Quick Bed Bug Facts
• Bed bugs can detect a host within 5 feet of them.
• They become active at night between the hours of midnight and 5am.
• 40% of people that have been bitten have no reaction at all.
• When the bed bugs feed they inject their saliva into its host and the saliva contains several proteins that routinely cause an allergic response from their hosts.
• They will aggregate near their host until the infestation becomes heavy. Then because of crowding, they many start seeking refuge farther away. When they feed they will probe the skin until they find the most suitable spot with good flow.
• They will feed for about 5 to 10 minutes.
• They can ingest 7 times their body weight. That is equivalent to an average sized male drinking 120 gallons of liquid.
• Each one will feed every 3 to 7 days.
• A female will produce 3-4 eggs per day and up to 300 to 500 in a lifetime.
• The eggs will hatch in about 10 to 15 days.
• The life cycle from egg to adult is between 5 weeks and four months, depending on temperature and availability of a blood meal.
• After 10 days they will need another blood meal in order to produce any more eggs.
• Under optimal conditions (temperature between 70 and 90 and with the host available) the bed bug population can double every 15 days.
• The ideal temperature for bed bugs is between 70 to 82 degrees.
• On average a starved bed bug at any stage in room temperature will last for 70 days.
• They will die instantly at a temperature of 120 degrees
• At 0 degrees it will take bed bugs 2 weeks to die.
• Wingless, reddish brown in color, size of an apple seed when they are adults.
• First instar bed bugs that have not fed are clear, about 1mm, barely visible to the naked eye.
Latin Name: Cimex lectularius L.
Bed bugs are flat, reddish-brown, oval insects up to 4 to 5 mm long or the size of an apple seed. Swollen and reddish after a blood meal.
Behavior, Diet & Habits:
Bed bugs only feed on blood. Under cool conditions, bed bugs have been able to survive up to a year without a meal. They prefer to be more active at night when the host is asleep. Found in cracks and crevices, including mattress seams, sheets, furniture, behind baseboards, electrical outlet plates and picture frames. Often found in hotels, where they can travel from room to room and in visitors’ luggage or other personal belongings such as purses and briefcases.
Females can deposit one to five eggs a day, and may lay 200 to 500 eggs in a lifetime. Under normal room temperatures and with an adequate food supply, they can live for more than 300 days.
Signs of a Bed Bug Infestation:
There are many possible signs of bed bug activity. The first would be seeing the bugs. Adult bed bugs are about the shape and size of an apple seed. A second sign would be case skins. As the juvenile bugs grow, they shed their skins, discovery of which can indicate their presence. After feeding, bed bugs return to their harborage to hide. They eventually defecate in these areas, which appears as black to brown stains on porous surfaces or black to brown mounds on nonporous surfaces. Bites also may indicate bed bug activity, but further signs will need to be found, since other sources can cause red welts on the skin.
Bed bugs (often misspelled as bedbugs) are small, nocturnal, wingless insects that belong to the family of Cimicidae. They feed on human blood and other warm-blooded hosts. They are oval in shape and grow up to 4 to 5 mm long when fully grown. Their skin color is rust brown to a deeper red brown. Bed bugs are also known as “mahogany flats,” “red coats” and “chinches.” The adult bed bug does not have wings and has a flattened body. Bed bugs are both dorsoventrally flattened and thin, which creates a great advantage for them. They can hide in unusual places such as behind baseboards, floor cracks, and under carpets or behind loose wallpaper, which can make them difficult to detect. Not only can they be hard to detect, but bed bugs also tend to stay close together and have a distinctively sweet, yet unpleasant smell. Fecal smears on mattresses and nearby furnishings are also signs of a bed bug infestation. Their bites can leave itchy welts on the skin and can cause allergic reactions, such as severe itching, though not everyone reacts to their bite. Bed bugs have existed since the ancient times and are found throughout the world. There are different species of bed bugs, but the common bed bug (Cimex lectularius) is particularly adaptable to human environments. Other species are known to prefer birds and bats but also will feed on humans if necessary. Since they can survive in birds’ nests, they can be seen in houses and buildings that have several bird nests, particularly on rooftops. . Bed bugs have a great worldwide distribution, due to human travelers who transport them in luggage, clothing, bedding and furniture. Though they may reside in unusual places, they are also likely to be found in small cracks near a bed or in comforters and bed sheets.
