ABC pest control came out right away to look at a hole dug under a stairway behind my home at no charge so I guess their customer service is good. However, I recommend saving money and spraying your foundation yourself. Cy-Kick is what the pros use and you can mix it and spray yourself so you can be sure that it is the proper concentration...

Get a bottle and a sprayer while you are there and spray the first of every month.

One more thing... If you have an infestation of some sort, especially termites, then I do recommend a professional. However, as far as pest "maintenance" I think this is something a home owner can handle.

Wear eye protection.

I use Bulwark. Their sprays are natural chrysanthemum derivatives, so they aren't as likely to harm pets or children. I live out in the country and have never seen anything inside of my house. After they come out, I see dead crickets etc. out on the patios, so I know that it's doing something. If you do see something in your house, they will come back at no charge. I've signed up for long term service and it works out to around $35/month and I have a large area for them to spray. This is money well spent as far as I'm concerned as I don't like critters coming inside my house!

We use Andy Howard... pay $75 every 3 months plus they come out in between for free if you have a problem with anything. We've been very happy with them - don't have many specifics with them - they treat whatever they need to within the house and 5 feet from the exterior of the house.

I have used J & J Pest Control before and been happy with them. I have heard good things about ABC as well, but they were really expensive when I called. I mean like twice as much.

We use Chem Free in Great Hills. They are a part of ABC. We have small dogs so we were careful about who we chose. Very good luck with them so far other than so spiders coming inside now that there are no bugs outside.
