I don't know of any specifically in your area. A good way to find one though is through a review site. You could also check pest control sites for discounts or deals, just make sure those companies are reputable and have good reviews. Good luck in your search Tupper.

Tupper, great question regarding a good pest control company. There's nothing worse then having pests, insects, etc. in your residence. I'd recommend getting a few bids from licensed, reputable professionals. Many times pest control companies can come out and give you a bid. Good luck, I hope you're pest free soon!

Have you tried talking to your neighbors. The chances are pretty high that they've hired somebody to take care of the pests. I would like to find someone to kill my ants as well. Let me know if you find anything.

I second talking to your neighbors. If there's a pest problem on your property, then your neighbors have probably had something similar. It can be a good way to get recommendations as well. Every situation is different, though, so you might end up with something other than what they used.

I would first recommend determining what you feel is "affordable" since that could mean something different to everyone. Once you know what price you would be content with, get a few different quotes from various pest control companies. Then review their service and see if you know anyone who has used them before.

I would suggest calling local friends and family in that area. They should be able to give you plenty of recommendations and help you know who to call. Not only that, but they can also know who not to call. I would definitely start by calling them soon.

Unfortunately, I live in Texas, so I cannot recommend a pest control specialist in your area. However, there are a few tricks I know that should help you out in any location. I would start by asking your neighbors for a referral. If you have a pest problem, there is a good chance that someone else in the area has had the same infestation. Additionally, I would suggest getting several quotes. They are usually free, and it doesn't hurt to ask.

I agree with Cory, you're going to have to ask for referrals. The internet is also a great resource to find these services. You don't have to wait for a reply on this site. You can just google pest control in your area, and most likely you'll find what you are looking for.

Like Jackson said, I would recommend getting quotes from a few companies. Make sure that the few companies you do get quotes from have good reviews on angie's list, yelp, and other internet sites. Personally, I would recommend Gold Seal Pest Control- They always do great work and have been around for awhile.

Hope this helps!

We had excellent experience with Gold Seal. I'm a Board Member of a 25 unit condo in downtown Oak Park. For a living I am an Online Researcher so I did extensive research into this area. Elia Levin, owner of Gold Seal was efficient, professional and very responsive. I'd highly recommend working with them they work as a team and get the job done.

I agree with others who suggest talking to people locally. Your next door neighbors really are your best resource for knowing which kinds of pests occupy the area and which pest control services are best. You may also consider doing some research on which kinds of pests are common in the climate or geographical region where you live. When you get the quotes, make sure to get them in writing.

I would call around to local friends and family that have hired pest control services before. They should be able to recommend you to someone around your area. They can also help answer any questions you have. Good luck and I hope everything works out for you!

I would suggest getting quotes from a few of the companies in the area. You can look at reviews during the process and narrow it down to the best balance between review and quote that you can find. I would suggest focusing in on the quality of the work more than the price though. You are having a problem with the pests already. You wouldn't want to have the problem persist after hiring someone to take care of it.

Jackson is exactly right, you should always get quotes from a few different companies. That way you can make sure that you're getting the best deal possible. Pest problems can really be a pain to fix, so you're going to want to get it taken care of right the first time. Good luck, and I hope that you're able to get the help that you need.

I would check around your area and see if there are any companies around you. Yellow Pages can help you with this as well as getting recommendations from the locals. This should be able to give you a few ideas. Good luck and I hope everything works out!

I would say that the best way to find the best pest control for you is to ask around for references. Your friends and family must know of some good pest control companies in your area. It is also a good idea to try out a bunch of different companies before you stick with just one. This can take a lot of time, but it is definitely worth it in the long run.

I would suggest calling friends or family members around that area. They should be able to help you find the right one for you and what you need. Being locals, they should also help answer any other questions you have. Good luck and I hope you find everything you need!

I think there are times when you can get an exterminator out to your flat to assess the problem. They give you a diagnosis of what kind of pests may be in your house, and from there they can give you rates. I think this method works really well!

I have to disagree with you, Matt. In my experience, the large franchises provide unreliable service. They are just too big to control quality effectively. That is why I always hire a local service. As a matter of fact, I need to get a property inspected for pests by next week.

Which pest are you referring to; rodents, bedbugs or roaches? Nevernest is decent for rats, mice and squirrels
0 votes
I am relieved that I am not the only person with a squirrel problem. A huge family has moved into my attic, and they are determined to stay. I don't know anyone who has had this issue, so I figured that I was the only one. If other people have dealt with squirrels, I am sure that someone has come up with an effective removal technique. You have given me hope.

I was going to ask the same question. "Pest control" can mean a lot of different things. Find a company that specializes in the particular problem you're having. If you have a termite infestation, that's going to require a different approach than a nest of mice. |
