Joe to the rescue

Joe was exactly what we needed! We have had several critters in our backyard over the years but when we saw a rat we called several exterminators. SNAP went directly to the root cause - an old shed and the space under our deck where these animals were living. They dug a trench around our deck and installed mesh so the animals couldn't get underneath anymore. They also took down and carted away our old shed. It has been 2 months and we no longer have 'unwelcome guests' camped out in the back yard. Joe was quick to respond, very patient and courteous, reasonably priced and did a great job with the construction and the clean up. We would DEFINITELY recommend Joe to other customers.
Other companies we had contacted wanted to sell us plans with recurring visits over several months to place bait. There would have been nothing stopping the animals from moving back in and we would have been paying these companies for many years to come. Like I said, Joe got to the root cause and the investment gave us a permanent solution.
Thanks, Joe!

Rats in the wall

Joe was the third exterminator hired to get rid of rats in the basement wall. The rats were never seen only heard in the wall. Initially, a small hole was cut in the wall, and poison put into the hole. The rat noise would disappear but return months later. This went on for 5 years. The second exterminator after two years of putting poison in the hole suggested that I call Joe, as according to her, he is the best. I must agree. Joe came, assessed the situation and said I needed to cut open a large hole and find the entry point. Thank goodness he was able and willing to come over when the workman cut open the hole. After an hour, and a number of holes later, following the clues - clues only Joe was able to follow, a hole was found. The hole would never have been found without Joe. I am confident, with the amount of concrete that went into the hole, that I will be rat-free, and confident, that if there is another point of entry (god forbid), Joe will be back to find that hole. Joe is professional, cares about his work and you as a client. I would not hesitate to recommend Joe

Thank you for your review. Unfortunately rat issues can be a nightmare for a homeowner and I feel really bad that people are having to deal with these pests in their homes. Rats are very successful creatures and probably found just about anywhere on the planet. These rodents create tunnels under homes or enter via an open drain or crack in a concrete floor which if left accessible become lingering issues. 5 years is a long time but believe me I've seen people sell homes based on rat issues which seemed to never end. Exterminators that believe they can solve rat problems with traps and bait alone without sealing their entry are underestimating the tenacity and capabilities of rats. I'm always asked for my lowest rate and or longest warranty on rat jobs and am amazed at how very little people and or other companies really know about these animals. This particular job went on for 5 years before my insistence that the walls be opened. The access point didn't present itself right away either, even with the open walls I had to go over areas 4 to 5 times before it was found. Therefore I ask how do I provide a warranty on an open hole inside a finished wall that I haven't seen nor have any idea where it may be located in a home over the phone. Impossible, These jobs are a process and involve a systematic approach to resolve them which could be simplistic or very complicated indeed. I've had to gut whole basements to finally block rats out of a home after many failed attempts by pest companies who made there modest money and re- baited and re-baited for years and years before finally giving up. I guess what I'm saying is that this pest is unlike any other and consequently needs to be treated at level beyond the lowest price and best warranty. Rats may require us to open up walls and ceilings and that is not something that can be shopped around. Joe

Fly problem

Joe has been my go to person for all my pest problems for the past 4 years. I called Joe end of July after seeing almost 20 to 30 flies in my house mostly bear my rear sliding doors. Initially thought to be cluster flies hiding in my attic, Joe suggested fogging my attic to get rid of them. Joe arrived promptly but on doing a walk around my house found out the flies were coming in from outside due to some dead/dying leaves that provided an optimal environment for the flies and a gap in my bricks that allows them in. Joe not only sealed the gap but also cleared the leaves. The cost was less than anticipated and I am happy to say after I haven’t seen an annoying flies lately. Joe could have charged me for the fogging and sealing and I wouldn’t have known any better but he is obviously a man of integrity and did an honest job. Being around so many flies was making everyone so miserable so thanks a million Joe.

Thanks for your review. Over the phone this job sounded like a cluster fly issue. Cluster flies breed in worms and can become a real problem for people in rural areas and sometimes
newer homes in new subdivisions. Since the soil is exposed these large flies will migrate upwards and tend to enter a home via sofits and then an attic. I was prepared to fog the attic; however, I noticed a lot of flies in the basement which were not cluster flies but rather bottle flies. Bottle flies like decaying rotting matter and hence I became suspicious and knew there had to be a source. Having walked the perimeter I noticed many of the same flies were clustering around a dead patch of grass which was along the side of the home closest to the utility area. The grass was removed and I could see many flies with their larva underneath it. The location was sprayed heavily and the grass removed offsite as well as sealing off all openings to the home in the vicinity. The home itself had become a sort of fly trap because they could enter but could not find their way out. I found the situation quite interesting in that I've yet to encounter this scenario before in my pest control efforts. The attic was never fogged after all but the real issue was resolved.

