I am very pleased with the service that Cimex4u provided. Robert was on time and very professional. He took his time to examine everything and provided good information. He made himself available, so that we can call at anytime if we needed additional assistance before he returns for the follow up. I strongly recommend Cimex4u for you pest control needs. He is wonderful.

Hire this Company! I live in an old house in the suburbs surrounded by trees and bushes now and moved here from the city (apartments) where I never had to worry about pest, bugs, spiders etc In our old house now there is spider webs outside on the window and occasional spider coming through and silverfish from the basement. I don't like it, yuuuck Dave was nice and patient with me answering all my questions that only a clueless city person would ask :-) Very quick in responding, extremely professional and very kind person. He sprayed inside and out and will be back monthly for the season. I trust his work is great as they also give a guarantee. Hire this company and don't look anywhere else.

I had an excellent experience with Principal Termite & Pest Management. They provided prompt service, Bill didn't do any pressure sales or push annual agreements. He was sensitive to our needs and didn't over spray the house with chemicals. I'd recommend them without any reservations.

Prompt response, I think Ej and her crew did a wonderful job. I have had this bee issue for months in my office space. I tried several other pest control companies and it seems as though they didn't know what they were doing. Ej's Pest Control was able to come in, inspect the issue, give suggestions, and solve the problem. Fantastic work! I will recommend them.

They applied treatments to all our problem spots - outside, inside, and external shed. I will update my review when there's an opportunity to observe the effectiveness of the pest treatments.

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.

They gave us an excellent quote of $65 for ant extermination. When I spoke with them, they gave me a higher quote (can't remember what it was but it was more than $65). I asked them about the original quote and they told me that they set up an automated message that quotes people at $65. Ultimately, they said they would honor the $65 for being first time clients. When they arrived at the house, I told them where our ant problems were. He told me that it would cost $135. Again, I brought up the original quote and said we reached out to them bc of this good deal. They finally agreed to the $65. Well...it was a complete waste of money. They were in and out in less than 5 minutes. They put these gel bait traps down that we could have just done for ourselves and for much less. They didn't even spray. Seriously, they put 4 ant traps down, didn't even do the whole house, 2 in the kitchen and 2 outside - for $65. Completely ridiculous and uncalled for to charge that much for something we could have done ourselves. Ultimately I feel like we really got scammed and I'm incredibly disappointed in this company. My husband is LIVID. If the owner reads this, I feel like we are owed a complete refund or at least a discount of some kind. This work and service was completely below par.

I can't say enough good things - they take the time to explain everything, they are professional and considerate. Mr Roe even texts me ahead of time so I can let my dogs out so they won't need to go out again while the chemicals are drying. All my pest/rodent issues have been taken care of and they are on top of keeping my quarterly treatments scheduled. Very happy

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.
