Company Review

Trad’s Pest Control is a family-owned pest control company established in 1971 in Jacksonville, Florida. Fifty years later, the company is still owned and operated by the family in Jacksonville. It has since expanded its service area to include Ponte Vedra, Orange Park, Atlantic Beach, Switzerland, Neptune Beach, Nocatee, and St. John. 

Trad’s has maintained its original values of honesty, hard work, and commitment to service by providing its customers with exceptional service through the years. It is QualityPro certified, GI-BMP certified, and A+ rated by BBB. 

Trad’s specializes in providing pest control and lawn services. Its pest control service targets cockroaches, carpenter ants, spiders, centipedes, mice, silverfish, fire ants, earwigs, millipedes, rats, termites, fleas, wasps, and mosquitoes. The lawn service includes fertilization, treatment for broadleaf weeds and crabgrass, disease prevention, and tree and shrub care. 

Trad’s Pest Control technicians go through extensive hands-on and classroom training to ensure they are up-to-date with current industry standards. When you schedule a pest control service, you get a free inspection to assess the extent of your pest problem. The technicians then apply initial treatments to the exterior and interior of your home to eradicate pests. 

What we loved about Trad’s Pest Control are its eco-friendly treatments. It has a range of treatment options targeting different pests, but what cuts across the board is that all treatments are designed to do the least damage while still being highly effective. It practices Integrated Pest Management, which means that its techniques are low-risk and minimally impactful to the environment. The technicians are also careful when applying treatments to protect your children and pets from exposure. 

Its termite service is thorough and uses various treatments to exterminate these pests from your home. The technicians use eco-friendly liquid treatments such as Termidor and Altriset and a technology system to bait and eradicate the termites. The Sentricon Colony Elimination System is the best at eliminating termite colonies. 

Trad’s Pest Control’s lawn service is comprehensive. It offers a same-day, no-contract option to make it as convenient as possible for you. It uses EPA-approved solutions and products to protect your lawn from insect attacks, diseases, and weeds. It also uses organic pesticides to prevent chinch bugs, sod webworms, armyworms, and mole crickets. This service comes with six scheduled treatments every two months and retreatments as needed.  

Customer convenience is clearly important to Trad’s Pest Control. Apart from the same-day services, it also has a Saturday service that makes it easy for you to be present during treatment. Its billing system is also built on convenience. You can book its services online and get your bill monthly. Its pricing is reasonable, with the basic pest control service starting at $30/month, quarterly service at $35/month, and complete quarterly at $45/month. All plans come with free retreatment guarantees and free inspections. 

Trad’s Pest Control is customer-centric. Most of its customers are happy with its service and were impressed by how helpful and knowledgeable the staff was, from the owners and field technicians to the company’s support staff. Customer service is responsive and always willing to go the extra mile. They return your call if they missed it, and the technicians are always punctual. However, there are a few complaints from lawn service customers saying that their lawn issues were not solved by Trad’s technicians. 

Overall, Trad’s Pest Control is a great pest control company. It needs to streamline its lawn service to bring it to the high standard its pest control service is.
