Schendel Pest Services Review


Our Overall Rating (5)

Company Review

With more than 70 years in the industry under its belt, Schendel Pest Services is one of the most highly touted in the Topeka area. Its home base is located at 1035 SE Quincy Street, Topeka, KS 66612. Over the years, it has expanded its Kansas service areas to include Kansas City, Lawrence, Lenexa, Wichita, and Tulsa and added offices in Arizona, Missouri, Oklahoma, and Arkansas. If you’re in any of these areas, Schendel Pest is available for your pest issues.

Schendel Pest Control covers both residential and commercial properties for all manner of pests including:

  • Bed bugs
  • Termites
  • Roaches
  • Fleas
  • Silverfish
  • Ants
  • Spiders
  • Moles
  • Mice
  • Mosquitoes
  • Birds

The pest control programs offered by Schendel Pest Control include Premium Care and Premium Care Plus. Both include year-round pest protection, quarterly visits, stinging insects and web removal, and the PestZero Guarantee. However, the Premium Care Plus program also includes termite control. 

The first inspection is free. Upon completion, you’ll have a better understanding of how deep the infestation goes and what it will take to eliminate it. The technicians are trained and certified, giving them the knowledge and experience necessary to detect even the smallest of trouble spots. The company’s on-site entomologists oversee all technical applications to ensure quality and safety.

The technicians’ approach to eradicating bed bug infestations is particularly beneficial. They use specially trained dogs to find infestations in homes, hotels, apartments, or businesses. The canines are able to sniff out live bugs, eggs, and nymphs. Once the dogs have done their job, a heat treatment is used to eliminate bugs, eggs, and nymphs without the use of poisons.

The PestZero Guarantee is another big perk. Knowing that Schendel Pest Control stands behind its work imparts peace of mind that is priceless. The company understands that nothing is more irritating or embarrassing than a pest problem, and it will guarantee that its technicians’ work will leave you pest-free.

A unique addition to Schendel’s services is pest control insulation. This insulation not only saves money on energy but also protects the home from pests such as silverfish.

Customer reviews show repeated claims of how highly efficient and polite Schendel Pest Control staff and technicians perform in the Topeka, Kansas service area. The company is accredited by the Better Business Bureau with a B+ rating and was also rated number 42 in the top 100 pest control companies in PCT Magazine in 2012.

In 2012, Schendel Pest Control was purchased by one of the largest pest control companies in North America. Some reviews state the quality of personal service declined at that time. Another periodic trend in reviews is scheduling or missed appointment issues.

The bottom line is this is a company you can trust. While the change in hands to a more corporate structure seems to have shaken up its customer service, the majority of reviews still point to quality service and a solid guarantee.
