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!

Great company!!!! I just moved to Washington and suddenly found my Xfinity box and DVD player infested with tiny little ants. It was after 5 on a Friday night and I called and emailed everyone I could find on the internet. Early Saturday morning I got a text and call from "Stop Bugging Me." They came out the same day! They explained the problem here with these little pests and they were able to remedy the immediate situation. We have a plan to eradicate the problem. I am completely confident that I got the right company to take care of the problem. They are prompt, efficient, thorough, reasonably priced and I highly recommend them.

We already use them for rodent and ant control. While they don't trap larger animals like racoons, They did come out and determine what the animal was (possum).

We have a established landscaped home and yard, and have had landscape rejuvenations several times over 20--plus years. Since the last renovation 4 years, the front and back yards had gotten overgrown, weed-ridden, mole-ridden, and pretty messy. Jorge and the crew who worked 2 full days replacing our small lawn, pruning several substantial trees, numerous shrubs, bushes, and flowering plants, weeding, and applying fertilizer, weed preventer, insect control, and beauty bark to all plant areas, left our place looking so much better than they found it. Jorge was very amenable to minor requests for adjustments, and was also very helpful in giving us hints on how to care for our lawn and plants. Their prices were very reasonable. They did a great job, and we would hire them again for similar projects.

Professional and responsive. Provided a detailed list of what my options were, including price. Explained the process, time, materials, and expectations. We had rodents trying to move into our crawl space. They were burrowing under the foundation. Within two weeks the foundation was sealed off and the rodents were exterminated. Permanent preventive measures were put in place to keep them out. This is an owner operated business and he is very conscientious about the quality of his work. Highly recommended for any of your pest control needs.

If you are looking for a knowledgeable, honest, reliable, friendly pest control company, check out the family run Eds Dead Bug. The service is top notch! ..and I know from experience. Ed came out and helped me rid my apartment of bugs after a bedbug was spotted. Eek! So whether you are in need of a routine service or a onetime "Ahh, help, I got bed bugs!" be sure to give Eds Dead Bug a call first. :)

After having a different pest company tell us we had beg bugs, we began to research options about how to get rid of them. That is how I cam across Susan and NW K9 Bed Bug Detectives. She could not have been more helpful in explaining to me what my options were, as well as asking very intelligent and pointed questions about what this person saw in our house. I ended up having her dog come out for an inspection, and the good news was that we actually did not have bed bugs!!! We did, however, have a different pest problem, which NW K9 took care of with a non-toxic option. If I could rate this company higher, I would do so. They were professional, punctual, knowledgeable, thorough--I cannot recommend them enough.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What do pest control companies do?

Pest control companies handle all aspects of bug, rodent and animal extermination or removal. Pest control professionals visit your home or office to identify the type of pest that is troubling you and offer various treatment plans — complete with clearly outlined costs. Once you and the pest control company have a signed agreement, the pro will begin treatment. Pest treatment can range from the use of spray pesticides and gel bait to live and/or kill traps. There are a wide range of types of pesticides, many of them nontoxic for humans and other small animals. This means you may be able to have your home treated for pests without harming nearby wildlife or your dog and cat. The pest control pro will carry out the treatment plan and, depending on the service agreement, provide follow-up such as emptying traps, inspecting access points, or reapplying pesticide spray if the pests return. Costs will vary based on the type of pest you are having removed and the extent of the infestation.The average national pest control price range is $80-$130. From a minor bedbug event to an entire home termite infestation, pest control companies have got you covered.

How do you get bed bugs and how do you get rid of them?

The increase in bed bug infestations in the U.S. is a result of increased travel, lack of knowledge about preventing infestations, increased resistance of bed bugs to pesticides, and ineffective pest control practices, explains the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). It’s easy to mistake bed bugs for carpet beetles or similar-looking bugs, so infestations are often not noticed when they first occur. Prevention tips include keeping areas free of clutter, regularly washing sheets and mattress covers in hot water (and don’t forget to wash the laundry bag, too), and vacuuming regularly and safely disposing of the sealed vacuum bag. Not everyone has reactions to bed bug bites, which also may be mistaken for the bites of other pests such as mosquitoes, so timely bed bug extermination depends on identification of bed bug activity. If you notice physical signs of an infestation, contact a bed bug extermination professional as soon as possible to learn about chemical and non-chemical (such as heat) treatment options. An integrated pest management plan may incorporate one or more methods.

How do you get rid of termites?

The best way to get rid of termites is to act fast. Termites are a problem that will only get worse — and no matter how much you want them to, they usually don’t magically move out on their own. There are three main types of termites: drywood, dampwood and subterranean. Drywood and dampwood termites sneak through cracks in your exterior paint, nail holes, and gaps near windows and other openings and begin to eat through your wood. Subterranean termites enter your house from the ground up by creating mud tunnels. In all cases, they survive by eating the wood of your house. The type of termites you have can steer the treatment plan.

Methods of termite extermination include fumigation, use of pesticides, and use of natural elements that are poisonous to the bugs. The extent of your termite infestation will help determine the treatment method. If you have drywood or dampwood termites that have infiltrated all aspects of the wood in your home, the pest control pro may recommend enclosing the whole house in a tent and gassing the termites via fumigation. If you have subterranean termites, often the entire footprint of the home must be treated by drilling liquid treatments into the slab or foundation of the home to exterminate the colonies. In any case, once you see signs of termites, it’s time to take action and call a pest pro.  

How much does it cost to treat a house for termites?

Termites are not only creepy-crawly, they can literally eat your house out from underneath you. Termites feed on damp and dry wood and can chomp through your house at an alarming rate. The national average pest control cost for termite extermination is $240-$400. Treatment costs can be higher for an extensive infestation. Here are some examples of average pest control costs for termites:

  • Liquid treatment of subterranean termites: $3-$4 per linear foot.
    • For $75 per year, a company may offer a maintenance plan that provides inspection of the property and renewal of the warranty.
  • Liquid treatment of subterranean termites: approximately $400 for a 2,000-square-foot home at $3-$5 per linear foot.
    • The price is higher for additional work such as foaming and drilling inside of concrete slabs.
  • Fumigation treatment of drywood termites: $1,200-$1,500 for a 30,000- to 35,000-cubic-foot home
    • Fumigation is measured in cubic feet because it fills the airspace of the home and infiltrates the wood that the termites may be colonizing. The cost of fumigation is affected by the number of levels in the home as well as the square footage.

How much does it cost to get rid of cockroaches?

Cockroaches are not only ugly, they are difficult to get rid of. Quick and resilient, they can be hard to get rid of without professional help once they have inhabited a house. Nationally, the average range for cockroach pest control cost is $80-$130. Extermination professionals typically provide a free estimate to determine the extent of the infestation. They’ll check for the main sources of the bugs, identify bug access and entry points into your home, and determine the best method for elimination. There are a variety of cockroach extermination tools including gel baits and traps, pesticide foggers, desiccants (which dry out the cockroaches), neurotoxins, and other pesticides. Pest control costs can also cover preventive measures like regular spraying and trap maintenance. Some regions of the country are much more prone to cockroach problems than others, so pest control costs may need to be part of your quarterly budget. Cockroaches love dark, humid, and warm areas and water sources, so place traps near your washer and dryer and under your sinks.
