    5.0 Alvarado, TX

    James was very knowledgeable and pleasant. He was thorough and his guarantee was great. I will be using his service on a quarterly basis. Very satisfied. A+++

    5.0 Jeremy R. Venus, TX

    I have been using James services for almost a year now. He is very knowledgeable about pest control and very forth coming in the information he provides. We have small children in the house and not having insects is very important to us. We haven't had one bug issue since using his services, which is a HUGE statement considering all the rain we had this year. I would highly recommend him for any of your pest control needs.

    5.0 David R. Venus, TX

    James sprayed the house inside and out. Haven't seen any bugs except dead ones. Six months later still killing bugs. I have dogs so I was concerned with the chemicals bothering my dogs. James assured me dogs would be fine. Thanks James for killing all the spiders! I will be using drop shot quarterly to make sure bugs and spiders don't return. James also killed two fire ant mounds and with all the rain I should've seen more mounds by now. I have finally found someone who gets rid of fire ants instead of just moving them around my yard. Very good service. I highly recommend!

    5.0 Sheila H.

    I'm just very comfortable with the gentleman, James Barnett. He is very professional, he is interested in seeing the through to the finish and has been following up to ensure great service. He followed up fast, and we have had a great experience. He also has worked with my schedule.

    1.0 Waxahachie, TX

    Man charged $45 just to come to home. Brought mouse traps foam things we could have bought ourselves and charged us $21more. Suggested that we fill holes with foam. We don't know if the rodent problem is solved. Our dog is still sniffing around the site where we think there are rodent(s).

    Response from Company:

    Quoted over the phone I charge $85/hour to inspect and for exclusion work, a rodent bait station is recommended at $45 each. Advised homeowner that it would take some time to solve rodent problem. It was recommended that I come back in one month to check rodent activity, a trip charge would apply. Homeowner said "I will call you". He has not contacted me about his problem since initial service. Invoice clearly shows one quarter hour for inspecting at a charge of $21.25 and $45 for rodent bait station plus tax. Homeowner chose to do exclusion work himself. Left mousetraps, glue boards, steel wool and one can of foam was at no charge.

    5.0 Richard B.

    I think anybody would as satisfied as we were with his work.