How you pick them up:
It’s possible to pick up bed bugs almost any place—they’ve infested offices, stores, hotels, gyms and countless other places. They can hide in your luggage, personal belongings, or even on you, and hitchhike a ride back to your home, condo, townhouse or apartment. Once indoors, they can be extremely difficult to control without the help of an experienced pest specialist. A bed bug infestation has nothing to do with cleanliness — you can pick them up in the finest hotels, and they can hitchhike into the cleanest homes at any time. But, you can help reduce your chances of a costly bed bug infestation by catching them early.

Unfortunately my landlord has a contract with another exterminator company but if I had my choice, I 100% would've used these guys! Vladimir was so helpful in talking me through the process, even sending me his cell number so I could text pictures and ask a thousand questions since I've never experienced bed bugs before. He even took the time outside of business hours to reply to my questions. They're friendly and I trust their expertise. I can't recommend them enough!
I was extremely unnerved and completely freaked out when I realized I had bed bugs. Vladimir returned my call on the Saturday before Christmas within 30 minutes and took his time to calm me down and assure me he could help. They came out the day after Christmas and determined my infestation was low. They did their jobs and instructed me on what I needed to do in order to effectively rid myself of these awful bugs. I have not seen another live bed bug since their first treatment and they confirmed on their second treatment that they saw none either. They were very kind, very thorough and went above and beyond for me. I cannot thank them enough!!!
Windy City Bed Bugs Specialist is a dependable and very efficient exterminating company who fallows through on all task and projects in all aspects of extermination services.They are an asset to my client and i enjoy working with then greatly . Looking forward keeping them for all of our properties for many more years ., and we highly recommend them .
Vladimir and the team was absolutely wonderful to work with!! Answered every call, every email and was so patient and helpful.
Windy City Bed Bug Specialists are hands down the best pest control service people to deal with bedbugs. Vladimir was EXTREMELY attentive to me and politely answered every single question I messaged him with (even on weekends)! WCBBS knows what they're doing with bedbugs, and they know how to handle anxious customers like me. I am overall very pleased with the treatment that I received to take care of the bedbug issue in my apartment.
Vladimir & George are the best @ what they do! Having a pest like this invade your home is totally Stressful & they were kind, compassionate, & caring. They did a Great Job & saved all my furniture! Their fee is totally reasonable & the level of service is Excellent! Windy City Bedbug Specialists are far above a 5 star rating!!!!!! I would Highly recommend them to everyone!!!
All I can say is thank goodness I found these guys.
These guys were the best! Old school Chicago guys who get the job done quickly, professionally, and at a reasonable price. They were very calming during an extremely stressful situation. I would recommend them to anyone!
Fantastic experience with Windy City. They were quick to respond, answered all of my questions, and had great customer service throughout the entire process.
The two Men that came to our home deserve more than five stars. I was stressed & unnerved due to bugs being in our home! Then I found out after visiting the ER, I have an allergic reaction to the bite of these little boogers! :-( The gentlemen guaranteed us that they will get rid of them & that they did. Thank you!
Great service and most important, it worked I wanted to wait a few months before I post this review just to make sure the problem is resolved. I’m very satisfied with the results, no more issues with those nasty creatures!
Fast service, without too much disruption. It's been several years and bed bugs (acquired from a piece of furniturewe bought that came with this 'gift' to us) never returned.
