My home was decluttered and treated for bed bugs. They treated me with compassion, discretion,and professionalism. My home was arranged and prepared for occupancy and I could have had company immediately. They even decorated for Christmas. I could not be more pleased. They were truly an answer to prayer. We have our home back.

This is our first experience with bed bugs. Our technician called ahead of time, was able to come early. He answered my millions of questions throughly and patiently. He told me what to expect and how to take extra precautions. I’m cautiously optimistic and was very reassured but their plan of action and guarantee. Wendy, who set up our service, was so kind and helpful. Now, only time will tell but I definitely feel like Sky High was worth taking a chance on!

We have a home in our rental community that had been sitting vacant for about 4 months. When we went in to clean and remodel we found evidence of bedbugs. After calling, Mr. Carroll came out the same day and did a thorough inspection. We then discussed the best approach to tackling the problem. He came out once a week for 3 weeks treating the home and reporting on the outcome each time. He was very professional and knowledgeable in the treatment of bed bugs. I would definitely use his services again if need be.

I found a bed bug on my daughters bed after throwing away my bed and my couch. I did not want to throw her bed set away because it wasn't even a year old. I've never had bed bugs before and didn't know what to do. I called Eric and he was very knowledgeable and he came out the NEXT day. I received the cheapest quote from him as well. When he arrived he was very informative and professional. He eased my mind tremendously. He did a great job exterminating. I would definitely recommend this company.

    Two years ago, I had an outbreak of spider mites on my 15 arbovitae trees, and I tried to treat it myself with miticide purchased from hardware stores. Because I was not successful in killing them off, my trees began to turn a copper-yellow and looked horrible. I was afraid of losing the trees (which are 7 years old and about 12-15 feet tall). This spring, I found Ziehler on the internet and hired them to take care of the spider mites. Their arborist was professional, friendly, and very helpful in explaining what the treatments were and how they would help. The cost is extremely reasonable, and after two treatments my trees began to recover. They are green again and look great! I was so impressed with their Tree service that I decided to hire their lawncare service as well. I highly recommend them!!!

      I would definitely use Eco-Therm again if I needed this type of service again. Brian is honest, caring, dependable, and did exactly what he told me he was going to do and actually he did more. He is very knowledgeable about his service, explains the whole process completely, and patiently answers all questions. He was careful with my household items and worked around my schedule. He is professional and very aware of the fact that a person might not want the whole neighborhood knowing your household is being treated for bedbugs. I would recommend him wholeheartedly.

      As I worked through how to deal with my bed bug problem, I probably called Glen six times with question - he was always pleasant, patient, and helpful.They came the next day - all were professional and got to work right away. They made my situation which I thought was horrible, into a tolerable and satisfying experience

      We recently had our entire house ,'de-bed-bugged' as the result of many months of not having the money for professional treatment. We used over-the-counter stuff but it barely helped, so, things gradually got worse and worse. Once we were in a better position to get professional help, I found someone on Thumbtack. Although he, too, could have solved the problem, he told us about Shawn and Lisa's heat treatment just to give us another option. (Apparently, they refer clients back and forth sometimes depending on the job; so, I actually did not hire them directly from Thumbtack because they did not know about it yet.) Anyway, we decided on the heat treatment so we called them. During the several hours it took to do the task, I got to know this VERY nice couple (and their sweet daughter) and asked alot of questions about the different kinds of treatments available. While I admit that I am not an expert, I believed them when they said that not all heat treatments are as effective as others--it's all about how much power the heaters have because the heat has to get high enough to go behind walls and into lots of tight spaces (like pages in books). They explained that some heaters just can't do the job--BUT THEIRS DID!! However, good equipment is just part of it...this family put in a LOT of physical labor moving things around periodically. Our bedbugs DID NOT STAND A CHANCE!! I would also like to say that, although I'm sure Shawn and Lisa need to put food on the table like everyone else, they said they keep their price down so more people can get relief from these ANNOYING bugs. And that seems to be where they get the most satisfaction--from helping people. So, I HIGHLY recommend them!!! My husband and I feel like we finally have freedom to live normally in our own home again.-- FROM TWO VERY SATISFIED CUSTOMERS

        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.
