Bed Bug Thermal Heat Treatment
Bed bug infestations are among some of the most to fully eradicate, which is mainly due to social behaviors. The bed bug lives and travels in groups (colonies) with varying populations.
Our conventional pest control treatments utilize pesticides – organic, natural, and chemical-based – to eradicate pest infestations of all severity levels. When conventional pest control is not an option, thermal heat treatment becomes the best alternative.
How Does Thermal Heat Treatment Eradicate Bed Bug Infestations?
Heat is generated by large heaters that are forced into the impacted home utilizing fans and flex duct. We utilize temperatures over 100 degrees Fahrenheit to target bed bugs in all phases of the life cycle. Thermal heat has proven to be one of the most effective pest control weapons against bed bug infestations.
Fans push the heat into the impacted home, directed at problem areas like bedrooms and nurseries. Heat penetrates crevices, cracks, and other difficult-to-reach areas until reaching its destination, where the bed bug is hanging out.
Thermal heat is targeted at 140 degrees Fahrenheit or higher to deliver immediate results. Bed bugs cannot survive in temperatures this high, which is why heat is a great extermination alternative to conventional and eco-friendly pest management services.
Is Heat The Most Effective Bed Bug Treatment?
Heat is one of the three most effective bed bugs treatments. Cryonite and steam are believed to be as or more effective than heat. All three of these treatments are effective in minimizing the bed bug population in homes and businesses.
Eradicating bed bugs with thermal heat almost always works because of its penetrating capability. Our exterminators utilize equipment to direct heat in areas where bed bugs are believed to be living. It can take up to 15 minutes to eradicate bed bugs with thermal heat.
Monitoring Bed Bug Thermal Heat Progress ?
Exterminators cannot safely approach a bed bug infestation with thermal heat without thinking about the potential consequences. Our thermal heat bed bug treatment combines two visual inspects with a single treatment to determine effectiveness.
Bed bug-ridden areas are exposed to 140+ degrees Fahrenheit heat to ensure the maximum results. Once the treatment is complete, the exterminator conducts a visual inspection to determine if the bed bug status.
Does Thermal Heat Bed Bug Treatment Require Pre-Treatment Evacuation?
As mentioned previously, bed bugs cannot survive in 140-degree Fahrenheit for more than 15 minutes in most cases. To protect our customers from the risk of thermal heat pest control, the home must be completely vacated before our exterminators and technicians are permitted to render the area. With this said, humans may not be able to survive in thermal heat environments.
While thermal heat bed bug control appears to be harmless, long-term exposure poses some potential health risks, including exhaustion, cramps, stroke, and death. This is only why we believe working in an occupied home is not ideal for thermal heat bed bug treatment.
We will give you plenty of time to vacate your home before the installation of our thermal heat treatment. We have successfully treated hundreds and homes and businesses in Honolulu with thermal heat.
