Question: Hello. Do you provide bed bug extermination service? If so, how much does it cost?
ANSWER: Getting rid of bed bugs can be very difficult. There is no magic wand which can control these blood-sucking pests. Control of bed bugs can take time and multiple follow-up treatments.
The first part of any bed bug control program is a thorough inspection. This includes not only areas that are infested, but also adjoining areas. The inspection can be time consuming, based upon amount of furnishings and size of infested area as well as the adjoining areas.
When treatment is needed, pricing will depend on the size of the area to be treated as well as the type of treatment. If standard control, using products specifically applied for bed bugs, you can expect to remove carpet edges where necessary, perhaps outlet plates and some personal belongings. If heat treatment is used in areas offering that service, certain materials must be removed such as candles, makeup, etc.
Since there are so many possibilities, it is impossible to make a blanket statement about the cost to get rid of bed bugs in every case.
The conditions of each property are different, and therefore the problems are different for each house. Thus, quotes and estimates for the cost of bed bug control are best done locally and perhaps after an inspection by a qualified Pest Specialist.
The first step in this process is to call your local Orkin Pest Control Branch location and request a bed bug inspection. A highly trained and bed bug-qualified Orkin Pest Specialist will conduct a very thorough inspection of your premises. Upon completion of the inspection and an assessment of the situation, the Pest Specialist will recommend a customized solution for your bed bug problem, which will include pricing and guarantees.
