My wife was extremely disturbed with the inspector's unusual and unnecessary questions such as:
Where are you from,
How long you have been here,
Any unusual things happened in this house, etc.

Other than this he had done a good job.

He came much earlier than the scheduled time, around 8:30 am and without advance calling.

Next time, please send an older inspector.
As you know, we are very happy with your service.
Thank you.

Not too effective on pest control and minimizes effort towards a task.
Arlington, VA
Jorge was very pleasant in reviewing the property for termites or any sign of termite damage.

I applied a hardware store treatment to deal with what he thought was acrobat ants. Not sure that these were present. It is not termites. It is almost two weeks since the first application. Jorge said to call back if not cured in two weeks. Will wait a few more days.

Capitol Pest representatives have always been very thorough in addressing our pest (mosquito, mice, ants) problems and their solutions have always worked. They come on time and work efficiently. They even like our dog.

I have had other pest control services in the past but they are heads above the rest! Just this summer I have needed to call them about wasps and ants and within days they were able to resolve my problems no charge! This is a great company with a caring and friendly staff!

Beginning device was great.
I still have mice.
I tried to call this evening and your voicemail is full.
Continuous service is to be determined.

We wanted an annual search of our home for active termite damage. The inspector examined our house quite thoroughly and found no such activity. He noted a rotting tree stump at a side of the house and said it could invite an infestation. Not having had a termite issue for close to 20 years and having had the stump for ten, I declined to accept his offer of a $585 plan to prevent one. I found the sales pitch a little off-putting since I was paying only for the annual tour of the house. Again, my sole objective was the inspection, not a sales call, particularly without evidence of termite activity. This seemed quite a departure from Capitol Pest's previous inspection visits, and I'd rather it not be repeated.

Capitol Pest Control does a very good job. They have cut off all mice problems in the house and they have controlled the ant problem mostly. We still get a few which we try to control with ant traps arranged around the base boards in and around the kitchen. The ant problem seems to have stopped so we have removed the traps.

They came yesterday on time to apply a number of products around the base of the house foundation to deter varmits and insects from entering our house. They did this with ease and without interruption of what we were doing inside our home. Good job!

The technicians at Capitol Pest are true professionals. They have always arrived within the promised window, take a proactive approach to pest control, and come back if anything pops up. Great service.

When I signed up for Capitol Pest, I was happy with customer service -- the salesperson and the young men who came to do the first treatment. Then two young guys came to install the treatment outside my house and one small box inside my house that one guy (the trainer) said he'll send another person to check it out for termites. I trusted that these guys would do their jobs. Then, days later, I noticed that the green things were not really installed in the ground. They were left out in the open. I notified my salesperson who said he would send someone first thing in the morning. But that didn't happen until two days later. The box the guy installed in my house is still here. Not sure what I'm supposed to do with it. They've come twice to do treatment, and left those door knob cards. But I can't really tell what is done. When I first complained, the woman on the phone said the manager will call me in an hour. It's been months. Just disappointed. I expected more from this company. But I'm stuck with it until my contract ends.

Pierre and Jorge were very professional and explained the work they would be doing very well. They located the problems--mice, moths. I feel that my contract with Capitol Pest Control is very worthwhile. I also use the company for termite inspection for my home and rental property. I have been with this company for many many years. I am pleased with my service.

Capitol Pest and William have done an excellent job. William has been consistently on-time, polite and thorough. They did a very nice job identifying and closing up potential entry for rodents and have helped us rule out the fear of rodents remaining in our house.
Bowie, MD
I am a new customer and so far, so good. At this point, there are no complaints. A more accurate review would probably be given by customers who have used your service for a while. Thank you.

Everything went smoothly.
Kensington, MD
The Capitol Pest technician arrived on time, having called me when he was 30 minutes from our home. He got right to work, checked the basement carefully then went on to the outside foundation of our home. I appreciated his thoroughness. He was knowledgeable and efficient.
Montgomery Village, MD
So far we are very happy, it's a new situation so it's still ongoing but we really really like Cristina, the technician who has been taking care of us.
Washington, DC
Jorge was punctual, efficient, and such a pleasant young man with excellent social and professional skills.
Thank you!

Very annoying pre-recorded calls that are not coordinated with my schedule. I just had my inspection and now two days in a row I get recorded calls saying they are coming between 9 or 8 and 5. I have already made clear that I would never do that. I will plan my visits individually. I am not available to put a whole day aside for that kind of schedule. This structure is really a problem. Also those calls say I should be the one to call if I want to change the "appointment" that I never had in the first place. I don't know why you expect people to have time for this. The techs who have been here do a good job.

I have received excellent service through the years.
