What do their customers think?

“Jeff Duvio – I was referred to Rick Professional Pest Control Inc. by a buddy i work with. He went around the house, up on the roof, in the house, and even under the deck. He actually took video of all the entry ways into the home, and educated me on how rodents get in. Rick did a great job, sealed everything, cemented, caulked, and boarded up all the entryways there were. Rick is extremely professional, got straight to work, and did a thorough job. His attention to detail was excessive, but greatly respected. He truly is an expert in pest control, and provides a damned near permanent solution to your pest control issues. Unlike Plunkets or Adams Pest control, where they just patch the problem, and come back every so often to patch it again.” 

 “JP G – Great experience removing wasp/hornet nests around our home. Rick is super knowledgeable, personable and reasonably priced. Will definitely recommend his services to others!”

Having owner operated experts, like Richard providing knowledgeable and expert care is an asset to Minneapolis and Hennepin County, MN.
