Hired to remove squirrels from our attic. Left specific instructions with Norm about location of the traps location as our house has 2 distinct unconnected attics. The traps were set on the wrong side of the house and after calling several times they came out to move them. While on the wrong side of the house there was a squirrel captured. When they arrived at the house my wife again mentioned to ...

[Member Name Removed] F., Upon reviewing your work order, I have found that much of what you claim does indeed to appear to be true. The quote on your original inspection notes does say that all three areas will be covered with sheet metal for $155.00. I am not sure why the technician did follow through on what he told you, but he did not. As far as the traps being set on the incorrect spot on the...

They arrived on time, assessed where the skunks were transiting, and set a trap. A second trap was set after we found skunks getting out from a different location. Services were completed in approximately 2 weeks time (mama + 8 babies). The technicians were prompt, professional, good communicators with us. We thank them for what they did. We were a little confused about the pricing and later confi...

Ryan came at the appointed time & professionally explained the procedure and pricing. Performed an all-sides-of-house inspection to confirm only one animal access point. Secured several humane traps on roof near access. I chose to call Ryan each morning to report on the contents of the traps rather than have him make a daily trip. Caught 4 squirrels in 3 days. Traps were removed & access sealed up...

He put down some bait and caught one mouse, though there were probably others. More importantly, the person helping us saw some ways the mice were probably getting into our kitchen, and he closed that access off. We haven't been bothered by the mice return after that. Great work! Larry Weinstein

After a week of trying to catch raccoons, they removed the trap and closed the holes. In past tries over the years, they sometimes did trap and humanely removed raccoons. They are very responsive to calls for help.

On another review, I explained what a great job Robert did screening our very large back deck. Well, since the animals could no longer live there, they decided to move in under our front stoop. They had never done this before. Robert came back out a put screening in to prevent any animals from getting in under our front stoop. It worked! As always, he was polite, prompt, did a great job and cleane...
