There is no question that the best process for eliminating bed bugs is through high heat treatment. Successfully getting rid of bed bugs relies on a few factors such as early detection, proper preparation and correct treatment methods. In fact, many bed bug infestations occur within a few inches or feet of their food source (humans), like near a bed or other close furniture.
Because of their small size, they can hide in any crevice. As a result, these pests can be very difficult to get rid of. That is why it is ideal to contact a professional bed bug company before the problem worsens. However in order to get the best results you’ll need to inform yourself on the treatment and process.
What is A Heat Treatment?
Bed bugs die when exposed to high temperatures for an extended period. If performed properly, heat treatment for bed bugs can be a highly effective procedure.
We seal the home (sectional) and use our commercial grade heaters to raise the internal temperature to between 135-145 degrees. This is hot enough to destroy all bed bugs and their eggs, yet not enough to destroy your property or electronics. Guaranteeing your safety.
When heat is applied this way, it penetrates walls and crevices where we are unable to reach with traditional pesticides. Heat treatments have a nearly perfect effectiveness rate.
Heat treatment is 100% non-toxic and most of the time will not require you to throw out your mattresses or any other furniture.
Best Bed Bug Treatment
Over the last decade, heat treatments have become the preferred method of bedbug removal with pest control experts. This is because pest control technicians can carefully identify the infestation closely over specific time farm when visiting your home or business to completely remove bedbugs. At that time, no chemicals will be applied, and more importantly, heat is the only method known to destroy bedbug eggs. No pesticide on the market can penetrate eggs, which means if you don’t use heat, the struggle to control these pests will continue after an initial treatment.
Even if they’re hiding in cracks and holes, it will reach and kill them. Heat slips through all cracks and crevices so bedbugs cannot find a place to hide. Our heat treatments work by increasing the temperature slowly in the home to 140-degrees or higher.
Bedbugs can come from almost anywhere; traveling, work, visits, commute etc. Stop stressing about how and where you got them and start planning on getting rid of them. Our experienced and well-trained technicians, all with countless hours of training and on-site experience, guarantee you the most accurate and efficient inspection available.
Heat Treatment Preparation
Like anything preparation is key, especially when it comes to setting up for a bedbug heat treatment. If done correctly you will never have to worry about these critters again.
The majority of items in your home can handle the temperature of a bedbug heat treatment. However, Before the heat treatment begins, talk to your bed bug control professional to figure out what items can stay put throughout the process. Vulnerable items can be left outside the home for the duration of the treatment. Let your bed bug control professional know about these items, as they may need to inspect and treat them separately to ensure you don’t reintroduce bed bugs into your home.
This will all be further explained to you in detail with a complete list of thorough directions so that there isn’t any confusion.
