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

They did exactly what they said they would do. Both men were gentlemen and seemed to know their business well. Hopefully, the bed bugs are gone. They told me that if the bed bugs were still around the apartment, they would would return to kill the last remaining bugs. And..... they called me a day later to see if all was ok. Good company practice!

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.

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.

Until you have bed bugs ( and I wouldn't wish them on my worst enemy) you will never understand what it's like! Me and my husband just purchased our first home on 7/12/18, after settlement we moved in our belongings in, a week later all hell broke loose. We quickly found out our items from storage were infested( do not use a public storage unit EVER) when I called Ron I was a mess, and Ron explained EVERYTHING, from why to how, I felt so much better! The morning of treatment we meet Ron at the house he was discrete and punctual, I felt safe leaving my home with him, we had a family vacation planned so we had stayed down the shore after the treatment, we returned last night and I am happy to say we have no bites! I was so scared we would be known as the neighbors that just moved in with bed bugs!! But Ron was so discreet and so professional my neighbors didn't even have a clue. So we are now 6 days post treatment and so far so good, I will be back to provide an update in 2 months and then 4 months but I really feel like they are gone! If you are going through this do not torture yourself or try to play exterminator call Ron you will be happy you did, yes it was an expense but you cannot put a price on your children's safety or a mother's sanity for that matter!!!!

We called on a Tuesday and spoke with Sabrina, who was very knowledgable and able to answer all of my questions. She was also able to confirm we had bed bugs by allowing me to text her a picture of what I had found. By chance, we were able to schedule our treatment the very next day. The service men arrived on time, reviewed the removal of some important and often forgotten items with us and called later that day with an update, as promised. In addition to all of this, Sabrina provided me with a number to contact her directly to answer any questions since we had only one night to prepare the house. We couldn't ask for anything more.

    I started to notice bites when I woke up every morning. I was recommended to prohome by a friend. Anthony, the owner came out, inspected and found out I had bed bugs! I was totally freaked out. He calmed me down, walked me through the process and came back and did the job. I couldn't be happier.

    John is amazing. He was really determined in getting rid of bedbugs from my house and he did. I finally had a good sleep because of him. He treated as if its his own house. He made sure he treated each and every corner of the mattress, box spring and carpet. He initially told two treatments but after I found one more bug, I texted him and he came over to do additional treatment for free. He knew all the chemicals he used and explained me the benefits of each. He even treated the electrical outlets. If you want to eliminate bedbugs from your house, this is the guy you have to go to.

    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.
