When I was looking for a professional to deal with bed bugs, I called several places to first ask questions and get information. David from Integrated Pest Solutions was the only one that answered my questions over the phone before being hired. He was very knowledgeable, explained the process, and was very reassuring that he would work with me until the problem was taken care of. When he came to the house, he was very professional, asked about my concerns, and answered more of my questions as they came up. Several days after the treatment David contacted me to see how things were going and if I had any concerns. I like fact that it is part of the treatment to schedule a second visit to the house to inspect and treat as needed. I highly recommend David and Integrated Pest Solutions.

This company is awesome. We came back from vacation to find our house was infested, INFESTED, with bed bugs..... we had no idea where they came from. It seemed as though we had them before vacation but we were unaware, since we were gone they traveled the house searching for human blood. They where everywhere in every closet (5 closet) on most beds and all over the living room, walls, in the bathroom, and just everywhere. I just died! I called the company - they came the next day (although we left that night) - we left our house for 3 weeks because I could not live in that condition. Crow treated our WHOLE house during the 3 weeks with 3 treatments. They had a plan and we followed it exactly. We did not have to throw anything out or buy anything new. With us coming back form vacation we did not have that much money, they were super affordable and very easy to work with. We never felt judged. We have been bed bug free for 2 years now and I hope that it is like that forever. Crow is the best and it there for all your pest control needs. Thank you Crow.

This guy actually helped me out initially thru fb vid chat. I showed him some bites on my legs (turn out to be bed bugs) and he had me show him the bed, mattress etc via cell cam. After seeing wat he needed to see he was over in a flash kicking ass. No more bed bugs!

Let me first start off by saying that Clean Pest Solutions has something that other exterminators and big, well known extermination companies don’t have.... HONESTY! I got Clean Pest Solutions information after posting my thumbtack ad, looking for a bed bug exterminator. We were told by Orkin (who came out to inspect) that it would cost us $1100-$1800 to treat our whole house. Although we wanted to treat the problem quickly, we also wanted to shop around a little and see who had the best guarantee and tools to deal with this. Chris offered to come out and inspect for us and come to find out, IT ISN’T BED BUGS! Chris was so honest about his findings and didn’t even try to upsell us on a preventative treatment because he didn’t feel the need to expose our family and my son to pesticides based on his findings (or lack there of). He gave us the best news we could’ve hoped for. Chris also left us with a few sticky traps free of charge just in case we experience any bites or such because he was honest saying it’s possible he missed something not seen by the eye. AWESOME SERVICE! Would highly recommend.

The technician (Sanderson) helped to take everything outside which not apart of the quote. It was pretty late when he finally finished...Amazing... feel blessed and I can sleep better at night... no bugs..Great experience and my expectations was meet.

Vladimir of Windy City Bed Bug Specialists is extremely professional. I felt very confident after just talking with him on the phone about resolving our bed bug issue. He showed up right on time for our appointment and he did a very thorough inspection. He was very knowledgeable and personable and I felt very comfortable having him in our home. He did the two treatments as explained and we have been free of bed bugs since then. I highly recommend Vladimir and his company.

Bed bugs were literally ruining my life. The lack of sleep made my work performance suffer and I eventually got fired. I was weakened so much that my immune system suffered and I was sent to the hospital. I searched on thumbtack looking for a price I could afford and this popped up. Donald is literally my hero. He came in and got rid of all of them. I can now sleep peacefully at night and my health has improved. I definitely recommend this exterminator.

I'm very impressed with the results. Alejandro showed up on time, explained the process and kept it simple so I could understand, showed me where some of the bed bugs were hiding (I had no idea), and followed up a few days later. His work is truly admirable and would highly recommend him to anybody who is having issues with pests. Thank you Alejandro, I'm completely pest free now!

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.

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.
