Reviews of Fast Response Animal Control Near You

FThe Master Trapper Inc
My husband and I woke up at 1 am to find a bat flying around in our bedroom.  We located the bat in another part of the house and I got on Angies List to find a 24 hr. emergency animal removal service.  Called the number I believe two times and all I got was a vm. Left messages and never got a return call until 7 am the next day. So much for "24-hr. emergency service"

It went well. I appreciated that they were able to come out in less than 24 hours to take care of the hornets' nest.

They do a great job. They are wonderful people. We have very few bugs. When we have pest they come and take care of them. Once they made an emergency visit for a snake incident. They caught it and took it away.

I placed an emergency call since we had a snake in front of the house. He came right along. He grabbed it and put it in a case and said since we are not supposed to kill it so he would let it in somewhere in the woods. It was a huge black rat snake and he managed to do it.

The service was very good. We had no problems with them whatsoever. They were able to come in an emergency situation and get the job done quickly. They answered all of our questions and guaranteed their work. They are very reasonable in price as well.

FBioTech Pest Management
There is something in my attic. Could be a ghost up there scratching and being a nuisance but I'm more inclined to believe it's some annoying, living critter. My husband called Biotech based on their reviews-----I later noticed that they have quite a few 1-star reviews. He made an appointment 3 days in advance and we were given a window of time. I'm also a business owner. However, I made it a point to totally re-arrange my clients so that I would be home to receive them during the time window. In short, they canceled within a couple of hours of our appointment siting "emergency". Emergency? Huh? What about MY emergency? In fact, I had a 3 day wait so why would someone else's "emergency" take priority over mine? They had the gall to leave me a message requesting I reschedule. Chile, please! I'd strongly advise you not to deal with these people. I'll also be giving them a poor report on Angie's List. This is not how a professional company treats its potential customers.

Two workers sealed all siding corners with silicone and metal on corners; sealed an unused exhaust fan opening with 24 gauge metal; sealed freeze board around house; sealed around stoops with mortar and sealed a/c lines with metal and sealed door frames with white caulk; installed kitchen door sweep.  Workers arrived on time and were very pleasant and diligently performed the sealing of my house. Took about a couple of hours.

A family of birds had taken up residence in the crown molding of my home. I called Trappro and someone came to my house within 24 hours. Steve called 30 minutes prior to his arrival and as actually an hour earlier than the time window that had agreed to, so he had to wait for me to get home! Steve looked at the situation (assured me that there were no eggs or babies yet), cleared out the birds and their mess, sealed up the hole, and swept away the debris. Steve was prompt, courteous, knowledgeable and friendly.

AA T & R TRAPPING SERVICE
We had oppossums getting into our air-conditioning ducts, and eventually into our basement. Phil came out from ATand R trapping the day we called and did a thorough job of examining things and figuring out the problem. He immediately went to work to trap and take away the critters. Also came out at night on very short notice for an emergency call. After making sure the oppossums were out he proceeded to critter-proof the holes in our foundation and walls and re-route dryer vent. All work was done well, professionally, and fairly-priced.

It went well.  Milton scheduled us as soon as we called him and was available the next day.  He also arrived well within his stated arrival time, and waited for us for a little while - we had texted him that an emergency was taking us away from home for about 15 minutes.  He inspected and left traps and explained to us how mice often gain access to our kind of house.  He was extremely helpful and we would definitely use him again.

AAdcocks Trapping Service
Prompt. knowledgeable.  Raccoon-savvy.  Not cheap, but quality work.  Neat, strong and all work comes with a 5-year warranty against animal re-entry. Now, if a critter breaks in, Adcock pays for the damage. (Raccoons once did $6,000 damage to my attic.)  I have been trying several different techniques to construct barriers to the raccoons climbing the corners of my siding. Adcock's approach was different -- "You can't stop em from climbing up on your roof; let em.  But when they find all their entries sealed with 24-guage metal, they will move on -- to your neighbor's house."  ;-) Yes, I warned them.  I'm giving Adcock's a conditional rating of 'A'.  We'll see if I make any new raccoon friends in the next 5 years.

AAdcocks Trapping Service
We had a loud scratching noise in our kitchen on a Saturday night and needed to have emergency service to trap the raccoon that had found it's way in as it was digging through the drywall.  We call Adcock's Trapping based on the Angie's list reviews and they came on Sunday morning.  They found the location where the raccoon was entering and set up traps to capture it.  Once the traps were set, they came by every day to check.  On the 4th day, the raccoon was caught.  When they came to remove the raccoon, they sealed the entrances and fixed the damage caused by the raccoon.  They also inspected the house to determine any other possible entrances at later times.  Everything was done timely and professionally.  We would recommend them to others who have the same issues.

