Over the years, our family has gone through several different "bug guys". Kevin, bar none, has been the best we have ever had! He always contacted me before his arrival and was always professional, but even more importantly, he is extremely trustworthy! Kevin became more of a friend to our family than a "bug guy"! There is no one else, in my opinion, who is better qualified for this job! I HIGHLY recommend the Eco Man for all your bug needs!!!

Josh was great answering my questions on the phone and was able to schedule me at a convenient time for me. Tyler was on time. He explained what he was doing and was friendly and courteous. He was done in the quoted time frame. Overall a great experience for a not so great bug problem.

I contracted with Bulwark Exterminating for pest control management in our new home. I called on Friday evening, primarily to leave a message for a callback to have an estimate for long term maintenance but also to rid my new kitchen of pesky little ants. To my surprise someone answered and set an appointment for the following morning. John came on Saturday and explained the services he was going to perform. He was knowledgeable, professional and personable. I look forward to seeing his regularly to keep our home bug free. It's now Monday and we are still seeing some ants but understand it may take awhile to rid them all. I'm certain someone will be back if needed. At this point I'm pleased with Bulwark.

I called David with the mindset that our home had bed bugs. My husband had collected a bunch of little bugs around our house that I swore were bed bugs! David said he would come out and treat for them. He arrived on time. I showed him what we had collected and he said they were not bed bugs! Believe me I was ready to spend some money on getting rid of these guys, he easily could have said that they were and treated and left. But he didn't! Honesty is key to a successful business and this guy is nothing less! Turns out these bugs were only carpet Beatles and David treated for them and we purchased an annual contract with him. Very thankful for this company.

John arrived as promised and assessed the bed bug situation in the house. He did a thorough investigation and found that we were in the early stages of an infestation. He treated the entire area (the family room over the garage), even turning over furniture to get inside for complete spraying. His price includes 2 more treatments over the next month. Very pleased with his work!!

Rick called me within 30 minutes of me sending him an email stating I wanted to hire him. He came promptly and exterminated my hornet's nest that I had. He did it in a very safe manner so all the nearby homes were safe. Once the nest was killed, he did a very clean job of removing the nest so that I do not get another nest built there next year. A few of the people I talked to left that up to the client for disposal. He was very professional and is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

We had critters living under our house which was driving our dogs nuts (and in turn us). We tried a sonic deterrent and that worked until it got cold, and then they were back. Then, Eric came in and did a very thorough investigation. He set some humane traps and sealed up the holes where they were coming in and cleared out the nests under the house. Problem solved. We are critter-free (and without killing anything!) He did a very thorough job and was a pleasure to work with. I'd recommend him highly.

I've used The Bug Guy to address a bed bug issue. Mr. Paul was very thorough and diligent in eradicating the problem. Mr. Paul educated me on prevention tips while navigating and explaining the process. My bug issue is no more. Unlike other companies I've inquired about, Mr. Paul cared about my family while providing an effective and economical service. I'm so grateful. Thanks again. T. Green

Joe and Josh we’re phenomenal. I appreciated there upfront analysis of the bed bug infestation and what they do to treat the problem. I had painters working in the house so I also very much appreciated how Joe and Josh were able to coordinate work efforts with the painters to optimize their time and make both jobs happen seamlessly. They were extremely thorough in that they had also identified a roach infestation in my kitchen and addressed the matter. I really valued their attention to detail, efficiency in their work, and their price. I would highly recommend.

John-Mark and crew are amazing. We typically have Alex service our home quarterly for pest and monthly for mosquitos. Their products are amazing, we have very little issues with bugs/spiders and if for some reason we have an issue, they're over to the house within 48 hours to reapply as necessary. Our pup ended up getting fleas while we were away. We made an emergency call to ClearDefense and again, they were over treating the house within 48 hours. They are extremely professional and their products actually work. We had the house sprayed quarterly by another company prior to switching and saw very little relief. We even started having a black widow issue. In the last few years we've been with ClearDefense I can count on one hand the amount of spiders I've found alive on our property. They're more than bug guys.

We began a quarterly pest service with Mayday a few months ago, and have been very pleased. Lance is on time (a rare quality!), and quotes reasonable, competitive rates. The work is of the highest quality, and our bug problems have basically been eliminated. Would suggest Mayday to anyone.

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 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.

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.

How much does it cost to get a pest inspection?

In general there is no cost for a pest inspection. Exterminators typically provide a free property or building inspection and then provide you with a written estimate outlining the necessary treatment and cost. The home visit allows the exterminator to assess the problem and let you know what your pest control cost will be if you contract with their services. You may need a termite inspection for real estate purposes. This will be a verified inspection showing that the house in question is termite-free (often done before a sale). The inspection may cost a flat rate, such as $125-$150, depending on house size.

It’s hard to predict pest control costs sight unseen due to the variety of factors that go into pest treatment. For example, a bedbug problem for one customer may be confined to one room and be easy to access and treat in one visit if the room is clear of clutter and the bedbugs have been caught early. In another home, a bedbug problem may also be confined to one room, but there’s a great deal of clutter, providing more hiding places for the bugs and requiring more spray and labor for the exterminator, as well as many pieces of large furniture in the room that need to sprayed. Depending on the maturity of the infestation, a bedbug problem may require multiple visits to entirely eliminate. This is why many companies provide a free inspection to determine pest control costs and provide you the most accurate quote possible.
