"Last summer, we had a massive roach problem. I was very pregnant and had two other young children and I could not stand it. My husband and I were having PTSD from seeing roaches every night. So, we called The Guardian. Dale asked me to catch a roach so he could see what we were dealing with. We did and he told us it was an American roach. Since those are outdoor roaches, we needed them to spray mainly outside and do some work ourselves to make our yard less hospitable, like removing leaves from around the walls of the house and sealing cracks in doors. He also explained that the tree that recently fell in our yard combined with the wet weather was likely the reason they were so bad. 

Anyway, he sprayed thoroughly around the outside of the house and set traps inside. I was glad we were able to avoid chemicals inside (with other kinds of roaches we would have needed inside spraying). Pretty soon, the only roaches we saw were dead ones. Our roach flashbacks started going away and I had no worries about bringing a brand new baby into our house. I'm so glad that they took the time to figure out the exact roach causing our problem so we didn't put unnecessary chemicals inside and also could do our part in fixing the problem outside."

"Great business!  Got rid of an ant problem than nobody else could because they found the source - a crack in my slab! And the identified the type of ant. I also use them for my lawn and I finally have a thick, nearly weedless yard of grass.  It took a couple of years but the owner told me exactly what it would take and he was right!  I had let my yard get pretty infested with weeds trying to do it myself.  The thing I like most about this company is that they take time to thoroughly inspect and identify the issues before starting the treatment.  Apparently different ants respond to different treatments because they have different behaviors.  Weeds are the same way.  These guys are the best bang for the buck in my opinion."  Tony M.

"We signed up for pest control and lawn care last year, not really expecting that much could be done with our weeds but hoping that it might look better....plus we were getting a really good price because these guys discount for more than one service. Now it is early in the spring but we only see half as many weeds! Wow. Plus our pest control tech is very professional and inspects every trip before treating. We looked at other reviews and were impressed with what others were saying and they were right. We are very happy. Plus the owner's wife sends wonderful recipes at Christmas which is just plain nice." Jane Hester.

"We called the Guardian several months after moving into our new home. We had been battling a terrible roach problem in our kitchen and called them after receiving a referral from my mother. In my opinion roaches are the worst, and most common, problem that you can have. We live on a very wooded lot and no matter how many bait traps we put out they always seemed to come back. The technician came out and treated our home both on the inside and out. We saw a noticeable difference in just the first visit and with continual treatments the roaches have not reappeared! I couldn't be more happy with the Guardian and their level of service, professionalism, and courtesy." Jen B.

"I've been a customer for years and this is a terrific, dependable, professional company. They stand behind their service and their prices are some of the best around. I think they've been in business about 20 years so their termite guarantee is something you can count on. I love their technicians. I never have to worry about them in my home." Joan A.

"Great company to work with. Honest, professional and prompt. They took care of a roach problem in one of my rentals that another company wasn't able to figure out.  They worked around my tenant's schedule and he was happy with the outcome so I was happy with the outcome.  They handle all my rentals."  Tom E.

“Dear Guardian, We recently purchased a new construction home that had been sitting empty for a year. As soon as we moved in we realized there was a scorpion problem. We were seeing an average of 8 to 10 scorpions a day inside the house. We have a 3 year old daughter so you can imagine how upset we were with the scorpions! We called Guardian and they booked us an appointment the next day. The technician showed up on time, he was very courteous, professional, knowledgeable and he even wore shoe covers to prevent dirt from being tracked into the house! He was very thorough in spraying both the inside and outside of the house. After he finished he explained to us, if we saw any more bugs that he would come back and spray for free. Over the next week we found more than thirty dead scorpions and spiders and only 3 live scorpions. Because of the 3 live scorpions he returned the following week and sprayed the entire house again at no charge! Several weeks went by and we only found dead bugs. Then one night we found 2 live scorpions in the living room. We contacted Guardian and they came out immediately and sprayed a third time at no charge! That was over 3 months ago and we have not seen a single bug in our house! I have used several exterminators in the Bartow area and I have to say that Guardian is head and shoulders above the rest! If you have a bug problem that you truly want to eliminate, I highly recommend calling Guardian! These guys are excellent and I promise you will not be disappointed!”  Chad H. in Cartersville

Dear Guardian, I want to thank you and your service technicians for the excellent job and extra effort we have learned to always count on from your company.  We appreciate that you made extra trips out to our house to take care of our problems and you were so professional and courteous.  We tell all our friends about you.  Again, thank you!”    Debra in Kennesaw
