The bed bugs, in our house, were terrorizing a few members of my household. After discovering the source of the itches and sores, I immediately began a search for terminator of bed bugs. Robert, from RamKil, was the first to respond to my project request and the 3rd or 4th exterminator I spoke to. He gave me a quote that was on par with the larger companies, like Orkin and Truly Nolen. Dealing with him, however, was a far more pleasant experience. After reading his reply to my request, I decided to call him. He answered the phone himself, not a computer. He was very pleasant and professional during the call. He allowed me to explain the situation, asked a few questions to clarify some of the information I'd given him, and then explained a little more about the bugs themselves, and how the process would work once I decided to move forward with the extermination (and I intended to waste no time). Once I told the same thing to my sister, we decided to choose Robert for our pest control needs. I called him back and we were able to schedule an appointment and he emailed me a prep sheet of things I needed to do to make it easier, faster and more effective when he treated. I did get the impression that he is very busy, however, and that I was fortunate enough to be in the right location, with the right problem, at the right time (he really did seem to enjoy himself, and was quite enthusiastic about killing bed bugs and restoring peace to their victims). When he arrived for our first treatment, he was very polite, friendly and professional. He explained everything, went a little more into detail about bed bugs and their life cycles, and why it was almost impossible to get rid of them by yourself. I decided he was most definitely right after hearing his report afterwards, and hearing all the places he found them that we never even thought to look. Hire a professional if you are being attacked by these things. We left, he did his thing and called when he was done. He explained what he found and clarified some questions I had about returning to the house. I would definitely hire him again. I was extremely impressed by Robert. The fact that he loved killing those things made the experience that much better. In fact, his enthusiasm reminded me much of a hobbiest and their attention to detail, making me that much more confident in his effectiveness killing them all.

Gerald helped me diagnose my potential bed bug problem for no cost at all. He took the time to speak with me on the phone after-hours and gave me genuine feedback about the type of bug I was worried about based on photos that I sent him. I appreciate that he spent his time helping me and that he wasn't seeking any financial gain; he is an expert in this field and truly just wants to help.

What Terminix couldn't do in 3 treatments and $1000, MrBugGuy did in 2 for a quarter of the price. Recommend Michael and his assistant very highly. He is prompt when called and did a thorough job. Very pleased!

They are very prompt, polite and will listen to your concern with open ears. The job with our bed bug problem is not completely done yet, as they still have another treatment to be completed in our home before the problem is to be solved as they have completed one part of a two part process, but with their expertise on the job I am hopeful that the job will be to our satisfaction. Bed bugs are a horrifying problem. Do Not try and tackle this problem on your own if any way possible get a professional to get the rid of them. Thank you, Diane M.

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.
