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.

Jony was AWESOME! He exterminated the outside of my home and detached garage for termites. Explained everything he was doing during the process and even exterminated the inside of our house for no extra charge. His fee was very reasonable as well. Will definitely use him again!

We have battled those disgusting little bedbugs for over a year. We used every fogger and spray available, plus the internet cures. We even had the house professionally exterminated twice but the bugs were winning the war. Then I called EnviroCare. I didn't have much hope after the last exterminator but I put my trust in him. It was the right thing to do. I think we finally won the war!!!

First, he told me a time and wasn't a minute late. Jony explained to me in detail what he was going to do to exterminate the bees. The bees was gone within the 24 hour period he said. I'm very pleased with his work.

We are very happy with his services. We hired him for bed bug extermination, and although it took a couple visits (these bugs can prob withstand a nuking) we are pleased with outcome. Worked around our schedule, prompt, friendly and patient. I would definitely recommend him. Also, great price!

Actually perform the extermination. He completed the entire inside of the house in less than 10 minutes. I was told to empty the cabinets in the kitchen, but only treated the sink cabinets. He said he did not want to spray on anything. Everything was emptied! What I requested and what he performed was two different things.

During the initial visit, it appeared that all areas had been exterminated. As days went by, I periodically contacted the contractor to let him know of bug citings. And he advised the were crawling out to die. However, I've advised him of other citings, and bites, and have yet to hear anything else from him.

Prompt, efficient. Had no signs of bugs but I still had him spray for all types of bugs (bed bugs, ants, roaches), and he also sprayed for wasps/bees. Covered not only inside my home, but my entire grounds as well. Very thorough. Pleasant demeanor. Would recommend to Anyone needing services but not looking to be ripped of by overpriced extermination companies.

I submitted my "RFP" on Thumbtack at around 8pm on a Sunday and by 9:30, Jony had already booked me for the following day at 1pm. He arrived right at one, did the work quickly, and was on his way. Price was excellent, 90 day guarantee gave me peace of mind. Great experience all around, highly recommend Hathuc if you need exterminating services quickly and at good value.

I tried not to respond, but as I continue to kill baby roaches, spray pregnant and mating roaches caught in the act, I can't ignore this request to comment on the services. I did not unpack prior to Frey exterminating because of a concern of what may have traveled with us. I wanted it addressed prior to unpacking. As far as the exterior, Frey thoroughly sprayed the exterior of the home and we were only chased by one persistent wasp. My suggestion is to maybe exaggerate your problem and that way Frey will bring a strong enough solution to address what may be your problem.

We hired this company to exterminate our house in which we were leasing. The lease ended only two months after they came out. They tried to charge $250 to cancel, what I assumed was a contract that we were unaware of. When we called to cancel after seeing the charge, the supervisor was even more unaccommodating than the first person who answered the phone. We explained that we only signed up for a one time job, but they weren’t hearing it. He threatened to charge another $250.00 on the card and when we hung up, he did just that. Poor customer service and very rude. TF we paying for somewhere we don’t live?! Thank God for bank claims.

We knew there was rodent activity in the attic when we bought the new place, but we didn’t know that the rodents were rats. We also didn’t realize that we had a large number of roof rats coming into our new garage. Hairy took care of them in a surprisingly short time and then was very careful to check every nook and cranny which they could use to get into the house. So far there has been no sign of rats in the attic, and the situation in the garage is much improved, In spite of the garage being a much more difficult place to seal off from rodents. If you need to get rid of mice or rats quickly, this is your guy. He did a great job and if we need rodent extermination again he will certainly have our business.

I had a flea problem and no matter how many flea bombs we put in our house, or treated the pets, the fleas managed to come back each time. From the moment Bulwark and I connected, everyone has been extremely professional and knowledgeable of their services and products. Our tech Eddie, carefully explained everything he was going to do for our Flea problem and even shared some personal experiences to help us understand the root of our problem. While exterminating the fleas, Eddie also found spider nest we had no idea existed and he took care of them and made sure they wouldn't be coming back. I love that Bulwark realistic and knows that pest will find a way to come back if our neighbors aren't treating their homes as well. They offer a continuous service to come back out every 60 days after your initial appointment. This will ultimately make sure your pest problem will not happen again. Thank you so much for your help. I've attached a picture of one of the spiders nest that Eddie got rid of while taking care of our Flea problem.
