My oldest has drought home bed bugs 4 times. The first two times I called other companies and paid an insane amount, to get the problem sort of under control. The third time I got Robert, and he killed every last bug! We have had almost a year of no bed bugs anywhere. Now, my son has brought them back again and I am hiring Robert again. His price is lower than the other guys and he taught us, in a very respectful way, how to prevent future bugs. I was embarrassed about having bed bugs, but Robert helped me thru it. He even tried to teach my boy how to prevent bring them home in the first place, of course he didn't listen to Robert, and we are here again. Robert cares about his clients! If you have bed bugs get Robert to kill them all.

We pretty much freaked out when we found a bed bugs in our home and contacted a few companies right away to get estimates. Northwest K9 was an estimate in the middle (which we like), and several factors impressed us right away. Susan set up a phone call with me the day I asked for an estimate, and we spoke for about an hour (on a Sunday, on her own time, answered my many questions, freely offered knowledge and advice). No other company we contacted came close to their customer support, with no strings attached. They didn't require an inspection but trusted the photos I had, and went out of their way to schedule treatment on a day that worked for us. The technicians themselves were a few minutes early (called before they came), very friendly and professional, and took extra steps to safeguard our furniture during the heat treatment (it can cause ikea veneers to peel, they noted our ikea furniture and protected it with tape and more care from the heat when needed). We were warned that our home would look like a disaster zone when done since everything would be moved around (so the heat could penetrate everywhere), but they even took the extra time to move our furniture back into place. I do wish they had warned me about the dust they applied (it's a non-toxic longterm bedbug killer) . . . I knew it would be applied to all of the baseboards but didn't realize it would coat pretty much every surface in the house from being blown around by fans when cooling down the house. It dried out our skin (feet especially) for the first couple weeks after treatment while we got our house back in order (that's how it kills the bugs), and I wish I had known to be more careful and maybe worn shoes inside for a while. There is pretty massive inconvenience with any bed bug treatment from any company (moving most/all furniture, washing/drying tons of loads of laundry/bedding/textiles, vacuuming a million times...). Heat treatment is pricey anywhere, but the peace of mind was worth the cost to us. Susan and the technicians at Northwest K9 (I think their names were Darcy, James, and Gary?) made the experience as positive as possible. They were very attentive to detail, responsive, thorough, quality, and professional. I would highly recommend them.

We had bed bugs in two houses that needed treatment. Jade came out and explained what to do and why. Both he and Liz answered all questions and did a professional job getting the houses treated ASAP. No follow up needed!

    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 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.

    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.

    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.
