TRAPPER JOHN Complaint - POOR SERVICE - RAT CONTROL

Review by laser lady on 2006-08-04
FLORIDA -- I hired TAPPER JOHN, a pest control service on May 19th.because I had a rat infestation that had been going on for approximately one month.
Two representatives came to my house promising to block all entryways and set traps to alleviate my horrible situation. They put some wire mesh over the roof air vents and set traps with beef stick. "Now the materials used could not have cost more than $15.00."I was charged $435.00 with the understanding they would come back frequently to check the traps and reset them as necessary.
WITHIN 5 MINUTES OF THEM LEAVING THE TRAPS BEGAN GOING OFF FOR NO REASON. I called-NO RESPONSE.I began resetting the traps myself. ONE WEEK LATER NO TRAPPER JOHN-NO DEAD RATS!!!!!
Many sleepless nights, lots of Duck tape and multiple phone calls still NO RESPONSE. NOW THE RATS ARE RUNNING AROUND INSIDE THE HOUSE. ONE OF MY DOGS WALKS UP TO ME WITH A NEWBORN RAT IN HER MOUTH-YOU CAN IMAGINE MY SHOCK. STILL NO RESPONSE FROM TRAPPER JOHN...
By fourth of July weekend I set traps everywhere, packed the dogs in the car, set of rat bombs in evey room in the house and LEFT.
21 DEAD RATS LATER I AM STILL TRYING TO GET A FULL REFUND FROM THE LAME COMPANY.
DO YOURSELF A FAVOR DON'T EVER USE TRAPPER JOHN

What a nightmare! We had a few mice when we moved in our house but got rid of them ourselves by getting a cat (with hungry claws!) Rats would probably take a cat on though. :(
Hope you get rid of them soon, I wonder if your local city hall could recommend someone to help?
