Being a new homeowner, I want to make sure that my property is well taken care of. I have tried to take every precaution I can think of to keep my investment safe and I want to be comfortable in my home which ultimately means not having to pay a mortgage so bugs can live with me. Anthony came over yesterday to give me a price for regular maintenance on my property. After discussing his background and experience, I felt comfortable with having him in my home. He explained everything easily and thoroughly and did not try to offer me any services that I do not need. Over the course of the day, I spoke with several other pet control services both national and independent, but none of them seemed to measure up to Citarella. Anthony came back out this morning to treat my home. He was on time, and allowed me to follow him around as he explained what he was doing as he was doing it. He explained basic bug control and I learned more today than I ever wanted to know. He reassured me that if I were to have any troubles, he guaranteed he would come back out to re-treat.

He called us within the hour after we left a message on his phone. He came out within 3 days, gave an estimate of cost and length of time for the job to be completed. Before he came for the first treatment, he told us exactly what we needed to do to be ready for him and how long we needed to be out of the house. He then told us when his second visit would be and how long before his third and final visit would be. I would use him for any kind of pest control. He got rid of the bugs!! My hero!

Honest. Holt is very friendly and polite. I ask for his services and he came. He drove an hour to my condo and what i like the most about him was his honesty. When he got here he inspected my entire place and he told me that he didn't find anything or any kind of pest. He immediately told me that i didn't need to spray or do anything at the time. So with that being said. How many people you can with honesty like that. Any other pest control company would had probably told me that I need to get it done. So I will recommend 1000 percent to ask for Holt pest control services. Absolutely a great person to do business with. Thank you.

Carl was very personable and professional. He was considerate of both my dog and toddling baby when spraying the interior of our home. He made helpful suggestions and made sure all my questions and concerns were addressed. I would recommend DoodleBug Termite & Pest Control.

I brought home an orchid plant that soon shared little bitty red tiny ant-like bugs with me that enjoyed my kitchen counter. I called mr bug guy and he came by and sprayed and now after about three weeks, no bugs have returned. The next day after he sprayed the bugs were gone. Great job!

I needed some basic information concerning general pest control as well as taking care of some ants. They came out, within a couple days, informed me, took care of my concerns and needs and did it very professionally. I would definitely recommend them to anyone else.

I am very impressed with Bradenton Termite & Pest Control. They responded immediately with my quote and I was able to setup an appointment immediately. Troy was on time for the appointment and took care of our pest problem at our rental property. I will be using this service on a regular basis. I highly recommend using Bradenton Termite & Pest Control. This is the most responsive and professional company that I have worked since moving to Florida more than 3 years ago.

I had a problem with ants in my kitchen and bathroom. Tim and his team were here on time, checked every room, identified TWO types of ants. He treated my home inside and out, was very friendly and consciously aware of my dog Chloe, whom is an inside dog. The treatment was plant based and I have not seen one ant or any live bug since treating my home. I highly recommend Pest Cemetery!!

I was having a problem with carpenter ants and decided to call Pinellas Termite & Pest Control. Steve Clark came to my home and advised me on what needed to be done. He promptly treated my home and I am no longer bothered by the ants. Thanks Steve

We had a terrible infestation for years in our Trinity, FL home. Tried other companies that made it worse. Ants ate through through grout, wallboard, came in droves from doorways, windows, any opening in house. Outside, our pool, deck, paver, driveways had mounds everywhere. The only thing that has worked & kept us ant free is the chemicals used by Steve's Termite & Pest Control. After a full cleaning & spraying outside, we rely on 90 day treatments. If we spy just one tiny ant mound or an ant on the counter- Scott comes right down to check & treat that area for free. We've had no termites, roaches, or those electric wire loving, big-headed tiny ants. We would never use any other company. Ants can do a lot of damage quickly to a home, as well as being unpleasant. We are estatic to be free of these bugs & to have such a professional, reliable service that really know their bugs & what works to get rid of them.

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.
