What I most love about the Protec All Pest Speacialists is their guarantee at 100%. And they mean it! Both Mario and William were available for questions, and are so professional. Let's face it. No one likes bed bugs. But Mario and William are confident about getting rid of them, because of their vast experience. Best part- these awful bugs in my upscale place were gone after the first treatment. Yet Protec returned for a second treatment at no extra cost, because they want to keep it that way. And I didn't have to do all these crazy things I read online. Thank you so much Mario and William. I now sleep without any fear that these unwanted pests are back.

Venom Pest Control took care of my problem without a hitch. I had traveled to Europe and came home with more than I had taken. Yes, you guessed, Bed Bugs. About a week after I got home, I noticed these marks on my arms, and as the days passed, I kept getting more. I went to the dermatologist and he told me they look like bites from bed bugs. I called Vermon Pest Control and they were here in a few days. VPC sprayed for bed bed bugs, and now my apt is bug free. What a relief!

George Castillo provided pest extermination at my home and rental property. He was professional and thorough. He showed up on time, explained the process in detail, and completed the job much quicker than I expected. It's been about 3 weeks and I haven't had a problem with pest. I couldn't be more pleased! I definitely plan to request George for long-term pest maintenance service.

I am delighted to leave this review for Sean Meeker, owner of Pest Shield Termite & Pest Protection. What prompted me to call was this: In the living room of my 39 year old home, I had observed a crack forming in the wall which had recently begun to open. I noticed the presence of tiny bits and pieces deposited on the carpet underneath. Without hesitation I googled Thumbtack for a referral and almost immediately Sean responded. This was yesterday, December 23, 2016; we scheduled for 10:00 am today and he was right on time. In every respect Sean was professional, knowledgeable, and his level of expertise is unparalleled. Of even greater importance was his enthusiasm and friendliness. While I had feared the worst, that I had a termite infestation, Sean put my mind at ease by identifying ants as being the invasive culprit. He then proceeded to do a thorough inspection of my home, including the outside perimeter and attached garage in order to ascertain the presence of any 'unwanted visitors'. What a relief to hear that other than a couple of ants here and there, all looked good. Sean's quote in terms of getting rid of the ants was very reasonable and affordable. It is clear that Sean is conscientious and persevering, and even more significantly, truly cares about his customers. My search goes no further; I feel confident in having Sean Meeker of Pest Shield take care of these unwelcome little critters who may from time to time decide to inhabit my home; in short, I couldn't be more satisfied.

I was thrilled to find Frank Martinez on thumbtack. I was do pleased with our initial conversation and reasonable pricing, that I was starting to feel this was too good to be true. I began to doubt my confidence in this man. I must admit he was very responsive to our concerns and did not let us down. I recommend Frank Martinez and Stratton Termite for your next termite fumigation.

I interviewed about a dozen companies before choosing one, learning along the way. I chose Ken because (1) he is an owner operator, not a salesman (2) he had a thorough inspection process (3) his demeanor was zen like coupled with a clear knowledge of termite control, a likeable guy (4) his price was extremely competitive, especially compared to a third of the pest control companies who said tenting was the only solution, for $6k. I give Ken a 5 star rating with one warning for those of you who demand punctuality. His arrival times were rough estimates. This could be because he had to come up to the South Bay from OC. But I would hire him again any day. Great guy who excels at his trade.

LANTY KENNEDY OF BUDGET TERMINATOR INC. IS ABOVE ALL HONEST AND THE MOST REASONABLE IN THIS BUSINESS!!! We spoke to ten exterminators who offered a "free" inspection...but not to be trusted. Lanty Kennedy is professional, considerate, straightforward, very reasonable. He does excellent work and we highly recommend him. Above all he is honest.

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.  

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
