Barbara S. says, "I couldn't be more pleased with the job done. There I was... sitting on a chair in an empty house with roaches (recent property purchase) when I decided to reach out to Best Choice Pest Services. Leo contacted me as quick as a flash, and dropped by in a matter of hours to perform his initial treatment. Sure enough, 3 weeks later, it seems like whatever he did worked. And he didn't use harmful, toxic materials which was a huge relief since I had children and pets coming into the property within a matter of days. I'm so glad I found this company. Easy, professional, effective, and reasonably-priced! Thanks, Leo! See you at the end of August for the next session."See more

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with an exterminator during the COVID-19 pandemic?

Ask exterminators in your area if they would be willing to offer a consultation over a phone call or video chat. You can then ask them any questions you have about the upcoming appointment. Make sure to ask what precautions they are taking to keep everyone safe during the COVID-19 pandemic and whether they are observing social distancing guidelines. You may ask them if it's possible to conduct the appointment virtually or without person-to-person contact. 

How can I find out if an exterminator is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

Essential service providers during the COVID-19 crisis are defined by individual states, cities and localities. For the most accurate information, visit your official state or city government website to see what is considered an essential service. 

CISA is the government agency that defines critical workers on a national level, so you can check its website for more information. However, note that not all jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure. 

Can I use digital payments to pay for pest control services?

You may be able to use digital payments such as Venmo, Apple Pay, PayPal, Venmo, Square Cash or Zelle to pay for extermination services. Many businesses accept methods of payment besides cash and credit cards. Check with pest control services in your area to see if they have changed their payment methods as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Are there ways to be safe if I hire an exterminator when social distancing?

If you need pest extermination services inside your home, talk to the exterminator first to be sure that you both feel comfortable completing the project. Also, follow the CDC’s guidelines on social distancing. You can also arrange with the exterminator to take extra steps to stay safe, such as waving instead of shaking hands, staying at least 6 feet apart, using digital payments and sanitizing any common spaces before and after the project is complete. 

Do exterminators offer remote or virtual services?

Typically, extermination takes place at your home or place of business, but you can ask if the business is offering special accommodations due to the COVID-19 pandemic. If you come across a profile that states the exterminator is offering remote services, ask what those services include. But if the job has to be done in person, be sure to follow the CDC’s guidelines on social distancing or see if you can postpone your appointment.

Does an exterminator need to enter my home?

If you have an outdoor pest infestation, it’s unlikely an exterminator will need to enter your home. But if your pest infestation is inside your home, the exterminator will likely need to enter your home. Check with the exterminator beforehand to explain the extent of the problem, the layout of your house and see if they can complete the job outdoors. You can also ask the exterminator to video chat or set up a phone call to exchange as much information as possible before you begin the project. 

Do I need to leave the house for pest control?

It depends on the type of pest control service you require. Your exterminator can often tell you beforehand which products they’ll be using and where they’ll be applying it. 

If the pest control company will be applying toxic chemicals, limit your exposure, according to the National Pesticide Information Center. For example, consider leaving your house during application and ventilate your home thoroughly when you return. And always keep your pets and their supplies away from the applied pesticides. 

Talk to pest control companies near you for advice on what you should do while they’re treating your home for pests. 

How do you get rid of ants?

The best way to get rid of ants is to hire an ant exterminator near you. The exterminator can also help you find the source of the problem that’s drawing ants into your home. 

After they’re done treating your home, you can invest in ant baits to keep infestations at bay. It’s also important to take preventative steps to avoid ants.

For example, always clean up crumbs and wipe down surfaces to eliminate potential food sources. Regularly take out the trash, fix leaky pipes, store your food in sealed containers and seal cracks near your kitchen cabinets. 

Here are more tips on how to get rid of ants (for good).

Is monthly pest control necessary?

Monthly pest control service is only necessary for certain situations. For example, severe ant or cockroach infestations may require monthly pest control in order to destroy the infestations at the source. 

Talk to the best exterminators near you to get an idea of what type of service you need — and how many times you’ll need follow-up treatments.

How much does it cost to kill bed bugs?

