Benefits of Heat Treatment For Bed Bugs

Using heat to kill insects is a method that provides numerous advantages over alternative pest control methods to both pest control operators and the occupants of the facility being treated.

Benefits of Heat TreatmentNON-CHEMICAL

Heat treatments will not lead to any long-term health side effects of exposed individuals; chemicals can be toxic if not properly ventilated before re-occupancy or if proper procedures are not followed. Fumigation using methyl bromide or other pesticides can lead to the depletion of the ozone layer.

Heat treatments are performed only a single time, for low to mid-level infestations, to effectively kill all insect life stages from egg to adult whereas chemicals typically require multiple treatments over an extended time period.

Heaters are able to penetrate areas that are difficult to reach with pesticides or other chemicals. This concept is important as insects are known to hide in small cracks and crevices which could result in re-infestation.

Untreated areas of a structure may remain operational during this non-toxic treatment meaning the entire site does not need to be evacuated in order for the treatment to occur.

Benefits of Heat TreatmentDAMAGE FREE
The proper, even application of heat will not result in the damage of interior space contents. It is safe to leave potentially infested electronics and other contents in the space being heated as long as they are unplugged. A list of heat sensitive items to remove prior to treatment is provided to customers.

Wireless sensors and computers are used to remotely track temperatures in various areas throughout the space being treated. A detailed report is generated at the conclusion of the treatment.
