5 Star Termite & Pest Control
My experience with 5 Star has been very different than the other reviewers. When I first bought my old adobe house, I called a couple of exterminators to learn what my options were. Most wanted to tent my whole house - not an option I wanted to pursue. The 5 Star owner did an inspection and did not find active termites. She explained termites require a certain percent of moisture in wood and since my house was old, the risk of termite destruction was low. She gave me tips on how to minimize risk (install gutters, no landscaping next to house, removing wood, mesquite beans from yard etc.). For more than a decade, I had no termites. In 2014, a jug of adhesive leaked in one room of my house, saturating the wood floors. This attracted termites. I called 5 Star and a technician in a hazmat suit crawled into a crawl space under my floor and treated the wood. This was nasty work but the technician was very professional and congenial. In 2015, a toilet seal failed, saturating the wood floor beneath the linoleum (this was in the area of the previous infestation). I had to gut my bathroom and remodel it as a result of the leak. This year, the termites returned to this area of the house. I called 5 Star and the owner advised me to removed the dying china berry tree in my back yard where I believe termites were nesting and they re-treated the area under my floorboards. The service was prompt and professional. Because 5 Star does not do exterior soil treatment, I called another company to investigate soil treatment options. That company said they would not treat my soil because I have an adobe house with limited underfloor access - they wouldn't even provide me with a no warranty quote. My experience with 5 Star has been very positive. Especially for people living in older masonry homes who aren't interested in "the nuclear option", 5 Star provides low-toxicity treatment options and offers excellent advice on minimizing risk of termite infestation.

I have chemical sensitivities - and this is the only company that services Sierra Vista that is as "green" as it can get, but yet take care of the pests - despite our abnormally intense ant activity. I'm in new construction, so the activity is high - one treatment and the death toll was high. :) The 30 day re-apply didn't need much - even saw the proof that the friendly new lizard resident was not killed - It did get stuck in one of the garage sticky traps, but our regular, Marquise, was very compassionate and showed me how to remove it without injury using oil. I was warned when they were coming and reassured of ways to ensure that I could be there (or not) when they arrived. Marquise and the original "sales" representative were professional, very courteous, and thorough - and put up with all of my many questions with pleasure. I did have a misconception - probably due to my lack of sleep (new move-in). I was under the impression that the 30 day re-apply was gratis/free - included in the original spray, but understand the need to charge that. :) I didn't realize that it was a full re-treatment - I did know that it was for eggs and such. Still, despite the specialty green application this is the same price that I was paying 5 years ago in Washington State (western) for; I believe; the same treatment level. - I like their contractual options too - we plan to stay, so why not commit to a bit longer and get the best deal. :)

I am so pleased with the service we have received from Green Shield Pest Control! I did my research when looking for a pest control company, and Green Shield was one of the very few that guaranteed their work against spiders (which are my arch nemesis). Marquise Atencio is our service technician and we cannot say enough good things about him. He's very attentive to listening to the issues we have around our property and very good at giving me all the options on how we can treat something. Before he leaves he always shows me what he's done and where while explaining the process too. He's very adamant about making sure we're happy (and we are!) and that we're in the know about our service. He's always available to be reached if we have questions at any time which is great! I cannot recommend him enough- nice guy and someone I was totally comfortable with having in and around my home (we've been with other companies where that was NOT the case). Our experience with Marquise and Green Shield have always been positive- we're happy customers and look forward to being for a long time to come!

University Termite & Pest Control
My name is Pearl I reside in Tempe; and I've had University Termite & Pest Control for previous Termite issues a year ago, no issues. All problems were taken care of, now I have new issues with rodents of some kind. I called and was told they could be out tomorrow; I was kinda bummed. BUT no more than an hour later I received a call from one of their technician "Brad" He told me that he was quite a bit away but would come by same day JUST to take care of my issues and see what was going on. Brad was very professional and efficient with his work and showing us that he would take care of the rodent issues. He based a plan around what we had going on and not just an every day same old treatment. He took his time with checking to make sure there were no entry points and then proceeded to trap and bait. I'm very happy with my service professional Brad and enjoyed his knowledge on our issues. Thanks University Termite & Pest Control and Brad for Being professional and timely. Would definitely recommend this pest control service!

When we first moved into this house we had crickets and spiders galore! With our first child soon on it's way we definitely didn't want spiders or bugs in her crib or anywhere near her. The Greenshield people came to our door and my husband agreed to sign up for a years service at about $60 a month. I wasn't too thrilled at him just signing up for pest control, especially with a year long contract, but my mind was quickly change. Our technitian is Scott T. and he has done an excellent in protecting our house. After the second month our spider and cricket problem has disappeared and no pest has even come close to our daughter in our home. Scott T. is also very nice and makes sure to let you know exactly what he's doing and where he will be. Our contract is up in March, we will be staying with them indefinitely.

This company is great! Not only do they use pet-safe, environmentally-friendly products, their technicians deliver the product to you in hybrid cars! In the year plus I've been using their service, I have not seen a single bug, spider, or scorpion, whereas prior I would see a scorpion or two each month in the summer. They schedule services according to breeding cycles to ensure that pests are eliminated before they can become a problem. My technician, Scott, is extremely knowledgeable, polite, and professional. He always goes above and beyond to ensure we are pest-free. It's a pleasure to see his smiling face!

Had a scorpion issue in our house. Called Green Shield and Mike Plamer was our technician. He was so good he came out that SAME day later that evening for us. He understood the urgency we were feeling about these bugs. Mike Palmer was prompt and through with his service treatment. He asked questions and addressed issues we never thought of. He also set us up for easy pay so that its all scheduled and we don't have to worry. He also set our treatments up on a schedule and one that worker for US not just the company!!! I am recommend Mike Plamer and Green Shield to every one I know! Thank you Green Shield!

We love Greenshield wouldn't use anyone else . We have been using them for almost 4 years now and they are always professional and answer any questions we have and work with our crazy schedule without hesitation . We had Mike which was awesome for the last year or so . We now have Marquise he was great also it was his first time coming but he was very friendly and took his time around the house and informed me about a insect he found and researched it with the company . Which is above and beyond doing your job in my opinion .

Dyllon W arrived at our home on time. For me, that is a great first impression of the Greenshield Pest Control Company. He is very professional and knowledgeable on the active pests within our community. Overall, I am impressed with this company based on my interaction with Dyllon W. Service like this is rare and I feel at ease knowing my home is pest free because of this outstanding individual. I provided 4 out of 5 stars because I am awaiting the results of today's treatment. Standby for a 5.

Service just keeps getting better. I've been with GreenShield almost 1 year and I am so thankful for the great service they provide. Our technician Scott T. always does an amazing job to ensure our home and property is best free. Kind, courteous, and informative. What's best is there is amazing peace of mind knowing that if inbetween treatments if we notice the slightest sightings of bugs, that GreenShield will come right back out and treat that area again. Thank you Scott and Greenshield.
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.