Windy City Bed Bug Specialists were very professional and knowledgeable about dealing with bed bugs. I am happy that they were willing to return to my home not once but twice after the initial application without extra charge. The situation was handled the first time I just had a situation where we were a little paranoid. I mean once you see a bed bug you feel like you keep seeing them. But they were nice, they did a second treatment on the second visit and explained the process again. Thanks again Windy City Specialist. I definitely recommend them for bed bug problems.
Their treatment worked -- the building has been bug free for over three years now.
The A team has arrived!!!! 100% Accurate! Won’t let you down!
Nice guys. Took care of our problem. Highly recommended.
Great professional company!
As I’m sure anyone who is reading this is well aware, bed bugs are a nasty, horrible problem to have. Thankfully, we used Windy City Bed Bugs Specialists. The compassion AND effectiveness showed by the two brothers (also a plus, it’s a family owned business) was astounding! Still early days, but we haven’t had any problems since they’ve been here! It’s such a relief to have found such pleasant, hardworking, and helpful guys in such a bad situation! I would recommend them to anyone! Hopefully I will never have this issue again, but if I do, I know who I can trust to help.
Top shelf service. Came out during record cold. Arrived early. Truly professional.
I was real happy about the quick response and the great job the guys made my place bed bug free! ☺😉.no more worries.THANK YOU SO MUCH!
Very professional and explained everything step by step. I have never met anyone who knew more about bugs then my high school science teacher. This company gets information from you, tell you mistakes and then cleans up the problem. They live by there guarantee. Will recommend this company.
Very helpful, personable, and kind company. Were able to help out super quickly. Quick response time, and answered all my questions during the treatment process. Treatments finished a few weeks ago and so far so good - no bugs
A decent warranty. Priced right, they know their stuff. Would recommend.. I "trust" the 2 brothers!!..
I called and was amazed that they were at my home within an hour. They were complete with their analysis and treatment plan. Windy City Bug Specialists were extremely professional and understanding of how awful of an experience it is to be faced with this problem. I feel very confident in their services and would recommend them to anyone.
These guys are AMAZING. They know what they are doing. They did it right away, explained everything in detail and answered every question I had. Even after the first treatment they texted to make sure everything was ok and helped with all questions I had. Best thing of all it is a family business. They are very personable guys and understanding. So far we are going on 4 weeks and not a single live critter in site and my pets were unharmed from their treatment. I would definitely recommend using these guys! Thank you guys! I can now sleep without a worry, now to just get rid of the neighbors who brought them into the building!
Chris was wonderful, same-day consultation during what was supposed to be a move gone horribly wrong (movers found dead bed bugs on the spare mattress, yikes!!). Reassured me that my problem was very small and gave me very clear directions as to what I needed to do to get ready for heat treatment. Treatment itself was fast, and everyone I've talked to has been very comforting (I'm a bit of a nervous wreck on a good day, so this experience has been anxiety inducing to say the least). No bed bugs or bites seen in the new place about a week after the move; I'll update again in three months and see how we're doing. Customer service overall has been five stars without a doubt. Thank you all so much!
Promptly arrived at our house. Showed us the evidence of bed bug infestation. Eliminated our problem. We were very pleased! Thanks
Best price in town very happy with my experience Saw results in one day wouldn't go anywhere else if I can give them 10 Stars I would
Highly professional and courteous from the very first contact. I made telephone call that was answered promptly. All my questions were answered. I was assured once in their hands I will have nothing to worry about. They worked around my available time, they were prompt and efficient. Instructions were easy to follow and after two visits (treatments) our nightmare was over. I would recommend them without hesitation. They are courteus, prompt efficient, clean, professional, and very reliable. I give them five stars and very trilled with the service I received.
Windy City made me feel at ease with this terrible situation.they answered all my questions and were very professional and honest I give them 5 stars!!!
I have met the best customer service man in Vladimir. He is personally a very informative man for this business. He is not only professional and he gave me a call afterwards to make sure I was sure of my options. Nice to have such customer appreciation even before we hired the service. I read his reviews as well and will be in touch soon . Thanks Vladimir.
