Cruz is by far the best guy we have found for our rat problem!! He is punctual, friendly, honest, dedicated very professional, etc. He saved our home and our sanity!! We are grateful he made time on a SUNDAY to make sure our kids live in a pest-free home. He was very thorough with our home. Wouldn't consider anyone else for this important task. After hiring him for pest control, we found out he does fencing, deck, electrical and all handyman type of work. He will definitely be called for our next home "problem."

I had Bay Pest Solution out to solve my rat issues that I have been battling for many years. I have had pest control with large companies that set traps out which does NOTHING! I have also tried myself to seal but still no success. I purchased an exclusion program with the last company and not only was the work sloppy they could not figure out how they kept getting in. Bay Pest came out quoted me a price that was much less than what I paid 2 years ago with the other company. They found 3 areas in my sub area that know one was able to find. They also cleaned up the sloppy work from the prior job and rebuilt my crawl space door which was just wire meshed by the previous company. They also got rid of all the spray foam and steel wool the other company did, which in my opinion was just cheaply done and was a short term fix to my problem. I was extremely impressed when Rick the technician color matched and painted to hide the concrete work they did. These guys know what they are doing. They installed a one way exit door and I literally heard the rat go out. They are coming back to remove the door and sanitize everything since all the rats are finally gone. Thanks Rick for taking a lot of pride in your work and with your quick response and follow ups.

Brett and his colleague were excellent to work with. They were very responsive and proactive in assessing the problem. It was easy to get an inspection scheduled and the pest removal handled. I greatly appreciated their candidness during the assessment and their one year guarantee. Strongly recommend working with Brett.

B Green was able to perform all of the work I needed, from insulation to duct work to pest control. The other vendors did only one or two of these, forcing me to coordinate them over a longer period of time.

We live in a semi rural area and are invaded by gophers and rats. Ray has been working to help eliminate the problem He comes once a month to my house and also to my rental house. He works very hard and has cut down on the population of these rodents.He is always pleasant and willing My golden retriever loves him! He is always careful to close all the gates when he leaves . I do wish that Ray would alert me to the day and time that he will be coming so I could open the garage door for him so he can exchange the rat bait boxes. To be honest I have not remembered to ask him to call or E Mail me regarding this issue. Ray has helped me with my gopher and rat population. He has been coming once a month for over a year.He is always pleasant and willing. My golden retriever loves him! He is always careful to close all the gates when he leaves.I would highly recommend him. i would recommend RAy.

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.
