Good Earth Pest Control is a pest management company located at 29030 Hwy 34, Corvallis, Oregon, 97333. It is a family-operated business established by Richard and Rene Kesecker in 1989 and still operated by the couple along with their sons. The company serves the Willamette Valley area and has many clients as far north as the Corvallis area and Portland and as far south as Eugene.
Good Earth Pest Control offers comprehensive pest control for nearly any pest in the area for both commercial and residential clients. It also offers a wildlife removal and exclusion service for safe live trapping and relocating of wildlife inside a client’s home, worksite, or property. Individual pests that it routinely treats are ants, spiders, hornets, wasps, fleas, cockroaches, rats, mice, and bed bugs as well as bird and wildlife infestations.
The company offers clients several treatment plans with an initial setup cost followed by a cost per service. Its annual contracts for treatment are advertised as no-fee cancellation agreements, and reviews indicate that this is true. The initial startup cost pricing model does however require an initial investment, so a cancellation fee is replaced by the potential cost of forfeiture of a startup fee. The company’s treatment methods are focused on eco-friendly chemical use and humane exclusion and removal. It offers free inspections and assessments as well.
The National Pest Management Association has certified Good Earth Pest Control as Quality Pro, one of the leading accreditations for excellence in the industry. It has an A+ Better Business Bureau rating, a 4.8/5 Google rating, a 4.9/5 Facebook rating, and a 4.5/5 Yelp rating. Individual reviews are overwhelmingly positive with occurrences of negative reviews being immediately addressed and rectified by management.
Looking at over a decade of reviews, customers certainly seem to agree that Good Earth Pest Control’s customer service is excellent. Numerous reviews are very outspoken about both the office staff and technicians being incredibly knowledgeable and helpful. Several reviews indicate that the technicians went above and beyond for customers without charging additional fees. Reviewers nearly universally praise their punctuality and prompt scheduling. The professionalism of the company’s technicians is also consistently praised, as are the continued results by reviewers who have consistently used the company’s services over the years.
The negative reviews on this company are few, despite having hundreds of reviews across all platforms. There are, however, a few very critical reviews. One review mentions that a technician was very dismissive of his worries about the effectiveness and that the technician got aggressive and defensive with him. Another reviewer says that despite a more expensive service than competitors, no progress was made on their pest problems at all in several routine quarterly treatments. In both cases of negative reviews, management immediately commented and seems to have rectified the situation — in one case going out personally to re-service for free.
In the case of Good Earth Pest Control, the positive reviews vastly outnumber the bad. Even the best reviews do agree that Good Earth Pest Control is slightly more expensive than competitors, but also tend to agree that the excess cost is worth it. The few negative reviews seem to be addressed very quickly and efficiently by management. It seems from a long track record of very positive reviews that a potential customer of Good Earth Pest Control can assume they are getting quality service with consistency and professionalism.
