Dodson Bros. Exterminating Co., Inc. started was founded in 1944 in Lynchburg, Virginia. Today, the company boasts being one of the largest family-owned pest control companies in North America. The company provides both commercial and residential pest control services, termite control, bed bug management, moisture control, and rodent management.
Dodson Bros. currently provides pest control services to residents of Virginia, West Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Eastern Tennessee, and the District of Columbia metropolitan area.
Dodson Bros. knows that household pests are more than just a nuisance. Ants, rodents, cockroaches, and other problem pests can lead to structural damage and health problems. Dodson Bros. states that its technicians use a comprehensive and efficient system to remove any pests from the home. Using Integrated Pest Management (IPM), the company will identify and eliminate any contributing factors that enable unwanted pests to survive.
After the initial inspection, the technician will come up with a customized treatment plan to address any concerns. Depending on the type of pest and wherein the home, the problem occurs will determine what kind of treatment is needed. Homeowners and business can expect any of the following treatments:
Dodson Bros. uses an effective termiticide called Termidor. Termidor is applied underneath and around the home. When a termite comes in contact with the insecticide, it becomes a carrier and will transmit the termiticide to the rest of the colony.
Pests are bad news for a business. That’s why Dodson Bros. offers commercial services for a number of different business types. Whether it’s a restaurant, warehouse, retail store, or a housing complex, unwanted pests and critters can ruin a company’s reputation.
Businesses interested in working with Dodson Bros. to get rid of a pest problem will need to fill out a request consultation form on the company’s website.
There are few details as to what a pest control plan contains. Dodson’s site simply states that it uses the Integrated Pest Management system to identify and treat pests and that the company has several strategies when it comes to managing pests. Before signing up, many customers like to know the details of what their treatment plan will contain and how often it will be implemented. While a pest control treatment plan does depend on several factors, it would be helpful to customers to have at least a general idea of what to expect.
Dodson states that its employees have the knowledge and training to treat any specific pest problem, but it does not say what kind of training or certification its employees go through.
Other companies in the industry will offer additional services alongside their pest control plans. Dodson does not offer any kind of lawn, attic, or crawlspace services.
Technician is always friendly and knows what he is doing. I like that they are consistent with the scheduling of service and arrive when they say are going to.
I moved into a home and had no idea of the infestation that was in the home. We tried a few store brought remedies and to no avail. Called Dodson and I was amazed at how many insects were killed and didn't return.

Very satisfied with David M,he is very friendly and helpful.Always reliable and on time.Totally satisfied and highly recommended
Rick W, from Dodson, has been my exterminator for the past 2 years - in Hampton, VA. He is extremely knowledgeable, friendly and keeps my house pest free.
Elijah B just left my house for my monthly inspection. He did a thorough inspection just like it was the first time here. Checked everything outside and replaced any items that needed to be replaced. He explained in detail a few things about these critters, lol I didn't know. He sent me a text about 4 days before letting me know when he would be here. Totally satisfied with him and this company. I would highly recommend. They deliver what they advertise!
Remy comes on time and is very honest about his findings. I appreciate his patience and knowledge.
They are really reliable and trustworthy
Dodson came to take care of the mice and rats. Did not go over the service agreement! Or even mention what it meant, NEVER heard the word CONTRACT! They said I would have to pay a little more than $200, 25 thereafter. Was charged $50 ongoing instead for about a 5 minute job. Ants and spiders are still a problem, so I called to cancel...she said "okay!" However, even after the scheduled date, they were banging on the door but left before I could answer...did leave a bill for $50 though! Laughed at me when I called! Terrible, unethical "men"
"I'm here to sell product" said John the technician in Staunton. He failed to identify, locate or remedy a severe bird Mite infestation. He was condescending to me, treated me as if I was delusional and told my landlord what he wanted to hear only as my landlord's wallet was the one he was trying to tap into. Typical salesman tactics. He sold LL on a "fungus" attic treatment. Got him for over a grand and down payment secured before he left. Bird nests in awnings, bird excrement piling up by windows and mites climbing curtains every warm day we have. Gross negligence. Unethical. He said to me "report me" when I expressed my feelings about his "inspection" here. I've tried to talk to owner, nobody returns calls. He did get some instant karma coming out of the basement as he smacked his head on the doorframe. I had to laugh. Consumers beware.
Very satisfied with Dodson Bros! Kelly M is always very helpful, friendly and ready to assist in any areas I may have an extra need!!
Initial visit very high. $200 for 30 minutes. Not effective. Paid a year in advance. Supposed to have service every two months. Did not get it. Cancelled our agreement. Took forever to get money back. Would neither do business with them again nor would I recommend them.
First time not free.Had to sign a contract,told an agent would call to make appointment in 2 months.Well,the ugly.First spray not affective.I bought 2 gal bug spray and redone job every week.2 montrhs past and no notification.Want to cancel and get a better pest controller.
