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. 

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. 

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 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.

Is it safe to use an exterminator spray?

Exterminator sprays and pesticides are generally toxic, and toxicity levels can vary by product. Therefore, it’s best to speak with the best pest control specialists near you to determine the safest way to get rid of your pest problem and reduce the risk of exposure. If a pesticide is needed, it’s likely safer to let the pro spray your home. 

Keep these tips in mind if exterminator spray will be used in your home: 

  • Exterminator spray is not safe to swallow, inhale or touch. 
  • Leave the house when the spray is being applied indoors.
  • Ventilate your home by opening windows and doors upon return. 
  • Keep pets and pet supplies away from the chemicals.

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 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.

How long does a bed bug treatment last?

Bed bug extermination can last forever as long as the treatment killed all the bed bugs (and their eggs) and if new bed bugs are not transported into the location. Factors that can affect the outcome are how severe the infestation is and whether all bed bug sources were properly identified and treated. When working with a pest control professional, the EPA recommends you check and call references; ask if they offer both chemical and non-chemical treatment options, if they recommend both encasements and interceptors, and if they offer two or more service visits and follow-up. Bed bugs are tiny (adults are roughly the size of an apple seed) and can hide anywhere a credit card can slide into. They squeeze into cracks in walls, behind electrical outlet sockets, in bedding, and in other dark places. Learn how to prepare your home for a bed bug treatment for the best outcomes. Michigan State University shares some examples of possible reasons that a bed bug extermination is not 100 percent effective:

  • Not all sources (aka hiding places) of the bed bugs were identified during initial inspection.
  • Not all sources of bed bugs were treated.
  • The insecticides used were not effective or, in the case of heat treatment, there was insufficient contact time.
  • Infested items such as bedding or other materials were reintroduced into a cleaned area.

Justech Pest was professional and on time. They worked in my house in an efficient and respectful manner. I will not know the effectiveness of the extermination for a month or so however.

Justo was very professional from his quick initial response to my request, to meeting my scheduling needs, and in his servicing of my exterminating needs. If I truly have no more ants I would happily add a 6th star!

Tyler was extremely knowledgeable, professional and thorough. He took the time to listen to our concerns and discussed the best options of what needed to be done. With all the options out there for exterminators...we feel very confident in having selected Tyler as ours. We definitely, with highest regards, recommend him.

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

I am a Weston resident and have had a big problem with German roaches. I had fumigated 3 times and within days I started seeing them again. On a Friday evening, I decided to try to find someone ASAP because I have family coming in. I sent a message to 24 Seven Pest Control to get a quote and see if they were even able to accommodate me with such short notice. They immediately messaged me with a quote that was very reasonable and within 10 minutes they had me scheduled for a Saturday service. The exterminator's name was Julio and he was on time, professional and very knowledgeable. I explained to Julio about my concerns and he was very thorough and assured me he would return to treat a second time just to make sure we had the problem under control. I would HIGHLY recommend 24 Seven Pest Control!

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 !
