Recent Review: The service was outstanding and effective - the every-present South Florida bugs (ants and spiders) disappeared from our home and didn't start to return for a long time. The company's service was prompt, effective and professional. They were honest about the termite inspection too - we had some wood diggings on the floor that we thought were from termites, but the guy explained that they were from ants, not termites - had he told us they were from termites, we wouldn't have known any better and might have paid for unnecessary treatments. That kind of honesty is appreciated.
Recent Review: We had an ant treatment and a termite inspection. Both were thorough. He told us where the ant problem was, and if the ants return, we may need a shrub treatment in the future. He told us where some wood had rotted, but termites did not cause the rot. He emailed the termite inspection report. There was no high pressure sales pitch to sign up for periodic treatments. We?ll use this company again.
Recent Review: I think it went well? Representative was very professional and knowledgeable. I did not follow him around to see what he did but I'm pretty sure my termite infested ficus trees are doing much better (some I thought were dead are reviving). I have to assume he did the house and that I'm good (I did not have a problem in the house). I did have a palmetto bug problem where I was throwing out 10 bodies a week (at least) he said he could fix that problem too. Not sure what he did (fogged the attic?) but I have seen a big improvement. Maybe I throw out 1-2 bodies a week now if any. So I would recommend them. They did a better job than my monthly exterminator service has done in 14 years!
Recent Review: We just bought a house, and used to use this company in our old town. We got four estimates including one from them. Their estimate was about 1/2 the cost of the next closest bid. When the service people came out, they did a complete inspection of the property and did a really great initial service. Looking around the house 3 days later, I see thousands of dead ants and other bugs that we were providing room and board to without our knowledge. Definitely worth the money, and we'll be using them for our regular pest and termite service.
Recent Review: Super experience. I called for an appointment, Rene came out after phoning ahead to let me know. We discussed what I needed, he measured the house and the detached garage, gave me an estimate in minutes. We called a week later to schedule the appointment. Within days Rene was back with Vikane proof bags and instructions, he walked the perimeter of the house again to check for any potential problems for his crew, and answered any questions I had. A couple of days later (Tuesday) I got the call that the tenting crew would be showing up the scheduled day between 2-6 pm. They came around 4 pm (Wednesday) after Chris called and said they were on their way and had the property tented and gas in by 5:30. Only one crew chief enters the structure to place the lines, fans, and doorlocks. This was the first company we have used (third tenting in 25 years) which injected the gas in two separate locations in the house (flat roof, no attic), so I'm more assured that the Vikane spread through and covered the entire structure. I checked the property several times on Thursday. The tent stayed on a full day. I got a phone call from George on Friday morning letting us know it was safe to occupy the home again. We came home to find the keys where asked him to put them. If you did not see the tent on the house, it would be difficult to know that Captain Termite was even there. Nothing broken, no clips left on the ground, house secured after they left and all windows closed. We're very pleased as it seems difficult to find a tenting company with good reviews. I'd highly recommend Captain Termite.
Recent Review: I had ATM come out last year to treat for subterranean termites. They did a good clean job at a good price. The owner was prompt and professional, as were the men who came to do the work. I found new termites this year. the owner sent someone to investigate and promptly treated my house again with same professionalism and quality. It was explained to me that the termites will swarm at this time of year around my Everglades property and most likely the dead ones in the glass door tracks were not invading my home. No damage to the structure was found or were any termites found swarming inside the structure, but they proceeded to treat the property anyway, at no additional expense to me. It's comforting to find a company that not only stands by their work, but goes out of their way to explain the situation and ease my concerns as a homeowner. Use ATM with confidence.
Recent Review: Service is very poor, missed appointments without explanation. Acts as if we are hassling him to come and check out live termites. He states we are under warranty and because wood is treated termites eat it and die so does not offer to treat anything when he came the one time. Other pest control services state this is untrue anyhow and we have several live colonies in the house. If you are buying a new home under warranty by onpoint either have it reassessed by a legitimate company or look for a different house. Seriously, this warranty appears to be fraud.

