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?

Target Pest Control
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.

Above All Exterminating
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!!!

Above All Exterminating
We had some termite issues and called a company to come for an inspection. Well not only was the first company rude, but the estimate was outrageous, so we called ABOVE ALL EXTERMINATING to come out and they were very professional and the gentleman I think that his name was Terrance was very knowledgeable and honest with us, oh yeah and the estimate was almost have the price of the other company. I would recommend ABOVE ALL EXTERMINATING to anyone in need of a pest service. They really are above the rest !!!!

Above All Exterminating
I came on here to find a place to get rid of some cockroaches, being new to the state I basically just had to pick one, so I read the reviews and thought this was as good as place as any. I was blown away, the exterminator was professional, kind, and extremely friendly, he could answer all of my questions and walked me through what he was doing. I wish I could remember the guys name, cause he deserves credit. Great company, I would highly recommend Above All Exterminating to anyone.

Back Bay Pest and Mosqito
Best pest control and crawl space company I have used! True dedication, actual honesty, no overcharging, no upcharging, no upselling. I even have lasting pest results. It's hard to believe I got premium top quality services for such low prices. I love living by the water and not having to worry about bugs in or outside of my home, and not breaking my budget.
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.