A very friendly, professional staff who quickly scheduled an appointment with me and followed up about their treatment immediately after finishing it. We have had problems with bedbugs for months and nothing worked, but since their treatment, we have not gotten bitten. There have been a few stragglers but it seems like they're dying out. Even if further treatment is required, they offer a 90 day guarantee, which is very reassuring to have. I highly recommend them if you have bed bug issues and want them gone as quickly and effortlessly as possible.
We brought home bed bugs from traveling within the US. They hitched a ride in our suitcases and made a home in our master bedroom. My wife and I tried feverishly to get rid of them with common killer solutions from Home Depot and Menard' s. Nothing worked so after 6 months of trying we called Windy City Bug Specialists and within 24 hours we had a first treatment. We immediately saw results. Two more visits and in 60 days we were 100% bug free. Thank you WCBBC!
I cannot recommend this company enough! Having bed bugs is pretty awful! But, they got us through it! They are awesome...priced well, super friendly, efficient, professional, and I could go on! I never write reviews, but had to for them because they were so great! I am very grateful that we found them to take care of these gross bugs! Thank you! Lindsay
The folks at Windy City Bed Bug Specialists are very friendly and attentive! They answered all of my questions and provided helpful instructions. Their excellent customer service has taken away much of the stress of dealing with a bed bug infestation.
They are simply incredible to work with. Helped us in a very difficult apartment situation at the same time we were trying to move out while my wife was pregnant with our first child! We only lived in this city apartment a couple of months before we learned the whole building was infested with bed bugs. We had never experienced bed bugs before and hope to never again. They came twice (though only charged us once) to spray all our items and follow proper protocol before we moved and nothing followed us to our beautiful new home in the suburbs. We are eternally grateful!
When my pesky problem arose that faithful day in late April I looked for companies that had excellent reviews. Low and behold Windy City Bed Bug Specialists stood out and I quickly reached for my phone to book a treatment. They were not only professional but very patient and attentive to all my needs. Answered all my necessary questions and I sleep better at night now that our problem is resolved. Thank you for your prompt response and handling this sensitive situation Windy City!
Phenomenal service. I couldn't recommend them more highly. No better option in the City.
This is a great company that provides excellent service. The team is very professional and they do great work. I highly recommend them.
Outstanding. Nice, patient when the appointment was scheduled incorrectly by us, good explanation about the process. Very thorough and understanding of working with tenant schedules. Great job.
They were reasonable and did a good job!
These guys did a great job exterminating bedbugs at my mom's place in Chicago. They did an initial sweep, a follow-up appointment, and then another just to be safe because we still found 1 sluggish bug after the second one. It's about 9 months later. Mom's still bedbug free, despite the fact her neighbors didn't accept treatments. Success!
Great work nice people to deal with
Simply the BEST! I had a bed bug problem. Not anymore. These 2 guys are very straight talking and know their craft. I would recommend them to anyone who needs to eradicate some bed bugs. Thanks guys!
Prompt, courteous, humorous, and most importantly, effective! These brothers are marvelous at what they do; I recommend them in the highest terms for these pesky bugs.
These guys are the real deal! They are understanding, comforting, and they do a great job of getting the job done. The problem in my home is history, gone, no more critters, thanks to these guys.
WORTH EVERY PENNY!! These guys really do know what they're doing. I contacted their site the middle of the night (those bites woke me up) and they were doing the first application the next afternoon. Not a bite since - at all. We didn't even have to give up our mattress :) The price included a second just-in-case follow-up visit. Plus the NINETY day guarantee. Thoroughly worth every penny!
Windy City Bedbug Specialists are awesome!!! They came out immediately and were so knowledgeable on those bedbugs!!! And they got rid of them that day!!! I had no more bedbugs!! I highly recommend Windy City Bedbug Specialists!!!
