i will strongly recommend

Legion Pest Control Company (65) - 62717822

I employed their services, very good job and reasonable price.
Found that they are one of a few company accredited by Singapore Pest Management Association.

Think you can try calling for a quote from Pest Management.
But they are quite busy most of the time.

Sorry to dig up this old thread but I had to warn others of this particular pest control company called okie pest management. Which I tried even though there were no reviews of this company.

To keep things short: called them for bed bug infestation problem, pricing was so-so, but the the work done was lousy cos a few days later, I was still able to find bed bugs creeping out! Called them back but this guy name Jeff was unfriendly and spoke in a rude tone after I told him abt the problem. And he said if they were to come over to my place again, it is chargeable.. Wth??

Lesson learnt: only go to pest control companies with good reviews.

To be fair, I don't think it is possible to eradicate bedbugs completely unless you move house. Even pest companies with good reviews, how could you be sure that the reviewers are not paid or even from the company itself? Anyone can sign up to be a reviewer nowadays and sign up with many different accounts some more. In the end, it really depends on luck and perhaps WOM.

Even pest companies with bad reviews, it could be it's competitors at work to destroy its reputation.

Agreeable.. But in my opinion, it would be better to get the service from recommended companies rather than one with no reviews..

As for the okie pest management, if he had handled my feedback more professionally, I would have no complains. But the way he handled the situation shows the unprofessionalism and immaturity of the company.

Anyway it's past and a lesson learnt.
