Bee removal

I have used Dave’s service once before and when we found out we had a bee problem I knew exactly who to call. Dave is a calm and reassuring professional who provides outstanding service on very call. Our problem while not unique was very concerning. We discovered during repairs to our basement, a bee hive consisting of over 500 bees inside one of our walls. Dave immediately came over and despite working beyond midnight was able to remove them all.He is friendly, knowledgeable and exacting in his work. Dave not only explains what treatment he is using but what results to expect. He is always willing to answer every question and address your concerns. I can’t thank him enough for the wonderful job he did and would highly recommend him to anyone in need of pest removal services. He is definitely our first choice.

Carpenter ants

I cannot say enough about Dave. I had another company last year, and they did the inside of our house, and then came back literally 5 times to spray outside. It cost us $1000 for these visits. They were just randomly spraying and had no idea what they were doing. When I kept calling them to let them know we still had so many ants outside they said most people don't care about ants outside, but I knew they were still coming into our house because they were crawling up the walls. They acted like I was crazy.
I phoned Dave early this season because I was afraid we would run into the same problem. He said we would still have carpenter ants 100%. Sure enough as soon as the warm weather arrived, they were all outside, and I was really afraid they would show up inside.
Dave said, if you don't find the nest, and the queen carpenter ant, you will not get rid of them. He talked to us for about an hour on the phone to try to determine where the nest might be, and he suggested there may be a leak on the roof around the chimney. We had a roof person come, and sure enough, that was where they were getting in, and where the nest was. If Dave had not suggested this, we would have had much more damage on our home, and this problem with the ants would not have been solved. Then Dave came and walked our property and home, and gave us suggestions as to how to ant proof our property, and did the treatment.
He was so nice, took his time, and really helped us through a very stressful situation.
We highly recommend Paramount Pest Control.
Thank you so much.

Pest control

David was amazing! He initially spent over an hour on the phone with us in the middle of the night, when I was only expecting to get a voice mail and leave a message. We had just bought a new house and when removing our dishwasher we found an infestation of maggots and fuzzy bugs. David quickly I’d’ our problem as being carpet beetles, (which we had never heard of), he as a few questions, laid out the options, and basically calmed us down.
When he came over to spray our pests, he first did a through search of the house and he noticed that we also had a carpenter ant problem. He pointed out the problem areas, and sure enough, he led me down to the basement where he found the ant colony living between a double 2x8 beam.
Despite the previous owners attempt to cover up all of these issues, David was able to quickly pin point the problem areas and resolved our problems. He even offered to check our attic and place rodenticide bait boxes.
David also offered to write up a report on his findings, and his opinions on how the previous owner could in no way have not been aware of these issues prior to sale.
David was amazing, he was extremely personable and genuine. 10/10

Excellent Mouse Control

We had previously used another company to deal with keeping mice out of our house. When the mice returned after about a year, we decided to try another company for a fresh approach. We are really happy we chose Paramount. Dave came quickly and spent about 3 hours with us. He found and sealed the entry holes and inspected our basement and attic. He placed several sealed boxes of commercial rodenticide that should ensure against future mouse problems. He is highly knowledgeable, patient and thorough and answered all of our questions. Highly recommended!

Wasp Extermination

David was amazing. He took his time to assess the situation and come up with the best method/solution to exterminate a serious wasp nests situation we were faced with in our house. He was very polite, compassionate, thorough, meticulous with excellent integrity in his workmanship. We would refer him to anyone with similar issues and we are so happy that we know who to call for situations like this. The wasp situation was very stressful to our family (the wasps were entering from the siding of our house to my little daughter's room!!), and he really took care of this situation with his high quality of work. We are very grateful of David and his service. Thank you David!!

Ant extermination

David is excellent. He's extremely thorough. He explained his process, and I was able to help identify the location of many ant nests. In Fall 2017, David successfully eliminated several ant locations.

However, this spring, at least one nest was still alive. It was buried deep in the attic above my kitchen and there was no way his initial treatment could have penetrated the area. I worked with David to figure out generally where the nest could be and I removed the trim for about 6 feet so that David could really spray in the correct spot.

It takes work to get rid of the ants. They worked hard over the years to build their homes inside of mine! But they're gone now and David's diligence to get the treatment into the right spots means they won't be back for good!

In a bind for time my landlord had to choose another company ,that was a huge mistake. after two sprays and countless bites Dave came too our rescue. He took the time on a Saturday afternoon over an hour by phone and truly listened to my needs and concerns. The next day he was by spent another hour and a bit going over the procedure the do's and dont's for the next 3 weeks. He is attentive, knowledgeable and a great person who actually cares about his clients. My kids and I send a huge thank you for coming to our rescue!!!!!!!!!

Wasp removal

Dave understands the pride that people have in their homes, and the stress of trying to protect your family from pests. He approaches each job with those understandings in mind. Dave goes above and beyond with his services, and I highly reccomend him.

I came across Dave after having issues with another pest control company. I had a growing wasp nest on the side of my house. The wasps were starting to get aggressive, and I have two small children, so I needed it dealt with right away. Dave provided same-day service and was also more affordable than the other company.

Dave was worth every penny. I tried to offer him more money for all the work he did, but he wouldn't accept it. I thought I was just hiring Dave to remove two wasp nests, but he did a safety inspection of our property and ended up removing four wasp nests, carpenter ants, several colonies of cement eating ants, and he found and patched a large hole that mice had chewed in the side of our house around our air conditioning unit. He then did an inspection of our basement to see if we had a mouse problem as a result of the hole. He noticed that mice had chewed a similar hole in my neighbours house and patched it for free.

Dave is also very considerate. We have a tiny old dog, and even though Dave's spray is environmentally friendly (chrysanthemum oil mixture,) he was worried about our dog walking on it because he's so small. Dave took the time to make a cardboard path for our dog so he could reach the grass.

I can't say enough good things about Dave. Four of our neighbours hired him as well, and they were all just as happy as us. He gave them all the same time, level of consideration, and great price that he gave us. I strongly reccomend him. Bottom line- great guy, great service, and great company.

One note: Due to the nature of his work he's not sitting at a desk all day with his phone on him. You may need to give him an hour or so to call you back. He will get back to you though, he will be extremely friendly, and he will provide great service.

Carpernter Ant Eradication

Dave provided outstanding service to get rid of carpenter ants from our new home! From the outset, Dave's knowledge enabled us to identify that we had a carpenter ant issue before we bought the house and he spent time with my fiance and I on the phone to walk us through what needed to be done to deal with it. Dave spent over 7 hours at our house thoroughly assessing the place for evidence of ant nests and did a full assessment of our yard as well. He was able to locate and eradicate 3 ant nests (including the queen!) and we've been able to sleep easily knowing that our home is ant-free. Overall, Dave is very reliable, knowledgeable and has some great stories to tell. We would highly recommend seeking out his services.

Mice problem in house

Paramount Pests are an honest, professional and skilled at what they do. Attention to detail along with great customer service rid my home of these critters. The confidence and comfort David gave me far outweighed that of the previous pest companies. Thank you Paramount.
