Bed Bugs


 Bed bugs get their name because they are commonly found in beds but can also be found in other places where humans spend a lot of time: hotels, airplanes, and couches.

Bed bugs can feed on the blood of any warm-blooded animal. Their most common targets are humans because, unlike animals with fur, we have a lot of exposed skin for them to bite.

 Bed bugs do not spread disease, but their bites can become red, itchy welts.

Bed Bug Treatment


 Express Pest Control specializes in bedbug treatments. Most bedbug programs consist of two (2) treatments approximately 30 days apart with a guarantee to follow the final treatment.

Our bedbug guarantees are 2-3 months longer than 95% of our competition. 

Express Pest Control’s Bedbug Treatment includes a combination of steam and chemical applications.


Depending on infestation levels, some applications will consist of 2 or 3 treatments, approximately 2 to 3 weeks apart.

Bed Bug Prevention


  • Don’t take mattresses or padded furniture that has been left at the curb or on the street.
  • Keep your suitcases covered in plastic and off the floor when you travel.
  • When you travel, take a small flashlight to help you look for bed bugs and check your bed sheets for blood spots.
  • When you return from a trip, wash all of your clothes – even those that have not been worn – in hot water to ensure that any bed bugs that may have made it that far are not placed into your drawers/closet.
  • Bed bugs are hard to see, so if you think you have bed bugs, call a pest management professional



Express Pest Control does not have a “one size fits all” guarantee! Instead, we offer options and guarantees tailored to each service we provide, the pest and the structure we are treating and the conditions that caused the pest problem.  

  • We carefully assess each and every situation and inspect each and every structure.
  • After our assessment, we offer our customers options to solve the current problem(s) and prevent future problems.
  • If certain conditions exist in or around the foundation of your home (e.g., moisture or heavy/dense vegetation), a spring and fall treatment may be recommended to control future pest problems.
  • Some insect infestations may require a second treatment – after which we back our service with a 3-6 month guarantee.
  • We provide spring applications to prevent the nesting of bees, wasps & hornets for residences, businesses & commercial buildings with a full season guarantee.


Melissa P

  “Al was early, explained what he found, what he could do, what to look for and told me that I could contact him if needed and that he would definitely call me in 3-4 weeks to check on how things were going and if we needed and in between treatment or even a 2nd to finish the job. I will definitely call him again if I need to!” 

Gail W

 “We needed someone to come on short notice and at a specific time as we had carpenters who discovered  carpenter ants. Al came himself, took care of the problem, made sure the carpenters knew when it was safe to work in the area again, checked out another area for us and sprayed around the perimeter of the house!  He was wonderful.” 

Kimberly B

 “Al of Express Pest Control was extremely pleasant, thorough and timely. He is a kind person and I have not had any issues with the ants since his visit. I would absolutely recommend his services to anyone in need of a quick, low-cost exterminator.” 

Kathy S

  “Al came out to the house and it was apparent from the get go that he really knew his stuff. He took his time and explained everything he was doing and made sure to address all the problems we were having. I would HIGHLY recommend Express Pest Control! “ 

Franco F

"I contacted Express Pest Control to do a bed bug treatment at a rental property of mine. Al and his team did a fantastic job not only with the extermination, which was very effective, but in communication with myself and the tenant. They are pest control professionals to the nth degree and have tremendous knowledge of all the processes involved in the extermination. I would recommend Express Pest Control to anyone needing extermination services." 

Joshua Y

"Right on time, made quick work on the house. Did a spray for spiders inside and out (been seeing a lot in our new house). Have only seen one spider in the two weeks since. Very friendly, efficient, fairly priced, even helped us jump start our car!! Happened to be leaving the house just as he was finishing, our car died and he helped jump start it! Very nice guy!"
