The Good

  • Guarantees
  • Commercial Services
  • Lawn and Weed Control Program
  • Residential Pest Control

Guarantees

What is exceptional about Preventive Pest Control are their service guarantees. Most companies in the pest control industry only offer one guarantee. Preventive, however, provides a total of four service guarantees:

  • Satisfaction Guarantee: Preventive Pest Control guarantees that if during any given month customers are living with inordinate pest problems despite giving Preventive Pest Control repeated opportunities to manage such problems, they will be credited or refunded 100 percent of their last regular bi-monthly service fee until such problems are brought under control.
  • Re-Service Guarantee: Preventive Pest Control guarantees to provide additional service, upon request, between regularly scheduled visits at no additional cost.
  • Price Guarantee: Preventive Pest Control guarantees that each customer's bi-monthly rate will not increase for a minimum of two years.
  • Pest Control Guarantee: Pest Control guarantees to control covered pests in and around the home through regular pest control service.

Commercial Services

Preventive's commercial services focus on prevention of pest infestation, although they provide state of the art technology and professional pest technicians to neutralize pest threats. Their business protection plans include thorough inspections of a business' property and taking the time to assess the business' needs. For each client, Preventive devises a cost-effective pest control plan. Industries they serve include:

  • Food and Beverage Processing
  • Food Services
  • Healthcare
  • Hospitality Properties
  • Retail Stores
  • Office Buildings
  • Schools and Dorms
  • Property Management for Apartments

Weed and Lawn Control Program

One unique service Preventive offers is its Weed and Lawn Control Program. This is a well-rounded complement to any pest control program in the non-winter months. Their services include:

  • Proper application of fertilizers
  • Core aeration
  • Insect control
  • Proper watering
  • Seeding

Along with the above services, customers also receive help to understand how to take care of their lawn and how to make it weed-free. These services are also eco-sensitive, using less toxic pesticides.

Residential Pest Control

Pests can cause thousands of dollars in structural damage to a home, while also posing a severe health threat to families. Preventive Pest Control strives to prevent unwanted insects, rodents, and termites from ever entering a home without jeapordizing the health of residents or pets. The residential pest control service is a thorough pest management process that eliminates a current pest problem and focuses on pest prevention. The common pest control solutions Preventive Pest Control provides are:

  • Ant control
  • Cockroach control
  • Rodent control
  • Scorpion control
  • Spider control
  • Stinging insect control
  • Termite control

The Bad

  • Bi-Monthly Rates
  • Lacking Price Information

Bi-Monthly Rates

Although the mandatory one-year contract is not extremely unreasonable, their bi-monthly rate may not be the best option for someone needing more flexibility. It can result in early cancellation fees for someone already on a tight budget. It would be better if they, similar to a short list of their national competitors, offer a one-time treatment option "as-needed" or a month to month service plan.

Lacking Price Information

Regarding payments, Preventive Pest Control does not make pricing options available to potential customers. For example, although there is a contract, Preventive does not disclose the details of their contracts. Customers have to contact the company directly to learn any contract details.

gavel

The Bottom Line

Preventive Pest Control offers customers a plethora of guarantees to ease the financial burden of pest control services. With the company offering services to get rid of rodents, ants, termites, stinging insects, and other household pests; they should be on the Top five list of companies worth checking out if residing in New Mexico, Arizona, Texas, Utah, Nevada, or California. Preventive Pest also offers multiple satisfaction guarantees, so customers can expect professional pest technicians to get rid of problem pests and stop pest infestations. It is also viable for those needing lawn care and weed control; customers can benefit from bundling their pest control and lawn care into one service package.

Preventive Pest Control is not a good option if someone is looking for a "pay-as-you-go" or one-time treatments as-needed.

