Wayne is AWESOME. I requested bed bug services at 5:00am, within 5 minutes he replied, within 24 he was onsite. I never saw another bed bug after he treated. Wayne is honest, has great communication skills and works fast and neat. Zero Oder after treatment, zero bed bugs after treatment. What a PRO

I had a minor bed bug problem. Mr. Darden was very professional and very knowledgeable about his job. He made me and my family feel really comfortable. He was great and we have decided to hire him for our outdoor bugs spray for ants and other bugs. He is very reasonable with his pricing and does an excellent job. Great customer service.

They came out and did a very thorough job from initial inspection to treatment plan. They went above and beyond! Highly highly recommend them to anyone with bed bugs! Troy and his team came in an took care of it efficiently! They were very courteous and answered all questions with no hestitation. I had quotes from others but wasn't convinced that their methods would work. And one quote was highly expensive! Arete was very reasonable price! They are coming back out to check and make sure that they got them all! Very pleased mom!

Choice can be characterized in 3 words. Honest!! Honest!! Honest !! I had what we thought might be a bed bug infestation. I had four companies inspect for Bedbugs. Two of the four recommended treating for bed bugs, even though no bed bugs were found. Choice was one of two of the companies that agreed with me that treatment is not warranted in the absence of evidence. Dale placed several lures around the house to first establish evidence of an infestation. No bedbugs were ever found. I treated for fleas and it seems have fixed the problem. Choice would not even accept payment for his time. Very professional at all times, but most importantly, they were honest, which is the quality that I require of any company I do business with.

I recently used Pure Defense Pest Solutions in Atlanta Georgia and would like for everyone out there to know that we have NEVER encountered such professional, friendly . in depth care and treatment of our problem. They are the only company we know of that guarantee Bed Bug Solutions. We recently used a well known moving company to transport some goods to the just one room in a three storey house. We noticed a strange bug and because I am OCD I called them to come and look at it straight away after seeing two bugs. They confirmed it was a new infestation of Bed Bugs just confined to the one room, thank goodness! Had it spread throughout a three storey large home the problem would have been horrendous. I, personally, have never dealt with such professional and kind treatment from a pest Control Company and I have used other well known companies in the past. In future I will only deal with Pure Defense Pest Solutions. They listened to all my questions, many of them I fired at them endlessly. They answered every question with patience and great reassuring knowledge. They went the extra mile to accommodate us, regarding times and service. They deserve to be become the top Pest Solution Company in the whole of the United States. For my own personal reason, being embarrassment, as I felt "dirty" which they reassured me I was not, I am signing my name as Christina, Marietta, GA, but you are welcome to call the company and ask them for my personal cell phone number which I will permit them give to an enquirer who would like to know more from me personally. Obviously I am going to discuss claiming damages and costs from the moving company I used. Thank you so much for all you have done, and for containing the problem Pure Defense Pest Solutions Team. Thank you Kyle and Tim. - Christina, Marietta GA

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 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.

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.

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.
