Chris was very responsive and respectful on my request for his services. He took plenty of time to talk to me prior to me officially hiring him, and listened to my concerns with care. He got me in as quickly as possible and did a very thorough job while explaining the process and where the bugs like to live. I highly recommend him!!

Rob from Home Free Pest Control was very thorough and quick in getting to our house. Since the initial application, the pest count is down substantially. Only bugs we've been finding have been dead ones! That's a successful engagement in my book. The 90 day guarantee is also very attractive, as opposed to most 30 day warranties from larger companies.

Wow. I lost my mind when I found out I had bedbugs. At first, I thought I should just pack up and move (or walk off a cliff). Instead I took a few breaths and made some extermination phone calls and I thank my lucky stars that I was guided to Gregory Sofio. Not only did he talk me off the cliff and out of moving, he did it in such a calming, laid-back manner that my mind was immediately put at ease. He gently let me know everything was going to be just fine and he thoroughly instructed me on everything I had to do to prepare myself for his arrival. At first it seemed very overwhelming, but with his assurance it ended up being quite simple. He was prompt in his response and he set up an appointment quickly. The day of the appointment he was on-time, he was such a delight and funny, too. He talked me through the process and showed me how he uses heat to kill the bugs and their eggs. He is extremely knowledgable. It was so nice that he was using heat and not chemicals. Then I left for the afternoon and did my work and some errands while he stayed at the house exterminating the bugs. He politely called me when he was finished and I came back home very confident in his abilities. I slowly put my home back together. My piece of mind was re-established and I haven't had another bed bug in my place since. I highly recommend Gregory. He is top notch. A+.

I have been using Patriot Pest Solutions for years to keep my house free of ants, spiders and stink bugs. They come in the spring and do a treatment and I'm good for the whole spring and summer. I've also used them for any other issue I have had including a yellowjacket huge hive and mice. I first used them when I bought my house and we discovered a huge carpenter ant infestation. We were mortified. They put us at ease and the ants were gone within 2 days. I highly recommend them!

Jim and his highly trained team have been treating my home for over twelve years. Everything from carpenter ants to stink bugs, mice, wasps, bats, and other wildlife issues has been tackled by Jim in a very professional and humane fashion, and with very reasonable rates! I have called on weekends with "emergencies" (a mouse in the middle of the family room, hearing a bat in the walls, what I thought was something in the chimney, etc) and they are very responsive and patient. Thankfully, the mice have been made to go elsewhere, the bats have been sealed out of the eaves, and we have not had the rash of stinkbugs and ants we began with. So very glad to have found Quality Pro when we moved to Westchester all those years ago!

I had the pleasure of working with Jeremy and his team at Rest Easy Pest Control just a few months ago when I thought I might have a bed bug problem. The first thing that Jeremy did was calm me down and explain that this was, in fact, not the end of the world and if I did have bedbugs they would take care of it. The next morning, his team arrived with their dog who did a thorough, non-invasive inspection of my apartment, concluding that I did not have bed bugs. I was very pleased with how quickly they came to me, how professional they were, how clean the dogs were, and how honest they were with their assessment. Shortly thereafter I recommended Rest Easy to my family member who had a client with a very bad bedbug problem. Jeremy and his team worked with my mother's client from inspection through eradication of every last bug. They did a fantastic job, had reasonable fees and were true professionals who I would recommend again and again.

I had an excellent experience with Braman, with special thanks to Ben. From the very beginning I got quick responses to all my questions. I chose Braman after a couple of conversations with Ben. He gave me the confidence that I was dealing with a reputable, professional company that was going to deliver results, not just show up, do a job & disappear. My elderly mother's home had bed bugs--lots of them. I had to get her help even though I was 300 miles away. Communication & trust were really important to me. I talked to a number other companies that left me uneasy. Everyone had different opinions on the best treatment plan. Ben helped me sort all that out & provided advice that made the most sense. I had a question after the job & Ben was on-site the next day just to makes sure everything was OK. Erin in the business office, techs Jaime and Mark were consistently professional, helpful & thorough. I'd recommend Braman to anyone.

About

HotBugs exterminates bedbugs using a proprietary heat extermination process. The infested space and surrounding walls are heated to a temperature above 125°F, killing all bedbugs and their eggs. Heat extermination is safe for you and the environment. No pesticides or other chemicals are used during the process, ensuring that your family and pets are safe. Not only have pesticides become ineffective as bedbugs have developed resistance, but pesticides don't work without direct contact on insects. With the heat process, we don't have to know where the bedbugs are; we just need to know that they are there. Please contact us if you think you have bedbugs or tired of the ineffectiveness of other methods.

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 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.

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.

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.
