Rick was friendly and good at explaining what he was doing and why he was doing it. He was patient and took his time in order to take care of the problem. I would recommend his services to every person I know who needs an exterminator which I have already done.

We were using another exterminator for months and our rodent issue was not going away in a 3-unit building. We switched to Frank with Aftermath and he attacked the issue from several angles and our problem is pretty much gone! I've also used him for a bedbug treatment and he did an awesome job. He's very professional, timely, and the service is a good value. Highly recommended!

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.

Let me first start off by saying that Clean Pest Solutions has something that other exterminators and big, well known extermination companies don’t have.... HONESTY! I got Clean Pest Solutions information after posting my thumbtack ad, looking for a bed bug exterminator. We were told by Orkin (who came out to inspect) that it would cost us $1100-$1800 to treat our whole house. Although we wanted to treat the problem quickly, we also wanted to shop around a little and see who had the best guarantee and tools to deal with this. Chris offered to come out and inspect for us and come to find out, IT ISN’T BED BUGS! Chris was so honest about his findings and didn’t even try to upsell us on a preventative treatment because he didn’t feel the need to expose our family and my son to pesticides based on his findings (or lack there of). He gave us the best news we could’ve hoped for. Chris also left us with a few sticky traps free of charge just in case we experience any bites or such because he was honest saying it’s possible he missed something not seen by the eye. AWESOME SERVICE! Would highly recommend.

I've had bed bugs for 7 months and finally they are gone. What a relief. These guys were the only ones who could get the job done. They came to my apartment three times for treatments and inspections. The mattresses and box springs were taken care of, they put pads down on the bed frames to prevent tears, and steam cleaned and treated the baseboards and closet tracks. If I had any questions I emailed them and they responded almost immediately with advice. The job they did was extremely thorough and I couldn't be more thankful I picked them for my bug problem. I have used another extermination service which failed in the past. So if you have bed bugs I HIGHLY recommend choosing the Windy City Bed Bug Specialists. :)

Bed bugs were literally ruining my life. The lack of sleep made my work performance suffer and I eventually got fired. I was weakened so much that my immune system suffered and I was sent to the hospital. I searched on thumbtack looking for a price I could afford and this popped up. Donald is literally my hero. He came in and got rid of all of them. I can now sleep peacefully at night and my health has improved. I definitely recommend this exterminator.

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.
