Ijamsville, MD
We have been using Arterix since we moved to MD, 2 years ago. We first called them for carpenter bees, but decided to continue yearly pest control with them. We have been very happy with the service. Pests, especially mosquitos, are practically nonexistent in our outdoor spaces, and the personal care and communication provided by Art (the owner) has exceeded expectations. We would highly recommend Arterix to anyone.
Rockville, MD
We had been using Orkin the past three years and had been growing more dissatisfied with their service. Each bimonthly visit amounted to a 3 -5 min walk through and difficulty scheduling the visits. Art worked around our schedule, spent a lot of time looking and treating areas (that Orkin never looked at with any visit) and the treatments he did render showed a better knowledge of pests then we had been exposed to before. I know others who have used his service and have raved about the quality and thoroughness he provided.
Rockville, MD
Customer for two years for termite prevention and general pest control services. Art does a very thorough job.
Chevy Chase, MD
Beekeepers have serviced my home for 3 or years. Good service but those bees just keep coming back!
Elkridge, MD
Excellent service and totally professional company. I would highly recommend.
Derwood, MD
Unfortunately my particular pest problem did not fall into their wheelhouse, I had raccoons and they deal with mice - I understand raccoon removal requires a special license. Otherwise, they were prompt, friendly, did explore, and didn't charge me for the visit once they saw they could not perform this specific task. Jeramiah, was friendly, wore booties over his boots, and respectful of my home, and even took photos (which I could send to Master Trapper).
Silver Spring, MD
Came the next day, identified the problem quickly and solved it.
Gaithersburg, MD
I have problems with mice in our facility, and after being unable to solve the problem ourselves, we called Arterix Pest Control. The owner Ararat came out quickly and on time, and called ahead to let me know he was on the way. He was very thorough inspecting our gas station/garage/c-store inside and out, showing entry points the mice use to come inside our and explained how to seal it off. I talked with several companies before choosing this one, and so glad I chose them. The most knowledgeable, accommodating and simply great to work with. Did not try to oversell and pricing is great. I have service contract with them now. Highly recommend.
Gaithersburg, MD
Because I am moving I needed to have my house tested for termites. Art from Arterix was efficient and we were able to get signed off on termites right away. We got the carpenter bee issue taken care of in a week.

I used the mice control service from Arterix and was impressed by the time accommodation from Art. I called on a Thursday and he was able to come the next day. Art recommended to put bait and was thorough with the treatment.

We have been using their service for a few years now and are completely happy with their service.
Vienna, VA
I have used Arterix for general pest control, bed bug monitoring, and termite treatment and prevention. I like that they thoroughly explain the process and are able to respond quickly when an issue arises. Art is really great.
Boyds, MD
We initially called for a yellow jacket problem but were so impressed by Art and his team that we signed up for a comprehensive plan which has worked out well. Service is top notch and we feel we are in good hands with Art.
Washington, DC
We've been using Arterix Pest Control/The Beekeepers for a few years. They have a very personalized level of service. It's common to be able to talk to the owner directly. We use them for their stinging insects on-call, pest control, and mosquito services. Very trustworthy, capable, organized, professional, and friendly. Highly recommend them.
Glenwood, MD
I have used this service for 2 years. The service consists of insect control though outdoor praying, clearing away stinging insects and mouse control.
Marshall, VA
I've been contracting with The Beekeepers for the past 2 years. Very pleased with their service and professionalism. As I have an irrational fear of flying stinging 'bugs', this service has been huge for my quality of life and ability to enjoy my outdoor space.
Alexandria, VA
They are very professional and they come when needed.
Fairfax Station, VA
First time using this service. Job completed. Very responsive and job well done.
Washington, DC
I contacted Arterix to handle an issue I had with carpenter bees. I was able to get an appointment right away. The company seems extremely professional and focused on client service from the person who answered the phone to the representative who came to my home. They did a wonderful job and did not try to sell me anything I didn't need. I would highly recommend Arterix Pest Control.
Lanham, MD
First time user to have a very large hornet nest removed. Representative (John) who took my call to schedule the appointment was great. Technician (Joe) was both pleasant and professional. The type of hornet was identified and the nest removal procedure was explained. Job was done quickly and completely. Will use again if other pest issues arise.
Washington, DC
This is the first time I have had a bee problem that required a professional, as it was in a small apartment building. Arterix Pest Control was the second company I dealt with. When I called Arterix, I was able to speak with Art on the phone to describe what was going on. And while I was unable to e-mail or tweet photos, Art was fairly certain of the type of bees (yellow jackets) based on everything described. He explained what the treatments would entail and the warranty. Most importantly, he was able to get to us right away, which I really appreciated given the inconvenience to the tenant. He called me to schedule the second treatment within his stated timeframe (I did not have to call him). Everything turned out just as described. He also told me what and when to make preventive repairs.

