The Good

  • Environmentally Conscious
  • Targeted Pests
  • Four Seasons Protection Plan
  • Aptive Reservice Guarantee
  • Commercial Pest Services
  • Nothing But Nets
  • Aptive Reviews

Environmentally Conscious

Consumer safety is at the forefront of Aptive's business structure. The pest control company aims to provide customers with a natural pesticide and other pest control solutions that pose little health risk to humans and the environment.

Everything Aptive does — from its application methods, technician training, products, integrated pest management techniques — reveals the companies' dedication to providing responsible pest control solutions and making homes safer, life easier, and allowing businesses to be more productive. This is one of the ways that it stands out from its competition in the commercial pest control industry.

Targeted Pests

Aptive pest control products specialize in eradicating almost any conceivable pest problem:

  • Ants — A number of different types of ants may find their way into your home. Whether it is the Argentine Ant, Fire Ant, Odorous Ant, Pavement Ant, Pharaoh Ant, Thief Ant, or Carpenter Ants it is likely that they are looking for food or water that may have been spilled in the kitchen. It is important to remember that where there is one ant, there is an entire colony. Aptive's pest control products help kill not only the ants that venture into your home, but the entire colony.
  • Cockroaches — Similar to ants, a number of different types of cockroaches exist in the United States. Some include: The American Cockroach, Brown Banded Cockroach, German Cockroach, oriental Cockroach, and Smokybrown Cockroach. If you start seeing cockroaches in your home, there are likely a number of them as they are very good at hiding.
  • Spiders — A large number of species of spiders can be found in your home. Some of the most common include: The Black Widow, Brown Recluse, Garden Spider, Hobo Spider, House Spider, and Wolf Spider. Though some spider bites may just cause irritation or swelling, others can pose serious health risks.
  • Rodents — Mice and rats are quite good and chewing through most things keeping them out of your home. In the process, they can cause thousands of dollars of damage.
  • Stingers and biters — If you have been bitten or stung by a bug, it likely was not an enjoyable experience. Some of these insects that may find their way into your home are: Centipedes, Mud Daubers, Scorpions, Tick and Flea control, Wasps, Yellow Jackets and other stinging insects. The pest control company carries special pest control products to target each of these pests.
  • Pantry pests — These pests include, but are not limited to, Indian Meal Moths, Grain Beetles, Granary Weevils, and Rice Weevils.
  • Other common pests — Depending on the season and your geographical location, it is not uncommon to see: Aphids, Crickets, Earwigs, Millipedes, Pill Bugs, Silverfish Bugs, and Snails.

If you are unsure whether or not Aptive offers services to remove a certain type of insect, contact a customer representative for inquiries.

Four Seasons Protection Plan

Aptive's Four Seasons Protection Plan starts with a thorough initial visit, inspecting a homeowner's property by a certified pest control technician. The technician will identify areas that are at risk for a pest infestation — whether it be an ant, bedbug, spider, cockroach, or rodent problem. The technician will then customize a treatment plan that aims to keep the property pest free all year round.

Aptive Reservice Guarantee

For most homeowners, it's not about if the pests return, but when. Aptive offers unlimited free re-services. The treatments are generally done outside of the home, but homeowners can request an indoor treatment at no extra cost.

Commercial Pest Services

Unwanted pests can damage a business's reputation in just a matter of a few weeks. Aptive offers expert services that are tailored to meet the needs, no matter the industry or business. Aptive will service the following industries:

  • Professional office buildings
  • Medical and dental offices
  • Warehouses and storage facilities
  • Pharmacies
  • Retail and department stores
  • Daycare centers
  • Malls and shopping centers
  • Churches, synagogues, and temples
  • Car dealerships
  • Funeral homes

Nothing But Nets

Aptive Environmental is dedicated to protecting people all over the world from disease-carrying pests and has partnered with the United Nation's "Nothing But Nets" campaign to stop malaria (a disease transmitted by mosquito bites). Aptive donates a portion of the company's profits to "Nothing But Nets" on an annual basis to provide insecticide-treated bed nets to countries in need. On the Aptive Environmental website, willing customers can donate $10 to the "Nothing But Nets" campaign and send a net to protect those in need.

Aptive Reviews

Aptive Reviews on BestCompany.com are majority positive — 87 percent of customers award the company 4 or 5 stars. These positive reviews most often highlight the following:

  • Attentive and professional technicians
  • Responsive customer service and quick problem resolution
  • Outstanding communication
  • Thorough home and pest assesments
  • Effective pest treatments

The Bad

  • Treats for Common Household Pests Only
  • Limited State Coverage

Treats for Common Household Pests Only

While Aptive offers general pest control services, the company does not provide services for bed bug, termite control, or mole control and prevention. Many other pest control companies offer wildlife control, lawn services (fertilization, weed control, lawn care), crawl space services, and attic services (attic insulation and attic restoration). Additionally, Aptive does not treat for mosquitoes.

