Once we discovered that we had bed bugs we tried to eliminate them ourselves. We removed everything from the second floor of our two story home except for the largest furniture into the garage. We then had the carpets steam cleaned. I personally steamed the furniture with a professional grade steamer. But, no matter what length we went, we still would find a bed bug or a bed bug egg or bed bug shedding indicating that we had not gotten them all. Since they reproduce quickly, we knew that it was a losing battle. After, deciding that heat was the best way to make sure that all bed bugs and their eggs were killed, I got quotes from various reputable exterminating companies - all from Angies List. I found the rates to be outrageous - from $3500.00 (Rose) to $4500.00 (Scherzingers). My feeling was that here in Cincinnati, families are experiencing a crisis with bed bugs and the major companies are willing to gouge them with fees that are extremely difficult for most families to handle. Then I called the Bed Bug Boys. Maurice said he would get rid of the bed bugs on both floors plus the garage for 1500.00. Scherzinger said that they could not heat our garage the desired temperature and so the $4500.00 would not include the garage. At this point, all of our second floor belongings were in the garage and so Scherzinger was not an option regardless of their high price . Maurice and his partner from the Bed Bug Boys showed up at the appointed time and brought in two 204,000 BTU heaters and routed the very wide ducting to our various rooms plus the garage. Five hours later they were done and all I can tell you is the entire house and garage were hot! In fact, the garage reached 160 degrees. It's been about a month and no bed bugs so far. We do regular inspections ourselves since we have gotten quite proficient at spotting bed bugs. Maurice guarantees his work for sixty days. Some of the other companies that I called only has a 30 day warranty. We are totally and completely satisfied with the Bed Bug Boys. Maurice got rid of the bed bugs for $3000.00 less than the other guys and the other guys could not even include the garage! I highly recommend the Bed Bug Boys.
