“I had a positive experience.”

“I've used them multiple times. They've worked on termites. They are responsive. I've had a couple of weird scenarios with them, and they are always on top of it. They show up on time. They do what they say they're going to do. I'd give them an A+. I'm very happy with them.”

“We had an ant problem. They had good results and prompt service. They had friendly workers. It was a positive experience. I would give them an A+ overall.”

“I've been with them for a year and I've just renewed. I'm quite happy with them. I've got interior and exterior issues. They come regularly and on the schedule to spray. One time I had a little furry creature in my house. Furry creatures are not welcomed in my house. I called and then the guy was out the next day, put a trap, and I've not seen one since. So, very happy. They show up every time I've been home. Every time they come, it's been the same person. I like that. I like that continuity. I'd give them an A overall. I've already recommended them.”

“They did just regular, spraying, and maintenance kind of stuff. They were easy to sign up with, easy to cancel when we decided we didn't want to do it anymore, and responsive. I'd give them an A.”

“They did residential pest control. They just used technology for billing and email notifications. They just make it seamless. I would give them an A for the total experience. I'd be very likely to recommend them.”

“They do quarterly maintenance. They come on time. They do a good job and since I had them coming to my house, there were no more pests. I would give them an A. I'd be very likely to recommend them.”

“They do quarterly pest control around the house. They show up and I don't have to worry about it. Aside from the first visit, I don't interact with them. I'd give them an A.”

“They do regular pest control. They come and bait for mice. They're always very attentive to what you request and their turnaround time is really the best. When you call, within two hours someone is there to help us out with anything. I'd give them an A.”

“They sprayed for cockroaches. Their friendliness and effectiveness made it a positive experience. It seems like they guarantee their work. If they need to redo it, they don't charge you an additional fee. That's pretty nice.”

“They sprayed the outside of the house. We don't have an active bug problem, but we're using monthly maintenance, and I would give them an A.”

“This company has done work for me for over a year. They have been prompt and friendly, and I've had no issues with pests or rodents in my home—A.”

“The technician came to check out a suspected mouse infestation. He was right on time and determined very quickly where the mice were coming from. He set out traps and set a time to check on the status of the mice. I enrolled for a yearly program, and PestNow emails me a time they will come do the spring check and spraying—very convenient—A+.”

“I like these guys. Started with them about six years ago and have stayed with them since—A.”

“Our house had cockroaches and spider crickets. After two treatments, the bugs were gone and haven't come back. I have been pleasantly surprised by how effective PestNow's services are.”

“I am very happy with Pest Now as far as their performance goes, the only thing I would work on them is to be able to reach the place for treatment on time. They give a two hour window to the work, but I have had instances where they reached after their allotted time to us. Otherwise they are extremely professional when it comes to work.”

“Great overall experience! Got the job done.”

“Best pest experience.”

“They do a good job.”

“Pest Now is very professional. I have purchased a quarterly pest treatment. They perform the work and leave notice once it has been completed. No issues with the company. Always responsive when I need to contact them.”

“Very good service. Arrived promptly, answered my questions, and did all that they said they would do.”

“My house was sprayed two times for ants and they are still having business inside the house. And my little bro is hating the ants when he sees them.”

“Pest Now offers reliable, efficient service. They are fast to respond to service needs. Their technicians are proficient and professional.”

“Great company! They come on time and warranty their work without question. I highly recommend Pest Now for both pest control and lawn care and maintenance services.”

“Customer Service Rep was awesome!”

“Very friendly and accommodating to my schedule.”

“I would have liked to know when Pest Now was coming to my house. They came on a Wednesday and I was off that Thursday - if I knew they were coming, I would have rescheduled to Thursday and then they could have sprayed inside and in the garage etc. I don't think I was notified on the date of their upcoming visit. Something to consider!”

“Prompt, professional and thorough.”

“It was great. It was a great service, and we were really happy. I would give them the highest grade because they were fantastic.”

