White Knight Pest Control has been servicing Texas, Utah, Arizona, and Colorado since 2006. Unlike many pest control companies, they focus on pest extermination for residential and commercial customers. Most similar companies dip into moisture control or real estate inspections as well.
They handle pests such as ants, bed bugs, mosquitoes, termites, earwigs, ticks, fleas, spiders, scorpions, and roaches and will also come up with a specialized treatment if you have some unusual bugs. Another nice touch.
This company offers three pest control plans. Customers with serious pest infestations usually go for the monthly or bi-monthly plans to get the most extermination power for their dollar. For those with less problematic issues, the quarterly plan is probably best.
All the pest protection plans offered by White Knight Pest Control begin with a free home inspection and estimate and end with a service guarantee to return if the pests do. All plans are done in an eight-step process.
- Sweep webs and wasp nests from eaves
- Apply weep hole injections
- Apply yard granulation
- Treat foundation, eaves, and yard
- Treat baseboards and plumbing
- Treat attic and garage
- Continued use of Integrated Pest Management
Since windows and doors are entryways for bugs too, White Knight technicians give entrances extra protection. They also treat the eaves of the home and other structures with a product to deter pests such as spiders, bees, and wasps.
According to their website, it puts an emphasis on employee happiness, which they feel improves the customer experience. All employees are trained and educated in pest management techniques, including integrated pest management which concentrates more on prevention than poison.
Reviews on Yelp and Google regularly mention the expertise of the staff and their commitment to going above and beyond the call of duty. Always a good quality in an exterminator.
Fire ants, German cockroaches, mosquitoes, termites, flies, and wildlife control are all considered additional services. They have an extra charge in addition to the common pests included in the three basic plans. While this could make some folks skeptical, most reviews claim pricing is affordable on all plans.
There are several negative reviews on Yelp which point to pushy sales tactics from door-to-door salesmen. Several other negative reviews all point out a lack of efficiency when it comes to spider treatment.
Thirty days after the initial pest treatment by White Knights, a technician will schedule the first maintenance treatment. Maintenance is provided every 30, 60, or 90 days afterward, depending on the plan.
The service guarantee states that if bugs are still present 10 days after the initial treatment, they will return within a two-day time. They caution customers not to panic if they still see some bugs. Bugs can appear for up to 10 days as they leave their nesting places.
The bottom line is that this company has a good track record with common pest problems, but you may want to do more research if you have spiders. Contracts, plans, and agreements from White Knight should also be read through completely before signing.
