Matt Twomey (BBB Pest Services) is my ONE and ONLY exterminator for my two properties.. In the past, I have used 2 other BIG NAME pest control services and was NEVER happy with them. They were just adequate. Matt toes above and beyond all my expectations for my pest control needs, and he's a pleasure to talk to and a very good communicator. He's not happy unless I am happy, and always checks back with me to make sure he met those expectations. I will NEVER use any other service but BBB for pest control and have already recommended Matt to many friends..He is the BEST at what he does..!!

Hired Banner Pest Control to take care of a bedbug issue I was having. Rick came out right away, he was very knowledgeable and was able to get rid of all the bedbugs in our house in a timely manner. He has since made a couple of follow up visits and I couldn't be happier. Highly recommend Rick with Banner Pest and will definitely be using him from now on.

I recently needed the services of an exterminator at my home. I was not sure if I had a raccoon in the attic or if squirrels or mice had gotten in. Through Thumbtack I hired Pest-End Exterminators & Pro-Tech Lawn Care. I was contacted by Adam nd given a price quote for the services I requested. The next day Jeremy came to my home and was friendly and thorough. He spent an hour and a half and He checked the house from basement to attic and determined what the problem was and took all the necessary steps to resolve the issue. I was later contacted for a follow-up visit in about week and a half. The service includes a 6 month guarantee. I was very happy with my experience and would be happy to recommend this company to anyone who has a need for this type of service. Overall I found them to be a very professional and reliable company.

Robert Carter and his assistant were great. Above and beyond the call of duty! Treated my yellow jacket problem and was sympathetic, friendly, informative and helpful.Responded immediately and came out within 2 hours. Helpful in providing needed documentation to give to tenant as well. I will use ITS for any exterminator needs in the future (which hopefully I won't have).

Jeff went through every room in my house sealing up access points in which mice could slip through. He was very informative and patient with explaining everything to me. Being this was my first experience with mice since living in my house for over 7 years, I tried to initially set traps myself which didn't work and Jeff explained why. He set traps and is scheduled to come back within two weeks to check on the traps. I couldn't have asked for a better exterminator.

Carpenter Ants damaged 2 sections of garage sill so I googled for ant exterminator servicing Quincy,MA area. I left message @4:45pm Friday and Alex Miranda called @6:45pm same day. He was professional and friendly. Mike Bukowski, the Lead Technician came the following Monday morning. I received a call from Mike he was able to come a little earlier than scheduled time. Mike was also professional and friendly.He explained what he was going to do and then sprayed around the outside of garage and all around the foundation of the house. He completed the job in 15 minutes or less. The product used was odorless. I am going to have this service done yearly by Mass Bay Wildlife Management, Inc. Thank you for such a pleasant business experience.

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.
