Brent came out to take care of an issue that I had with bed bugs. When he showed up the first time around, we went over everything and he went into great detail about the bed bugs and how he would treat for them. Brent proceeded to treat the room with the issues, but treated all other areas in my house. After the first treatment, I can say that I didn't have any issues at all. He came back out again and retreated today. Each time that Brent came out, he showed up with a smile and was VERY personable. He's such an easy going person and I would recommend his extermination services to anyone. His prices were great, and the service was even greater. Thank you, Brent! May I never have to reach out to you again. lol

Overall the experience was informative, cleary explained plan nd info. Also was quick nd outstanding work day of service. with no hidden agenda no questions left no wondering if I chose right company. he called right away explained difference in pricing nd services in detail several times to make sure his client was up to speed about what and why he was performing certain services. He never promised anything he couldn't follow thru on. Also his services is to arrive in home three time to run extra services for one price. Three visit process he runs with a one year warranty. No other company offers this. No other company offers multiple visits nd inspections with a one year warranty in my area and called several major and mom n pop shops when no other company would. When u have bed bugs nd understand the growth patterns of bed bugs. 3 month warranty is rediculus nd most likely offered for state nd business requirements. Since all companies advice service performed may not complete ridding ur home of bed bugs. I've tried heat treatment had a major brand names company out for heat treatment nd did not work I ran heat treatment following there service two weeks after this company arrived I still had to call another company legionnaire to try another more productive way knowing heat treatment wasn't working for us. After several heat treatments using dryers nd sun I still found live bugs afterwards. After legionnaires arrived 2 weeks ago I have yet to physically see one. Looking forward to the next visit for inspection. Thank u legionnaires for doing what no other could. Bed bugs are tricky business nd I feel confident I now chose the right company for the job.

Our experience with the extermination services provided by Will White were extraordinary. We were devastated when we found bed bugs in our home and immediately went down the horrific experience of learning about these resilient creatures online. When we contacted Will he was reassuring and patient with us as he explained his processes, warranty, and knowledge about bed bugs. Will lightened the extreme stress that comes with managing bed bugs, not just in his services, but in his commitment to us as customers and in his calm, respectable demeanor. He came to our home within 2 days of the call and thoroughly treated our home. Prior to Will arriving we spent two days processing our home- in ways that Will mandated per warranty and in ways that we thought would be beneficial after doing some research. We placed every cloth article in our home (yes, everything- washcloths, clothes, towels, sheets, curtains, cat toys, pillows, shoes, anything with cloth) that we could into the dryer for 20 minutes on high heat and placed into new black contractor trash bags, sealed tight. We were very careful to keep organized so we knew what had been heat treated and what had not until everything was heat treated. Treated bags were placed in a pile in the middle of a basement room. We ordered bed bug proof mattress covers and box spring covers and pillow covers (kept in package until after extermination treatment). We vacuumed like our life depended on it. Bed bugs like to hide in cracks of wood and our entire house is hardwood, so we neurotically vacuumed every crevace, nook, molding, surface, etc. Then we vacuumed the couch leaving no square millimeter unturned. Literally. We got crazy neurotic with it and I am glad that we did because we found nests hidden in the seams of the cushions, complete with those super tiny sticky white eggs. We bagged up the contents of the vacuum cleaner bag outside and it remained sealed tight in the trash outside. It was a hot sunny couple of days so we placed our vacuumed couch pillows and anything that could not fit into the dryer, into sealed black contractor bags and placed in the car directly in the sun for around 2 hours. We placed heat thermometers in the car, which read 130F after about an hour. Per Cornell University website, the eggs can die after 20 minutes at 115F, so we went overboard in an effort to be entirely sure. We wiped down every window and blank surface with clorox wipes. We essentially had a near empty home, it felt like we were moving. This process takes every bit of two days, sun up to sun down, for a couple with no children in the house and two cats. Getting bed bugs puts you out. Period. Its beyond stressful and embarrassing. But then, after the painful prep process, Will came and treated our home. We were told to stay out of the house for 3 hours. We stayed out for 2 days, just to be sure. When we returned we sealed the beddings with the bed bug proof mattress covers and box spring covers and pillow covers. We didnt vacuum for a week but we sweeped the dust towards the perimeters of the floor and water mopped pathways for ourselves through the house. The house looked like it just had drywall work done- dust everywhere imaginable- drying up those terrible bed bugs. The dust will make you and your pets very very dry in your sinuses and on your skin for a few weeks. We had to replace the AC filter 8 times through the 2 weeks post treatment. About a month after the treatment we noticed an old bedframe in the basement that had bed bugs in it so we removed the frame from the home and called Will. He came out and re-treated right away. It has now been nearly two months since the treatment and we have not found any bed bugs in our home. If you have read anything about these bugs they are incredibly difficult to get rid of. You will not succeed in getting rid of them if you arent painstakingly methodical and detailed about prepping your home before extermination. I credit our diligence in prep and the wonderful work of Will White to the success of the extermination. Getting bed bugs is one of the worst things that can happen to your home. Working with Will made that experience less stressful. I would recommend him to anyone. He is confident without being cocky and has a welcoming personable manner, in addition to an extermination process that works. He never made me feel like a pain when I texted him with multiple questions through the process. He answered my every concern with respect and compassion. It truly was a pleasure working with him.

