Whomever said the most stressful things in life were moving and getting a new job, never had bed bugs. There is nothing worse than having your home raided by these little buggers. Luckily we have Adam and his team. Unfortunately for the bed bugs Adams knowledge of his craft makes him a mean and very effective bed bug killer. He is patient and thorough and will eradicate your house entirely in 1 or 2 treatments. His customer service is impeccable and his response time was amazing. We called him on a Sunday and he came out the same day. Please give Penny a call she will set you up with an appointment today! Many thanks to Adam Johnson Pest Control!

We found some bed bugs in our home and needed some help. I had tried everything that was available to get rid of them, but nothing worked. I found Pest Proof on here and within days, Erik came out, diagnosed the problem, and we set up a treatment plan. He is very knowledgeable and was able to answer all of our questions. A few days later, a tech came to our home and completed the treatment. All of this happened within a week and was very affordable. We are very happy and highly recommend this company.

I had killer wasps and needed immediate past control and Gino was very responsive and was able to come out within four hours of my request. He was very knowledgeable, professional, and promptness. He guarantees his work for 90 days and his prices are amazing. I recommend using him and will call him again for any pest control needs that I might have.

Joe took care of my bed bug issue fast and effectively. On top of it, he provided so much value by educating me about preventative measures for other potential bug and rodent issues in my 10 unit apartment complex. I definitely recommend using him. He's punctual, honest, affordable, effective, and just a great friend to have on your team whether you have issues in your single family home or larger multi-family property.

I used Loudoun Lawn and Pest for a bed bug problem. Jesper was very informative, friendly and professional. He explained to us exactly what the process was and what he would be doing. I would call again for any pest issues.

He came for a free inspection of my car. He gave it a good once over and determined that I didn't have bed bugs and wouldn't need his service. He was on time, professional and answered all my questions. I'm glad I didn't need his services but I would have hired him if need be.

I had to stay in one of the hotels in South California for my business trip. When I got back home I noticed some bug bites on me. I started to worry that I brought bed bugs home after noticing the bites. I called AtOnce Pest and spoke with Marc who immediately made me feel better. He took his time to explain how bed bugs travel, how long it takes for infestation to develop, and how it can be treated. He explained that heat treatment is the most effective treatment available today. I preferred it over using chemical treatments. He came in the next day and thoroughly inspected the bedroom. He lifted a king size mattress and box spring for his inspection with a special light. He also inspected the baseboards and carpet for any signs of bed bugs. While heat treatment is generally effective, not all professionals know how to do it properly. To protect your home and get rid of the problem, call AtOnce for help.

We had to call Regional after another company couldn't get rid of my bud bugs! We ended up spending so much money with the first company after they came out on three different instances and the bugs still weren't gone! Regional came out as scheduled, had their bed bug dog run through our home to pinpoint problem areas that weren't treated before, and then used their heat chamber. After one treatment we were finally bed bug free! The dog even came back a week after the treatment to confirm we were free of the bugs for good! Regional was prompt, extremely knowledgeable, and very professional. I wish we had gone with them to begin with and highly recommend them!

    Richard was wonderful !!! I was very worried I had bed bugs and he came out the very next day for a free inspection. He was friendly and obviously new what he was doing. He educated me about the proses, what to look for and how to Provent them as he did a thorough surch. He was very patient with all my questions and my 2 year old who really wanted to help him. I never felt he was in a rush. The surch came up clean but he still sent me an email full of information to provent bed bugs. I just couldn't be more pleased. If we ever do get bed bugs he is defiantly my go to man. Thank you so much Richard I will defiantly get a good night sleep now :0)

    Kevin was the best, in every way. I talked to many others, including a big pest control company, but he was 10 times better all around. He always got back to me fast with a text or call. He gave me advice on using home techniques - like a "heater box" which we got from Walmart, not expensive, to heat items including pretty big items in it to kill bugs and eggs. He did an amazingly thorough job of inspecting the day he came for an assessment - looking carefully at every single bed. On the day, he was on time and steam-cleaned the key areas and put down two kinds of eco friendly spray treatment, and we have a 90 day guarantee and he can come reinspect during that time, to update us on the process. He is even going to have a bed-bug smelling dog - amazing! It was a huge relief to get this problem solved. Highly recommended. You will realize once you meet him that he's trustworthy and the best.

    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.
