Joe was amazing! I was freaking out when I realized I had bed bugs since I had just bought all new furniture. I spent a couple days trying to take care of the problem itself, but nothing worked, so I looked into help right away. Joe was available the next day and came right on time! He only took a few minutes to spray the place and he gave me great advice. He was truly a blessing and his quote came in WAY lower than Orkin or Terminix. Highly recommend him! If you think you have bed bugs, don't waste your time trying to take care of it yourself. Call him right away. Trust me, it's worth the peace of mind!

They came out immediately after I found bed bugs in my roommate's bed. I was horrified & embarrassed, paranoid that my entire condo was infested. While I have a tendency to overreact, the cool person that they sent out was exactly what I needed. He had a great sense of humor, gave me a direct & exact quote, was honest & extremely quick & efficient. I would highly recommend.

We had a bed bug problem that snuck up on us out of the blue. Herstine's Pest Solutions came to us via Thumbtack. Their price was very affordable. Their knowledge/experience on bed bugs was formidable. After they treat the problem they come back in 2wks for a progress report /checkup and give a 30 day warranty. Great friendly customer service. We are pleased with the results and price!

After having multiple kids stay at our house, my kids started getting bit up and after finding out that it was bed bugs (unfortunately) I lost days of sleep. Greg came to my house yesterday to spray for (unfortunately) bed bugs and my husband and I just loved him. From the 1st call of him knowing pretty much everything about these nightmares to his affordable prices to his initial visit which he showed up EARLY. He gave us so much advice and was so knowledgeable and down to earth. I can tell he knew what he was doing and genuinely cared about his business. I’ll give it a few weeks and update my status as far as how fast the spray works. But customer service and punctuality he gets an A+ in my book. Thanks Greg 😉

I was horrified to learn I had bed bugs. George was the first person I spoke to after wasting hundreds of dollars on extermination that did not work. George gave me a quote on the phone for heat fumigation treatment. He then came to my house a couple of days later and treated my house. His team was awesome. Theyndid a great job and I haven't had any bites since. Would highly recommend him to anyone.

We experienced the devastating effects of finding out that we had bed bugs and Joe, our service technician was amazing! He came out for the initial inspection and arrived on time and he was thorough, efficient and told us exactly what we needed to do step by step to get rid of the pests. He also was understanding and patient with our questions. We set a date a week from the consultation to have him treat our home and we called him a couple of times with follow up questions and he made himself available, cheerfully, each time to answer our additional questions. He also gave us an extremely fair price and did a thorough job!! He was wonderful to work with and made a very stressful situation much better!! It has only been two days after the treatment but we have not seen any sign of those terrible pests......and with Joe's educating us thoroughly, we KNOW what to look for. He is the best!!! Thank you!

We had a problem with bed bugs. We tried to take care of them ourselves. But the problem got worse! We hired a local company, and the company was only here for an hour. That same night. The bedbugs were still around! I swear we just pissed them off. I couldn't sleep. My family members were no longer coming over and I knew they felt uncomfortable with me going to their houses. Anyways. The original company would not want to come back to retreat. They said they offer NO guarantee on their bedbug treatments! I was fed up with that company. So I immediately found Sam and his team from a quick google search. Boy was I glad I found them. The technicians that came out really took their time doing a full bed bug inspection and treatment. I didn't know bed bugs could climb up walls or into your wall electrical outlets. The guys opened up an electrical outlet and showed me a bed bug nest! I was grossed out....but I was also happy because these guys knew what they were doing and were getting to the source of my problem. They also offer a long warranty to give me peace of mind. I have been sleeping like a baby since they've done the bedbug treatment. I highly recommend this company.

Active Pest control is honest, reliable, professional, clean and fast company for all your pest control problems from termites, bugs, spiders, bees, rodents, ants, ticks, and waterbugs. We got several quotes but was very impressed with Active Pest Control. They were fast in getting a termite quote to us. They were honest in the problems we had and gave us two options of controlling our termite problem. Van came out and inspected the termites. He did a thorough job of inspecting the termite areas and gave a thorough report of details of all the work that needed to be done. He gave us a good price and he was not pushy in trying to get you to do the termite work. Above all, the termite service was awesome from start to finish! I was surprised that out of all the other Pest Control company that came out he was the only one that came with shoe covers to protect our house from getting dirty. I love that extra attention to detail that they provide with their pest control service. I would recommend them to all my clients since I am a realtor and they provide great Pest Control and Termite Service with professionalism. Will definitely use them again! Two thumbs up!

I had a excellent experience from start to finish with 24 hour termite. From the initial phone call I spoke to Gus who was very helpful and was able to inspect my house on the same day. I've never had a pest problem so before I decided to go with them I called several different companies, 24, was without a doubt the most thorough w/ that had me feeling the most confident out of all the companies, not too mention the price was extremely lower then the other major companies. I had initially called because of swarming termites coming from inside my house, I mean hundreds!! of flyin bugs coming out of my wall. The treatment was set up within the same week and I havn't had any problems since the treatment. The whole process was way easier then i thought it would be, thanks Gus and 24 hour termite team!

I don’t know where to begin. I’ve never had such a pleasant experience as I have with ECO BED BUG LA. They provided the up most excellent quality service! Would recommend ECO to anyone and everyone who is in need of a brilliant exterminating company at affordable prices! Had a major bed bug problem and they were extremely professional, honest and knowledgeable on tackling the problem heads on. Continuously following up with me throughout the course of the process to ensure all was going well and the problem was solved. My children and I can finally sleep easy knowing that we no longer have bed bugs thanks to ECO BED BUG LA!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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 much does it cost to kill bed bugs?

The cost of bed bug extermination depends primarily on how widespread the pest infestation is and how many rooms need to be treated. Other factors that can affect bed bug extermination costs are the amount of clutter in the location, additional furniture that needs to be treated, and construction of the home. Pest management professionals often have rates for room treatments, which can vary based on these factors. As an example, a pest management company treating a 10-by-15-foot room with light infestation might charge clients about $250, while the same size room with a heavy infestation and large amounts of clutter might cost the clients $300-$400. Clutter and heavier bed bug populations mean more product and longer labor time for the workers. Rates will vary from company to company, and from region to region, but the national average bed bug extermination cost is $320-$400. Bed bug heat treatments are an alternative way to exterminate these pests. Heat treatments are typically charged per square foot and tend to cost more than chemical or non-chemical spray solutions. Although effective, they are not usually recommended for occupied spaces, as the extreme temperatures can damage televisions, window dressings and other home furnishings.

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.

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.

Can you see a bed bug?

Bed bugs are visible to the naked eye, but depending on where they are in their life cycle they can be hard to see. Adult bed bugs are the easiest to spot. According to the EPA, they are roughly the size of an apple seed and the height of a credit card. Adults are flat and oval-shaped, have six legs, and are rusty red in color. Bed bug larvae, also referred to as nymphs, are white-yellow or translucent in color and are much harder to spot due to their small size. The nymphs go through five stages of life, shedding an exoskeleton at each stage. Throughout these stages the nymphs grow in size from approximately 1.5 millimeters to approximately 4.5 millimeters. Bed bug eggs can be the most challenging to see as they are roughly 1 millimeter — about the size of a pinhead — and are white or clear. Bed bugs tend to be more active at night, as this is when they feed.
