Rick of American Pest Control is an extremely caring guy! We were having a lot of issues with our landlord dealing with the bed bugs problem so it took a while to get Rick in here. I had to cancel on him numerous times and instead of getting frustrated with us he sent me an email that said to let him know at any time if we still need his help! After the landlords guys failed. Rick stepped back in and came out the next morning to inspect the units, is coming back in on friday morning for heat treatment! I'm so excited as i've been waiting for a LONG time to find someone as great as American Pest control. He tore our house apart until he found a "sample" live bedbug! unlike other inspectors who have come in and found nothing because they hardly looked! I would also like to add that because of him, we are also FINALLY getting our fire escape bars on our bedroom fixed!!! He cant get his equipment in without that fixed!! Woot Woot!! THANK YOU Rick for everything!!!

Thank God for The Local Bug Guy. We have been loyal customers for quite a few years now. I never have a sign of ants or spiders after they spray my property. My service tech is friendly, respectful and thorough. His knowledge of other little critters around is great because he let's us know first what they are and what we can do get rid of them IF it is not something he can help with.

In general with the way society has become so detached and lost in the way we interact with each other I really appreciated Jeremy taking the time to educate me about my bug problem. He explained what to look for and what would need to be done in the event that I need his services. I felt like he cared about making sure I had peace of mind and didn’t pressure me to hire him. His rates are affordable and a company that I will definitely hire if it turns out that my house needs to be treated. Thank you Jeremy!

Dennis replied to my request and was at my house taking care of my ant problem within a few hours! He did a great job and checked in on me later that day and the next to see if I had any more trouble. I highly recommend hiring him for any pest control needs!

    A few years ago ...ants, everywhere. Swarming and into everything I owned. It was like a movie plot, every few months my walls and floors were covered with those little black ants and nothing I was doing was working. Ecoskan came out and sprayed a bait OUTSIDE, my dogs were safe to go out after 1-2 hours. I loved that! Ants were gone for months, no monthly sign up hassle, no indoor spraying and it was a bait, not a killing spray, which meant that the nest wouldn't split and create more nests. They were wonderful at educating me on ants and their behavior. And what worked to get rid of them. Not only that, they found two large nests of the ants in weird places and had to retreat a few times. I cannot tell you the relief I felt when I didn't have to spray raid or use ant bait anymore. When we moved, there were about 7 cans of various bug spray we ended up giving away...it was that bad. Ants taken care of! Seriously, if you have ants, call them. They will take care of them! Now, let's talk racoons that caused 20-30k in damage under my home. Ecoskan came out, located the mama and babies and relocated them. Not only that, they educated me on diseases raccoons carried and pointed me in the direction of getting my home insurance to take care of the repairs...and walked me through that process. They are amazing to work with, sweet as can be, professional as the day is long and when we moved from So Cal to Oregon I wish we could have taken them with us. I cannot recommend Ecoskan enough. Nobody paid me to write this review, I really really feel this way. This is a family owned company that I have nothing but love for. Yes, they are that good.

    I was very satisfied with the pest control service I received! I had seen a couple bugs in my house over the past couple weeks but as soon as we got ants I knew it was time to call someone. Xcel was very prompt and took care of the problem in a timely manner. It was nice to have a company that cares about the customer for once.

      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.
