  • Leilani Warden     5 star

Excellent service with warm & friendly attitudes. For many years we’ve had the pleasure of doing business with Bugman Pest Elimination. We stay because of their professionalism and quality work but even more so for both Amanda (who sets our appointments) and Jimmy (our technician). Both pay attention to every detail are honestly super pleasant and just plain nice to talk to, always ask about our family, and have caring demeanors. We appreciate this from someone who comes into our home. They’ve set the bar high for other companies sending technicians.


  • Jim ATG     5 star

We all make mistakes and/or have miscommunications, it isn't until these things like this happen do we see the integrity of a company or a person. The owner of this company has great integrity and is dedicated to providing great customer service and reliable service. As a business owner myself I know sometimes people that work for us may make mistakes or fall short and in these times, we have a chance to shine, the owner of this company definitely did so in our experience. I would recommend them to anybody needing service because they will always do right by their customers and the service tech that serviced us was knowledgeable and did a great job!


  • Pat Casey     5 star

  • Arif Ashfaq     5 star

Positive: Punctuality, Quality, Responsiveness, Value

Probably the best pest control company in this area -I am the owner of three restaurants and need to ensure that we do not have issues - we have zero issues - the first service is intense, and an entire team comes in and spends about 4 to 6 hours with detailed work - after that, it is monthly - the crew is excellent, knowledgeable, professional, punctual and courteous. Please call Steve and his team to help you work on your business or home needs.


  • David Estes     5 star

I recommend Bugman for any residence or business looking for pest control service. The office staff is prompt and knowledgeable, and the field staff is always friendly and keen on finding solutions. We used them for a termite bond and mosquito treatment, both services were highly effective!


  • Jason McDuff     5 star

Just wow! Bugman is great. I can see why they have been in business for 40 years now. The services were knowledgeable to me. I had questions and the tech(Derek)was able to give me a detailed answer. I wish I could give them more than 5 stars.

I can’t say enough about this company. My family and I recommend them to everyone we know. The staff is knowledgeable, friendly, efficient, and always willing to help. We had a situation come up where the yard needed to be sprayed and they were there the very next day!!! Thank you, Bugman! Y’all are by far the best around!!!
