Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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 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 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.

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.

Timothy at Bug Bounty Hunters was very professional and thorough. He gave us a very reasonable quote, arrived on time, and treated my entire house in a few hours. He gave us advice on what we can do to keep bed bugs from returning and is coming back in a week and a half to apply a second treatment. He also offered us a 3 month warranty just in case. I would recommend this company if you are looking for a local exterminator.

I had bed bugs in my sofa, and didn't want to throw it out because it was brand new. I was able to get a next day appointment. They came out to treat my home, including my beds, furniture, and SUV. The price was very reasonable, and the service was great. Dave assured me my couch was treatable and there was no need to throw it away. I recommend the service to anyone who has this sort of issue. Having them come and treat the house was far cheaper than the cost of buying a new sofa, and running the risk that they traveled else where in your home.

My 16 year old son brought bed bugs in our home. Thank God we weren't infested. I ended up calling John at 4a.m. one morning. He called right back the same day. I was terrified of this situation. Never did I think this would ever happen to me and my family. He ended up coming out the very same day. He made my mind feel a little more at ease. It only took one spray to kill the bugs and their eggs. He did come out 2 weeks later for a second spray. Everything seems to be gone. I think this whole thing has traumatized me a little. Its something that can take over your mind. I know there are no more bugs but I still look through my couch and bed before I sit or sleep on them. Its a mind thing. Overall I would definitely call him again if I needed anything . He is very knowledgeable and definitely worth the phone call . I have his number saved in my personal cell just in case a problem arises again. Thanks John!

We got a few quotes to exterminate bed bugs. Als was on the cheaper side. Price did play a factor in our decision, but most importantly we wanted the problem to be dealt with so we didn't have to worry about it anymore. Al meet both of those, the price I paid was the exact price quoted, and now two weeks after his service we're not seeing any problems, he left us with a 6 month guarantee as well. Al answered all the questions I had, let me know what I needed to do to ensure great results. He was quick and professional. On top of that, while he was treating for the bed bugs he saw some ants in my kitchen, which have been a constant problem, and he treated for those as well. No sighting of any ants since. If I need this type of service again Al will be the person I reach out to. I would highly recommend him to anyone needed these services

Dave came out to my house due a bed bug problem I had and thoroughly inspected my problem areas and found nothing wrong. He gave us plenty of insight as to what may have caused the problem and what we should do (or keep doing) to prevent them from coming back. He was very helpful and extremely nice and generous with his insight, he didn't charge us a dime!! I will definitely recommend him to any of my friends and family that have pest problems!
