Heat Treament for Bed Bugs

Why Heat Treatment for Bed Bugs are so effective: Bed bugs infestations are the hardest pest to exterminate and one of the worst infestations that your family could have. Many Bedbug Exterminators use only chemicals that are expensive and don’t work well. Bed bug bites are irritating and even can be dangerous. They can also be difficult to treat because they are so difficult to find and have a super high resistance to pesticdes. Bed bugs like to hide in unseen spots- like the seams of chairs and couches, between cushions, in the folds of curtains, in bed frames and box springs. They are also known to hide in drawer joints, electrical receptacles and appliances, under loose wall paper and wall hangings, and in corners of rooms. Most chemical treatments need to be applied in direct contact with bed bugs to kill them. Also, most pesticides in chemical treatments cannot kill bed bug eggs effectively and sometimes can not kill bedbugs either, and that is why many pest control companies that use pesticide to treat bed bugs have to come back every few weeks to re-apply pesticides. And who wants harmful pesticides in your house? Our Heat Treatment method by your Heat Treatment Expert, is the most effective way to treat bed bugs. We use electric heat, to heat the house to 135 degrees for hours. We use fans to make the house like a convection oven to get Heat into all the crevices that bed bugs hide in.

In many situations heat is the best bed bug control option, but these treatments require specialized equipment, and a highly trained technician.

By Eric J. Braun | March 24, 2014 Bed bugs have long been a part of our world. One theory is that they emerged in prehistoric times, living in caves with our primitive ancestors, and then followed humans into man-made structures all over the world. In our era, bed bugs became a concern about 10 years ago as tourists staying at East Coast hotels began reporting bites. Because bed bugs are efficient “hitch- hikers,” these infested travelers inadvertently carried bed bugs to other hotels as well as into their homes. Today, there are reports of bed bugs on the East and West Coasts in America, and they are becoming more prominent in the Midwest. According to 2010 research conducted by the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) and the University of Kentucky, 95 percent of pest control companies reported encountering a bed bug infestation in the prior year. By contrast, before 2000, only 25 percent of pest control companies surveyed had encountered a bed bug infestation. Recently, the rate of increase in the spread of bed bugs has slowed. This is most likely due to an increased public awareness and the development of more effective control methods. However, the battle is ongoing because many strains of bed bugs have demonstrated a resistance to pesticides. Identifying an Infestation. While clutter in a room can provide bed bugs with safe and cozy hiding places, the cleanliness of a site has nothing to do with acquiring an infestation. Bed bugs feed primarily on blood and emerge from hiding places, usually at night, drawn out by body heat and by the CO2 we exhale. To date, they have not been shown to transmit disease, but can bite several times in one location and leave saliva in the wounds, which can cause raised welts that resemble mosquito bites or hives. Needless to say, these bites are at least uncomfortable, and the presence of bed bugs can psychologically impact people. Bed bugs typically are found in areas where humans have spent some time sleeping. Such areas might include the seams of mattresses, in box springs, headboards and in the tiny cracks of bed frames. They may also find harborage in the upholstery of chairs and other...
