Nelson’s Pest Control, Inc. Review

Our Overall Rating (4)

Company Review

Nelson’s Pest Control, Inc., was founded in 1990. It was started by Dave Nelson, a man passionate about lawn service who has been involved in pest extermination since his middle school days. Today, his company operates all over the Tampa Bay area of Florida, including cities like New Port Richey, Holiday, Spring Field, Palm Harbor, Clearwater, and Redington Beach. The address for its main office is 7940 Rutillio Ct, New Port Richey, Florida 34653. 

Nelson’s Pest Control treats all kinds of insects, including those specific to Florida’s hot and humid environment. These include bees such as Africanized honey bees and yellow jackets, any rats and rodents, and carpenter ants. Nelson’s also treats typical pests such as ticks, fleas, roaches, and bed bugs. It also provides lawn services, which have been a big hit among reviewers. The company offers both one-time treatments and quarterly plans for residential and commercial buildings. 

According to customer reviews, the staff is very friendly and efficient. Most reviewers were also very impressed with the lawn services, although a few mentioned that their grass was looking poor after treatment. Interestingly, Nelson’s responded to most negative reviews with long and substantive replies explaining why the customers experienced lawn issues. In these cases, while the treatment may not have been entirely successful, Nelson’s did prove its expertise and understanding of the situation. There is no specific information on the kind of treatments used, but customers generally saw good results and claimed that the treatment was completed quickly and efficiently. 

A few prices were mentioned in reviews. It appears from the most recent statements that Nelson’s charges $250 for a one-time treatment, $89 for a rodent inspection, and $76 a month for the quarterly plan. These are estimates, as it appears that Mr. Nelson recently retired and gave his company over to another owner, who slightly increased prices. Overall, customers seemed happy with the prices and claimed that the company’s prices were affordable compared to some other businesses in the area. 

Almost all customers truly appreciated the efficient and kind staff at Nelson’s Pest Control. The reviewers were nearly always pleased with the customer service, efficient and quick response times, and helpful, honest, and knowledgeable technicians. They mentioned that Nelson’s staff were great about showing them what they needed to do to care for their lawn in between inspections as well, which was quite helpful. 

Overall, Nelson’s Pest Control seems to be a quick, efficient, and successful pest control and lawn care company. With a few communication issues and recent price increases with the change in management, it has suffered some bad reviews but seems to be an altogether good company with great people.
