Bed Bugs

I returned home from vacation to discover that I had brought bed bugs home with me! I immediately called Advantage Pest Control to enquire about their services. The gentlemen I spoke with was very informative and put me at ease when I learned I could have a technician at my home promptly (the next day) to remove the problem. They showed up within the 3 hour window they gave me and did the service fairly quickly. I was happy to discover my problem was fixed! And although they offered me a second service to come back for free, I didn't even need it! Needless to say, bed bugs are gone and I was very happy with the overall experience from Advantage Pest Control. I would definetly recommend their service to a friend!

bed bug removal

I've had bed bugs for 5 months, they are a miserable creature to live with, and nearly impossible to kill. I've had 5 services from Advantage (one of which they gave me for free) from 3 of their guys. John was friendly. Unfortunately I'm still infested, and have decided to go in a different direction.

Pest Control issue

I had never dealt with a wasp problem previously so I decided to ask a friend and he told me he had used Advantage Pest control for a similar problem.
I asked for their contact info and called immediately.
I found them to be professional, affordable, and effective.
I would definitely use their services again.

Thank you Hugo, we are always glad to hear that we have solved a customer's pest problem. Wasps can be a very stressful pest to have and we strive to put an end to that stress for our customer.

Bedbugs

I was terrified and stressed out about these bites on my body…it turned out to be bed bugs. Paolo was the service manager that took my call and he was above and beyond helpful. He was more than happy to help me out, he spoke with me on the phone and calmed me down with reassurance that this problem would be solved. He was very kind and friendly to both myself and my family. I would have gone crazy with fear and anxiety had it not been for his help…he also took calls from me repeatedly and listened to my panic and continued to tell me the facts and reassured me that this could be taken cared of. The technician that came out to my home was extremely wonderful as well. He too, was an exceptional person who really really put much effort into this problem. He was very helpful and thorough. He reassured me and gave me the information I needed when he was all finished up with the service. Thank you for your services.

I remember this call and how upset you were. Part of our job is to make the customer comfortable in a very uncomfortable time. The most powerful thing that you as a customer have is knowledge and confidence is the people you have to handle your problem. We were very happy to be those people for you. I am glad that your experience with our technician was so positive. We train our technicians with the highest level of customer service skills and pest management techniques. Thank you for the oppurtunity to be of service.

Bedbugs Removal

True professional service. I was so mortified when I discovered I had bedbugs. Very upset and distraught I called Paolo who assured me that with the proper treatment and dilagence he could help me get rid of my problem. He talked to me about exactly what the treatment would be and how I could help the process along. He advised me to talk to other companies but it was Paolo who made me feel the most comfortable and that I could understand this problem. The technician that came out was friendly and efficient. The promt service (they came out the next day) and the quality of service were amazing. Although I hope to never need pest control again, if I do I will use this company.

Carpenter Ants

I was killing about 20 ants per day for a whole week in the winter time, which means they were living in our house. I emailed 5 different companies and got a response within hours from Paul. The price is about $100 more compared to others however, they are the only ones that guarantees a 1 year warranty, others only guaranteed 6 or 7 months. Plus, Advantage Pest Control did the whole house not just the problem area. The exterminator was a very friendly guy with 18 years of experience, he also educated us on what to do to prevent this from happening again. After they sprayed the whole house, that same day I counted 75 dead ants on our window ledge, who knows how many more dead ones were inside the window. The company came back in the fall to spray the exterior of the house at not extra charge. This company specializes in carpenter ants so, I wanted to deal with the best. I would highly recommend this company. Their website is www.pestservices.ca

Cockroach extermination

We contacted this company for cockroach extermination. The first time they came 2 hours late. He applied a cockroach bait gel around the house, mostly in the kitchen. They claim that their product is safe for children and pets because they put it in places where it is not accessible. However, he was very careless when applying the gel as there were many places where the gel was easily accessible by a child, such as on the outside of kitchen cabinets. I also found a few places where the gel had dropped off onto the floor when he was walking around the house. Two months later we still had cockroaches so they came for a return visit. Again, the gel was placed in places where it was too accessible - I even found my dog licking it off the cabinets. I don't know yet if the second application will get rid of the cockroaches but if you have children or pets you should be very wary about using this company. Also, I have since found out that you can buy the same product that they use (Maxforce gel in a syringe) online and apply it yourself for much less cost.

Company Response

Our response to this customer's comment is as follows: a.)We are in the service industry as such we have to service the customers at their homes. Like other companies in the industry, we always give our customers a 2-4 hour window for our arrival time, reasons being traffic problems, the customer at the previous location requesting more services than originally booked with us, etc. If an appointment is booked for between 1:00 pm and 4:00 pm, it means that our technician may arrive anytime between 1:00 pm and 4:00 pm. Arriving at 3:00 pm, for example, is within our time-frame and would not be considered being late. b.) As to the usage of Maxforce bait gel, there is a saleable Maxforce to the public. However, the concentration of the over-the-counter one is much lower than what we as licensed exterminators use. c.)The gel treatment is made in cracks and crevices mostly in kitchen and bathroom cupboards. In the event that a technician is generous with the application, it usually means that the technician observes a higher-than-usual infestation of roaches, which is probably the reason why we later had a no-charge repeat visit to this customer under our guarantee.

Carpenter Ants

We found those big black ants (some with wings) in our house last May. We called a few pest control companies trying to get rid of them. We finally hired Advantage Pest Control because we found them to be the most accommadating. They took their time to explain the life style and procedure to get rid of the problem -which in our case was carpenter ants. The service was prompt + professional and we are pleased to say we no longer have carpenter ants. Thanks.

Pest Problem

We had a problem with Wasps up at the edge of the roof, which somehow were making their way into one of the bedrooms. We called them and they came the next day, but didn't bring a high enough ladder so had to come back the next morning. The gentleman sprayed the hole where the wasps were and he also sprayed inside the bedroom around the window, ceiling and air vent. It worked, about an hour or so later, we counted about 20 wasps which were dead, or nearly dead, so it was easy to just flush them away. We haven't seen any more wasps. I would recommend this company, we are satisfied with the service we received.
