Reclaiming Your Bedroom with the 5 Best Bed Bug Exterminators in Auckland 

Reclaiming Your Bedroom with the 5 Best Bed Bug Exterminators in Auckland
We extensively test and research all services we review. Here's why you can trust us.

Not too long ago, I had an invasion in my home. Instead of the sweet embrace of sleep, I had to experience ignominous surrender in the face of those disgusting little vampires of the bedroom – bed bugs! 

After countless sleepless nights, desperate Google searches on remedies, and an impressive collection of insect bites that made me look like a part-time beekeeper, I decided enough was enough. 

I called in the professionals to wage a full-on war on the darn things. I reclaimed my territory, but ever since, I’ve had increased sympathy for others facing the same problem.

So, to help you out, I’ll share the list of bug exterminators in Auckland that I worked from when I was choosing a team to lead my revenge battles against these bugs. Let’s check out each company and see which one might fit your case! 

How much does it cost to hire a bed bug exterminator in Auckland?

For bed bug extermination in Auckland, expect to spend at least $300 for one bedroom. Remember that depending on the company, there may be a discounted price for more than one room. This price is just an estimate and will vary depending on your chosen company. 

How I Chose

Word on the Street: Nothing speaks louder than a customer who’s either had their faith restored in peaceful sleep or is plotting revenge for shoddy service. I spoke with customers who used these exterminators and scoured social media groups to get the lowdown on who’s hot and who’s not in the bug-zapping business. 
Pest Control Arsenal: Not all bed bug exterminators are created equal. I checked what weapons each company had in its anti-bedbug arsenal. I wasn’t looking for someone who’d just sprinkle some chemicals and call it a day—I looked for the latest bug-blasting tech. 
Guarantee: I focused on exterminators who offered good guarantees. If an exterminator put their money where their mouth is and promised to annihilate all bed bugs (or return for free if even one survives), they went into my good books. 
Price: I balanced the exterminators’ prices against their reputation and the services offered.

1. Bug King Auckland

Operating Hours: Monday to Saturday – 7 AM to 7 PM 

Website:  Bug King Auckland 

I reached out to Bug King after hearing many positive reviews from their clients. Their team specialises in bed bug removal, and their expertise shines through in their approach. 

When I used them, they thoroughly inspected, vacuumed and used a residual spray that finally rid me of those pests. Their other customers, whom I spoke with, liked how they took the time to explain everything and followed up to ensure the treatment was successful. 

However, a few people had less glowing experiences. Some related to me that while the process was effective, scheduling a follow-up visit took longer than expected. 

Others added that their services were a bit pricey. But I considered their discounted rate for more than one room and six month warranty. So, they still earned a place on my list. 

Pros

  • Effective treatment
  • Discounts for more than 1 room
  • Six-month warranty

Cons

  • Scheduling delays
  • Slightly pricey

Customer Reviews

Overall a great experience and we are now bug free

“Our Bug King technician was very friendly and professional. He first did an inspection of our house and property to see if there were any other issues we were not aware of. He gave us a full run down of the treatment and then what was required once he was finished. He also gave a lot of advice about how to combat ants etc in the future. He arrived on time and did the job in the time they gave us when booking the appointment. Overall a great experience and we are now bug free.”

It has certainly made a difference already

“Prompt and informative communication from the get go. Follow up leading up to the appointment was great, and the technician on the day was friendly and polite. It’s been a week since our indoor and outdoor ant treatment, and it has certainly made a difference already!”

2. Aces Pest Control

Address: 17 Rawene Road, Birkenhead, Auckland 0626, New Zealand

Contact Details: +6493021984

Operating Hours: Monday to Friday – 8 AM to 5 PM

Website: Pest Control Auckland

From what I’ve heard and from speaking with the crew at Aces Pest Control, they get the job done right before you even miss your bed. 

They have a variety of treatments they use here. Besides the classic spot vacuuming, they use safe heat, encasement, and traps. I also noted that they use chemicals, but as a last resort. 

They even gave me some tips on how to keep the little critters away. Among the customers I spoke to, Aces’ professional approach truly stood out. 

Some clients shared with me that they liked how Aces’ team was punctual, and thanks to their encasement treatment, they haven’t seen a single bed bug since. 

However, others mentioned that the treatment didn’t work right away. And others added that their communication could be a bit better; there were a few mix-ups. 

Pros

  • Various treatment options
  • Helpful tips
  • Professional and punctual team

Cons

  • Treatment may not be immediate
  • Communication could be improved

Customer Reviews

Properties have been bug free for 12 months

“Owen is always my first call for any pest issues as the service is efficient and effective. He is very knowledgeable on everything pest control. I highly recommend getting properties regularly sprayed to avoid having bugs inside. The chemicals haven’t been irritating like other companies, and the properties have been bug free for 12 months.”

Jennifer Henley, Google Reviews

No after smell or anything 

“highly recommend ACES pest control service for pre move-in pest control. Fast and professional service. No after smell or anything so I was skeptical about it but bugs were found dead after they come in so it’s a good feeling that my house is pest proof!”

