Find yourself asking, “How much is a bed bug exterminator?” The cost of bed bug extermination varies based on the size of your home or property, the number of rooms with bed bugs, the size of the infestation, and how many follow up treatments are needed. You can expect to pay anywhere from $1.00-$3.00 per square foot depending on those factors.
That being said, this isn’t a bug you want to mess with! Though the price of a bed bug exterminator may not be the thing you were hoping to spend that extra cash on, it will make your home or property a cleaner, safer place for you, your loved ones, or employees.
What are bed bugs?
Bed bugs are tiny pests that are extremely hard to see. In fact, you often won’t see them until there is an infestation. Living in anything soft, like your bed, pillows, couches, carpet, and more, they hide out until it’s dark when they can drink your blood.
Though they’re not vampires, they might as well be! They’ll latch onto you and anyone else in close proximity to feed. Then, they reproduce quickly and spread. You may wake up with specks of blood on your mattress, bites on your arms and legs in a triangle or straight pattern, and/or black flecks on your mattress.
Are bed bugs dangerous?
Though bed bugs are usually more of a nuisance than anything else, they can be harmful to others as well. Like any other bug that deals with your blood, there is a small chance that you could get sick. This is especially true for those people who are already at a risk of disease, like:
- The elderly
- Young children
- Those with low immune systems
- Anyone already low on iron
