AA T & R TRAPPING SERVICE
Phil came out and talked to us about his services.  He got information from us so that he could locate the traps in the best places; when the traps initially failed to catch any groundhogs, he moved the traps based on where I had seen the groundhogs the day before. On the following two days, he trapped a mother and younger groundhog!  (Also a squirrel which was released.)  There is still one trap left in case there are any more groundhogs under the deck.  A.T. and R. is excellent!  I recommend them highly!  I wanted the groundhogs removed humanely rather than exterminated and this worked really well.  It is also refreshing to have services provided by nice and knowledgeable professionals - we couldn't be more pleased with the services provided by A.T. and R.

FRuss Termite & Pest Control
I hired Russ Pest last October to remove a groundhog in my back yard. He took my cage and was quick to get the animal removed and offered a 1 yr warranty (written on my contract). I called him a number of times since July 10th because of the returning issue, I have yet to see a cage and my dog won't go into the yard. Every time I call there has been an excuse and a promise to get out to my home. It's truly sad that I try to give small business a chance and there is no honor or respect for the customer. I will never use them again and I suggest you stay away.

ACritter Control
Excellent service. Eric set several traps for both types of rodents and installed a grid around the edge of the barn to prevent them from digging under the concrete slab in the barn. In about a month's time 8 groundhogs and 1 mole were eliminated. Critter Control did a great job and Eric even came to check the traps on weekends when necessary. Highly recommend this company.

BAdcocks Trapping Service
After the traps had been set, with 8 hours of setting, the groundhog was captured. However, since it was late at night when I called for someone to pickup the animal, I got no response. There were 2 large dogs in the area that heard the cry from the groundhog and attacked his cage.. I had to fight off the dogs to save the groundhog's life ?? All in all, effective removal of ground hog.. Should have a plane for pick up of pests after hours to avoid same situation again..

FEnvironmental Pest Control
Choosing Environmental Pest Control for trapping and removing a groundhog from my property was the worst mistake I've made in a long time. The initial contact came to my home and I showed him 5 places I've seen a groundhog come and go (Both ends of 2 sheds and a wood pile). On my first "Trapping Day" 1 trap was set. I asked why only 1 trap was set when there were 4 or 5 known active entrances/exits. I was told there is only space on the truck for 1 trap. The trapping was to take place over a 3 day period, with someone coming each day to check the trap and re-bait if necessary. After the initial day (Monday) when the trap was setup, no one came until the end of the week (Saturday). The main reason the person came on Saturday was to close the trap for the weekend because no one was working on Sunday. The next day (Monday) another person came to the house to re-open the trap and to put some bait in it. While there, he sprayed something called CB 80 Insecticide Aerosol into each of the 4 entrances/exits under the sheds. I asked what that was for and I was told; groundhogs don't like the smell of it, so it should make them come out. My first thought was if it makes them come out, it will also make them avoid the area, thus avoiding the trap. On Tuesday the person came checked the trap, and saw no need to "refresh" the bait in the trap, so the old bait from the day before was left there. In the end my 3 days of service came and went, and to no surprise of mine, the trapping was unsuccessful. This, in my opinion, was a total waste of $300.00. If I had not known the company was in the business of "Trapping" I would have never guessed. I will never use this company again. I will never refer this company to anyone. I will always discourage everyone from using this company. During the first week, (the week that no one showed up until the end of the week to close the trap), I knew I had just wasted $300.00 and the trapping project would end in failure. The project was destined to fail. There was failure on many levels, I'm more mad at myself for giving this company $300.00 and my trust they would do a good job, than I am at the company for the projects complete failure. I wrote and asked what I'm supposed to do next, since the trapping was unsuccessful. The response I received was "Unfortunately there’s nothing we can do in a situation like this unless we were to attempt to trap for an extended period of time. Our trap was on the property for more than 3 days to try and catch the groundhog, but unfortunately we can’t control wildlife and trapping isn’t always successful." In my opinion, had there been 4 or 5 traps set, not 1 (for the 4 or 5 active entrances/exits) and had someone come every day to put fresh bait in the trap(s), and had someone not sprayed CB 80 Insecticide Aerosol into all 4 of the active entrances/exits the trapping project may have had a better chance at success. Unfortunately, none of these things happened during the duration of my project, and the project ended in failure.

FRuss Termite & Pest Control
Groundhog was removed and he offered a 1 year warranty. Another groundhog went into the same hole, I called a number of time for him to honor the warranty with no success. I wrote a negative review on him with home advisor and he called and told me if I remove the review he would honor the warranty.

AVeteran Pest & Wildlife Services
They were outstanding from the start. We discussed what was going on over the phone, and after coming out to look the situation over, we decided it was probably a groundhog (possibly a fox as I had seen some recently). A trap was set and the catching began! We (they) got a skunk, a opossum, another skunk, and finally a groundhog. I let the opossum go as they're not relocated (euthanized), but the rest were relocated. FYI, groundhogs are pretty friendly - I fed him while we were waiting for his pickup (it was the weekend). I was not charged extra for the skunks, even though they do cost more if that's thought to be your issue (understandably). I really want to express this - a real friendly HONEST bunch. Helped renew my faith in people.

