Bah Hum Bug Pest & Termite
I loved these guys to begin with. They were nice and friendly, clean and seemed very trustworthy. We used them for four years and kept our Termite/Moisture inspections up to date with them every single year. Every year they told us we had no termites and our crawl space looked great. We had our last inspection from them 5mos ago and received the thumbs up again.We were selling our 5yr old house and needed a certificate from them that there were no termites/moisture. I thought this was a no brainer because they were the ones telling us for FOUR years that we had no problems. But when they did their inspection for us to be able to sell our house, they told us we needed $3,200 in repairs to seal up our crawl space and install a dehumidifier or they wouldn't sign the certificate. I asked them how it had been fine 5mos ago and for four years and now it was a problem and he said that since it was summer, there was more moisture in our crawl space and the duct work had more condensation on it. I was shown no pictures of any fungi or the moisture readings. Additionally, the technician said 'Don't worry about the cost, it will just come out of your settlement/closing fees, you won't even see it'. I had liked these guys so much in the past that it was unfathomable to me that they might be trying to screw me over. I crawled around the crawl space and didn't see any wood rot, I saw a little fungi but it is August and we live at the beach. My House builder Dad and Brother told me that was normal. And obviously this fungi wasn't a threat when they had inspected the crawl space for the past four years!! But at the smart requests of my realtors and family, I got a second opinion. And as suspected, it was all fine. Moisture levels were higher since we live at the beach but still acceptable, the fungi was not a wood destroying fungi, and we received our certificate. It hurts my heart to write a bad review about these guys because I truly liked them as people and I actually really trusted them. But I'm sorely disappointed in them.

Target Pest Control
We had a bed bug problem in April. We had to call an exterminator because my daughter was getting bit in her crib. I took her to the doctor because of my concern that she maybe just had a rash because we didn't not see any bugs in her bed. The doctor told us it was bed bugs. I was freaked out and started to cry because my baby girl was being bitten. My baby is my life! So we called a few companies and they were really expensive. We went ahead and had Mike come out and do an inspection to see if they were just in her room. He found a few small ones in our couch and love seat, so we went with the whole house treatment just to be sure that we didn't have any in any other rooms. It has been a while since they were here and we haven't seen any signs of an infestation. They gave us a 1 year guarantee, so if they come back we will call Mike to come out again but so far we have been good. He was very knowledgeable about bed bugs I would have given a better rating but the money we paid set us back a little bit. Maybe we can do this a little bit cheaper maybe.

Target Pest Control
I got a call from Mike from Ant Control this afternoon. He was following up with me to make sure we weren't having any more problems with bees. We had a nest of bees come through the wall a couple months ago and was was out of our control so we gave him a chance. He came out to our home and had to extract the nest after about 2 hours from the treatment. We were amazed on how good he was about not making a mess everywhere like we had with another company years ago. He kept it contained and I was very pleased withe the service. I was surprised to get a call from him, almost shocked that he remembered me. It's nice to know that there is a company out there that doesn't just take your money and forget all about you. All and all great job! Will recommend to any neighbors that may need pest control. Thanks Mike!Helpful?

Called ANT for an issue I was having with mice in my downstairs kitchen. The owner came out and inspected around the stove area where we were having the problem. He pulled out the bottom drawer of the stove and found a hole where the gas line was coming up through the floor and noticed some insulation pieces that were torn up. He sealed the opening and looked around for any other places that they might be coming in. He then went into the crawl space and did a mouse treatment. It has been a little over a month and we haven't heard anything or seen anything so me and my wife are completely satisfied. If we have any more issues we will call Mike again. Very professional, on time , and was done in about an hour.

Knowledge is power! Mr. Blackiston provided professional service in every way possible. He has been providing this service for more than 20 years. His attention to details was key to getting the areas of mold and mildew off of our house, sidewalks, siding, bricks, and even our flower bed rocks. His knowledge of chemicals to use, the specific pressure of different areas, and the time he took to ensure the proper cleaning of our mold issues was clearly seen on the finished product. The results have made our home clean, bright and inviting to create a new fresh look in our neighborhood. He is truly a blessing and we look forward to working with him on future projects on our other homes.

Like always you still continue to do great work! I have been working with Marc for several years now. He handles all of my cleanings before I proceed with a staining and always does a great job. He just did a job for me in Smithfield and the customer called and gave me awesome feedback said everyone was very professional and friendly, she wanted to make sure that I passed the message along. Thanks Marc for all the hard and outstanding work you do! Mrs. Jones said her house and deck looked like new! She was also tickled to death that her plants were still alive!

For many years we used several of the larger national companies assuming that we would receive the best quality service only to be let down time and again. Finally we decided to use a local company "Above All Exterminating" and to our surprise this was the best choice we could have ever made.They are very professional, dependable and honest and for the last three years they have managed to continue to keep our home bug free despite having a large family with children.We would highly recommended Above All Exterminating!!!

Amazing job you guys did!! The team did an outstanding job cleaning the Little Creek Commissary! I found the company on the Better Business Bureau, and hired the company to clean the front of the building! Marc had the crew working at 5AM. Thank you for accommodating our needs and time. I also received 3 other quotes from other companies. One company told me it was going to take 2-3 days, Marc had everything taken care of within one day, and I even added an additional section!! Thank you guys for the awesome job!

I called Mr. Blackiston to schedule an appointment for a quote, he came the next day and spent a lot of time discussing the different options of what I needed to get done, power washing the house (stucco) the shed, tree house and camper. He was extremely knowledgeable and explained how and why certain areas had more mold and decay. He showed up on time the following week and far exceeded my expectations. My kids thought that it was a new tree house and a lot of people commented on how amazing my house looked.
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.
