I get mosquitos sprayed, carpenter bees, termite and regular pest control from Dave and Eric. I have referred all my friends and family to Dave. We all are very pleased with all his services. He has animal proofed my sister's and my mother's houses. Great customers service.

I can honestly say Crocodile Dave has been the ONLY vendor who has done an outstanding job at my home. The roof was in such poor condition when I purchased the house rodents were accessing the attic and moved to the basement when insulation was installed. I contacted Crocodile Dave and spoke with the owner who came out to inspect the residence and provide a detailed action plan which included photographs and a walk-a-round to show me the problems. All of the employees were professional, courteous and skilled in a number of different construction disciplines. Work required at my house was extensive due to issues with the roof and original construction faults. Each repair was thoroughly explained and the work was executed perfectly and with an aesthetically pleasing end result. All exclusion work looks like it was original to the house. All construction debris was cleaned up spotlessly afterward. Staff went above and beyond, even going out of their way to build a new door to afford easier access to the crawlspace. This is the only group doing repairs at my home who have been honest, straight forward and had integrity. I wish I could hire Crocodile Dave for ALL my repairs. This is an outstanding company I have recommended and will continue to recommend.

Everyone knows that getting work done on one's house can be a big headache and does not always work out as you would wish. NOT the case with Crocodile Dave! I was so thankful that I had been referred to Crocodile Dave! From the very beginning, Joanne in the office was extremely helpful and courteous and patiently answered all my questions. Then when Crocodile Dave came out, I knew I had definitely found the right company! Crocodile Dave did an inspection and explained (with pictures!) in depth to me exactly what needed to be done to rid my attic of rats and what had to be done to permanently keep them out. He took a long time to answer all my questions and never rushed me. He made me feel like he would treat my house as if it were his own. Then today Gary came out and COULD NOT HAVE BEEN NICER! He worked VERY hard to make sure all possible entry places were taken care of and was extremely thorough. He took the time to answer any questions I had and went over all the work he had done with me. He is a wonderful asset to the company! I do not anticipate any more rat or other critter problems, but I am 100% confident that if a problem comes up that Crocodile Dave will honor the 5 yr. warranty! I am very cautious about recommending companies to my friends, but I can honestly with no hesitation say that if you want a job well done at a reasonable price (worth every penny for peace of mind) call Crocodile Dave! I will gladly pass his name/number on. A Big Thank You!!

I bought an older home with existing rodent damage and a roof rat freeway to the attic. Dave came out quickly when I called and provided a detailed line-item estimate, with over 50 photos of problem areas. His crew was prompt and were meticulous in their cleanup - they even blew sawdust off my driveway when they were done! I liked that his company approached things from a construction viewpoint instead of a pest control viewpoint. Also, as a female homeowner, I appreciate that I wasn't talked down to in the least. They patched various holes in my crawlspace and caulked the entire perimeter of my house where the frieze board had expanded. They matched paint to the exterior and painted over the repairs. They even pulled off the screened porch roof and fixed holes hidden in the rafters. Are they expensive? I think I got an excellent value. When my mom asked how much I was spending for "rat removal" and I told her, she said, "I can't believe you're paying that much!" Then after I was finished explaining everything they had done, she said, "I can't believe you got all that work for that price!" I know one of the rat entrances was a hole to the crawlspace left by my first drywall contractor, so I appreciate that Dave wants to come back out and re-inspect my place after I get more work done, to ensure no one has made a new path for rats. It's been a year and I've been rat-free, and all repairs have held up well. I recommend this company for their humane common-sense approach.

Crocodile Dave was quick in responding to my problem of critters in my chimney. I thought they were bats but he was able to determine that it was only chimney swifts. I saw them fly out the roof and then he capped it.

The moment I knew we had an opossum at home, I had to call someone to take it out. I gave Crocodile Dave a call and wanted to see if they could get the opossum out. Well what do you know, the team handled the problem extremely well - and very fast too! And what I liked most was that they did not need to hurt the opossum to get it out. The trapping device didn't harm the animal at all.

We had rats in our home and had Dave "rat proof" with wire mesh at roof line, plugging holes into crawlspace and into house from plumbing, etc. They are very professional and did the work at a fair price. A rat had actually gotten into the house and was hiding in the chimney and Dave responded same day to trap it and take it away. My neighbor had used Dave and recommended him to me and I am very satisfied.

Great folks to work with. Dave was very professional and explained everything, even took pictures so I could see where the critters were getting in. Kyle and another man did the and they were so efficient and professional. I feel good knowing nothing unwanted can get in the attic!

He and his team did exactly what they said they would do, were very professional, and did not leave a mess. Also, they sealed up our house so well that an unwanted guest was trapped in the house. Dave worked with us and did not charge us any extra until we figured out a way to get the critter out of the house for good.

Dave and his crew are just great to work with. From Joanna in the office to the guys who did our work. They did a great job and secured our house so we won't have problems with rats anymore and cleaned up after themselves too! We love these guys and highly recommend them. Honest, hard working and do what they say they will do. Love the fact they take photos so you know what is truly going on with your house. Great company and great folks.

If only our government ran their business the way Dave runs his! Friends always told me I had bats in my belfry but this time it was literally true. Referred by a friend, Dave and his team responded quickly and did a great job at a reasonable price. They were on time, within budget and refreshingly professional. The bats are gone, the mess is cleaned up and spotless.

We started hearing critters crawling in our attic area and decided it was time to contact someone to resolve the issue before it got worse. We proceeded to get quotes from 3 separate companies and Dave was by far the best; he was thorough in his estimate and he was the only one to get on our roof and take pictures. He was very professional throughout and we never felt rushed, especially with the amount of money we were spending. Sealing all the possible entry points, which was pretty much all the crevices of the roof (while keeping the house's aesthetics in mind), looked like it was going to be a long and arduous task. We thought the high price was justified. The other companies gave us the feeling that they were going to cut corners to meet the lower priced quote. Dave's crew came in on the promised day and completed the work over the course of two days. They set up two one-way tunnels to safely remove any critters still stuck in the attic when they sealed the roof. After the recommended couple of weeks had passed, they promptly came back and removed the tunnels, sealed up the hole where the tunnel was initially installed, and took "after" photos of their work. We have nothing but great things to say about him and highly recommend their work. We are actually thinking about calling again for a different, unrelated problem in our yard/lawn.
