Mr William came to my house to fix a bed bug, and ant problem. I was at first skeptical of the process he was doing, but he proved me wrong. Mr William did an excellent job by taking care of both problems. I would definitely refer him to friends and family if needed.

Before Orange Crest Pest Control, two previous companies inspected my apartment. The quality of service and professionalism of OC Pest Control was no comparison to the others. I would gladly contact Orange Crest Pest Control in the future and highly recommend them.

Outstanding experience! First, I contacted Manual looking for a pest control company; only to find out later in the week, I actually needed a termite inspection. So I had to call and let Manual know my priorities had changed and I would not need him. Manual remained very professional; he thanked me and still sent me my bid for the job along with his business card. I thought to myself what a professional young man! The following week, the termite inspector gave me a bid that had very minimal damage at a reasonable cost to repair. Therefore, I had the work completed. And... sent a email and asked Manual if he would like to come out and complete a one time spray inside and out we could then discuss a annual contract. I have signed his contract; all because he displayed a professional image of his company and himself! Looking forward to working with you Manual!

Thanks to Thumbtack for introducing me to Five Star Pest Control. Some rodents penetrated in my basement, damaging my kitchen faucet pipes and air ducts. Howard immediately responded with a quote. He came to the house to inspect, found the flaw, sealed what needed to be sealed, set up mouse traps and returned to the house to inspect again. Howard is very friendly, honest and reliable. I'd recommend him to friends and family.

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.

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.

Decided to go with a local company, turns out, it was a Great Decision ! James definitely knows his business !! They showed up well within the time given, explained in great detail EVERY question we had, even had answers to things we had not thought of. They came, treated our home and us with respect, took care of our pest issues and promised to be back if we see anything come back. Now days, most people cannot rely on many things to be true, but when MadCo promises, they really come through ! Great company I would endorse over and over again. Clean, thorough and integrity, will use them again when needed.

Gave Centrix a try after being frustrated with big companies like Orkin and Terminex. Centrix regained my trust in how a pest control company should operate. I didn't feel like another number in a person's route. My service was personalized and the customer service was amazing. I've used them twice now and have found a permanent solution to all of my pest control needs. Will be rocommending to all my friends and family. Thanks again for everything!

Valencia Termite Control came and treated our house with Bora care and orange oil because of dry wood termite infestation in the crawlspace and attic areas. I found them to be competent, friendly, and highly professional. Since I have pets, children, and older people living with us, fumigation is out of the question since it’s expensive (kennel fees, motel expenses, food and medication packaged, etc.) and time consuming. I realize that orange oil is basically spot treatment and may require more treatment later if there should be dry wood termite infestation somewhere else in the house, but I think it is worthwhile since we don’t have worry about breathing the lingering fumigation smell. I like that Valencia Termite is a small family operation with no employees or subcontractors, so I feel comfortable having strangers in my house without worrying about sticky fingers.

Guardian Termite and Pest Control is everything I need in any company I am working with. I am a little high maintenance and have very high standards for work being done. I am picky and detailed. Guardian did everything I asked for and met every detail and request I had. Prompt, very professional, competitive, and very neat and clean. I had a unique challenge and they worked with me to think outside the box and completely fix the problem. I am very happy with the job they did and I will be using them again.

    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.
    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
