.”

Review by

“They were great. They were willing to come out every time I asked and reassure me that the problem was being taken care of. They'd get an A+ rating from me.”

Review by

Review by
10/13/2016

“He  was awesome. I had been living with these stupid ants forever. I thought I was stuck. He came out and I haven't seen an ant since. He was very nice too. I'd give them an A+ rating.”

Review by
10/13/2016

“I've used them for several years. They're very responsive. I'll call and they'll be out either that day or the next. They're always able to handle the problem. They definitely deserve an A.”

Review by
10/13/2016

“They came out quickly. It wasn't expensive. They were taking care of a bee's nest in the tree and told me that if I saw it a few days later, call back and they would come back and take care of it. So, they came back and took care of it. I'd give them an A grade.”

Review by

Review by
07/21/2015

“They were patient with me, they answered all my questions, and they gave me helpful suggestions. They took care of a rat issue. They were able to deal with it, as far as I can tell. They were listed in the Best Pick Reports that we get. I’d give them an A.”

Review by
07/21/2015

“It was fine—I don't remember anything bad. I had a wasp’s nest under my porch. It was very straightforward. They came and did something, and then it was done. I would give them an A.”

Review by

“It was a fine experience. I had a carpenter ant issue. The customer service was fine, and I'd say they’re an A.”

Review by

“We had some bees. The exterminator was great. It was just about a 20-minute deal—he took care of it really quickly. He knew what he was doing. I would give them an A.”

Review by

“They're very friendly. They took care of ants, spiders, centipedes, and a whole host of things. I would give Conquest Pest Solutions an A+.”

Review by

“Conquest Pest Solutions solved the problem. We used them to get rid of carpenter ants, and they got rid of them. They earned an A.”

Review by
07/21/2015

“I like them, overall—I can't say anything bad about them at all. Our building was having an issue with rats. I’ll give them an A.”

Review by
07/21/2015

“They did do work for me. It was more of a neutral experience. They were killing rats, a lot of rats died, a lot of them just came back, if we could of, expected that, it was sort of hard to schedule visits, it was supposed to be a returning visit, and communicating with them wasn't easy. Customer service was OK. I would give them a B-.”

Review by
07/21/2015

“They sound familiar. It was a positive experience with them. They needed to come back, I called, they came back right away, it was no problem. We still had some ants. I think they were just ants in general. Today I would give them a B, because they had to come back and redo some of the work.”

Review by
07/21/2015

“The guy that came to do the work was very nice and very knowledgeable. He made recommendations of future treatments, and he let me know in detail about their policy of coming back. The customer service was easy. I was able to set it up on the first call, and they were able to schedule the appointment quickly. They took care of general basement bugs and some ants. I would give them an A.”

Review by
07/21/2015

“We're very happy. They came through, they explained everything, and we haven't had any problems since then. They caught, I don't know what to call them, sewer flies, but it was a small, like gnat size flies—it was round. We figured out it was coming from, less than perfectly sealed sump pump. They came in there, explained to us, and eventually went and got themselves a little fly swatting gun and got it cleared up right away. My wife is the one who made that call, and they're probably the first one to respond to us. I would give them an A.”

Review by
07/21/2015

“I did have a positive experience with Conquest Pest Solutions. They came out one time. I had an apartment for rent, and when a lady moved in, there was an ant problem. We made an appointment, and they came out. The exterminator was right on time as scheduled, and he walked around the premises, checked everything out, and said what he was going to do. We haven't had any problems since. I have to say everything came up pretty easy. I had no problem with customer service.”

Review by
07/21/2015

“They sound familiar, not for me, but for the apartment I have, and I'm not so sure that was going so well actually. The tenant told us that he found more bed bugs, but said he was going to wait to let us know if he found more, and he didn't see anything since then, so I'm guessing it's OK, almost a month ago. I had Conquest out to take care of some bed bugs in an apartment. Somebody recommended them. They gave me a list of companies that do treat bed bugs in the specific area, so they were on the list. Customer service was good. I would give them an A, there was no problems, the bugs came back, but that's not really their fault.”

Review by
07/21/2015

“They came right when they said they were going to, they looked around thoroughly and checked things out, and they took care of potential problems. There were some preexisting pest issues. We had carpenter ants, and they took care of some of the bugs that were there. They sprayed both inside and outside of the house and around the foundation. I would give Conquest an A because there were no issues. They did everything they said they were going to do. The guy looked over the basement area really well and took care of everything around the foundation from both the inside and outside, so I have no complaints whatsoever.”

“They were fabulous. Michael came. The man came, such a nice guy, his name was Michael—he was clean, he did everything so neatly, he was very personable, but yet, not pushy. He was just so nice, and oh my gosh, I would definitely recommend them again, definitely. I had ants in my kitchen. I thought they were poppy seeds at first on my counter, but they were moving so my girlfriend recommended this company. I called them, it was a woman who I spoke with, got me in that day I believe, and she was fabulous. He came when he said he was going to come, he came, and he put some powder around and some spray. I walked around with him, he was explaining it to me, but the bottom line is they're not here. The bugs, to me it was everything. He told me I could have them even come, within a month, just as cautionary. Within a month, even though I didn't see anything, after two weeks, I called them, they said absolutely, he came back, did a follow up, sprayed a little more, he went in the inside and the outside, upstairs and the basement, and in the bathrooms everywhere. He was just fabulous, fabulous, and I would tell if it wasn't. I would give them an A++, not just one plus, two pluses. Michael—he is fabulous, he is top notch.”

