This review was a long time coming (mostly because i wanted to forget about the whole ordeal). I don't know where we got bed bugs from but, we had bed bugs. It was the worse experience of my life but Brent from Sleep Tight Pest Control Solutions came in, assured me that they were going to take care of my issue and they definitely did. Even though I still dream that they are crawling on me I no longer see them and i have been bed bug free for 8 months and counting.

Tayo was very thorough and took care of our bed bugs and fleas on his first visit. The only reason I did not give five stars is because his assessment for when we could go back to our house was wildly different from what he originally told us, which caused a lot of problems when having to find out where to stay and where to board our dog. I also wished he had been more upfront with his instructions for aftercare, but he did offer to answer any text messages or phone calls on the subject and he kept his word on that. He also comes with a 6 month guarantee which is terrific and very appreciated. Overall, we were very grateful for his assistance and no pests are here anymore; just a little bit more of clear communication was needed.

We had a problem with bed bugs. John came to our home, inspected and exterminated. He was extremely knowledgeable. He provided follow-up information. When we contacted him for additional treatment, he was available for service on the same day. We are very happy with the service that was provided.

I contacted Harpoon Pest solutions base off of their reviews and the free inspection. My technician was Quincy J. Mr. Quincy came out and inspected my home for bed bugs. It was discovered that I did have bed bugs in my home. This has been a stressful experience for my family but Quincy has made it a lot easier to bear. His customer service is outstanding he has always been available for all my questions and concerns. I just received my first treatment and the day after I had some concerns, Quincy immediately came back out to my home to inspect. So far I am extremely impressed with my pest control services. If you want empathy, knowledge and great customer service chose Harpoon pest solutions.

One of our rental properties had cat fleas. We used 3 "bombs" in different rooms ourselves, but it didn't solve the problem. We received very prompt treatment, the perimeter of the property was also treated, and we received clear directions for follow-up (which include vacuuming for 10 days). The flea problem was resolved, the price was reasonable, and the exterminator was friendly and professional.

During a visit from an exterminator for another issue in my residential neighborhood, i was informed that I had termites. Orkin was 1 of the 3 suggested professional companies from Thumbtack and I decided to contact 2. 1 company provided a quote over the phone for service but Stephen, from Orkin, scheduled an appointment to review my home. After review, Stephen advised that my issue was flying ants and not termites. So grateful for honest professionals.

I have never worked with ANY company with this level of customer service! They are just doing their job, but they do it with such EXCELLENCE, and grace, that to them; it's "no big deal!" Well... I'd like to say; that it IS a big deal. This company has succeeded my expectations above and beyond what I could have even imagined. I would recommend them to anybody looking for a bed- bug removal service. We do travel AAU sports and stay in hotels often, so whenever we hear conversation of bed bugs we refer them to East Coast Heat Guys. If we ever bring bed bugs back home again from our travels, we will be coming back to them ! I can't thank them enough for how comfortable and taken care of they made us feel throughout this entire process! Bed bug free for months now. Hopefully never again!  Thank you, thank you, thank you!  A million thumbs up!

We called on a Tuesday and spoke with Sabrina, who was very knowledgable and able to answer all of my questions. She was also able to confirm we had bed bugs by allowing me to text her a picture of what I had found. By chance, we were able to schedule our treatment the very next day. The service men arrived on time, reviewed the removal of some important and often forgotten items with us and called later that day with an update, as promised. In addition to all of this, Sabrina provided me with a number to contact her directly to answer any questions since we had only one night to prepare the house. We couldn't ask for anything more.

John is amazing. He was really determined in getting rid of bedbugs from my house and he did. I finally had a good sleep because of him. He treated as if its his own house. He made sure he treated each and every corner of the mattress, box spring and carpet. He initially told two treatments but after I found one more bug, I texted him and he came over to do additional treatment for free. He knew all the chemicals he used and explained me the benefits of each. He even treated the electrical outlets. If you want to eliminate bedbugs from your house, this is the guy you have to go to.

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.
