Why heat treatment over chemical options?
The most effective means of controlling and eliminating bed bugs is thermal treatment. Specialized equipment is used by trained professionals to safely increase the temperature of an infested area to level high enough (around 135 degrees) for extended periods of time which not only kill bed bugs, but their eggs as well. It is 100% chemical free meaning there will be no toxic residue left behind and no worries about what your family and pets may be exposed to. Thermal treatments also help kill bed bugs which may be in wall voids and areas difficult or impossible to access with chemical treatments. Bed bugs have shown to develop tolerances to certain chemicals and chemical families which allows them to survive even direct contact with many chemical treatment options (especially pyrethroids). This has forced applicators to use more toxic products in an attempt to find an effective solution. Many areas such as drawers, pantries, storage areas, inside of mattresses and box springs as well as furniture are difficult if not impossible to treat with chemical sprays. Missing a single location where bed bugs harbor can mean reinfestation in a short period of time. Thermal treatments are simply more thorough.
