Bingham’s Professional Termite and Pest Management was founded in 1964 and operates offices in Springfield and St. Petersburg. It covers cities from all over Florida, including Lutz, Tampa, Temple Terrace, Inverness, Pine Ridge, Odessa, Trinity, Bloomingdale, Palmetto, Venice, Sarasota, Belleair, Largo, and many more. The main office is in St. Petersburg at 5355 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr St N, 33703. It is a family-owned company currently run by two grandsons of the original founder. The president is certified with a license from the Florida Dept. of Agriculture and Bingham’s is proud to be the realtor’s choice for WDO (termite) inspections.
Bingham’s specializes in treating termites but it also offers services for many other common pests such as bed bugs, mosquitoes, and ants. It serves both residential and commercial properties and is a common choice for home inspections before a sale. Its most prominent service is full fumigation, which requires all people and animals to leave the home along with any sensitive materials that could be damaged or hold on to the toxins after fumigation. This treatment is most effective for getting rid of termites, though it can be used for all kinds of bugs. Customers generally seem to appreciate the fast and efficient service provided by Bingham’s technicians. Many reviews mention their excellent customer service and their quick response times. They are also great at offering effective advice on the proper way to avoid pest problems in the future.
Pricing is not clear on Bingham’s website. It does offer free inspections and appears to provide yearly or one-time treatments. According to reviews, one-time fumigation is about $150. Follow-ups for that are around $42.50, according to one review, and a yearly plan seems to be about $405. Overall, the prices seem reasonable for the area but were sometimes miscommunicated and caused distress for some customers.
Fumigation is not a particularly pet- or human-friendly process but it does appear to be quite successful once completed, according to most reviews. The downside is having to leave the house for several days at a time, especially as, according to some reviews, Bingham’s is sometimes not good at communicating when the house is clear for re-entry. Another common complaint that customers brought up is the technicians’ lack of professionalism. A few customers made claims that technicians left things broken or damaged after their visit. However, Bingham’s has been generally good at following up with customers to resolve their issues.
Overall, Bingham’s seems to be a professional and successful exterminator company. It has a few issues with careless technicians and is not the best choice for an eco-friendly treatment but it gets pretty good results and has excellent customer service.
