The bed bugs, in our house, were terrorizing a few members of my household. After discovering the source of the itches and sores, I immediately began a search for terminator of bed bugs. Robert, from RamKil, was the first to respond to my project request and the 3rd or 4th exterminator I spoke to. He gave me a quote that was on par with the larger companies, like Orkin and Truly Nolen. Dealing with him, however, was a far more pleasant experience. After reading his reply to my request, I decided to call him. He answered the phone himself, not a computer. He was very pleasant and professional during the call. He allowed me to explain the situation, asked a few questions to clarify some of the information I'd given him, and then explained a little more about the bugs themselves, and how the process would work once I decided to move forward with the extermination (and I intended to waste no time). Once I told the same thing to my sister, we decided to choose Robert for our pest control needs. I called him back and we were able to schedule an appointment and he emailed me a prep sheet of things I needed to do to make it easier, faster and more effective when he treated. I did get the impression that he is very busy, however, and that I was fortunate enough to be in the right location, with the right problem, at the right time (he really did seem to enjoy himself, and was quite enthusiastic about killing bed bugs and restoring peace to their victims). When he arrived for our first treatment, he was very polite, friendly and professional. He explained everything, went a little more into detail about bed bugs and their life cycles, and why it was almost impossible to get rid of them by yourself. I decided he was most definitely right after hearing his report afterwards, and hearing all the places he found them that we never even thought to look. Hire a professional if you are being attacked by these things. We left, he did his thing and called when he was done. He explained what he found and clarified some questions I had about returning to the house. I would definitely hire him again. I was extremely impressed by Robert. The fact that he loved killing those things made the experience that much better. In fact, his enthusiasm reminded me much of a hobbiest and their attention to detail, making me that much more confident in his effectiveness killing them all.

If I or anyone I know ever need an exterminator I would recommend Rick exclusively. He was attentative to my concerns and he did more than I expected. He checked out & plugged places where pest were likely getting in. He did outside with the same care as inside even taking down a wasp nest that he found outside. Thank you Jesus for such a kind man.

Matt and David are awesome thank you so much for your help. Our exterminator was kind of rude and was very jusgemental, and disrespectful to our house but I know that's not the service beacon represents from our conversations with Matt. We hope next visit we'll have someone more professional but they still deserve 5 stars for their great service and unbeatable price.

I contacted Pest Exterminators and got an immediate appointment to meet at my business where I was concerned about our fruit rat problem. Jim arrived as scheduled and did a thorough exam of interior/exterior of my business and stayed and discussed with me all options. The quoted Thumbtack price was what I paid for the initial visit, laying of traps, and examination. I am very happy with every aspect of Pest Exterminators and extremely pleased with Jim! And later that night - we caught at least one with the work Jim did!

Very satisfied with this company. Brian who did the initial treatment and owner is very knowledgeable. The follow up was done according to my schedule and was done as promised by James. He was very detailed and educational. It turns out that I had what he called mill bugs or product pests and gave me advice on how to prevent them as well as steps to ensure that I cut off their food source. Very interesting and beneficial. I have not seen any bugs since other than the product bugs... working on nipping that best I can in the meantime. So relieved. I would definitely be looking them up again when needed. Thanks A-1... !!

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.
