Utah’s Top Rated Local® Pest Control Companies Award Winner: Tanner Pest Control

Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that Tanner Pest Control is a 2018 award for pest control companies in Utah!

Has your home been taken over by pests? If so, there’s no better pest control company in Salt Lake City to turn to than Tanner Pest Control.

Tanner Pest Control has earned dozens of online reviews with an average rating of 4.89 stars, an impeccable Rating Score™ of 94.95 and a 2018 Top Rated Local award for being ranked among the top 10 pest control companies in all of Utah!

Here’s just one of the many five-star reviews they’ve received from their happy clients:

“These guys are awesome. When we moved into our house, we quickly realized we had a terrible pest problem. We called Tanner, and right away, our problem was almost non-existent. They are super friendly, great to work with and always on time. We’ve been using them for almost two years now and will continue to do so.” – Jeremy W

Not Your Average Pest Control Company

Tanner Pest Control is not like other pest control companies. Tanner Pest Control is not a one-size-fits-all company. They understand that their clients have individual needs, and they offer personalized service to meet those needs. Larger companies can’t offer this kind of individualized service because they have outgrown margins, but at Tanner Pest Control, they are committed to making their services work for every customer!

We asked Steve Tanner, the owner of Tanner Pest Control, why they do what they do and how they work to make the world a better place. Here’s what he had to say:

“Our goal is to raise the standard of living by providing our clients with pest-free homes and green, weed-free lawns. We want homeowners to be proud and comfortable in their home, which is their number one asset.”

Building Success By Being Available

Steve credits Tanner Pest Control’s strong online reputation to his team’s quick response time. They always make it a point to be available for their clients when they need them.

The great service that Tanner Pest Control provides has led to referrals and online reviews, which are the keys to growth at Tanner Pest Control. In fact, they’ve seen so much business from referrals and reviews that they haven’t had to do any other marketing for the last eight years.

We asked Steve what advice he has for other business owners looking to grow their business and build their online reputation. Here are his words of wisdom:

“Try to get five-star reviews. In this day and age, that’s how people make their decisions.”


Congratulations to the team at Tanner Pest Control for being a 2018 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Steve, for taking the time to speak with us!

Arizona’s Top Rated Local® Pest Control Award Winner: Invader Pest Management

Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that Invader Pest Management is a 2018 award winner!

With excellent online reviews and a high Rating Score™ of 99.56, Invader Pest Management is not only one of the top three pest control businesses in the state of Arizona, but also one of the top 100 businesses in the entire state. We scoured the internet to find two reviews that we truly believe exemplify Invader Pest Management’s dedication to serving their customers. Here they are:

“They always show up, do what they need to do, and communicate anything they need to address. It’s so nice to have someone come by when they are supposed to and get things done! It makes both of our jobs easier! They are so great with answering any questions you may have and point you in the right direction if you need more work done or have any more questions. Always a great experience.” -Veronica

“We have been using Invader Pest Management for a few months now, and they have been awesome! When we first noticed scorpions around our home, we called them and they set us up with an appointment right away. Our technician today was extremely nice and did a great job, as they always do. Also, as usual, he said to call them if we find any new pests. We appreciate how friendly and thorough everyone has been!” -Vanessa

Not Your Average Pest Management Company

Owner and president of Invader Pest Management, Fred Willey, took a moment to speak with us about his business’ phenomenal online reputation. When we asked what made his business different from other pest control companies in Arizona, he said, “I ask myself that every day. We spend extra time [training all of our technicians who are already] trained and [have] multiple certifications. Each one is Green Pro certified, Quality Pro Certified, and Quality Pro Schools Certified. On top of that, we train our techs on the best ways to interact with our customers. We focus on our customer service.”

Invader Pest Management’s success certainly isn’t by accident. In fact, they’ve been perfecting their craft for decades. In Fred’s words, “We have been in business for 25 years, and are proud of that. We can help with any level of pest or termination, both residential and commercial. We are happy to travel for the right job.”