Excellent and honest service! These two gentlemen were very thorough, and saved us a lot of stress and money! I am so glad I went with them, and not the other services in the city! I highly recommend!
These guys are awesome!!! They made me feel at ease in a very stressful situation!! They are thorough and know their bugs!! Gave advice and tips, just a complete joy to do business with them! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!
I can't say enough of these two guys. Professional, Compassionate, Reasonably priced, Prompt…they are the Doctor’s of Bed Bugs!!! Thank goodness I didn't go with one of the big name pest control companies and decided that the best avenue was a company with one focus one specialty! You can't go wrong with the brothers.
I battled with bed bugs way too long in my condominium, I tried to self exterminate for six months. Got ripped off by another company. And it wasn't until I found these guys that my problems went away. Their warranty is longer than most other companies would give, and their customer service is excellent. They always got right back to me and had advice to give. I highly HIGHLY recommend them.
Incredible, and most of all: honest. Someone I work with had a bad case of bed bugs. After going on a 5-day out-of-state trip with them, I came back home - that week I found a bug on my couch. I looked online and it looked super similar to "bedbug" pictures on Google. I called in Windy City Bed Bug Specialists cause I'd heard that they were reliable and honest. They came right away and informed me that it actually was NOT a bed bug that I had found. They told me how to distinguish between different small bugs that look alike. It was really incredible. I was surprised by their honesty. Even though they stood to make hundreds and hundreds of dollars off me, they still told me the truth. Thanks! (plus, they were heart filled and funny)
I want to start by thanking the brothers of !!!!wcbbs!!!my experience with them was phenomenal!!👍🏻they answered all my questions about these little nasty vampires which are not pleasant at all. When they came out to perform their first service at my residence they came in like professionals ready to kick some vampires bugs but. After the first treatment they brought my wife back home because the minute we found out we had this intruders at home she freaked out and left home and went to her parents home to stay for a couple of days,And thanks guys for bringing her back home with a peace of mind,thanks to their analysis report they send you after the treatment,so far so good after the second treatment and people I recommend !!!!wcbbs!!!to the fullest thanks guys y'all the best!!!!!!!!! Keep up the good work.🔥🔥🔥🔥
These guys came all the way out to Aurora for me. Excellent customer service throughout the entire process, you can immediately tell they know there stuff about bed bugs. We had a high infestation taken care of in just 2 treatments. I cannot say enough good things, and would highly recommend them to anyone in need of bed bug removal. They now have a customer for life, thanks guys...
All I have to say is these guys are five stars all the way.
These guys are great and very professional. They are brothers, and own the company. You can really see that they care about fixing the bed bug issue. I would highly recommend them to anyone.
These guys are just plain out awesome people. You feel as if you have known them forever. They took care of my bed bug issue with 2 treatments, and they provide you with a 90day warranty. I have checked other companies and they usually only give a 30day warranty. I would highly recommend the brothers/owners to anyone. Thanks again guys!
Vladimir & George are the best @ what they do! Having a pest like this invade your home is totally Stressful & they were kind, compassionate, & caring. They did a Great Job & saved all my furniture! Their fee is totally reasonable & the level of service is Excellent! Windy City Bedbug Specialists are far above a 5 star rating!!!!!! I would Highly recommend them to everyone!!!
Bed Bug Treatment
Windy City Bed Bug Specialists are hands down, without a doubt, the best guys to call to eliminate a bed bug problem. As their ad says, this is all they do and you as the customer benefit from their expertise and focus. Whereas big name company exterminators have sales representatives who will "get back to you" and/or offer a sales pitch, Vlad and George are experts who promptly and personally contact you and provide a plan of action that works. Plus, on top of that, they are outstanding, fair, and friendly people to work with! They understand the problem - and the associated anxiety of the homeowner - so they are practiced and skilled in putting the homeowner at ease while they address and solve the problem! Given that they actually eradicate the pests so they are gone for good, their price is also the most competitive of anyone else out there. Considering all of this, there really are no other businesses to contact or consider. If you should ever encounter this pest nightmare - and I hope you never do - there is absolutely no one else to call than Vlad and George at Windy City Bed Bug Specialists! They are great! They are the best!

