Excellent service, 2/26/2015

I would highly recommend Rid-A-Critter if you have issues with squirrels in your attic. They show up when they say they will and do a great job of getting rid of your unwanted guests.


Professionalism and excellent customer service, 2/19/2015

Having a critter is never something that you want to experience. Waking up to that scratching noise in your bedroom is truly frightening. However, once you call them they handle the problem. ... Quickly and with extreme professionalism. In addition, they continue to follow up and watch your property to ensure that all critters have been removed. Not just a one time and they're done. I hope I never have to use them again but I would recommend their services to anyone. And will definitely use them again if I am unfortunate enough to get another critter:)

got great feedback, expectations exceeded

Due to a communication glitch, the company could not get hold of our request; after they did, we were contacted immediately, and we had an oustanding assistance, just like the first time we called them.

Great service... a friend in the industry

I have an office building in East Atlanta. Our building is 25 years old, and poorly built. I met David our technician about a year ago after I was surprised by two squirrels running past me as I opened up my front door on Monday morning!!! I called, and the problem was solved immediately. I have called at least 5 times for different issues. Rid A Critter has always been prompt, courteous and honest. I also have a service contract for the pest control in my building. I appreciate all the hard work this company has done for me, and I would recommended them to anyone!

Great, Professional Job

Chris Collender identified carpenter bee damage around my home, showed me the problem, explained the process, then did the work quickly and efficiently. I am very satisfied with his work.

Rip Off

I had Rid-a-Critter come out to my house to inspect for rodents. The technician was here for 10 mins and hand me a $3000+ quote to seal "lots of holes" and set traps for 2 weeks to catch our "massive" rodent infestation. Cinical - I sent him on his way the next day I had 2 pest control and 2 contracting companies come to my house and inspect the property. Both of the pest control companies said that the issue is minor and that there are not any holes in my attic but in fact the whole is on the outside near the AC unit. The contracting companies confirmed this fact. I decided to have the contracting company fill the holes that day. They charged me $250. Then I had the pest control company come out and set traps and spray for 28 different types of pests. They charge $135 with an quarterlly fee of $89. Rid-A-Citter is a rip off and you should avoid them at all costs.

That is an interesting review. Ridacritter has been in business for 10 years and maintains an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau. If we were crooks we would not be in business that long and we would not have an A+ rating. Please email me at Richard@ridacritter.com with your name and address. I would love to have a supervisor come check behind the tech that came out to your house to ensure we are quoting accurately. Also, when I have your address I can confirm how long the tech was at your residence by looking at our GPS truck tracking service. It would shock me if he was there for “10 minutes” only. Without seeing our quote and seeing the competitors quote I can only assume you are not comparing apples to apples. Sounds to me like you only paid to have a “primary” entry area sealed while leaving many other places open for rodents to get into the structure. We generally quote on what it would take to solve a problem long term, not apply a temporary band aid to the problem. It amazes me how people can publicly complain about something that was given to them for “free” (our quote). If this is indeed a legitimate review and not a rival competitor, please email me so I can see how long the tech was there and have a supervisor check the quote for accuracy.
Regards,
Richard Adcock - President

Excellent From Start to Finnish

Chris Collender was our tech and he's the best. This was our fourth company over a seven year period(the rest were out of business during their warranty period)and failed to seal the attic, all at considerable expense. Adcock's was cheaper than all 3 previous and we have no squirels now since last Sep.

Excellent service

We are considering to seal the house from rats, bats etc and talked with different companies. Adcock's personnel came on time, explained everything clearly and suggested solution that we agreed. Terri S. sealed our house and he was always nice and explained everything. He came several times since I have some areas that are difficult to reach. Thanks Adcock....

10 STAR JOB

We had a mice, rat and squirrel problem in a building on our campus. Jason Arruda came out gave us a great esitmate and began the work the next day! He and his partner spent the whole day sealing up the building and setting traps. They did a superb job. They were very maticulous in finding and sealing all the holes. Jason went over the whole job with me and set the traps. The next day he was back to check the traps and we caught 8. He disposed of them and re-set. I called him the next day and he was back again to get rid of more. We are extremely pleased with the excellent work he has done. He treated us and our building like we were his family and it was his house. He is the best technician of any trade I have ever worked with. Thank you for sending Jason out to us and we will highly recommend Jason Arruda and Rid-a-Critter to everyone!!!!

Pleasant and Professional

Two days ago I heard what sounded like a squirrel or rat in a wall in my house. I had Adcock's Inspect and Seal my house in August of 2009 and my experience with them was very good so I gave them a call. I was told that the technician would call me back within a few hours but I did not hear that day. I called again the next morning and within a half hour I had a call from Tim McDavid, the tech who had come out before. Tim said he would try to come out to my area today and would give me a call with 30 minutes so I could get home from work. I received a call in the early afternoon and Tim arrived soon thereafter. Tim was very pleasant and professional. He did a very complete inspection but did not find any entry points. He offered to leave traps that they would come back and check. But I declined as I'm hoping the critter will not return. He was not at all pushy and gave balanced advice as to my options. There was no charge for the visit which is amazing in this day and age. This company really cares about value and customer service. I would highly recommend Adcock's Rid-A-Critter.

Evicting the Tenants that were NOT paying rent!!

Let me start by saying that I've already recommended Rid-A-Critter's Chris Collender to two neighbors! Something had taken up residence in our attic and, based on reviews on this site, we called Rid-A-Critter. Chris called immediately and came to investigate. He found that we had rats. He was not only responsive and professional throughout the whole job, but he was very good at calming down the very ANXIOUS homeowners. He eliminated the rats and sealed up the house, and we could not be more pleased. Thank you Chris!!

The Best Pest Control Service Period!!!

I have used about every pest control service in the business and have gone through excuses, turnover etc. as to why they could not take care of my pest problems. Then I discovered Rid-A-Critter and Cherie. Cherie is the absolute best and most knowledgeable pest control technician that I have ever met. Her customer service and follow up is by far superior against other companies that I have used in the past. Anytime that I call Cherie, she makes it a priority to come diagnose my problem. I would highly recommend Cherie and Rid-A-Critter to anyone who is in need of a quality pest control service. JB

Adcock's Rid-A-Critter is Awesome!

After being told by a large local pest control company our bee problem could not be handled by them we called Adcock's Rid-A-Critter. Not only did they resolve our minor wasp problem they now provide us with exceptional monthly pest control service! Cherie is fabulous; she is prompt and courteous to our staff and extremely polite and accommodating to our tenants. Above all she is not at all afraid of getting in there and getting the job done. Thanks for the best service ever.

Ant Problems

Experienced Ant problems last summer here in Newnan. Called frantic Rid-a-Critter for help. Received promt visit, evaluation and solution to my problem. Had Cherie comming to my home ever since.
