– CUSTOMER TESTIMONIALS –
As a new Florida Resident coming from N.Y., had very little knowledge of maintaining a lawn properly. On my first Appt, with Robert A of McCalls, he explained in detail the problems my lawn was having and what he thought would need to be done to resolve them & restore my lawn to where it should be.
My lawn has not look this good in years. Mr Castaneda has been very knowledgeable about my lawn. All the weeds have disappeared and it looks green again. Would highly recommend his service at any location! Thank you for the outstanding job.
I can't say enough about McCall's. The best in the business! Harley and the other 2 gentleman (sorry I forgot your names) were phenomenal! Even my dog loves them!
I wanted to send a personal email to thank you for Chris's great customer service and the knowledge given on controlling our pest control problem. I feel better in regards to choosing your company and having support who works that ensures the main issue is resolved
Anthony’s service was AWESOME. I thought I paid for one service and ended up getting a follow up service that I had no idea about but was very grateful. I will be recommending McCall to all of our Investor buddies, we have rental properties. Thanks you Anthony for your follow up, professionalism, and great value but most importantly, your service.
Morgan went out of his way to address an issue. Bugs should be terrified when he is around.
Service was thorough and friendly! Khalil did a fantastic job and I am very confident that the job was done right. Very glad I went with this company for regular pest control. Thank you!
Our service tech, Michael Guthrie, was awesome. He was on time, polite, inspected thoroughly, and treated the house exactly like my husband was explained it would be. We haven't seen an ant since. My only wish is that we called McCall sooner!
Gary was professional. He explained everything he did. He did a thorough inspection and then treated. He was courteous and an absolute pleasure. I strongly recommend this company and Gary for all your pest control needs!
