Description Of Work: Exterminated carpet beatles, ants and another kind of gross beatles that infested our flour and cereal.
Member Comments: After calling for an estimate, I got an almost immediate return call from the owner. He identified our problem bugs over the phone and gave an estimated price. He spent a long time on the phone with me, approx 15-20 minutes and was very helpful, providing ways to handle the bugs on my own. I made an appointment and an exterminator showed up, early. He sprayed over the course of the next hour. Since then, we have not had any bugs at all. Literally have not seen one. The carpet beatles are no longer eating wool clothes. So far, I am extremely pleased with the quality of service provided. My only complaint is that someone should have told me that the bedroom would be uninhabitable for a week, even with the windows open. If I had known that, I would have moved my clothes out of there in advance. That is why I gave professionalism a B instead of A. For a week we had to move into the guest bedroom and slept on the futon. Not a huge problem, but the chemicals used are nasty. They made me and the wife a little dizzy and direct contact with the most heavily sprayed areas was not possible.
