Adaptive Pest Control, Inc. Review

Our Overall Rating (3.8)

Company Review

Adaptive Pest Control, Inc. was founded in 1997 by Jeff Russell and remains a strong, family-owned-and-operated company. It serves Sonoma, California, and the cities surrounding it in Marin County. The company has been licensed by the state of California and is devoted to providing specialized services to all customers to help with their specific needs. 

It will take care of wasps, bees, ants, spiders, cockroaches, fleas, pill bugs, and rats or other rodents. The main treatment seems to consist of traps for rodents or spray for bugs, but there is no clear information on what exactly those treatments entail. Adaptive Pest Control serves both businesses and residences in the area. 

Customers were either really happy with Adaptive Pest Control or quite upset. Many customers were pleased with Jeff’s friendliness and efficiency. They claimed that he came to their home right away, completed a thorough inspection, and provided effective and quick service at a reasonable price. On the other hand, a few reviewers were upset by the prices as it appears that service is about $200 a month. One consideration is that many reviewers on Yelp mentioned that poor reviews were actually supposed to be for another company with a similar name, which means that the ratings are likely unreliable. This fact brings its 2.5 stars on Yelp into question. Overall, those who worked with Jeff seemed to be happy with his services and his professional, friendly demeanor. 

There is no clear price range on its website. One reviewer mentioned $85 for an initial consultation and $225 for monthly treatments. Some reviewers found prices to be very reasonable. Adaptive Pest Control does have regular specials, according to its website.

Many reviews mentioned how quickly Jeff came to perform a treatment and that his services were quite effective. There were no specifics on what kind of treatment Adaptive Pest Control uses nor on whether it is eco-friendly or safe for pets and children. However, the website emphasizes that Jeff will work with his customers to provide a customized treatment plan specifically to meet their needs whatever they may be. 

Overall, Adaptive Pest Control seems to be a small but effective company. With few reviews and many mentioning a company with a similar name in another state, it is difficult to gather complete information. Most customers who mention the owner, Jeff, are pleased with the service he provides and his personality. The prices do seem a bit high and the service area is small. It appears to provide private, family-friendly service that usually leaves customers pleased.
