Lonsdale, MN
Made a complete mess both inside and outside with the foam and attempting to caulk. Put a few mouse bait traps out and then just threw a bunch between my floors on the Sheetrock (I have floor trusses) and called it good. They did not take care of the rodent problems at all. Would not recommend.

Jan is very knowledgeable and doesn’t try to sell me services I done need. He gives me a “ heads up” when he is on his way, which is appreciated as I have dogs. He is quiet and efficient when he works.

GreT job came at a time it worked out for me.
Northfield, MN
You were at my home for 3 minutes. Your “process” has done nothing. We were told we could call if we needed more assistance. When we called we were accused of not being good home owners. We won’t be using you or recommending you.
Minneapolis, MN
Well, you really have not solved my problem, which is two squirrels running about the inside of my house. But I have not seen any sign of them for two days so maybe they departed. You were, however, timely in responding to my call for while I am grateful.

We recently had a mice problem in our attic. We thought it was squirrels but Shawn diagnosed it as mice. His associate Dalton confirmed that it is mice and fixed the problem. These guys are reasonable and very competent.

Bait boxes were plastic. My do found them and chewed them open eating the poison. (Should’ve been metal boxes)
Spray for Asian beetles doesn’t seem to be working as well as I anticipated.
Lonsdale, MN
Dalton was so efficient and nice. Even took the baby turtle I found to the lake.
Marshall, MN
I waited 6 months through the summer season to say that we have not a sound or sighting of bats since your agent bat proofed our house. The agent was courteous, fast and hard working, and the cost was reasonable for the service. Thank you.

Faribault, MN
Talked with Francis Pest Control about a problem we had with bats. He was very confident and reassuring that he could fix the problem. He guaranteed his work. So far after 3 weeks there are no bats. He reassured us if we get anymore he would come back to see what he could do.
He also came right out to take care of a big wasp nest at my daughters place. He came over and sprayed around the house, windows and doors with his magical juice. Wasps are all gone. He is a go to guyj.

Timely,courteous, professional, and knowledgeable! Very pleased with the service provided.
When I called to discuss my wasp problem I had described how they were getting into the house. And the reason I didn't try to treat the nest myself from the outside is from this information on their website..
"Do not attempt to try to kill any you may see outside the wall. This will only result in the remaining wasps moving farther into the wall..."
Unfortunately, after their treatment, this is exactly that happened. Now I know unexpected things can happen with Mother Nature so that"s not what upset me. I don't judge a companies by unexpected situations, how they respond to them is what's important, and that's where they failed. They came and sprayed at 11am on Thursday, by the time I got home at 6pm there were HUNDREDS of wasps in the house (unprecedented so clearly a result of the treatment). I took care of those hoping in was a one time deal. The next day there was more than a hundred more. At 8:20am on Friday I sent an email explaining the issue, then at 3:41pm I called the service tech and left a message, and at 3:45pm I called the office and left another message. They didn't get back to me until 11:27am on Sunday, at which time I was only offered excuses as to how it's not their fault. At the end of the day I had to pay for a service even though I was the one who extracted hundreds of live wasps from my home, and they were perfectly ok with this.

PS I did call them before leaving this review to politely express my feelings on the issue and give them another chance. If they had given me even a slight hint of sympathy I wouldn't have wrote this. But they made it clear their only goal was to deflect all accountability so here we are.

PPS The service tech did call back in a timely manner to let me know I needed to call the office to get him on the schedule. It's the office that dropped the ball.
