Pest Control reviews in Portland
He came over immediately after he was called.
Upon arrival, he was friendly, and handed my dad a business card;
from there, we discussed our extermination needs.
The yellow jacket nests are gone.
the nests didn't fully exterminate.
I would definitely use
When the appointed day arrived, the representative arrived on time, and immediately identified the insect causing the problem with our deck. He offered to apply the insecticide right away, and we accepted. Within an hour, the whole process was done.
The representative also identified another problem with the deck, which he said was unrelated to the bees. He wasn't selling anything, just being helpful.
Given the diagnosis, I probably could have cured the problem more inexpensively, but was content to pay Alpha to get it taken care of immediately, and to get a major company to stand behind the work.
The trap was re-baited and set two or three times. No squirrels were ever caught. Nearly a month passed and no one checked the trap so I called because I saw the trap had shut and a squirrel was chewing my roof, around the trap, to get at the peanut butter inside. Not an effective squirrel trapping.
I talked to the office staff who were understanding enough. Since they hadn't caught anything and the squirrels were now chewing on my house due to the baited trap, I aired my grievances with a supervisor and they gave me no options other than, "they can reset the trap." I asked them to take the trap down and didn't see any issues for another month.
I got a general contractor in to look at the gutters because I've been hearing scurrying in the attic. Sure enough, there is clear squirrel entry in the gutters, where the pest guy didn't even look. Also, he checked the potential entries that the pest guy found and they were not entries at all.
I called this company back to see if they will bring a trap back out to actually do this job. The office person informs me that she will have to charge me, if they will even take the job. Apparently they aren't good at squirrel control so they are going to stop doing it. I mention that I was interested in having them finish the job and requested a reduced rate since they didn't catch anything the first time. She understood and reasonably told me she would ask a manager. The manager called back and said they wouldn't take the job.
In summary: I paid ahead for investigation and trapping of two animals. I got a poor investigation and no animals trapped. And now they won't even come out to finish the job. $195 down the toilet.
