I have been very impressed with Alterra Pest Control. We moved into a basement that had a huge spider problem. After the initial service, I only ran across two spiders in the 6 weeks between. Today my home was treated by Jay Alba. He was very friendly and it's so refreshing to have friendly service these days. He paid extra attention to the basement because I told him how it is the trouble area. Then I was surprised to see he even treated the shed which was never mentioned. He explained to me what he found as far as pests in the yard and what he did to control them. He also seemed knowledgeable on the type of spiders and assured me he didnt come across any that would be dangerous. This service is worth the piece of mind to someone who is terrified of spiders and its nice to know I can call them in between services if I run across more spiders than I can handle!

It pains me to say this, as I have been pretty satisfied with Aptive thus far, but I have had some serious concerns. It seems after each service that there are webs remaining around my foundation and areas connected to my eaves. My first quarterly service was yesterday and I was disappointed. First, I noticed my service tech running along my yard while treating my lawn with granulation. Second, I was told that the company would use a power spray after the initial service. I asked my service tech and he stated that corporate has told them that they're on their way, but it's been over a month and still no power sprays. If you tell a customer about your service then you better deliver. Right now I don't really feel "WOWED" and I am disappointed in the people in charge. If you say you are going to do something, then do it.

Had Mason come by the house yesterday to describe the service and see if we could get on the service. He did a great job, and I wanted to see if I could also use the service at my Georgia Home. As it turns out, my property management company already has a contract with another service, so that didn't work out. I called him back this morning and he took care of me over the phone. We scheduled for this afternoon, and Carson and Nick came by and did an awesome job of explaining everything they were doing, and one did inside and one did outside. Afterwards, they asked if there was anything I had questions on and what to expect over the next couple of weeks. Looking forward to their return visit in a month! Thanks!

I've always tried to take care of our pests on my own, having been weird and researched their lifestyles. Obviously, I couldn't keep up with it all. Especially the wasps! I wanted to have Alterra spray last year, but had just lost my job and funds were measly with my husband still in school. Alterra impressed me with their knowledge of pests, non-aggressive sales approach, philanthropy, and pricing. I'm thrilled that we are in a place to use them this year! A big thank you to our sales rep, Travis Weimer, and our Service Pro, Christian Craig. It's refreshing to have honest employees representing and honoring an honest company. I highly recommend Alterra to anyone!

Alterra provided friendly and informative pest control. Matt C. (my Service Pro today) called to let me know he was running ahead of schedule to see if we could change our scheduled appointment, and arrived just when we said he would (an added bonus). He was very thorough in explaining what he was going to do around the house and yard. When he had finished, he gave a concise report of what he had noticed, problem areas he had found, treatments he had done, and when the next appointment would be. I was very impressed by his professionalism and overall friendliness. Definitely a company, and service expert, that I am comfortable having around my home.

We had Alterra's service tech Christian C come out to our house today, he asked if we knew the procedure, and by this time we were aware of what would happen, and he was happy to work around the house while we kept our dog inside, and then when he was finished, he let us know and we put the dog outside and he worked the inside of the house.Christian was also happy to indulge in my OCD and took care of a couple spider webs that weren't easily accessible, including in my water box at the corner of our yard.He was also super friendly, and we had a great chit chat over games we enjoy.I would recommend Alterra to anyone that has pest problems any time.

Kyle Claiborne serviced our home today and did a fantastic job! He took extra care around our garden/fruit trees and doubled down on our shed and kids treehouse so we don't have bugs/spiders this fall. Thanks for going the extra mile Kyle! Robert did a very nice job today on our house! We love his knowledge and patience in attending to our needs. Some techs just run around the house doing a quick spray, but Robert takes his job seriously and gives the time and attention clients need. We plan to request him every time - thanks Alterra for keeping us spider, wasp, and bug free!

We had a wasp problem, and called Aptive out. We are monthly customers with your service. We had Aptive out a few weeks prior to kill a nest that had popped up on the outside of the home by the garage. But a few weeks later those evil winged creatures made three more nest on the awning by the roof in the front of the house this time. I guess they were striving for penthouse status! Anyways, Braden came to the rescue, and killed all three. So far we haven't had these unwanted guest back So thank you Braden for handling business. Duane and Andrea Domino

Our sales rep, DOUG was super thorough in explaining everything. He was very patient with me while I priced online and read reviews. Even after spending 2 hours explaining everything to me he came back later so my husband could talk to him. Absolutely NO pressure! Then GREG came out and did our first treatment. He was respectful, thorough and took care of us completely! If you ask they will deliver. I feel comfortable in our new home with our three little ones. Thank you so much for being dedicated to service! It's refreshing.

Christian Craig did a great job with our first service today. He was thorough, explained things fully and took time to point out problem spots and corrective actions to us. He was personable and professional. Pest control is a necessary evil for homeowners but so far I've been more comfortable with Alterra than with services we've used in the past. Full disclosure. As stated above this was our first service so this isn't a rating of the effectiveness of the treatments or how the company deals with issues.
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.
