Summer in NYC makes for a good roach season....but not with these guys. My building's contracted exterminators do a careless job and come at inconvenient times. So I needed someone to really take a look at the root cause, get rid of these suckers and take preventative measures. Bugged Out did all this. They came on the dot at my convenience shortly after I made an inquiry. Justin walked all over the apartment and got in all the nooks and crannies. Roaches gone, personal sanity and comfort back.

We discovered that we had a potential bedbug problem very early in the morning on the Saturday of this past Labor Day weekend. I had struck out with a few other exterminators in my area, being told that technicians wouldn't be available until Tuesday. The folks at Terminators Pest Managenent had a technician, Jerry, at our apartment that afternoon. Jerry and his assistant were prompt, professional and incredibly thorough. Through this Thumbtack service, we were able to ask questions any time of day, all of which were replied to almost immediately. Having even a minor bedbug issue, as we did, can be an incredible nuisance in so many ways. These guys made the process of ridding us of bugs and moving on with our lives as easy as I feel it could have gone. I would recommend Terminators Pest Management to anyone looking to rid themselves of pests.

I am so glad I called Thomas, this exterminator is literally at your service. He took all the time required to deal with a cockroach infestation I had not thought was as bad as it actually was. His dedication and love for his work made him cover all the bases. I am very impressed with the quality of his service. I highly recommend him and will call him again in the future!

James was phenomenal - he scheduled me so quickly when I called for mice and roaches. He reassured me about spraying with my animals in the apartment and we had a plan that was executed perfectly. He showed up right on time and communicated when he would be there. Him and his partner got everything done extremely fast and charged me less than estimated due to the quick job. Compared to other options in the area, not only was his price extremely fair, he was also very professional. I would absolutely hire him again for any pest/rodent needs and plan to get another spray in 6 months. Thank you, James!

We found termites in our basement late last spring and after getting quotes from a couple of exterminators, we chose to go with Gus. Gus is passionate about pest control and termites in particular. He protected the perimeter of our house with termite treatment and also put foam and bait stations as necessary at the source of the infestation, which in our case was at the base of the basement stairs. Even months after getting our house treated, Gus would always answer my questions over the phone or via text and even stopped by one time to address one of my concerns. You can't go wrong with Gus and I recommend him highly.

Even though I was egregiously hysterical about roaches he was absolutely awesome. Came on time, professional, answered my ridiculous questions, explained everything-- got it all done. I had an exterminator come in a few weeks before and saw a live roach soon after so I'm glad I'll be getting the value for money this time. Would definitely hire again and would definitely recommend!

I can’t say enough for “what’s bugging you?” After going completely crazy with other exterminators who did nothing but charge me lots of $ and never eliminated my bedbug situation. I got in touch with Fernando of “what’s bugging you?”, he answered promptly and destroyed the bedbugs, I will never use anyone else, and his prices are great. I highly recommend him.

Very personable experience that you won't get from big box exterminators. No pressure sales and someone even took the time to call and advise me with a very unbiased professional opinion when I was deciding between a big box and a smaller company. Highly reccomend!

Thomas Skinner is a miracle worker!!!!! I am one of those people who never get around to leaving reviews. But given the circumstances, I really feel it is necessary. There was a very bad roach infestation in my apartment! Twice, exterminators sent by landlord came. Both times, there was no noticeable difference. I did some research and decided to hire Thomas Skinner. Almost immediately, the roach population began to decline. Within in a few days, there were very few roaches. By the end of the week, there were NO roaches. It is now about a month later and I have not seen a single roach. Thomas Skinner is very knowledgable, methodical AND most importantly, very effective. I am usually very skimpy in my praise. But I must give Thomas Skinner my highest recommendation. You will be glad you hired him

This has been my second experience with bed bugs unfortunately and the first Exterminator I called was deplorable! I’m so glad I found TD Pest Control and Tommy! He came gave an honest evaluation and told me exactly what I needed to do and what he was going to do. The owner himself does the work! So happy I found him and he is now my go to Exterminator!

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 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 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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
