Company Review

Romney Pest Control is a pest management company located at 904 S Mill St. Lewisville, Texas, 75057.   It was founded in 2002 by Greg Romney and services the San Antonio, Houston, Dallas, and Fort Worth areas.

Romney offers both residential and commercial pest control.  It has service plans for ants, centipedes, beetles, cockroaches, fleas, millipedes, mosquitos, mice, rats, scorpions, silverfish, spiders, bees, wasps, ticks, and termites.  As termite problems are common occurrences in Texas, Romney specializes in preventative termite treatments using the Sentricon Baiting System. They also provide full treatment for existing infestations.

The owner of Romney Pest Control claims what sets it apart from other pest control companies is its perfect size to be community-oriented.  He claims with most pest management companies you have to choose between a big box that doesn’t care about their customers, or a technician working with inadequate equipment. He says that Romney is the perfect size where they can meet the needs of a large service area in Texas, offer unparalleled expertise and technology, but still be small enough to be part of the community.  The company claims that this community-driven mindset drives their excellent customer service.

Do the reviews of Romney Pest Control agree with their claims about their service?  Largely, it seems that they very much do.  Romney is very well rated across multiple platforms.  Individual reviewers write about longtime service with Romney, excellent customer service, and efficient and skilled technicians.  Dozens of Romney technicians are mentioned specifically by name as going above and beyond for customers.  Several customers mention how impressively Romney’s termite prevention treatments have worked over years.  Many reviews talk about dedicated technicians scheduling off-hours trips for treatments or emergencies to accommodate customer schedules. Almost every review discusses how helpful their technicians were with any questions they had.

There are some troubling negative reviews, however.  A recurring trend in the reviews is potential customers’ not approving of Romney’s sales practices. Many reviews say that Romney sales people came to their doors even with no soliciting or quarantine signs up.  Several reviewers talk about pushy salesmen not taking no for an answer.  Many are upset at the fine print in Romney’s contract.  All of Romney’s treatment plans are annual plans paid on a monthly basis.  Many comments from reviewers claim they were misled that there was a one-time fee for initial treatment, only to find that they had a contract for a year. There is also an 80% fee for early cancellation.  Several reviews also make complaints on office staff being rude or unreachable over the phone.

The reviews are fairly divided on Romney Pest Control.  Though reviewers leave some negative marks, there are also many positive experiences listed.  For every review about bad sales experiences, however, there seem to be five reviews about how many customers love their technician.  The reviews do slant very clearly towards the positive, with a key takeaway being that Romney has skilled and professional technicians that customers overwhelmingly approve of while still having some issues in sales and reception.  Romney has received the Super Service Award from Angie’s List every year since 2013.
