my family and I were victims of a bed bug infestation from a large multi-unit building that we moved into and my family had them for the third time and I pray because today we found out we had him the third time was the day my sister began to break down and cry 3 times in a row and then I knew that I had to do something so I began to pray and to look and thumb tack him upand the first company came up was Williams Company ProTech and he had the most reviews so I decided to read his reviews and when I read his reviews I was blown away because everything that I was told about bed bugs or wrong because I was told they were difficult hard to get rid ofand you will have them forever and he was getting rid of them he was having much success in fact his reviews blow me away so I decided to hire him the first thing that I noticed about William was that he was punctual he is very professional and very trustworthy right away I felt at home with him and I felt at ease I've asked him many many questions and never had another family member asking questions and he's always answered them I have had him he's on his second treatment with me and so far I'm 100% satisfied that he has done the best job that he can do the greatest blessings is that emotionally we're not devastated anymore I look forward to the day when I can say I'm completely thoroughly clean from bed bugs but it looks good for right now he is my life time choice

I had such a positive experience working with Venom. I received a quote immediately after posting via Thumbtack. Joe was prompt, professional and honest. He came the next day to inspect for bed bugs and luckily, I didn't have them. After researching many different companies he was by far the most affordable and professional. I would highly recommend him!

Professional, courteous, prompt response and honest! I called for an inspection due to bits on my arms. I'd saved anything I thought might be a sign of a pest for George to look at. His advice and insights gave me much comfort and his integrity helped me feel I could trust him. He even guided me to consult a termite specialist and didn't speculate on one of the samples. George is confident in his ability to take care of your needs, but never pushy. It turned out I don't have bed bugs but I would recommend Gorilla Pest Control if you are concerned that you do!

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!

Howard with Five Star Pest control was incredibly efficient and genuinely kind. After a bed bug issue in my apartment became all too clear, I found Howard on Thumbtack and he extensively walked me through the process of preparation for fumigation. Howard stopped by at my home for the initial visit and I saw significant improvement in decline of bugs. He phoned me several time to check in on me and inquire about the status of my dilemma. After two weeks, he came by again for a follow-up and it's now been over 20 days with NO bed bugs! Thanks to Howard and Five Star Pest Control not only for a successful fumigation but for exceptional service!! I can't stress enough how grateful I am for the service during this stressful experience. Just call him, and you'll be able to tell in the friendly tone of his voice and conversation that you're dealing with quality. Thanks again!

Robert and his trainee (I'm so bad with names!!) were very professional, knowledgeable, nice, and discreet (bed bugs are embarrassing!!). We chose them because they are able to use the bed bug dogs, and if the bugs are found are able to exterminate using heat instead of chemicals, which was very important to us. One of the ways that we know they are nice and honest is the fact that no bugs were found! :) We did find an actual bed bug months ago and had someone else come out and also say there was no evidence of an infestation. But, we couldn't shake the fear that more may have hatched from the one that was found. And for some reason we really liked the ability to use the bed bug sniffing dog. We can now sleep easy! Thanks!!

Bed bugs are Satan's children. You don't want to deal with them. I worked with Chad, and he helped my wife and I get through it. He was polite, understanding, helpful and de-stressing from start to finish. He arranged Vikane fumigation of our belongings, and inspected our cars and bedroom for a fair price. He did more for us than he had to so that we'd have some peace of mind. That last word is important. Forget the mattress, bed bugs get into your mind. Someone friendly like Chad helps you reclaim your sanity.

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!

Ultiprotech is totally awesome! I'm the sort of person that really,really hates bugs, sometimes keeping me up at night, so I can seek and destroy the critters. I am really glad to had hired Ultiprotech, Lamberto provided outstanding friendly advice and treatment regarding my pest control problem with roaches/ants in my home. He set me at ease and laid out a game plan for my home to stay bug free after the job. I really appreciate his thorough commitment in his work and his down to earth customer service.

Would recommend ECO to anyone and everyone who is in need of a brilliant exterminating company at affordable prices!

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.
