Jeff was a Godsend. He is the 'Real McCoy'. He was amiable, kind and super capable. He was knowledgeable about the problem (bed bugs) and willing to help in any way he could. Great guy this one! We called at 12:19 pm and he was there the same day by 3:20 pm. The inspection was free, and he couldn't be sure that they made it inside, but we decided to hire him as a precaution. He returned around 6:30 pm to exterminate the whole unit! Jeff offered us a fantastic price and he also agreed to come back in a couple weeks to spray again for extra insurance. I own a property or two and I will be calling him for every house that I encounter a problem. I feel happy and much more at ease. Major thumbs up to Jeffrey Mueller of WNY Pest Control! Ms. Jordan

Bed Bugs...What an absolute nightmare! I recently moved into a friend's home without him divulging to me that he had a serious infestation of bed bugs approximately 1 month prior to me moving in. His girlfriend spent over $400 on products found in stores like Lowe's and Home Depot and innumerable hours attempting to get rid of these tiny little nuisances. Her efforts did not fully eradicate them, as it never does; you need a qualified expert! Terrified, when I discovered them in my bedroom, I immediately sought professional help on Thumbtack and received several quotes re: my situation. After asking a few questions to the companies that responded the quickest AND in conjunction with their outstanding reviews I decided to hire Anytime Pest Control. In addition, as per NYS law, pest control companies are to be DEC registered, licensed, and insured. Rich's company Anytime Pest Control follows this protocol. Rich is professional, knowledgeable & confident in his area of expertise, and truly was available ANYTIME. He explained, in detail, how and when bed bugs seek humans. Throughout the 3 days we were in contact (via Thumbtack, text messaging, and phone calls) he was extremely accommodating and put all my fears to rest. I felt comfortable in his hands, am feeling relieved now, and would definitely recommend his company to anyone with bed bugs! Rich, I am beyond appreciative for everything that you did to accommodate me and my family. You were there to help me and reassure me that everything was going to be alright. Anytime Pest Control is a shining example of how a company and their customer service should operate!

They show up, bugs go away. I have a couple of rentals and they have taken care of many issues for me. Ants, carpenter bees, ground bees, wasps, and mice so far. I look forward to having them take care of my next issue as well.

We thought we had bed bugs at our house in the fall of 2016, and we called Bill and he dropped everything to come right over and thoroughly inspect our house. This kind of customer service is tough to find in the world today and we will always highly recommend his services.

Josh showed up right on time. Job was completed within 45 minutes. Sprayed extra area around pool deck. Explained not to power wash house for a few weeks so chemical is not washed away. Advised a second treatment may be needed if box elder bugs return in fall.

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.
