Why Use Heat?
Heat treatments are a popular, environmentally friendly alternative to using chemicals to eliminate bed bug infestations. There is abundant scientific evidence that bed bugs are becoming increasingly resistant to chemicals but are physically not capable of surviving elevated ambient (above 122°F) temperatures. Heat treatments are the only way to ensure all stages of bed bug life (eggs, nymphs and adults) have been killed in a single treatment.
Exterminate Bed Bugs With A Heat Treatment In Caledon
Bed bugs are known to be one of the hardest pests to get rid of because they hide in the tightest of spaces and are so thin they can hide in the pages of a book. There is an abundant amount of research that proves bed bugs have ongoing resistance to chemicals sprays commonly used to exterminate them. Not only that, but it is almost impossible to hit every bed bug with the spray, allowing them to keep reproducing. Using heat to kill bed bugs is the most effective method because of the fact that they’re made of protein, and heat breaks down their DNA proteins, killing them is the process. Just before the heat reaches lethal levels, bed bugs actually come out from where they are hiding and becoming active. This makes it easy for the heat to kill every bed bug and allowing a very high success rate if the extermination is skilled and experienced.
Conventional methods for exterminating bed bugs often damage or even make you throw out infested furniture. That’s not the worst part however. The worst part is its inability to eliminate every bed bug. Other pest control methods often fail to eliminate bed bug eggs and larvae, which means that your infestation may only seem to go away for a short period of time. This is also because live bed bugs are smart and will hide out for a prolonged period to stay clear of the chemical spray and its residual.
A heat treatments effectively kills bed bugs at every part of their life cycle. This is because a heat treatment raises the ambient room temperature to lethal levels for bed bugs at every life cycle stage compared to other methods that require the exterminator to visually try and kind every bed bug they missed, which is not a recommended method. There is a reason canines are used to smell them out, because it so hard for humans to find them with the human eye.

It’s important to remove heat sensitive items such as plants, makeup,wax-based items, or anything that can explode from the infected area.
