My fiance' and I BOTH had pest issues in our studios. Even though the manager of our building assured us that his jerry-rigged "treatment" would do the job, my fiance's place still had thirsty bed bugs about 2 weeks after. Then my room mate started itching. The manager insisted that he would call "a couple of guys" to come in two or three days later, since he said that exterminators don't like to work on weekends. "That's it." I thought to myself when I headed over to Thumbtack. William was a Godsend. Polite, prompt and calming, William resolved both of our pest issues (turns out my room mate was itching from carpet beetles) a few hours after I initially contacted him on a Saturday. For William, this isn't just a gig to get him to another job--he really cares about helping people and giving frazzled people like me a peace of mind about their living spaces. He also excitedly showed pictures of the little beasties he nuked in our places with his organic solution and explained what to do after the treatment. William has also patiently answered my questions about pre-treatment and follow up care, and I'm looking forward to his follow up treatment next week. I absolutely recommend him as a pest control expert, especially for bedbug and carpet beetle removal.

Joe has been extremely helpful and responsive. I send him a text with a question, and he responds immediately. His expertise and knowledge are impressive, and he is very professional. Not only have I hired to solve my bed bug problem, I have hired him to do my monthly service. I e used Western Exterminators for the past 8-9 years, and they still have not contacted me to help me with this urgent matter. I'm grateful I found Noe and Venom Exterminators!

Professional, courteous, prompt response and honest! I called for an inspection due to bits on my arms. I'd saved anything I thought might be a sign of a pest for George to look at. His advice and insights gave me much comfort and his integrity helped me feel I could trust him. He even guided me to consult a termite specialist and didn't speculate on one of the samples. George is confident in his ability to take care of your needs, but never pushy. It turned out I don't have bed bugs but I would recommend Gorilla Pest Control if you are concerned that you do!

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!

Frank/Stratton Termite & Roofing Solutions, Inc. was great! He was thorough, inspected all areas of my home for termite activity/damage and then provided a complete report on what was found. He suggested reasonable options for treating my specific situation and didn't upsell anything unnecessary. Frank sent his report the next day and I was able to make a decision right away to use his company and services. Scheduling the work was simple, he was in my area on a convenient date and time and the work was completed and documentation provided right away certifying the treatment and providing a one-year warranty. I would definitely recommend Frank Martinez/Stratton Termite & Roofing Solutions, Inc. without hesitation and will use this company again should I need their services. Frank is very personable, takes the time to listen to his client's concerns and provided an appropriate solution to the problem that also worked within my budget. Very pleased.

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!

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.

Excellent Fumigation was critical in helping my clients buy their home. Their inspections are thorough and they even have great alternative treatments that many termite companies do not use. I highly recommend them.

I have never needed an exterminator before and was a bit apprehensive of what to expect. The gentlemen who was assigned to our home was Jose. He is an absolute professional with an added sympathetic personality - we had issues with our dog being frightened and Jose was very patient and willing to try and help. I purchased a continuing package and am looking forward to the results promised. I feel confident I made the right choice with Kevin O'Connor Pest Control.

I like how Joe inspected my house even though it took little longer to schedule their free termite inspection. The poor guy went all over and found only small spot on deck. In order to save me some money and not send their busy crew he texted me links where I could buy termite extermination materials and asked me to FaceTime him when I got those. As solid as I got the termite chemicals from Amazon Joe walked me through how to treat that little termite infestation on my home by myself. I spent next to nothing.

I was Real Estate broker for 38 years and the last 10 years of work, I always used and referred all my clients to Ed at Flatline. My clients and myself always were impressed on the work performed by Flatline. I never had a complaint from any customer but only positive comments and thanking me for using such professional termite company on their behalf.

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.
