Solicitors Scammers - Aptive Environmental

Beware this guy or anyone representing APTIVE. This company is notorious for canvassing "No Soliciting" neighborhoods with aggressive tactics like banging on doors at dinner times and up past 9 PM. They refuse to provide business cards or valid identification. Once signed up with them, they will make appointments they never keep, but charge you anyway. Better Business Bureau and Yelp has hundreds of complaints. If they come on your property call police immediately.

Another reason for security cams. People like this tend to take one look at ours, do an about face and step over to the neighbors.

Door to door sales=substance abuse problems
They need to get “paid” daily to get their fix

Also, they enter your house to see what you have to rob you.

Tell them to wait at the door, and call the police.

My wife let this man in our house and he fondled her. She complained to me later that night how rough he was. I hope the pest service she bought from him will at least be okay quality.

Aptive is a decent pest control company and they hire mainly college kids away from school over the summer and they do have a very strict zero tolerance policy for knockers. They can’t drink or smoke tobacco in their living quarters. You people are sour about another solicitor and clearly don’t know what you’re talking about literally see their trucks everywhere servicing houses

Right. That's the pitch, not the truth.

Aptive doesn't pay their door knockers, even after pressuring them to hit every door and harass every single person on every street. If you are dumb enough to sign up, a dude will roll out and spray a solution of mostly water in a few areas and call it a day. If anything dies after they leave, it will have been from old age.

It's fucking criminal that these cocksucking faggots are still allowed to prey on people.

I LOVE door to door salesman. I have found them incredibly nice and honest. Aptive specifically has the kindest salespeople out of them all! I have used their service for the past 5 years and I LOVE IT! They do a wonderful job getting all of the aphids off of my rose bushes and they do it with a smile on their face. I wish they knocked my door everyday!

Nice to hear from you all again. Door knocker hater, I’m glad to hear your wife I fondled is doing well still. She was very happy last time I talked to her. Very happy.

BTW: my trucks are gonna be out in the neighborhood tomorrow taking care of 15 of your neighbors. It’s mostly been the ants and the spiders. If you can here, I’m doing everything for half.

Aptive is one of the only companies that tries to get permits for soliciting in areas. It's like the number one fastest growing pest control companies. if you don't want em at your door just say no thanks and they leave.

I've had Aptiv come by. They do the usual shit about how my neighbor "Fred Fuckface" or whoever said to stop by. They say they're doing pest control and then they give my porch an eye roll as if it's crawling with bugs. I send them on their way.

Pest control is almost always a scam. If a fly or a wasp gets in, kill it. Without pesticides. You're bigger than them. See an ant, kill it and and make sure there's no food bits anywhere.

Only once in my life have I needed pest control. I brought something into my house that I got from a barn and unbeknownst to me it was full of fly eggs. They got everywhere really fast and the bug bombs I set off only worked temporarily. The pest control guy had products you can't buy at Home Depot and he fixed it in an hour. Other than something like that, don't bother with pest control. Just keep your house clean

I have a wild bush that needed attention. Aptiv came to the rescue. The Aptiv man was an expert; so much better than my ex husband ever was. He did such a good job that I could not contain my screams of joy at the incredible results. Now we have set up a regular maintenance plan where the Aptiv man comes and controls the wild bush at least once a week.

I always sound real enthusiastic and tell them we have this huge problem and I'm so glad they're here. After they get half way through their bullshit, I ask them if they can have someone come out and kill the faggots that won't stop knocking on my door. Awkward pause.... and I just stare at them without saying anything else until they leave.

Dudes didn't you know that these guys are more afraid of security alarms and security cameras. So, I did experience the same s**t as the author did. Similar guys approached my house ringing in a doorbell providing some services I do not need to. I understood that this is a scam from the first day. I did notify them that if they come back I will meet them with a gun. They returned on the other week and my wife talked to them as I was not home. I was really angry and I bought security alarms and cams from 1800doorbell.com and I wanted to record videos for cops to have proof that they are a pain in the a**. And you know what? Since I plugged in all security cams I never saw them nearby my house. I suggest you do the same cause nowadays are difficult times with corona thing people are going crazy.

Can't tell how many people on this thread are serious versus 100% kidding. I've worked at Aptive 3 years, have always been paid, and have had no issues. As mentioned before, Aptive gets all required permits before knocking in a city and doesn't break any laws, knocking on doors isn't illegal.

If you don't want to talk to someone at your door, don't open it or ask them to leave. Does the trick every time, be an adult about it.

I’m 32 and take pride in what I do. Door knocking isn’t illegal. Aptive gets all required permits and is one of the best pest control companies in the nation. If you don’t want to talk with a solicitor then just don’t answer your door. Or, maybe answer it, have an open mind, and you may just get a great deal for service from a great company.

Aptive has been formally banned in my neighborhood by the HOA for aggressive sales practices, refusing to leave and ripping people off. There is no soliciting allowed here but they say they don't care and just keep pushing their crap. My neighbor three doors down says his underage daughter was fondled at the door by an Aptive guy. He said Aptive eventually fired the guy but only after he made a huge stink about it.

We were told to call the cops immediately if we see them on our street.

Invite the Aptive door solicitor in for a chat, and once inside, ask the person not to touch anything because everyone in the house is infected with COVID
