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.

Many people do not understand what a bed bug heat treatment is until they or someone they know run into the issue of having bed bugs. It’s good to know that you have two main treatment options to choose from. The most common is chemical spray treatments. The reason why it’s so common is because it’s an easy treatment for exterminators to execute while being able to ask for a premium price. Another reason is because heat treatments are relatively new compared to chemical. Regardless of which one is more popular there is key differences.
A chemical treatment is usually in the form of a spray applied in the infected space. While this can lessen the number of bed bugs, it can rarely kill every bed bug. The reason for this is because bed bug are extremely thin and hide in the highest cracks and crevice. It makes it hard or the spray to hit every bed bug. Not only that, but there’s been ongoing research that suggest bed bug have ongoing resilience to these sprays over time. The residual from the spray is usually not enough to kill bed bugs either. This treatment is cheaper in the beginning but end up costs more than a single heat treatment by the number of visits.
The goal of a heat treatment is to heat the entire space to lethal levels to leave no bed bug alive. The reason why heat treatments are so successful is because bed bugs actually get more active in the heat and come out when it starts to rise. Drawing them out is one of the main reasons heat treatments are so successful. This is the treatment that can eliminate every bed bug while not using any chemicals or pesticides.
