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.

High powered fans are need to evenly distribute the heat. Heat sensors are a must so the exterminator can monitor the heat. It’s the exterminators job to move around personal belongings in the heat to eliminate any cold spots. An exterminator who only does bed bug heat treatments is recommended. Bed bugs are known to be difficult to exterminate thats why its important the exterminator to have experience in all types of bed bug situations.