Windy City was great to deal with. They came out quickly to address our bed bug issue. They treated everything and put our minds at ease. They resolved our bed bug issue and we can rest easy. Thanks Vladimir and George!! They were on time and worked with our schedules. I would highly recommend them
Professional, High Quality Service
I am so pleased to be able to review Windy City Bed Bug Specialists. They serviced us professionally, thoroughly, and put our minds at ease. What we thought was a bed bug problem in only our condo unit turned out to be a building problem. They diagnosed the problem correctly and serviced three units in our building managing uncooperative neighbors in friendly and professional ways. I am so grateful for their good work. We have no more reports of bed bugs in our building thanks to them!
Outstanding! - Effective, Professional, Honest, and Courteous
These guys - Windy City Bed Bug Specialists - are the best!!!!!

I thank God for these guys. They are curtious, respectful, and gave me moral support when I was stressed out about those damn bed bugs. They know what they're doing. The bugs are gone Completely, because of these guys. I am so grateful, I now have a piece of mind & I have my bed back. No need to throw away your bed, they'll get rid of the bugs. I can't thank them enough!
Knowledgeable, Courteous, Professional, Efficient Vlad and George explained the process in great detail and answered all my questions. They put my mind to rest in an otherwise very stressful situation. And most of all they got the job done right. No more bugs. HURRAY! Thank you, guys! I highly recommend Windy City Bed Bug Specialists. 5 stars
This company is great!They came twice and my problem is gone.
Windy City Bed Bug Specialists were great!
Windy City Bed Bug Specialists were great! All they do is bed bugs so they really know what they're doing. We just had a very "light infestation" so their ability to come out right away before things got worse was wonderful. I had called someone else and they said I'd have to wait 4 days! No way! They took the a much dreaded situation and took care of it with professionalism!
Gross problem made much less traumatic
I unexpectedly encountered a bed bug problem and immediately FREAKED OUT. These guys returned my panicked phone call quickly and helped calm me down with their knowledge and "These things happen all the time" attitude. I called a few other companies but the plan of attack WCBBS developed seemed the most sensible. I did need 3 or 4 treatments, but 1) each visit was included in the original price 2) the guys were EXACTLY on time for each treatment 3) they sent me follow up reports and 4) promptly answered any questions I had after the treatments (and because I'm such a freak - I had many questions. All were answered promptly and courteously - are they also trained therapists?????). No doubt this is a disgusting and demoralizing issue, but these guys were top notch and helped me realize it's just a bug... Nothing more, nothing less.... Thank goodness bug can be exterminated and thank goodness for WCBBS.
I like most people would say I hated the fact of knowing I had bed bugs. I made the call to Windy City Bed Bug Specialists, and it was the best thing I could have done. These guys are Brothers and own the company. They really care about your needs and answered all the million questions I asked without getting frustrated with me. The attention to detail was great, because when I called a few days later, Vladimir instantly remember me. I would strongly recommend them to anyone dealing with bed bugs.
I began to receive these little bumps on my arms, so I went into the Dr. Office, they told me I had bed bugs. After searching for a company I came across Windy City Bed Bug Specialists, I seen that they had great reviews, and even a quick little video explaining the madness. I called and spoke with Vladimir, he is great, he explained in detail what would be performed , and even quoted my over the phone. Vladimir and his brother George both owners came out the next day and I couldn't be happier with there professional approach, and knowledge. I am bed bug free after just 2 treatments. I would highly recommend them to anyone.
I'm a very demanding consumer when it comes to, well, everything. These guys were professional, knowledgeable and made me feel confident they would be able to remedy the situation. They were able to eliminate the issue the first visit, but still did the follow up visit as it was part of the service. I lucked out as Windy City was the first pest control company I called. Wouldn't hesitate to contact them again or recommend to anyone needing these services.
