Review by in Oceanside, CA
A service person came out at the appointed time, did the removal of 2 birds' nests, & sprayed in the 2 areas outside.  A mess was left in these areas which I cleaned up & I initially didn't receive a contract guarantee for their outside work. So ...after being contacted by this company's owner to discuss my initial negative report & both parties realizing there was a miscommunication between us, I therefore have left this new review. I received a $40 refund (4 having 2 clean) and he gave me a 40 day guarantee on the work done (I do feel a 40 day guarantee isn't adequate, though). Also, at this time, I think that my property is still void of bird mites outside in those 2 areas and appreciate the refund for cleaning. Thank you.
Response by Hurst Exterminators: I have to admit this review really caught me off guard. If you go through my reviews on any platform you can easily see that I'm all about customer service and fairness. I wasn't called about a problem and didn't know about it until this review. I immediately contacted the customer and gave her a refund. I don't think this review was very accurate but I gave her a refund just in case she really felt this way to avoid even a chance of her feeling ripped off.

Review by in Vista, CA
I had a few bees flying around my family room in the afternoon. Actually, I thought they were wasps. Scooted two out the door and swatted two more. The next morning I woke up to more! The Hurst Exterminators were the only ones I called who understood my concern. Mike was able to have Steven, who was in the area, stop by within 30 min. Steven was friendly and calming, yet very professional. He checked the entire house and attic, killed one remaining bee in the ceiling fan and determined there was no indication of a nest. He even showed me the exterior vent the bees most likely accessed to get inside. To say the least, I was relieved! When I asked whether he accepted checks, he said there would be no charge for the inspection. this day & age?! I would highly recommend Hurst Exterminators - that's the reason for my 5 star review.

Excellent service. Mike and Steven were AWESOME! Same day service wow! You don't get this type of service from most companies. Will hire them again for sure. The bees are gone and were so amazed by the process. Great pictures too! Mike went above and beyond. God bless them for their great big hearts.

Always have received good work from Home Advisors. .Having trouble with ants. Received a call from Mike Amato of Hurst Exterminators. Not only gave me a great quote compared to others that called BUT... said could be at my home within 2 hours. Mike was early and was very thorough, knowledgeable and quick. Gave us a 40 day guarantee and said ants should be gone within 24 hours. Said If not he would be back next day. They were gone!!!! I feel very comfortable in the job and in the knowledge I have 40 days guarantee!! Highly recommended Hurst. Ask for Mike Amato!

Mike destroyed the mites! He came the next day, explained everything to us, and he has a 60 day guarantee. We couldn't have asked for more.

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.
