Alterra Pest Control
We have used Alterra for over a year and a half now. We have had issues with Ants and other things in between our regular service but Alterra is out within a day or two (depending on our work schedules). My only problem with Alterrra is the fact that in the last year and a half I have asked numerous times for them to schedule our regular maintenace on Mondays since we have big, unfriendly outside dogs. Again this month they scheduled it for a Tuesday. Also note that it is on the work order that customer wants Mondays and Request Charles W. I recieved an email for our prescheduled date Monday night when I got home that they would be out the following (Tuesday) morning. I called and left a message for them to reschedule this visit since we would both be working and we have requested Mondays only. No one returned my call. (This is not the first time) So yesterday at 1100 am Joshua Ayson showed up to do our service. Luckily for him, I had been called off from work and was home. I allowed him to do the service and he did a great job. He took care in cleaning all the cobwebs and listened to what I wanted focus on. Even though it was not Charles, and it was not the right day, which we have requested, Joshua Ayson was very understanding and patient while I put the dogs up and he did a Great job!! Overall Alterra is good, just wish they would get it together in the scheduling department.

I just want to thank Austin P, Chris M, and Luis M for their Expert Customer Service and attentive service. Both Chris M and Luis M came by this morning to start my initial inspection and pest treatment. They swept all webs away in both my house and neighboring barn area, I have a 12 acre parcel of land in Simi Valley with horses and lots of spiders and ants. They did an Amazing job in cleaning up all the webs and spraying for Ants and Spiders. But that is not the most amazing thing. As we were deciding where to put the mouse traps, we came along a RattleSnake on my path to the barn. This snake was BIG, it had 8-9 rattles, and he was very angry that we were trying to reduce his food supply or rats. Well these guys went above and beyond the call of duty, and removed this highly poisonous Rattlesnake from my ranch. Thank you again Chris and Luis for your expert handling of this most dangerous situation. You not only saved my family, but the horses, and the family Dog Buddy from potential disaster. I highly recommend this company Alterra, for their humane and eco friendly solutions to pest control. As the weather gets hot, out come the pests, and a RattleSnake is not something you want around your home, so thank you again Alterra for your Expert Service and keeping my family safe!Steve Nicoletti

Charles W. with Alterra Pest Control showed up for our first visit and service. He introduced himself and explained exactly what he intended to do today, asked me about any troubled areas we had and made sure we understood what services were available to us under our contract. He then went right to work and performed his job. When he completed his work he needed a signature and described the follow-up service scheduled for a month from now and left me with numbers to contact this company if we have any issues that follow this visit. He met all my expectations and was extremely professional. A most valuable employee I would imagine, hence the detailed review - Thank you kindly Alterra -

I have been a long-term customer of North American Home Services while I lived in Sacramento. My family recently moved to Elk Grove and in the disorder of the move had not begun a new contract with NAHS. But NAHS was the first company I thought of when I discovered fleas in my yard from my neighbor's dogs. Not only did NAHS provide a same day appointment, their technician Ryan was knowledgeable, courteous and professional. He understood our concerns about our young daughter and explained everything in a kind and understanding way. I am so relieved to have NAHS working to protect my home. They are the best people and whom I recommend to my friends and family.

My technician was Mr. Raymon Hackett provide our home with the best service one could ask for. He called before making his way to our home, which I requested. Upon arrival he politely introduce himself, ask what was our main concerns. Then explained how he would be able to to control of the small critters. I must say yes even with all this rain in Sacramento the substance is working. With individuals like Raymond out there servicing homes I definitely understand why and also agree with Aptive being the fastest going pest control out there. If you're having issues at home go Aptive all the way & hopefully you're able to get Raymond. Thanks again.

Incredible people! I first met Michael and he had such amazing customer service, explained how the company works and answered ALL my questions, was patient and understanding, and accommodated the outcome plan for me. I had the first appointment scheduled early at 9am and they were so prompt and arrived before 9am! I am thankful they have come on this memorial day to work for new customers. Corey C and Leo had done the job! He was so kind, went over what they were going to do and got the job done so quickly i was impressed!! I feel comfortable and safe with this company and still in awe of how wonderful these guys have been!! thank you so much!

