Richard arrived exactly at the time arranged. He was a great guy and put my mind at ease immediately. He inspected and sprayed every inch of my apartment and told me what to expect and assured me that this problem will be over very soon. I can't wait for the follow visit cause it was like having a friend or relative come and visit. I would recommend everyone to use this company even if you don't have a bed bug problem like I did because they can keep all pest control issues in check before they become a problem.

Great service ! He was right on time. Explained the process in details. Sent me a preparation email before he arrived and another email on what to do after the bed bugs have been treated. They did 4 treatments to create an overkill for the bedbugs. He was honest, and very professional. His price was also reasonable! It beat every other exterminator that I found on thumbtack and other websites. They will be my “go to” company from now on for pest control. I highly recommend.

Great service! This was my first time dealing with pests and had no experience in hiring pest control. The folks from A-Academy put me at ease from the first call itself. They patiently answered all my questions, gave me a clear roadmap of the job they were going to do, followed it up with a free inspection and then the job next day. Being a novice, they advised me on what I need to do in preparation for appointment and then steps I need to take after the pest control treatment. Very professional service and I would highly recommend them to anyone.

He was very prompt and knew all about pigeon mites and how to control this particular pest. He sprayed the whole apartment accordingly and with professional care. I hope it works; if not he said he would come back and spray it again no charge. He's a keeper

What's Bugging You Pest Control is very professional, honest and most of all experienced and knowledgeable. We were devasted when our apt. had encountered a bed bug infestation, WBY pest control was reffered to me through word of mouth, I contacted Fernando and he was quick to aleviate our stressful problem. He knew exactly how to handle the infestation. Fernando was in no rush to leave our apartment, his main concern was to find the bedbugs and elimnate them for good. Thank you for your service!

Andrew and his team have been treating our two properties for the past few years now for mosquitos and ticks, and I must say his organic approach to pest control is truly unique and highly effective I couldn’t reccomend him more! He’s also a genuinely nice person and will randomly contact us between treatments to make sure that everything is under control and that we don’t need him. Take my advice, if you have kids or pets you want to hire GreenThumb for your mosquito tick or other pest control issues.

I highly recommend Eco Plus Pest Management for any pest problem. The response to my request about raccoons in my ceiling was immediate and thorough. When John (the exterminator) arrived, he looked into every nook and cranny until he found the point of entry and started from there and didn't stop until he caught the racoon and until he felt he had covered all possibilities of the problem continuing. Easy going and a pleasure to work with. Very highly recommend plus great customer service.

Atticare was extremely professional. Jeff, the technician was on time and very knowledgeable. My attic was a mess: missing insulation, rodents coming in and out and my A/C bills were outrageous. Atticare remove and replaced my old insulation and block all the access points so rodents won't be able to get in, Including gaps in our roof and the crawl space. Cost was reasonable, and service was excellent. Would recommend them to everyone!

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.
