603 Pest was very responsive when I called in August 2020 about yellow jackets going after the painter up on his ladder. They diverted Chris and he was there in about 20 minutes. He addressed the issue which turned out to be a rather large size nest that had just established itself within a few days. He treated the nest which was behind an exterior light fixture. He removed the fixture carefully and sprayed and ensured it was safe for the painter to continue. Highly recommend!

We are having issues with mice and potentially some other wildlife though we aren't sure. When we called 603 Pest, we spoke to a wonderful woman (I can't remember her name, I'm so sorry but she was incredibly helpful). We got an appointment the same week which is not typical in my experience. The exterminatory they sent, Dan, was wearing a mask when he arrived at the door which was awesome. I was happy that he took the precaution without me having to ask. Dan also ensured he stayed 6ft away when at all possible and wore coverings for his boots. He was very informative about what the issues were and what he was doing/did to address them. He was honest about what he could and couldn't do. We rent an old farmhouse so there are a lot of issues that we have no control over and Dan made sure he did what he could but also let us know that they didn't fix the problem but would help. Dan also ensured we were aware of what the next steps, coming out to check in about 2 weeks and let us know what would be done to address any further issues. He was very knowledgeable and took the time to ensure we knew and understood what was being done. He also made sure we knew that we could call between scheduled visits if there were issues. Dan was very professional and even made sure to give us info about potential harm to our small dog from traps set in the upstairs/attic so we would be sure to keep her out of that area. Based on the interaction with lady who answered the phone and scheduled our appointment and then Dan, I would highly recommend 603 Pest to others. 603 Pest is very lucky to have both employees as a part of their team!

We had a bad issue with yellow jacket bees coming in through our ceiling in our master bedroom which of course happened on a Sunday. Jeff from 603 Pest returned my call within 15 minutes of my leaving a message on Sunday, and he scheduled an appointment to get us in early Monday morning.603 Pest did a great job today! Dan was very friendly. He explained the very detailed process to get rid of the yellow jacket bees, and treated both areas of our house with active bee activity. Bees should be all gone soon!Thank you!They were also Recommended to us by “critter control of New Hampshire.”

Dan was awesome. He took care of a yellow jacket nest located between our foundation and the sill of our home and sprayed our entire foundation to prevent further invasions. He was timely - arrived at the scheduled appointment time, polite - introduced himself and was respectful of our yard, and personable - he explained about the eradication process and put our minds at ease when he was done. We would definitely recommend 603 Pest based on this experience and we would definitely request Dan again (if that were possible). Thank you!

I'm so glad we chose 603Pest. Not only were we able to get an appointment quickly, but the tech was very knowledgeable. After he pointed out and treated the huge carpenter ant nest (gross) , he explained what to look for and how we can avoid any further problems. They were also very affordable compared to others we called that day. I would definitely use them again!

Getting rid of yellow jackets: A Merrimack, NH pest control story

Ride along on a preventative service visit to get rid of yellow jackets in a Merrimack, NH home

Spring is here, and pests are looking for cozy nooks to settle down and build nests. For bees, hornets, and yellow jackets, siding and eaves on the exterior of your home are some of the first places they look. Here’s the story of one Merrimack homeowner who had been fighting back with over-the-counter bug sprays (and losing) who called us in for help.

2018 - Ride along on a preventative service visit to get rid of yellow jackets that were bugging one Merrimack, NH homeowner.

DIY disaster

We received a message through our website from Jen in Merrimack, who was seeing yellow jackets swarming around her house. The winged, stinging insects were focused on a section where the house’s siding had warped to create small spaces allowing them to get underneath. The pests were even getting into the home somehow. For the past few years, the homeowners had tried to eradicate the flying pests using bug sprays from the local hardware store, with little success.

It was time to call in the professionals.

First things first

We love calls like this. If we can treat your home before pests settle in, it’s a lot easier to keep them out than to get rid of them after the fact. Every infestation is different. Only after a thorough walk around the property to look for other entrance points or things that might attract more pests, can we begin treatment.

Here are a few of the things we found at Jen’s house:

  • Outdoor ant traps. Unless you are prepared to replace these often and be vigilant with monitoring and upkeep, skip these. They’re full of bait that in a perfect world will make it back to the nest and wipe out everything, but the reality is that these types of traps can attract more than they kill, including other types of pests.
  • Cute cats. The cats had to stay indoors for two hours after we treated the house, but they didn’t seem to mind much. Our products and treatments are designed to be tough on pests while safe for everyone else. We ask folks to keep furry friends inside when we’re working outside, but the coast is clear in about two hours afterward.
  • Stuff on the deck. There’s stuff outside of everyone’s house. We’re used to it and can work around it. We’ll ask to move it if we need to. While we appreciate any efforts, you make to clear space for us to work, we’re pretty nimble, so no need to do anything in advance.

The treatment

Based on what we saw, we opted to spray the perimeter of the housetop and bottom, paying special attention to the hotspots Jen mentioned near the siding. One of the reasons DIY pest control treatments rarely work is because they are short-term solutions; The options that act as barriers to repel yellow jackets and other pests require special equipment and application best left to a professional.

The treatment took about an hour. We went over instructions about what to look out for in the areas where yellow jackets were swarming. We also talked about a year-long plan to prevent any recurrence, which can happen if house-hunting pests revisit after the repellent wears off. A typical treatment will repel pests for a few months, depending on the pest and weather conditions.

Our customers are the bee’s knees

It is an honor to help keep your family safe from the stress and health hazards an infestation can cause. It’s a truly great feeling to know we made an impact. We like to think it sets 603 Pest apart from the rest of the pack. and believe so much in it that we guarantee satisfaction on your service, because pests don’t live free in the 603!