Mouse Problem

My husband and I had reached out to Joe for a mouse problem in our home. Joe was professional and thorough. He examined our property inside and out, then pinpointed (and importantly, sealed) their entry points. He patiently walked us through how he identified that entry point, what indicated that mice were indeed entering from the spot, and how it led to the signs of mice that we had noticed in other areas of the house. He was great. He even pointed to other attempts by the previous homeowner (or possibly whomever they hired) to seal spots outside the home. Joe then explained why those would not have been the entry points for what we were witnessing in our home.

It's clear Joe takes pride in his profession and does it well. The fact that he guarantees his work and returns twice, especially a year afterwards, means he cares about the quality of what he does. Returning after a year (all included in the initial price) shows he stands by what he does, unlike other folks who may only "guarantee" their work for the short term. He wants to ensure that the problem really has been taken care if. My husband and I would highly recommend Joe's services.

The fact that they can call me up after a year to follow up on their homes when any other company out there offers a measly 6 months warranty should be an indication of how Snap works. Ask yourself why would you call back on a warranty when the mice are not visible because they went outside for the summer or simply ate some bait. So the bait keeps them out of sight and your 6 months goes by without even a follow up visit. So the company came once while had you gone with Snap you still had 2 more visits to go. A good year is needed to fully rid a house of mice because they can live for a year and reproduce every 2 months. Hence you will notice how the reviews are indicating that there were other companies which could not resolve the mouse problems. Thanks for your review. Joe

Mouse Problem

We’ve had several pest issues with our house over the past two years; but this was the first issue with mice. Although we’d used another company for hose other issues in the past, from Snap’s reviews and website it seemed like a better choice. We called Joe, who came as soon as possible, when we were all available. He did an external inspection and, on entering the house asked if this one particular spot in the house was where we’d been noticing the activity. He asked because he had spotted what was the likely hole outside. He was absolutely right. He filled the hole outside, addressed the inside of the house, and will be back two more times to check on things. So far - fingers crossed - he’s fixed it already. But knowing that he’ll be back to make sure is an enormous comfort. We are extremely pleased!

Thanks guys. Knowing how mice are moving through a home before I conduct my inspection can make me lean to one location over another. I prefer to compare notes afterwards. Also, as I inspect I find it works if I'm by myself in that I need to be focused. May times a home owner may sway me to overlook an area which 6 months later and with the issue not being resolved I find myself going to the overlooked spot and finding the problem. A while back I was doing an inspection with and a client who was adamant that his shed was sealed. The shed was his personal workshop and he knew it inside out he said. I had to plead with him to at least let me have a look. Okay he says, but your wasting your time. The walls were cinder block which was true and I moved his work bench where I found an electrical wire protruding through a hole in a cinder block which was loaded with mice rub marks. So to me I wasn't wasting my time because that hole is 90 % of my job being done. The hole was sealed in 5 minutes. It took more time to convince my client to allow me to inspect his shed than finding the hole and sealing it. I had to fight it out with my client to help him rid his own house of mice. This hole had plagued this family for over 10 years . Oh well just another day in the pest world.

Now this is what I want to hear. Mice calls are up which has surprised me. Something is making these mice want to nest indoors this year and it just may be the weather. I believe the heat has made them seek out air conditioned homes. Never before have I received some many calls in the month of July for mice. This issue should manifest itself in an upsurge of mice activity by mid October when they navigate up through basements where it is cooler and find the kitchen via water pipes or gaps in cabinetry. Lets lock down our homes now before they get too comfortable. Thank you for your review.

Thanks for you review. Seems as if the wasps are in full force this year already. Expect to see an increase in wasp pressure as the summer wears on due to an increase in nest workers and foraging activity. Workers will now start to become a real nuisance as we attempt to entertain outside. Wasps will be seen everywhere as their food which is related to their larva begins to cease. This time last year I was stung going to a wasp job as a wasp flew into my truck through an open window. Anybody with any type of allergic reaction to wasps or bees needs to be on high alert.Joe