Contact Details: +64 800 663 597

Operating Hours:

  • Monday to Friday – 7 AM to 7 PM 
  • Saturday – 8 AM to 3 PM 

Website: World Class Pest Control

World Class Pest Control lives up to its name with a focus on customer satisfaction—at least that’s what I gleaned from those I spoke with. 

From my conversations with their clients, several praised their quick response time. Others told me they provided a free quote and were at their houses the very next day. 

Speaking with them myself on the phone, I liked their environmentally friendly treatment options. BTW, they also do commercial bed bug extermination (hotels, etc.) with a four-month warranty. 

On the downside, a few pointed out that while the service was quick, they wish they had spent more time explaining the process.

Pros

  • Quick response
  • Free quotes
  • Eco-friendly options
  • Commercial services
  • Four-month warranty 

Cons

  • Could explain process better

Customer Reviews

We’ll definitely use this company again

“James was very friendly and prompt to help us. His solution has been very successful,  much sooner than expected, and his prices were lower than the competitors’. We’ll definitely use this company again,  if required.”

Cassie Raford, Google Reviews

These guys are awesome to deal with

“This is the third time I’ve used this company and each time I’ve dealt with James.  I’m super impressed with this company as each time James has called me and clearly explained the process and Cleary set our expectations.  These guys are awesome to deal with and faultless to be honest.  People love to complain but forget to compliment for a job well done.”

4. PCS Pest Control

Address: 2 Victoria Avenue, Remuera, Auckland 1050, New Zealand

Contact Details: +64 800 030 974

Operating Hours: Monday to Sunday – 7 AM to 7 PM 

Website: PCS Pest Control 

With over 50 years in the business, PCS Pest Control is a name many trust, and it shows in their service. When I mentioned my bug troubles on the phone, they were super kind and had plenty of helpful prevention tips for me.

But I wasn’t the only one who felt the sincerity in their attitude. A few of their long-time clients told me that PCS has been their go-to for any pest issues for this exact reason.

Aside from that, their bed bug treatment was especially thorough and effective. Others stated that the minimal disruption to their home was a huge plus for them too. And their team worked around their available times!

On the other hand, some felt that their methods were a bit old-fashioned and that it was hard to book with them. But that could be because they’re trusted exterminators. 

Pros

  • Trusted reputation
  • Thorough treatment
  • Minimal disruption

Cons

  • Old-fashioned methods
  • Difficult booking

Customer Reviews

Jeremy and his team are professional, friendly, always on time

“We have used PCS twice now and will continue to use them in future, Jeremy and his team are professional, friendly, always on time, always quick to respond to any questions I have and the products used are highly effective. Don’t waste time and money trying to DIY leave it to the professionals.”

Brigitte Moore, Google Reviews

No one comes close to PCS’s reliability

“Jeremy and the PCS crew know what they’re doing. I’ve used a couple of other companies prior to these guys, including the big name ones… no one comes close to PCS’s reliability, customer service and just straight up keeping our commercial kitchen pest free. Couldn’t recommend them higher.”

5. NZ Pest Control

Contact Details: +64 800 227 799

Operating Hours: Monday to Friday – 9 AM to 5PM

Website: NZ Pest Control

NZ Pest Control offers extensive pest control solutions, and plenty of the people I spoke to sang praises for them. 

A few of their customers remarked that their thorough inspection caught bed bugs they never would have known were there. 

Others raved about their customised treatment plan to follow up bimonthly. And I noted, after speaking with one of their reps, that their service extends to commercial properties. 

Still, they won’t start any of the bed bug treatment if you don’t do the prep work. You’ll have to vacuum your bed yourself before they show up, and have small items removed from the bedroom. 

Still, despite the positives, some clients felt there was room for improvement. A few mentioned that the initial assessment was great, but the actual treatment took longer than anticipated. 

And some thought their treatments could benefit from being more eco-friendly.

Pros

  • Thorough inspections
  • Customized plans
  • Commercial service

Cons

  • Long treatment time
  • Not so eco-friendly
  • Requires prep work beforehand

Customer Reviews

Punctual, made sure everything that needed to be protected was well covered

“I had NZ Pest Control out to do a yearly spray for flies, spiders, and bush cockroaches and they were great! Punctual, made sure everything that needed to be protected was well covered before they started, and let me know when they left so I could air out the house. We used to get cockroaches daily during the summer, but since we started preventative spraying we’ve only had maybe one a month and it’s usually dead.”

Deanna Wells, Google Reviews

I’m impressed with the affordability, level of service

“I’ve been using this service for the past 5 years and each year I’m impressed with the affordability, level of service, the quality of the job done and the professionalism and punctuality of the Service persons who helps with the job. Haupini did the fantastic job at my place yesterday, and my house is free of those pesky flies, spiders and cockroaches…Highly recommended. Cheers, Asha Sharma”
