I received quotes from several exterminators & ended up hiring Inspector William. He is the epitome of professionalism! From the start, he provided me with the best rates and eased my concerns regarding my bed bugs nightmare. He made me a bad situation so much easier to deal with. I highly recommend him & his services.

Joe has been extremely helpful and responsive. I send him a text with a question, and he responds immediately. His expertise and knowledge are impressive, and he is very professional. Not only have I hired to solve my bed bug problem, I have hired him to do my monthly service. I e used Western Exterminators for the past 8-9 years, and they still have not contacted me to help me with this urgent matter. I'm grateful I found Noe and Venom Exterminators!

The best experience I've ever had with an exterminator! How many people can say that right? He is extremely professional & amazing at what he does. We had an extreme rat issue when we moved in & realized the previous owners had set rat traps everywhere, but we would notice droppings in several rooms & even on the dining table. Kevin found numerous holes in the outside of our home & on the roof, he patched them all up & set traps & no more droppings! He checked in with me daily & even came out again to make sure everything was squeaky clean. Honestly stop looking for anyone else & hire him. Beyond pleased! Thanks Kevin!

The service tech was very thorough and pleasant to deal with. He did a complete attic treatment to prevent termites as well as exterior treatment for other insects and rodents. He returned for treatment of bird nest infestation and stayed as late as he needed to in order to finish the job (even though it took him longer than anticipated to deal with my bird problems). I will continue to use their maintenance service in order to prevent the critters and pests from coming back.

We have been homeowners for 14 years and have never hired pest control. We recently moved to a new home that has a lot of pests and wildlife. We were happy to get lucky with Ravega pest control. Marco came out asap and explained different solutions to take control of our yard. He offered us different options for maintenance. He also noticed termites which our home was supposed to be exterminated from the "home sale" inspection. Luckily Marco took pics and I was able to send the termites pics to the other pest control to come clean up their work. Thanks to Marco we feel like have a plan to rid of our brown widows and other pests. Would happily recommend him!

I have never needed an exterminator before and was a bit apprehensive of what to expect. The gentlemen who was assigned to our home was Jose. He is an absolute professional with an added sympathetic personality - we had issues with our dog being frightened and Jose was very patient and willing to try and help. I purchased a continuing package and am looking forward to the results promised. I feel confident I made the right choice with Kevin O'Connor Pest Control.

I let it go for too long. Knew that have lots of termites until my real estate agent told me that I have to do something, He referred me Prime Termite but I also checked them online before hiring. They pocked every single wood you can imagine in my house sprayed their organic stuff all inside the walls, and did lots of repairs too. Depending on a day they sent 2-4 men,. It's always a good idea to get referrals, you know these online things, you can't trust them that much. Anyway, just my 2 cents for Carlos, Vic, Wallace, James, - hardworking and nice - Keep it up that way, you do a good job, nothing needs to be changed.

Whether it’s bugs, termites, or construction issues that arise from problems, we can always count on Prestige to be reliable. I highly recommend Prestige.

    Mike Cassidy solved the rat problem that another exterminator could not resolve, even after a year of trying. Mike was creative, effective, polite, and always on time and thorough. I've already recommended Astro Termite and Pest Control to friends and colleagues, and I'll continue to mention them to anyone with a pest problem.

    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.
