Today I had my first experience with Fox Pest Control as they came out for an initial visit. Xavier came out and was super professional, explained everything clearly, and was super fast and careful protecting our house. Thank you!

We just signed up with Fox. They were extremely professional, explained the job and all the options for service. Our technician, Dalton, was punctual, professional, and even walked me through the work he performed and areas to be aware of. In addition, he clearly explained next steps and addressed any worries I had. Excellent service all around
