Persistence and Effectiveness
Clark has its treatments perfected. They work hard and keep pest situations under control. Their treatments keep customers coming back even if they left to try a different company. That shows a true testament to the effectiveness of Clark’s pest control solutions.
I have to admit, I left Clark to go elsewhere (just to get better pricing) and it was a disaster. I rehired Clark and the infestation is under control again. They do a great job maintaining. So much so that you’ll think you don’t need them anymore. They’ve got their work cut out for them with these relentless pests.

Reviewers complimented Clark technicians were on time to scheduled visited every quarter, and they were glad to see the same face almost every time.
Comparing the cost of pest control companies is difficult. Many of them don’t put prices online, and Clark is one of those companies. There are too many variables for pest control companies to account for when pricing, which keeps them from posting prices on their websites. However, Clark does offer free initial inspections, and they go the extra mile to make them same-day appointments. They also have been reported by customers to come in at about half of the big company competitors’ prices. They offer a satisfaction guarantee that is industry standard, but their website doesn’t state clearly about how to fix a problem if you aren’t satisfied.
- Free same-day initial inspections
- Reasonably priced according to customers
- Costs can still vary considerably
