RJS Pest is the best exterminator in NYC. I sent them an email and they called me back within 10 minutes. Their technician came to inspect, treated – and within 3 hours my issue was resolved.
After a long search for the right company for pest control in NYC… I finally decided on using RJS Pest. I am beyond thrilled. They are extremely professional. Thanks again and highly recommended!
I was looking for a good Brooklyn exterminator to help the restaurant I work for deal with the health department. I found RJS pest control on Google and they ended up helping us tremendously.
