We had a colony of European Wasps decide to set up their nest next to our front door. Pest Zap eliminated this issue and also while at our house also sprayed for spiders and ants. Their service was amazing. Thorough and very cost friendly compared to other pest control services. Highly recommend them for any pest control issues. 👍👍

I cannot speak more highly of Doug and Anelia of Pest Zap. They are both so polite, professional, VERY responsive. VERY knowledgeable and obviously experienced and efficient in their line of work. We had an ant infestation in my son's nursery which was very distressing as there was no food in the room and it is kept very clean and sterile Both Doug and Anelia explained the many reasons as to how this could have happened, what our options were to rectify the issue, how much it would cost and answered all our questions very thoroughly. They issue was resolved in a matter of 1-2 days and we cannot thank them enough, particularly because it was in our son's nursery Their slogan "the bug stops here" is no joke and I we will continue to use (and recommend) their services without hesitation. Thanks so, so much Doug and Anelia.


No more cockroaches, ants or spiders! Thanks Doug! Great service. Don't know why I didn't engage Doug sooner.

We have a little one and were seeing spiders in her toy basket and even on her high chair. Since Doug's visit, we haven't had any problems with spiders inside the house. It was totally worth it for the peace of mind. He was very professional and explained the process thoroughly. I highly recommend Pest-Zap!

I've dealt with others who promise the world. It's rare to find a true professional who does what we agree on and is pleasant to deal with. I'll stick with Doug because he knows what he's doing & he looked after my family's home when we really needed help.

Pest-Zap is a great company. Local and reliable. A good price and a great result.

Wayne Preston

I have had the pleasure of dealing with Pest-Zap. For many years I suffered with reoccurring cockroach and ant infestations. I contracted numerous companies over the years who all seemed more interested in taking my money than solving the problem.

Rosemary Duncan

A Pest-Zap technician was on site within two hours of my initial phone inquiry. They resolved my pest problem efficiently and at a good price.

Graham Winkelman

I have no problem recommending Pest-Zap to anyone experiencing a pest infestation problem. They resolved my rodent, cockroach and spider problem with the minimum of fuss. I found them to be friendly and professional, taking special care not to harm my fish. A job well done.

Michael Imad

I am extremely happy with the professional service I received from Pest-Zap. Thanks for a great, effective job.
