Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.

This company is truly amazing! When a subletter brought in bed bugs to my apt, I was devastated because I had bed bugs 7 yrs ago and had to throw mosy of my stuff out and move to a new apt from the laundromat. I was dreading the same experience because I love my current apt and

Affordable service with a smile !! Gene and Steve provided us with a green and eco friendly treatment against bed bugs as promised, organized our bed bug laundry and cleaners, provided a hand for prep services and kept in touch and followed up (several times knowing I was just nervous and on a dimes notice). It may be my amazing coffee but I appreciate that a busy business owner takes the time to personally follow up and on more than the agreed upon occasion to make sure the project is on par. We no longer have bed bugs but gained a friend. You boys know your insects and your attitude is A+ - good luck with ODIN! Sandy

I have been through bed bugs before with other companies and I was extremely impressed with Odin's customer service and expertise. They know the ins and outs and have all the tools available to resolve the problem. The best and most important aspect for me was their ability to address the mental stress and guide me through the psychological issues that accompany bed bugs. I feel confident in this company and would recommend them to everyone.

After hiring these exceptional exterminators we are bug free and highly recommend Hernandez Pest Control!!

Excellent service! He was very knowledgeable about bed bugs, did my entire (small) apartment and showed me exactly what the insects look like so I know what to look out for in the future (God forbid I get another episode). He answer all of my questions and explained each step he took to eliminate the insects.

HIGHLY KNOWLEGEABLE AND AFFORDABLE !! Remarkable Experience !!! We had an emergency with bed bugs. The team was fast to react, guided us through the preparation steps, answered every question in full detail, and the treatment went off without a glitch. They are very discreet and use some high tech gear - honestly I wasn't expecting the amount of detail and patience that our exterminators put forth into making sure our issue was resolved. The treatment lasted several hours and in that time every inch of our apartment was thoroughly treated and disinfected. They used several methods from heat and cryonite freezing and injecting into the walls and outlets. We are due for a second visit and I have no doubt in my mind it will be of a preventative measure as there is no way our apartment can still have bed bugs with the way Gene and his team canvases the apartment. Thank you so much for being there for our family. Happy we made the right choice here.

BED BUG FREE - Just Remarkable! Our family had been through it with 2 companies attempting to get rid of bed bugs at our home. I contacted ODIN and felt relieved from the first conversation. The owner and Leslie took the time to hear us out and did not miss a single detail. They were knowlgeable and patient taking the care to get to know our issue. When they arrived to treat our home it was clear they were different; they use specialized equipment, performed a thorough inspection, really focused on asking specific questions as they laid out a strategy and plan of action. Our home was thoroughly disinfected and treated. I watched 2 companies prior to this and they did not do 1/4th of the work that the team from ODIN had. I am happy to finally sleep in my own home. Thank you guys! You are amazing in your thoroughness and care!

Odin Pest Control has been absolutely wonderful. This was our first experience with bed bugs, and they were able to come the day after we called. We had the privilege working with both Gene and Josh, both were excellent exterminators. They have phenomenal communication whether it was with Gene and Josh. Any questions we had they were answered. We would highly recommend them to anyone.

Bed Bugs No More! Gene and Leslie were exceptional! Their culture can be seen in every facet of their interaction with or family. The team and treatment was well coordinated, appointments and communications were timely, price wise it was far more affordable than expected, and most importantly Gene is highly knowledgeable about pest control and bed bugs and overall behavior of pests as they relate to our home. The entire team had professionally executed the pre and post treatment objectives without a glitch or so far as a hick-up. Being in management myself I know a thing or two about service. These guys have their A game on and their devotion and superior methods are seen in every step of the treatment and interaction. Our family was a wreck and after calling several companies we finally felt comfortable and in good hands whith the team at Odin Pest. Gene took the time and patiently walked us through step by step, question by question as to what needed to be done, how to prepare, and discussed options for treatment given our circumstances. Gene and his associate were over at our place at agreed upon time, their gear set up, and the apartment was being disinfected in no time. They came through on their promised follow-up visits and remained in constant contact with us throughout 6-8 months since the final visit. I am happy and honored to write this review for a team that went above and beyond to rid our home of bed bugs. Thank you!