Excellent But Expensive
We had no idea what we were dealing with. My daughter was waking up with what we thought were mosquito bites on her extremities. It took us a whole month to figure out what was going on. We called WCBB, they came out and we were bug free with only 2 treatments. Very kind, understanding, non judgmental and professional. We liked them, but honestly, we hope that we never need them again.
Bedbugs Be Gone!!
Discovered multiple sites of infestatuon and after checking Yelp, decided to give Vladimir a call. He came out the next day to inspect and begin treatment. Never having dealt with these little critters before, i was a bit freaked out. Vladimir answered all my questions throughout the entire process and never made me feel i was asking a "dumb" question. A week after the 1st treatment, he and George came back for the 2nd treatment. We've been bug free ever since. I highly recommend these guys. They couldnt have been nicer.
It was my first experience for any pest control and I found them through Groupon I called them and made an appointment to start the treatment ASAP...I'm very satisfy and recommend them to everyone
Professional, Friendly and Trustworty
I recently moved into a home that we were not aware had a bed bug infestation. After doing everything that you are not supposed to do once you realize you have a bed bug infestation (fog and spray bed bug spray that you've purchased from a local home depot store on every piece of furniture in your home), and noticing that I had even more bites than before, I decided to hire an exterminator. I put in a request online on the website for about 5 different exterminator companies. Vladmir gave me a call within 15 minutes of me putting in my request for a quote. Right away, I trusted Vladmir. He answered all of my questions quickly and correctly and I could tell that he knew what he was talking about. I spoke with other companies to see who my roommate and I would be the best fit for us and decided to go with Vladmir. Unlike other companies I reached out to, I felt that Vladmir wasn't just trying to sell services to us but genuinely cared to assist us. Everyone else had a wait time of about a week and Vladmir came out the very next day and even called saying that he was able to come out earlier. I appreciated that he was always available when I called him, he gave knowledgeable answers to all of my questions, he was honest and as nice as can be! I noticed the difference right away and would recommend him to anyone with a bed bug problem. This company specializes in one type of service, they are quick and efficient and they are genuine about their services. They understand how traumatic and nerve wrecking bed bugs can be and made a terrible experience much much better.
Prompt, Thorough, Patient, Friendly!
Vladimir is wonderful. Arrived when he said he would, thorough in his work, patient in that he answered our many questions, and friendly, to boot. Highly recommended.
Trustworthy, Reliable Service
I was horrified to find out from my neighbor that he had bed bugs and even more so to find out that other people in our condo building had them. We decided it would be best to have a professional inspection because we were having new furniture, including a new bed and box spring, delivered in a few days. We were almost certain we did not have any bed bugs, but wanted to be certain Vladimir from Windy City Bed Bud Specialists was great. He was able to get us in for an inspection the next day and he sent us an email to confirm. unfortunately, he did find a very low infestation of bugs and he did the service that day which was a great relief to us. Not only was Vladimir very professional and knowledgeable, but he was also very friendly and easy to talk to. I would highly recommend Windy City Bed Bud Specialists.
I had a very high infestation in my 3 bedroom home, it took a while for me to notice them because a first I did not receive any reactions to their bites. I then called Vladimir @ Windy City Bed Bug Specialists, and let me tell you this guy is awesome. He came out the next day and treated , but before he did anything he made sure to explain the entire process, and since we had a very high infestation that it will take a little longer than normal to eliminate them all. I can now say that after 4 treatments (which is covered under first payment) I am now bed bug free. It has been a long time since I have had a service from a company that is as caring as them. I would strongly recommend them to anyone looking for bed bug service.
Prompt, dependable service
Windy City Bed Bug Specialists were very prompt in responding to my inquiries. They were upfront about cost. I had an appointment within 24 hours. Very friendly service. We ended up with a false alarm, but we were grateful to have a professional opinion. If we ever have a concern again, we will definitely be employing their services.
