Drake Lawn and Pest Control Review


Our Overall Rating (3.8)

Company Review

Drake Lawn and Pest Control has been in business for more than 16 years. It is owned and operated by two men who have nearly 50 years of combined experience in the Orlando Pest Control Industry.

The office, located at 1584 College Park Business Center Road, Orlando, FL, serves the city of Orlando and counties throughout central and northeast Florida.

The company offers both residential and commercial pest control as well as subterranean and dry wood termite control. It also offers lawn care, irrigation services, and wildlife management.

Not only will the specialists take care of everyday pests such as mosquitoes and ants, but they will also help you manage occasional invaders such as bed bugs, raccoons, squirrels, and rodents.

Drake offers two features that are sure to make any homeowner happy.

The first is a pest control money-back guarantee. Drake promises to protect your home from general household pests and will provide any necessary retreatments at no additional cost. If Drake hasn’t eliminated all of your pests within 30 days of its first service, it will refund 100% of your money.

It also offers a nice deal with its termite protection services. Drake provides protection for the life of your home, including transfer of ownership, against subterranean termites. It will also treat your home every 10 years at no cost above your renewal fee.

The company strives to provide the highest quality pest control service in the industry and puts a continual emphasis on employee training through weekly meetings, field training, and recertification through the state of Florida.

Although the company has received great reviews for its pest control services, it received quite a few complaints about its lawn care service.

Several customers have complained about weeds in their lawn as well as divets and brown patches in the sod the company placed. Additionally, some homeowners have said that when they notice a problem, it can take several days and occasionally more than a week to get a specialist to look at the problem.

Other customers say it is hard to get someone on the phone to talk about services or fees. Drake has a two-star rating on Yelp out of 20 reviews and a 4.8-star rating on Google out of 626 reviews. The company also has an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau. 

Pricing for the company is fairly reasonable. It offers free inspections and although prices depend on what services you will need, past customers have paid about $150.

Drake continuously searches for the safest and most effective approach to pest control to ensure that your family isn’t affected by any chemicals. It often uses Termidor, which spreads from ant to ant by contact. This typically controls the problem within a week of treatment.

Overall, Drake Lawn and Pest Control has some great benefits when it comes to pest control services for both residential and commercial properties, but it has a lackluster lawn care service and occasionally hard-to-reach employees.