We hired ODIN to handle our bed bug infestation. Our concern was our pets and 2 toddlers. The guys at ODIN walked me through in detail about how the treatment worked and customized several approaches to account for our kids’ room and pets. Their coordinator Leslie took time to walk me through the prep guide and answer every one of my questions. She cares. I like that. The entire team went above and beyond to make sure we had the right information, preparation steps, and post treatment instructions. Their approach is very thorough and they left no inch un turned. We felt comfortable with this company and made a solid friend in the end. They are an asset to have in your corner when dealing with one of the most difficult pest to eliminate. The entire treatment took about 3 hours from top to bottom. They are highly eager to help and genuinely have success in mind. Would not hesitate to hire them again or recommend to anyone seeking a personal touch and exemplary services when dealing with a bed bug infestation.

I am so far very happy with J & Son, my parents (91 & 94) live in a very nice apt (Trump Village) Brooklyn New York. They experienced a bed bug problem, and since they are entitled to bug control thru their lease, we thought that would solve the problem. Much to my dismay, not only did the Exterminator intimidate my parents, but the bug infestation only got worse. I called the maintenance dept to let them know what was going on, they could not have cared less. At this time my brother & I decided we had to do something, both mom & dad were being bitten. I contacted J & Son Exterminating thru Thumbtack. He (Jaime/owner) called me immediately.He came 2 days later (could have come sooner, but my parents had appts.) 16 Oct 15 & again on 23 Oct 15, my parents have seen a 98% improvement, and are hoping for a 100% after this next friday. If the 3rd time is not the charm, I would not have a difficult time hiring Jaime in the future. I would highly recommend J & Son for any of your "pest" problems.

The entire team at ODIN Pest came really came through for us when we learned that we had bed bugs. We needed an effective and safe solution without breaking the bank. We did our research and the amount of information online was driving us insane. From insane price quotes ranging upwards into the thousands to treatment methods that relied on freezing our apartment. I'm not sure what was worse; the bed bug bites or sifting through the web. We contracted Odin Pest. The owner is very knowlgeable and had taken the time to make sense of all those treatment methods that my wife and I had read about. Gene went through the pros and cons of each method with us and we felt confident and reassured that we were in good hands. During the treatment the team was extremely discreet, professional, and took care of the home as if it were their own. It was genuinely a pleasure to have them in our home. Very good crew. very careful, very conscious of the fact that they are working in a home. It's been several months and we almost forgot the treatment even took place. As promised by Odin Pest, the follow up visits and monitoring all happened very timely and everything went off without a hitch. extremely happy.

I own a 4 family brownstone and my second floor got bed bugs. My first pro robbed me and did not take care of the problem. I called J&Sons in desperation. He showed up in 1 day, was diligent and super professional. Took care of the contents of y3he building and treated each floor for a reasonable price. He shared advice with me and scheduled to return for part 2 of the treatment. He was extremely through making sure to get all the areas they could be. He was honest and I intend to use him in the future for regular maintenance. You won't be disappointed with his ssevice!

I *had( bed bugs. Gene and Leslie are awesome! They were highly accommodating to my schedule, friendly, and fit me the very next day. Leslie always responded to my emails immediately with answers to questions I had about the process. In my adult life, this is the first time I've worked with exterminators. Gene, the exterminator, arrived on time and is a genuinely friendly person. I was nervous about the inspection and spraying, thinking it would be worse than it was, and the whole time Gene kept a nice calm demeanor. Odin Pest obviously has experience in their craft and highly values customer service, too. That speaks volumes for me. I highly recommend.

Amazing Response and Affordable! The owner Gene and his staff Leslie and Jay took excellent care of our family and eradicated our bed bug infestation with solid professionalism. As the reviews said before they care about their clients and we felt comfortable and finally like we had our lives back. Their response time was fast, warranty and follow up treatments as promised, available and on call for any question the wife or I had both before and well after the treatment. The House smelled and felt fresh after the treatment. They steamed, disinfected, treated, and followed through just as promised. We have not seen a living insect for months. Highly recommend giving no this team a call if you find yourself in our predicament. LB from NYC

Great value, price, and service. They responded promptly and even let me text (which was very convenient). Their business sent a professional to come in the same day I requested for help on a bed bug scare. Most of all, I appreciated Cesar’s current knowledge and his patience to explain everything he did. I chose this place for two main reasons. The first was the fact that they require their employees to receive educational training on the latest techniques/news. This was a determining factor for me. The second reason was the price. Compared to quotes from other businesses, theirs was very reasonable. I was about to choose another business, but the fact that C and E offered a secondary complimentary check up visit pretty much sealed the deal. I didn’t even need the second visit, but it definitely gave me piece of mind at the time.
