Pest Control Services, Rodent and Animal Removal

Guaranteed Rodent Removal Services was outstanding! They came to my home and explained all the signs I had been seeing. After confirming an infestation through questioning and looking in rats' normal hiding places, they informed me about normal rodent behavior and why my attempts to rid myself of pests myself hadn't worked. They told me what their company does to eliminate the infestation and the time frame.After the first treatment, the rodents behaved exactly as I had been told they would. When the house was sealed of all rodent entry points (from the roof to the foundation) it looked like one or more animals were still trapped inside (I found droppings in places I never had before). I called Guaranteed Rodent Removal back, and they came the next day. Since then, there have been no scampering or scratching sounds, and no droppings (and I am always on the lookout). The disinfectant they sprayed after the fact made me feel like my house really was free of any rodent-related germs.The price for all this was more than I thought I'd pay, but entirely worth it, since the job was done right the first time. It's been two years, and there is no sign of rodents in my house. Even if there were, I know Guaranteed Rodent Removal would come out to dispose of them as soon as I called. Plus, they came out quickly after I put in new drywall after Hurricane Harvey, to check that nothing came in during the demolition process. Their rodent-proofing had held up; even after having my walls ripped out and the house left open for a few days, I still have no rodent issues.See more

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.

Is it safe to use an exterminator spray?

Exterminator sprays and pesticides are generally toxic, and toxicity levels can vary by product. Therefore, it’s best to speak with the best pest control specialists near you to determine the safest way to get rid of your pest problem and reduce the risk of exposure. If a pesticide is needed, it’s likely safer to let the pro spray your home. 

Keep these tips in mind if exterminator spray will be used in your home: 

  • Exterminator spray is not safe to swallow, inhale or touch. 
  • Leave the house when the spray is being applied indoors.
  • Ventilate your home by opening windows and doors upon return. 
  • Keep pets and pet supplies away from the chemicals.

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 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.

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.

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!!!

Jarison was great. He responded to my request quickly and was out the same day. Very professional and knowledgable about what needed to be done. Definitely recommend him to anyone looking to establish a relationship with an exterminator that will be responsive and reasonably priced.

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.

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.

If you are searching for an awesome exterminator, look no further because Jarison is your guy. We had a problem with roof rats, but Jarison solved that problem. When he came to evaluate our home, he spotted a rat and went straight to work. He explained what needed to be done and offered a reasonable price. Jarison was professional, thorough, and patient. Also, he made several visits to our home to make sure the problem was solved. My family and I are very appreciative and consider Jarison a friend.

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.

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.
