We moved to our new home in Fontana in February 2014. Since then, we have had a steady - if not overwhelming - ant problem. They have successfully made their way into every room in the house. We tried store-bought products, but never seemed to completely address the issue.Finally, when we spied a trail making its way across our kitchen floor, we decided to call an exterminator. We read the reviews for R & D and were impressed. We gave them a call and are very pleased to state that the reviews for R & D are spot on.Paul arrived at our house at the appointed time and was very thorough in explaining what we faced and how he planned to treat the problem. He addressed our concerns about our two dogs, described that the treatment he would be using water-based and would not cause any harm to surrounding plants and animals, and answered all of our other questions relating to the service.Paul was very specific in explaining that the treatment he used would not kill the ants right away - instead, the ants would take the pesticide back to the nest where it would kill the remaining colony.Overall, Paul was able to cover both our yard and our house in about 30 minutes. He advised us to leave for approximately an hour - we took the dogs for a well-needed walk - we returned to find the treated areas dry, with absolutely no residue.This was 4 days ago. Since then, I have seen exactly one ant. I think I can live with that.
We had a HORRIBLE ant problem in pretty much every room of our house (at one point or another) last summer and we just miserably suffered through it because i really didn't want to have chemicals sprayed in the house, sure enough the second the heat returned this year, so did the ants- thousands of them. I finally gave in and decided to call the professionals. My aunt has been using R&D for years so she suggested I give them a try. Dan came out the very next day and he didn't even need to spray inside, (he just sprayed the perimeter of the house). I HAVE NOT SEEN A SINGLE ANT IN OUR HOME SINCE THAT DAY! Their prices are reasonable, there are no contracts, and everyone we dealt with was super friendly and knowledgeable. They recommend spraying every 2 months in the summer so we will definitely be using them again in July! An added bonus is that the chemicals they use are not extremely harsh, which was a concern of mine. These guys are great, i would gladly recommend them to anyone!
When I discovered a rat had been sleeping on my engine block, I blindly (because I did not know who to call) called R&D because of yellow page ad. I'm glad I did. Paul came out the next day, set traps in my garage, let me know where a rodent could enter and told me how to correct the problem. I also had an ant & spider problem plus some small mystery roaches had appeared in my kitchen sink. He sprayed and within 24 hr there were no more bugs. The rat took 3 weeks to catch. When I called to tell them there was something in the trap, they came right over, took the critter away & reset the trap. 2 months later & I've had no more rats. Paul came over today for maintenance call since it's been 2 months since he last sprayed. Ants are starting to appear outside now. With R&D's help I won't have ants in the kitchen this summer like I've had every summer for the past 15 years. I would highly recommend this company. Glad to write a positive review! Paula K.

The sweetest sound I ever heard - no more scurrying of tiny ant feet! ANTS GONE, thanks to R&D Pest Services! I first tried sprinkling cinnamon EVERYWHERE - those little suckers hated the stuff, so many vamoosed, but more came in places cinnamon couldn't adhere to. Finally, we called R&D Pest Services, and Dan came, providing friendly, professional, and knowledgeable service. He said the ants would be gone in 3-5 days, and golly gee, 99% were gone in 24 hours. All was well until 10 days later, when I noticed a small trail of ants visiting a plate of cat food on the back patio. I called the office and they said it was probably a new nest, but just give it a day or two so the ants could carry the insecticide back to the nest. It worked, and we are SO impressed! We're now on a maintenance program, so the next time I come to visit my daughter in CA, I know the house will be ant free! Yay!
I needed professional help to deal with ant invasion 2014. I've lived in my house for almost 13 years and have only had one incident of ants coming in about six or seven years ago. I called a company and had to leave the house and put my dog in doggy day care for the day. I liked that with R & D I didn't have to leave and they just sprayed the chemical on a rag and wiped down the areas that had ants. At least they were able to do this at my house because the ants were only in three rooms and the garage on the west side of the house. Paul & Mike were very nice and answered all my questions. They said the ants would be gone in two days and by George they were! The annoying spiders that were making a web outside of my sliding glass door were also taken care of. It's nice not having to walk through a web everyday because I always forgot it was there! Thank you R & D!!
R&D was great and they made what was an annoying situation as easy as possible. I had noticed a large number of bees swarming on the side my house and going in and out of my attic thru an opening. I sent out my request for a quote on yelp and Mike from R&D was the first to contact me. He was very knowledgeable and personable. He explained to me exactly what was going on and what he could do to treat it. After looking around some more i felt like R&D was the best bet. I set up an appointment with Mike and he came out the next day. It was great because I didn't even have to be home for the appointment. Even though Mike told me it would take a day for the treatment to start working, most of the bees were gone by the time I got home. All around an excellent and professional company. I highly recommend R&D should you have a pest problem.
R&D Pest Services is one of the best company to take care pest problem. My tenant was complaining about ants for quite some time. I called R&D, the receptionist listened my problem carefully and informed me someone will reach me soon. I got a call back from Paul within 1 hour. He also listened the problem carefully and gave me an appointment. He came on time as scheduled. He inspected the home thoroughly. He had not only taken care the ants problem, he explained the root cause of the problem and recommended how we can keep the ants out of the property in future. Both my tenant and myself are very happy with their services, expertise, and dedication. There are no ants in the property since then. They took care a major problem in my rental property. I would like to thank the R&D Pest Services team for their great service!!
6/12/2014 I was very pleased and happy with R & D! I hate roaches! Come to find out I had German Roaches, that seemed to never go away. I tried several over the counter sprays and motels. Did not work. I called R & D, very friendly and professional over the phone. Paul and Mike came out to my home. Both very friendly and professional. The service took about two hours. Paul and Mike stated, to first be satisfied before we pay for our service. We waited the 3-4 weeks after the service. As Paul stated, we would see some Roaches, dead and alive within these weeks, and we did. I can now say we have been Roache free for a full two weeks now! I believe we are home free! I would recommend without any hesitation R & D to anyone in need of pest control! Thank you so much R & D!Happy Family in Rancho Cucamonga!:)
Have been able to control ants and bugs around my home for 20 years; until this past summer. Then I had a few different types of ants inside and out. I knew I had to call a professional when I saw several mounds of fire ants in the backyard. My sister has had R & D for 25 years, and loves them, so naturally I got their number and called. Service was very friendly and professional from the start. Mike called right back and we set up a time for him to come out. I was very concerned about my vegetable garden, he assured me everything would be safe and explained where he would spray. It was all very quick, professional and efficient. They 'll be back in a couple of months to re-spray and make sure the ants stay gone! Thanks, Mike and R & D for such good service.
I was having a terrible ant problem. Ants inside and out. Called R&D pest services and they were able to come out in a couple days. Mike came and was able to find 3 trails. He did his magic and I did not see a single ant the next day. They do guarantee their service for 30 days which is great. A couple of weeks after I had them come out I had ants appear inside where I had never seen them before. Mike came back and put some ant bait gel around that area. A few days later I saw a trial outside leading to that area inside. Mike came back out but could not find said trail but he sprayed again. Haven't seen another ant. Great customer service. I will definitely use them again.
