Company Review

Hydrex Pest Control, a family-run business, has been providing pest management services throughout the state of California since 1946.

It has numerous locations throughout California, offering residential and commercial services in almost 2,000 areas including San Jose, San Diego, Los Angeles, and Sacramento. Its goal is to utilize the latest technology to mitigate some of California’s worst pest challenges.

It offers treatment of different types of pests and wildlife that invade California businesses and homes, including ants, spiders, stinging insects, and cockroaches.

It also offers specialized treatments such as nuisance bird control, bed bug and termite control, rodent control, and bee elimination. Additionally, it provides perimeter and boundary treatments alongside interior treatment and consistent maintenance.

Two attributes stood out in the process of a review with Hydrex.

The first attribute is its ability to treat subterranean, damp wood, and dry wood termites with advanced technology tools that spot, target, and eliminate the irritating invaders. After eradication, it proceeds to repairing or replacing the termite dry rot to avoid subsequent infestations.

The second attribute is the eco-friendly methods of treating bed bugs. The company has the best bed bug treatments in the industry that are more effective than toxic and time-wasting fumigation methods.

Its employees are highly trained and certified. Employees use state-of-the-art techniques and materials that meet all your needs. Its goal is to offer outstanding services and always work hard to maintain trust with its clients. Unlike other companies, Hydrex Pest Control gives top-notch services to all its customers.

Even so, it has a downside, and it’s a big one.

Several customers have complained about their pest problems not taken care of and feel the charges were too high for a non-effective job. Others claim that after rodent elimination, the technicians don’t take time to repair the holes through which the rodents access the house, leaving the problem worse than it was.

It is somehow worrying that Hydrex Pest Control has a three and a half star rating on yelp. But, since Hydrex businesses are franchised, reviews fluctuate from one location to another. The employees’ professionalism and charges are also inconsistent. Business locations with negative reviews need to improve their customer service to avoid pulling others down.

Its charges are fair. It offers free estimates to potential clients at every franchise location. However, prices may vary depending on the clients’ location, infestation type, and compound size. These differences make it difficult to compare prices. To keep costs down in all places, Hydrex offers free initial inspections to new customers at particular franchise locations and discount coupons at others.

When it comes to the products used, it utilizes Reduced Impact Services that are less toxic and odoriferous and are used in small volumes, unlike traditional pesticides. It also has options to use organic pest control methods that require no pesticides.

Before any treatment, talk to your technician about the safety of your family and pets. However, most experts ought to take you through the entire process before taking action.

Various treatment and service options, focus on quality service to its customers, and expansive coverage area make Hydrex Pest Control a sound choice in pest and insect control.
