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!!

Wife went to NYC and brought bed bugs back with her in her suitcase. Figured it out after a week of being bitten. Called Tom in the afternoon on a Wednesday and he was at my door at 9:30 am the next day. Treated our room, closet and even wife's shoes and clothing. Happy to say problem solved. He is very knowledgeable and very fair in his pricing. He takes pride in his work and he gives you a personable touch like it used to be in the old days where someone actually cared about doing a good job and not just trying to make a quick buck. I HIGHLY recommend him.

Jeff came out to do a bed bug check. He called before he left to let me know he was on his way. He was very professional and explained what he was looking for. Since he couldn't find any evidence of bed bugs he explained to me what to keep an eye out for and if I saw something to call him back. He really made me feel better about a stressful situation.

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.

My bed bug problem was mainly focused on my living room couch. But we did my bedroom just in case. Gregory was on time and went to work right away, explaining his process and what to expect. He even showed the recorded digital temp results after it was all completed. Overall it was a fairly easy experience to prepare for the heat treatment and just lots of organizing and final cleaning afterwards. But if it gets rid of the blood suckers, it's worth it. And price was on par or below most estimates I received. Definitely a good value. The best part is I don't have to worry about chemical residue or smell. And peace of mind that the whole room was cooked to death, wherever they may have been hiding (eggs to adults!).

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.

      About

      When you use Bed Bug Beagle Nose Best, you can rest assured there is no conflict of interest. We inspect and report our findings to you. We do not perform bed bug treatments. We have no incentive to find bed bugs so we can make more money by doing the treatments too. You may want to think twice about using a company that does both inspections and treatments - because this is the conflict of interest issue that Bed Bug Beagle Nose Best DOES NOT have. Human inspections are fine when there is a very noticeable bed bug problem. You need a NESDCA Certified canine team to discover the beginnings of a problem, when it will be less costly to treat and fix.

      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.

      How do you get and get rid of bed bugs?

      Bed bugs can travel into your home via luggage, secondhand furniture or clothing, and other items that have been exposed to the little pests. Bed bugs are tiny and flat (about the size of an apple seed and the height of a credit card), so they can easily hide in dark, small places and hitchhike into your home. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, most people don’t even know they’re transporting bed bugs as they travel from location to location, infecting areas as they travel. The sooner you notice a bed bug infestation in your home, the easier it is to get rid of it. The EPA suggests an integrated pest management plan to get rid of bed bug problems. This means a multi-pronged approach that takes the bug’s life cycle into account, uses chemical treatment where needed, and takes all necessary measures (use of encasements, high heat washing and drying of bedding, etc.) to stop current and future life cycles. Unless you feel confident about controlling a bed bug infestation, it can be wise to hire a pest management professional to prevent the problem from getting bigger.