“We have them coming again actually for something else soon, but so far, they are fast and super friendly. The exterminators were really, really good. We had an overall inspection done, and then specifically, we were treating for ants, potential mice, and termites. I saw that PestNow was a local company, and I went ahead and gave them a ring. They were super fast and helpful on the phone, so I thought that they seemed good. They're definitely an A+.”

“I like PestNow. They came a couple of times. They are responsible, and they're always on time. They did a general insect service for the bugs. They're excellent.”

“I would give PestNow an A+ for everything.”

“PestNow got rid of the pests. They deserve an A+.”

“It was good—it was simple to schedule. I believe they were already assigned to us for termites from our mortgage. They're an A+ company.”

“The exterminators asked us about what we were having issues with and took care of the problem. They were helping with spiders and ants. They were recommended to me, and I would say they're an A+.”

“PestNow is great. Chad is the technician, and he's very good. I liked his professionalism and ability to treat the areas. The actual treatments are effective, too. I would give them an A.”

“I liked how quick, prompt, and efficient they were. We had some pretty big spiders in the basement, and they came if not that day, the next day. They give us peace of mind. I would say they're an A grade.”

“They come on time when they're supposed to come, and they do the job that they're supposed to do. They spray in my yard for bugs and spiders and things. I would say they're an A grade.”

“PestNow came when they said they would, and they did what they needed to do. I chose them because the previous owners of our house had used them. They treated for termites around the outside of my house and for bugs inside of my house. They're an A-grade company.”

“I like that there are no more bugs in my house. They took care of it, so I would say they get an A.”

“It was fine. They were prompt, they followed up, and they reminded me about stuff. They answered my questions and stuff like that. The whole building had a cockroach infestation, so they got rid of that. I'd say they're an A rating.”

“They were friendly, and they were direct and honest. They were quick and efficient, too. They did a quality control inspection of our house. We have an annual plan for pest control, so they inspected to see what's going on with our pest situation. They also did an inspection to see if we had evidence of termites. PestNow gets an A from me.”

“The person who came was very professional and knowledgeable, and he performed the service that solved the problem. He inserted some gel into the wall because we were having an ant problem. They're an A.”

“They were very honest as far as what we could do to get rid of mice in our house. They put traps around our house and said, 'OK, give it ten days.' It was exactly ten days, and we didn't have the mice anymore, so that was definitely positive. They sprayed the outside of the house as well. I would give them an A rating.”

“They did great work. The guy was really good—he was really helpful with the problem that we had. Their name was given to us by the people that owned the house before us. I would say they get an A.”

“PestNow was very nice, and the guy that came out was great. They were getting rid of black ants. They had done some work for the previous owners at our house, and we had seen a little sign out in the yard, so I had seen that they had done work at the house before. I'd give them an A for the service.”

“I think they're all right, as long as they keep coming back to kill my bees. I think it was fine. It's an A for them because they did a good job.”

“They got the job done. My neighbor had a tree, and it was attracting some ants and insects and all that. PestNow gets an A.”

“They show up when they say they will and get it done—there are no problems. They do semiannual exterior and interior work for us. They deserve an A.”

“We had their exterminator over just last week. They're professional and thorough. They both kill and prevent insects and rodents. In other words, they poison insects where they are, and they also set traps for rodents. The poison also deters insects from coming in. It's both cure and prevention. I was dissatisfied with another firm that was less professional, so I hired PestNow. I'd give them an A.”

“It's been good. They came when they said they were going to come, and they were on time and efficient. They did what they needed to do, and I don't have mice at my house anymore. We moved into a house that was vacant for three years and renovated it, so PestNow put traps around and sprayed. They would be an A to me.”

“It went really well. They came, they did what they needed to do, they were friendly and neat, and they went on their way. They spray for pests. I would give them an A.”

“They were helpful, quick, and efficient. They do annual pest maintenance just to make sure that nothing comes in. They're an A-grade company.”

