Recent Review: Technician was scheduled for the next day and arrived promptly as advertised. He was extremely professional, looked at my issue and assured me these were not termites, but carpenter ants. He gave me some suggestions to help ensure they would not be a problem. He also did a cursury inspection of the outside of my property and didn't find any signs of termites, all at no cost. I really appreciated the technicians honesty, and educated recommendations. I would definitely call this company again.

Recent Review: I decided to have my house inspected preventatively for termites as it is now 11 years old. Joe was prompt, clean, mannerly and very helpful as he was performing the inspection. He explained what he was looking for and habits of termites and what I could look for as warning signs in the future. There was no evidence of termites at this time, so I did not need to purchase a treatment. I do, however, have a problem with carpenter bees outside and will purchase a dusting product from them for that. I am also considering having them remove the skunks who have taken up residence in my barn.
Recent Review: An inspection found termites "swarming". The inspector submitted a quote and it seemed high. There was no damage, just the "swarming". A Realtor gave me Terry Murphy's name. He stopped over and gave a quote. It was fine and he went right to work. Believe he said he'd been doing this for 20 years or so. He used Thermador (which everyone seems to use) drilling down around the house. Taught a thing or two about termites before he started. Personable guy. Professional. One year guarantee, which is transferable if house is sold.
Recent Review: THEY DID NOT CHARGE US FOR THE INSPECTION. I WAS INFORMED THAT WE DID NOT HAVE ANY TERMITES. THEY EXPLAINED WHAT TYPE OF BUGS WE HAD AND TOLD US HOW TO PREVENT BUGS FROM COMING IN OUR HOME. THEY DID NOT TRY TO SELL US ON ANYTHING. I HAVE USED THEM FOUR TIMES NOW AND WILL NOT USE ANYONE ELSE.
I was beyond impressed. David was wonderful to work with as we talked through best options for treating our home. He wasn't pushy and came very knowledgeable. After I purchased the Angie's List deal, they set a technician to come out 2 days later. The technician came out and was on time and friendly. Highly Recommend Ace!

Upon inspection, a home I am trying to sell, was found to have "termites". I had two other companies out to inspect, Snowball and one other, and neither could find any evidence of termites. In spite of these contrasting reports, once an inspector finds 'termites', buyers are going to want them treated. I talked to Matt at Snowball and he not only gave me a good, reasonable price for treatment that could be warrantied for a year, but he also explained the process to me. His employees were on time, professional and courteous. Snowball came highly recommended to me and I now see why. I will not hesitate to use them for future work.

DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY. The owner Glen, sent his son out to do our termite treatment in April 2018. While out at our house, his son drilled holes through our concrete front step and through our basement ceiling drywall. This then has allowed water to leak into our basement. Glen sent someone to our house 4 times to "patch" the hole. We were assured each time it wouldn't leak again. Well, guess what, it has. After this company marred our home and allowed water to enter, Glen couldn't get a concrete person to come out and do a proper repair. His suggestion was that he file a claim through his insurance company, which he did. The insurance company is offering to pay for the drywall repair, but nothing with the source of the leak from the hole put in our steps. These holes are still leaking today. I called Glen today and he proceeded to lie and now tell me that the steps had issues prior to his son DRILLING HOLE THROUGH THEM. I couldn't believe what I was hearing. He told me that he will not help me get my steps properly repaired and that an engineer would say there were prior issues. I assure you that this house did not have issues with leaking prior to this treatment. We bought it in May 2017 and had a thorough inspection completed. Now I sit here in tears, as I have been patient and worked with Sure Thing on this since April. Now for some reason they have decided to lie and deny the damage they caused. Unfortunately, now I will have to look into a lawyer. I'm not sure what else to do. The photos attached were of the most recent rain fall and leak, taken on 12/8/2018.

While having roof work done, the crew discovered active termite activity in a moist damaged part of the roof foundation. I needed someone to come out while the shingles were off to see the damage and help with an appropriate solution. Ace was able to send someone within a couple of hours of my phone call. He did a thorough inspection of the roof, the wood that the roofing crew had removed and then of the foundation around my home. I had another pest control company also come out that day. Although the cost for Ace Exterminating was a bit more, the product explanation was better. After doing a little research on my own to learn more about the options, I felt that Ace offered the better product and the better service. They were able to install their Always Active product around my property a couple of days later.

Bill actually has done two pest inspections for me in the past. I was notified on 8/19/10 that I would need to have the home I am purchasing and currently live in, treated for termites prior to my closing. The closing was in four days, on a Monday. I called Bill on Friday 8/20, and he was able to work me in for Monday morning, 8.23, the day of the closing. I could not have closed without the house being treated for termites. Bill understood this and was kind enough to make himself available to perform the termite treatment with very little prior notice. Bill is very professional, prompt, and does a very good job.

I spoke with David on the phone about costs and options for treating my small shed and preventing damage to surrounding fence. This brief conversation alone helped me to save time and money. He was extremely helpful in describing what their treatment would be, what it might cost at a minimum, and some alternative treatments that might more appropriately fit the size of my problem. I greatly appreciate the integrity to not just try and take my money, but to help me get the right work done. Regardless, he still offered to come out and do a free quote focused on the total property and told me the best time of year for an assessment.

THE REPRESENTATIVE WAS LOW KEY, BUT THOROUGH. GAVE AN EXCELLENT PLAN AND A GOOD PRICE. THE SERVICEMEN WHO CAME OUT WERE CAREFUL WORKMEN WHO DID A GOOD JOB. I WAS HAPPY WITH THE WORK THEY DID.

SELLER OF HOUSE PAID FOR ORIGINAL TREATMENT. NO SIGN OF TERMITES SINCE. I CONTACTED MAXIMUM ABOUT A RENEWAL OF THE TREATMENT AFTER ONE YEAR. I WAS SURPRISED THEY NEVER CONTACTED ME. THEY DID COME OUT, AND FOUND NO INFESTATION. THEY SEEMED SOMEWHAT UN-ORGANIZED. I WONDERED IF THE "GUARANTEE" WOULD REALLY MEAN ANYTHING. IN THE 2ND YEAR, THEY NEVER CONTACTED ME ABOUT A RENEWAL, AND DECIDED NOT TO INITIATE THE CALL MYSELF.

I called them to get an estimate. They explained it would cost $125 for them to come out and give me an estimate. I asked if they could ballpark it over the phone, which they did pulling up my home on a county website. Their quote was over twice other estimates that were done in person without a fee to estimate. When I mentioned that, she told me to go with the better deal- done!