Building Success By Keeping With The Times

Fred made it clear to us that utilizing the internet as a marketing source is incredibly important for any modern business. Here’s his advice to other businesses looking to improve their online reputation:
“Number one: Understand that things change frequently online. Number two: Be fresh. We started a blog containing information we feel will benefit our customers. As an authority, we want to help our customers with blogs designed to help them utilize our knowledge.”


Congratulations to the team at Invader Pest Management on being a 2018 Top Rated Local award winner!

Utah’s Top Rated Local® Pest Control Award Winner: Western Pest Control

With over 100 online reviews from happy customers on a wide variety of sites, it is truly no wonder that Western Pest Control is one of our 2018 award winners. These reviews have given them a terrific 95.77 Rating Score™ and a wonderful online reputation. Here are just a few of the awesome things Western Pest Control customers had to say about them:

“This operation is exceptional. [Our technician] did a great job. We received a reminder call the day before he came out. While at our property, he wore a uniform, hat, and name badge. When he was done with his work, he sent us an email with his photo ID letting us know the work was completed. We admire the company and its consistent communication. We admire [our technician] for his excellent customer service. Our trust level is high. Our satisfaction level is high.” -Dennis F.

“[A technician] came and sprayed at my house today. He called 10 minutes before he came and was very easy to talk to and did a great job. Western Pest Control was easy to work with and schedule. I originally scheduled them on Thursday and had a last-minute conflict and called the office. They rescheduled me for the next day at the time that worked for me. Overall, a great company.” -Chris H.

“[One of the team members] at Western Pest Control completed a service [for me] today. He was detailed and remedied pests that were on the outskirts of our property – without even being asked to. He was courteous and professional. I highly recommend this company for all pest control needs!” -Dana B.

Not Your Average Pest Control Company

Michelle, the office manager of Western Pest Control, took some time to chat with us about the phenomenal service they provide to their customers and the online reputation they’ve built up because of it. As an award-winning company, it is apparent that Western Pest Control is one of a kind. In Michelle’s own words, “We are a happy, positive and upbeat crew. Wade, the owner, cares a lot about the community, and his main drive is to spread cheer and take care of those in his community.” She went on to say, “We love to improve peoples’ quality of life and help them enjoy their time at home without pests! We really look to help people lead a better quality of life!”

Building Success Through Trust and a Great Team.

When we asked Michelle what her business’ secret to a strong online reputation is, she credited it entirely to their team. “We employ happy go-getters! [Our] technicians are fantastic, and our customers are loyal!” She also offered this short and sweet advice to any and all companies looking to improve or build their online reputation:

Utah’s Top Rated Local® Pest Control Award Winner: Pickett Pest Control

Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that Pickett Pest Control is a 2018 award winner!

Thanks to their exemplary work and impressive 96.00 Rating Score™, Pickett Pest Control has placed in the top 10 pest control companies in the entire state of Utah. They’ve received tons of positive reviews over the years, across a variety of review platforms. Here are a couple that we believe really exemplify their business:

“I was referred to them by my brother. I usually take care of pest control myself, but I moved into a house that had a lot of spiders and mice. It was a bigger job than I was qualified for. [It had] been eight months [and I] didn’t know what it was. They recognized it right away and dealt with it. I watched him from inside the house as he did the last treatment outside and I commented to my wife that I loved how thorough and detailed the guy was. He clearly cares about doing a great job. I highly recommend them. They are great!” -Jeremy D.

“Bryce and his team are always so friendly. They get the job done quickly without interrupting my life, but always let me know exactly what to expect and do. I have used them for 2 years! Bryce is knowledgeable and his prices are the best.” -Aaron H.

Not Your Average Pest Control Company

Any business that has such a phenomenal online reputation has to have something that sets them apart so much. For Pickett Pest Control, this quality seems to be unmatched customer service. The Pickett team truly enjoys the challenge pest control provides, and they take true pride in providing a much-needed service to their clients.

