I hired Chris to treat my home for ants and the first thing that impressed me was that he showed up early for our appointment. I was at work but my boyfriend told me how knowledgeable Chris was and that he took time to explain things in laymen's terms. I especially appreciate that Chris was willing to call me to address questions I had regarding the ant treatment we received being that I wasn't home at the time it was done. When I spoke to him, he also told me he found termites and we need to get that treated ASAP. I'd definitely contact this company again and would recommend it to friends and family alike.

Polite, professional and honest. Provided recommendations on improvements that needed to be made to avoid potential insect problems. In addition to conducting a termite inspection, he treated my house to prevent carpenter bees at a fair price. Highly recommend Dave.

I hired him to inspect a short sale house. Owner said all plumbing issue has been fixed. Alan found out major plumbing issues. He explained the roof issues and possible termite issues in detail. We had to drop that contract after inspection findings. He is very generous and didn't charge us for his service. I will use his service next time.

I had an excellent experience with Braman, with special thanks to Ben. From the very beginning I got quick responses to all my questions. I chose Braman after a couple of conversations with Ben. He gave me the confidence that I was dealing with a reputable, professional company that was going to deliver results, not just show up, do a job & disappear. My elderly mother's home had bed bugs--lots of them. I had to get her help even though I was 300 miles away. Communication & trust were really important to me. I talked to a number other companies that left me uneasy. Everyone had different opinions on the best treatment plan. Ben helped me sort all that out & provided advice that made the most sense. I had a question after the job & Ben was on-site the next day just to makes sure everything was OK. Erin in the business office, techs Jaime and Mark were consistently professional, helpful & thorough. I'd recommend Braman to anyone.

Glenn did an excellent job for termite treatment, and insect control. He is very knowledgeable, also noticed that I had evidence of mice in my garage and recommended approaches that would be effective while being green and not cause any allergic reactions to my family from toxic chemicals and fumes. He goes out of his way to make sure of his customer's satisfaction, is fairly priced and performs better than promised. All the annoying spiders and insects have disappeared immediately.

From the first, we found this company to be professional, courteous, timely and knowledgeable. They treated our home and family with care, and were able to address our concerns about the infants and pets in our household. They explained everything they did, and the reasons behind it. The problem was mitigated on the first visit. The followup visit addressed any potential problem areas, which they dealt with quickly and efficiently. From the owner (who answered the phone) to the two technicians who came to do the work, everyone we dealt with was polite and service was quick. If we have any other issues in the future, I would not hesitate to call them. Great company!

They had a great deal of information and explained the situation in clear and concise terms. They called prior to their visit as a reminder and they were on time. They were efficient in their applications and were kind to the tenants who had the issue.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

Are termites harmful to humans?

Termites are harmful to humans in that they can eat a home from the inside out. But unlike some other insects, termites don’t carry infection, nor do they bite or feed off people like parasitic bedbugs. So while they’re not harmful to your health, they can be extremely harmful to your wallet. The EPA reports that every year termites cause billions of dollars of structural damage in the United States. Immediate action and treatment is the best approach if you see signs of termites. The national average cost for an exterminator ranges from $250 to $400, but costs may be higher if you have a whole house infestation on your hands. Here are a few examples of average cost:

  • Standard liquid treatment of subterranean termites: $3-$4 per linear foot. An extermination company may have a minimum service fee, such as $150, to come out and provide treatment, no matter how small the space.
  • Liquid treatment of subterranean termites including foaming and drilling into concrete slabs: $4-$5 per linear foot.
  • Liquid treatment of a 2,000-square-foot home for subterranean termites: approximately $400.
  • Fumigation treatment of drywood termites: $1,200-$1,500 for a 30,000- to 35,000-cubic-foot home. Pros measure fumigation costs in cubic feet. Fumigation costs can also be affected by the number of stories in your home.
