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.

Just moved into a new home and spiders, etc had their run for a bit in an empty house. The exterminator came in and did "his thang." So far so good. He made some great suggestions to keep my home pest free and I'll definitely take his advice.

Kevin did a great job on my bed bug problem. He was on-time, and very knowledgeable about bed bugs and their ability to spread. He came the same day to take care of my problem. His prices are very competitive and he guarantees his work. Great guy and my go-to exterminator for my pest issues going forward!

They did a excellent job. They explained everything and told us what they will really will be doing. Our house was a little crowded with furniture but yet they still tried as best as they can to spray every corner, while some other exterminators barely do anything. Trust me they are reliable and that is why they are called Reliable-Pest control service. They even made it to our house on the very exact minute that the appointment was supposed to meet. If anything else happens I will definitely use their service again and will for sure recommend them to other people.

The guys that came out were very professional and thorough with their work. Covered all the bases, understanding that we couldn't accomplish bagging everything for the bed bugs extermination but we had 2 weeks forewarning. Even guided me on how to set a mouse trap. Only draw back was the price which was different from what is originally quoted. Don't know if Nolan or Scott actually worked there, but would have appreciated a written quote. Only happened once I agreed to their service and gave them the credit card number.

K&T were professional, yet relatable! This husband/wife team approached the job with a great sense of humor, which means that they need their own show (hear that, HGTV?!) They were to initially do an extermination, but actually did a humane removal of the baby squirrels that were nested in my wall. They even referred me to a contractor who closed the opening where the mama squirrel had gotten in to have the babies! Kentel also placed a follow up call a few days later to check on how the job was done by them and the contractor. I was also offered discounts to referrals that I send to them.

I had a squirrel in the wall in my bathroom that died. Eldridge (Bind-It) was the 2nd exterminator that we called as the first guy was unable to locate the funky little dead critter. El was responsive, came out the next morning and was able to find and extract the dead squirrel. He also pointed out that there were bats chillin in the chimney of the condo building and came back to close up the entry point to keep them out. This dude was a lifesaver cause I literally was getting ready to pack my stuff and move out thats how bad the smell was. He was personable, prompt and professional and I'm happy to provide my stamp of approval on the work he did for us in this building!
