Heat treatments for bed bugs are an eco-friendly, single session treatment method to effectively eradicate all stages of these insects from eggs to adults, including eggs laid by females.
Professional-grade equipment used during this treatment heats the area to 120 degrees Fahrenheit or above, rendering any bugs present unable to survive and reaching all those hard-to-reach spots that traditional chemical pesticides simply can’t.
No More Unwanted House Guests
Bed bugs have long been known for being difficult to eliminate, with many having developed resistance to traditional pesticides over time. Homeowners and exterminators alike must constantly look for effective means of getting rid of bed bugs – heat treatment provides one such effective method.
Properly executed heat treatment eliminates all bed bugs in an area by killing adult insects, nymphs and eggs in one hit. Furthermore, heat reaches all hard-to-reach places such as cracks and crevices where these bugs hide out.
Only drawback to this method is its high temperatures can damage certain materials – for instance plastic TV stands can melt while wall framed pictures may crack under pressure.
To prevent such damages, it’s crucial to prepare both your home and belongings correctly for heat treatment. This means removing clutter, placing all non-perishable food items into garbage bags and moving any movable objects away from walls. Furthermore, professional services should be contacted as soon as you suspect bed bug infestation in order to keep the issue from worsening further.
No Chemical Residue
Bed bug heat treatment differs from both over-the-counter and professional chemical solutions in that there are no lingering chemicals to pose additional health concerns for you and your family, with no harsh odors making this method more tolerable to use in your home.
However, in order to be effective you will need to prepare your home. Remove items that can be damaged by high temperatures such as electronics, oil paintings and delicate fabrics before calling a pest control operative who can offer guidance as to what you should do with them before the heat arrives.
Additionally, to facilitate faster decontamination you should move furniture four inches from walls in order to allow hot air to reach all areas of the room and enable rapid decontamination. By hiring an experienced pest control company with this method you will ensure your house is treated thoroughly and your life free from irritating creatures like termites.
No More Stress
Heat treatment not only gets rid of bed bugs themselves, but it also destroys germs and bacteria carried by these pests – another advantage over chemical solutions that leave behind residues. Many people choose it over chemical remedies which leave behind unsightly residues.
Professional heat treatments use specialized heaters that gradually raise the temperature in your home over 130 degrees Fahrenheit – this temperature kills all stages of bed bugs including eggs. This process usually takes less than one day and is powered by one generator.
While professional heat treatments are more effective than washing or laundring methods, they can be costly. When executed properly however, their success rate is 100%; to increase its success further you should prepare your home properly by removing items such as houseplants, food, soap, candles and electronics that can’t withstand high heat levels – speak to a pest control operative about more ways of prepping for heat treatments in your area!
No More Damage
Heat treatment is one of the only effective strategies that will completely eradicate a bed bug infestation without chemical use, by raising temperatures so high that all life stages of bed bugs are instantly exterminated.
Before initiating any heat treatment in any space or house, however, preparation is crucial as high temperatures may damage plastics and leather imitation furniture as well as candles and electronics of various sorts that could easily melt at these levels.
To combat this, it is wise to clear away any clutter from the room or house before initiating heat treatment. Doing so will ensure that high levels of temperature are evenly distributed throughout the space while eliminating areas where bed bugs could hide.
