Reasons to Treat Bed Bugs with Heat

Reasons to Treat Bed Bugs with Heat

Bed bug infestations can be difficult to combat, and often require a professional extermination. There are two basic methods of extermination: chemicals or heat.

Chemical treatments are problematic for a number of reasons, the fist being that they may not kill bed bugs, at all. Years of pesticide use has made bed bugs incredibly resistant to chemical treatments. Recent research has shown that some bed bugs can survive more than 1,000 times the amount of pesticide considered lethal just 10 years ago.

There’s no such thing as a heat-resistant bed bug, however. These pests can’t survive temperatures above 122°. Our treatment raises temperatures in your home up to 185° for a period of six to eight hours, ensuring that our treatment is almost always 100% effective.
