Not every company uses the same equipment. What type of heat system is best?
The Most Effective Method to Kill Bed Bugs
When the heat rises, bed bugs become active and emerge from the cracks/crevices where they hide. They thrive around 30-35 degrees Celsius. Once at lethal temperatures (minimum 50 degrees), all the bed bugs die and have nowhere to escape. Bed Bug eggs cannot survive these temperatures as well.
Bed Bug Heat Treatment Toronto
Bed Bugs die almost immediately at 50 degrees Celsius. Our bed bug exterminators get the entire ambient temperature up to 65 degrees. Once at temperature, everything, including furniture and personal belongings, is moved around. It’s essential to eliminate all cold spots for no possibility of bed bug survival. Having a thorough heat treatment is why we are the best.
Our bed bug heat treatment is designed to kill every bed bug in a single day. We essentially hot box the entire house for several hours. We heat the entire house in order to offer a guarantee. We do not perform single room heat treatments.
Does Our Extermination Service Prevent Re-Infestation?
After the bed bug heat treatment, we cool everything down and follow up with an Aprehend residual spray. Aprehend is a non-toxic bio-pesticide spray. The spray contains fungal spores that germinate within 20 hours of contact and then penetrate the cuticle of the bed bug and colonize inside, resulting in death.
It’s a safe, non-toxic treatment residual that lasts up to three months on a single spray. Aprehend is the perfect residual protection from re-infestation, especially in apartments. Aprehend leaves no stains or smell, and re-entry can happen once it’s dried an hour later. The formula does not have any dangerous chemicals, unlike most spray options. It’s not like the pesticide treatments that use toxic chemicals. Aprehend is not harmful to pets and elderly people.
Some clients may only want an Aprehend treatment to help with bed bug control. For a more affordable bed bug treatment, we recommend an Aprehend spray to bring down the bed bug population. Only a licensed pest control company can legally purchase and apply this product.
Our Bed Bug Heat Treatment Is Discreet
Our bed bug extermination services are discreet. We do not tell neighbours and the public what we are doing. There are no logos or decals on our uniforms or vehicles. Our heaters recirculate the hot air within the treatment space out of sight.
Bed Bug K-9 Inspections
Bed bugs cannot always be seen with the naked eye. Their thin bodies can hide in cracks inaccessible to us. We have a couple of professionally trained and certified beagles to smell them out.
Our professional pest control services include a K-9 bed bug inspection that allows us to determine with a high degree of certainty whether or not there are bed bugs in a residential or commercial property.
A K-9 bed bug inspection is for anyone who thinks they may have bed bugs but are unsure. Using these highly trained dogs is the best way to detect bed bugs by their live scent.
If we find evidence and you choose us for a bed bug heat treatment, the k9 fee will be waived. We do not offer a free bed bug inspection where we attempt to search for them visually. If you have already seen a bed bug, a K9 inspection is not needed.
An Affordable Bed Bug Heat Treatment
A Heat treatment is the only method that can kill an entire bed bug infestation in one conventional bed bug treatment session.
Heat Treatment Preparation
We can’t treat everything. Heat-sensitive items like plants or perishable food cannot be in the heat. Candles will also melt. Bedding and clothing need to be prepared as well. We send a checklist beforehand that’s easy to follow. If you miss any flammable items, it’s okay. We make sure to inspect the house before we turn on the heat.
It’s harder to kill bed bugs when the space is not prepared. We may reschedule the bed bug heat treatment if we see no there was no effort to prepare.
Bed Bug Removal in Toronto
It’s no secret that Toronto has a history of bed bugs. It’s inevitable with this many people. Bed Bugs are named “travelling bugs” because they are very good at latching onto clothes and personal belongings in the hopes of infesting your home. Highly populated areas usually mean more bed bug infestations. That is why we positioned ourselves as a bed bug-only company in the Greater Toronto Area.
Our Structural examination license is from the Ontario Ministry of Environment Conservation and Parks. Any technician offering a bed bug heat treatment needs to carry this license.
Bed Bug Heat Treatment vs
Other Bed Bug Exterminators
There are many bed bug treatment methods being used within the industry. However, they have different levels of effectiveness.
Chemical treatments are the most common method of pest control. These types of treatments do not guarantee the total elimination of bed bugs. Bed bugs can hide away from the direct spray that is applied. Bed bugs are also known to become more resilient to chemicals over time. If a female bed bug does not die, she can keep multiplying.
Chemical treatments can be good at lessening the infestation but can rarely eliminate the entire infestation like a bed bug heat treatment.
Spot freezing involves the use of cold temperatures to kill bed bugs. However, this may not be as effective as once thought. Bed bugs have freeze-intolerant strategies that allow them to survive a few days of exposure to temperatures as low as -13°F (-25°C).
Steam is a sustainable method of removing bed bugs on the mattress or boxspring without harmful chemicals! Additionally, the high temperatures of steam can kill bed bugs almost instantly.
This method can be challenging since the steam must directly contact the bed bugs to kill them. Bed bugs hide in areas the steam cannot reach.
Most pest control companies sell a steaming/chemical package for bed bugs. The steaming can be done at home if you are thorough enough. Steaming can help lower the population but can rarely eliminate the entire infestation like a bed bug heat treatment.
Not All Heat Treatments Are Equal
Bed bug heat treatments are a specific type of extermination method. Successful heat treatments require the necessary equipment, experience, and skill. The exterminator must be familiar with bed bug behaviour and all sorts of structures to heat.
We do not recommend general pest control companies because they kill all pests and generally do not specialize in eliminating bed bugs. Bed bugs are tough to kill as it is. Using pesticides not specific to bed bugs won’t work. We recommend a few bed bug-specific exterminators in Toronto before some general pest control companies.
Most of these bed bug companies hire hourly workers where we are two owner-operators. We charge less and produce a higher quality service than the larger heat treatment companies in the Greater Toronto Area.
How do bed bugs find us?
Bed bugs are attracted to the carbon dioxide and body heat we produce. At night they find us when we are sleeping and bite us. Human blood is the ideal target for their blood meals. Some individuals can have adverse allergic reactions to bed bug bites.
Bed bugs multiply quickly; It’s extremely important to develop a treatment plan before the infestation worsens.
