"I just wanted to take a moment out of my day to compliment you on one of your employees.

Jennifer M. from inspection to extermination was extremely polite and helpful. She even returned calls and made calls to us outside of her normal work hours to ease our minds. To say the least this whole bed bug experience was incredibly stressful for both my wife and I, but, Jennifer was a big contributing factor in making it bearable.

I just wanted to let you know about a great employee you have who is deserving of recognition. We will be telling all our friends who may have any similar problems to contact Jennifer with their needs and have actually already done so with one friend. Enjoy your weekend!
