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.

I heard back within 15 minutes of using Thumbtack. He was able to schedule me within a day for bed bug treatment. He was professional, punctual, and easy to work with. Ten days after the first treatment he came back and I haven't seen any bed bugs since. Highly recommend! I would definitely call him again if I ever needed to.

I found bed bugs two days ago. John called and was really knowledgeable and reassuring. His price was the best and he offers a year warranty when most others only offer 90 days.

Had a minor Bed bug problem, Brent came to spray the house and inspect the areas. The guy is awesome, he gave us details on what he was doing, why he was doing it, and what to expect in the meantime. He not only treated the bed bugs but also apparently a roach problem we were unaware of so he killed 2 bugs with one stone(spray). He came back for the follow up and even sprayed our kitchen to help with some ants we had. He was prompt and professional with every call and update. I highly suggest giving him your business. Plus he's half the price of all the commercial pest control companies, those places are a joke.

We were exceptionally pleased with the service we received from Terminators Pest Management (TPM). Jerry and his team were very thorough and kept us abreast of the treatment process every step of the way. In addition, he and Shirley (in the office) were very informative and took the time to educate us about bed bugs and the most effective strategies for exterminating them. Jerry offered practical solutions for reducing the risk of subsequent infestations. I would recommend TPM to anyone seeking extermination of bed bugs. Thank you TPM and Thumbtack for your assistance.

Overall this has been a good experience and legionnaire did their best to accommodate our bed bug issue. There were some times that they were late to arrive, and I think they could have searched the location more thoroughly at first, but they did ultimately find the infestation and followed through with their services - which worked! They definitely followed up when I would call in, and were sensitive to the trauma that bed bugs come with, and they were a friendly team of people. For the price point it was effective and went smoothly overall. I would for sure call them in for a service again if I had to.

Brent was a lifesaver. He came the very next morning after I called and worked around my schedule. He was always available when I had questions (and I had many) and he put my mind at ease. If you are dealing with bed bugs, which I hope you never have to, Brent is your guy!

I contacted Harpoon Pest solutions base off of their reviews and the free inspection. My technician was Quincy J. Mr. Quincy came out and inspected my home for bed bugs. It was discovered that I did have bed bugs in my home. This has been a stressful experience for my family but Quincy has made it a lot easier to bear. His customer service is outstanding he has always been available for all my questions and concerns. I just received my first treatment and the day after I had some concerns, Quincy immediately came back out to my home to inspect. So far I am extremely impressed with my pest control services. If you want empathy, knowledge and great customer service chose Harpoon pest solutions.

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.

I’ve been dealing with bed bugs for quite some time. I thought I will be able to do it myself. Of course as you know this was not a case:) I’ve had enough and finally decided to hire a professional. Yes, I was very skeptical, but Javan assured me that it will work. He worked meticulously to cover every square inch of my house. The treatment was done about a month ago and so far I haven’t noticed any bugs. Hope to never deal with them again, brrrr. I will definitely recommend Javan. Besides his great work performance he is very pleasant to deal with. Way to go!!!

So far, I'm very satisfied with the service I recieved from Green Pest Solutions. I had them over to treat my apartment for bed bugs and they were very informative, always able to answer my questions about how to prepare and what to expect. After the first treatment, I found maybe one or two bugs still living, and after the follow up treatment I haven't seen a single bug yet. It may be a little too early to say I'm totally rid of these horrible things, but even if I'm not, Green Pest Guarantees their treatment up to 60 days afterwards, so they'll come back free of charge if I see anything that needs to be killed. Over all, compared to the price of competing services, Green Pest is a fantastic deal and I would recommend them.

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
