The technician (Ronnie, I believe) came with a mask on meaning he cared about me and my space. He explained he was here for my annual termite inspection. This he did most efficiently and also took the time to check my rodent trap, putting in new bait. He reported back to me with the good news, no termites and the bait that was previously in trap had been eaten. Both of these were news as a homeowner that made me very happy.The description above is from a prior date.Today, December 9, Matt Julian came. He was very good at coordinating a time that worked for me.He is very aware of COVID making sure to wear a mask, using my gate rather than going thru my garage, and making sure to social distance as he did his inspection. He let me know what had been eating in my traps and also looked and told me what had dug a hole under the plastic platform holding my air conditioner. Matt also check other areas in my yard for possible problems. He is very personable and a true professional in doing his job. He is a fabulous employee!!!Matt Julian, just did an inspection for me today Feb 15, 2021, of my rodent traps. The weather was brutal, still he did the job and replaced the eaten bait in my 2 traps. Matt allows calls before his arrival and reports back after serving my traps. I could not ask for more dedicated responsible service.Matt Julian just did my inspection and replaced bait in my traps. Ever so efficient, doing a great job of keeping rodents from destroying my property and getting into my garage and house.

Called Smithereen with a suspected rodent problem in our garage and within the attached wall. Brian came out to service our house. He was so pleasant to speak with and professional! He gave us lots of tips and tricks and walked us through everything he was doing. I am so happy with the service! He should get a bonus! Lol. He mentioned he's been in this business for 22 years! God bless him! Very thankful for his and Smithereen's services and look forward to our continued business as we signed up for the yearly contract. 🙂

While having my plumbing fixed after the cold weather, I was told there was a dead possum in my crawl space. I called Smithereen and spoke with Ray. We arranged for a time the next day that was convenient. Jimmy came out and removed the body. It was very smoothly done and I was at work on time.

I was notified of our regular site inspection and service. The technician was punctuation, cordial , and very professional. I was not needed since the service has been performed regularly. I appreciate the fact that I did not have to ask a million questions and let him do what he does. It's the little things that matter as I have enough on my plate.

Technician arrived as scheduled. He made a thorough inspection of the attic and identified the problem. He then place a trap to capture the squirrel that had entered and become a problem. I accompanied him while he inspected the outside of the house and identified potential entry points into the attic space. He set up a follow-up date for reinspection and removal of any captured animal. He was very professional.
18:33 04 Jan 21
Very professional! Our tech David was very informative, punctual, and you can tell he genuinely cares. Thanks!

Smithereen has helped us control our rodent issues for quite some time now. I appreciate their dedication to the task. They do an especially good job of communicating the status of each of their visits. I would be happy to recommend them to anybody. Their technicians are prompt, courteous and very professional.

From my first contact with Brian, through the initial treatment by Ronnie and Phillip and follow-ups by Phillip, David, and Gregory, EVERY aspect of their service was professional and they were always pleasant and determined to do the best job possible. I have nothing but praise for all of them, and they have done an outstanding job!

Matt was our technician! He was very educational on our rat situation. He even took the time to help us set peanut butter correctly on 9 of our rat traps. We have a follow up in a week, hopefully there’s no more activity until then!

I recently purchased a home where the previous owners already had a contract with Smithereen to come quarterly for rodent and other pest prevention. Before I had even closed on the house, I received a phone call from David who introduced himself as my serviceman (if that's the right word?) and wanted to see if I had any questions or concerns. I was really impressed that he took the initiative to introduce himself so soon. Flash forward a few weeks, he came for his quarterly inspection and treatment. While he was in my living room discussing everything, I witnessed a cat get hit by a car. David went out to check on the cat and found it was deceased. When he found out that 311 was closed for Veteran's Day, instead of giving up, he called the non-emergency line, and stayed on hold with them for probably at least 20-25 minutes while he still spoke to me about why he was there. When the non-emergency line finally answered, he was told they could not come get the cat. David got a trash bag from me and picked up the cat. He was going to take it back with him to dispose of it, but I was able to find the cat's owner. Lastly, he covered the area with disinfectant. This was all before he even did anything relating to pest control. I was blown away by this level of customer service and professionalism. From what we discussed, the pest prevention has been working, so I think the service itself is good. I just wanted to make sure I commented about David's amazing customer service and make sure he is recognized.

Hands down the best pest management company in KC. Personally, and as small business owners, this is the only company my family and I will use. Brian has always been our technician and he is thorough, effective, beyond knowledgeable and helpful, as well as one of the nicest people you could ever meet. Plus their pricing is in-line and affordable, which is just as important when you’re a small business owner. I’d definitely refer Smithereen to anyone, anytime!

We've been with Smithereen for several years and have been so impressed by the quality of service we've received. We live in home that was build in 1903 and we've had lots of issues with mice. They've been diligent and thorough in their service. They're willing to do whatever it takes to rid our house of these problems. I would highly recommend them to anyone who is frustrated with the amount of unwanted pests in their homes!

I met with Smithereen technician Brian and another tech came with him. They were both very professional and explained everything while they were setting a trap to catch a groundhog on my property. Brian said they would come back and check the trap in 24 hrs. They kept their word as promised. This company is very affordable and provides great customer service!
22:54 25 Sep 20
David, the inspector came on time, wearing a mask and answered all my questions. Very nice and personalable. Would highly recommend them. Also called 5 other companies for this issue and never heard back. Their loss!

Smithereen is an awesome company. I started using them, for my house, about 4 years ago. David came out and was very professional and knowledgeable about what he was doing. I ended up moving out of that house and into a condo a couple years later. I didn’t want to lose them as a company, so I hired them for my restaurant in the River Market. Once again, David is my guy. Couldn’t be happier. He came in, did his thing, and BOOM....pests are gone!! The property manager of the whole building was impressed by the job and asked me who I was using. I told her the name and now they are the exterminators of the whole block. Quality gets recognition. I also want to recognize Paul. Paul comes out when David can’t make it. Paul is an amazing human and exterminator as well. These 2 guys are huge assets to this company. They both deserve to be recognized and rewarded for their outstanding work and are just overall nice guys!!! I recommend Smithereen to everyone I talk to!

We have used Smithereen for both routine pest control and special treatments for our rental property for four years. Their technicians always contacted us in advance to inform us about their estimated arrival time and were on time. All Smithereen technicians were good, and we prefer David. David is professional and always went above and beyond if he saw issues. He treated and examined the entire house thoroughly. We highly recommend Smithereen for its service quality and value.

Keith from Smithereen responded on behalf of my KC 311 call regarding a rat. I didn't have the highest of expectations from the city, but Keith was professional, cheery, and overall gave me peace of mind about the rat. Couldn't have been happier that he came by and I can't wait to never see the rat again!
