Frequently Asked Questions
I think I have bed bugs!! What do I do now?
Try to remain as calm as possible. When bed bugs are present, they leave behind evidence. In our experience, our customer’s find droppings (black marks or dots that resemble a ball point pen or permanent marker stain), eggs (similar to grains of white rice), cast skins (look like an empty shell of a bed bug), or live bed bugs.
How can I determine if I have bed bugs?
We often recommend beginning with some form of monitoring. If you haven’t observed any of the typical bed bug signs, or evidence we mentioned above, we find it is most helpful to put some monitoring strategies in place. Our most common recommendation is to utilize interceptor or climb up traps, insect glue traps or insect monitors. These typically go under or next to the feet of the area of concern (bed, couch, chair, etc). The goal is to attempt to obtain a specimen so we can determine what type of pest you’re dealing with…
BUT… I HAVE BITES!!!!!!
This is by far the most common call we receive. If you have bites, the most important thing to do is rule out other pests or something non-pest related. This is why we always suggest monitoring whenever the evidence are bites alone. When bed bugs feed (i.e., bite) they process their meal and leave behind their droppings. This also most likely means they’re growing and therefore shedding their exoskeleton (cast skin) or laying eggs. Thus, when bites are present, we should be finding other forms of evidence. Given that bites can be related to a number of pests and present for a variety of reasons, alone, they’re never a good indicator of bed bug activity.
I have an older mattress/dark sheets/poor lighting in my room… How will I be able to see them?
This is a great question! Sometimes, bed bug activity can be difficult to find. HOWEVER, bed bugs are good hiders, but they’re not as stealth as they may seem. Whenever this question comes up, we often recommend the use of mattress and box spring encasements. These fully zip around the mattress and/or box spring to protect these items. As the surface is bright white, the hope is any activity will be more readily seen when inspecting and monitoring. Also, for peace of mind, it may be helpful to use lightly colored sheets and bedding to assess if activity is present.
Bed Bug Treatment Reviews
Matt and everyone at Prodigy Pest Solutions are the hope, sunshine and comfort in a horrible cloudy miserable anxiety-provoking bed bug infested world.
Last year, my roommate and I had a bed bug problem in our apartment and I basically lost my mind (stay away from the internet message boards, you guys). Matt was absolutely wonderful. From the very first phone call, unlike the other exterminators I’d talked to, they were so comforting, warm and kind. Sabrina (Sabina?) gave me all the information I needed, answered all my questions (and there were a lot) and we scheduled for the team to come and heat/chemically treat our apartment.
Matt and his team showed up right on time, warned us that it would look a little crazy after treatment (your stuff gets moved all around so they can kill every little devil), answered my plethora of anxious questions (“Will you be able to kill them? Do I need a new mattress? Will I survive this? Are you SURE?”) and did their thing. After one treatment, the bugs were gone.
Not only did they get rid of the bugs BUT Matt was incredibly responsive (And still is!) I was pretty PTSD-y re: the bugs and I still send pictures of little bugs that are hanging out in my apartment to Matt to see if I need to be concerned and he gets back to me super quickly and so far, we’re bug free. I recommend Matt and his team to everyone I meet. They are wonderful good people who know their stuff and care for their clients. I wouldn’t use any other exterminator in ANY city.Liia R.
I’m a property manager and one of my tenants suspected they had bed bugs. Of course I want to take care of this asap before they spread to other apartments. I called prodigy and spoke with Sabrina, the bedbug specialist. She was SO comforting and reassuring AND knowledgeable about bed bugs. She spent a while with me on the phone asking questions and giving tips for a visual inspection. She sent someone within a few days to do a professional inspection and found a small area near the bed with bed bugs and droppings (ewww!). We set up a heat treatment ASAP and have not found any bugs since (its been about a month – Ill keep you posted). Phew! It was pricey, (and seems to be pricey with every pest control company) but so worth it! From what I’ve heard, the heat treatment is the best way to eradicate bed bugs AND their eggs. They heated the whole apartment to 140 degrees!
What an unnerving experience for my tenants. They are now put at ease and so am I. We were all itchy thinking about it!
I appreciate all of the phone support Sabrina gave me and my tenant (we called a bunch of times) and the thorough heat treatment.
I would call these guys in a heart beat if we ever had an issue like this again. My fingers and toes are crossed that we don’t ever have to!Laurie E.
From across the country, I had to deal with my mother, who suffers from dementia, and her bed bug nightmare. I finally found Sabrina after talking with myriad companies after hours of searching and, from the start, I knew I was in safe, kind, compassionate hands. Not only did Sabrina get me service scheduled in one day, she took me through the process as well as proactive measures to keep the bedbugs away in the future. She called the day of the extermination to keep me updated on progress. Five stars isn’t close to the number I’d give if I could. Prodigy Pest is the best…thank you, Sabrina!!Suzy Rudofker