AVeteran Pest & Wildlife Services
We were very impressed with Veteran Pest & Wildlife. We called them because we heard sounds of a raccoon in our attic; we spoke first with the owner, Morgan, who asked a few questions about what we heard/saw, and sent Jonathan within just a couple of days to have a closer look. Jonathan took photos in the attic, discussed those with Morgan, confirmed their "diagnosis" that the suspect was probably a raccoon, and installed a trap; at the same time, he also installed a few mouse/rat feeding stations around the house because we had had some problems before on our very wooded lot. Twice weekly, he returned to the house to check the trap and re-bait. After three weeks we had not caught a raccoon, and we had not heard any activity in the attic; the trap was removed. We were advised that this can occur with raccoons. Having confirmed the raccoon wasn't in the attic anymore, Jonathan repaired the gable vent through which the raccoon had entered. During this same period, we had very clear evidence that a squirrel was coming and going into a first-floor outside air vent that leads to a metal wood-burning fireplace. They did confirm that there was a squirrel and in fact were able to trap it "on the fly" as it emerged from the vent. By the way, the bait stations do show signs of rodent activity, so those were worthwhile.

AAdcocks Trapping Service
We recently moved into this house, and on the first night we heard some small animal activity coming from within the walls or attic.  We made a note to call an exterminator, but after the first 2 nights we never heard the noise again, nor did we see any evidence of animals inside the home, so we didn't make it a priority.  But then, I found a small animal (yikes) in the lower level of my house on a Saturday night, around 11:00pm.  I panicked, ran out of the room, stuffed a towel under the door and left the house.   On Sunday morning I called Adcock's Trapping Service, to schedule someone to come out and perform the animal removal.  The associate on the phone was very courteous, professional and knowledgeable.  I was surprised that anyone answered the phone on a Sunday morning!  The associate on the phone gave me the choice of having a technician/trapper come out that day, and pay an extra fee for emergency service, or wait until Monday.  I opted for the emergency service.  The fee for a home inspection was $95.00, which we were told would be applied to any subsequent service we might schedule.  The $125.00 emergency service fee was extra.   The technician, Don, came out within a few hours, went into the barricaded room, and identified the animal--a flying squirrel.  He then got a pair of sturdy gloves, went back into the room and in very short order came out with the animal in a humane but firm grip and released it back into the woods adjacent to our house.  This was exactly what I had hoped for.  I subscribe to the philosophy that there is no need to kill an animal that finds its way into our house unless its presence creates an imminent danger to us.  Adcock's website seemed to offer services that would be consistent with these views, and that is why I chose them.   After removing the flying squirrel, Don did a thorough inspection inside and outside the house to determine where the animals might be getting into the house. He went through each room, even closets, went into the attic, got up on a ladder and looked at the roof line all around the perimeter of the house, went up on the roof, inspected our skylights and entire roof, and checked out the chimney. He went over his findings with me, and indicated that this was an inspection/assessment, not an estimate.  He did not find any evidence of animals inside our living spaces, but he did see evidence of squirrels and possibly mice in the attic.  He said he would convey the results of his inspection and assessment to the estimator(s) at Adcock's and then they would send out a formal estimate for exclusion services to us via mail.  He took the time to explain what service options would likely be proposed, and explained what their exclusion service would consist of. The technician then asked if I wanted to have traps set when he left, but I really didn't want that.  He agreed that I didn't need them, but if I'd really wanted traps set, he'd do it.  I have to say, I was impressed with Don.  As the technician had described to me, we received a written estimate for exclusion services from Adcock's in the mail a few days later, and we have now scheduled the service.  They are scheduled to come out this Wednesday, December 19.   We will post a follow up later.

The technician arrived an hour and a half later. He came into DC from the Eastern Shore area of Maryland. He was very professional and stayed until 1130 PM when he finally was able to catch the squirrel. He even had to take apart the toilet because the squirrel had climbed up behind the toilet tank. I am very impressed with the technician despite the lack of courtesy by reception and length of time to arrive.

