Our technician Sox was great. He took care of our needs in a timely and professional manner. He reviewed his work in detail and made sure we were satisfied before his departure.

Edward (the technician) was prompt, professional and results have been good thus far. The overall experience was good - both over the phone and in person. I would recommend ClearDefense Pest Control.

Our technician from Clear Defense Pest Control is the best. He remembers our preferences and does not leave until all is completed to our satisfaction. We are so grateful he kept away the recent deluge of stinkbugs and other undersirable seasonal infestations. Thank you, Brian

After owner Mike left his card at our door, I called and spoke to Mike to learn more about their prices and what they use and all they cover in the first visit. Mike was able to give me an appt at my convenience. When Edward Schaad, the technician arrived he was very pleasant, explained what he would be doing and was very professional. I asked Edward about a 25 yr old houseplant I have, he even sprayed it for me. We will continue to use Clear Defense.

We just completed our first treatment with this company, Ryan with ClearDefense showed up right on time, was professional, very thorough, and explained all that he was doing in detail. I am very pleased with the service from this company, couldn't ask for better!Edit 4-14-2017: Just had a follow-up appointment to our first service we had around a month ago, and I continue to be impressed with this service, Ryan with ClearDefense did a fantastic job again. This company doesn't just zip around the house and spray here and there, they are very thorough and go way above and beyond what you would expect from a Pest Control company. I would highly recommend trying them out.Edit 10-15-2017: ClearDefense continues to provide great service! Sox did an amazing job for us yet again just the other and wanted to say thanks!

Sox did our quarterly maintenance today. We just had our new sod put down and he treated the entire yard. He made a point to find out if we had any issues that he could take care of. Great service!

ClearDefense technician Brian knocked on the door yesterday. He touched base with me before dewebbing and spraying around the house. He asked about doing the inside but it was not a good time for me. He was very thorough and good at his job.
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 ┬áleaving 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.
