Squirrels entered attic by chewing through the wooden gable vent, leaving a gaping hole. Technician installed a one-way door over this vent, which allowed the rodents to leave when they needed water or food, but prevented them from re-entering. This process worked as explained, and after a week, the technician removed the one-way door and installed a heavy metal mesh screen over the vent from insi...

Norman assured me by phone that it was too early for termites and identified the insect from my description and said there was no reason to eradicate . He suggested I send a picture in order to confirm. All was done by email and there was no charge. He even suggested that he could do a site visit but it would be a waste of my money. He was very honest and I would definitely contact him in the futu...

We reached out to Dana Pest Control because we had noticed some moisture spots coming through our ceiling which was the result of some animal in our attic. I had called in the morning and spoke to Steve Dana and explained the situation and he was very polite and professional and explained what may be causing the moisture. He advised that his guy, Fred, who has over 18 years experience dealing with...

Steve arrived with Lucy exactly at the time of our appointment and gave me clear instructions on how to create the least distraction for Lucy as she did her job.  Lucy was both efficient and adorable, and Steve was very professional and informative.  It was all over in about 20 minutes.  I would call Dana again in a second if I had any concern about bed bugs.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
Brought Lucy, the dog, to my apartment to search for evidence of bed bugs. (There were none, thank God)
