My house had to be tented and need termite repair. D&S came to the house the first time and did an inspection and left my side gate unlocked despite specific instructions to secure it as I have two Labradors that will get out. The second time they came they did repairs and left the gate OPEN and UNLOCKED! Thank God my dogs did not leave. Then prior to tenting, D&S gave me a checklist of things to do which included calling SDG&E to shut off gas and schedule to have it turned back on. When I called SDG&E, they said D&S already called to have it shut off. To make matters worse D&S failed to have knowledge of our share information that SDG&E requires a two week notice for an appointment to have the gas turned back on. With only a 3 day window I called SDG&E to schedule the turn on. SDG&E came early and the refused to return and we ended up without hot water or a stove for 2.5 days on top of having to stay in a motel for 2 days during the tent process. My chief complaint here is the breakdown of communication and accurate information. In addition, these people had absolutely NO RESPECT for our personal property. They entered my attic through the wrong access door in a closet despite specific instructions to enter through the hall access door. When they went in through the closet they dropped a considerable amount of nsulatiom all over blankets, children's coats resulting in costly dry cleaning. These people have no respect for your property.
You have to sign waivers to exempt them from theft yet you have to surrender your house keys so they cam aerate you home of the toxic games however my hidden camera caught them enter the house without any respirators and they failed to call before they arrived as I requested. Don't trust these people. They don't give 2 cents about your property. I tried posting pictures but application not operating.

I had a need for a pest inspection and D & S delivered with stellar performance. On time, courteous and professional inspector and treatment associate. The office staff scheduled my treatment, answered my questions and delivered documents electronically without delay. I was able to close on my refi without any problems. These folks are #1 in my book! Thanks D & S.

D&S did an excellent job on my recent fumigation for termites. They took extra special care in trying (and succeeding) in protecting two treasured plants next to the house and detached garage. They replaced all soil and mulch as if they hadn't even been there. The crew was courteous and professional. I would highly recommend D&S. Greg H

D & S just completed a termite tenting on our coastal 18 unit apartment property in IB and they did a fantastic job. They worked with the Residents ahead of time to ease the process, and they met all the time requirements allowing everyone to move back in as scheduled.

Very timely, called when they were on their way to the house & were very helpful initially and through the process. Their price was good and much lower than a major pest control company. Also took out and put back the fence boards.

I LOVE this company. More than once they have helped me in a real estate transaction where another pest control company has completely overbid the job. In this case, they tented my new home in San Carlos and completed all the repairs. Everything was done on time, EXACTLY as promised. Office staff were accessible. The crew was experienced and friendly. My place was left IMMACULATE! I read that really negative review and really find it hard to believe that - he is describing a completely different company!

They left dirt piles every where driveway, alley and side walks. Knocked over things that where away from the house. Our fence looks like it was attacked by an angry monkey. Then put back up by a blind guy. No offense to the blind i feel you could do a better job. Then we get a call to inform us that the house was broken into during the tenting process. It's funny that the burglars knew exactly what window to enter to gain upstairs access out of the 20 windows we have in the two houses that where being tented. Im not claimming they broke the law. Break ins while your house is being tented is 1 in 10 for San Diego. So leave nothing of behind but bugs and bannanas to try and keep the monkeys happy.

D&S provided great service from beginning to end. They repaired, replaced and painted the fungus damaged wood trellis above our front porch, as well as the wood eaves alongside our roof. The work was completed in a timely fashion, (before they tented and fumigated our home.) The office staff, carpentry crew and the fumigation employees were professional and efficient. We are satisified and recommend D&S Termite!

We are truly satisfied with our choice of D & S Termite for our home. They were completely professional, always on time and pleasant to work with. Each and every step of the process was clearly explained, all questions were answered and the fumigation procedure was made as comfortable as possible for us. We would gladly recommend their services to our family, friends and neighbors. Thank you!

We just completed two services with D&S. It was a nightmare. We were not allowed to have enough bags to pack up food, since some people package up items not needed to be packed, to keep THEIR cost down and other things. The billing was wrong. We were given a discount since we had two houses tented, but when the amount was charged to our card, the morning a conversation took place, the discount was not given. We had to call and get the discount used, but the person who authorizes the refund was not in, we could not get the amount refunded immediately. It was given when Dawn arrived at work. It took over 2 weeks to get the charge paperwork sent to our home, but the bills came the DAY the tenting was removed. The written instructions were not as the spoken instructions. We do want to say that the workers were very nice, but there was one manager who was not completely polite to his workers--they were not working fast enough for him. They did a nice job of cleaning up most of the stuff, but we did have to return lots of the dirt that had been dug up. Interesting that we were asked to post a "positive" review.

We utilized D&S based on a recommendation from our long time home maintenance contractor and they did not disappoint. Everything on schedule and I was impressed on how they took extra care to not wrap my satellite dish.

D&S tented our house & detached garage and did a great job. We knew exactly what to expect, they were on time and they were professional and courteous. A property manager friend recommended them and I understand why.

I'll start at the beginning. We got several inspections and bids because we saw a small swarm in the house. D&S was straight forward about recommending a tenting (we had some local treatment already) and I appreciated that. They sent everything I needed with thorough instructions. As the date got closer, they answered every question in every e-mail or phone call I made. They even had the inspector return to give me some tips on preparation. On the day of the tenting, they arrived and quickly got to work. They were done on time and the house was completely aired out and ready for us to live in. Here are the buts.......... 1. They need to use dirt from your yard to seal the tarp in places. I thought that they would take the dirt from one spot and then return it to the same spot neatly, BUT they dug up several areas and that was a bit of a mess. 2. I have decorative rock on one side of my house and I had to move it back from the house AND pull back the yard cloth, too. That was a big pain in the neck! 3. AND HERE'S MY REAL GRIPE...I had warned the office about the aluminum lattice cover over my patio and told them it would not bear weight. I had a new roof put on 2 years ago and they managed to not dent or bend it but D&S bent down on two of the slats (one pretty badly) and then pushed it back into place. 4. I also found that one roof tile was torn. (As I said, the roof is 2 years old)

D&S tented our house and performed localized treatment for termites in our detached garage. Everyone from D&S was professional, courteous, and friendly. Work was done well and on time.
