Service Provider Response

We sincerely apologize to Mr. [Member Name Removed] for not responding to his inquiry. It was not intentional. We didn't receive a notification that we had a message. The current pandemic has had a taxing toll on networks and we have been experiencing issues with emails, texts and phone calls not going through. There is no benefit to ignoring a potential customer, so we hope that if the situation arises, Mr. [Member Name Removed] will give us another chance to show him the great service we know we can provide.

There's a man named Jeff that is good. I only ask for him. Sometimes they come to spray and others for mice. They do come on demand if needed.

Nick M.

We are in the process of selling a home and during the inspection, insect issues were identified. Chris from Big Blue Bug came out within 3 business days of my initial call and provided his analysis. He was extremely knowledgeable and gave me a great tutorial on the insects in question. He provided the cost and solution and was very, very fair. I will be having him return to my new property to engage in preventative services as well! Great experience overall.

Service Provider Response

We are greatly sorry that you felt our inspector was a little rude. It is always our intention to treat all of our customers with the utmost respect. There may have been a misunderstanding or a miscommunication that caused this feeling. We do think it is important to note that this "customer" did not actually hire us to do any pest control work. This "customer's" review is based soley on a free inspection. As for our price being high, we feel our prices are fair and reasonable for the work that we do and what is covered by our services. Not all services are the same, a lower (or higher) price from another company is rarely for the same exact service. There are a variety of types of service we offer (as well as what other companies offer), and depending on what the scope of the work is going to be, the pests that will be covered by the plan and the warranty given, there can be a wide variety of prices. When comparing prices, it is imprtant to remember to compare all the features of a service when choosing which service to go with. If there are anymore questions or concerns, we will be happy to discuss them further.
