How much does an exterminator cost in Houston?

The top exterminators in Houston have different prices for their services, but you might find some who have estimated costs that are as low as $50 to $75. However, you should expect this price to change depending on your situation. For example, the treatment you require will impact the price you pay — termite control and bed bug extermination are significantly more expensive than general pest control. Another factor is the severity of the infestation.

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. 

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.

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.

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!!!

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.

I had Mr. Barillas to exterminate twice because I get paranoid about roaches. I moved into a home that had some roaches but not excessive. Mr. Barillas assured me that the problem was minor. At my request, after the first visit, he return to make sure I would be roach free. Here was very nice.

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.

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.
