I called Sleep Tight when I discovered I had termites. I called around to several pest control companies and found that Sleep Tight not only had the best rates, but also the best satisfaction guarantee and time frame for service. I was blown away by the professionalism and effectiveness of Sleep Tight and would not hesitate to call again in the event of future problems. They are highly recommended!

I called them on a Friday afternoon and spoke to Tayo. He was very knowledgeable and sent his crew over the next day to give me an estimate. The crew called me since they were going to arrive late which I very much appreciate. I got a fair estimate and had them complete the work. I would definitely use them again for any of my future termite or bug needs.

Akita inspected our concern and Identified the pests to be flying ants and not termites. We also consulted him on black ants we are experiencing and he provided options if we would choose to treat. We couldn't be happier with Akita's professionalism, and above all else, honesty. When we have any other concerns or needs for an exterminator we will be calling Akita direct. Our first experience with Thumbtack was very positive. Dean

During a visit from an exterminator for another issue in my residential neighborhood, i was informed that I had termites. Orkin was 1 of the 3 suggested professional companies from Thumbtack and I decided to contact 2. 1 company provided a quote over the phone for service but Stephen, from Orkin, scheduled an appointment to review my home. After review, Stephen advised that my issue was flying ants and not termites. So grateful for honest professionals.

Had a problem with fleas that I couldn't manage myself. Ben was great, came out on a Saturday morning to work around my schedule. I was impressed by his patience and kindness after going through hell with the DAFB gate guards who went on a power trip. The price was very reasonable for the size of my house, was getting almost double the quote from other companies. Wofle Pest Control did not make me feel like I was dirty for having a pest problem, they put an end to my embarrassing and frustrating problem. I have not seen fleas in my house OR on my cats since. I would absolutely use their services again and will refer them to all of my friends!

Been a customer since 2005. Keith is always prompt and very thorough in his inspections. We had a big termite problem in our home and Keith took great care to make sure these pests don't come back. Keith has also helped us get rid of camel crickets, too. Living in the woods of Medford, we are very familiar with all the lovely little critters that also call the woods their home. Keith makes sure our home is protected from them all. We will continue to do business with him for as long as can. Dependable, honest, and great service coupled with an affordable price. Thanks!!!!!

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.