Art is not only a consummate professional, but is also very easy to talk to. He is punctual and very considerate of the time of others. I will be using Arterix Pest Control/The Beekeepers for all future pest control needs.

Silver Spring, MD
I found The Beekeepers through Yelp and have been very satisfied. There has been great communication from the start (getting a callback within an hour of sending an inquiry, at 9pm!). My technician was very knowledgeable and kind and instilled a lot of confidence in his abilities.
Owings Mills, MD
Very impressed with the techs knowledge and service provided. Was happy I had yellow jackets and not honey bees which the tech immediately identified. I felt more comfortable with Arterix handling my problem rather than a generic pest company.
Great Falls, VA
Had a hornet's nest removed. It was completed efficiently, and to my satisfaction.
Clifton, VA
I have been using Arterix for a over a year now . Great professional staff , honest and thorough . I have recommended Arterix to several of my neighbor's and all have been very satisfied !!! Keep up the great work !!!
Laurel, MD
I had a nasty yellow jacket beehive that I had been trying to get rid of for weeks. Joe did a great job getting rid of the hive. He was on time and super courteous.
Lutherville Timonium, MD
Came across Art by chance when we had an emergency, and his work was so terrific that we canceled the annual contract with our "big biz" exterminator company -- who always sent a different person unfamiliar with our property and who could never answer any question or propose a solution to a particular problem (well, with the exception of what their contract didn't cover!). Art must stay up at night reading entomology books; he knows everything, and, should he not, he will research it and get back to you with a proposed solution. He is on time, every time, and meticulous in his work, courteous in his manner, and very professional. Our house abuts a heavily wooded area, so we see all kinds of strange stuff -- and Art is able to handle it all. He is one of the best contractors -- in any area -- with whom we've ever dealt.
Laurel, MD
We had purchased a new home a few weeks ago and were surprised to find a hornet's nest the size of a basketball when we arrived for the walk-through before settlement. I submitted a request online at Arterix's website and received a call from Art very promptly. He explained the treatment and pricing, and they came out and handled it that same day. They even took care of a paper wasp nest above our front door that we didn't even know about! It was such a relief to come home and not be attacked by bees. Terrific service; will absolutely call them for any future needs. Thank you!
Alexandria, VA
Arterix responded to my problem immediately and fixed it. I emphasize this because the two other pest control companies I called, which were highly recommended, never called me back. I'll use Arterix from now on.
Kensington, MD
I called for help with a hornets nest and got service first thing the next morning. The operation was efficient, the technician knowledgeable and courteous and he returned the next day to confirm the hive was out of business.
Germantown, MD
I used Arterix Pest Control/The Beekeepers for the first time today. Art Stepanyan was at my home within hours to remove a large nest of bald-faced hornets from a bedroom window.
Laurel, MD
I appreciated the courtesy Joe extended to keep the inside of my house clean during extermination.
Fairfax, VA
We have just started using the Arterix, but so far we are highly satisfied with the service and results. highly recommend.
We had carpenter bees that were drilling holes into window frames and other wood on our house. The Beekeepers came out and, per their recommendation, twice treated the affected areas. I thought I was going to have to have them back because of a few pesky returning bees, but sure enough they were all gone within a few weeks. I definitely would recommend this group. They were very nice, thorough and careful and answered all my questions. I would use them again.