Limited State Coverage

Aptive Environmental is only offered in 28 states in the United States. Only residents of the following states can sign up for Aptive's services:

  • Arizona
  • California
  • Colorado
  • Washington, DC
  • Florida
  • Iowa
  • Illinois
  • Indiana
  • Kansas
  • Kentucky
  • Massachusetts
  • Michigan
  • Minnesota

  • Ohio
  • Oklahoma
  • Oregon
  • Pennslyvania

If you're not in this service area, you will have to look at other pest control companies

The Bottom Line

Although relatively young compared to other companies in the pest control industry and it's limited geographic coverage, Aptive has a lot to offer. The company focuses on providing eco-friendly pest solutions that will keep families safe and allow commercial properties to stay in business. Rather than offering a generic treatment plan, Aptive technicians create a personalized solution that meets the direct needs of the customer and promises to return (for free) when the pests come back.

The majority of our Aptive Environmental review catalog (read below) reveal that customers are happy with the great service they received and felt that the service technicians were attentive to their home's unique needs. Aptive employees are encouraged to be committed and passionate about their work, build a positive culture through kindness and loyalty, remember to give back, educate, improve daily, and deliver "wow" customer service. If available in your geographic region, we recommend that homeowners and businesses use Aptive for their pest control needs.

Aptive has serviced my house for about 3 yrs and have controlled the pest issues I was having previously. There have been a few times after a treatment I would still see an issue, but their free reservice always fixed the problem. Their customer service is also helpful and friendly.

Aptiva will do you right. One month they came out and we had heavy rain and it washed away the pesticide. They wound up coming out two more times to put the barrier down around the house and did not charge us extra for the service even though that second time was just days away from the scheduled service. They are worth giving a chance.

I’d like to commend Aptive technician Aaron G for his excellent performance yesterday September 2 2022 in my property, Aaron’s attention to detail answering specific questions and hard-work thereafter while on the premises in my opinion is a testament to his dedication and integrity. Aaron is an asset to Aptive, and I’d love to have him back on my next schedule service, thank you Aaron for your hard work and honesty.

We have been using aptive for 3 years now and Sommer is by far the best representative we have had to date. She is friendly, thorough, communicates her arrival and departure information in a very timely fashion. She is professional and clearly takes pride in her work. I enjoy having the same representative each application and she has been the best one to date.

I am extremely disappointed and dissatisfied in the service provided my Aptive Environmental. I have made multiple complaints regarding the worthless service rendered on my property to address a rat and mice problem in my backyard. My cat continues to bring half dead rats/mice into my home and is doing a better job than Aptive at addressing the problem. A technician randomly contacted me on 9/21 stating they would be providing another service and I informed them that I was out of town and when I would return. The technician came to my home anyway and completed an unapproved service in my front yard only due to not having access to my backyard (the issues is not in my front yard) then next thing I know I was charged for the unapproved service. Now Aptive Environmental is refusing to issue me a full refund for this unapproved “service.” Not acceptable. DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY!! They do not communicate well, their remedies are ineffective for rats and rodents, they are unprofessional, and they will not honor their 10/10 customer experience rating guarantee. Horrible experience overall.

We had the lovely Aniya F come to our home yesterday. She texted us before she arrived and then spoke with my husband and addressed all our issues. She even sent pictures and gave a full report of what she did at our home. I was at work so it was super helpful to know what she did while I was gone. Service was impeccable and hopefully all the ants will be gone from our trampoline in the next few days!

We had serious ant issues! I’m talking large ant hills in the front, back and side yards. Ants all over the yard and sidewalks, even in our house. After 2 applications the problem is so much better. The ant hills are gone in the front and sides ( I haven’t walked the backyard, but I feel confident that they’re gone too). I was a bit skeptical when they came to my door to pitch their service (we have been burned badly by a siding company that folded before the job was finished). I am glad we decided to try Aptive, their communication is great - they respond quickly to texts/calls and they have done an amazing job!

The people who come out to do the work are always friendly and professional. Once, I had to reschedule an appt for an upcoming service date and sent an email to customer service like the instructions said to do if needing to cancel or reschedule (I had called by phone but could not reach someone due to wait times) but then when the old service date came where I was not available, they still came out to do the appt. I had wanted to be there. Not sure what the miscommunication was. Other than that, I have no issues with them.

Aptive Environmental has been a wonderful company to work with. They do a fantastic job of letting you know when they will be coming out, the tech for that visit always knocks at the door at their arrival and lets us know they are there. They ask if there are any specific bugs you are having difficulty with and ensure that the treatment include spray to target that type of bug. Everyone I have worked with has been very kind and professional.

I’ve been using Aptive for about 4 years now. When we first moved into our home we discovered we had a HUGE ant problem, and tons of widow spiders all around the property. Couldn’t get rid of them no matter what. Called Aptive and the ants were GONE after the first visit and the spider sightings are few and far between now. And I know that if I do get any unwelcome pests that show up between scheduled service appointments, all I have to do is call and they’ll be there at no extra charge. The service technicians are always friendly, knowledgeable and courteous.

Very courteous; great communication to advise me of when they will be here a few days before and the day of. Plus the technician will call the day of application to give you an estimated time. The most important experience is that there are no spiders, stink bugs, etc, in my house since they spray around the perimeter of my house. Their service is well worth the price.