The cost of bed bug extermination depends primarily on how widespread the pest infestation is and how many rooms need to be treated. Other factors that can affect bed bug extermination costs are the amount of clutter in the location, additional furniture that needs to be treated, and construction of the home. Pest management professionals often have rates for room treatments, which can vary based on these factors. As an example, a pest management company treating a 10-by-15-foot room with light infestation might charge clients about $250, while the same size room with a heavy infestation and large amounts of clutter might cost the clients $300-$400. Clutter and heavier bed bug populations mean more product and longer labor time for the workers. Rates will vary from company to company, and from region to region, but the national average bed bug extermination cost is $320-$400. Bed bug heat treatments are an alternative way to exterminate these pests. Heat treatments are typically charged per square foot and tend to cost more than chemical or non-chemical spray solutions. Although effective, they are not usually recommended for occupied spaces, as the extreme temperatures can damage televisions, window dressings and other home furnishings.

Eitan of Ambush was a delight to work with. I had previously gone with a big national “name” exterminator compan

Jonathan was great, communicated all information to me ahead of time and didn't pressure me at all regarding a quick decision. This was the very opposite experience I had with another well known extermination provider. The annual fee is slightly higher than others but the upfront cost was SO MUCH LOWER and the service is top notch so I don't mind. Another great find on Thumbtack!

I originally gave them a 5 star review. They were very responsive when I reached out and showed up on time for the job. They were professional and nice when they were here and that's what I based my review on. However a month later and it seems as though the problem we were having has gotten worse. Prior to their visit we would see 1 or 2 roaches a month. With our previous exterminator we wouldn't see any roaches for months after his visit and we would have him come every 3 months (he has since retired, thus the need for a new exterminator). Since Kurt's visit however, there has been more roaches than before. In the past week we've seen/killed at least 6 roaches. I don't want to take away from their professionalism, however the quality and effectiveness of the job they did leave much to be desired.

Eddie the owner is responsive, professional and took a lot of time explaining different solutions to me. Guaranteed their work, and we’re punctual and receptive. They Went the extra mile to work around my work schedule. Very impressed with the attentiveness and professionalism! Matt the service tech was polite, kind and punctual. I would highly recommend Hero Pest control. I hired them for a problem by exterminator wasn’t eliminating and I will probably switch to them on a regular basis.

Thank you kurt for sending ron, he was very pleasant and professional, he also explained to me what his spray did to the spiders and ants in my house. He also explained that its normal for bugs to appear after an extermination, but reassured me that the spiders will eventually die and i hope so soon! If i see less ants and spiders in the next week, will definitely rehire you guys in the future, thank you both!!
Gregory’s Pest Control was such a great experience. First off, they responded quickly to my message and setup was really quick and easy. I spoke directly with the owners son Paul, and he was very knowledgeable. The service reps were also wonderful and very pleasant. Next, I met with the exterminator, Jeff, who was a very professional and nice person. He was also very knowledgeable and explained all the projects that he had to do with my new home. I am very satisfied with Gregory’s pest control and plan to use them on a bi-monthly basis. They definitely deserve 5 stars! Great company

Luiz was right on time and was the only exterminator I had out to my condo that actually checked for pests... everyone else just gave me extremely high quotes and never even took out a flash light and looked around. He gave me a much lower price than anyone else did. The following day he came to treat my unit and he took his time going around my entire condo and was very thorough. He was professional and pleasant and personable and feel confident. I could have my landlords handyman come over and spray but I would much prefer to pay out of my own pocket and have Luiz treat my unit because I know it will be done properly and to me peace of mind is worth it... and thats what you get with this company is peace of mind that you are not going to have little critters crawling around in the middle of the nite! If i could give them 10 stars I would. They have a customer for life.

I only have one thing to say & that is " outstanding" in every sense of the word! I did not know how bad of a rat infestation I had in my upper attic until mike & Craig came to my rescue! It seems I had a family of rats, that made their home my upper attic! Mike, who came more than once insured me not to worry & that he promised, that he would get rid of my rat infestation, which he did after a week! He made more than one visit & removed some floor insulation , which was infected with rat urine & poop that caused an awful odor, even after exterminating & eliminating the rodents! Once he was sure their were no more, he sealed and closed up all the vents with a commercial grade of wire! As of today, I have very little odor remaining of the rodents & best of all, I have a 5yr warranty knowing I have peace of mind! I would highly, recommend this company all of my neighbors & friends in the South Florida" I want to say mike's knowledge was unbelievable, but most of all he was very understanding & explained in detail the steps that he was going to take to eliminate the problem! I was vey fortunate in finding such a reliable & trust worthy company! Thanks again to mike/Craig ! Don CAPPIELLO DAVIE !
