Although the service seems to be adequate I've had many problems with the billing. After canceling the pest control for the house I was still being charged for it and have been struggling to get them to reverse that charge it's been very frustrating.

North Port, FL
Worst service ever. Automatic payment, they take payment but never perform service. AM appointment call late PM and cancel, make another appointment and they just don"t show. Ask for managers call back again without response.

Never see service rep.. Just a bill.
Bradenton, FL
Just starting service - so far, so good.
Bradenton, FL
You have got to be kidding. I forwarded an email asking for the sales person to contact me about my complaint. What I received was another copy of my invoice on the very thing I was complaining about. Subsequently called the office and was put on hold for 20 minutes and then informed by a recorded voice that Xxx on extension XXX was not available and please leave a message. My next action was to write the cheque on the disputed invoice and informing the company to cancel all future service. I wish I could have given you a rating of zero. Good riddance!
Palmetto, FL
Very good service.

Great service.

Haven’t really seen any difference yet, but was very happy with my technician. He was friendly and knowledgeable and took the time to go over what he did with me.
Parrish, FL
Takes the time to hear what’s going on with the lawn and goes over with is recommendation for it.
Bradenton, FL
I have a BEAUTIFUL yard
green grass.
Bradenton, FL
Salesperson John, made promises of how the lawn will come around after a few months by changing the Ph of the soil. Tech that came out and applied the chemicals walked the lawn with my wife and explained how there was no saving the lawn really. If he put down weed killer we would lose most of the lawn. He said he could apply nitrogen and we could have green weeds. The only real way to do anything would be to sod. John said he could get rid of dollar weeds, tech, said they are there to stay. I called John and he said he would call back, he never did.
My wife said the tech was very friendly and took the time to walk through the whole yard on what we have, what is available to him to apply and why it wouldn't work. I'm tending to believe the tech, because a few years ago we had another service out and they told us straight up that they could put chemicals down, but it won't bring grass back especially since our neighbors don't do anything to their lawns and are all weeds and bare spots.
Bradenton, FL
For the first initial visit, I like the service, I’ll have to wait to see how my grass responds to elaborate further. Thank you.
Bradenton, FL
Like service thus far... would like a reply to my email....
Palmetto, FL
Very happy with them and the ways they explain and did the job.
Bradenton, FL
I am OK with the service but my yard still looks like it is dying. I think it is infested with grubs.
Sarasota, FL
I have called 3 times in the past two weeks, leaving messages each time, and have yet to receive a response. We have been a PestBear customer for 3 years. Probably won"t be in another week or so.

We greatly apologize for this. We would be more than happy to assist with your concerns. Could you provide me the name on your account or contact information we could use to reach out to you. Thank you again for reaching out to us.
Bradenton, FL
I have had 6 treatments over 6 months now, from April to August, and I feel my grass is more filled with weeds and looks worse than when we moved into this house.

At this point I am considering two things, continue to tough it out with Pest Bear and hope that things get better somehow, or cancel my service and begin with another company.
North Port, FL
I have repeatedly told you I do not want your service. But you came anyway and then billed me. Never a phone call and do not know how you got through my security gate. I was not home at the time, so I do not believe you were there. Please stop sending me a bill.
Sarasota, FL
The technician always calls before arrival which I appreciate. Everything is good.
Bradenton, FL
I'm not so happy at the the time, I been seen ants in my counters and my wife is cleaning all the time so is not thet we leave food around, also a few bugs get inside the house. I am happy with my grass tho, it's looking better than before. If we can work of the inside of the house for pest I'll be happier.
Bradenton, FL
only first day... so far friendly... let's wait and see results>>>.
Punta Gorda, FL
We cancelled our service.
Bradenton, FL
I'm very pleased with the service thus far. My lawn is looking much better. Thank you.
Bradenton, FL
Yes happy.
North Port, FL
I have called several times because ants are starting to invade. I ended up treating the situation myself because calls were not returned.
Sarasota, FL
My mother Ann Lyter service has been terrible. Still waiting to hear from John.
Bradenton, FL
I discontinued my service.
Bradenton, FL
Treatment was yesterday so we haven't had a chance to notice any changes/improvements yet. I was under the impression from John O. that you'd be able to do something about the weeds within the mulch areas however the man that showed up stated that they could not do anything for that.
Bradenton, FL
Missed a whole month! When asked, we were too busy!
Parrish, FL
Very unhappy with results I still have weeds everywhere and I continue to water and fetalizr doesn't seem to be working. I think I will discontinue service.
