Pests are pests

When I purchased my new house, I only realized afterwards that this house had a history of rodents. The previous owners were sloppy and the garage was full of junk, that you only got to see what was truly there until they moved out.

At first I thought the rodent issue was only in the garage, so I closed any possible openings. For several months we didn't have any issues until the winter came. Noticed some interesting burrowed holes in the backyard and in the snow that led to my shed. Laid out a few traps, killed a few rats, then tore down the shed. Found a few rat nests under the shed, but no entrance into the house. It was dumbfounding, as I began to hear the rats in the walls. Tried more traps, killed a couple of more, still heard movement in the walls. Tore down my deck a year earlier than planned, as I need to locate possible entrances into the house. Couldn't find any. After killing all the rats, the mice moved in! Couldn't win and I had to bring in help.

Hired Rich to inspect and lay bait stations. He pointed out that the rats were entering the house by climbing a tree and entering between the brick and siding. I never thought to look up. And the mice were entering through the loose backyard water pipe and/or the dryer vent. Rich laid down traps inside the house, while I sealed off the possible modes of entrances from the outside.

Although Rich offered the 3-month package, he suggested it would not be necessary in my case, as there was no full-blown infestation; but I was not going to risk it. Providing Rich updates, he was able to come by a second time and replace the existing bait stations with fresh ones, which allowed him to provide an update on the possible numbers of mice. With less bait stations showing signs of feeding, the number of mice left over was small. It was definitely a long battle, as the mice began to dwindle in numbers and die out.

I will never forget the loud crunching noises the mice made when eating from the bait stations. It sounded like it was 100x its size. Rich was great, courteous, and informative.

Bees and caterpillars

This is the second year we have used D.A.R.N because they are extremely thorough, reliable and knowledgeable. Richard was very nice to work with and would definitely recommend! Last year we had Richard extract a bee hive from our fireplace and this year he helped us deal with a caterpillar infestation. This year when Richard realized he wasn’t going to need all the spray he anticipated he deducted $50 from quote. Hard to fine such honesty and professionalism these days! Thanks again Richard

Pest control

Richard from Darn Pest control did a great job checking the exterior and interior of my home, ensuring unwanted house guests (mice) do not make their way into my home.
His knowledge, advice and attention to detail were all appreciated.

Wasp Nest Removal

I had a wasp nest in the front of my house and D.A.R.N Pest Control Services was able to assess my situation. In addition to the great work, their customer service was amazing. They safely removed the nest and gave me tips on what to look out for in the future. I would strongly recommend their services. I'm thankful that I now how have a trusted source for these types of matters.w

Pest control

I learned from direct experience why Richard and DARN get such great reviews. They're great! Richard is a very nice guy who is very good at not being nice to pests. He accommodated our schedule and patiently walked us through the process of getting rid of unwanted critters, both before and after doing the work. I'm confident the work was done the right way, and with the safety of our family and dog top of mind.
