Rise Pest Control Review

Our Overall Rating (4)

Company Review

Rise Pest Control was founded in 2017 and serves a number of Midwest cities, including Des Moines, Iowa, and its neighboring communities. In Iowa, the company’s main headquarters is located at 3905 Southeast Grimes Boulevard Suite E, Grimes, Iowa 50111.

After years of working in the pest control industry, the owners of Rise saw an opportunity to improve upon the methods employed by most pest control companies. Instead of pushing more pesticides, they chose to focus on proper pesticide placement, which in turn allowed their technicians to limit where and how often they apply the product.

Using pet- and eco-friendly methods, Rise Pest Control exterminates and protects your residential or commercial property against spiders, beetles, cockroaches, mice, June bugs, centipedes, ants, and a number of other pests.

Once you receive a free quote, the company will send a technician to your home or business to carry out a thorough inspection. The information collected during the initial assessment allows the technician to generate a pest extermination and management plan geared specifically toward the pest or pests invading your property.

When you sign a pest management contract, Rise will use its specialized six-step pest control process to defend your home. This includes removing cobwebs and nests, closing up cracks and crevices, applying a water-resistant solution, putting down a granular barrier, spot treating inside your home, and then following up quarterly to repeat the entire process.

As I was reviewing Rise Pest Control, I was pleased to find that its technicians use an organic, eco-friendly solution to spot treat inside your home. This allows families and their pets to remain in their residence while the technician is applying the solution.

Another feature that helps Rise Pest Control stand out is its free spot treatments in between quarterly pest management services. If you catch a glimpse of a pest inside your house after a quarterly visit, all you need to do is call the company and it will send out a technician to deal with your pest problem.

As far as pricing goes, it appears the cost is not disclosed until you contact the company for a free quote, or its inspectors visit your property to assess your pest control needs.

While Rise Pest Control has plenty of satisfied customers applauding its professionalism, punctuality, and communication skills, the company also has a number of unhappy customers complaining about its service. The biggest reoccurring complaint involves Rise refusing to cancel pest management contracts over the phone or via email. Instead, it requires its customers to send a certified letter to its corporate office in Utah. Dishonesty regarding hidden cancellation fees is another issue former customers have had with the company.

Negative reviews aside, Rise Pest Control has an A rating with the Better Business Bureau, a 4.9-star rating with Google, and a 3-star rating on Yelp.

Although Rise has some questionable practices when it comes to canceling pest management contracts, customers feel the company provides dependable pest extermination and control services overall.
