Pests can be a constant nuisance in your home, and it seems that they make their way back inside month after month. Taking this recurring issue to mind, Aptive Environmental offers proactive seasonal protection for your property.
There are many options when it comes to pest control services, and it takes time to do the proper research when finding the right provider. House Method has investigated Aptive’s services and provided a summary of the business to help you determine if they’re the best pest control provider for your home.
Aptive simplifies pest control with just one comprehensive pest control option: the Four Seasons Protection Plan. This plan is designed to provide both active and preventative treatment. It includes an initial visit followed by quarterly applications once per season.
Aptive prides itself in using an environmentally friendly approach for all treatments and services. Its mission is to keep both your home and the environment protected throughout their process. The products used are child- and pet-friendly and naturally created, reducing toxicity levels.
All of Aptive’s offerings are included in this basic plan. Unlike its competitors, Aptive does not offer additional services such as termite or bed bug removal.
The initial visit includes both an interior and exterior inspection. This will allow the technician to develop a tailored plan for your property. They will also treat all cracks and crevices, spider webs and wasp nests, and treat the foundation of your home as well as your garage.
This plan guarantees the removal of pests within 30 feet of your home. The products are designed to withstand weather and will not wash away in the rain. While most follow-up visits will treat the exterior, the technician will examine and treat the inside of your home as needed.
Aptive will provide follow-up visits at no additional charge if you run into any issues between scheduled service appointments.
One downside of the environmentally safe treatment process is that it cannot eliminate existing eggs. According to Aptive, there are no products on the market powerful enough to penetrate eggs that also meet their safety standards. However, if eggs are identified, Aptive will return within 30 to 45 days to kill any hatched eggs and surviving pests.
Currently, Aptive is only available in 23 states. Check the list below to see if your state is covered:
While Aptive only offers one plan, the exact price will depend on your home’s size and location. We received a quote for a 2,000 square-foot home in Pittsburgh, PA. Under these circumstances, a customer could expect to pay between $560–$620 annually.
Aptive Environmental is accredited by the Better Business Bureau (BBB) and has an A- rating. They also have a 4.5 star rating from customers. Read what some of its customers are saying:
Michael K. on April 1, 2020, said:
“Aptive hires the most professional individuals as a part of their team. Caleb was very courteous, respectful and practiced social distancing while remaining very thorough in his treatment of our property. Over 30 years in my home I have had several pest control companies come and go, but without reservation, Aptive is the very best. Thank you Caleb for your professional service.”
Edward S. on March 30, 2020, said:
“Had my first encounter with them today. They were right on time, explained what was being done. I observed the technician working in the yard, it appears he did exactly what he said and reinforced their policy of any problems they will come back out.”
Victoria J. on February 27, 2020 said:
“I had a severe millipede problem in my basement. I contacted Aptive Environmental and they sent the technician to assist me and explain the process. He immediately set himself to take care of the problem and returned as much as it was needed during the 3 month initial period. It has been almost a year and I am so pleased with his service and pleasant attitude.”
Shari J. on January 10, 2020 said:

Aptive uses products that are completely organic. They are derived from Chrysanthemums and made with the lowest level of toxicity possible. The products contain natural pyrethrin, and are child- and pet-friendly.
The pest control company is owned by entrepreneur David Royce, who founded the company in 2015. Royce has created and sold three pest control businesses, including Alterra, which he sold to Terminix in 2015.
Pest control companies inspect, identify, and treat current pests while preventing future infestations. While Aptive offers only one general pest control plan, most pest control companies offer plans that protect against common household pests and specialty add-on services for termites and bed bugs.
House Method gives Aptive a score of 81.5 out of a possible 100. While it’s a new company in the industry, its modern, environmentally-conscious techniques set its treatment apart from its competitors. It’s also clear that Aptive has a good relationship with current customers from the abundance of positive reviews.
While Aptive’s safe treatment plans may not be able to address every problem, they are designed for preventative measures. Their process is made to be long-lasting to protect your property yearlong. Aptive also simplifies the purchasing process with only one comprehensive plan.
At House Method, our goal is to save homeowners time and money, so we’ve done all the research for you when it comes to pest control and remediation efforts. We highly recommend only the best exterminators that our team would use in our own homes.
We developed a 100-point rating system to numerically compare the companies to each other.
