DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY! My Landlord called a few different companies to come out and remove a dead animal from under our patio deck which would require them to crawl under the house about 6-8 ft to reach the porch (straight shot). He called a few different companies and Corkys was the one company that told him they would crawl under the house and they told me the same thing when I made the appointment. Feeling confident that we would be able to open our windows again after Corky"s came, we were very let down when our technician Gilberto showed up and asked where the animal was, and then said they don"t crawl under houses and left, which took about 1 minute from the time he showed up. He didn"t look into the crawl space or even attempt to help in anyway. Our landlord called me and said that he spoke with the company after the technician left our house and they told him that the technician said the animal was to big for him to get out from under our house so they have to come back on Friday which is 2 days from their initial visit because they didn"t have a technician available sooner. He didn"t even LOOK into the crawl space or anywhere near it and he said it smelled like a "rat". So they lied to my landlord and to us. My husband called Corkys customer service line and complained about them lying and having a technician come to our house and do absolutely nothing and they told him they could have someone come on Friday but we would not be compensated in anyway for our troubles and they"re failure to even try to help us when the first technician came. The woman at Corkys customer service line then hung up on my husband because he wouldn"t except their poor customer service and needed a solution much sooner. We needed a solution when the first technician showed up! These people lie and are very misleading and do not care about their customers. Go elsewhere!!
San Bernardino, CA
I've been having problems with ants, probably due to the weather lately and my guy came out to spray for me (Alfred). I explained the situation and he was so pleasant and took extra steps to help take care of my problem. I have never had a pest control company that is so thorough as Corkys. Thank you for your wonderful service and a BIG shout out to Alfred.

We heard a noise in our attic and thought we could have rats(s). Corky's came laid traps within 5 feet of the attic entrance door...something I have done myself. Four visits (weeks) later rats. Their recommendation...for various things totaled over $8,000 fix the problem ....WHAT PROBLEM ??

I paid them the $300 for the service and registered my dissatisfaction.
Watch yourself with these people !!
A tech was in our neighborhood, a senior community. I asked him to put on a mask due to Covid 19, he refused. I called the company and they argued with me and tried to make it my fault. Extremely unprofessional and dangerous! A supervisor was supposed to call me back, never got a call.
Fontana, CA
Just passing along my utmost thanks to Corky's and my technician Alfred Guerrero for continued excellent service. I really appreciate your exceptional service and faithfulness in your business. You've exceeded my expectations. Thanks again!

Bad business. Called to cancel apt since the their quote so high comparing with one I used. Second they never email confirm apt and get escrow information.
It take me nearly 20 minutes on hold for calling and nobody pick up. ...

Recently purchased a new home and contacted Corky's for service. We were able to get an appointment set quickly for both interior and exterior. Alfred G. (CP 22) was our service provider. He called before he arrived (per our request) and showed up at the beginning of the appointment window. He walked through the property and advised me what product/services he was going to perform. He was very friendly, cheerful and professional. He completed the service in less then an hour. Would definitely use the service again and request Alfred to be our tech.
THEY DON'T KEEP THEIR WORD. Scheduled pest control for 10am-2pm. So I took a half day off work. At 1:58pm nobody had showed up so I contacted them and was told sorry there was a scheduling issue and so it was set for 3-5pm. They would rush the guy over at 3pm. Ok great I said, so I told my boss I'd be taking the full day off. And then nobody ever showed up. Now I'm left with a ton of ants and spiders all over, and 1 less vacation day. DONT TRUST THEM.

Tech didn't fill my bait stations in December but paperwork showed he placed 40 new baits in a total of 10 stations. I popped them open and there were some with no baits, partial, and all were old. I called and they said there would be no charge. Then a few weeks later they charged my credit card. I am trying to get my money back for their techs dishonesty but no one will return my phone calls or emails.
Check your bait boxes everyone as you may be getting ripped off also.

Chris was a delight to work with. He was easy to talk to and helped us make the best choice for us. My husband has COPD and we chose the Green Heat technique, which was easiest for us as we didn't have to pack up and leave the house. I would recommend Chris and Corky's to anyone who asked.
Santee, CA
Everything was excellent except I gave the check to Chris and I guess Chris didn't get it at the office early enough that they called me and said I didn't pay other than that everything else was great.
San Marcos, CA
The inspection was preformed and some minor infestation was found.(2 rafter tails and one area on a deck rail,) As this was a inspection for a VA Refinance repair will have to be made. I felt that the cost to make the repairs was very high. Because they must be made I felt that I was taken advantage of the situation.
San Diego, CA
Tech arrived late....

Didn't locate termites as per different/sellers company.

Didn't get the report for more than 10 days after inspection- even though is escrow related and time sensitive.
Calimesa, CA

Anthony went over and beyond. I missed my appointment as i was not home(a special request for additional visit) he turned around and came back to do the job after I returned and called him.
