No one wants to think about the prospect of a bed bug invasion. They’re creepy. They’re crawly, and they’ll bite you while you sleep. Is there anything worse than the thought of a bug crawling around on you while you sleep? Bedbugs have, once again, become one of the largest pest control problems, and they’re tough to control. Wondering what you can do? Bed bug heat treatments are one of the best options.

How do Heat Treatments Work?

heat-treatment-bed-bugThere aren’t a lot of pesticide solutions that work for bedbugs. While there are a few out there, not everyone is willing to use them, given that they’re likely to be sleeping in the same area where the chemicals were placed. There is a non-chemical option – temperature control. Both very high and very low temperatures will get rid of bed bugs and their eggs. Not all of the extreme temperature measures, though, are equally effective. They have to be safe, have the ability to penetrate every crack and crevice, and keep your furniture and the structure of your home intact at the same time.

It starts when we identify what part of your home needs bed bug heat treatments. We can treat just one part of your house or the whole thing. Then we’ll use our heat system to pump hot air to that area, constantly measuring the temperature inside to make certain it reaches the right levels to kill all of the living bed bugs and their eggs. One the right temperature is reached, it will be maintained for a certain period of time until we’re certain the bed bugs are gone.

The best part about heat treatments is that there are no residual effects to deal with. Within just a few hours from the start of treatment, you can go back into your home safely.
