Another product that will kill bed bugs instantly and flush them out of those tiny hiding places is BP-300 which requires special equipment to apply.
To completely get rid of bed bugs requires applying a few different pesticides and installing a bed bug bed cover on the mattress and box spring. The pesticides need to be applied to every possible hiding place.
A bed bug treatment can range in price depending on the severity of the infestation, and the number of rooms that need to be treated. Treating one room can cost a few hundred dollars and is usually not recommended because bed bugs can easily move to another room. Smaller homes or condos (less than 2000sqft) can expect to pay $700 - $1200. Medium size single family homes should plan to pay $1000 - $2000. This price is to treat the whole house and in some scenarios may not be required. We offer a free inspection and quote for bed bug treatments.