Enzo Croydon, CRY

David L (RH) visited my property after we had a pigeon issue where they were nesting under our solar panels. He was professional and reliable and did the protection job he said he would really efficiently. Previous to speaking to David I had given up and thought there was nothing we could do. This should now resolve the issue which I’m really pleased about…cheers David! Hubert come to my property because we had mice problem in the cantine for a very long time. He was very quick the guy solved the problem in an hour he was very professional and you can see he know what he was doing. We don’t had any more problem ever since

When we first started with this service were having a terrible ant problem, they came back twice before we were to have our next scheduled visit to take care of the problem. They are very courteous and professional. They also work with us and let us know before they arrive so we can have our dogs in the house. I would highly recommend.

I absolutely LOVED this company! I never had any bug issues once I started with Preventive. No scorpions either. Once I had a large wasp nest in the corner of my roof and the technician handled the situation like the Pro he was. In fact when I called and told them about the wasps they came immediately. You pay monthly but if you have any issues they come out for no extra charge. In my area they started a weed spraying service. I had my doubts at first but once they started I was beyond happy. Yes, People “NO MORE WEED PULLING!” I just loved my tech guys who were so friendly and extremely knowledgeable…Best Company EVER! You will not regret hiring this company…

It would just be nice to have the same tech each time or some of the times so I don't have to tell them what to do each time. And they need to wear shoe covers when they come inside.

I've been with Preventive Pest Control for almost 2 years now. Their customer service is very prompt and they even come back out in 1-2 days for reservice whenever called/texted. They are very thorough in treating my home (interior and exterior), but living next to creek being the insects back. Very satisfied.

We have had Preventive Pest Control for a few years now. We have a huge deck around an above-ground pool which tends to attract wasps. We have also had trouble with mice in a woodpile plus the usual spiders and pests. Preventive comes at regular intervals and whenever we call them about a problem that arises. They respond quickly and take care of us. Whenever another pest control company comes knocking and we tell them we are with Preventive, they confirm that we're in good hands and they can't beat the price.

I have been using preventive for five years and I’ve been extremely happy with their service. They are reliable, they call in advance and send an email, I can count on one hand how many spiders I have seen in my house since I’ve starting using them. The price is affordable and totally worth it. And the workers are always very friendly. The customer service is awesome. I will absolutely continue using them.

I like what they offered and their p ice was a little high. But we didn't get the attention we wanted and had to work hard for the extras. Like inside spraying is included but we had to call ahead and get it setup each time. So it never happened.

We used Preventive for almost 2 years. We used their pest control and lawn services. Some of the techs that came out didn't really have any idea when we would ask them specific questions about lawn maintenance or care, the most helpful answer we would ever get was "just water more". The pest control was great, no pesky spiders or bugs in the house. The problems that we ran into is that they would never call to schedule the maintenance, they would just show up, and when you are working from home and have meetings you really need a heads up. The lawn care was okay...I feel we have done a better job maintaining our lawn that they did. My husband called multiple times about calling ahead to schedule and it fell on deaf ears. Then he called to cancel the services all together and they still continued to send techs out and charge our account for it.

We've been using Preventive for years, and they've always done a good job. They always offer to spray inside if we'd like, but usually the outside treatment does a good enough job taking care of spiders and insects. They have automatic payments set up and let us know in advance when they'll be coming. I saw a significant decrease in spiders specifically after they started spraying.

Preventive uses a fairly effective extermination product that is natural, environmentally friendly and safe around pets. My experience with Preventive's service scheduling was less than satisfactory. Either they were unwilling to work around my work schedule OR they would arrive out of the blue with no notice. Additionally the lawn care service was less effective and far more expensive than me buying weed and feed at the store and applying it myself. When I tried to cancel the service after repeatedly voicing my dismay, I was still required to pay out the rest of the contract for services I didn't receive.

My new apartment was infested with ants, so I called Preventive Pest Control. The exterminator said he couldn't spray my balcony, which was disappointing. There isn't a patio, walkway, or porch below us so I didn't understand why. Regardless, after a week all of the ants were gone. They have not returned and its been several months.

Due to covid my family has had to cut back on some things that aren't as important as others. I contacted Preventive Pest Control and let them know I wouldn't be able to continue my services due to financial issues. They hit me with a large cancelation fee and will not help to reduce this fee. I feel that this company is unwilling to help families that have had some hardship. I would not recommend.
