Additional Notes

Complaint: We contacted the business for our problem of bee removal in our basement. They promptly responded to request and came the very next day for service, but sent in a local service performer who were not sure of what they were doing. Seemingly took care of the problem. But the following day we had more bees in our basement. So we contacted them to come back out and they said the problem should go away in 3-4 days. However they promptly cashed their payement and then since then have not heard back from them despite numerous attempts. They have not come back and taken care of the business and the problem has increased with more bees in the house. The kids are freaked out. If the managment will be reading this they need to identify better local partners. The local business name goes by Chadz bee removal. Professionalism would be appreciated.

Desired Settlement: Would like refund on the service. Will hire more reputed local business.
