Adriana Reagan- “Pests have always been an issue in my house, I’ve been to Home Depot and tried many home remedies but nothing works, then I tried proterra and all of my problems have magically dissapeared. Not only are there products organic, family friendly, and scent-less unlike other companies, it gets the job done. If there’s any issues, they come back to make sure I’m fully satisfied.
