    When I went to the Angi website and asked for pest/termite control operators in my area, I received two recomendations of Angi-certified contractors, one of whom was The Termite Assassin (TTA). Both contacted me shortly after my inquiry, I asked both for an inspection and proposal, and both quickly came to my house and gave me a proposal. Both of the contractors' representatives were experienced and knowledgeable, answered my questions, and proposed similar plans to treat the subterranean termites that were active in my house. I chose TTA/Richard Near for two reasons. One, TTA's treatment price was materially lower than the other contractor. Two, Richard Near, TTA's owner --who has a decade of experience as a Licensed Applicator--informed me that he himself would be treating my home. Knowing who would actually be the person that would show up to do the treatment gave me an added level of confidence in doing business with Richard/TTA, and it turned out that my confidence was well placed. Richard did a great job when he treated my home. And, although it was unexpected, he also gave me a veterans' discount, which was much appreciated. I couldn't be happier about the job. :-)

    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.
