[This review is for their tenting services] Think twice before using Chet's for termite tenting. It's a real shame because their single-home service had been to my address several times and were exceptional.
Chet's came in almost $600 less than the next closest quote we received for the tenting of our 5 unit townhome building. Based on the personal service a few of us had with Chet's we were comfortable going with them. What the Chet's rep didn't make obvious was the small print on the contract that they use Magnum - a company we chose to avoid due to their abysmal ratings everywhere - to do the actual tenting. Chet's is only a middleman. That's on all of us for missing that. However, we found that our concerns were warranted. Here's the full list of things that weren't right:
- Resident ladder (stored in another room) was used to go into the attic. Ladder was left in the hallway and loose insulation was left on the floor around it.
- Exterior light was knocked over, located 4 feet from the building
- Gate was left open, tied off with some rusty wire
- Plastic sprinkler head located 3 feet from stoop was knocked over and broken.
- Folding chair in garage was used to stand on to unplug garage door power cord.
- Power cords for garage doors were left unplugged, unraveled and hanging.
- Beer can was left near a front stoop.
- Exterior spigot was broken off, leaving unit without water service.
- 3 foot section of fence damaged and removed.
- Fence cap cracked
To Chet's credit they did have a plumber out quickly to repair the spigot.
It's been three months and despite a half dozen calls with Carol and repeated assurances, none of the fence damage has been fixed. We were given numerous excuses for the delays in the repair. Carol apologized for Magnum on all accounts and assured us that she had a conversation with them about the misc issues but not sure that actually happened.
Three months is a silly amount of time to wait for a simple repair. We've now referred it to our HOA for them to go after Chet's. We're all left wondering if the warranty we received is actually any good, or if we'll experience the same aloof run-around that we've had with the last remaining issue from Magnum.
Have been using Chet's Pest Control for several years now. My original problem was ghost ants travelling from one end of the house to the other. Thanks to Frank and Chet's the ants are no longer an issue. He is always prompt for each visit and can be relied on to solve my pest control concerns.
We have been using Chet's Pest control for two years to control carpenter ants. Our yard is a jungle and while we love the lush foliage, so do the ants. Andrew Munoz is our tech. He shows up on time, listens to what we have observed, and most importantly treats the bugs. We have recommended Chet's and Andrew to our neighbors.
I have been using Chet's since I moved into my house in 2011, having "inherited" them from the previous owner. In all the time I have been living here Eduardo has been here every two months for regular treament and anytime I have had a problem with pests and requested additional service, he has shown up promptly within a couple of days to re-treat my home. The work has always been done quickly, efficiently and many times I don't even know he's been here until he is leaving.

Be careful if you use this company. They tented my home for termites in July 2011 and in the process put a hole in my roof. The employee did not tell the supervisor who was not on site. The supervisor admitted that it would have been better if the employee called him about the hole and that the supervisor is usually on site but it was a Saturday and he had an important family function to attend. Well it rained and the carpet got saturated with water. They, the company, only offered to pay for 1/2 of the carpet water vacuuming. Thanks a lot ! They take no responsibility for the roof which I patched at a cost of $100.00
I do not recommend this company. There are a lot of companies to choose from and if i knew they would not have anyone in charge I would have not used them.
