Debugging Myths August 5, 2017

You probably read the book Charlotte’s Web while you were in school, right? Or maybe you’ve seen a movie with bug-like characters or plots. A Bug’s Life, Arachnophobia or Ant-Man, perhaps? Many of our preconceived notions about bugs are simply something we “learned” when we were younger, old wives tales or just myths. Let’s have some fun … Continue reading “Debugging Myths”

Stinkbug 101 June 25, 2017

  These little stinkers (and in this case, quite literally!) sometimes look like some type of superhero bugs with their triangular shield-shaped bodies. Their superpower? The defensive odor they give off when disturbed or crushed. Not too hard to figure out how they got their name, huh? First arriving in the Pennsylvania from Asia in … Continue reading “Stinkbug 101”

I have been with blue chip for quite a while, and they have never disappointed. Anytime I have any type of problem whatsoever I make a quick and easy phone call and they respond almost immediately. I don't think I have ever waited more than a day or two when I really needed to have somebody out. Their technicians are very professional and very thorough. I would so recommend blue-chip to my friends and family and anybody else that will listen to me.

Tony came to my home and inspected for bugs. We suspected brown recluses and were correct. He informed me of their habits and what to expect and then did a thorough spray of two different chemicals and then glue traps to leave behind. He also left glue traps for me to use in his absence. I was Very pleased with how thorough and informative he was for me.

I have had a few interactions with Blue Chip. After purchasing a 20+ year old home, we have discovered some insect and potential rodent problems. Blue Chip has come out on the same day, or within a day, to help address every concern. Each technician has been professional, courteous, and prompt. Thank you!

Antony is the best- he has helped me two years in a row. Personable yet professional. He really knows what he is doing and pays great attention to detail. I would've never known where the ants were coming from but he investigates until he finds the source. I like how blue chip has a 30 day guarantee in case any ants pop up after he leaves. Haven't had a problem with this though. Highly recommend this company!

Awesome!!! Great experience from the start with my telephone communication and help from Vanessa. Well knowledgeable , professional and courteous technician. As a new customer, it is hard to be optimistic with what to expect. Jake was our technician. He treated us with respect. It was like he was part of the family. I HIGHLY recommend Blue Chip.

I manage an apartment complex that blue chip is contracted with. It started off rocky, due to lack of having the same technician that knew the ongoing issues. Now that we've had a consistent technician that comes to us bi-weekly it's been an amazing working relationship. Our technician is knowledgeable, friendly, and extremely helpful. Previously I was told to call a rival company for bedbug inspections as well, their inspector was more efficient too. We've had nothing but awesome experiences with all of their technicians and the billing department as well. Highly recommended in all aspects.

We had a rodent problem. We tried Orkin first, but they only left snap and glue traps around the house. The problem got worse, and they were hardly able to trap anything. Blue Chip's mouse bait took care of our rodent problem quickly, and was safe to use around our pets unlike the stuff you buy at the store. In my personal experience, the customer service representatives haven't always been the most helpful, but the technicians know what they are doing and totally make up for it. I've only seen a mouse once or twice since we started with blue chip, and they've always come right out to fix it for no additional charge.

Tony and Chris were absolutely amazing!!! Very professional and informed me of their plans during my initial visit. They left me with instructions on how to increase the effectiveness of their services.
