Our Overall Rating (4.2)

Company Review

Peerless Pest Control is a family-owned and operated pest management company. It was established in 1951 in Philadelphia and began as a small outfit selling insecticides dubbed RO-TOX. As demand increased, it opened its first store and later expanded its services to include pest extermination. Currently, there are offices in North Philadelphia and West Philadelphia.

It offers comprehensive pest control services treating pests such as cockroaches, ants, mice, rats, squirrels, stink bugs, centipedes, silverfish, termites, beetles, bed bugs, groundhogs, fleas, pantry pests, moths, birds, skunks, opossum, bats, and snakes.

What’s remarkable about Peerless Pest Control is how experienced it is. As one of Philadelphia’s oldest pest control companies, it has earned a reputation for providing reliable pest control services. Its almost seven decades in business have afforded it a veteran vantage point to know what works, what to avoid, and how to hone its pest control services to the high standard it has today. It has a 4.0 rating on Google reviews and a 2-star Yelp review.

Its technicians are highly trained, industry veterans with an average experience of 14 years. They are heavily vetted, licensed, and undergo continuous training to stay up-to-date with current industry trends. Unlike competitors, Peerless Pest Control doesn’t limit the number of supplies each technician uses and are allowed to use discretion to determine how much they need to treat your pest problem effectively. This reduces the chances of pest recurrence.

Peerless Pest Control offers flexible service plans to suit your unique needs and situations. Depending on the extent of your pest problem, you can choose from one-time, bi-weekly, monthly, bi-monthly, and quarterly service plans. It doesn’t have fixed prices as it believes that there’s no one-size-fits-all solution.

It also provides free on-site estimates. The size and type of your home, environment, and pest problem will determine how much you’ll be charged. After considering all these, Peerless Pest Control will develop a customized plan and provide you with an accurate quote. Most customers report that the prices they were charged were very reasonable for the amount of work done. However, some complained of being overcharged for rat traps and bait.

Peerless Pest Control is committed to the safety of your family and pets. It adheres to EPA safety guidelines and only uses the safest treatment methods to have the least impact on the environment and your home while still being effective. The technicians take extra care to ensure your children and pets aren’t exposed to any hazardous chemicals.

Overall, Peerless Pest Control is a good pest control firm with varied treatment plans and only minor customer service issues.