“The man who came, Jason, was very nice and very thorough. He explained everything to me, and I was very pleased. They set some places to catch some mice, and they also sprayed for bugs inside and out. I chose PestNow because my neighbor had used them. They get an A.”

“They've been pretty helpful, and they were pretty fast. They did bug control for the yard and the house. I would give them an A.”

“They were very responsive. They came out right away, maybe even a little earlier than I thought they were going to get here. We saw a mouse in our kitchen, and it freaked me out—we were worried that we had a problem. We called PestNow, and it was either that morning or night that they came out really, really quickly, so I really appreciated that. I've noticed a difference. I think it took care of the problem. I would give them an A because I thought they did a good job.”

“They've been here a couple of times, and they seem to do fine. The folks they send out are professional and polite, and they seem to know what they're doing. Whenever there's been an issue, they've come back to readdress it. The primary thing that they've been here for is ants, so they treated inside and outside for ants. Actually, they were just here today because I noticed some termites in front of the house. They did an inspection and confirmed the presence of termites, so they're going to be coming back to treat those. I'd give them an A.”

“I think they're good. The exterminator came to spray some roaches, and he made sure everything was fine. I think one of my sisters used them before. I'd give PestNow an A.”

“It was fine. They were quick and responsive. They sprayed for ants, and the customer service was fine. They were recommended by one of my partners, and I would give them an A for what they did.”

“I've been using PestNow for almost ten years. I like their consistency, and I'd probably give them an A.”

“PestNow did ant control. What made the experience positive was the person who came. He listened, and he knew what he was doing. They had great customer service. They deserve an A.”

“PestNow is amazing. I'd give them high marks in everything. They're quick to respond, and the guy who comes out is thorough and professional. I have a yearly contract with them; they come and spray for bugs and pests, and I've had them remove a couple of bees' nests. They've always been great. They get an A.”

“The guy who comes by clearly has a lot of expertise—he has been super helpful, and I've been pretty impressed with that. I'd give PestNow an A grade.”

“PestNow was great. I liked their technician. He's really informative; he reviews the steps before doing anything, and he follows up—there's constant communication. They're absolutely a grade-A company.”

“They came out pretty quickly for an ant problem in our kitchen, and the ants have definitely gone away. PestNow gets an A.”

“I have an annual contract, so PestNow comes out four times a year. They were out two weeks ago for maintenance and so far, so good. We have no bugs, and that's the best sign. They come when they say they're going to come, they treat the outside of the house, and we haven't had any bugs since. They get an A+.”

“They sprayed the yard and the inside of the house, and they took care of the eaves and everything. They're very good. The technicians are excellent. I've been using them for about four months. I would give them an A+ grade.”

“PestNow was excellent. The work was done satisfactorily, I paid them, and they will be coming back.”

“We have quarterly pest control. They do outside and inside work, and they've also done termite service for me. I think our neighbors across the street recommended them to us. I'd say they are an A+ company.”

“I needed to put in a request for them to come out, and they showed up on time. They were prompt, responsive, and knowledgeable, and if I had any questions, they were able to answer them. I think they were pretty good, so I would recommend them to others. I would rate them as an A+.”

“PestNow did a good job. It was my first time using them, but I didn't have any communication problems or issues with them. I would give them an A+.”

“They were very professional. They always came on time, they were very clean, and every single person who's been here has been really nice. I would definitely recommend them, and I'd give them an A+.”

“PestNow sprayed the exterior of the house. They were kind, prompt, and polite, and I thought the work quality was fine. A+.”

“They come out for the quarterly. They've been very nice, very prompt, and easy to work with. They try to work around your schedule, and they're always prompt when they say they're going to come. The two people who have been out have been very knowledgeable. I've been using them since the spring. I'm in the process of purchasing this condo, and the realtor recommended them to me. They deserve an A+ grade.”

