Such a great company. Answered all of my questions and were wonderful at explaining everything. They were on time and so professional. I'd recommend them to everyone who has a bug bed infestation. We had a bad experience with another company before but these guys were GREAT!

Troy is the absolute best! I was so glad that I found him! He was exactly what I was looking for when I needed assistance to inspect/treat for bed bugs. I had been emotionally distraught thinking there were bugs in my house. Troy educated me and put me at ease. He is not your typical bug treatment professional. His modern knowledge about his trade really impressed me and this makes him a cut above the rest. I've worked with other companies and they are mostly old fashioned and not up to date with their methods. Other companies quoted me thousands of dollars higher than Troy's treatment. Other companies were quoting me for services I didn't need but I didn't know that until I spoke to Troy. I can't recommend his service's enough. If you are considering having someone come to your home to inspect/treat for bugs, seriously, call Troy and tell him about your situation. He really cares about people and it shows with his work. I will DEFINITELY be keeping his number. Look at his website and give him a call! After you speak to him for a minute or two, I'm sure you will feel at ease and ready to hire him! Thanks so much Troy!

Art and his team were great. They provided a solid level of information about the Bed Bugs and what we were dealing with. They also were able to schedule quickly and were right on time with all the appointments made. We had our heat treatment done yesterday, so we're hoping the little devils are gone for good. They did great work.

My husband saw a few bites on him over the course of a couple of weeks, having experienced a problem with bedbugs before we panicked. We tried almost every home remedy to no avail so decided to hire a professional. We were so discouraged due to the pricing of a lot of the companies but then we found The Bug Man on Thumbtack. Traey actually took the time to walk me through his whole process and explain to me in detail how to inspect my apartment. I expected less effort since his price was so low but was pleasantly surprised that he took his time and did a through inspection and treatment of my place. At the end of the day he didn't find any evidence of bedbugs and even left a can of his product in the event they are in one of our vehicles. I will say that I was a little discouraged about him not finding them but he did a pretty detailed inspection. I have been bit once since he has been at our place but he did say that it was a possibility to see bites until they die off. I have already recommended him to a friend and left his card with my rental office. It really does appear that he cares about people and truly wants to help.

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

My wife and I contacted Crabtree Pest Management after we were invaded by an army of stink bugs. These things were everywhere!!! The owner Brett came out to our house to perform the work. He was very patient and listened to our concerns. We walked the inside and outside of our house to assess the situation and talk about "hot spots" Brett explained in detail what he would be doing and even used products that were safe for our dogs! His work was detailed and produced fantastic results! Not only did the stink bugs go away but we also saw a reduction in spiders and other insects!! Service was very affordable, but not cheap on quality. We have recommended Crabtree Pest to other friends and they have all had positive experiences!

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

I hired this company for their bed bug Canine inspection service. The Canine handlers were on-time, professional and very informative. They had no problem, identifying the infected areas in a multi family duplex.

If you arent sure if you have bed bugs or not this is the way to go. People arent going to search every nook and cranny like a bed bug detection dog can. He will find the needle in the haystack. Very friendly and experienced they can help you determine if you have bugs or not.

Central Ohio K-9 Bed Bug is a scent detection unit located in Columbus, Ohio. We use K-9 to detect the scent of bed bug presence. A study at the Florida University showed that human inspection at its best was only 30% accurate. The same study showed K-9 to be over 95% accurate. We utilize the same canines that law enforcement and military across the globe do. Do not wait until it's too late. Get the accurate inspection needed to eliminate these nuisance pests.

What a wonderful company! I can not say enough good things, too many to mention.. This was a Very upsetting situation and they assured us that everything would be taken care of, and it was. We believe that they went over and beyond what most companies would have done! They took extra time with the heating process and as they were working touched base on how things were going. They are down to earth and listen to your concerns. I explained to them that we had a son that we didn't want him to know what was going on. ( other children can be mean) They accommodated us wonderfully. They were on time and the job was done to our COMPLETE satisfaction! Ty very much for your understanding and taking care of details of the pretreatment I over looked. We had searched many companies before we chose Vanish Bed Bug Removal, and by FAR I believe we made the right choice for price, satisfaction, and most important to our family, was it was a husband and wife team with a family of their own and they treated our home as if it were theirs and their family. Many thanks, Steph

We had a rather difficult problem with bed bugs and first called another pest control company for remedy. After multiple attempts with no success we called Torco for help. They responded promptly and professionally. They were very careful and curtious during the process and totally took care of our problem. Was so pleased with their work.

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.
