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. 

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. 

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 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.

Is it safe to use an exterminator spray?

Exterminator sprays and pesticides are generally toxic, and toxicity levels can vary by product. Therefore, it’s best to speak with the best pest control specialists near you to determine the safest way to get rid of your pest problem and reduce the risk of exposure. If a pesticide is needed, it’s likely safer to let the pro spray your home. 

Keep these tips in mind if exterminator spray will be used in your home: 

  • Exterminator spray is not safe to swallow, inhale or touch. 
  • Leave the house when the spray is being applied indoors.
  • Ventilate your home by opening windows and doors upon return. 
  • Keep pets and pet supplies away from the chemicals.

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 do you check for bed bugs?

If you are concerned you have a bed bug infestation, look for physical signs of their presence. Bed bugs love to hide in small, dark spaces and typically come out to feed (generally on human blood) after dark — although they will come out in daylight if hungry enough. The Environmental Protection Agency states that indications of an infestation can include seeing shed exoskeletons of bed bugs, rusty spots on your bedding (which are either bug droppings or bloodstains), live bed bugs, bed bug egg casings, a sweet and musty odor (if the infestation is severe), and evidence of bites on your skin.

To spot bed bugs, look in and along mattress seams and bedding, in curtain and furniture folds, inside cracks or crevices in the walls, behind picture frames and mirrors, under loose wallpaper seams, on recently used luggage or backpacks, inside electronics, and inside clothing or cluttered areas such as closets. If you see signs of bed bugs, be careful not to disturb them too much as you don’t want them scattering to other parts of your house.

How long does a bed bug treatment last?

Bed bug extermination can last forever as long as the treatment killed all the bed bugs (and their eggs) and if new bed bugs are not transported into the location. Factors that can affect the outcome are how severe the infestation is and whether all bed bug sources were properly identified and treated. When working with a pest control professional, the EPA recommends you check and call references; ask if they offer both chemical and non-chemical treatment options, if they recommend both encasements and interceptors, and if they offer two or more service visits and follow-up. Bed bugs are tiny (adults are roughly the size of an apple seed) and can hide anywhere a credit card can slide into. They squeeze into cracks in walls, behind electrical outlet sockets, in bedding, and in other dark places. Learn how to prepare your home for a bed bug treatment for the best outcomes. Michigan State University shares some examples of possible reasons that a bed bug extermination is not 100 percent effective:

  • Not all sources (aka hiding places) of the bed bugs were identified during initial inspection.
  • Not all sources of bed bugs were treated.
  • The insecticides used were not effective or, in the case of heat treatment, there was insufficient contact time.
  • Infested items such as bedding or other materials were reintroduced into a cleaned area.

If you are looking for an honest, stress-free and thorough extermination service look no further than LeadTech Pest Services... Where do I even start?.. Dennis Duckworth is personable on a level that is rarely seen in most professions, and his refreshing honesty reflects the dedication and commitment to give you the comfort and security back in your home you deserve. If you are tired of being told outrageous estimates with lengthy fee-ridden consultations only to have the treatment fail and/or needing repeated exposure and costly repeat services, you could not be in better hands than with LeadTech Pest Services. It's people like Dennis Duckworth who represents what I consider to be the golden standard in quality and service for not only extermination, but overall business management and customer satisfaction. Other exterminators I called gave me unclear estimates and consultation fees totaling 3-4x the price that LeadTech was able to offer. He was able to accommodate my busy schedule and even pay me a visit to our house within 12 hours of calling due to my recent back surgery and needing my bed for rest. I called him after-hours and while he was out running errands and still made it his priority to talk me through the preparation, consultation and procedure and told me exactly when he could make it out the very next afternoon and (if needing to) begin treatment SAME DAY. I was blown away. You really can't make a bigger statement to the level of satisfaction you strive to provide to your customers than that. Some companies only "claim" to have fantastic service directed towards the benefit of the customer, it's only the very best that put their money where there mouth is so to speak. Some people still know how to run an honest and noble business, and LeadTech is, without a shadow of a doubt, one of the best. Although I hope we never have to again, I will be using LeadTech for all my exterminating needs and would recommend to ANYONE looking for an honest company and honest price unrivaled by even the largest "name brand" headache-inducing exterminators. Keep up the fantastic work Dennis! I have already recommended you to my friends and family so hopefully others will follow in allowing you to assist and correct what others only try to do. Unbelievable customer service, thoroughness, and overall honesty. Two thumbs WAY up!

Latrice C.
Wonderful service! Excellent communication! One of my pet peeves is people coming to the home for service and not bringing booties or having to be asked to remove their shoes so Bryant was already 5 star when he came in and removed his shoes! He asked questions about our bug problem, went upstairs and to the garage spraying thoroughly. When he went outside to spray the perimeter he removed cobwebs, found ant nests, and even sprayed where he noticed we had issues with wasps! I am pleased as punch with the service and will refer Phoenix Pest Control to anyone looking for exterminator services.
