Kill bedbugs without chemicals
Bedbugs can’t be controlled with do-it-yourself treatments. Home and business owners should work with a pest control specialist to eliminate these pests. Using heat is a superior solution to eliminate bedbug infestations. This non-chemical, non-toxic approach penetrates wall cavities, mattresses and other hard-to-reach locations to kill bedbugs. By applying heat evenly throughout a structure, we are able to kill bedbugs wherever they are hiding, something many other treatments cannot achieve in a single treatment.
- More effective at bedbug extermination.
- Works without chemicals and without endangering people, pets or food.
- Disinfects as it depopulates bedbugs and microorganisms.
- Destroys allergens caused by bedbugs and other pests to improve indoor air quality.
- Tenants and homeowners can move back in within 4 to 24 hours from the start of treatment.
How does heat get rid of bedbugs?
Bedbugs cannot survive in temperatures above 113°F. Heat treatment warms up a structure’s interior to between 135°F and 150°F degrees for the relatively short time it takes to exterminate bedbugs, including those in tiny crevices. Heat treatment will kill all of the growth stages of the bedbug, including the eggs. This is an important fact given that not all current pesticide control methodologies kill bedbug eggs. This means that oftentimes heat treatment can eradicate the entire bedbug population in a single treatment.
There is considerable documentation citing the temperature and time correlations necessary to kill bedbugs and their eggs. Several sources (Usinger 1966, Gulmahamad 2002, Quarles 2007) report that adults and nymphs die within 15 minutes at temperatures greater than 113ºF, and eggs die within 60 minutes. Raising room temperatures above the thermal death point and maintaining that temperature for several hours normally eliminate a bedbug infestation.
The temperature required to kill bedbugs and their eggs falls well within the temperature ranges achieved by our heat treatment. The low thermal death point of bedbugs allows our technicians to better adapt the process to the building and its contents while still achieving success.
Unlike many pesticides, heat treatment will penetrate into all of the cracks and crevices and kill bedbugs where they reside. Our process will force heat into beds, bedding, mattresses, furniture, electronics, wall cavities, etc., leaving no place for bedbugs to hide. This is important because adult bedbugs have been shown to live up to a year on a single blood meal, and may simply go to a small, dark space away from mattresses to live and reproduce.
