    • I have been a customer for many years and have always had exceptional service. David, my technician, has been a huge help. He is very professional and knowledgeable.

    • This company is the first and only company I will call for pest control. David made time to address all of my concerns and was able to make time with very short notice to make sure I was taken care of. He not only addressed the problem, but the root of the problem, and made sure I understood too. Call American Pest Control!

    • Once again I was impressed with the professionalism of the staff. Wendell went above and beyond and helped me find my cat that was missing! Tonya was very helpful with working around my crazy schedule as well as reminding me of my upcoming appointment! I appreciate them both!