I called Vladimir at 12:30pm when another company didn't show up.(Terminix) I wanted a consultation right away, I just couldn't wait another hour or day to find out what my worst night mare was. He was at my house at 1:15pm, 45 minutes later. He talked me through the process over the phone, while I was at work and meet my husband at home. He was professional, very thorough, knowledgeable and most of all very nice man to talk to. Lucky for us the infestation had just started in one bedroom and he took care of the entire house. as if they were all over. I would recommend Vladimir to anyone who thinks they might have critters.
High quality of services,very nice people they understand your situation and the most important not crazy prices

Love These Guys!
Vladimer and his partner were very professional. They got rid of the bed bugs with their first treatment and follow up. We had been fighting them for a couple of months, first with our do-it-yourself spray, then a different professional came and treated, but the bugs remained. So, when Windy City Pest Control came they put and end to our very long battle. Thank you!
very polite staff
Windy City staff was very professional , example the process to you in details. I call others specialist put Windy City was the best over all!!
The 2 owners of this business were extremely professional, timely, thorough and personable. They were knowledgeable about our bug problem and answered all of our questions patiently and in detail. I highly recommend them to potential customers looking for an extermination of pesky critters!
I received a very through and professional service. They were punctual ,informative along with making you comfortable under the circumstances.
After only one call to the guys I knew I found they right company. Not only did the walk me through a very hard time over the phone, but by the time we hung up I felt so much better about the terrible issue we had They came out the same day we talked, and had helped with moving anything I needed. Once they were ready to started I felt like I knew these guys for years and had all the confidence in them .All went very smooth they came back a week later to due a second treatment and to make sure I was feeling better. If anyone ever has to go through this trouble issue I could not say enough good things about this company or its staff. Trust me on this Audrey Colone
Above and beyond service and knowledge.
Amazing service. Had a problem with Bed Bugs and the team at Windy City Bed Bugs took complete care of all of my concerns. I really did not know where to turn. They explained every step and made me feel like they really cared. Cant say enough about this company. Highly recommend Windy City bed bugs and they have me as a customer for life. I will refer all of my friends and family to them.
Getting an appointment was easy and fast!! They worked around my busy schedule and were so pleasant and nice. All my questions were answered and better yet my problem solved. Thank you Windy City!!!!
I called out Windy City bed bug specialists to service my bed bug problem, and I can happily say that after just 2 treatments I am bed bug free. I would recommend them to anyone.
Where do I start?. I am amazed that a company like this still exists today. The brothers Vladimir & George treat you how you should be treated, this is by far the best service I have ever had from anyone. I was already freaked out because I had bed bugs, these guys put you at ease first, and then explain the entire process. I have not been bit since and they serviced my home over a month ago. I would highly recommend this company to anyone. Thanks again!
Vladimir and George could not have been more amazing throughout the entire process. We moved into an apartment that was infested with bed bugs in the walls but had no idea about it. We've moved out already since the landlords were not cooperative on having the entire duplex treated but Windy City Pest Control could not have been more incredible for clearing the issue within our specific apartment. They came the day I realized we had a problem and were so kind and thoughtful during the whole process. I was freaking out as I am a clean freak and terrified of bugs (and pregnant!) but they explained the entire process to me and even treated our apartment three times (though typically they do two treatments) because we were moving and wanted to make sure the bed bugs didn't follow us. They literally were at my beckon call and understood how important it was for us to be bed bug-free before we moved out of that horrible apartment situation. I would recommend them to anyone - They have fair prices, they will answer all your questions (I called 4 times and Vladimir was kind and patient with me with each call), and they resolved our issue within 2 weeks. I am beyond grateful for them and the way they handled our problem. DO NOT HESITATE TO CALL THEM - LITERALLY THEY ARE THE BEST!