Recent Review: I thought we had termites, a big expense. Was told that the sawdust piles were just vary small carpenter type ants. What a relief. Easily could have fooled us into treating for termites. Honest and reasonable price.
Please read my first encounter with this company below: I actually heard of Al Hoffer's from when I bought my house through my inspection company. I knew that since it was a foreclosure house it had to have termites. I was thinking immediately a tent over my house, but when I spoke with one of the termite professional, he recommended I do a fumigation that cost me only $450. So they were very honest upfront, any other company would've tried to struck gold and told me to put a tent immediately! Actual Experience with annual termite treatment Al Hoffer's is the company that treats termites for my house annually now for the past two years. When they come into my house they put on shoe covers so they don't dirty my floor. They always let me know exactly what I should look for where termites are present, like coffee-like droppings. Also, the termite professional goes around the house and lets me know what he's actually looking for, small dot-like holes, later he inserts a needle/pen looking which he presses on to get rid of termites. Slowly and gradually the amount of termites has diminished, but keep in mind that they have been coming to my house for two years + the first year with fumigation now.

AHoffer Pest Solutions
Hoffer was one of two quotes I obtained for termite treatment. I decided to go with them because they presented themselves as highly knowledgeable, reasonable on price and reliable. Julio took his time explaining options and answering all of my questions. Tyrone, the technician who did our treatment, was punctual (actually a few minutes early) and very courteous.

ARick Ricker Termite & Pest Control Inc
Just want to start off with a little history on my termite problem... I purchased this home 4 years ago with extensive termite damage. The previous owners had never had the house treated and they owned it since the 60's. The home was built in 1950 and I'm pretty sure that it hadn't been treated at all until I came along. Little by little we've been repairing the ruined wood throughout the house. About 4 months after purchasing the home, I witnessed my first swarm. I called a co-worker who does pest control on the weekends with his father-in-law's business. They came over and gave me an estimate that was better than the other larger companies I had gotten estimates from, so I went with them. They sprayed with what they told me was Termidor. About 3 days later, I had a swarm. I was told that was normal because the termites were reacting to the disruption in the colony. About a month later I had another swarm. I called them back and they came out and sprayed again. Make a long story short, they came a total of 8 times over the course of 3 years. The swarms just got larger and scarier every time! I just imagined the house turning to saw dust like in the cartoons. I decided it was time to part ways with this other company because they were just not able to control this problem. I called Orkin and Terminix and they both gave me ridiculously high quotes that I simply couldn't afford, plus they had really rotten reviews online. Shortly after that, I joined Angie's List and found Rick Rickers Termite And Pest Control. The reviews said it all. I had an equally excellent experience with them! Tom came out and was very professional and took his time inspecting the house and listening to our horror stories about our termite from h*** problem. He told us exactly what he would do and even brought the cans of Termidor in so we could see the exact product that was going to be used, undiluted, directly from the manufacturers can. We decided to go ahead and schedule the treatment. Tom came out a couple of weeks later and did the job. He was excellent! He took his time and did everything he said he was going to do when he came out for the estimate. It was so nice to have the continuity of having the same person who inspected the home initially come back and do the work. He was so thorough and we haven't had a single live termite crawl on us to this day!!! I am so pleased with the professionalism and service this company has provided. I will continue to recommend them to my neighbors, friends and co-workers. A+++ company!

It was a positive experience. He came, inspected and treated as promised. We have had no visible signs of termites since. We should be getting notification of our one year inspection soon. We plan on keeping up the renewable warranty which seems to be a fair price. UPDATE: We were never contacted by Jett Termite as promised for the one year inspection and renewable warranty. Now we have termites again, first noticed in a different place. I don't know whether he would have caught that had he kept his promise regarding follow up. Beware.

CCOBRA TERMITE CONTROL
The cost represents the 6 years I've kept my warranty in place. When having my windows replaced, new termite activity was discovered. I called Cobra that day, and they sent an inspector out the same day. He said someone would be in contact the same day, to take advantage of the windows being open for treatment No one called. I called the next day and left a message. Nothing. I called the next day and left another message. My window crew had taken the day off to leave time for treatment. Only later that afternoon did I get a call from an exterminator saying he'd be there in 30 min. And if I hadn't been there to take the call? And why did the inspector work for a company with a different name than Cobra? And why was the exterminator from yet a third company? I've no idea, but with that and the lack of callbacks, I'm ending my warranty with Cobra and will find a more reputable one.
