Why Heat Treatment Is The Most Effective Way To Kill Bed Bugs

One of the major issues in conventional methods for eliminating bed bugs is their capacity to return to infest homes and apartments. Bed bugs can be able to hide in small spaces, like electrical outlets. 

They are able to spread rapidly through entire apartments or homes, which makes them extremely difficult to eliminate in treatment. This could result in repeated treatments using pesticides, which is costing a lot of money and are not recommended for people with pets or families. You need to hire pest control services for better results.

However, full structure treatment with heat is a quick and safe method to eliminate bed bug infestations in one treatment. Because all they need is heat, there are no harmful chemicals within your home, and there is no requirement to leave the residence for a while after the treatment has been applied.

It also lets you save all your belongings including upholstered furniture and mattresses that are easily cleaned with heating.

How it works

The heat treatment raises temperatures to 140F for 3 to 6 hours. The death temperature of bed bugs at every stage of life is 120F. This makes it highly effective in killing bed bugs, eggs, nymphs, and adults. The treatment can be performed either by trained professionals or by DIY. 

For all-encompassing treatments, an expert pest management firm is highly recommended.
