Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with an exterminator during the COVID-19 pandemic?

Ask exterminators in your area if they would be willing to offer a consultation over a phone call or video chat. You can then ask them any questions you have about the upcoming appointment. Make sure to ask what precautions they are taking to keep everyone safe during the COVID-19 pandemic and whether they are observing social distancing guidelines. You may ask them if it's possible to conduct the appointment virtually or without person-to-person contact. 

How can I find out if an exterminator is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

Essential service providers during the COVID-19 crisis are defined by individual states, cities and localities. For the most accurate information, visit your official state or city government website to see what is considered an essential service. 

CISA is the government agency that defines critical workers on a national level, so you can check its website for more information. However, note that not all jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure. 

Are there ways to be safe if I hire an exterminator when social distancing?

If you need pest extermination services inside your home, talk to the exterminator first to be sure that you both feel comfortable completing the project. Also, follow the CDC’s guidelines on social distancing. You can also arrange with the exterminator to take extra steps to stay safe, such as waving instead of shaking hands, staying at least 6 feet apart, using digital payments and sanitizing any common spaces before and after the project is complete. 

Does an exterminator need to enter my home?

If you have an outdoor pest infestation, it’s unlikely an exterminator will need to enter your home. But if your pest infestation is inside your home, the exterminator will likely need to enter your home. Check with the exterminator beforehand to explain the extent of the problem, the layout of your house and see if they can complete the job outdoors. You can also ask the exterminator to video chat or set up a phone call to exchange as much information as possible before you begin the project. 

Do exterminators offer remote or virtual services?

Typically, extermination takes place at your home or place of business, but you can ask if the business is offering special accommodations due to the COVID-19 pandemic. If you come across a profile that states the exterminator is offering remote services, ask what those services include. But if the job has to be done in person, be sure to follow the CDC’s guidelines on social distancing or see if you can postpone your appointment.

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 long does a bed bug treatment last?

Bed bug extermination can last forever as long as the treatment killed all the bed bugs (and their eggs) and if new bed bugs are not transported into the location. Factors that can affect the outcome are how severe the infestation is and whether all bed bug sources were properly identified and treated. When working with a pest control professional, the EPA recommends you check and call references; ask if they offer both chemical and non-chemical treatment options, if they recommend both encasements and interceptors, and if they offer two or more service visits and follow-up. Bed bugs are tiny (adults are roughly the size of an apple seed) and can hide anywhere a credit card can slide into. They squeeze into cracks in walls, behind electrical outlet sockets, in bedding, and in other dark places. Learn how to prepare your home for a bed bug treatment for the best outcomes. Michigan State University shares some examples of possible reasons that a bed bug extermination is not 100 percent effective:

  • Not all sources (aka hiding places) of the bed bugs were identified during initial inspection.
  • Not all sources of bed bugs were treated.
  • The insecticides used were not effective or, in the case of heat treatment, there was insufficient contact time.
  • Infested items such as bedding or other materials were reintroduced into a cleaned area.

How do you check for bed bugs?

If you are concerned you have a bed bug infestation, look for physical signs of their presence. Bed bugs love to hide in small, dark spaces and typically come out to feed (generally on human blood) after dark — although they will come out in daylight if hungry enough. The Environmental Protection Agency states that indications of an infestation can include seeing shed exoskeletons of bed bugs, rusty spots on your bedding (which are either bug droppings or bloodstains), live bed bugs, bed bug egg casings, a sweet and musty odor (if the infestation is severe), and evidence of bites on your skin.

To spot bed bugs, look in and along mattress seams and bedding, in curtain and furniture folds, inside cracks or crevices in the walls, behind picture frames and mirrors, under loose wallpaper seams, on recently used luggage or backpacks, inside electronics, and inside clothing or cluttered areas such as closets. If you see signs of bed bugs, be careful not to disturb them too much as you don’t want them scattering to other parts of your house.

The exterminator of your dreams, seriously this guy is NO JOKE, other exterminators tried to upsell me and wouldn't seal any mouse holes they found. but not Louis. The man is a beast, a hero. Bedbugs salute him, waterbugs fear him. The slayer of the scurrying, the hero of the skittish. If you've got a bug in your mug here's one exterminator you'll want to hug because he'll make your rug: rat free. And the price was fine. Highly recommended.

The exterminator was VERY thorough. Really took the time to find any entry points, seal them properly, and answered any questions I had. He was much better then other exterminators who just leave traps and go, then the problem comes back. Also, all the things he used was pet-safe since I have a dog, and that was great too! He also does a free follow up visit, which I’m thankful for. Would definitely recommend him!

Affordable and Effective! Bed bug free. I am tearing from joy as I write this review. Finally able to step into my home and feel safe. The team who just treated my home was every bit what I researched online regarding proper bed bug treatments. They inspected every inch, did not miss a single item, made sure that every room and piece of furniture was treated and spent time with me after the treatment discussing post treatment maintenance and preventative measures. They genuinely place pride in their work which is reflected in every aspect of their approach. They took the time to walk me through the details of their inspection, what treatment steps they would be employing and why, during the bed bug extermination they kept a neat and safe working environment, when the bed bug extermination was complete, they were nice enough to mop up and sweep up after themselves (good manners and craftsmanship go a long way here). The team was highly knowledgeable and supportive. By far the best bed bug exterminators in NYC. I had 3 bed bug exterminators fail over a period of 6 months, none even performed a fraction of the treatment methods that this crew performed and none had the skill, high tech equipment, and pride in their work ethic. Happily free of bed bugs in NYC.

John did a great and thorough job of inspecting my room and bedding. He also provided knowledgeable insight about my potential situation. This was the reassurance I needed after the exterminator my landlord hired did a poor job of inspecting two hours prior.

These are very professional not only they were punctual but they are very reasonable in prices. They check all the cabinets doors in the kitchen area and tell you how severe the issue is so that you can be well aware of the issue. I would highly recommend them to anyone who needs an exterminator.

I *had( bed bugs. Gene and Leslie are awesome! They were highly accommodating to my schedule, friendly, and fit me the very next day. Leslie always responded to my emails immediately with answers to questions I had about the process. In my adult life, this is the first time I've worked with exterminators. Gene, the exterminator, arrived on time and is a genuinely friendly person. I was nervous about the inspection and spraying, thinking it would be worse than it was, and the whole time Gene kept a nice calm demeanor. Odin Pest obviously has experience in their craft and highly values customer service, too. That speaks volumes for me. I highly recommend.

Extremely professional and knowledgeable. They responded quickly, came out the next day, and explained all the little details of the work he was doing, the pest problem was sorted within a week after trying two different exterminators who weren't able to handle it. One of the best experiences I've had with a professional.

Excellent after care (Louis gave me professional advise even 2 weeks after the treatment) Issue is solved. I'm sleeping better. Thank you so much!
