Gilbert was very prompt in showing up to the appointment, had a cordial and pleasant demeanor, and even was able to call-out the issue I was having with dry wood termites just from the description I provided in my initial request, site unseen. It seems that my issue still falls under the warranty of another exterminator that has checked my place before I had moved in, so I ultimately did not contract Gilbert's services. But Gilbert even walked me through the inspection report from the other exterminator and took the time to explain a few things regarding the report. All in all, a great experience. I will definitely consider Gilbert's services in the future if the need shall arise.

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!

Excellent exterminator service. We haven’t seen a bug around in a long time including no more pesky spiders outside and in our garage. Love that we were able to have the safer pesticides used as we have pets that are extremely sensitive to chemicals. We continue to use the service and are very happy with the results.

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.

After having been with another (big) pest control company for 5 years, then experiencing what was the worst customer service twice in one week, we did an online search and immediately came in contact with Chase Jenson from Bull's Eye Pest Control. Within a half-hour, a technician, Michael Arnold, from Bull's Eye arrived and performed the service that we had been waiting 3 hours (this re-scheduled time) for the other company (who shall remain nameless) to do. Michael was very polite and professional, even that late in the evening. I especially appreciated the fact that he wore shoe covers as he completed the treatments inside our house. Thank goodness for Bull's Eye and their excellent service! Although the evening started off frustrating with the extreme lack of customer service and professionalism from that other pest control company, it ended on a positive note. Glad to be doing business with Bull's Eye Pest Control!

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!

Chris was customer service from the beginning. I needed service the day we talked, and, while fully booked, he was able to make it to my house at the end of the day. Very professional and personable. Less than 24 hours since he exterminated, and I am seeing evidence that his service has been effective. Great price.

They showed up when they said they would several days ago. The service tech answered questions I had & took the time to explain potential problems I wasn't even aware of. NEVER any pressure to do work that wasn't needed.

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.