Jacob came out to my home on an emergency basis at around 8:30 PM. I had the mother raccoon on the roof trying to get into the house to the raccoon babies, the neighbors dog in my yard barking at the raccoon and the cries of baby raccoons in my ceiling. I was frantic as I did not want the babies to die. Jacob came out and removed the one way door that another Company had put up and reached in and got one of the babies out and put it where the mother could get it. He later crawled into the tight space and searched for the rest of the babies. He found the last one and put it in a box so the mother would come and get it. The mother raccoon was frantic as well. She came and got the last baby out of the box and took it away. He covered the hole with cardboard for 48 hours just in case there was still an unfound baby and then returned and installed a new gable vent, screened it and also screened another existing vent on my home. I had another Pest Control company working for a week before contacting Jacob. He did a wonderful job and I would highly recommend him. Thank you, Jacob

Our grandchildren found a dead deer in the front flowerbed this morning. I call Fairfax County non-emergency line and was informed that dead animal removal was the home owner's responsibility. I searched Angie's list tried one other company listed, but they did not remove dead animals. I called Destination Wildlife Control, and let a message at 11:05 AM. Jacob returned my call at 11:10 AM. He advised me that one of his team was in Springfield and could come over in about 1 hour if I could e-mail my name, address and phone number since he was driving. I e-mailed the information. At 11:58 AM the team member called and advise that he had the address and would arrive in about 20 minutes. By 12:30 PM the dead deer was removed, the bill was paid, and the team member was on his way.   NOW THIS IS WHAT YOU CALL " SERVICE".

As person without pets, I was quite surprised to discover we had fleas. I chose this company based on the angies list reports. They were able to come out the next day and treat. The person on the phone was very nice but did not take the time to explain the procedure to me. He told me that the technician would do all that. He could not even tell me what chemicals they would use. I was a little diappointed by that but needed immediate service. The technician came 20 minutes after my 2 hour window but he did call and tell me he was running late. The technician explained what chemicals he was using but stressed that this is a long term treatment and that I could come back in the house and still have some fleas. Chemical one was spread on fabrics - rugs, sofas chairs etc. Checmical two was sprayed around the baseboards. The warranty is 90 days and they will come back to retreat. He told me we had to stay out of the house for two hours. Since we have a baby and we are paranoid we did not come back for a day. Two days later or so I heard bird noises coming from the bathroom vent. Again, I called the company and they were able to get a technician out the next day. By then, the bird had left but they were able to install vent covers. The technician did not have the covers/drill on his truck so he had to come back on a third day. All in all I thought they were professional and seemed to know what they were talking about. However not having the tools on the truck sort of ignored me. I think I will keep their number around for other emergencies but I might try another company of another type of problem arises.

FHumane Wildlife Conflict Resolution LLC
I'm extremely disappointed in this company- even more so because of the excellent reviews on AL and other sites. My husband and I have a groundhog wreaking havoc under our barn, and were referred to Humane Wildlife Conflict Resolution by our pest control company. We've called several times over the past week and a half, and each time someone has taken our contact information and indicated that we would receive a call shortly to schedule a time for someone to come out. The first two times, we did not receive a call, but I was willing to give them the benefit of the doubt due to the recommendation by a company we trust, and because of their great reviews. I tried again yesterday, and got the same answer (give us your phone number and address and someone will get back to you). There was no apology for the non-response or even acknowledgement of our previous calls, and it's been almost 24 hours and still no call back. Now I'm on AL looking for another company to give my business to since Humane Wildlife Conflict Resolution does not seem interested in adding us as a customer. I'll also be telling my pest control company that I suggest they not recommend this company in the future.

MTB responded to a Big Deal that I purchased.  The contractor spent no more than 15 minutes putting down glue traps, said he did not do any sealing of areas where the mice might be coming in, but he recommended and referred me to his ex brother in law.  I called that individual, who came and charged me another $200 to seal areas in my kitchen that he said were vulnerabilities.  After about an hour of work, he left.  A month later mice were back, and I called him and he agreed to come back.  However, he canceled twice claiming family emergencies.  A third time, he simply failed to show up.  When I called him on this, he had no excuses and did not even offer to come back.  DO NOT DEAL WITH THIS COMPANY.

Business Description: Has your home been invaded by mice? Don't just settle for an exterminator that offers to put down sticky traps, and put you on a maintenance plan. That doesn't permanently solve the problem. The BioTech method for solving a mice problem is to: 1) Perform a thorough inspection of your home to figure out what is attracting them, how they are getting in and where they are hiding. Then, customize a removal and exclusion strategy for your home. 2) Remove the current population of mice and seal entry points using a proprietary method we developed from over a decade of exclusion experience. What sets us apart is our expertise in home improvement. 3) Give you a 1-year warranty to back up our work. The longest warranty in the industry. We also take care of rats, squirrels, raccoons, and common pests local to the Washington DC area.
