We are dedicated to making our residents experience here an enjoyable one. It is situated in a beautiful park like neighborhood with mature trees, walking trails and manicured grounds. We take any concern a resident may have seriously. So, when a resident called about bed bugs, we called Rose right away. You have been taking care of our needs for many years and we had no doubt that you would this time as well. The Rose team responded quickly, verified that it was indeed bed bugs and then set up a program to eliminate them. They did a great job explaining the biology and habits of this pest and discussed the different possibilities as to how the bed bugs may have been introduced into their home. They also explained what the residents needed to do to prepare for the treatment to help make the experience a positive one. Everyone from Rose was very discrete in how they went about their jobs. The bed bugs were eliminated in a timely fashion and we have not had any sightings or calls in well over a year since.
