I called last month for exterminating pests in a rental property I own. The girl on the phone promised one of the techs would make an appointment with my tenant. When no bill arrived I checked with the tenant who thought I had forgotten because no one ever called. I contacted Modern Exterminating again and relayed my disappointment. The person on the phone could find no record but promised to have it taken care of immediately. Once again she took all my billing information. It has been three days now. My husband and I will be canceling our contract with them. DO Not Use Them. Not dependable.

I recently used Modern Exterminators in Jacksonville, NC, and I will NEVER use their service again. They came on a Friday to spray for roaches and other bugs that we were seeing in the summer months. They sprayed inside and outside our house and charged us $80. Everything was good until Saturday night when we caught our dog (sheltie) licking the wall. We started to put him in the cage when we couldn’t watch him. Then he started to throw up that night! We put him outside and he started to eat grass like it was candy. Modern Exterminators reassured me twice that the spray was “pet friendly” so I figured it would be fine for them to spray inside. I know it is not good for my dog to be licking the chemicals off the carpet, but I feel as if they should have given me more information on what chemicals they were using and to keep pets and small children AWAY from it. It was a Saturday night so I couldn’t call them to ask what the chemicals were to tell the vet. They discounted us only $25! We don’t feel like they really CARE about their customers. They just want to make $$$. I WILL NEVER USE THEM AGAIN. I advise you to SAY AWAY! Go somewhere that actually cares about your family, and who you can trust! If anyone has used any SAFE exterminators in the Jacksonville area let us know. Good luck.

The owner came to my house to spray my yard. I wanted to get rid of my bugs in my yard. He told me that the garlic spray he uses would work and if the spray did not work he would come back and try a different product. I have called over 10 times and he does not answer. I even leave messages. I am paying for nothing. I am extremely disappointed. I will have to try a different service next year.

Just had them out, they are overpriced and not at all thorough. Called out another company, was $200 cheaper and found stuff Modern missed in their quote.

Don't use them. I had them come out for a quote and when I was told how much I to,d the exterminator it was a lot at the time he said I could make payments but I never told him I wanted the service. He went to his truck and wrote up a piece of paper and had me sign on the hand written "X" I didn't know I was signings contract. All it has is the name and address of the company and my address written in and the "x" I moved Way and started getting bills so I called the offc and told them I didn't want the service they said ok and that was that. I kept getting bills and kept calling confused as to why when I told them I didn't want the service not one if them told me they weren't authorized to write it off the owner was. I found that out when I asked to speak to the owner. He told me I was responsible for it because I signed it and he was standing by his exterminator that he knew better than to have me sign if I didn't want the service. There's nothing I can do but pay them the owner Charles knows no one is wiling to go to small claims court. I know I'm not the first or the last this will happen to. I told the owner that I called every month I kept getting a bill and told them I didn't want it and they led me to believe it was taken care of. Even went so far as to have the offc manager put me on 3 way with the exterminator who also said well if she doesn't want it then cancel it but when I told the owner he said he would talk with them. But this same exterminator who knew best according to the owner, apparently didn't know he couldnt make that call on my account because it never went away. After a few minutes of trying to work this out the owner told me that he had explained to me what was gonna happen and that he had someone waiting for him for 10 min already so he was basically telling me to deal with it. I felt like that was completely rude and unprofessional I had been waiting several months trying to sort this out. Lesson learned but they won't give me service either until, it's paid in full.
Tips & Advices
Ask your pest control company about no-kill traps you can use if you want to get mice, rabbits, opossums or other furry creatures out of your house without harming them.
Many pest control experts now offer environmentally friendly treatment for your home and yard with insecticides that aren't as harsh for the ecosystem. Check with exterminators around your area to see if they provide these kinds of services. Also, keep your plants free from harmful chemicals by spraying cedar oil or soapy water on your flowers.
  • Dispose of garbage regularly.
  • Don't  leaving food or drink out.
  • Clean up after spills as soon as you can.
  • Drain any standing water in your house or yard.
  • Regularly mow and rake your lawn.
If you find insects and other animals trying to get in through cracks or openings, use a caulk gun to fill the gaps. You'll also want to either use traditional bug spray or a citronella candle to keep bugs such as mosquitos away from you during the summer months.
The price for exterminators can range broadly since they can charge for a monthly inspection and treatment. The final bill also comes down to the square footage of your property.
When pest control technicians visit your home or place of business, expect them to first identify what insect or other animal it is that's causing trouble. After identification, they will inspect your building to see where the pests are coming from and locate their hive or nest. Then the exterminator will spray or set out traps and bait according to which pest you have.
