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 company! John and Marcos came out for a housewide interior/exterior spray and free termite inspection. Thorough, informative, extremely reasonable price wise, and took the time also to de-cobweb the exterior or the house. Will be scheduling more service in the future!

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.

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!

Termites, ants, and bugs oh my! I Spoke with Jennifer who was a total sweetheart on the phone and she explained the Excellent Fumigation services, warranties, and what I could expect from their process. I learned that their family invented a few types to local treatments to be able to avoid tenting. Very impressive. They scheduled Enrique to do an inspection. He went everywhere and looked in every nook and cranny, crawled under the house, looked in the attic, and all around the property. He showed me where my ants were coming from and where my terminates were living. I was very impressed with their professionalism and great warranty. The service was great! They took very good care of our property and fixed a bunch of termite damage that I didn't know I had until he showed me the wood they pulled out. So I guess I'm set for the next few years. I know that if I see an buggers I know I'm covered. I would highly recommend Excellent Fumigation.

Primex at the direction of Gio himself is an amazing company. I was provided with all the information to ensure our tenants the process was sound, they would be prepared and the apartments would be secured. Gio walked me thru the entire process from start to finish. Because of his assistance everything ran smoothly. His crew is amazing. They are great at what they do. They are timely, efficient and professional. They did an amazing job putting the property back together after the tent came down. I would recommend them in a heartbeat. In fact, stop your search and call Primex today. You're in great hands!

Guardian Termite and Pest Control is everything I need in any company I am working with. I am a little high maintenance and have very high standards for work being done. I am picky and detailed. Guardian did everything I asked for and met every detail and request I had. Prompt, very professional, competitive, and very neat and clean. I had a unique challenge and they worked with me to think outside the box and completely fix the problem. I am very happy with the job they did and I will be using them again.

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

There are many ways to fend off these tough adversaries, such as heat, chemicals, and steam, just to name a few. Some applications are more environmentally friendly than others. However, the effectiveness and cost are not hindered by these more green treatments. So, as we like to say, "Don't let the bed bugs bite, ever!" Sharing your bed doesn't have to be unpleasant.

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.
