Here are just a few comments from some of my satisfied customers.



"I have been a customer of Andy Lockwood's for many years.  He  is a hard worker and easy to get along with.  He is a kind and caring person and treats the animals humanely and with respect.  He checks around the house to look for any signs of animals getting in under the house.  While he was checking one month, he found a slow plumbing leak  and saved us from a huge problem later on. He has given the gardener advice on how to thin out  shrubs so that rats cannot build nests. I have told many of my friends about him  and they are very pleased with his work."

"Andy is terrific for several reasons: (1) Andy is excellent at catching whatever you need caught. He’s licensed, extremely knowledgeable about wildlife and trapping, and knows what he’s doing from start to finish. I hired him on two occasions and both times he caught several raccoons that were destroying our front yard and posing as a health danger to our two dogs. (2) Andy is reasonably priced, as well as open, honest, and fair about his charges. He tells you what he’s going to do and what it will cost you; there are no hidden costs or surprises. In fact, the total bills for both projects ended up being less than I expected. (3) Andy is reliable and conscientious. He comes everyday to check the traps and he seems to be always working. Obviously he enjoys his job. (4) Andy is respectful and humane in his treatment of wildlife. He does what needs to be done, but he is never cruel or uncaring. (5) Andy is friendly and approachable. He likes answering your questions and explaining what he’s doing and why (if you’re interested). I liked talking to him because I learned a lot. Finally, Andy is also friendly toward dogs. He gets along with them as well as he does with humans."

"I just wanted to say thanks for the awesome job you did here at my job by removing the dead skunk underneath my work trailer.  Also my friend on --- said you did a great job at his house on getting rid of that skunk smell they had.  I will most certainly recommend your services in the future for anybody’s needs when it comes to this type of work, thanks again Andy."
