The service Gilbert provided was great. I had a "tenant & mouse" situation that required more than just "show up and set a trap. The "other" exterminator service was mainly interested in getting a long-term contract signed. Gilbert was concerned with getting the problem solved. I'm very grateful for his expertise with the mice and sensitivity to the tenant situation.

Joe provided thorough professional service, and showed a true understanding of the best way to handle my very complicated ant problem. We had them both inside and outside our home, in mass! We've tried for a year and nothing worked. When Joe came, after a thorough inspection, he knew that we must also have ants inside walls in pilot nests, as well as many locations on our property. If Joe had just treated the exterior, they would have been sealed inside the sprayed perimeter, and fled inward, really infiltrating my home. Instead, he located their internal nest sites, and treated with a product they walked through and carried back to their nests, delivering the pesticide back to the other ants. Its been 2 weeks, and every day dozens of new dead ants appear in the shower on the ledge, but at least they are dead. We rinse them away, just grateful that they aren't moving in and taking over our home. They only make it out to the ledge before they die. Joe is the only one who has been able to really kick our massive ant invasion! Thanks Joe! After 18 years of living in multiple properties in San Diego, which seems to be one huge ant hill, you are the only exterminator I'll ever call or recommend!

Larry is great and doing the excellent job to helping me eliminate the roach problem that is going on in my house. I wish I had known about him before so I would not have wasted so much money on raid sprays and boric acid. Look no further in hiring someone to help you eliminate the problem! I have an exterminator for all my needs for life.

So I seen some droppings in the backyard behind the garage & thought I had Termites. I called to see how much it would cost to get an inspection & come to find out it was free. When Courtney arrived I showed him the area & he pointed out that it was just cricket droppings. He then inspected the house for termites & found none & not to be worried he did find a couple of areas that had dry rot on them & gave me a quote & he will be doing the work this upcoming week. I am so far really satisfied with his knowledge & really fair price. I think I’m going to refer him to a couple of my friends.

I moved into a new construction home and immediately found hoards of ants inside my home. I immediately put out a request for exterminators and these guys responded immediately, had next day availability, were prompt and super helpful. I swear the ants just disappeared within an hour. Super happy with this company! Will be using them in the future.

I contacted this company because my house was infested with ticks. Main Sail Pest Control was ready to help me out. Within 24 hours they were at my house to access the situation and provide an estimate. The estimate was extremely fair and based on my experience the owners of this company are professional, attentive and provide a high level of service. They went above and beyond to accommodate my needs and address the issue at hand. I would highly recommend this business to others. Thanks for the great service you provided.

Morning. Greg came out to inspect my home in a timely manner. All my concerns and questions were put to rest. He explain the process and even gave me the best price. I shopped around and I am very happy to go with America pest control. I am now in need of an exterminator for quarterly maintains and will definitely give American pest control a call to see if they are able to beat other quotes I've been given.

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!

Mariners Pest Control was very prompt in quoting my job. I was unhappy with my previous Pest Control provider, and was looking to make a change. Mariners Pest Control provides a better service than those bigger companies by thoroughly inspecting and treating the outer perimeter of the property, and the technician also took the time to make sure everything was A-OK inside my home as well. We've had a problem with spiders over the last 6 months, and a member of my household formed an abscess from a spider bite that in my opinion would NOT have happened had I been with Mariners Pest Control – lesson learned. I'm so happy I found Mariners Pest Control. The customer service experience overall has been fantastic, and I feel they give a much more personal service than what I was receiving before with a larger company. I really feel like my spider problem is being taken seriously and handled appropriately now, along with preventing the usual spring and summer ant issues. Thank you Nathan and the Mariners Pest Control team!

    Mike Cassidy solved the rat problem that another exterminator could not resolve, even after a year of trying. Mike was creative, effective, polite, and always on time and thorough. I've already recommended Astro Termite and Pest Control to friends and colleagues, and I'll continue to mention them to anyone with a pest problem.

    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.  

    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.

    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.
