Aptive at a Glance
Same day response (varies)
Aptive offers both residential and commercial pest control services. Since the business is fairly new (having only been founded in 2015), it’s still expanding its network. That is true both in terms of services offered and states where the services are available. Currently, Aptive is only active in 25 states, but it is working to expand that reach.
What’s more, Aptive covers a lot of the typical household pests, but it is also limited within this scope. For example, Aptive will cover rodents, common bugs, ants, termites, cockroaches, and spiders. Many other pest control services will go a lot farther than this, though, offering things like wildlife control, mosquitoes extermination, attic services, and more. We look forward to seeing more services added to the list of Aptive possibilities in the near future. For now, here’s what’s covered:
- Stingers and biters
- Pantry pests
Commercial infestations can vary depending on your location, type of business, and property setup. Common pests Aptive deals with in these situations include rodents, ants, flies, and cockroaches. Commercial properties that Aptive currently deals with include:
- Professional office buildings
- Warehouses and storage facilities
- Manufacturing facilities
- Retail and department stores
- Malls and shopping centers
- Car dealerships
- Medical and dental clinics
- Daycare centers
- Churches, synagogues, and temples
- Funeral homes
- Property management portfolios
Pricing for Aptive plans is custom-quoted. The quote will be based on how big your home is, what type of infestation you’re dealing with, how far along the infestation has progressed, and what type of coverage you’re looking for, among other factors.
Aptive does have a comprehensive service plan called the Four Seasons Protection Plan. This is a full-service, year-round pest protection service plan that really covers all your bases. Here’s how it works:
- The Four Seasons Protection Plan starts with a professional home inspection.
- The certified pest specialist will visit your home and assess your property for current or potential pest infestation risks.
- Together with you, the specialist will customize a treatment plan so that your home will remain pest-free throughout the entire year.
This is the most comprehensive coverage possible and the one that most homeowners opt for to ensure a problem-free year.
And just as an aside, Aptive doesn’t keep every penny it makes off of you. In fact, this altruistic company has won several awards for generously donating to charities and worthy causes. One particularly relevant cause is the Nothing But Nets campaign it participated in starting last year. The program was launched by the United Nations in an attempt to eradicate the serious and deadly malaria disease that is plaguing millions of people throughout Africa every day.
Every year, Aptive donates a portion of the company profits to Nothing But Nets, and consumers can also donate $10 to send a net of protection over to someone in Africa.
Aptive has the best protection guarantee we’ve ever seen in this industry. When you purchase a plan with this company, it comes with an unlimited re-service free of charge. That means if the problem ever comes back, an Aptive technician will come back to your home again and again until the problem is eliminated.
Aptive offers same-day services for clients within the 25 states where this company is active. That’s top-notch customer service that you won’t get with most other pest control solutions. There is a dedicated phone number for each state and area (when there are multiple locations within a single state), and customers can reach out to customer service or schedule a certified pest specialist visit via the phone numbers given on the website.
Aptive also has a live chat, though it’s not available 24/7. When we reached out, the live chat representative was fast to respond (within a minute). She was courteous and answered my questions quickly and thoroughly. We were pleased with our customer service experience, and that reflects similar satisfaction to what you’ll find if you read user reviews online.
Green Pest Control
One of the biggest selling points for Aptive pest control is that it is a green solution. Most pest control and extermination services use chemicals to flush out or eradicate the pests troubling your home. The concern with this specific approach is that those chemicals are harmful in many ways. They destroy the environment you're living in, killing bugs, but also destroying plant life such as grass, bushes, and flowers along the way. What's more, chemical treatments are harmful to children, pets, and sometimes even to adults. Exposing your family to such treatments is just not a good idea.
Green pest control solutions, on the other hand, use environmentally-friendly products. These are both safe for the environment and for your family. Aptive uses only environmentally-sound products in all its pest control treatments, so you don’t even have to leave the house during treatment.
Here’s what a few of the Aptive Pest Control clients have to say about the service:

“Fernando is professional, friendly, upbeat, and helpful. He is the face of Aptive to me, and would be the biggest factor in me referring my friends and family.” - Bobby W., Kansas City, MO
“Taylor was a sharp gentleman. He took his time to thoroughly treat my home and yard. He was friendly, knowledgeable, and answered all of my questions.” - Bethany T., Chicago, IL
“The Service Pro was a very pleasant individual. He arrived ready to work! He explained the target areas and was prepared to take care of all our needs. Thank you for taking care of our home!” - Ezequiel R., Milwaukee, WI
Aptive is a top of the charts pest control service that really goes the extra mile. You see how dedicated it is to quality service by the methodical practices technicians are trained in. What's more, Aptive technicians use only environmentally-safe products and procedures, and that's good for the world and your family. Aptive has a solid year-round guarantee, so even if pests return, you won't be left with an infestation to deal with on your own. And the comprehensive service plans ensure pest management for every season of the year. Aptive earns five stars from our reviewers for quality service.
