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.

Bed Bug Diseases, Hiding Spots, and Movement

The good news  about Bed Bugs is that they do not transmit any human diseases, but have been known to carry up to 32 diseases, with SARS being the newest and most dangerous Bed Bug Scare.  Bedbugs are known to crawl quite a distance at nighttime in search of food, but they do not fly. According to the CDC, they can travel more than 100 feet in a night looking for food, following Heat and CO2 from humans.  But they tend to live within 6- 8 feet of their food source, where people sleep  .Bed Bugs are in Hiding their whole life,  unless Breeding or feeding.  In some instance they are sick and dieing that is why you see them during day light.  Their favorite places to hide are usually mattress seams, headboards, inside box springs, couches, wooden bed frames, furniture (nightstands, dressers, chairs), and photo frames are common hiding areas for bedbugs during the day time. But they can also hide under electrical plates, TV’s, baseboards, around door and window casings, stereo speakers, curtain folds, and so on.  Bed Bugs love all electrical devices because it provides the optimal temperatures and hiding spots.  Electrical devices can not be treated with pesticides because of damage that will be caused, making Heat the Best way to treat all electrical devices.

How Bed Bug Bite Reactions Differ

Bed bugs affect people in a number of ways, but perhaps the most important are various skin reactions and allergic reactions. True allergic reactions are rare from bed bug bites, and anaphylactic shock is even rarer; however, people often claim that severe bite reactions are allergic (but sometimes this is not the case). The presence of itchy, red bumps, and even blood blisters, are more common. This brief article attempts to classify in laymen’s terms the various reactions resulting from bed bug bites. Actually, the most common response to a bed bug bite appears to be no skin reaction at all, with a barely visible tiny hole (punctum) at the location of the bite. Research studies have shown that anywhere from 30 to 60 percent of people bitten by bed bugs have no reaction whatsoever. Common skin reactions for which medical attention is sought are usually 2- to 5-mm itchy red spots at bed bug feeding sites, one per insect. These usually itch, and if not abraded, resolve within a week or so. The size and itchiness associated with these common reactions may increase in some individuals who experience repeated bites. I have known several people who said bed bug bite reactions are extremely itchy. Complex Skin Reactions. Some patients may experience complex skin reactions. Reports of these have included itchy wheals (local urticarial or hives) around a central punctum, itchy small red bumps, or diffuse hives at bite sites usually noted or arising in the morning. Blister-like rashes may occur upon new biting events days later. In some cases, these reactions evolve into itchy papules or nodules (hard bumps) that when scratched may become infected (impetiginous) and persist for weeks. These “secondary infections” from scratching bed bug bites can become quite serious and require medical care. The timing of cutaneous reactions to bed bugs may change with multiple exposures. This appears to reflect host immunological responses to the proteins in bed bug saliva. In other words, the person is becoming more sensitized to the bites each time. One of the original bed bug researchers, Robert Usinger, fed a colony of bed bugs on himself weekly for seven years and noted that his reactions progressed from delayed to immediate,...
