4 of the Best Pest Control Companies in Allentown, Bethlehem, & Easton, PA (an Honest Review)

Monday, March 16, 2020

Whether you are currently dealing with a pest problem or are just looking to prevent one, you want to find a pest control service that is effective. After all, the last thing that you want is to invest in pest services only to find that you are still dealing with unwanted creepy crawlies invading your property or making their way inside.

Joshua Tree Pest Shield When it comes to getting the best control, finding the right company really does matter. You don’t want to settle for so-so services—you want the best pest control in Allentown, Bethlehem, or Easton, PA.

Of course, we understand that choosing a pest control service can be an intimidating endeavor. For one, you might not have any idea how to compare one company to another. There are a number of different options—but what makes them different?

That’s why we’ve started the process for you and rounded up a list of some of the best pest control companies in the Lehigh Valley. This should help you weigh your options and choose the company that is right for you.

1. Green Pest Solutions

Green Pest Solutions is the local pest and termite division of Green Lawn Fertilizing, which is based in West Chester, PA but apparently has a very large service area (covering 3 states). Like its lawn care division, Green Pest also services Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware.

2. Viking Pest Control

Viking Pest Control is headquartered in New Jersey but also has locations in Pennsylvania, Delaware, and Maryland. In the Lehigh Valley, Viking’s location is in Allentown but services eight counties all the way down toward the Philadelphia area (with Bucks, Chester, and Montgomery Counties).

3. Moyer Pest Control

Like the others, Moyer Pest Control also has a large service area and multiple locations. Their corporate offices are in Telford, PA but they also have an office in Newtown Square, PA; Lumberton, NJ; and Wilmington, DE, and they do service the Lehigh Valley. In addition to pest control, Moyer also offers lawn care, tree care, and pool and spa care—and they delve into a variety of indoor services including pest control but also plumbing and HVAC, water quality, and heating fuels.

4. Joshua Tree Pest Control

As you compare pest control services in the Lehigh Valley, we’d love for you to also consider Joshua Tree on your list. We have transitioned into these services slowly and deliberately after a lot of demand from our clients who have already come to know and trust us for our lawn, tree, and shrub care. 

How These Pest Control Services Stack Up

When it comes to comparing the best pest control in Allentown, Bethlehem, and Easton, PA, all of these are reputable companies (and we are proud to be amongst them). They all have strong reviews and good feedback from their clients.

But you’re probably wondering what makes them different. There are a few factors that make Joshua Tree unique from these other companies.

A Local Service

Without a doubt, the biggest difference between these 3 companies is their size and service locations. While the other 3 companies that we mentioned all service our area, they aren’t truly “local,” the way that Joshua Tree is. Our company was born right here in the Lehigh Valley and has remained a local business.

Why does that matter?

The biggest reason is that we truly know the area. Pest problems can vary regionally and we see it as a benefit that we are based in the region in which we provide services. 

Big Enough (But Not Too Big)

Another difference with Joshua Tree is that we’re mid-sized. We’re not a tiny little one- or two-person operation as some pest control services in the Lehigh Valley are. But we aren’t huge like the other pest control services on this list. 

Being mid-sized gives us some advantages. For one, customers say that we’re highly responsive and that’s because we’re big enough to have a robust office staff. If you call our office, you’ll talk to someone—or at least get your call returned promptly. You won’t leave a voicemail that appears to never get listened to since you’re not getting a callback.

While we’re big enough to employ a robust staff, we’re not so big that we fail to form personal relationships with our team members or the people that we serve. We’re a strong team and we also truly get to know our customers on a personal basis—which is uncommon in this industry which is monopolized by many pest control giants.

It’s the best of both worlds.

Value-Add for Clients

An added benefit of working with Joshua Tree that differentiates us from some of these other pest control services is the fact that we also offer lawn and tree care services. This division of our company grew organically from customer demand. As we mentioned previously, we were already performing lawn and tree care work on our customers’ properties and they were specifically requesting that we add pest control services in order to fully meet all of their property’s needs.

Choosing the Best Pest Control in Allentown, Bethlehem, and Easton

Your choice in pest control companies is an important one. By choosing wisely you’ll ensure that you receive the services that you expect and avoid some of the horror stories you might be fretting about—such as investing in pest control only to wind up with an infestation because it didn’t work.

Joshua Tree teamWhile any of the companies on our list are likely to perform good work and utilize an effective approach, we do believe there is an advantage to hiring locally with a company that you may already know and trust (or will at least get to know and trust as we live and work here in the Lehigh Valley, just like you).

However, we want you to know that even if you don’t choose our company for your pest control services, that we are available to you as a resource to answer questions and provide helpful information that will guide you in making wise choices. We believe that there is nothing more important than supporting the people in the Allentown, Bethlehem, and Easton, PA community which we love. In the end, no matter who you choose, we want you to be happy with your results.