When we asked owner, Bryce Pickett, what sets his business apart from other pest control services in the area, Bryce said, “We have the strongest guarantee in the business. We back up everything we do with our ‘no bull’ guarantee. If you’re not happy with anything we’ve done, we don’t just give you a refund — we give you an extra $25 for your time and trouble. We also make sure that we are using state-of-the-art products [that are] the least toxic available [and] still effective.”

Building Success Through Service and Communication

What’s their secret to success? If you ask Bryce, it’s simple. “Focus on customer service. One of the big ways we got a lot of those reviews was through sending an email to every customer asking them to review us,” he says. The Pickett Pest Control team epitomizes dedication to service, providing fast and convenient pest control to the Vernal area without sacrificing attention to detail. This, alongside a can-do attitude and a willingness to go the extra mile, has built them a fabulous online reputation.

We asked Bryce if he had any advice for other businesses working on their online reputation. This is what he said:

“Constantly be asking for reviews. We have people that try to tip us, and we ask for a review instead. We do a quarterly review with every client, and we ask every time.”


Congratulations to the team at Pickett Pest Control for being a 2018 Top Rated Local award winner!

Arizona’s Top Rated Local® Pest Control Companies Award Winner: Irish Pest, Weeds & Termite

Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that, thanks to their amazing Rating Score™, Irish Pest, Weeds & Termite is a 2018 two-time award-winning pest control company in Arizona!

Whether Arizonians are dealing with pesky weeds, termites or pests, there’s one option that stands above the rest — Irish Pest, Weeds & Termite.

Irish Pest, Weeds & Termite is dedicated to providing services their clients can trust, and that dedication has helped them receive more than 100 positive reviews and earn two Top Rated Local awards in 2018. Here’s just one of their many five-star reviews:

“Irish Pest was so quick to send a technician out. Ron was very friendly and efficient, explaining everything he was doing. He also had lots of advice for us, seeing as we are new to Arizona. We will definitely be using them again if needed!” – Jeanine Gooch

Every company would love to get the kind of reviews that Irish Pest, Weeds & Termite have earned, so we sat down with Owner, Irish Doherty, to find out how they did it.

What is your secret to such a strong online reputation?

Before every service is completed, we make it a point to ask the client if they have any problems or concerns. Additionally, we always let the client know exactly what we did for them, and we encourage every client to write a review.

What makes you different? In other words, if you had one minute to sell somebody on why they should choose you, what would you say?

We offer a lifetime warranty for our services — no other company in the business does this. We also carry more licenses than any other company in our industry. We don’t force our clients into contracts or ask them to pay start-up fees — instead, we offer a price-lock guarantee. We also have a loyalty referral program.

Why do you do what you do? In other words, what is your mission and/or how do you attempt to make the world a better place?

We help to solve a lot of phobias that our clients have. We are passionate about helping people fix their problems. We’ll also do everything we can to ensure that our service stands out, including helping clients bring in groceries and providing coloring books for their kids.

Outside of building a strong online reputation, what else do you do to market and grow your business?

We’ve tried SEO in the past, but we did not see an increase in sales. We do a little bit of marketing on social media, but other than that, we grow our business through word-of-mouth referrals.

What advice do you have for other businesses trying to build a strong online reputation and grow their business?

Treat your customers like they are family.


Thank you so much, Irish, for taking the time to share your wisdom with us, and congratulations to you and the whole team at Irish Pest, Weeds & Termite on winning two Top Rated Local awards in 2018!

If you’re looking for pest control services you can trust in Arizona, we highly recommend Irish Pest, Weeds & Termite. Visit their site today!

They’ve had lots of great reviews over the years, helping them to achieve this score. Here are a couple of our favorites:

“I am an apartment building owner. I have used Colorado Pest Management since 2009 on many occasions. I don’t know what I would have done without them. They get the job done right and quickly every time. I recommend them very highly.” -John

“I have used them personally for my own home and for my rental properties. They are educated, informed, and on time. They educate the tenants, and they are flexible in their scheduling. Their team is professional, and they are very consistent in their approach. I don’t use anyone else.” -Stuart

Owner, Cindy Lepinski, sat down with us to discuss her business’ online reputation and success. She had the following to say:

What is your secret to such a strong online reputation?

