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. 

Can I use digital payments to pay for pest control services?

You may be able to use digital payments such as Venmo, Apple Pay, PayPal, Venmo, Square Cash or Zelle to pay for extermination services. Many businesses accept methods of payment besides cash and credit cards. Check with pest control services in your area to see if they have changed their payment methods as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

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. 

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.

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 I need to leave the house for pest control?

It depends on the type of pest control service you require. Your exterminator can often tell you beforehand which products they’ll be using and where they’ll be applying it. 

If the pest control company will be applying toxic chemicals, limit your exposure, according to the National Pesticide Information Center. For example, consider leaving your house during application and ventilate your home thoroughly when you return. And always keep your pets and their supplies away from the applied pesticides. 

Talk to pest control companies near you for advice on what you should do while they’re treating your home for pests. 

How do you get rid of ants?

The best way to get rid of ants is to hire an ant exterminator near you. The exterminator can also help you find the source of the problem that’s drawing ants into your home. 

After they’re done treating your home, you can invest in ant baits to keep infestations at bay. It’s also important to take preventative steps to avoid ants.

For example, always clean up crumbs and wipe down surfaces to eliminate potential food sources. Regularly take out the trash, fix leaky pipes, store your food in sealed containers and seal cracks near your kitchen cabinets. 

Here are more tips on how to get rid of ants (for good).

Is monthly pest control necessary?

Monthly pest control service is only necessary for certain situations. For example, severe ant or cockroach infestations may require monthly pest control in order to destroy the infestations at the source. 

Talk to the best exterminators near you to get an idea of what type of service you need — and how many times you’ll need follow-up treatments.

How much does it cost to kill bed bugs?

The cost of bed bug extermination depends primarily on how widespread the pest infestation is and how many rooms need to be treated. Other factors that can affect bed bug extermination costs are the amount of clutter in the location, additional furniture that needs to be treated, and construction of the home. Pest management professionals often have rates for room treatments, which can vary based on these factors. As an example, a pest management company treating a 10-by-15-foot room with light infestation might charge clients about $250, while the same size room with a heavy infestation and large amounts of clutter might cost the clients $300-$400. Clutter and heavier bed bug populations mean more product and longer labor time for the workers. Rates will vary from company to company, and from region to region, but the national average bed bug extermination cost is $320-$400. Bed bug heat treatments are an alternative way to exterminate these pests. Heat treatments are typically charged per square foot and tend to cost more than chemical or non-chemical spray solutions. Although effective, they are not usually recommended for occupied spaces, as the extreme temperatures can damage televisions, window dressings and other home furnishings.

Shayne was right on time and provided great information about our issue. He was able to quickly resolve it, charged a reasonable fee, and we have not had the problem since. Hopefully we don't need an exterminator again, but if we do he's my first call.

Just got a new house and unfortunately some wasps wanted to move in as well. I'd never hired an exterminator before, but Kreshco made things easy and convenient. They guarantee their services and are very honest and reasonable. I'm glad to support local businesses and they are so much better than the big names. Wasps are an afterthought now; thanks again!

I would highly recommend Precise Exterminating Company. I had a problem with Bees, this gentlemen was prompt, professional and , quite knowledgeable. He located the hive, and sprayed my house as well as the garage at a fair value, and under a warranty, promised to come back if i continue to see anymore of those annoying creatures, so far I have not seen any and i can enjoy my deck.

Timothy at Bug Bounty Hunters was very professional and thorough. He gave us a very reasonable quote, arrived on time, and treated my entire house in a few hours. He gave us advice on what we can do to keep bed bugs from returning and is coming back in a week and a half to apply a second treatment. He also offered us a 3 month warranty just in case. I would recommend this company if you are looking for a local exterminator.

I needed an exterminator due to carpenter ants in my house. I contacted Chris after looking at his excellent reviews and I’m very glad I did. He immediately contacted me back and came the same day. He was very professional and got right to work. I could definitely tell he has been doing this for a long time and he knows exactly what to do to take care of the pests. His prices are very fair and he did everything that needed to be done. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone needing pest control!
Monica J.
I thoroughly enjoyed working with Randy. I had a few concerns about the extermination process, especially when it came to my cats. One of them is very skiddish and the other one is old. To have to remove them from the premises would have caused them great stress, as well as causing me alot of work. I am so grateful that didn't have to be done. I also was very surprised at how low the cost was for the work done. Randy worked with me (and my cats) to eliminate a very annoying situation. Thank you very much!

The technician Chris was very flexible with scheduling a time to treat my home due to the fact that I work swing shifts. He accommodated me by doing a same day appointment. I was very impressed by the fact that he was very knowledgeable of all pest and put my mind at ease that he was confident that he could eradicate my bed bug problem. I have never needed an exterminator in the past and have a fear of bugs. Chris was very patient with me and took the time to answer all my questions. He talked me through how to care for my linens, curtains, and clothing to kill any bugs that may have latched on and educated me on reinfestations prevention. He was very meticulous and did not rush the job. Making sure he treated all areas in my home. He gave every space the attention it needed. The company's prices were competitive and the technician was polite, professional, patient, and knowledgeable. I would use their service again for any future pest problems and would recommend it to anyone with a pest problem. Thank you Chris for giving me back my piece of mind.