“I've had a contract with PestNow for years, but I had to upgrade for a separate issue. They were helpful; they explained what the problem was and how they were going to treat it. I would recommend them—they're an A+.”

“I haven't seen any bugs, so the service has held up well. I would recommend PestNow. They should get an A+ rating.”

“When we used our previous pest control people, we always had a lot of spiders, but PestNow seems to have been able to control them. The crew was friendly, and they finished the job quickly. I guess I would grade them as an A+.”

“We've probably been using them for about five years, so they've been here a few times. They've been fine. They've always done exactly what they said they'd do. I feel like they do not do too much or too little in taking care of the problem, so I'm very pleased with them. I would absolutely recommend them, and I'd give them an A+.”

“I do not have a contract with them. They did a little bit of everything. They were very responsive. I have used them before. They get an A+ grade.”

“PestNow does a yearly inspection. They're competent, friendly, and knowledgeable, and everything has held up fine with no problems. I'd rate them as an A+.”

“I'm in real estate, so I've been using them for my business for a long time. I think they're very good—A+.”

“They take care of keeping up with spraying for pests, and my tenants have said that they have seen no pests in or around the house. It seems to be money well spent keeping the house in good repair. I would suggest the company to others. They get an A+ from me.”

“I think we did one service with them with PestNow. There was no mess. It was good.”

“They spray the perimeter of our childcare facility, and they've done so for a couple of years now. They did the job at our old location as well as our new location, so we've actually used them for quite a while. They have done great work for us. They answer all my questions and concerns. I would say they have earned an A+ grade.”

“We like PestNow. We've been using them for almost ten years now. They do a good job. Everything is good; we are very happy with their service. I'd give them an A+.”

“They did general outside pest control for me. I've been using them for a couple months, and my bugs are no longer there. I chose them for the service because my brother uses them. The workers are average people. No area of their service needs improvement. I would rate them as an A+.”

“I've always had a positive experience with PestNow, and I've used them for years. I like their overall service, and the people are always friendly. I'd give them an A. I've recommended them before.”

“They spray for bugs, ants, spiders, and stuff like that. I use them twice a year, and I think they're very good. I would recommend the company, and I'd give them an A+—they do a good job.”

“They sprayed the perimeter of the house. I've been very pleased with them. I have already recommended them. PestNow is an A+ company.”

“They seemed to work well. However long they took was reasonable as long as they got rid of the ants. I would absolutely use the company again if I needed to. I would grade them as an A+.”

“I see PestNow every 90 days. They arrive on time, and they finish the job in a decent amount of time. The quality of work is good; the job has held up well. I picked them because of their customer service. I'd give them an A+.”

“I had carpenter bees, and they're gone. PestNow did a great job. They were recommended by my son. I'm really happy about their service. I would have them back. I would certainly recommend them, and I already have. They deserve an A+.”

“They sprayed for ants inside and outside, and it was good. The workers were polite, and they did a good job. I've been using them for a year. I'd give them an A+.”

“I would give PestNow an A+ rating.”

“We've been using PestNow for years. They're fine—an A+.”

“They sprayed for spiders and stuff like that. They came when they said they were going to come, and the people were pleasant and very professional. I would give them an A+.”

“I really like PestNow. I used them probably about seven years ago, and I never had a problem with ants. They had to come out recently, but I've not had any more problems since they came. They are a really good company. I would give them an A.”

“I called them out for regular maintenance. They were recommended by a friend, and they did their job reliably. They should get an A grade.”

“They got rid of my carpenter bees, so the quality of the work was great. The technician was very good and thorough; he came on time, explained everything he was doing, and did what he was supposed to do. Their customer service was great. I had used them before when they did the termite inspection on the house. It was great, so I would give them an A.”

“They have kind pest management people who kill bugs. They are prompt, and they can whenever I need them to or if there are bugs inside the house. They're quick to respond outside of the quarterly service. They might've been a referral from a neighbor. We've used them for probably six years now. I'd rate them as an A.”
