Ricardo was very professional and friendly. Getting to know him and his purpose in helping people fight termites in their homes was evident. HALO is trustworthy and thorough in what they do. I recommend them to anyone who needs their home to be inspected and even to follow through with any elimination of termites.

I used Accuracy Plus Termite & Pest Control at my house for termites and pest control. Joe, the technician, was very professional and took care of my termite problems as well as my spider problem. I would recommend this company. Gayle - Orange County

We have been homeowners for 14 years and have never hired pest control. We recently moved to a new home that has a lot of pests and wildlife. We were happy to get lucky with Ravega pest control. Marco came out asap and explained different solutions to take control of our yard. He offered us different options for maintenance. He also noticed termites which our home was supposed to be exterminated from the "home sale" inspection. Luckily Marco took pics and I was able to send the termites pics to the other pest control to come clean up their work. Thanks to Marco we feel like have a plan to rid of our brown widows and other pests. Would happily recommend him!

Outstanding experience! First, I contacted Manual looking for a pest control company; only to find out later in the week, I actually needed a termite inspection. So I had to call and let Manual know my priorities had changed and I would not need him. Manual remained very professional; he thanked me and still sent me my bid for the job along with his business card. I thought to myself what a professional young man! The following week, the termite inspector gave me a bid that had very minimal damage at a reasonable cost to repair. Therefore, I had the work completed. And... sent a email and asked Manual if he would like to come out and complete a one time spray inside and out we could then discuss a annual contract. I have signed his contract; all because he displayed a professional image of his company and himself! Looking forward to working with you Manual!

Great experience with this company. Alex, our inspector, was very accommodating and friendly. Work was done and tenting performed on time and scheduled within 1 week..even in the busy summer market. The Termites Guys even painted their repairs (which many do not). Nikki, in the office, was excellent. We had received our first estimate from another company and was floored at the cost given for repair work and tenting. Called The Termite Guy and their estimate, and subsequent repairs, were 60% less than our 1st estimate. Would absolutely recommend this company and, from now on, The Termite Guy will be our first call.

Ken just showed up today after we had a few dozen flying termite-looking bugs showed up on our interior wall last night. I vacuumed them and we called Acme. Ken identified them as harmless ants that must have somehow came in from outside. He gave us some good tips, no charge, now we know how to identify termites as well as what to do about other pests we have floating around here. Very helpful, professional, and knowledgeable. Also like the fact that Acme is able to repair termite damage afterward, something most others aren’t able to provide. Thanks Ken.

Active Pest control is honest, reliable, professional, clean and fast company for all your pest control problems from termites, bugs, spiders, bees, rodents, ants, ticks, and waterbugs. We got several quotes but was very impressed with Active Pest Control. They were fast in getting a termite quote to us. They were honest in the problems we had and gave us two options of controlling our termite problem. Van came out and inspected the termites. He did a thorough job of inspecting the termite areas and gave a thorough report of details of all the work that needed to be done. He gave us a good price and he was not pushy in trying to get you to do the termite work. Above all, the termite service was awesome from start to finish! I was surprised that out of all the other Pest Control company that came out he was the only one that came with shoe covers to protect our house from getting dirty. I love that extra attention to detail that they provide with their pest control service. I would recommend them to all my clients since I am a realtor and they provide great Pest Control and Termite Service with professionalism. Will definitely use them again! Two thumbs up!

Overall we had a great and professional service from Primex. When I sent out a request on thumbtack, Primex was the first company calling back within 10 minutes. And I guess that we were lucky enough that the inspector- Gio was around in our neighborhood; he came to do the inspection on the same day. The inspector was very patient explaining what he found as signs of termites' existence, what the solutions they had, pros and cons of the solutions, and etc. After the inspection, he sent a email with a report and a proposal in the afternoon. We were given enough time to think what solution we decided to go for. We liked not to be rushed, but to be reminded the following steps when we were too busy. About a week before the fumigation, Gio came to go through the contract, explaining pretty much verything and every questions I had to get us ready for the fumigation. On the day of the fumigation, I thought that I had bagged enough all the food and medicines that I needed. I though that I didn't need to bag the food in the fridge. Well,.....actually I was told that I needed to. However, Primex's people were very nice.....(I was tired of bagging and packing that time) helping me bagging the rest of the food in the fridge. So I could leave without worrying my undone work. After the fumigation was done, Gio came the following weekday to check and do the last liquid treatment on our fence. Fumigation sounds could be very stressful thing to do. But we were glade that everything went smoothly. Forgot to mention about the price...., we compared to terminix, it was about 20-50$ differences. So I guess that the price was reasonable. Grace from Redondo Beach

Our termite infestation was out of control and one of the things I definitely enjoyed was his knowledge of termites.

