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.
Kill Bed Bugs With Heat In Kitchener
A bed bug heat treatment is the most efficient and effective way to eradicate bed bug infestations in your home or space. It’s a thorough process that does not leave any part of the affected area untreated. It is also important to leave everything where it is for the treatment. Moving items may cause you to infest other rooms of your home.
You’ll also want to leave your home before the treatment because it will get hot. Take your pets with you too. They would not be able to withstand the high temperature. Additionally, you’ll want to find out where the bed bugs originated from so you won’t have them again. The best way to find the source of the bed bugs is to retrace your steps. They could come from your babysitter, your friends, or your workplace. It makes it hard for the exterminator to offer warranty when your home keeps getting re-infested.
Our Professional Exterminators Will Do A Heat Treatment In Kitchener
Heat treatments are the only way to eliminate every bed bug all at once. Bed bugs actually get more active in the heat and come out from the areas they are hiding. This is why heat treatments are so successful and chemical treatments are so ineffective at killing every bed bug. One of the biggest advantages of using a heat treatment to get rid of bed bugs is that you do not have to worry about throwing away infested furniture or damage your home.
There are some small things that cannot be treated and before undergoing a bed bug heat treatment, anything that cannot withstand high temperatures should be removed. It’s important to remove heat sensitive items such as plants, makeup or wax-based items from the affected area. We will make sure that the items you’re removing aren’t infested with bed bugs, so you don’t spread your infestation to other areas.
If you have pets, you must take them out with you while your home is undergoing the treatment. Bed bugs cannot stick to animal fur so you don’t have to worry about that. Consult one of our bed bug exterminators about any items you’re worried about and review the pre- treatment checklist that we will give you before your heat treatment. Our bed bug heat treatment can take anywhere from 4 to 8 hours to complete, depending on the size of your space and severity of the infestation.
