Anthony is a total professional and a great guy. He helped us out with a issue we had with Orkin. I really appreciated his help. He went above and beyond. I will never use the major pest control companies again. I highly recommend Citarella Termite and Pest.

He came out to my house to assess it for bed bugs that I thought I had. He was very pleasant, honest and thorough. Instead of scaring me like other pest control companies I called did, he actually reassured me and put me at ease. I will use him for all my future pest control needs. Very personable too!

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.

After using other pest control companies, I found Doodlebugs to be ethical, customer-oriented, and professional. Carl not only provides the service, but is knowledgeable in his field. His prices are competitive while still offering the quality of pest control and termite protection. I would highly recommend hiring Doodlebugs.

The technician was very good at explaining the problem and what I had as well as the process to treat the home. I really like the organic process. I was also looking for a pest control service. So I was able to get both services covered at a very fair price. And the technician was on time and again, he knew his product and the problem.

They were great in responding and the technician was punctual and professional. He did say he would come back in two weeks but never heard from him. I just wish there was a follow phone call or something. I signed up for the quarterly service but don’t know when my next visit would be. This is my first time ever using a pest control service so I’m not sure what I should expect. The first visit was great tho.

They did everything the way it should be done. Helpful personnel. A THANK YOU letter after the service. Who does that any more? I can't rate how effective the termite treatment was. Time will tell.

VPM was prompt and very informative. He also explained his services clearly without all the scientific talk (didn't try to talk over my head). He did not appear rushed, was not rude and was indeed very professional. His appearance and equipment was clean and I felt very secure with him in my home. His quote was competitive and I feel he did more than the quote presented. I had him perform services on the spot as he was available. I signed up for a preventive plan as well (cheaper). I certainly recommend this company for pest control services.

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.  

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.

How much does it cost to remove a mouse?

If you have a mouse in your house you’re probably quickly researching pest control costs. Mice, although tiny, can transmit diseases and also get into your food and leave unsanitary droppings around your home. If you have seen one mouse in your house, it’s likely that more have taken up residence in your crawl space, attic or basement.The national average pest control cost is $150-$200. Costs can vary depending on whether you need to get rid of a population of living mice or just dispose of a dead mouse (or full traps), how extensive the mouse population is, and where you live in the country. Here are some examples of average pest control cost for removing a mouse:

  • $150 for initial trap setup and inspection (and sealing of entry holes).
    • $50 for rodent removal service calls and emptying of traps. This visit can also include identifying and sealing entry points that were not sealed on the first visit.
  • Rodent extermination: $110-$350, depending on how heavy the rodent population is, whether the mouse infestation poses health risks, how many entrances exist and how many rodent bait stations are needed.
