We contacted EES Services to inquire about getting our chimney inspected. We have lived in our house for about ten years, but never once used the fireplace. Through the years, we did have quite a few wasps come in through the chimney and we really had no idea what was potentially living up there. We relayed this to EES and they set up a time to come out and inspect and sweep our chimney. Jose, the owner, is top notch. Very professional, very prompt, and very knowledgeable. He provided multiple pictures of EVERYTHING (showing inside the chimney and outside the chimney) and gave us options to rectify the fireplace's issues. For what it's worth, there was a small wasp nest up there but since it was early March... no wasps were present. We thought about our options for a few days and decided to have EES repair the chimney so as to stop water intrusion - this involved constructing a new cement crown and installing a new damper at the top of the chimney. Again, he took pictures of everything and took no shortcuts. By virtue of our experience, my wife and I highly recommend EES Services and are looking forward to living a wasp-free lifestyle moving forward.

Pest Proof - Eric Littlejohn - treated our basement and addition crawl space for camel/cave crickets. He was very thorough in applying both wet and dry pesticides. Additionally, Eric made a personal call to our house to investigate our situation and discuss his methods before sending a proposal. There was no hard-sell for long term contracts or additional services we did not need. He followed up with a written proposal via email and because of his professional manner and reasonable pricing we hired him. My guess is that he will be our "go-to" for pest control services in the future.

When it comes to pest control it's not often you think, wow what a wonderful experience. Both the C and D of C&D pest management did exactly that. Candance answered my calls and concerns quickly. Was polite, informative and professional. Dave was able to give me a reasonable quote prior to coming to our house which was significantly cheaper than the big company that came out and performed a free inspection. Candace was able to get me scheduled for service within 72 hours while the big company said it would be a week or so before they could have a technician out. Dave arrived early after texting to make sure that was ok. He was professional and thorough. He explained everything prior to service and answered any questions I had knowledgeably but in termanology I could understand. I would highly recommend C&D!

This company was very professional and was able to handle the pest control problem in a time matter. Out of all the pest control people that I contacted they were able to squeeze me into their busy schedule. I couldn’t be more happier and pleased with our service from them. I would highly recommend them and use them again. They did understood and took time to figure out where the mice was getting in from.

I would highly recommend One Stop Pest Services to anyone with a pest control problem. I called Mr. Marvin Goodman with an emergency pest control problem in my apartment and he showed up the same day and within a couple of hours even though it was a last minute call. He was professional and did a wonderful job. The problem is now resolved thanks to One Stop Pest Services. I can't say enough how happy I was with the customer service from this company and from Mr. Goodman.

My pregnant wife discovered a venomous snake on our front yard while playing with my 2 year old son. I called Joe and he was very informative came to the rescue by removing the snake from our property while many other companies wanted to schedule a service call on another day. He also provided thorough and meticulous pest control service. I will be hiring Joe again.

I found coordinating a service appointment was very easy via phone and email. The technician, Jeff, did a fantastic job. He showed me what he was looking for, he de-webbed everything to see if there were any issues I hadn't identified. He treated the areas I needed, and a few extra areas to be sure of the results. I was moving boxes in the basement later that day and pleasantly surprised to NOT find any live insects. This will be my pest treatment company in the future.

VA Widelife and Mr. Kenneth Rand showed up early and went right to work. He discovered that I had a raccoon problem and setup traps to catch them. Over the course of a couple of days, Kenneth captured five (5) raccoons!!! Even better, VA Animal Control was cheaper than the other estimate I had. I recommended him to my neighbor who had bats in his attic. Great Job VA Wildlife.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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 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.  

How do you get and get rid of bed bugs?

Bed bugs can travel into your home via luggage, secondhand furniture or clothing, and other items that have been exposed to the little pests. Bed bugs are tiny and flat (about the size of an apple seed and the height of a credit card), so they can easily hide in dark, small places and hitchhike into your home. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, most people don’t even know they’re transporting bed bugs as they travel from location to location, infecting areas as they travel. The sooner you notice a bed bug infestation in your home, the easier it is to get rid of it. The EPA suggests an integrated pest management plan to get rid of bed bug problems. This means a multi-pronged approach that takes the bug’s life cycle into account, uses chemical treatment where needed, and takes all necessary measures (use of encasements, high heat washing and drying of bedding, etc.) to stop current and future life cycles. Unless you feel confident about controlling a bed bug infestation, it can be wise to hire a pest management professional to prevent the problem from getting bigger.

How do you get bed bugs?

Bed bugs can happen to anybody and there typically more than 200,000 cases in the U.S. per year. They are sneaky little pests that hitchhike into your home in a variety of ways. Getting a bed bug infestation is not a reflection on how clean a home is; bed bugs can infiltrate the cleanest of places — although their presence is easier to detect and eliminate in clutter-free spaces. Here are some tips from the EPA to prevent bed bugs from entering and taking up residence in your home:

  • Carefully inspect secondhand furniture, beds, or couches for any signs of bed bug infestation before bringing them home.
  • Use a protective cover (encasement) over mattresses and box springs to prevent bed bugs from hiding in them. Select an encasement in a light color to make bed bug spotting easier. Also choose one of a strong material that won’t tear, and check it often for holes.
  • Keep your home clutter-free to eliminate bed bug hiding spots.
  • Vacuum your home regularly and dispose of sealed vacuum bags carefully.
  • Shared laundry facilities can lead to bed bug exposure in both directions. Transport laundry in plastic bags (if you have an active infestation, use a new bag for the journey home). Remove laundry from the dryer directly into the bag and fold it at home. Use high heat to kill any potential bed bugs.
  • The EPA suggests that if you live in a multi-family home, isolate your unit by:
    • Installing door sweeps on the bottom of doors to discourage movement into hallways.
    • Sealing cracks and crevices around baseboards, light sockets, etc., to discourage movement through wall voids.