FCritter Control of Northern Virginia
Complete failure. After 10 days no groundhog was caught, and that was the limit of the service we had paid for (also, they don't leave the trap on the weekends). So after ten days of just leaving a trap in our yard and sending one guy to look at it every day, we had to pay $275 for NO RESULTS AT ALL.

FFanatic Pest Control
Fanatic Pest Control came out and set a trap where the hole was under our gazebo to catch the gopher or groundhog and all we managed to catch were squirrels. They came back and set another trap on the opposite side of the gazebo so now we had two of them. We purchaed apple after apple as bait and still all we caught were squirrels. One time we caught a skunk and we had to hire another company to come and get it because Fanatic would not do it. It's been over a year and we still have one of their traps in our backyard as well as the gopher or groundhog.

AFormerly Connor's an Ehrlich Company
They came out three times on three separate days to inspect, set traps, spray pest deterrent, and check the traps. It was raining the first day they came out, so they came out again on the next dry day to get into the crawl space and do more extensive checking. They were very helpful and thorough and were a pleasure to work with from the first phone call on.

BThe Master Trapper Inc
We never did catch it. Perhaps I gave up too soon. The critter wasn't taking the bait, and may just have been a chipmunk. It's still there, but not creating a problem. So, at least it's not a fox, skunk, groundhog, or other real pest.

AAdcocks Trapping Service
All staff were very helpful and responsive. The trapper left door notes every day with the status ("empty, changed location," and so forth). Everything was smooth and very clear. They told me up front there is no guarantee they will catch the animal, but that they have a 90% of so success rate. I was skeptical that our groundhog would fall for this but he did. It seems to me the trapper was very thoughtful in where and how he set the traps and I think that led to the success.

ACapitol Pest
This was a $175 big deal purchase. It was very good and very thorough. He came on time and was very professional. He came out a couple of days after I bought the deal. He gave me some ideas on how to get rid of a groundhog, but that really wasn't his job.  He showed me what to look for and showed me where things would be if I was to have a termite infestation. He told me preventative things and to check for certain things.

AMontgomery Pest Control
We have been using Montgomery Pest Control for many years now and I continue to be amazed by their quality of service, ease of communication and professionalism - not to mention that everyone who works there is super nice. They never try to up sell you on any treatments and are very upfront and honest about what service is best suited for your particular situation. Just today we had their wildlife specialist, Lance out to give us recommendations on a groundhog issue and after assessing the situation he recommended a few DIY tips rather than paying through the nose and he even helped me set up my trap properly. So impressed - I really can't recommend them highly enough!

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.

AEnvironmental Pest Control
Initially communication was good, Megan was very good to call and schedule the technician to come out and set the trap. But after my wife called early (0830) the next day to report a possum had been captured, the person taking the call was very dismissive and told my wife " Well we are scheduled to come out there sometime today, so we'll pick up the trap then" Originally we were told to call if anything was in the trap and they would come and remove it as soon as possible. When the technician finally arrived after 2:00pm, he had no idea that the trap was occupied. So, if said Gound Hog was around then there was no trap available for almost 6 hours. Then the trap with the possum was dragged across my driveway leaving a nice scratch from the metal cage when it would have been very easy to drag the cage across the grass right up to the truck. Just think a little more communication and professionalism could be provided and my wife should not feel that she is being dismissed when spoken to when all we are trying to do is cooperate. It's not like we are asking for "VIP" status but just would like to feel important enough that they appreciate the business. Since word of mouth referrals are what brings in more business. Updated 8/26/2019: All original discrepencies were addressed and Chris came out to investigate previous concerns. Everything was addressed and taken care of and my wife is very happy to have our GroundHog re-located. Thank you.

ASummit Environmental Solutions Inc
I feel like the best way to find out how a business is run is to see how they handle problems. Three years ago, Summit handled our raccoon problems by trapping the animals and then installing a mesh fence around the bottom of our deck; they also placed metal flashing in some areas. The technician who trapped the raccoons in 2012 was extremely courteous and punctual. He communicated with me every day by text message or phone call to see whether animals had been captured. Once they were all cleared out, the team showed up on time on the appointed day and did the construction work around our deck and on our roof. They even put mesh on our crawlspace vents for free to keep out larger mice, and they patched some small holes in our brickwork that were likely letting mice in. We had no more trouble with raccoons or mice that year. This past Sunday, I was chagrined to see a raccoon running alongside my pool and then pop underneath the deck. I called Summit right away. Their weekend answering service was courteous and helpful, and the company contacted me the next day to set up an appointment. The technician who came out on Tuesday could not have been more helpful and respectful. He quickly identified a problem with the initial construction and also found a few more places where our protection could have been stronger. He took photographs of all of the areas that could be improved and promised to start work the next day. Wednesday morning, Summit called me and said that they would trap the new raccoon and repair the defect for free, since we were within their very generous three-year warranty. They also offered to block off some of the areas their technician identified on Tuesday. A few minutes later, the technician showed up with a trap and started the process of removing our raccoons. They will be back next week to fix the decking. I could not be more pleased with Summit?s work and customer service. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone who?s dealing with raccoons, mice, or anything else ? they also successfully removed a groundhog from a burrow it had made in our front yard last year (a problem unrelated to our deck). They?ve always been effective, friendly, and helpful. Strong recommend!
