Comments: Elite 1 was the best price of the extermination companies I contacted. And Mario, the owner, couldn't have been more knowledgeable, professional, and personable. I asked several questions, and he had all the answers. He explained how termites "work," the different types of them, the chemical he uses to exterminate them and why it's better than some others that are used, etc., etc. He arrived at the time he said he would, was very efficient and accommodating. Will DEFINITELY contact Mario at Elite1 again if and when I need these types of services.