Yes, I think all homeowners don't like going through the process of getting their home inspected for termite, especially when you need to get your home tented. However, the Termite doctor made the whole process smooth and pleasant. They were very professional and did quality work. Great customer service and I appreciate them being on time and started working as soon as they arrived. Also, they completed the job as promised. I would highly recommend them. Thank you, Michelle-Tyla

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How do you get rid of termites?

The best way to get rid of termites is to act fast. Termites are a problem that will only get worse — and no matter how much you want them to, they usually don’t magically move out on their own. There are three main types of termites: drywood, dampwood and subterranean. Drywood and dampwood termites sneak through cracks in your exterior paint, nail holes, and gaps near windows and other openings and begin to eat through your wood. Subterranean termites enter your house from the ground up by creating mud tunnels. In all cases, they survive by eating the wood of your house. The type of termites you have can steer the treatment plan.

Methods of termite extermination include fumigation, use of pesticides, and use of natural elements that are poisonous to the bugs. The extent of your termite infestation will help determine the treatment method. If you have drywood or dampwood termites that have infiltrated all aspects of the wood in your home, the pest control pro may recommend enclosing the whole house in a tent and gassing the termites via fumigation. If you have subterranean termites, often the entire footprint of the home must be treated by drilling liquid treatments into the slab or foundation of the home to exterminate the colonies. In any case, once you see signs of termites, it’s time to take action and call a pest pro.  

What are the signs of termites in your home?

When you see signs of termites in your home, call a trusted pest control professional as soon as possible to handle the situation. Termites feed on wood, meaning they eat through the wood that makes up the frame, floors and other components of your house. Most people don’t know they have termites until they discover the damage done, because termites remain hidden underground or inside the wood they are eating. Keep on the lookout for these signs of termites:

  • Water bubbles in your interior or exterior paint: If you poke at what look like paint bubbles and find termite droppings inside, it’s a sign of termite infestation.
  • Frass: This is a fancy term for termite poop. Keep your eyes peeled for what look like six-sided salt and pepper droppings.
  • Mud tubes: Subterranean termites move between their earth home and your house by building mud tunnels. Mud tubes under or along the side of your house or foundation are a sure sign of a termite infestation.  
  • Wings or swarming near your home: As a new colony is looking for a home, they fly (swarm), then shed their wings and burrow into nearby wood.
  • Softening of wood or hollowed-out wood: Termites don’t like paint, lacquer varnish or other wood finishes, so they’ll eat inside the wood and leave the exterior finish like a shell.

Are termites harmful to humans?

Termites are harmful to humans in that they can eat a home from the inside out. But unlike some other insects, termites don’t carry infection, nor do they bite or feed off people like parasitic bedbugs. So while they’re not harmful to your health, they can be extremely harmful to your wallet. The EPA reports that every year termites cause billions of dollars of structural damage in the United States. Immediate action and treatment is the best approach if you see signs of termites. The national average cost for an exterminator ranges from $250 to $400, but costs may be higher if you have a whole house infestation on your hands. Here are a few examples of average cost:

  • Standard liquid treatment of subterranean termites: $3-$4 per linear foot. An extermination company may have a minimum service fee, such as $150, to come out and provide treatment, no matter how small the space.
  • Liquid treatment of subterranean termites including foaming and drilling into concrete slabs: $4-$5 per linear foot.
  • Liquid treatment of a 2,000-square-foot home for subterranean termites: approximately $400.
  • Fumigation treatment of drywood termites: $1,200-$1,500 for a 30,000- to 35,000-cubic-foot home. Pros measure fumigation costs in cubic feet. Fumigation costs can also be affected by the number of stories in your home.