We follow up and treat people how they want to be treated. We really value ethical interaction with our clients, and we go above and beyond to exceed expectations. People appreciate our hands-on approach and, in return, review us based on their experience.

What makes you different? In other words, if you had one minute to sell somebody on why they should choose you, what would you say?

We’re family-owned and -operated. We provide a much higher level of service that the larger corporations in our space cannot deliver. We’re able to deliver the individual attention our clients need, and we take pride in answering any and all questions they have, so that they can be educated on the process. The money stays local here in Colorado. We give back every single chance we get and offer a wide variety of services and pricing to our clients.

Why do you do what you do? In other words, what is your mission and/or how do you attempt to make the world a better place?

We want to take care of people’s pests and provide them with something that will really make their life better. In many ways, we’re helping people’s health, family, property, and pets.

Outside of building a strong online reputation, what else do you do to market and grow your business?

We work with Marketing 360®! Our marketing executive contacts us on a regular basis, and we have great conversations. I’ve worked with other marketing companies before, and never had this level of service.

What advice do you have for other businesses trying to build a strong online reputation and grow their business?

Don’t try to do it yourself. Focus on your business and let an expert do it for you!


Thank you for speaking with us, Cindy! Congratulations to you and your entire team on your 2018 Top Rated Local award!

Colorado’s Top Rated Local® Pest Control Company Award Winner: ShOO! Wildlife and Pest Control

We are thrilled to announce ShOO! Wildlife and Pest Control as a 2018 Top Rated Local® award winner!

They earned this honor by getting so many wonderful reviews online that they built a 97.71 Rating Score™, making them the number one pest control company in Colorado. Here are just two of those reviews:

“Jeff came by and was able to catch a bunny in the basement! He saved the cutest bunny from one dog and two cats! Wow! It didn’t take long for Jeff to catch the bunny! I am so happy the bunny is safe, and we were able to meet Jeff! Thank you so much!” -Rose G.

“It’s all about organic products and professionalism. Jeff is extremely knowledgeable and stays up to date on the latest techniques for safely and ethically removing pests from your property.” -Erik C.

We had a chance to speak with owner-operator, Jeff Mokol, about his business’ stellar online reputation. Here’s what he thought we should know:

What is your secret to such a strong online reputation?

Being ethical. We keep our prices fair. If there are issues, like rats and raccoons breaking into a house, we aren’t going to hide anything. We know how important it is to educate our customers. Some folks can’t afford to have a lot of maintenance done, and in those cases, we teach them how to do as much as possible themselves. We’ve been in business going on 12 years, and we know that YouTube is a major competitor since people can search and find ways to do these things themselves. We want to save our customers the time and make sure it gets done right.

What makes you different? In other words, if you had one minute to sell somebody on why they should choose you, what would you say?

We’re completely humane. Anything the state allows us to relocate, we relocate. We never use any poison and only use organic products. Also, unlike 99 percent of pest control options, we’re not a contract-style company. We work hard to break the mold by being customer-centric.

Why do you do what you do? In other words, what is your mission and/or how do you attempt to make the world a better place?

I’m really passionate about animals. After getting out of the Army in 2004, I joined the Denver Police Department. After seeing the stress it caused my family, I decided to make the switch to pest control. Often, animals need a helping hand — that’s what I want to be. I never want to poison the animals; I want to benefit both them and our customers.

Outside of building a strong online reputation, what else do you do to market and grow your business?

We do a lot of branding. I feel strongly that it is the most important aspect of our business. The logo is cute and catchy, like something a child would point out to their parent. The goal for us is to be nationwide.

What advice do you have for other businesses trying to build a strong online reputation and grow their business?

Stay steady. Don’t give up and make sure you have a backbone. Always be doing some sort of advertising. Give yourself and your business time and provide excellent service.


Thank you for speaking with us, Jeff! It was a pleasure. Congratulations to the entire team over at ShOO! Wildlife and Pest Control on your 2018 Top Rated Local award!
