"So we did a professional chemical treatment ($325 just our part), washed/dried everything we owned ($75+), bought mattress covers and bed foot catchers ($225), nuvan strips for our stuff that couldnt be washed ($50) and moved out for TWO weeks, while they treated the problem. (No compensation, and we bunked with a friend- with our washed clothes already in trash bags)After all of this, we had been back in our house for 5 DAYS. When I found a nymph. Im not going to lie, I lost my GD mind and cried like a crazy person. When we brought another live bug to the complex, they offered to let us move out. Now we were stuck with the question of how to move, without bringing these tiny monsters with us. I read a ton of blogs about trying to heat treat uhaul trailers, and was in process of trying to figure out a plan to do this (in a week that it was below zero outside) when I found A2B. They suggested we heat treat the entire apartment, then immediately move our belongings out. That way anything in the apt would be killed and if there were bugs that were coming from a different apartment we would be in the clear (HOPEFULLY) if we moved immediately.My fianc and I talked it over with the apt complex, who offered to pay half ($425)(their building was being treated too) and the project commenced. I met the A2B tech, Andrew, the morning of, and he was honestly one of the best people I spoke to in this entire process. Compassionate, kind, friendly and upbeat about his job and company. Kudos to A2B for finding this stellar human (make sure you hold on to him! and give him a raise?)The treatment itself was DRASTICALLY easier than anything we did before. The only negative being that we werent allowed to pack until the night of, which lead to an exhausting night of moving into a haul. That being said, we have been in our new apartment for just over two weeks (new eggs would have hatched in 6 to 10 days) with 0 rashes or sightings of bugs. Im still semi freaked out, and look for them every time I move a sheet, but heres to those two weeks turning into two years and beyond. Anyway, I have nothing but kind, wonderful, things to say about A2B and Andrew. They treated efficiently, cost effectively, and kindly through the entire process- thank you for what you do, and letting me get some much needed rest after this nightmare.EDIT: we are now 5 weeks out from our move with no signs of bedbugs. Thanks A2B!"

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.

What are the symptoms of having bed bugs?

There are several symptoms that can indicate you have bed bugs. The first is actually seeing the little pests skittering through your house. They tend to feed at night (generally where their hosts — people or sometimes animals — are sleeping), but can come out in the day if they’re hungry enough. Adult bed bugs are rusty red in color, as thin as a credit card and the size of an apple seed. Sometimes they can be mistaken for carpet beetles or small cockroaches, so if you’re confused you can use this helpful guide by the EPA for identification. Although they are harder to see, spotting the eggs themselves is a surefire sign. Another common symptom of having bed bugs is finding the exoskeletons of the nymphs near your bedding and other bed bug-friendly locations. The more exoskeletons you find, the larger the infestation likely is, because as they mate and proliferate more and more juveniles are born and cycle through moltings. Rust-colored spots — which the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention explains are blood-filled fecal dropping that the bugs excrete on bedding and furniture — are another sign that bed bugs are living in your home. In addition, a sweet, musty odor can be an indicator of bed bugs.

What is the most effective way to get rid of bed bugs?

The EPA recommends integrated pest management as the most effective way to get rid of bed bugs. Integrated pest management (IPM) can be carried out by a pest management professional safely and swiftly. The professional will assess the level of infestation in your home or building. The pro will determine the sources of the bed bugs: whether they are hiding in one location, are occupying multiple locations in one room, or have set up camp in multiple locations throughout the house. Based on the severity of the infestation, IPM can include thoroughly cleaning the area using containment protocols (safely packing infested bedding and other items into plastic to be disinfected), the appropriate pesticide treatment, and the necessary follow-up to eliminate any new hatching eggs. The EPA recommends chemical treatments (when safely applied) because “although bed bugs may sometimes be controlled by non-chemical means alone, this approach is often very difficult, potentially less effective, and usually more resource intensive.” Use caution if you attempt to use pesticides yourself. Carefully follow directions and know that some bed bugs have developed resistance to pesticides. Pesticides that are licensed only for use by professionals are known to be stronger and should be applied with the proper tools and techniques.

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.

How do you get bed bugs?

Bed bugs can happen to anybody and there typically more than 200,000 cases in the U.S. per year. They are sneaky little pests that hitchhike into your home in a variety of ways. Getting a bed bug infestation is not a reflection on how clean a home is; bed bugs can infiltrate the cleanest of places — although their presence is easier to detect and eliminate in clutter-free spaces. Here are some tips from the EPA to prevent bed bugs from entering and taking up residence in your home:

  • Carefully inspect secondhand furniture, beds, or couches for any signs of bed bug infestation before bringing them home.
  • Use a protective cover (encasement) over mattresses and box springs to prevent bed bugs from hiding in them. Select an encasement in a light color to make bed bug spotting easier. Also choose one of a strong material that won’t tear, and check it often for holes.
  • Keep your home clutter-free to eliminate bed bug hiding spots.
  • Vacuum your home regularly and dispose of sealed vacuum bags carefully.
  • Shared laundry facilities can lead to bed bug exposure in both directions. Transport laundry in plastic bags (if you have an active infestation, use a new bag for the journey home). Remove laundry from the dryer directly into the bag and fold it at home. Use high heat to kill any potential bed bugs.
  • The EPA suggests that if you live in a multi-family home, isolate your unit by:
    • Installing door sweeps on the bottom of doors to discourage movement into hallways.
    • Sealing cracks and crevices around baseboards, light sockets, etc., to discourage movement through wall voids.
