Sunny arrived on time and was very eager to get started and fix the problem I was having with a horrible smell in my duct vents, which had recently been cleaned so was a mystery. He went up in the attic and checked then the vents themselves and even outside vent. Then he checked the furnace and blower then the kitchen vent, still a mystery so he checked my dryer and the conclusion was my dryer, so, I immediately called LG and they are coming out tomorrow to hopefully fix the problem. Sunny did sanitize my furnace blower to see it that would help and to kill any bacteria that might be in the ducts. The smell remains but hopefully after tomorrow it will be gone. I am very pleased with this company and Sunny was excellent, knowledgeable, courteous and genuinely a great person. I will use them in the future if I need any work done, very happy with how they handled everything from beginning to end. Sunny is a star in my book.

William arrived on time and was very knowledgeable. Not only is he a technician, but he is the owner of 3rd Gen Pest Management. Not only was he thorough, but he took the time to tell me things to do to help prevent bed bugs. I had a bigger company try to take care of my pest issues because they were cheap, but nothing was ever solved. Going with a smaller company and paying a little more was worth it and he is still reasonably fair. It's nice when someone gets the job done right the first time. I will have no problem going on service with 3rd Gen and I highly recommend them if you want quality service and the job done right!

Very simple and easy to schedule the inspection with Jerry who drove to the home in Marin county, and then returned for the follow up heat service just a couple days after. All together we had the problem solved within a couple days of our first phone call. There was reoccuring bed bug problem, another company using some environmental pesticide (for almost the same price) came twice within past 10 months and both times they must not have killed all the eggs as eventually they returned). Forget the big name companies who charge ridiculous amounts with not even a warranty. With sf pest expert, Jerry was very knowledgeable and offered us the absolute lowest price hands down and I contacted so many others for estimate. plus he guaranteed his work with an extended warranty so if any bed bugs would reappear then heat service would be redone for free. All done in single day. Also gave many tips for preparation and what to do to minimize chances of recurrence.... Of course time will tell but so far so good.

I needed to be out of town so my tenting was scheduled for that week. I felt that I could trust Jay completely with the safety of my home and to get rid of the pests we were tenting for. And I returned home to a bug-free home in the same perfect shape it had been in when I left. Thanks, Jay.

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 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.

How much does it cost to remove a mouse?

If you have a mouse in your house you’re probably quickly researching pest control costs. Mice, although tiny, can transmit diseases and also get into your food and leave unsanitary droppings around your home. If you have seen one mouse in your house, it’s likely that more have taken up residence in your crawl space, attic or basement.The national average pest control cost is $150-$200. Costs can vary depending on whether you need to get rid of a population of living mice or just dispose of a dead mouse (or full traps), how extensive the mouse population is, and where you live in the country. Here are some examples of average pest control cost for removing a mouse:

  • $150 for initial trap setup and inspection (and sealing of entry holes).
    • $50 for rodent removal service calls and emptying of traps. This visit can also include identifying and sealing entry points that were not sealed on the first visit.
  • Rodent extermination: $110-$350, depending on how heavy the rodent population is, whether the mouse infestation poses health risks, how many entrances exist and how many rodent bait stations are needed.

How much does it cost to get a pest inspection?

In general there is no cost for a pest inspection. Exterminators typically provide a free property or building inspection and then provide you with a written estimate outlining the necessary treatment and cost. The home visit allows the exterminator to assess the problem and let you know what your pest control cost will be if you contract with their services. You may need a termite inspection for real estate purposes. This will be a verified inspection showing that the house in question is termite-free (often done before a sale). The inspection may cost a flat rate, such as $125-$150, depending on house size.

It’s hard to predict pest control costs sight unseen due to the variety of factors that go into pest treatment. For example, a bedbug problem for one customer may be confined to one room and be easy to access and treat in one visit if the room is clear of clutter and the bedbugs have been caught early. In another home, a bedbug problem may also be confined to one room, but there’s a great deal of clutter, providing more hiding places for the bugs and requiring more spray and labor for the exterminator, as well as many pieces of large furniture in the room that need to sprayed. Depending on the maturity of the infestation, a bedbug problem may require multiple visits to entirely eliminate. This is why many companies provide a free inspection to determine pest control costs and provide you the most accurate quote possible.
