Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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 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.

What are the signs of having bed bugs?

There are several signs that can indicate you have bed bugs. The first is actually seeing the little pests skittering through your house. They tend to feed at night (generally where their hosts — people or sometimes animals — are sleeping), but can come out in the day if they’re hungry enough. Adult bed bugs are rusty red in color, as thin as a credit card and the size of an apple seed. Sometimes they can be mistaken for carpet beetles or small cockroaches, so if you’re confused you can use this helpful guide by the EPA for identification. Although they are harder to see, spotting the eggs themselves is a surefire sign. Another common symptom of having bed bugs is finding the exoskeletons of the nymphs near your bedding and other bed bug-friendly locations. The more exoskeletons you find, the larger the infestation likely is, because as they mate and proliferate more and more juveniles are born and cycle through moltings. Rust-colored spots — which the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention explains are blood-filled fecal dropping that the bugs excrete on bedding and furniture — are another sign that bed bugs are living in your home. In addition, a sweet, musty odor can be an indicator of bed bugs.

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.

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.

Called LeadTech for bed bug infestation. Dennis came in assessed the home and indeed found some infestation. Tackled the job with high confidence and seemed genuinely concerned with my bed bug problems and my well-being. Very friendly and very professional. First conversation started with his statement that we are a team and together we will get the job done. As it took 3 appt.and applications to complete the job, he called weekly to touch base to see how things were going. Also very prompt on time. I would recommend his service to anyone having problems with bed bugs. Almost, 2 weeks without a bite. YAY!!! Thank you Dennis.

So grateful to LeadTech. Spent time with me on the phone to understand my situation. Responded promptly and were at my house to inspect within 24 hours. Found no bed bugs after thorough inspection and charge was extremely reasonable, which I was glad to pay for my piece of mind. Would highly recommend.

Our problem was a bed bug issue. I cannot explain how I felt when I realized what I thought was a tick, was actually a bed bug. My first thought was my home is so "clean" , how did this happen? I later learned that this little visitor does not care about that and they can be carried into your home by others. I cannot explain how relieved I was to hear Dennis say "he loves problem solving and he was here to help me and we will work together as a team to get this resolved". He answered all of my questions and took the time to really explain the whole process and and how we would bug bust these little invaders! This is such a personal issue to have this happen and if you ever have this problem, then you know the work involved to prep for this type of treatment and having the right person who enjoys what they do CAN make the difference! This company is local and responded to my request within hours. They were at my home the next morning and provided me with everything I needed to get started. The Customer Service is outstanding! You will not be disappointed. Thank you LeadTech!

Dennis was excellent, agree with all the reviews that his service is excellent, I haven't hired someone in a long time who is so professional. We had a bed bug issue and tried to control the problem ourselves (which after 3-4 weeks we were ineffective!). We worked as a team and so far we think the problem is solved...finally!!! Would definitely recommend Dennis. Thanks so much!

Dennis is a great, honest business man! I thought I had a bed bug problem and he came out to inspect. There was no sign of any bugs! I was very relieved to have found an honest exterminator to check for any issues I may have. He could have easily told me I had a problem and charged me but he didn't. He even gave me preventative tips! It was refreshing to know that there are honest people around that will not only look out for themselves but for the best interest of the customer also. I can say that I have now found my exterminator for any future issues I may have! Dennis, thank you again!

Over the past few months, I have been paranoid that we had bed bugs at our home. I would get random bites over night (once or twice a month) but could never find the source. Dennis reached out to me on Thumbtack and was very straight forward on pricing (super affordable), and offered a free inspection. He just came by the home today for the inspection and provided excellent customer service. He didn't find any traces of bed bugs and chalked it up to the possibility that I may have had an allergy to a stray carpet beetle or fleas from my dog. It isn't common these days that you have a company that doesn't try to force you to buy their services. In this case Dennis was up front and didnt recommend any form of treatment for the house. Although we didn't need any remediation in our home today, I will be sure to use this company if we were ever to have an issue with pests.

I was uncertain during the buying process when shopping around for a bed bug exterminator. I had never dealt with bed bugs before and didn't know much about them. Dennis made everything easy. He provided all of the information on what I needed to do pre- and post-treatment, and was very helpful and responsive in answering all of my questions. I had to reschedule 3 times and he did not seem annoyed in the slightest. Brian showed up on the day of the first treatment. They have you schedule a 2 hour window for the exterminator to show up (For me, it was 9-11). Naturally, I expected them to show up at 11 or later than scheduled (like most maintenance companies I've dealt with). Brian was very punctual and open about arriving just a few minutes past 9. He was friendly and professional, and we spent ten minutes just talking about football. He explained everything he was doing for the treatment and explained where he needed to spray and why. Also, they allowed me to split payments between the first and second treatment, which was very helpful. This was a great experience and I will highly recommend their services to friends and family.

I returned from a camping trip and was fearful I had brought bed bugs into my home. Dennis responded in less than 12 hours after my request for help was submitted. He was friendly, knowledgeable, efficient, and helped me understand the steps he was taking to ensure I would have the desired peace of mind. He communicated thoroughly, answered all of my questions, and willingly treated my roommate's bedroom too. He is trustworthy, flexible (came to my home on a Sunday), and will definitely be hired again.

Dennis(ower of Lead Tech) was GREAT!!!! He answered all my 500 questions and calls right away. I was really upset and anxious about finding bed bugs and getting them taken care of because I've never dealt with them before and I've heard all kinds of stories but he calmed my fears and assured me they would do everything they can to take care of it and help me out! I know companies say that all the time but Dennis backed it up with every action he and his company took. They were definitely the nicest and most helpful, productive company I have ever worked with. I would highly recommend using them and will be using them myself in the future if ,heaven forbid, I ever have any other pest problems or concerns. THANK YOU DENNIS AND LEAD TECH!!!
