I met Cory, the owner, And one of his techs (I forgot his name) when they stopped by my house offering a free inspection for roof rats. They claimed that my neighbors down the street were experiencing a problem with roof rats and so they wanted to make sure all of the neighbors were rat free.
First thing that came to my mind was "Yeah right. These guys are just trying to market themselves." So I played the ignorant ditzy girl roll just to see if they would tried to con me.
I let them in and they went to the backyard to check around the citrus trees. They thoroughly examined the fruit that dropped to the ground for evidence of being eaten by rats. Then the tech went up to the attic. He was up there for a bit then called for Cory to "come take a look at this". I dont go up there EVER so I don't know what they were looking at but they both came down and proceeded to check around the outside perimeter of the house and noticed a little screen missing from one of those little holes up towards the roof. They offered a service where they would come out and make sure any holes or potential spaces where a critter could squeeze into the house, would be sealed.
I declined their offer and asked them what the conclusion of the inspection was. They said I was all good. No signs of any rat infestation.
I was shocked! I knew that we didn't have a problem with rats but I wanted to test their integrity and honesty. They were just about to leave when I asked them about other services they provided. I already had a reliable and very effective pest control service subscription but I like to support my local small businesses. Because I value their honesty and integrity and Cory and his tech didn't try to sell me services that I didn't need, I cancelled my bug service and switched to Green Machine for my scorpion and bug control. Haven't seen one scorpion!
After we had a couple weeks of random rain, I did notice a few creepy crawlers in my driveway SO I texted Cory and he sent out a tech the very next day to retreat at no charge. I really like EVERYONE at Green Machine. Their prices are affordable, the service and techs are very knowledgeable and courteous, and I highly recommend them to anyone!