One of our rental properties had cat fleas. We used 3 "bombs" in different rooms ourselves, but it didn't solve the problem. We received very prompt treatment, the perimeter of the property was also treated, and we received clear directions for follow-up (which include vacuuming for 10 days). The flea problem was resolved, the price was reasonable, and the exterminator was friendly and professional.

I had to stay in one of the hotels in South California for my business trip. When I got back home I noticed some bug bites on me. I started to worry that I brought bed bugs home after noticing the bites. I called AtOnce Pest and spoke with Marc who immediately made me feel better. He took his time to explain how bed bugs travel, how long it takes for infestation to develop, and how it can be treated. He explained that heat treatment is the most effective treatment available today. I preferred it over using chemical treatments. He came in the next day and thoroughly inspected the bedroom. He lifted a king size mattress and box spring for his inspection with a special light. He also inspected the baseboards and carpet for any signs of bed bugs. While heat treatment is generally effective, not all professionals know how to do it properly. To protect your home and get rid of the problem, call AtOnce for help.

we were devastated to learn that we had bed bugs! Steven responded to our call right away. He was courteous, knowledgeable, and understanding of the emotional toll that this infestation was causing. Not only did he rid us of our bed bug infestation, but he also helped us to overcome our fears of the stigmatism that comes with this kind of pest. Steven had a real sense of urgency in helping us get our lives back to normal. His service is top-notch and I would recommend Optimum Pest Control for all of your Pest Control needs!

I contacted Beth after having a few bites on my foot from an unknown source. Being the paranoid person I am and recently moving into a new home, I wanted to have a professionals opinion before jumping to conclusions. Beth was comforting and courteous on the phone, and arrived at my home the very next day with her business partner and two lovely, well behaved dogs. After explaining to her my situation, she briefed me on the process, answered ask my questions, showed me certifications for her canines and quickly begun the inspection. She walked through my home with her first dog, taking time to cover every corner, closet and outlet. After the first dog found nothing, she asked if she could bring in a second dog for extra assurance. The second dog was walked through the home and found nothing. Beth and her partner then stood outside with me for an additional thirty minutes, discussing my situation and providing tips for prevention and caution. She and her partner DID NOT need to stay longer than the inspection but they did so to provide me with extra comfort and advice. I am so thankful for Beth, her partner, and her two wonderful dogs. I would and will recommend 4B's K9 Detection Service to anyone in need of a canine inspection for peace of mind they provide and their above-and-beyond services. Thanks, Beth!

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.
