Mr. Robert came a week ago. I purposefully waited a week to give my feedback. The reason being is that I wanted to be sure Ben or Mickey didn't come back....and they haven't! I'm scared to type it...praying...BUT, "I'm mouse free!!" Mr. Robert was friendly, kind, supportive (didn't take my concerns lightly) and very thorough. He looked everywhere I asked JUST to make sure and it helped to easy my anxiety. Mr. Robert patched/filled holes, told me what to buy for my "control" stash, and he shared with my son why he didn't have to be afraid. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who has pest/insect control needs. Thank you Mr. Robert for making me and my son feel "home" again.

I really appreciate EJ’s Pest Control. After having another company cancelled my original appointment on the day of service, EJ was able to provide same day service. The staff were well trained and very professional. Although they were unable to locate the snake in my basement, they completed a thorough inspection of that area and did an excellent job placing the repellent around the perimeter and inside of the home. Not to mention their work is warranted for 30 days - that provides a great peace of mind. You should know that they do require a deposit of $50 to secure/confirm the appointment and the remaining balance is due after the service is complete. Pricing seemed somewhat reasonable: $195 for the inspection and sealing the perimeter and $275 for the inspection and removal of the snake. I am hoping the snake is gone, but I wouldn’t hesitate to call them again if he returned.

This company was very professional and was able to handle the pest control problem in a time matter. Out of all the pest control people that I contacted they were able to squeeze me into their busy schedule. I couldn’t be more happier and pleased with our service from them. I would highly recommend them and use them again. They did understood and took time to figure out where the mice was getting in from.

I would highly recommend One Stop Pest Services to anyone with a pest control problem. I called Mr. Marvin Goodman with an emergency pest control problem in my apartment and he showed up the same day and within a couple of hours even though it was a last minute call. He was professional and did a wonderful job. The problem is now resolved thanks to One Stop Pest Services. I can't say enough how happy I was with the customer service from this company and from Mr. Goodman.

I had killer wasps and needed immediate past control and Gino was very responsive and was able to come out within four hours of my request. He was very knowledgeable, professional, and promptness. He guarantees his work for 90 days and his prices are amazing. I recommend using him and will call him again for any pest control needs that I might have.

I found coordinating a service appointment was very easy via phone and email. The technician, Jeff, did a fantastic job. He showed me what he was looking for, he de-webbed everything to see if there were any issues I hadn't identified. He treated the areas I needed, and a few extra areas to be sure of the results. I was moving boxes in the basement later that day and pleasantly surprised to NOT find any live insects. This will be my pest treatment company in the future.

My pregnant wife discovered a venomous snake on our front yard while playing with my 2 year old son. I called Joe and he was very informative came to the rescue by removing the snake from our property while many other companies wanted to schedule a service call on another day. He also provided thorough and meticulous pest control service. I will be hiring Joe again.

Pest Quest responded immediately to my query about same-day service for a sudden, acute yellow-jacket problem, and was able to come out exactly when I'd hoped. Greg was on-time, found the source of the problem in only a couple of minutes of observation, explained how he would treat it, and afterwards gave me instructions on how to follow up safely with his treatment. Pest Quest is now my go-to pest control service.

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 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.

How do you check for bed bugs?

If you are concerned you have a bed bug infestation, look for physical signs of their presence. Bed bugs love to hide in small, dark spaces and typically come out to feed (generally on human blood) after dark — although they will come out in daylight if hungry enough. The Environmental Protection Agency states that indications of an infestation can include seeing shed exoskeletons of bed bugs, rusty spots on your bedding (which are either bug droppings or bloodstains), live bed bugs, bed bug egg casings, a sweet and musty odor (if the infestation is severe), and evidence of bites on your skin.

To spot bed bugs, look in and along mattress seams and bedding, in curtain and furniture folds, inside cracks or crevices in the walls, behind picture frames and mirrors, under loose wallpaper seams, on recently used luggage or backpacks, inside electronics, and inside clothing or cluttered areas such as closets. If you see signs of bed bugs, be careful not to disturb them too much as you don’t want them scattering to other parts of your house.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
