The company offers tailored, eco-friendly treatments backed by a re-treatment guarantee.

Q

Con

HomeTeam treats for a narrower range of pests than some companies.

Here are some of the highlights of Hometeam’s services and features:

  • Treats a standard array of pests. Hometeam’s technicians will tackle rodents, ants, spiders, mosquitoes, mice, and bed bugs.
  • 6-Point Advantage Service. Before starting treatment, the company’s technicians perform a 6-Point Advantage Service that includes thoroughly assessing the problem both inside and out of the home, treating entry points, removing cobwebs and wasps’ nests, applying pest control materials, and providing the customer a detailed report that includes tips for prevention.
  • The Taexx pest control system. Builders hire HomeTeam to install the innovative Taexx, a built-in pest control system designed to target household pests where they find their way into a home. In part, the system relies on tubing installed during new home construction which then connect to locked ports on the outside of the house; technicians use these ports to distribute pest control materials. Taexx qualifies as a “Green” program under the guidelines of the Florida Green Building Coalition.
  • 100% Service Guarantee. The Taexx system, along with all of HomeTeam’s services, comes with a 100% Service Guarantee that provides for your home to be re-serviced for free if you are not satisfied.

Customer Support & Reviews

It should be noted, however, that some reviewers had problems with their local offices’ accounting and customer service systems.

“ Professional technicians that communicate well and explain, in detail, what they did. ”

Cost

It’s difficult to compare pest control pricing across companies, as costs tend to vary considerably due to geographical and environmental factors as well as the pest being treated and the severity of an infestation. HomeTeam does provide two of the essentials for ensuring value in pest control: a free initial inspection and estimate, and a 100% Service Guarantee that provides for retreatment as needed to resolve a pest issue.
