On time, efficient, and so effective. I highly recommend Modern Pest Service. They completely eliminated a massive infestation of carpenter ants and it was no easy task. Great!

Thank you, Tech's.
Bedford, MA
Technician was great. However, I had asked the initial contact person to send someone with a ladder, since the ant infestation was discovered when repairing a second-floor window. I specifically mentioned that it would have to be done from a ladder. The technician did the best he could, but I am concerned that the job was not done properly from inside the house.

Wellesley Hills, MA
Jonathan is the best! He is always on time, very focused and helpful.
Chestnut Hill, MA
Jonathan did just what we wanted in a short amount of time. It should be mentioned that he was supposed to arrive between 10 and 12, but was delayed until after 1. We were notified and it was okay this time, but may not be next time. Please schedule more realistically.
Newton Center, MA
Jonathan is an incredible service tech. Whatever pest-control company employs him will keep our business.
For now, that's Modern Pest, and we will continue to recommend your services to friends and neighbors.

Kelvin was great and really did a thorough job inspecting our basement and house! we were super happy with the job he did! Thank you!

Kelvin was great. He explained everything he was going to do, answered my questions and worked efficiently. It was a very good experience overall.

I rated the homecare experience a five but it will ultimately depend on whether it takes care of the problem.

You guys are usually very good, but this time the man said we were missing a trap outside and we were not so it needs to be filled. There is a trap next to bulkhead and left side if house if you are facing house. Someone from your company suppose to be coming this Friday September 1st 8:00AM I would prefer someone different that knows where the traps are inside the basement and outside home. Thank you.

Amesbury, MA
Didn't appreciate him spraying chemical over my clothes hanging outside on a clothesline. Had it been communicated that he needed to spray there, I would've moved the clothing promptly. Most technicians would communicate with us prior to leaving but this technician didn't say anything - hung his report on the door and left.
