6 Tips for Hiring a Professional Bed Bug Extermination Expert

Bed Bug Extermination is a service where cheap is never better. Cheap bed bug extermination, in fact, usually ends up being quite expensive. Bed bugs can come back and another treatment is needed. And another. And another.

Buying “cheap” is just one way to make a mistake when hiring a bed bug exterminator. General pest control companies that do part-time bed bug control can be costly, but you are hiring expertise. They should be able to get rid of bedbugs – all the bedbugs – right? Sadly, part-time pest control companies don’t know bed bugs well enough to fix the problem. Part-time bed bug experts haven’t seen enough. They won’t know how to solve many types of bed bug problems.

Professional Bed Bug Extermination Experts fight bed bugs all day, every day. They are the best option a homeowner has in the fight to get rid of bed bugs. They’ve seen it all. They know how to get rid of bed bugs even in difficult infestations. They’ll probably end up being less costly, too – they’ll kill all of the bed bugs in fewer treatments (sometimes even a single treatment) and stop the problem for good.
When hiring a bed bug extermination company look for:

  1. Testimonials & Reviews: Check out the Google, Facebook, and Yelp profiles (or Angie’s List if you’re able). Read good reviews AND bad reviews – they tell you a lot about a company’s bed bug extermination history and success rate.
  2. Inspection Options: A true bed bug professional will offer a variety of ways to not only detect IF you have bed bugs, but where they are hiding.
  3. Treatment Options: Many pest control companies only have one or two bed bug treatment options. A Professional Bed Bug Expert will have 4 or more.
  4. Treatment Guarantee: Professional Bed Bug Exterminators know the chances of bed bugs coming back is slim so they’re proud to offer treatment guarantees to customers.
  5. License & Insurance: Finding bed bug exterminators that are licensed & insured is a simple way to make sure a company isn’t fly-by-night. Equally, you should only ever hire licensed & insured contractors to work in your home.
  6. Professional Affiliations: Every pest control company should be a member of the National Pest Management Association (NPMA), and they should belong to their state’s Pest Control Association. When hiring bed bug exterminators in particular, you want to find a company who does business with other organizations like Thermal Remediation, International Association of Canine Pest Inspectors, or the National Entomology Scent Detection Canine Association.

I cannot express how great it is to work with Presidio. They are reliable. thorough and fast to respond to any and all appointment requests. In the mortgage industry you find yourself against many deadlines, and we have yet to worry about an order we have with Presidio. In fact, they over exceed any expectations I have on what a reasonable turn around time is. I would recommend them over any Pest Management company in the tri-county area! You will not be disappointed.read more

Pest control for bedbugs for apartment complex. Have been dealing with bedbugs for about 7/8 months now. Initially heat and chemically "treated" did a few follow up appts and never showed up for the last couple that they said they would. Fewer bedbugs and the duration that they'd be seen after went from upwards of 10 every day down to 1 or 2 bedbugs every 2 weeks to a month (just thought maybe they were single straddlers". Anyway, bedbugs started coming more frequently again and in increasing numbers again, so apt management was notified and Pest control guy came, had an attitude (not to mention, this particular employee seemed always to have an attitude any time he did actually come to do his job) about "why" he was just now hearing about them again after 6 months. And I told him, well, they weren't coming so frequently anymore until now, plus you never showed up for the last couple "follow ups" he looked around and asked "where are you seeing them?" I said, what does that matter, we are seeing them and they need to be treated. Well, he didn't treat anything that day and was "supposed to" come back a couple days later and never showed. So now I have to continuously go to apartment management who are only here 3 days per week for a total of 12 hours (4 hrs each day). Another week passes and apartment management said that "Pest control had come" I said, no they absolutely did not. If they did, they didn't come to my apartment. They also claim the initial heat/chemical treatment doesn't kill the bedbug eggs. That doesn't seem right either. I bet if they had to live with bedbugs they'd treat theirs real quick....Update: they came and were completely professional. Fabulous the last times to treat the bed bugs. Just a shame it couldn't have been treated the first time. Thank you!read more

We have been using Presidio for a few years now. From one house to another, 20 miles apart. We switched from using a big brand-name company and couldn't be happier with the results. They are professional, personable and thorough! They speak to us in layman's terms and help us to understand what it is they're doing to help. They give options and let us know exactly what we are getting, no surprises. We have three children and animals and are completely comfortable with the products they use. They've proven to be effective, time after time.read more
