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.

Heat treatments are executed by heating the entire space to a minimum of 50 degrees celsius or 122 fahrenheit. This is done by using industrial sized heaters and high powered convection fans to circulate the heat. Heat sensors are used around the space to monitor the heat.

Get Rid Of Bed Bugs With A One Session Heat Treatment In Guelph
It’s critical to eliminate bed bugs all at once because they can reproduce extremely quickly. Chemical treatments almost always require multiple sessions because the spray cannot reach every bed bug. They hide in the tightest of spaces, a lot of time inaccessible to chemical sprays. They are as thin as a credit card and can hide in the pages of a book. Even with multiple spray session there is no guarantee of full elimination of bed bugs, which is a must if you want to problem to go away.
Heat treatments on the other hand work by heating the entire space to at least 50 degrees celsius to kill every bed bug. When the temperature starts to rise the bed bugs actually get more active and come out of the structure from which they are hiding. Before the heat gets to lethal levels you can actually see the bed bugs circling in the middle of room. Once the temperature gets hot enough they get confused and drop almost simultaneously. This is the science behind why our heat treatment in Guelph is so successful and how every bed bug is eliminated in one session.
It’s important for the exterminator to have experience and skill in bed bug heat treatments. They need to understand the behaviour of bed bugs in all types of temperatures and move around all personal belongings to ensure there is no cold spots. Do not hire general pest control companies that think they can treat bed bugs like any other pest. This is a very niche treatment method that should be completed by a heat specific bed bug exterminator.
