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.

Similarly, exterminators often miss clusters of infestations when using chemicals and other pest control methods. Chemicals draw the bed bugs into their hiding spots and heat draws them out. The heat is risen to lethal levels leaving the bed bugs no way to escape. Using heat to kill bed bugs is the most effective method because of bed bug biology, heat breaks down their DNA proteins, killing them in the process.
