    He did a fantastic job. I would happily hire him again. We have a very difficult old house roof with odd angles and dormers and he was able to investigate the entire house and all corners very well.

    Excellent All A's were well earned. Answered all questions fully taking time to explain the process. Because there was a 2 week follow-up visit, I waited before submitting review. I was impressed enough that I requested annual visits.

    NW Pest Control Inc
    They trapped and covered one hole, but they came back in through another hole.  I called back and somebody came back out that week to find the other hole and patch.  Service is good for 6 months at no extra charge.  They were friendly, prompt and seemed to know what they were doing

    Midcoast Wildlife Specialists
    Absolutely perfectly! Butch and his crew showed up exactly on time and worked efficiently and professionally. They were done almost 2 hours earlier than the original estimate. They removed two fat bats and several years worth of flying squirrel and bat messes, including all the old soiled insulation. They treated the entire space with sterilizer and animal deterrent and then put down two layers of new insulation. (We'll be warmer this winter too!) We have a 2 year guarantee so we have peace of mind that our home is free of critters and CLEAN. We will always go to Midcoast Wildlife Specialists for any future needs and HIGHLY recommend them.

    Advantage Pest Control
    Successful. Complete. Guaranteed with a five-year partnership. Richard Varney personally was the lead of our bat exclusion process. Under his exceptional skill, experience, professionalism, warm personality and hard work, he finally excluded bats from our home. We are into the 3rd summer with no signs of bats. His approach was multi-step and thorough. In the first phase, he worked with a team of professionals to assess the possible locations and patterns where bats had been breeding for possibly 20 years. The problem was way beyond an occasional bat in the home. We had regular bats showing up in the warm season, every night entering and existing, and guano as the morning evidence of their regular presence. Richard Varney was a partner to the general contractor, the roofing experts, and our family. He was present for a smoke test to find the obvious areas in the roof where bats may be entering. We had a major task to assess if a total removal of our roof (only 25 years into what was estimate as a 50-75 year roof) was the last resort to address the chronic bat problem and the ethics of how to handle a potential bat colony. Richard took the information and then methodically set one-way doors for the bats to leave, and painstakingly sealed the areas suspected as entry points. He also used extensive netting and checked the roof regularly every season. He gave us a 5-year guarantee. In addition to the excellent results, Richard was the most available and communicative contractor we have ever met. He returned calls, texts, emails in lightening speed. He was seamless in his scheduling, checking in, reporting back and keeping in touch. Never have we had a professional in the field of home development, construction, maintenance and care with such exceptional communication and professional skills. We also use him for our standard extermination services, and even there, we have had less mice, ants, pantry moths and unwanted visitors than ever before. We give him our highest recommendation possible.

    Advantage Pest Control
    Richard Varney of Advantage Pest Control in South Portland, ME is the only pest control service who has ever been able to get rid of the squirrels that had made a nest in the under eave closet of my old house. In the past four years I have had THREE different companies come and charge me a good deal of money (i.e. $750.00; $950.00 and $1500.00 respectively) and did not eradicate the problem at all. The first time was three years ago and the squirrels did stay gone for a while but they were back this Thanksgiving when the last two services were employed and did nothing except take my money. Richard Varney did things differently than any of these other companies and that is why he is the best. What he didn’t do was just stick a trap up on the roof and expect the squirrels to waltz in it after a few days but no longer than five . . . Both companies said they would seal the holes so there would be no way the squirrels could get back in and both were wrong – they did. Richard came to my house, every day, for over three weeks before he was sure they were out and gone. He trapped the adults but there were still babies. He is the only one I know that put foam in the holes first . . . and then waited to see if it remained or was pushed out – indicating that there was still activity. He built a rest for a trap on the side of the house, because that was where it was needed. He is also the nicest, kindest man I’ve met in this business. I was devastated when the previous company allowed a trapped squirrel to die of exposure on my roof during a severe rainstorm. I called and asked them to please come and get it before it died, and they said, “All their technicians had gone home” . . . and it died a horrible, slow death. Richard was just the opposite. As soon as I texted him that there was a squirrel in the trap, he was on his way over. He cares about both his clients and the animals he needs to trap. You will get no better than RICHARD VARNEY and ADVANTAGE PEST CONTROL. They were simply the only ones in over three years and four companies that could actually do the job they promised. I urge you to contact Advantage Pest Control for any of your future needs.

    Maine Animal Damage Control
    Have had ongoing Groundhog problem for 5 years, the worst was 2009 with 90% garden damage and property damage due to burrows. Local Animal Control only workd part time. This year I decided to get serious, went on-line to research any available resources and found Richard's website. Richard is a Wildlife Control Specialist and Owner of this business. He covers the York to Bangor, ME area. I emailed him one even ininitially and within 15 minutes he called me back. He rebaits the traps as necessary. I check the traps myself daily and call for animal pickup as needed. Richard is a calm, even tempered, professional, who's constantly on the road, focused on what he does, highly knowledgeable, cares a great deal about the animals, and I found him to be very generous with his knowledge..I learned a great deal in just the few short weeks I have been working with him. It has been a privelage to work with him and I wish him continued success.
