I wish we were perfect. Sadly it isn't possible in the real world. When a mistake does happen we do everything we can to make it right. In this case we never got the chance - she called once, something fouled up with the message, and she went straight to an F review. A bit unfair for someone we have never done work for or even talked to. Anytime you don't hear back from us promptly there was likel...

R&D Pest Services has been providing rodent bait station services to ensure that critters remain outside my home. Our tech, Marco, has been great answering questions, always leaves a note summarizing his observations, and is very tidy with his work. Ever since R&D began servicing my home, the number of rodents I have seen outside has drastically gone down.

He came on time and sprayed all around the house. The ants went away for about 7 weeks, then returned. I called them for help and he said they were booked all week and he would call me to arrange something for the next week. He never called. I couldn't wait that long anyway, so I sprayed Raid all around the outside of the house where the ants were coming in. That has worked for several weeks so fa...

Tried everything myself I could think of, nothing worked consistently. I have a sensitivity to chemicals so I was very selective in finding the right company. I am an organic gardener so using the right product was very important to me. I have had a contract with them for about 3 years now. Dave was amazing at educating me about the product and making me feel comfortable with its use. He is very k...

I used them last year and the ants disappeared for almost a year. So, when the ants came back, I called R&D again. They came out quickly and sprayed all around my house and yards. The ants left immediately and haven’t returned.

Dave comes every 2 months. We now have no worries about ants. He always calls and lets us know when he is coming. He encourages us to call if we have any problems before his next scheduled visit. He’s friendly and reliable. It a local company and would highly recommend.
