What Is Heat Treatment of Bed Bugs?

Heat treatment of bed bugs is a pest control method that uses high temperatures to eliminate bed bugs and their eggs. The process involves heating the infested area to a temperature of around 120-135°F (49-57°C) for several hours, which is lethal to bed bugs at all life stages. Specialized equipment, such as industrial heaters and fans, is used to evenly distribute the heat throughout the space. This method is effective in reaching hidden bed bugs in cracks and crevices and is considered a chemical-free alternative to traditional pest control methods.

How long does bed bug heat treatment takes?

Bed bug heat treatments typically take several hours to complete. For a one-bedroom property, the treatment might last around 6-8 hours, while a two-bedroom property could take 8-10 hours. These times can vary based on factors such as the size of the property, the severity of the infestation, and the heating equipment used. It’s crucial for the treatment to maintain consistent high temperatures throughout to effectively eliminate bed bugs and their eggs.

Are bed bugs really that hard to get rid of?

Yes, bed bugs can be extremely challenging to eradicate on your own due to their resilience and ability to hide in tiny crevices. However, with our professional services, we can efficiently eliminate them with ease and provide a guarantee for a bed bug-free home.

When do I pay for the heat treatment service?

Payment for our heat treatment service is required once the job is complete. We require a 50% deposit upfront, with the remaining balance due after the service is finished. We accept bank transfer, debit card, and cash payments for your convenience.

How long after heat treatment do bed bugs die?

After heat treatment, bed bugs typically die almost immediately if exposed to temperatures above 120°F (49°C) for an extended period, such as 90 minutes or more. This temperature range effectively kills bed bugs at all life stages, including eggs. It’s important to maintain these high temperatures throughout the treatment process to ensure complete eradication of the infestation.

Is it normal to see bed bugs after heat treatment?

It is not uncommon to see bed bugs after heat treatment, especially in the immediate aftermath. Some bed bugs may survive initial exposure but will likely perish soon afterwards due to the treatment’s residual effects. If bed bugs are observed again within the first week or two following treatment, contact us for a follow-up inspection to ensure the infestation has been fully eradicated.
