We emailed Paratex and Mei promptly arranged with Ray to come by for an inspection this week. Ray was able to come by the day after we reached out which was great. In addition to inspecting our place, he was very educational, giving a breakdown of the Seattle region and what to expect as far as pests go in our area and pointers on simple every day things we can do as preventative measures. If a pest situation ever arises in the future I will definitely reach out to him again.

I’ve known Ray for over 10 years before he branched out on his own. He serviced my house and 2 apartment buildings I owned. He is honest, knowledgeable and really knows his bugs & critters. I moved from the area 3 years ago and have missed him ever since. You will not regret choosing Ray as your pest service professional!!!!!

I’ve used Paratex for years now and they’re awesome! I’ve mostly used Steve for ants for our West Seattle home, although we’ve also successfully dealt with rats and hornets on other occasions. Steve’s a true professional and super reliable. He’s also fun to chat with and very informative about what I’m seeing. Paratex has always been very generous and direct with pricing. This is a great service that I recommend to all my neighbors!
