Bed Bug Heat Remediation

 

Heat Remediation

Heat treatments effectively eliminate bed bugs at all stages of their life cycle. It is a good choice when results are needed quickly or when a chemical-free solution is desired. During the heating process, temperatures will be raised to 120-140 degrees, which is lethal to bed bugs. For added protection, a conventional treatment is applied.

Advantages:

 

  • Eliminates all stages from egg to adult
  • Achieves results in a single treatment
  • Eliminates bed bugs that are resistant to chemical treatment
  • Non-chemical and non-toxic

 

Disadvantages:

 

  • Residents must vacate the area, for about 6-12 hours, during treatment
  • Higher cost than traditional treatment

 

Recommended For:

 

  • Infestations are heavy and/or are in unconventional places such as computers
  • Situations when results are needed quickly
  • Small areas, including apartments, dorm rooms, condos and small homes
