This is the worst service I have had and then on top of that to charge me a cancellation fee for a service that never got rid of the bug. Crappy service don't recommend using them they will spray and put down traps but don't guarantee anything as they say.

Nicole L came out for a free inspection after I found rodent feces in my newly-purchased home, which had been left in not-so-clean condition. She thought I may have a problem based on the initial evidence, but after a thorough examination of the property inside and out, including attic, garage, a/c unit, appliance hook-ups, etc. determined everything was clear. Apparently, the past owners had a guinea pigs or didn't clean up from a previously mitigated problem. Nicole answered all my questions and was very respectful. I would definitely call Truly Nolen again based on my experience with her. Tonight will be the first night I can sleep without worrying about rodents running through the house in the dark. Thank you, Nicole.

I have termites! It took a third inspector to come to my home from Truly Nolen - Pest Control... analyze the issue and re-treat my infected areas in my home. And, hopefully for the last time. I want to comment on the last inspector, Caleb. He was very very professional.....far beyond the first two. Caleb took time to thoroughly explain what he observed and what he would do to remedy the problem. He maintained an open line of communication and he was always timely in replying. I take great pride in stating: " Caleb is who you want to request - if you have a insect problem - YOU CAN count on a first class experience. " 👍

This past Saturday after Thanksgiving, when it began to rain here in Galveston, I caught a rat on a glue trap. I called Truly Nolen. Mr. C, the regional manager out of Houston returned my call. He told me Mr. Kendall would arrive on Monday. Kendall arrived Monday. He did a complete diagnostic of previous exclusion wiring. He went under the house and found places above the exclusion wire where rats could enter. The area of Galveston where I live is endemic for roof rats, given the drainage construction on Broadway Boulevard, high-rise public housing, and empty, dormant homes in the neighborhood. A very significant infestation of roof rats was identified nearly across the street where I live. Kendall indicated all of these things and gave my home a high sense of priority. Kendall spent a full three days underneath my home. Because I live in a historic district, all the homes on my block are very old. Kendall went into the crawl space and identified several areas, including the floor spaces above the exclusion wiring. He also identified breaches in the exclusion wire due to work done by termite contractors. Kendall's time and effort spent at my home was above-and-beyond anything I have ever experienced with any other pest control company. The entire crawl space, above the perimeter and in the center beam of the house was addressed with foaming, exclusion wiring, and other abatements. Kendall spent three full days to make me whole. There is no better pest control company that I can imagine to take the time needed to rid my house of roof rats. Thank you, Truly Nolen. I am truly appreciative of your service. Hank in Galveston

I have dealt with Truly Nolen professionally for years. So I know how they are behind the scenes, which is first rate. They really care. Now personally I was in need of their services. I had some termite issues. Jason came out for my inspection. He was very knowledgeable and through. He answered all my questions in detail. Today was I was scheduled for treatment. Mike showed up right on time. He took Jason's notes and did a further inspection and verified what he was given to do. Greg showed up shortly after Mike's arrival to assist. They tag teamed the work and finished sooner than I was expecting. When they were done they both checked with me to see if I had any questions. They were very personable, efficient and respectful of my home. Truly, you "Truly" have a great team! Thank you!

Frank C III, is the Service Coordinator, Truly Nolen sent out to help me, and my girlfriend. And boy, I'm I glad they did!! He is really on top of his profession!!! He is always on time, first of all, then as soon as he introduces himself, it's all uphill from there!!! He is very, very knowable about termites, bedbugs, and all other insects. He will then suggest to you the best way to get rid of all your insects, at a very timely, cost efficient, and professional way. He is without a doubt, the most professional, friendly, knowable and courteous person I have ever had the pleasure of meeting!!! As far as I'm concerned he should be running ,Truly Nolen !!!

I used the company based in Lancaster County, PA. A month ago I discovered a hornet's nest in a tree. I called and someone came out the next day and removed the nest. No problems and I was satisfied with their service. Then this past week I discovered 5-6 yellow jackets in my bedroom over a week's time. I realized on a Thursday night that I needed to get this taken care of ASAP. I called the same company on Friday. They sent someone out; he found the nest which had partly invaded my home via a window well to the basement. He advised me to put some masking tape over my heating/AC vent in the bedroom to keep the strays away from my bedroom. Another tech came out this morning ( a Saturday) and took care of the problem. They offer a guarantee but I'm hoping my problem is solved. They have been easy to deal with very professional. I would definitely recommend them.

I have used Truly Nolen at my last two residences. At my current residence I use them twice a year. They are always on time and the representative is attentive to the concerns I have. My first experience was a very memorable. We had just purchased our first home and learned at night; the bugs did come out. It seemed like the ground was moving. The next day I called them and they were at my house taking care of business. I never saw another critter. I my new house, I am making sure I do not relive that moving ground experience. They come do their professional duties twice a yea, during the summer they spray the outside, at the beginning of winter they spray inside and out. A Great company.

These guys got rid of my problem with spiders. Being allergic to any spider bites is alarming, but upon seeing a black widow spider in my kitchen, I had to call someone to make sure there was no more to encounter. The technician was very nice and pointed out where they might have came in. He assessed the problem and treated the house so the spiders could not get in. Since then, I have not seen any spiders. Thank you, Truly Nolen !

I used Truly Nolen at my last residence to take care of a flea infestation left by the previous renters. The fleas were just out of control and even though I used products to kill them, they didn't work and I had to resort to calling a professional. I'm not sure what they used, but the flea problem was eradicated with just one treatment, along with treating my dog with prevention, of course. The person that completed the process was friendly, arrived as scheduled, and answered all of my questions. Overall, it was a positive experience!

I signed up with this company. I did not need service for a couple of months due to a contract I held with another company. I had TRULY Nolen here one time and two weeks later I had crickets. I called the company its and 800 number and push one for this and two for this.. UGH then its a week before they can come. Sorry guys going back to my old company. So I called to cancel and now there is a $170 cancellation fee! WHAT? No one told me that when I started with them. And if I am leaving because I have bugs and not happy with the service, Why do I have to pay. The lady I finally got to talk to who spoke bad English said if I don't pay it they will send it to collections. The treatment AFTER they have you sign a contract is not the same as when they are signing you up. People stay away from this company. Money is all they care about. I am going to post my experience on every social media outlet that I can find. I was told if I wanted to cancel I should have contacted them within 30 days of signing the contract. It didn't matter to them that it was almost two months after signing the contract that I actually had service. SERIOUSLY STAY AWAY FROM TRULY NOLEN!!!
