Sam Soto, the owner, took the time to explain what he was doing to eradicate the problem, told us what to expect in the next few days, and asked us to schedule a repeat visit within five days. He went up into our attic twice to make sure there were no bees within the house. A set price was given for this service, and we feel the value was excellent. He uses all natural products whenever possible.

Sam knew immediately how to correct my wasp problem and did so with natural chemicals. He came back as he said he would to make sure that his service was effective. I would recommend First Rate Pest to everyone.

First Rate was great. They came the same day I spoke with them and handled my issues imediately. The technician was courteous and a man of his word. He said he would call a couple of days later and he did. I would definitley recommend them.

Review by in New York, NY
Sam was extremely responsive and called me only minutes after I submitted my request to ServiceMagic - my first request - and made the process seem really magical. He offered his services. However, we had no specimens to submit and thus told him we would call when we had one. Several days later we caught one of the tiny creatures and put it in plastic bags and left it with our doorman. For $54.19 he picked up the specimen and gave me the answer that afternoon: carpet beetles. He offered to eradicate them. However, since we do not want to spray with any poison, we are not hiring him to do that. They seem to be coming into view less frequently - I think, and he agreed that it was probably not our carpets - all of the tiny creatures were in our kitchen and dining room, one in bathroom may have come in on freshly laundered towels from kitchen - but related to huge construction in apartments on our floor. What we need and still did not get is some way to eradicate these beetles without use of poisonous pesticides. They come occasionally only and I plan to call him again if I see another one.

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.
