Found Bill’s Pest Control while researching how to get rid of powder post beetles.  Glad we found them.  They were the only exterminator in the valley that had a treatment option that was chemical free.  Two years after the service the beetles have not resurfaced.

Powder Post Beetle Exterminator

Bill's was recommended by our property manager and we are thankful for the recommendation. The few exterminators we found that exterminate beetles wanted thousands of dollars for extermination. Their treatments take 3-5 days so we had to ad the expense of staying in a hotel. The two pages of prep work required us to take two days off work and was a hassle.

Bill's quote was less than half and did not require days of prep work or staying in a hotel.

Better yet the service worked.
