I was pretty sure I had a bed bug problem. I searched the internet and used Thumbtack to find a local exterminator. I was contacted by Eddie Jenkins jr. of Jenkins Pest Solutions. Eddie seemed real knowledgeable about my pest problem and set up an appointment to inspect my home. He came out, checked my home and informed me, to my dismay that I had a bed bug problem. Eddie assured me that I was not alone in the battle to get rid of these pest. We set up a two treatment extermination process. I had to wash and dry everything in my home, empty all closets and drawers, and clear a path for all baseboards. About one week later, Eddie came out and flipped and sprayed everything, cracks and crevices included. I had to leave my home for a few hours while he treated. Upon returning home I could tell that Eddie had done a thorough job as, everything was flipped, moved and sprayed. Eddie informed me where he found live bugs and told me that I may see live bugs as the spray does its job. However, after the initial treatment I never saw a live bug or got bitten. Eddie came back about 2-3 weeks later for the second treatment. He completed the same process, flipping and spraying everything. He also informed me that he didn't find any live ones at that time. It has been about a month since my nightmare started and I am happy to report that I remain bed bug free. Thank You Jenkins Pest Solutions! Thanks Eddie, your knowledge and professionalism helped ease the stress and anxiety I was feeling about these blood suckers. I would recommend you/your company to anyone seeking help for a pest problem.

We are currently waiting for our third treatment, but the chemicals seem to be helping. The exterminator was very helpful as well.

Been struggling with a flea problem for the past 6 months, did like most people probably called a big name company, they came out 3 times in 4 months never eliminated the problem, Contacted Larry and he came out and after 1 treatment the fleas were gone. Top quality work, I would recommend him to anyone who has a problem.

Unfortunately, I had bed bugs brought into my house. At that time, I googled bed bugs and found a local independently owned company based out of Grove City. Once I called them, they scheduled the appointment with me and was out very quickly to help take care of my issue. Prior to arriving to treat my house, they had sent me an email on how to prepare my house and belongings. This was extremely helpful and allowed the treatment to be more successful and smooth. At the time of the scheduled appointment, the exterminator (Jason), was extremely knowledgeable and courteous. Unfortunately, one bed bug was spotted 4 months later, and Dsicreet Bed Bugs and Pest Control, stood by their 6 month Guarantee and sprayed my house again without out charging me. Also, when they arrived, their trucks were unmarked from having their name on them due to being Discreet and keeping the matter private. Not only that, they were almost half the cost of the commercial companies out there, plus I would rather deal with a small private and professional company. I would highly recommend Discreet Bed Bug and Pest Control to anyone that may have the same issue I had due to my experience. Steve M. - Columbus, OH

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.

What do pest control companies do?

Pest control companies handle all aspects of bug, rodent and animal extermination or removal. Pest control professionals visit your home or office to identify the type of pest that is troubling you and offer various treatment plans — complete with clearly outlined costs. Once you and the pest control company have a signed agreement, the pro will begin treatment. Pest treatment can range from the use of spray pesticides and gel bait to live and/or kill traps. There are a wide range of types of pesticides, many of them nontoxic for humans and other small animals. This means you may be able to have your home treated for pests without harming nearby wildlife or your dog and cat. The pest control pro will carry out the treatment plan and, depending on the service agreement, provide follow-up such as emptying traps, inspecting access points, or reapplying pesticide spray if the pests return. Costs will vary based on the type of pest you are having removed and the extent of the infestation.The average national pest control price range is $80-$130. From a minor bedbug event to an entire home termite infestation, pest control companies have got you covered.

How do you get rid of termites?

The best way to get rid of termites is to act fast. Termites are a problem that will only get worse — and no matter how much you want them to, they usually don’t magically move out on their own. There are three main types of termites: drywood, dampwood and subterranean. Drywood and dampwood termites sneak through cracks in your exterior paint, nail holes, and gaps near windows and other openings and begin to eat through your wood. Subterranean termites enter your house from the ground up by creating mud tunnels. In all cases, they survive by eating the wood of your house. The type of termites you have can steer the treatment plan.

Methods of termite extermination include fumigation, use of pesticides, and use of natural elements that are poisonous to the bugs. The extent of your termite infestation will help determine the treatment method. If you have drywood or dampwood termites that have infiltrated all aspects of the wood in your home, the pest control pro may recommend enclosing the whole house in a tent and gassing the termites via fumigation. If you have subterranean termites, often the entire footprint of the home must be treated by drilling liquid treatments into the slab or foundation of the home to exterminate the colonies. In any case, once you see signs of termites, it’s time to take action and call a pest pro.  

How much does it cost to remove a mouse?

If you have a mouse in your house you’re probably quickly researching pest control costs. Mice, although tiny, can transmit diseases and also get into your food and leave unsanitary droppings around your home. If you have seen one mouse in your house, it’s likely that more have taken up residence in your crawl space, attic or basement.The national average pest control cost is $150-$200. Costs can vary depending on whether you need to get rid of a population of living mice or just dispose of a dead mouse (or full traps), how extensive the mouse population is, and where you live in the country. Here are some examples of average pest control cost for removing a mouse:

  • $150 for initial trap setup and inspection (and sealing of entry holes).
    • $50 for rodent removal service calls and emptying of traps. This visit can also include identifying and sealing entry points that were not sealed on the first visit.
  • Rodent extermination: $110-$350, depending on how heavy the rodent population is, whether the mouse infestation poses health risks, how many entrances exist and how many rodent bait stations are needed.

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.
