"Inside one of my bedroom windows in less than a couple of hours I had a colony of carpenter ants flying around and multiplying every minute. I wasn't an Angie's list consumer until I spoke with a friend who is already an Angie's list happy ...more & frequent consumer. She recommended I join - I did and purchased this package. They called me within no time, made an immediate appointment & direction what to do until they came. Immediately after the appointment I no longer and since then have not seen any carpenter ants. They have also called me periodically to ensure the ants have not returned and if so they would return at no charge to resolve the situation. "

"I believe the man was overbooked. He never showed when he said he would and arrived late afternoon or evening after I had been waiting all day. He said he was very sorry but was delayed each time by previous appointments. After missed calls, I finally ...more told him it wasn't his fault. He was doing the best he could, but I couldn't wait up for him any longer and not to come back. I cleaned the traps myself and disposed of the mice that were caught. I still had mice and called someone else. "

San Antonio Exterminators Reviews
because they were on Angie's List, my go to list when I need help. They showed up on time and sprayed
my rent house and seem to do a good job. I was called from the renters after only 6 days saying ants were all over the kids bathroom. The kids were screaming in the back ground.
I had not bought the warranty ...more that was about $50.00 more for only 90 days. I called Apple and said that ants were back in less than a week and come back to spray this bathroom again. I was told that would cost me another $69. I felt that was way out of line. They did tell me I could use the Angie coupon and only have to pay $49. WOW what a deal.
I was transferred to the supervisor she was not very helpful at all. I was upset that a pest treatment would not be effective for less one week.
I felt I was being ripped off because they would not go back to respray a small bathroom. I will never use them again and told the supervisor I would be writing a bad review to Angie's list, she really didn't seem to care.
"We freaked out after doing some light tree-trimming, thought we had termites. Called
at 12:30 PM, and after speaking with the dispatcher, received a call that there was a person in the area who could stop by to take a look. Within two hours, the individual was on-site, evaluated our problem (not termites), had sprayed for the ...more problem we did end up having, and then sprayed our entire yard (every tree/plant) as well as the inside of our house. They gave us a fair price for both, and were very friendly and courteous the entire time. We were afraid we wouldn't be able to get someone reputable until at least a week later because it was a holiday weekend. Very impressed all around. Would definitely call them again. "
"Bought A coupon from the List. requested to be scheduled on a Monday or
Tuesdayvia the Anies List IM feature Dallas scheduler orignallt
schedule me for a Saturday, Not an option I requested due to my work
schedule. They readjust and scheduled for a Monday at noon, tech showed
up early, I was not home, sprayed the yard. ...more The ten the tech left my
gate open, although she made not have been able to re-close properly, It
is an old wooden gate and does require, that is out of true. I would have preferred to be present when the
treatment was applied. The tech advised that due to the possibility of
rain she came early to complete the job. I won't be using them again, unless I can be present for the treatment.
So an overall B minus.
"The servicewoman was extremely prompt and professional, easy to work with, polite and friendly. I had requested that no chemicals be used that might also inadvertently harm bees, and she provided a safe alternative. We actually had this service done at two separate addresses, both with rather large yards, and I would estimate that it took approximately ...more 30-45 minutes per site.
As far as effectiveness, one yard seemed to benefit more than the other, but both yards seemed to have fewer Evil Bloodsuckers than before the treatment, although the change was not as dramatic as I had hoped. It has been about three weeks, and the mosquito population seems to be increasing again. Still, when you consider that it was impossible to go outside without head-to-toe bug repellent and using several cans of Yard Guard each day, I would say this spray service is more economical and certainly less trouble.
I would suggest trying to get your neighbors to treat their yards at the same time, as that would probably improve the effectiveness for everyone. "
"Well, first of all, I forgot all about my appointment. They called me about 10 minutes past the scheduled time. Luckily I was right around the corner and they offered to wait for me to get back to the house. THANK YOU!!!
The person doing the inspection was very positive and very informative. He inspected the home quickly but thoroughly, explained ...more what he saw, and proceeded to execute the plan. He was sure to tell me that if this plan of action did not resolve the issue, to call him and he would make a new plan.
I would highly recommend this person to anyone who has a rodent problem. He told me that I may not notice the effects of the treatment for 10 days, and although I know the rats aren't gone completely (I've seen one since he came), I stopped hearing them in our subfloor area 3 days after he came out. "
"Setting up appointment went well.
I was asked how I heard about them and I said Angie's list.
She said I would get 20% off.
Technician arrived on time.
For future reference contractors should not block drive way without consent of client.
My concern was when I was told that I was getting a 1 year guarantee on attic treatment and ...more he put a small machine into the attic opening for what seemed like a minute at most. Just don't see how that treated my attic but I'm not a pest control expert.
The rest of the treatment went fairly well inside.
I understood "granules" were placed around the exterior as well as spray.
Next he asked me to move my vehicle for lawn and mosquito treatment.
I noted long hoses being unraveled.
He handed me some flyers and we settled the bill.
When I returned that evening I know test the sprinkler head closest to the front door was snapped off
I can't say for sure that the technician broke it while pulling the hose but I can say the only other times (2) it has been broken, was when myself or my wife snapped it in half while pulling our garden hose. So, I can dud deuce that it probably happened while doing the lawn treatment.
The day was cloudy and that night we had thunderstorms and significant rain.
The next day I contacted Apple and asked how the significant rainfall would effect the mosquito treatment. I did not mention the broken sprinkler head.
I was told that their should have been enough "drying" time and that the outside granules were actually activated by the rain. When asked about the mosquito treatment , she said they had no control over the rain but that they could re-treat the lawn at a reduced rate.
I told her that maybe they should advise customers when there is a possibility of rain to possibly delay the outside treatment.
I also asked about my 20% discount. She said she would check and see if had been applied.
I was out of town for the weekend,
When I returned:
My mosquito problem does not appear diminished even slightly. My pups don't want to go outside.
There are ants all over the deck and backyard.
My daughter is still finding "baby" spiders in her room (upstairs) and killing spiders in her bathroom.
There are spiders outside my front door.
The "attic" treatment still bothers me as to how effective that treatment was performed.
Overall, we did not have an "infestation" so I'm not at all happy with the service as I see no effective response.
Yes, I did receive my 20% discount but that is not any form of consolation.
