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 Hamilton

Typically bed bugs end up near their food source (aka humans) and are mostly commonly found in the bed. They can find our beds quite easily because they are attracted to the CO2 we emit. The most CO2 is in our beds because we spend the most time there. Bed bugs are smart and know to come out at night when we are sleeping. This is mainly due to all the CO2 we exhale. 

Luckily, bed bugs do not transmit diseases but are known to give nasty bites. They don’t necessarily like all blood types. It is very common for only one person to be bitten with two people sleeping in the same bed. Despite all this bed bugs are not ideal. Even if they don’t bite they have gross musty smell and leave behind feces and their own skin that bed bugs shed. It’s important to know what treatment options are available to you if you have bed bugs. 

The two main treatment methods are Chemical treatments being the most common and heat treatments. Chemical treatments are commonly practices by pest control companies because they are easy to execute and can charge a premium just for the fact of them spraying bed bugs. However every bed bug is not hit with the spray the problem will not go away. In fact it’s very uncommon for to hit every bed bug because they hide in the tightest of spaces. Not only that but there is extensive research that bed bug develop resistant to these sprays over time. Multiple sessions are needed with chemical sprays still without the guarantee of full elimination. 

Spray treatments end up costing more than a heat treatment in the long run. Heat treatments have a higher upfront cost but allow for full elimination in one session by heating the entire space to lethal levels. Bed bugs actually get active when the heat starts to rise and come out of the areas in which they are hiding. This is why a heat treatment in Hamilton is so successful.
