Ask our pest exterminators!

Do I need pest control services in the winter?

Believe it or not, yes, you do! Rats, rodents, and some bug species are particularly problematic during winter, crawling into your home, seeking warmth, and munching on your wires, walls, and other materials.

If you let professional pest control companies do regular checks, you can avoid these unannounced visitors year-round.

Are the treatment ingredients safe for children and pets?

Our exterminators use pet-friendly, family-friendly, and eco-proven treatments. The reputation we have is a result of years of caring for the community, as well as respecting and knowing rules and regulations.

You, your family, pets, and plants will all be safe after our exterminators are done working.

How can I prevent pests from entering my home?

You can seal all entry points or check if some need sealing. Keep your home clean at all times as much as possible, and make sure moisture is not trapped and unventilated for long. Throw away garbage regularly, and take good care of your yard and the outdoors around the home.

And as a last resort, it’s a good idea to set up barriers and traps. If you still have doubts about treatments or general advice, let us inspect and suggest a suitable pest control service if needed.

Why do I have recurring pest problems?

The reappearing of pests may be due to various reasons, such as incomplete treatments from previous pest control companies, environmental factors, structural issues, or sanitation problems. It can also be due to unknown breeding sites, cross-infestation, rarely some resistance to treatments, or irregular preventive treatments.

You can avoid recurring problems like these with our proven residential pest control that comes with a Satisfaction Guarantee.

How do I get rid of bed bugs?

First, inspect your home; check mattresses, bed frames, and furniture – keep an eye out for tiny black spots, shed skins, or even the bugs themselves! Next, clean the home and declutter, vacuum, and change bedsheets (as often as possible). Once you see an infestation, seal the infected items and use a cover to trap the bugs.

Pull furniture away from walls. Inform your neighbors, too, because infestations can easily spread to surrounding areas (especially in buildings). Then, you can wait for the exterminators to arrive.

Does local Matthews, NC climate worsen these problems?

In a way, yes. Overall, the global climate changes altered the living conditions for all pests. Generally, pests like warmer and more humid areas in which to thrive. Earth’s climate changed, and of course, the local area climate became even warmer and slightly more humid than it already was. This makes pests a bit more resilient – but we’re onto them!

Our Garanty

Residential pest control done right!

The numerous 5-star ratings of locals like you established us as the trusted and go-to exterminator of the area. With over 80 years of experience, we can efficiently help you get rid of:

  • Cockroaches/roach control
  • Ants

  • Mice
  • Bed bugs

You get modern, safe, and reliable options

For your ultimate safety, old-school solutions are a big no! While some still use them, we don’t. They have higher toxicity levels, which taint the water and land, may intoxicate animals, and are dangerous for humans, too.

The good news is that you get safe solutions, but also:

  • $30 OFF on your first service
  • You see accountability because we vouch for what we do
  • Reliant on biodegradable materials that cause zero-damage
  • You can rely on reliable customer service
  • You get proven neighborly know-how since 1940

Apply some DIY preventive methods

You can make it all more manageable and safe for you and your family by:

  • Keeping your kitchen clean: Wipe down countertops, sweep floors, and clean up spills daily. Vacuum as often as you can. Do not leave dishes in the sink overnight​.
  • Storing food properly: Store all food, including pet food, in airtight containers. Food that belongs in the fridge must stay there; otherwise, you’re serving pests some good treats and luring them in! Seal all your food properly after each use.
  • Taking out the trash regularly: Empty indoor trash bins daily and use bins with tight-fitting lids. Keep outdoor trash bins away from your home's entry points​.
  • Keeping the moisture levels balanced: Fix any leaks immediately, use dehumidifiers in damp areas, and get proper ventilation in bathrooms and kitchens​.
  • Decluttering regularly: Keep areas clutter-free, especially basements, attics, and storage areas. Organize and dispose of unnecessary items when needed​.

Preventing infestations is not too difficult when you know what you’re doing. But, at some point, DIY can only do so much, and you need to leave it to us and our environmentally friendly pest control methods that work even more efficiently.

Same Day Service

Get reliable emergency pest control

Yes, pest removal can be urgent, especially if it wasn’t caught on time or homeowners don’t notice early on. Of course, local climate and specific seasons play their part too.

It’s better to be safe than sorry!

Once you suspect fast-spreading infestations, don’t postpone emergency pest control and be mindful of the risks:

  • Health risks: Illnesses like salmonella, hantavirus, West Nile virus​, allergic reactions, and even heart attack.
  • Property damage: Termites and carpenter ants cause significant damage to your home’s structure. Rodents damage electrical installation, causing fires or dangerous electrical failures.

When you get immediate help, you prevent material damages and infestation from spreading to neighboring areas or units, especially in multi-family dwellings​.

Get Same-Day service Monday through Friday, except holidays. If you call before noon, you get a Next-Day Service guarantee for services scheduled in the business days. On business days, you can reach us from 8 AM–5 PM, Saturdays until 1 PM (because on Sundays, we’re closed and rest from the pests!)

The staff was very friendly, professional and not pushy at all about the service. I would hire them in the future.

Brooke L.


I am a long time customer--always satisfied with the service. Last time however, there were still a few spiderwebs on the house-- I called and they sent someone out right away for a thorough redo. I am still a very satisfied customer. Great customer service from office to service staff.

Ruth Roper


Great! Everyone was considerate of my time and inconvenience. Also, every single person I spoke to or met was professional, courteous and friendly.

Cheryl B.


We've used Black Pest for the past 16yrs. Started with our first home and we've continued to use them for each home after moving twice. Always professional, easy to work with, their treatments are effective and in the few times we've needed additional treatments between scheduled visits, they've come out at no additional charge. Have recommended to many neighbors and friends who have same experience.

Kevin Reyes


I’ve used Black Pest for over 10 years and have never had a bad experience. They even respond when I call about seeing a bug or two in my house.