Review by
07/16/2015

“They're very courteous, very thorough, ask questions, if I needed anything extra, the price was right, and they're convenient. I had a problem with spiders in my basement, they started coming up the stairs, and that was the problem because I do have grandbabies and great grandbabies. They were coming in from out of town, and I wanted to have the service done to make sure there would no critters in my basement. He came out, and the service was free if they had to do it again within 45 days. He did have to come back out. I only saw one tiny spider, but I was having other family members coming in town and I wanted to make sure that if I saw a little spider by the washing machine, it's going to be fine so I asked them to come back out. Of course, no charge as he said, and I haven't seen any since. I would give them an A+.”

Review by
07/16/2015

“The exterminator was very knowledgeable. I have a strong phobia of any insects, and he actually explained things to me without scaring me. The thing is, I think, because I'm living in the apartment building on the third floor, even after the second round of pest control, I still see ants in my apartment. I understand that because I live in the apartment building, the thing just probably just crawled up from the first floor, if the second floor doesn’t do anything about it, who's going to get it? But it's better than before. Customer service is good. It was great. I think it's between excellent and the next level down, because, anyway, there's still ants around, it's not like completely gone, but it's understandable. The customer service and their work quality is pretty good, A- does perfect.”

Review by
07/16/2015

“They sound familiar. It was a positive experience. They were quick, they were efficient, they came quickly after I called, it's been about close to a year, like 6 months ago, so I don't remember too many details, I know that we had a nest of bees that had really stung my husband quite badly so he got it taken care of. It was based off of an isolated incident. I might have noticed they were local, I'm not really sure, I can't remember, I don't know of them, I don't recall. I would say they deserve a B+ from what I just remember, there were no issues.”

Review by
07/16/2015

“Conquest was good. They were here on time, and they were neat and very punctual. They explained things as they went around, and I liked that all the stuff they used is natural. We had a problem with ants this year for some reason. Our neighbor used them to get rid of some rats. We haven't had a problem. They said that the ants would be gone by a certain time, and they were gone a couple of days before. They earned an A.”

Review by

“They did a fabulous job. Customer service was five stars, couldn't be better. They get an A+. I got them from Best Pick Reports.”

Review by

“My wife says that they did a good job. We had bugs and carpenter ants, but my wife says Conquest got rid of them, so we're happy. We’ll give them the highest rating they can get—A+.”

Review by

“It was fine. They came out twice at my old house, and the customer service was terrific. Whatever it was they did, it worked. I would rate them as an A.”

Review by

“They came out and killed a hornet's nest outside my building. It was absolutely a positive experience. They came and took out the nest, and I haven’t had any problems since. Conquest is A+.”

Review by
07/16/2015

“They’re always really good. Each time one of their technicians came out—he's like really friendly and really thorough, they got a bunch of nice guys working for them. They taught me music theory. One time when the guy came out to pick up some rats, he taught me all about music theory. They took care of rats. I would give them an A for excellent.”

Review by
07/15/2015

“It was a positive experience. They did the job that was requested of them, were prompt, came to their appointment on time. I would give them a B. I think their, some of their quotes with additional work need to be a little bit more palatable, so to speak, I thought they were expensive, but other than that, they were very prompt with the prior request and responsive, so I have no complaints in that regard.”

Review by
07/15/2015

“I think they've been out twice. I would say their customer service is good, but it seems like they're maybe a smaller company and so they don't have as good of response time as some of the larger companies do. It's harder to get appointment in short term. I'd give them a C. That's probably it; no other advice.”

Review by
09/10/2014

“We had rat trouble, so they set traps up and discovered the place of entry. We worked with them, and the issue was resolved. We haven't had any problems since. I'd give them an A-. I don't think there was an issue, but the tenants said that they didn't do that much, even though to me, the problem was solved.”

Review by
09/10/2014

“We had ants and a spider problem. The guy was friendly and quick, and it was good. I needed him to come back again because we still had more pests, but that was part of the deal. They came back for free, and it pretty much helped the problem. It's been a lot better since then. I’d give them an A.”

Review by
09/10/2014

“We had a mouse problem in one of our buildings, and we asked them to come over, set some traps, and find out why we were having the problem. It went all right. We found out why we were having the mouse problem, and he gave advice on how to resolve it. Then, he came back again, and as far as I know, we haven't had a mouse problem. Conquest earned an A.”

Review by
09/10/2014

“We had a really good experience with Conquest. The service guy was really great because he gave us a whole bunch of information, and he did a really thorough job. I would say they are an A because he answered our original questions, and then he answered a couple of other questions that we hadn't brought up until he got here. He wasn’t withholding, and I thought that was really good service.”

Review by
09/10/2014

“It was for a rats issue. They actually didn't end up finding anything but there was evidence. They went through and he came back a number of times and set bait and did a full cleanout, so I was pretty happy with the work that they did, yeah. I would probably give them a B. It was really kind of minor things, so it wasn't anything I thought would prevent me from hiring them again.”

Review by
09/10/2014

“The problem is it's the third time Conquest has come out to my house, so I'm just hoping that it achieves the goal on the third time. I think that's a really hard thing to — I don't want to misrepresent — the representative was very nice, but at the end of the day I still have an ant problem after two visits so they came for a third time today. So, hopefully that takes care of it, so I don't want to categorize it because I think that's fair. I think you can give a B.”

Review by
09/10/2014

“The pricing was nice, and the guy was very efficient, very. He went around and he did his due diligence of making sure wherever pests were, they wouldn't be and what have you. So, he kind of did a thorough analysis of the house. Their price was something like $180. They came the first time, they did an assessment, and then they came the second time—that was good. There were no pushing sales whatever so, I like the way they went about it. I'd give them an A.”
