Business Overview

How We Got Started

I chose to work in this industry because I started in the pest control business quite a few years back, spent most of the time in sales, I found that selling protection for peoples homes and businesses was very satisfying to me. Working for one of the largest and best family owned copanies in the country was a great learning experience and a good starting point for owning my own business. From the start we have been successful increasing sales and our customer base every year. Both of my sons and my wife work for me, excuse me I guess I work for her! We truly are a family owned and operated business. Recently our daughter started handling advertising and socil media and is doing a great job. We have 5 employees besides the family and they all have become part of a great team. You will find our service and the relationship between you and our team to be the best our industry has to offer. I Promise! Clint Lappe .

We started in this industry in 1985.

We describe our business as Family owned and operated

They are punctual and dependable. I can trust them to do the job correctly and work around my family's schedule. I am uncomfortable with their paperless system, but then I'm old school.

Review by in North East, MD
They came out a few weeks ago to help us get rid of ants. The gentleman was very knowledgeable and courteous. He told us that someone would follow up with us to schedule a 7-10 day check. No one has followed up and it has been over 3 weeks now. The ants have mostly died off but are not entirely gone. They would have gotten a perfect review had they followed up with us like they promised.

They were very caring, helpful and responsive. They were informative about what to do and gave me plenty of options. I called them at 8 in the morning and they came right out and handled the situation. I would use them again.

Our long time provider appears to have gone out of business, so we asked Home Advisor for recommendations. We chose Dependable based on the reviews and the proximity. Had our first treatment today, and I was very satisfied with their customer service and focus, and their knowledge. Will be happy to update as we get more experience with them over time.

I needed quick service to get rid of wasps in my house. They were there when needed. They also cost less then the corporate bug/pest control companies and they didn't try to sell me services I didn't want/ need, unlike the corporate companies I contacted.

Review by in Crumpton, MD
I needed help quickly when I found carpenter ants in my roof. They had a service person at my home within 30 minutes to evaluate the problem and had the second service person at my home in two hours to do the spraying of the affected area and then do the entire house. Highly recommend this company.

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.

NOTE: Member service professional information confirmed as described above may change or expire over time; while HomeAdvisor attempts to maintain accurate and up-to-date information, and confirms changes when notified, we cannot guarantee that profile and screening information is accurate. Therefore, we recommend that before working with a service professional you verify that information presented is still current and/or acceptable to you.
