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!!

First before I begin anything I would like to say that Jeff was my exterminator and even though he had another job to go to he actually took the time to call them and postpone it so he could spend a good hour talking to me about how everything works exactly what they do and pretty much gave me what I would refer to as a college course and bed bug history and not only how to get rid of them but how they come in the first place every single piece of equipment he use he explain to me what it was how it worked and everything from the health hazard of it so why it's better than using things you could buy at something like Home Depot or a what I will call brand name company which I will not mention because it is irrelevant compared to the job that he did not only was he kind enough to explain everything A nd go through every single piece of furniture even all the way to things laying around like boxes and electronics outside of the actual job he was extremely kind and I think we bonded on a note that me and the fact that we had a bed bug infestation seeing that it was no big deal as we were able to joke around and relate to things in life even while he was doing 200% of the extermination he took time to answer any questions for a bed bug infestations all the way to talking about things that we could relate to such as music which made me a lot more, knowing that there was bugs infested in my house one of the highest notes that I can praise on this company especially jeff is that he did this whole job while his wife was practically in labor he did not let that affect his performance in doing his job words more money Kim replace what he has done for my family as far as getting this situation effects he is a hell of a guy and so is his company and he knows every single possible thing there is to know about anything from bugs to wildlife there's not enough pats on the back that I could give him for how much you sold an A+ would be an insult compared to how much he's done if you're going to choose any company regardless if you're rich or not wealthy this is the company to go with in the end this questionnaire as for a complaint of what could be done better my only complaint would be that next time he has a kid he should stay at home as he has proven himself over and over again with his company as the customer comes first even over a newborn

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!

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.

    Starting from the sales experience to the technician coming out to get rid of our bed bugs, it amazed me how professional everything was and how efficiently they got the job done, I chose to go with their heating service bc I didn't want chemicals around my family. Over a month now and still no bed bugs!

    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.

    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.

    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.
