BED BUG FREE! Gene and his associate Leslie were superstars! We had a few "Big Shot" companies fail to remove these parasites from our lives. We decided to give this company a shot after reading their glowing reviews and speaking to the owner (Gene) and his support staff. Gene made us feel comfortable and that we were in good hands through his knowledge of bed bugs, their treatment methods, along with his concern and interest in addressing every detail of our treatment and post treatment care. Gene customized a treatment plan for us that started with a K-9 Bed Bug Dog inspection, a whole home heat remediation using specialized heating equipment to cook out the bed bugs, and use of Eco-friendly insect control products for residual effect, followed by 2 follow-up treatments, a solid warranty, and a final K9 Bed Bug Dog inspection to confirm that the bed bugs are gone for good. Gene's attention to detail and responsiveness to every possible scenario was remarkable. The communication was flawless (might I add discretion was exercised in every step of the way). This company is a boutique style firm that's owner operated. They don't delegate to technicians and perform and supervise the work by themselves. Their investment into their clients success and well being is seen in every step of the way and their use of some seriously high tech equipment reflects their commitment for the log haul. Watching them operate is a testament to craftsmanship and professionalism. They nailed it! Thank you boys - Your dedication and patience got us our life back ~ Michele, Tom, and Emily.

I didn't actually get to go through w the extermination, bc the inspector said he couldn't find anything BUT this team was AMAZING to work with. INCREDIBLY responsive, very kind, and very helpful. Bed bugs are a pain in the butt and super stressful, and Bugged Out really treated me like a human and made my concerns feel heard. I would highly recommend!

Great service ! He was right on time. Explained the process in details. Sent me a preparation email before he arrived and another email on what to do after the bed bugs have been treated. They did 4 treatments to create an overkill for the bedbugs. He was honest, and very professional. His price was also reasonable! It beat every other exterminator that I found on thumbtack and other websites. They will be my “go to” company from now on for pest control. I highly recommend.

It was the lowest quote I received and the service was good. The owner communicated well and kept me in the loop of what he was doing the whole step of the way. He also came back for a follow-up service a few weeks later and I have not seen signs of any bed-bugs since. Overall I am very satisfied with J and Sons exterminating!

My husband and I had a terrible experience with a different company and immediately called James to have our home rechecked for bed bugs. The courtesy and quick response from this company was amazing. They came to our home and did a detailed inspection and gave advice on how to maintain our home bug free. If you are looking for a responsible, knowledgeable company please don't even hesitate to call these guys!

Mike was recommended to me by Daniel at All American Pest Control who came to bat proof my house. I was told I would need another company to provide the guano clean up and treatment of the bat bugs (which was the original reason for the bat removal). The day of my bat exclusion service, Mike called me to schedule an appointment. I could tell from our phone call he was very knowledgeable and I was put at ease right away. He was also able to schedule our appointment at my convenience since I work in a school and timing would be difficult. Mike came to my house and did a thorough inspection. He then explained the clean up and treatment process. He was extremely patient with all my questions and took me thorough and took me through each step. I felt I was in very good hands. Mike was very professional and offers a warranty with his work. I would absolutely use him and again and recommend Pest by MD to others!

Wife went to NYC and brought bed bugs back with her in her suitcase. Figured it out after a week of being bitten. Called Tom in the afternoon on a Wednesday and he was at my door at 9:30 am the next day. Treated our room, closet and even wife's shoes and clothing. Happy to say problem solved. He is very knowledgeable and very fair in his pricing. He takes pride in his work and he gives you a personable touch like it used to be in the old days where someone actually cared about doing a good job and not just trying to make a quick buck. I HIGHLY recommend him.

Mr. Fernando Rivera is our Exterminator for about 3 to 4 years now. We have been having a few issues within those years relating to Moths, Bed Bugs and Mice issues. Our company receives numerous boxes international shipments and this is one of the reasons for our issues. Besides it maybe the building too. Our exterminator comes every bi-weekly and has been handling the situation and so far things have been under control. Thank you Fernando.

Firstly and most importantly - the bugs are gone! Gus walked me through every panicked moment of the whole ordeal including endless questions and stressed out venting on my part. I'm actually not sure how I would have made it through without him. Everything was done for a very fair price and the guys all seemed to be as invested as I was in ensuring those monsters were gone for good. Will sleep easy from now on !

    I needed to deal with an infestation if bed bugs. Michael was very good at explaining what needed to be done. On both days of treatment, he was early, efficient and always explained what he was doing. As I had the second treatment only yesterday, it is too early to tell if I wi need more. However, I already can see and feel a vast difference.

      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.
      Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
