Chris was very responsive and respectful on my request for his services. He took plenty of time to talk to me prior to me officially hiring him, and listened to my concerns with care. He got me in as quickly as possible and did a very thorough job while explaining the process and where the bugs like to live. I highly recommend him!!

We are very satisfied...all wasps (and all cluster flies and many spider/bugs) are gone. It has now been a week. We had multiple wasp nests both visible and hidden behind vinyl siding on our two story large cape cod with walk out basement..air around the house was full of wasps on a warm day. Owner Jack claimed they would be "gone" in a day or two and would stay gone for about 60 days. Jack came within 2 days of our call, was on time and had necessary equipment (we emailed photo of house so he knew to bring the 24' ladder). He used his battary powered back-pack sprayer and sprayed around every window and all siding end points (inner and outer corners, etc). Process took about 1.5 hours. We can now sit unmolested on the patio. Results are great and well worth the price. Great job Family Pest Solutions!

First before I begin anything I would like to say that Jeff was my exterminator and even though he had another job to go to he actually took the time to call them and postpone it so he could spend a good hour talking to me about how everything works exactly what they do and pretty much gave me what I would refer to as a college course and bed bug history and not only how to get rid of them but how they come in the first place every single piece of equipment he use he explain to me what it was how it worked and everything from the health hazard of it so why it's better than using things you could buy at something like Home Depot or a what I will call brand name company which I will not mention because it is irrelevant compared to the job that he did not only was he kind enough to explain everything A nd go through every single piece of furniture even all the way to things laying around like boxes and electronics outside of the actual job he was extremely kind and I think we bonded on a note that me and the fact that we had a bed bug infestation seeing that it was no big deal as we were able to joke around and relate to things in life even while he was doing 200% of the extermination he took time to answer any questions for a bed bug infestations all the way to talking about things that we could relate to such as music which made me a lot more, knowing that there was bugs infested in my house one of the highest notes that I can praise on this company especially jeff is that he did this whole job while his wife was practically in labor he did not let that affect his performance in doing his job words more money Kim replace what he has done for my family as far as getting this situation effects he is a hell of a guy and so is his company and he knows every single possible thing there is to know about anything from bugs to wildlife there's not enough pats on the back that I could give him for how much you sold an A+ would be an insult compared to how much he's done if you're going to choose any company regardless if you're rich or not wealthy this is the company to go with in the end this questionnaire as for a complaint of what could be done better my only complaint would be that next time he has a kid he should stay at home as he has proven himself over and over again with his company as the customer comes first even over a newborn

    Starting from the sales experience to the technician coming out to get rid of our bed bugs, it amazed me how professional everything was and how efficiently they got the job done, I chose to go with their heating service bc I didn't want chemicals around my family. Over a month now and still no bed bugs!

    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.
