Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

Are bed bugs common in Seattle?

Seattle has appeared on rankings that identified the top bed bug cities in the country. The Washington State Department of Health has information for renters and homeowners who are battling a bed bug problem. For immediate help, contact one of the best bed bug exterminators in Seattle to create a treatment plan that will get rid of your bed bug infestation.

How do I choose a pest control company in Seattle?

Compare the best exterminators in Seattle online, and pay close attention to the ratings and reviews. Reading the reviews will give you insight into the companies’ quality of work, professionalism and perhaps even pricing.

Another step you might want to take is making sure the pest control company is licensed. The Washington Pesticide Management Division provides licensing and recertification to structural pest control companies.

Finally, you’ll want to receive a few free estimates from several companies you’re considering. These estimates will help you get an idea of how much pest control services will cost you — and which company is offering the better deal.

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.

Spoke to multiple exterminators about the ant army invading our kitchen. All of them were so unbelievably sales-y trying to trick you into contracts. Whitworth was the only company who was completely transparent. On top of that, they had the best user feedback and the cheapest price. The job itself has just started but so far our technician Keola has been awesome.

I highly recommend Professional Pest Control Inc. for your pest control needs. We unfortunately had a bed bug infestation and were clueless about how to eradicate the problem swiftly. Jim was extremely responsive through the whole process from start to finish. A few of the bigger companies gave us the run around and price gouged the hell out of the treatment. Not PPCI, they gave us an honest and fair quote for the amount of work that needed to be done. Jim came out within two days of initial Thumbtack quote, inspected the situation, and got right to work that day. I was terrified at the first realization that we had BBs but thankfully Jim eased all of my worries and concerns with his relatable and professional demeanor. I can not thank Jim and PPCI enough for the exceptional services provided by them. If you are seeking bedbug extermination or any other kind of pest control service Professional Pest Control Inc. should definitely be your go to!
