Pointe Solves Stink Bugs

Highly Recommended

Pointe Pest Control is highly recommended for their service and professionalism. We had stink bugs, which neighbors told us could never be resolved by hiring an exterminating company. We have not seen 1 bug since they started servicing our house. Keep up the great work PPC!
