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.

I am very impressed with the level of service from Falcon Pest. I have always used the "large pest control" companies in the past paying the high cost for services. Tom was not only extremely professional & thorough but listened to my needs and concerns. Highly recommend Falcon Pest Management & will be using them for all future needs. 👍

Mike of K.L.M. Landscaping and Pest Control did a leaf and yard clean up. He was professional from the start, he reached out to me to discuss the project goals and what they could do within my budget. His reliability is what impressed me most. After cleaning the leaves from my property a wind storm blew debris into my yard, his team came back for a second day of service at no extra cost to insure the job was complete. K.L.M. Landscaping exceeded my expectations with their integrity towards providing a thorough service.

Our experience with Akita was good all around. The office (Bamaris) was courteous, friendly, efficient - and sympathetic! The estimate and terms were also explained clearly. The technician, Brian, was friendly, efficient and thoroughly answered all our questions with straightforward honesty. He even answered some important questions we never thought to ask. There's no doubt we would use Akita again for any pest control needs.

For the last three years I have always had a problem in my home with ants. The first year I tried getting rid of them on my own, it worked a little but not completely gone. So the second year I called City & Suburbs Pest Control. This year I started seeing them again last week. I called Joe again. He treated outside of the house and used bait inside. And all I have seen so far are dead ants, also he provided a 90 day warranty with his job, at a reasonable price. I will refer my friends and family members to his company if they need an exterminator. Thanks City & Suburbs Peat Control!! One satisfied customer

My husband found a bug that looked like a flying termite online. I contacted Green Pestate yesterday and they were out today. The bug was not a termite, but we are considering using Green for a preventative treatment before selling our house this year.

I would highly recommend for expediency and competency. Steve explained the nature of an ant infestation, and how to urge them to move along and take treats back to the family. I will be using this service again.

I have never been able to enjoy my backyard until Final Bite came to my house. My backyard is woodsy and whimsical but I was never able to go outside with out bug spray and long pants. I've tried everything I could and have called a few companies but Final Bite is by far the best company I have had the pleasure to work with. They were very professional and patient with all of my questions. They thorughly assessed my back yard and explained the causes of my critter issues and what they will be doing to rid my yard of the terrible bugs. I couldn't be happier with the job they have done! Now me and my fur-babies can finally enjoy the back yard.

I highly recommend Simon McIvor and Beyond Bed Bug Control. Simon uses a completely "green" method. The spray and powder he uses are botanical, and completely safe to use around your family and pets. The spray is only for the areas that will not go into his "tent", and the powder is only used inside the wall outlets. The really amazing part of Simon's treatment is The Tent. I have a relatively small living room but Simon was able to set it up and fit the following inside : my 6 foot long high back couch, my Papasan chair, a basket full of blankets, a huge pile of throw pillows, all the clothes from 2 closets and whatever else we could find room for. Then he fired it up and the temperature inside the tent slowly climbed to 120 degrees over the next few hours. Meanwhile, Simon treated our beds. This included quality Bed Bug Mattress Covers with locking zippers. He did his spraying and powdering, and when the right temperature had been maintained inside the tent for the right amount of time, everything was put back and Simon vacuumed my house! He has a special vacuum cleaner he uses to make sure he gets up all the dead bugs and eggs. He also put climb ups under all the beds, and pest strips inside the bags of things we had which could not be washed. We had 14 large trash bags full. Those were to stay sealed up for a week. Simon came back in 2 weeks and reinspected everything, and he will be back in 2 more weeks to check again. So far we have not seen any signs of bugs. As for Simon himself, he's a great guy to have around the house for the day. He does all the work himself and he's prompt and reliable. He is professional and personable. Given the unpleasant circumstances, Simon was able to do his job and keep it light. I feel as though I have a new friend who has a "very particular set of skills", and I can count on him if I ever have this problem again.

John is amazing. He was really determined in getting rid of bedbugs from my house and he did. I finally had a good sleep because of him. He treated as if its his own house. He made sure he treated each and every corner of the mattress, box spring and carpet. He initially told two treatments but after I found one more bug, I texted him and he came over to do additional treatment for free. He knew all the chemicals he used and explained me the benefits of each. He even treated the electrical outlets. If you want to eliminate bedbugs from your house, this is the guy you have to go to.

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.
