After researching prices and methods of various pest control companies, I found A and J to be the best value for the quality of service they offered. The first inspection went well, and there are now poison bait traps in key areas and copper mesh in the potential mouse holes around the apt. He'll be back in 2 weeks to see what else needs to be done.

What a great experience considering the circumstances! I've used other pest control companies before, but I've finally found an honest, very knowledgeable, reliable source to use and would refer anyone to. Bill was responsive, timely, and easy to work with. He was also very reasonable, and so far, his work has kept the pests away. He is very professional and also immediately set an appointment for a follow-up, which is very much appreciated.

Dealing with bed bugs has been horrible but I feel like having Banner Pest Control on my side makes it more bearable! Rick will be there until the job is completed and also go above and beyond to help. I give Banner Pest Control my highest recommendation! Elaine C.

Matthew taught me things about my house that I already had in place for pest control I didn't even know about! He treated for carpenter ants inside and out and I'm 100% confident I won't be seeing them anymore after today! He was informative and offered to help with other issues if/when they arise.

A&D Professional Pest Elimination has been wonderful from the start. Speaking to Mike Marshall via thumbtack messages and over the phone has been so helpful with all of the information needed, setting up an inspection and just feeling at ease as to what is going on with our situation. He has been so accommodating with not only setting up the inspection as soon as he could, but also setting up our treatment as soon as possible as well which was a must for us. Tim, who did our inspection, was great as well. He was very professional, informative and thorough in inspecting which made me feel a lot better. He walked me through everything and answered all of my questions. Our first treatment hasn't happened yet, it is tomorrow 7/16, but I trust that this review will stay the same throughout all 3 treatments. A&D is very professional, trustworthy and is the ONLY pest control company I spoke to this week that GUARANTEES their work and won't stop until their job is done and 100% successful. They stand behind their work. Which is what we were looking for. We don't want to have to call another pest control company to come back 6 months later to do another treatment. We want this gone for good. Thank you so much to Mike, Tim and everyone at A&D Pest Control for everything and for making sure our home is in good hands. We appreciate it and will recommend you to anyone!

I received a response from Ryan of Safer Nature Pest Control within hours of my request and he was at my home, in a snowstorm, within 48 hours. Ryan is extremely professional and he was very thorough. I called about mouse activity in my finished basement. He addressed the issue and did a complete check of my entire home, to include the attic, which I very much appreciated.

We hired Flynn to treat a bedbug problem. They sent out an inspector who was timely, professional and friendly. He evaluated the problem, designed two treatment solutions then walked us through them both. We ended up going with the heat treatment which was very effective. I will recommend Flynn Pest Control to anyone who wants fairly-priced, professional and prompt service. They were a pleasure to work with!

After having a bat in our house we went to Thumbtack to find a pest control expert. They contacted me within 24 hours, and showed up to my house the day later. They thoroughly inspected the home for bat colonies, and found none. They were insightful and offered suggestions as to how the bat could have entered the home. They showed up within their 2 hour window as we agreed. There is nothing they could have done better, hence the 5 star rating. If I have a problem with rodents or pests in the future I will be going back to them.

    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.  

    How much does it cost to treat a house for termites?

    Termites are not only creepy-crawly, they can literally eat your house out from underneath you. Termites feed on damp and dry wood and can chomp through your house at an alarming rate. The national average pest control cost for termite extermination is $240-$400. Treatment costs can be higher for an extensive infestation. Here are some examples of average pest control costs for termites:

    • Liquid treatment of subterranean termites: $3-$4 per linear foot.
      • For $75 per year, a company may offer a maintenance plan that provides inspection of the property and renewal of the warranty.
    • Liquid treatment of subterranean termites: approximately $400 for a 2,000-square-foot home at $3-$5 per linear foot.
      • The price is higher for additional work such as foaming and drilling inside of concrete slabs.
    • Fumigation treatment of drywood termites: $1,200-$1,500 for a 30,000- to 35,000-cubic-foot home
      • Fumigation is measured in cubic feet because it fills the airspace of the home and infiltrates the wood that the termites may be colonizing. The cost of fumigation is affected by the number of levels in the home as well as the square footage.

    How much does it cost to get rid of cockroaches?

    Cockroaches are not only ugly, they are difficult to get rid of. Quick and resilient, they can be hard to get rid of without professional help once they have inhabited a house. Nationally, the average range for cockroach pest control cost is $80-$130. Extermination professionals typically provide a free estimate to determine the extent of the infestation. They’ll check for the main sources of the bugs, identify bug access and entry points into your home, and determine the best method for elimination. There are a variety of cockroach extermination tools including gel baits and traps, pesticide foggers, desiccants (which dry out the cockroaches), neurotoxins, and other pesticides. Pest control costs can also cover preventive measures like regular spraying and trap maintenance. Some regions of the country are much more prone to cockroach problems than others, so pest control costs may need to be part of your quarterly budget. Cockroaches love dark, humid, and warm areas and water sources, so place traps near your washer and dryer and under your sinks.
