They went above and beyond. Not only did they do the job but part was worse then they expected so the technician told me I should make an appointment later and they would come check to make sure the termites were really dead in that spot. Then he took the initiative on his way out to call in an appointment for me saving me the trouble.

Jim was awesome. Saved me over $10K in possible tenting and supposed damage another exterminator quoted me. Jim didn't even charge me the visit. Fantastic company; great customer service. Will be using them in the future for re-inspections.

    Great guy to work with. This guys is licensed and certified to do this type of work. He was very informative when it came to what he was doing and why. We had subterranean termites and he treated for about half the cost of my next highest bid. He drilled around the house and injected Teridor then went into the sub area treated all my pier posts and pads then scraped away the mud tubes. He went above and beyond when he also installed baiting station to monitor the activity to ensure the colony was dead. Initially I had Orkin come out and quoted me $2400 to do the same work with no bait stations. I called a few other mom and pop companies and they were around $1700-1900. Will came in and did it all for $900. I was spectacle at first because the price was low but after watching him do the work and walking me through the process I knew I was in good hands. If you have him come out just to give the estimate I can promise you, you will not need to go anywhere else. You will understand the moment you meet him why he is the best route to take. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME CALLING ANYONE ELSE.

    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.
