This is a note to say thank you to Nick and everyone at Blue Chip who has helped our family solve our ant problem over the past few months. It was a great feeling to have our research into pest control companies validated by the professionalism of each and every person we have come into contact with. Nick has been especially considerate and has taught us much about how to care for our home in regards to ant control. Thank you again

I just wanted to say that ‘you guys rock’. We just had Blue Chip out today and it was so refreshing to have 1) a small window of time to wait for someone, 2) have them show up when they said they would, 3) be professional in every aspect, 4) know what the heck they are talking about, & 5) feel like you are not getting ripped off. Seriously, you guys run a great operation. Usually I dread when we have to have any kind of service at our house because you never know what you are going to get. I just wanted to pass on that I appreciate the service we received and would recommend you to anyone.
