The day after we called for an estimate, Mike came out. He found a few active termite tubes on the foundation outside of the house. He also inspected the inside of the house, and other than one place we showed him with a few little holes in the wall, he didn't find any indication of termites inside. Mike drew a diagram of the house and showed us where he thought it should be treated -- putting Termidor in a trench around the outside of the house and garage to kill any termites that came in from the outside, into holes in the foundation walls around the outside to kill termites that were already in the house, as well as into holes drilled in the foundation underneath the carpet in the room that had evidence of termites and where the outside treatment could not be done because of a common wall with a neighbor. Mike sat down with us and explained the reasons for each part of the treatment that he was recommending. He gave us an estimate, and we discussed a few other option with him and the cost of each. We decided to go with Mike's recommendations and to contract with Action Termite Control for several reasons. Mike was very professional and knowledgeable in answering our questions. Their estimate was very reasonable. This company uses Termidor, which from the research we found on the Internet seems to be somewhat more effective than other chemicals for subterranean termites. And, the company gave us a 10-year warranty. The next day, Brian came out and did all the trenching and drilling and filled it all with Termidor. Then he and a co-worker put the soil back in the trenches, patched the holes in the foundation and put the carpet back down. It took them the better part of a day to do all the work. After they left, we noticed one hole in the foundation that had not been patched. We called and Brian came out the next week to patch it.

Another company had stated that removing termites would cost more than $2,000. Randy didn't try to take advantage of our fears; he was great.

They gave a 5 year warranty for the termite treatment. They were always very polite, punctual, and professional. Spencer was their top technician and I would highly recommend him to anyone. They were very reasonably priced.

APermagon Pest Control
We purchased our home in June 2010. The previous owner had an issue with termites, and Permagon had treated the home for termites in April 2010. Unfortunately, Permagon had asked the previous owner to move a disfunctional water heater in the garage so that a hole could be drilled for pesticide where the water heater sat, but the previous owner declined to move the water heater. Thus, in August 2010, the termites were back. We had the paperwork from Permagon, so we called to see if there was anything they could do. Ted, the owner, came out and tried to get pesticide into the corner where we, unwittingly, had also placed a water heater. We offered to move the water heater, but Ted realized the expense involved, so he tried to work around it. Because he was trying to save us the cost of moving the water heater, Ted had to come back again in September, and now the termites are gone. Amazingly, from my perspective, Permagon honored the warranty given to the previous owner, even though it was likely the previous owner's fault (because he did not move the water heater as requested) that the termites persisted. Permagon did not charge us anything for the two retreatments -- it was very clear that Ted took pride in his work and was determined to rid our house of termites.

The owner of the company was available when I called and took time to answer my questions. The person who answered the phone was always helpful and pleasant. The workmen arrived when expected and did an excellent job.

We have been using them for probably seventeen years now. They have been really good and their rates are good. We are on a contract with them. If ever there is any problem, they come and help us. I don’t know how to rate them on price because I have no comparisons. We would continue to use them in the future.

BThe Killers Pest Control
It is an annual service and they will come as many times as possible to get rid of the ants. They have been out three times so far. They did the initial spray and then they have come two additional times. They have been very responsive to follow up calls. When they initially came out they were on time and did what they said they were going to do. Part of the $500 service is that I can have them out as many times as possible if I see an ongoing infestation of whatever I have. It hasn't been an issue as far as them responding to our phone calls and coming to respray to remove the ants. They have been responsive and have come out but we are still dealing with the ant problem. I don't know how their price compares to other companies.

They did such a good job that we didn't have to have them come back this year. He was really thorough and told us where he was spraying and what to do afterwards. He said to let them know if anything ever happened and they would come back, but there was no need. We have their card ready if the need arises to call them back, I would recommend them to others.
Recent Review: They use a more natural method that reduces the chemicals and they are more ecological. They have good pricing. When we we looking to find a service, their prices were competitive. They will notify us when they are coming out for service and when they are here and I am they are friendly. They are fairly responsive when I have needed them to reschedule or come out for additional services. Most of the technicians have been around for a few years and they are experienced.

Recent Review: Would definitely hire this company again, particularly because of the professionalism and job performed by the technician that Action Termite & Pest Control assigned to my job, Johnny. He explained all the steps thoroughly and was professional, efficient and accommodating. Thank you