Yesterday a nice young man name, Tanner, came by. I was unable to speak at the time and asked if he could come back, which he did promptly at the time we had agreed. He was professional, patient and knowledgeable about the products and services. I accepted a one year service agreement and made an appointment for my initial treatment. Devin and Joe came the next day and they arrived promptly as well. Again I found them to be just as professional, patient and knowledgeable. They completed their work in a timely manner and explained to my satisfaction the work they had done. I am very pleased with my experience with Aptive so far.

Alterra Pest Control
Hands down, top notch service from start to finish! Tyler was very professional and went over all the finite details of the service. The initial sevice was scheduled and Adam H. came out to perform the first time out service. He went over the details I previously discussed with Tyler. Adam was extremely thorough and took his time going around the entire house, both front and back yards, and inside/outside the garage. There are "other" pest control companies out there, but Alterra goes that extra mile in customer service, and with Adam's keen "pest eye" my house will continue to stay pest free! Cheers!

North American Home Services is the best! They saved us when we moved into a rental with rats living in the attic and keeping us awake. They cleaned it up, set traps, and we had Rocky to the hardware cloth where the rats were entering. Regarding bugs, they're awesome. Each person that we have had assigned to us is so nice and professional. We love that they will follow us to our new home and take care of us there. the office staff, including Ami, are always reading and willing to answer your questions. My husband and I can not say enough about this company. We will be staying with them for a very long time!

Had our scheduled service done today by our service pro Andy S. He asked if we had any problems or concerns prior to starting. After completing the treatment he explained all the areas he covered. He was very thorough and did not miss anything. He made sure we knew how to contact him if we see any problems come up. It's nice to know that we have a very professional and friendly person who cares about our concerns to be free of pests. Alterra Pest Control is one of those things you try out and find out that you made a great decision.Thanks Andy and Alterra for the great service and helping us be pest free.
Tips & Advices
Irrigation system advantages:
  • Lowers water bill and maintenance time with scheduled watering
  • Evenly distributes water
Irrigation system disadvantages:
  • Professionally installed systems cost between $3,000-$4,000 for a quarter-acre lot.
  • Some do-it-yourself systems cost up to $1,500 but are difficult to install.
  • You may need to call a professional electrician and plumber, adding $300-$600 to your project.
Some plants can stand up to the cold weather, like kale or pansies. These can be planted in the autumn or early winter. Other plants need to wait until the soil is warm and ready. Plant perennial flowers in mid-autumn or mid-spring. If you're planting from seed or sprout, you can generally find information about planting conditions on the package.
Why get artificial grass?
  • Cuts down on lawn maintenance
  • It's environmentally friendly since there‚Äôs no need to water.
  • Artificial grasses may be more attractive than real grass in drought-stricken areas.
Why stick to the real deal?
  • Artificial grass has a high upfront cost - $15 to $20 per square foot.
  • It can be difficult to install.
  • Inexpensive options might look unnatural.
  • It gets hot in the sun.
First, determine which pests you're dealing with. Mounds or tunnels indicate moles or voles. Apply castor oil to your lawn; they'll find another digging spot. Determine which bugs you have by pouring a bucket of soapy water onto the lawn. The bugs will surface so you can identify them. Milky spore and nematodes keep grubs and other bugs at bay. Insecticidal soap also works. The best way to prevent pests is with good yard maintenance. Certain bugs prefer overwatered lawns or yards with thatches. Regular mowing, watering, and dethatching discourage pests from moving in.
Fertilizer isn't always necessary, but it can keep your lawn looking lush and healthy. Use fertilizer with slow release nitrogen so it doesn't encourage weeds to grow. Keep in mind that overfertilizing can spur weed growth. However, under-fertilizing can result in weak grass, which gives weeds more space to take root.
