William treated our home for bedbugs, after we chose him from a handful of exterminators whom we interviewed over the phone. Not only did he offer the best price and fastest availability, but also gave us the longest warranty to cover his work, which I think speaks volumes about the quality and value that he provides. He is also very responsive to messages (calls, emails, and texts), and highly professional in his communication, which is particularly helpful when scheduling appointments and getting questions answered. It has been five weeks since our home was treated, and our family is currently bite-free, so we are optimistic that this unwanted experience with bedbugs is now behind us, after only a single treatment. The fact that William provides a follow-up treatment included in his bedbug services does help give us additional peace of mind. I highly recommend Protec All Pest Specialists.

George is very professional. His team came to the property as scheduled and completed the fumigation in a reasonable time. Although the first fumigation didn't do the job, George had a two month guaranteed so I had him go back out again to redo the units to kill those roaches. Hopefully the second time is all we need. Thank you

Excellent exterminator service. We haven’t seen a bug around in a long time including no more pesky spiders outside and in our garage. Love that we were able to have the safer pesticides used as we have pets that are extremely sensitive to chemicals. We continue to use the service and are very happy with the results.

The best experience I've ever had with an exterminator! How many people can say that right? He is extremely professional & amazing at what he does. We had an extreme rat issue when we moved in & realized the previous owners had set rat traps everywhere, but we would notice droppings in several rooms & even on the dining table. Kevin found numerous holes in the outside of our home & on the roof, he patched them all up & set traps & no more droppings! He checked in with me daily & even came out again to make sure everything was squeaky clean. Honestly stop looking for anyone else & hire him. Beyond pleased! Thanks Kevin!

The service tech was very thorough and pleasant to deal with. He did a complete attic treatment to prevent termites as well as exterior treatment for other insects and rodents. He returned for treatment of bird nest infestation and stayed as late as he needed to in order to finish the job (even though it took him longer than anticipated to deal with my bird problems). I will continue to use their maintenance service in order to prevent the critters and pests from coming back.

I had him do the rodent treatment and was so impressed that I hired him again the following week for termite extermination and for another project after that! He is really thorough and professional.

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!

    Love working with Rat Pact - they were able to accommodate my schedule, educated me on what needed to be done to get rid of my rodent problem, gave me a great estimate, started the exclusion and set traps the very next day and have been back to check the traps they set. All of the Rat Pact guys were on-time, professional, courteous and hard working. I am confident that rodents won't be keeping me awake at night anymore... Thanks Rat Pact!

    I had a hard time finding a company that will help to resolve my pest problems. I found treebark online and I called them right away and I’m happy that they returned my call right away and needed to get done. They set a quick appointment and did a wonderful job. The exterminators came to our house was brisk. They did a thorough job; spraying all over through place and after that, they removed the pests. I saw an immediate result. This company was really in providing great customer service and care, the work they do for us is good and the price was right. Very reasonable! I’m a very satisfied customer. I will continue to use this service if ever I have a pest problem again.

    Three years ago we had a terrible Bed Bug infestation in our home. We initially attempted to get rid of them ourselves with home remedies; diatamaceous earth , sprays and foggers etc Then we enlisted the help of 2 different exterminating companies using chemicals weekly for about 16 months with no significant results. Although I was discouraged we continued looking for a solution. We had heard about heat but knew of no one that had machines. Finally, a friend of mine said they had experienced bed bugs but had been helped by a local company that rented equipment at a reasonable cost designed for Do It Yourself persons like myself. We called American Bed Bug Equipment and spoke to Vincent. He gave us specific instructions to prepare our home and the good news was we didn't need to discard anymore of our furniture as the exterminators told us was necessary for success. Well, we followed his instructions to the tee and in less than 36 hours we were Bed Bug free and have been for 2 years!! All I can say is if you have a Bed Bug problem American bed Bug will treat you right and get the job done.. Respectfully , Adetra Jones

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    What do pest control companies do?

    Pest control companies handle all aspects of bug, rodent and animal extermination or removal. Pest control professionals visit your home or office to identify the type of pest that is troubling you and offer various treatment plans — complete with clearly outlined costs. Once you and the pest control company have a signed agreement, the pro will begin treatment. Pest treatment can range from the use of spray pesticides and gel bait to live and/or kill traps. There are a wide range of types of pesticides, many of them nontoxic for humans and other small animals. This means you may be able to have your home treated for pests without harming nearby wildlife or your dog and cat. The pest control pro will carry out the treatment plan and, depending on the service agreement, provide follow-up such as emptying traps, inspecting access points, or reapplying pesticide spray if the pests return. Costs will vary based on the type of pest you are having removed and the extent of the infestation.The average national pest control price range is $80-$130. From a minor bedbug event to an entire home termite infestation, pest control companies have got you covered.

    How do you get bed bugs and how do you get rid of them?

    The increase in bed bug infestations in the U.S. is a result of increased travel, lack of knowledge about preventing infestations, increased resistance of bed bugs to pesticides, and ineffective pest control practices, explains the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). It’s easy to mistake bed bugs for carpet beetles or similar-looking bugs, so infestations are often not noticed when they first occur. Prevention tips include keeping areas free of clutter, regularly washing sheets and mattress covers in hot water (and don’t forget to wash the laundry bag, too), and vacuuming regularly and safely disposing of the sealed vacuum bag. Not everyone has reactions to bed bug bites, which also may be mistaken for the bites of other pests such as mosquitoes, so timely bed bug extermination depends on identification of bed bug activity. If you notice physical signs of an infestation, contact a bed bug extermination professional as soon as possible to learn about chemical and non-chemical (such as heat) treatment options. An integrated pest management plan may incorporate one or more methods.

    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.  

    How much does it cost to treat a house for termites?

    Termites are not only creepy-crawly, they can literally eat your house out from underneath you. Termites feed on damp and dry wood and can chomp through your house at an alarming rate. The national average pest control cost for termite extermination is $240-$400. Treatment costs can be higher for an extensive infestation. Here are some examples of average pest control costs for termites:

    • Liquid treatment of subterranean termites: $3-$4 per linear foot.
      • For $75 per year, a company may offer a maintenance plan that provides inspection of the property and renewal of the warranty.
    • Liquid treatment of subterranean termites: approximately $400 for a 2,000-square-foot home at $3-$5 per linear foot.
      • The price is higher for additional work such as foaming and drilling inside of concrete slabs.
    • Fumigation treatment of drywood termites: $1,200-$1,500 for a 30,000- to 35,000-cubic-foot home
      • Fumigation is measured in cubic feet because it fills the airspace of the home and infiltrates the wood that the termites may be colonizing. The cost of fumigation is affected by the number of levels in the home as well as the square footage.

    How much does it cost to get rid of cockroaches?

    Cockroaches are not only ugly, they are difficult to get rid of. Quick and resilient, they can be hard to get rid of without professional help once they have inhabited a house. Nationally, the average range for cockroach pest control cost is $80-$130. Extermination professionals typically provide a free estimate to determine the extent of the infestation. They’ll check for the main sources of the bugs, identify bug access and entry points into your home, and determine the best method for elimination. There are a variety of cockroach extermination tools including gel baits and traps, pesticide foggers, desiccants (which dry out the cockroaches), neurotoxins, and other pesticides. Pest control costs can also cover preventive measures like regular spraying and trap maintenance. Some regions of the country are much more prone to cockroach problems than others, so pest control costs may need to be part of your quarterly budget. Cockroaches love dark, humid, and warm areas and water sources, so place traps near your washer and dryer and under your sinks.
