We are not distracted nor bound by corporate mandates and we’re more flexible and responsive to your needs.
We take great personal pride in our company and the high standards we set for our employees. It’s important to us to develop a long-term relationship with all our customers so that we may continue to protect their family’s families’ homes and property from pests and the damage they can cause.
As a family-owned company, we answer to you, not to corporate managers. And that’s what is most important at Better Termite & Pest Control.

Would have been 5 star but they didn’t show for first appointment after advising in morning that they would be arriving between 12.30 -1.30 pm … no phone call just didn’t show … I had to call them to arrange another appointment.. very frustrating after many years of good service

Honestly, we were thinking of o change service because previous service were not really good. However, it’s couple time when you sent Freddie. He has done an excellent job, inside and outside he is the best and very professional that we haven’t seen over the last 20 years we have used pets control with your company or Termix. We would request Freddie to service our home each time from now on. //Kevin Le

We had a contract with better termite and pest control for the mosquitoes and we will hire them again next year because enjoyed spending time outside this year very much. My husband and I are the first person would know if there is mosquitoes. Worth it.

I grew up with the original owners 3 sons. The youngest son took over the company after his parents retired. They were an excellent company back in 1970 and continue with the same values and business ethics today. I strongly recommend them for your insect, pest and rodent control.

When we first started using Better Termite & Pest Control, we had a small issue with a service call. However, after calling them, they were very responsive to rectify the situation. I appreciate their customer service. The tech that services our house is very nice and she always ask if we are seeing any insects in the house. She keeps me updated on her arrival and services the house well. We have been customers for the past 3-years.

Juan quickly helped us identify our yellow jacket issue and treated our yard appropriately. After hearing we were first time homeowners, he took an extra 30 minutes walking around our home with us and giving us tips for keeping out unwanted pests. We will definitely use Juan and Better Pest in the future!
