Sky High was great. They came out promptly when I thought we had bed bugs after a recent trip out of town. Miguel told us what we actually had was carpet beetles. He could have easily told us that we had bed bugs (another company did and we are glad we got a second opinion) and we would have been throwing money at him to get rid of them. Instead, he told us what we really had even though these types of bugs are benign and cost considerably less to exterminate. We had a bed bug consultatoin and quote from a "big box" national bug company and it was upwards of $1600. We are so happy we called Sky High. Miguel's bed bug quote was considerably less and then we found out more good news...no bed bugs. We paid a fraction of the cost to just have a general house bug extermination and we are more than happy. We definitely recommend Sky High and they will be our go to exterminator from now on!

We have a home in our rental community that had been sitting vacant for about 4 months. When we went in to clean and remodel we found evidence of bedbugs. After calling, Mr. Carroll came out the same day and did a thorough inspection. We then discussed the best approach to tackling the problem. He came out once a week for 3 weeks treating the home and reporting on the outcome each time. He was very professional and knowledgeable in the treatment of bed bugs. I would definitely use his services again if need be.

A few months back I had to deal with the living nightmare of getting a bedbug infestation. I was so embarrassed. I shopped around to see what was the best and most affordable deal when I came across a small business called Ampulex. They were beyond courteous and informative and came out to my house for an inspection in no time. The man who did the treatment was named Eric and he was very professional but also very down to earth. He even reassured me that anybody could get bed bugs and the stigma of being "a dirty place" had little to do with it. All in all I had a five star experience and this company comes highly recommended. Thank you Ampulex

    Two years ago, I had an outbreak of spider mites on my 15 arbovitae trees, and I tried to treat it myself with miticide purchased from hardware stores. Because I was not successful in killing them off, my trees began to turn a copper-yellow and looked horrible. I was afraid of losing the trees (which are 7 years old and about 12-15 feet tall). This spring, I found Ziehler on the internet and hired them to take care of the spider mites. Their arborist was professional, friendly, and very helpful in explaining what the treatments were and how they would help. The cost is extremely reasonable, and after two treatments my trees began to recover. They are green again and look great! I was so impressed with their Tree service that I decided to hire their lawncare service as well. I highly recommend them!!!

    As I worked through how to deal with my bed bug problem, I probably called Glen six times with question - he was always pleasant, patient, and helpful.They came the next day - all were professional and got to work right away. They made my situation which I thought was horrible, into a tolerable and satisfying experience

      I would definitely use Eco-Therm again if I needed this type of service again. Brian is honest, caring, dependable, and did exactly what he told me he was going to do and actually he did more. He is very knowledgeable about his service, explains the whole process completely, and patiently answers all questions. He was careful with my household items and worked around my schedule. He is professional and very aware of the fact that a person might not want the whole neighborhood knowing your household is being treated for bedbugs. I would recommend him wholeheartedly.

        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.

        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 do you get bed bugs?

        Bed bugs can happen to anybody and there typically more than 200,000 cases in the U.S. per year. They are sneaky little pests that hitchhike into your home in a variety of ways. Getting a bed bug infestation is not a reflection on how clean a home is; bed bugs can infiltrate the cleanest of places — although their presence is easier to detect and eliminate in clutter-free spaces. Here are some tips from the EPA to prevent bed bugs from entering and taking up residence in your home:

        • Carefully inspect secondhand furniture, beds, or couches for any signs of bed bug infestation before bringing them home.
        • Use a protective cover (encasement) over mattresses and box springs to prevent bed bugs from hiding in them. Select an encasement in a light color to make bed bug spotting easier. Also choose one of a strong material that won’t tear, and check it often for holes.
        • Keep your home clutter-free to eliminate bed bug hiding spots.
        • Vacuum your home regularly and dispose of sealed vacuum bags carefully.
        • Shared laundry facilities can lead to bed bug exposure in both directions. Transport laundry in plastic bags (if you have an active infestation, use a new bag for the journey home). Remove laundry from the dryer directly into the bag and fold it at home. Use high heat to kill any potential bed bugs.
        • The EPA suggests that if you live in a multi-family home, isolate your unit by:
          • Installing door sweeps on the bottom of doors to discourage movement into hallways.
          • Sealing cracks and crevices around baseboards, light sockets, etc., to discourage movement through wall voids.

        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.
