What Our Clients Say

"Jer came by today to lay down some traps for mice in the garage and the house. He's a perfectly cordial gentleman who explained exactly what he was doing and what the cost covered. He even offered to spray a wasp nest in the garage for free.

I'd recommend Jer for professional pest-control needs. I know what he did today is working because I can hear the mice chewing away at the bait in the trap. Looking forward to a mice-free house this fall and winter because of Jer."

  -John Woodward


I’ve used Coutts Pest Control on a couple of occasions, for different pest related issues. On both occasions, the service received was friendly, knowledgeable, and as promised. The service was explained in advance, including the expected results, warranty, etc. – No surprizes. My pest problems were solved quickly and properly. The work was done right the first time and I will use Coutts Pest Control for any future pest control needs.

I would like to describe my completely successful experience with Coutts Pest Control. Upon reporting to Mr. Coutts that we had a “rodent” of some kind burrowing under our garage Mr. Coutts was on site within 24 hours.
Within only a day or so he had determined that we had a ground squirrel problem. He offered some alternatives to dealing with the problem and we chose one that ended the problem almost immediately.
My wife and I were most grateful to Mr. Coutts for his swift action in taking care of this worrisome problem.
I would highly recommend Coutts Pest Control’s services to anyone that has an insect or rodent problem.
Coutts really does “give pests the boots!
  Sincerely Steve and Jean McCulloch, Petawawa, ON
