As a pest control company serving the entire Portland Metro area, we get a lot of calls from people struggling with bed bugs. Bed bugs are a problem that seems to be getting worse in Portland, Oregon. With infestations spreading at an alarming rate, it is important to get the correct information so that you know how to deal with them. Here are some typical questions that we get regarding our bed bug treatments.
How much does a bed bug treatment cost?
Bed bugs are very difficult to get rid of. The cost of getting them exterminated really depends upon how bad they are and how far they have spread. Unfortunately, this is not something that can be easily determined over the phone and a free home inspection will have to be set up to firm up the price. Most companies in the area will charge anywhere from $250 to $350 per room. Our prices are a bit lower and generally run around the $200 range per infested room.
Do you have coupons available?
Yes, we have a $50 off coupon that you can use if your treatment cost is over $200.
Do you guarantee that my bed bugs will be gone?
Yes, as long as you follow our treatment plan. Getting rid of bed bugs is a difficult task that requires a team effort. We will put together a treatment plan and give you some advice, but it is up to you to follow it. If you are doing everything that is asked of you and we are treating, the bed bugs will be gone! However, it is important to keep in mind that most bed bug infestations will need more than one treatment. On average, it takes 2 to 3 visits before a bed bug infestation can be successfully exterminated.
Are the products you use safe?
Any product or chemical can be unsafe if not used correctly. Our technicians take great care in keeping you and your family safe while applying our products. Keep in mind that the products that we use have been registered and extensively tested by the EPA. The EPA determines safety protocol for each product and we follow the EPA’s specifications exactly. We always trend towards products that are safe and environmentally friendly, but we carry a large variety of options. Whatever we use, you can be sure that we will apply it in a manner that is safe for your family.
How do I prepare for a bed bug treatment?
Take any linens, clothes, bed sheets, etc. in the room we are about to treat and put them in garbage bags (being careful not to spread the problem). Then, you can take the bags to the utility room and transfer the items into the dryer on high heat for about 30 minutes. This will kill any bed bugs or eggs. Next, be sure to have the room free of clutter. We will need to take apart the bed and will need room to do so. Then, any night stands or dressers near the bed should be emptied (again, placing the contents in garbage bags or some other container). Lastly, it is helpful to vacuum thoroughly before we arrive. After you finish vacuuming, be sure to dispose of the contents of the vacuum bag or container outside.
