The good thing about AgPest is that it is a humane pest control service, so it doesn't just go in there flashing lights and spraying deadly fumes at the wildlife. Instead, it provides humane live capture and removal services. So, you're free from your invaders, and the world is a more peaceful place.

When it comes to bees and wasps, AgPest also takes a proactive step to pest control. It’ll remove hives completely to address the root of the infestation in a safe, economical, and environmentally-friendly manner. AgPest also provides full termite control services that include a fzee inspection, localized treatments, whole building fumigation, thermagation, and eco-friendly borates.

Finally, AgPest also offers landscaping and lawn care services. From weed control and fungus control to soil analysis, disease remedies, tree and landscape spraying, and more, according to the website, AgPest will have your landscape looking fresher, greener, and healthier than ever.

Pricing

AgPest does not publish any pricing details on the website directly. This is annoying because it means you can’t make a comparison of service pricing until you speak directly with a representative. But the truth is that all pest control services do this. So, you’re going to have to at least send out an email or 2 if you want to do any comparison shopping.

What we can tell you off the bat is that AgPest prices are competitive. Of course, pricing will vary, depending on many factors, including:

  • Type of infestation
  • Degree of infestation
  • Landscape
  • Migration potential
  • Time of year
  • Treatment required

AgPest also has a much more convenient payment method than most pest control services. Once you sign up for an account, you can pay directly online. So, you don’t have to juggle payments when the technician arrives or worry about being overcharged for the wrong services.

What's more, AgPest actually offers coupons directly on the website for discounts and freebies on services. You can get $50 off of termite treatment, $25 off any pest or rodent control services, or a free termite inspection with the coupons.

Services include accurate pest identification, assessment of existing and potential damage caused by the pests or infestation, survey of conditions that might be attracting the pests as well as environmental factors that may be contributing to the infestation, development and implementation of pest management plan, monitoring of program effectiveness, and a full pest maintenance program to prevent re-infestation.

Guarantee

AgPest offers a guarantee on all its work. One downside is that the company does not specify what the guarantee is or what the parameters of the guarantee are directly on the website. However, AgPest states that it is committed to customer satisfaction and that it will work until all of its customers are happy with the work that’s been done on their behalf.

Customer Service

AgPest offers phone and email support. You can also fill out the online contact form, and someone will get back to you with an answer quickly.

AgPest has a blog that provides you with lots of interesting articles about pest control. AgPest also has 24-hour emergency services. So, if you have a pest problem at any time of night or day, you can call them up, and a technician will be at your door in no time.
