BumbleBee Removal

We asked Abell Pest Control to remove our bumblebee infestation in our garage. The guy sprayed the area, the bumblebees left about 30 minutes later they staggeringly came back one by one. Eventually, we sprayed them ourselves. We will NEVER ask Abell ever again. Worst $150 we ever spent.

Spray for sow bugs

I have had Abell pest control out 2 years in a row to our home to spray for sow bugs. It seems that come spring, these little critters come scurrying into my basement. Although these bugs are harmless, Abell pest control always take my discomfort seriously and comes out within a day or two to spray.

They are also very conscious of our family's health and both times recomended that I spend the night away from home with our children. First time I was pregnant, second time my son was only a few months.

They are clean, professional and they guarantee their work. Highly recommend them although, I hope to never see them again ;)

centipede spray

We called Abell Pest Control to come to our home to spray for centipedes. We were asked to leave the house for at least 3-4 hours to avoid any fumes. At first, I was concerned because I have a little one at home, but they assured us that by leaving the house it would be fine. In order to prevent any centipedes from entering the house, they needed to spray the basement and some of the exterior. They will be returning about 4x a year.

problem with yellow sac spiders & carpenter ants.

I hired Abell Pest Control soon after I moved into my present home. The house had been empty for 5 months & I had a bug problem (mice had also been treated for by previous owners by Abell).
I had a 1st rate technician in Lincoln. A 2nd visit was scheduled & Ken did an extra treatment. I'm now free of ants, mice & above all - car[penter ants.
This is in London On & having read the review posted here, I'm surprised to find that the only London one was poor. I believe that only dissatisfied people tend to write reviews. I think that the satisfied ones need to come forward more often. I've heard nothing but good things about Abell from people I know.

What could this company do to improve their services?
I think they could perhaps show their willingness to return if they made an automatic appointment to come back & check at a specific time instead of having the customer contact them.
Any advice to offer fellow homeowners facing a similar project?
Yes Call Abell!

Annual spraying for centipedes

I struggled with this rating. I'd give a full 10 on results, but lower on the admin. end.
We moved into a 150+ year old home 7 years ago, and quickly discovered we weren't living here alone. We had huge (4"-5") centipedes EVERYWHERE!
The tub was crawling with them every morning. I'd go to grab my robe off the hook on the back on the door in the morning, and find one or two on it. We were carrying a big chair up the stairs and one crawled out from the cushion inches from my face! UGH!!!
Not a day went by without seeing them. It was horrible, and I developed a phobia of them.
We had Abell come in and spray, and it did take about 6 months before I was not seeing ANY at all. (The technician we first dealt with was Dan, and I came to refer to him as "Dan, my super-hero"!)
We pay $250 a year for a spring and fall visit, which is well worth it to keep my sanity. My only issue is that I have mailed in my annual payment, and realized we only got one visit, or no one has called to come and we have to call. I think if they take your money up front, they ought to have a better system in place to ensure you get served.
BUT . . . the result is wonderful! We are completely centipede-free, and going from what we had to this . . . well, well worth the cost!

Remove my wasps nest by Abell Pest Control

Yesterday (March/4/2012) I've email to Abell Pest Control for removing the wasps nest nearby my skylight window and I was replied by email within 2 hours even on holiday! We have arranged all just with 3 emails and Mr. Kevin Higgins (Route manage) from Abell appeared in front of me early in next day to clean all up, very quickly and friendly. Price is reasonable and prsented in detail, service was quite well before all job started from this company.

Abell staffs, Thank all of you there again.

home service contract

Hired Abell from LONDON for 3 visits. One in May, June and Sept. First appointment was cancelled due to rain(because the poison would be washed away), only to come 2 weeks later in rain any way. Then thats the last i saw of them. When a refund was requested because they never came back, BRUCE the manager assured me i would be refunded. To add injury to insult, 3 months later the refund was never received and BRUCE ignors my calls. Finally got BRUCE on the phone today dec 12, 2011 and he laughed at me.

extermination

Last month, we identified ants aggregating at a location inside my basement. I immediately contacted abell since its the only pest control company off the top of my head. They came promptly and provided very good services. Since then, I have never seen an ant in my house again!
