Nature's Own Services
I was having a major pest control problem and after I was recommended this company I decided to give it a try. I made a service call and spoke with the office manager Amanda Romero and she was very friendly and very professional. They are willing to come at any time of the day even weekends. We set up a date and time and she gave me specific instructions so when they come they can get right to work quick and easy. I thought that was great that she gave me instructions because most businesses don't tell you anything until they get there and then you waste a good 30 minutes. When the guy got to my place he was very friendly and did his work. It didn't take long but from what I saw he was very professional and knew what he was doing. After he was done with his work he asked if there were any other problems that he can take care of for me. I was surprised because other businesses just go in do their work and leave. Before he left he says if I was having any problems please to contact them immediately so they can take care of the problem. A few days later the manager called to make sure if everything was going okay. Great customer service they truly care about their customers. I will for sure use them again. My pest problem has not continued since they have done their service. I strongly recommend this company to everyone. They truly go over and beyond to help, serve and satisfy their customers. Well done!

Sebastian L. was AWESOME he was ahead of schedule which worked out perfect for me. He came and did a great job very friendly and social. Even though he was ahead of schedule, he took his time, and didn't rush to get to his next stop. We talked shop and he listened as i rambled on about the remodel i did in my kitchen, he gave me some ideas to add on to it. He could have been like Im here to do my job and thats is, but he took the time to do his job and spare a few minutes talking which is a good thing in this fast paced world. He offered to be my regular tech which I will gladly accept. The last guy who came was good too, and he mentioned to write a review for him if i thought he did good. I didn't get around to it so i apologize to him for that. Sebastion didn't bring it up to get me to do it when he was done he was ready to leave. I asked him about it so i could give him a good review. So hope his boss see's this and see's how the little things can make a world of difference. Great job Sebastian L.

EcoShield Pest Control
Im unsure about the other reviews, however i was approached by Ryan from ecoshield and i was impressed by the knowledge and courteous manner in which he was intentive with my pest issues. I promptly contacted him about starting service with them. Today he and the Specalist came promptly at the time discussed and they got to work. I must say i was v ery impressed at the courtsey and efficient way they provided service. My specalist were Phil and Tyler. Service was thorough . Specalist were attentive to my needs. Specalist even scoped out a scorpin lingering on my patio sliced him up in order to keep from harming me and my pets. Thanks Guys! Job well done! By the way payment for the bi monthly service was counsuled on pthe day of inqury and the day of service.

Alterra Pest Control
We've had intentions to resume pest control service at our home since we purchased it and we initially were going to go with the company that the previous homeowners used. However, they charged EXTRA for flea treatment?! Alterra literrally fell from the sky the day after my husband and I discussed pest control service and we signed up a few days ago because they did not charge extra for flea treatment. Glenn came over last night for our first treatment and he was extremely helpful. He explained the service and was able to answer any questions we had. Even if we were his last home for the day, he was not rushed and we feel he did his job thoroughly! We hope Glenn is our regular service professional!

Dorian came to my house this AM and sprayed my yard! Such a warm and personable gentleman! I have always had great services from your company since we started! I told Dorian we were putting our house up for sale because we want to downsize our property size! We have been here 23 yrs. and have enjoyed every moment! We would like to keep your service once we find where we will establish a home. I will also pass on your name to new residence that will love our home as much as we did! Thank you Dorian you are great! There are some new residence that have moved in to the neighborhood, so go get them! Good luck!

Great work done by Felipe Linares! Very thorough, polite and courteous guy to work with. You can tell he's dedicated to his job and wanting to give his company the best reputation possible. He was very detailed in explaining what would be done today, what will happen in the next 30 days and what will be happening in the distant future. He didn't rush at all. He took his time and made sure he got everywhere he could. I will definitely be using this service for a long time, referring to anyone I know with a home, and asking for him to do the work personally every time!Thanks for the hard work!

Alterra Pest Control
This is Linda E. : We had our initial service with our Alterra Pest Service Pro, Austin F., this morning 7/26/13. I was extremely pleased with the service provided today, and Austin did a fantastic job spraying under the eaves, spreading the granules in the yard to take care of fleas and ticks for our wonderful family guard dog Bandit, and treating the entire interior of our home. An initial discount that made the cost very affordable! Thank you also to our excellent sales person Matt J. who turned us on to the great deal on this pest control service."

This review is for Nathan, who has always provided outstanding service at my home. He is serious and gets right down to business when applying his job at the job site. I noticed he makes sure that he always on top of Job description. The expectations of his actions when applying the granules and spraying of chemicals is excellent and when I am asking questions, he is very patient, knowledgable, courteous, and respectful. He is an immaculate employee and I will request his and alterras services in the future. Thank you, Nathan!

Alterra did a great job on the initial visit!For my initial visit I had two service pros, the explained what it was they were going to do. They were on time, very professional. At the end of the service they explained everything they treated and with what chemicals. Just an overall great first impression. I'm looking forward to the future services. I definitely recommend Alterra to anyone looking for great pest control service. The two service pros that provided WOW service were Mike and Sebastian. Thank you,William S.

EcoShield Pest Control
Although I was skeptical in the beginning I am truly pleased with Eco Shield! The customer service is outstanding and if you need them to return before scheduled they do. We had them just spray outside a few months ago and then we had ants in our bathrooms within a week. They came back and we haven't seen any more since! Today Darren V. found a dead opossum in our backyard while treating around our home-he removed it!!!!! I was so grateful for him going above and beyond what was required.
Tips & Advices
Fumigation is dangerous to pets and humans. Liquid termicides, however, are safe to use around pets.
No. Because termite infestations are considered preventable, most home insurance policies do not cover treatments or damage.
It's best to treat an entire home to ensure the termite infestation is completely eliminated. Spot treating costs less, but increases the likelihood of missed colonies. In addition, spot treatments can make a home unattractive to future buyers.
The cost to eliminate termites varies depending on the method. Bait costs between $150-$300, while fumigation costs $1,300-$2,500. Heat treatment costs around $1 per square foot, so a 2,500 square-foot home would cost $2,500.
The length of time depends on the process used:
  • Fumigation takes approximately five days. The termites die quickly, but homeowners must remain out of the house until the chemicals clear.
  • Bait exterminations can take months to destroy an entire colony. The bait kills termites during the molting process. If an insect eats the bait and does not molt, it is unaffected.
  • Heat extermination takes approximately eight hours and is environmentally friendly. This process heats the home to 150 degrees F.
