When I posted my needs, I was initially messaged by four different exterminators right away. Brent stood out by sending me a follow-up message one week later with a free quote and curiosity about my infestation. I called him, and he quickly gave me a free quote tailored to my situation. He was able to answer my multitude of questions and put my infestation fears and anxiety to rest. He was easy to reach by phone throughout the process. He provided detailed instructions for me to follow before and after treatment to ensure that it was fully effective. And the 90 day guarantee ensured that if the included first and follow-up treatment didn't work for ANY reason, he would make additional visits until the bed bugs were gone. This guy moved quickly, knows what he is doing, does not cut corners, and is confident in the quality of his work - as he should be. It has been 26 days since I first spoke with Brent on the phone, and I have not seen or been bitten by a bed bug in weeks. Looks like I'm in the clear. Thanks Brent!

Tayo was very thorough and took care of our bed bugs and fleas on his first visit. The only reason I did not give five stars is because his assessment for when we could go back to our house was wildly different from what he originally told us, which caused a lot of problems when having to find out where to stay and where to board our dog. I also wished he had been more upfront with his instructions for aftercare, but he did offer to answer any text messages or phone calls on the subject and he kept his word on that. He also comes with a 6 month guarantee which is terrific and very appreciated. Overall, we were very grateful for his assistance and no pests are here anymore; just a little bit more of clear communication was needed.

After really poor experiences with large national companies (Orkin and Terminix), working with the Amenta company was great. They came to do the job the next day, and the problem is solved. Will use again!

During a visit from an exterminator for another issue in my residential neighborhood, i was informed that I had termites. Orkin was 1 of the 3 suggested professional companies from Thumbtack and I decided to contact 2. 1 company provided a quote over the phone for service but Stephen, from Orkin, scheduled an appointment to review my home. After review, Stephen advised that my issue was flying ants and not termites. So grateful for honest professionals.

Steve got back to my query promptly and was able to come by and give an estimate on the same morning we spoke. He was professional and thorough, and explained everything about his process and methods in detail. Though bed bugs did not turn out to be present (thank god!), he left me with helpful information about next steps I could take to ensure that those pests would never be a problem in the future. I kept his card in case I ever suspect pests in the future, as I would absolutely use Reliant's services again.

Being the owner of a daycare center this was one of my biggest fears! When one of the parents informed me that they had bed bugs I immediately went into panic mode and called a service who cheated us out of a lot of money!! One night my husband heard the commercial for East Coast Heat Guys and said let’s give them a try. I called them at 1 am and they immediately called me back that next morning and they were patient, caring and understanding. They listened and cared. Helped me understand what actually really need to be done. They came out to our daycare and got to work! We were not only bed bug free when they left but it has been 6 weeks and still Bed Bug free,we were thoroughly impressed. They were highly professional, organized, caring and compassionate. They also took the time to go over preventative measures so that I wouldn’t hopefully have any more worries. And with everything that they did it was still less that what the other company cheated us out of! I would recommend this company highly!! Thank You, Thank You

I highly recommend Cory Quigley for pest control services. I have been using Cory's services for several years. He is very efficient and a pleasure to deal with. He goes above and beyond to identify the pest and eradicate all insects and pests from your home. Mr. Quigley is very professional, reliable, and punctual. He also is very precise and does not mind doing same day service if it is possible. I have never been disappointed with his services.

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.
