Using heat treatment to get rid of bed bugs may seem like magic, but its science.
How Does a Heat Treatment Work?
Heat treatments usually involve the addition of industrial heat (120 to 150 °F) to your property or home. The high temperature will kill the bed bugs, along with their eggs, but it won’t burn your belongings.
The traditional way of treating bed bugs is the use of strong insecticides. After spraying a lot of chemicals, the exterminators will vacuum the area for days. This process needs a lot of manpower, making the extermination process too expensive, and turning the whole operation into a logistical nightmare.
Aside from that, bed bugs are small, quick, and good at hiding behind your closets and inside the walls, plus they lay their eggs underneath your furniture. After a few days, the few survivors will repopulate your bed and all the things around it.
When heat is used, it leaves no toxic footmark. Plus, it spreads evenly around the entire area or property so the bed bugs will have no room to hide.
What Makes a Heat Treatment Special?
Our Seattle bed bug extermination company believe that heat is a state-of-the-art treatment available across Washington.
Here are the reasons why heat is the best and most effective treatment for bed bugs.
There’s no space for bed bugs to hide
Spray-based treatments can’t cover a whole room. Moreover, these gas-based chemicals may be strong, but they can’t reach everything, especially if you have a well-loved house that is filled with clothes, furniture, and prized possessions.
Keep in mind that every cranny or nook that is not reached by conventional treatment is a place where bed bugs may hide. Heat can simultaneously target your entire house; thus, the bed bugs won’t be able to hide and repopulate after a few days.
It can kill bed bugs instead of letting them sleep
Like rabbits and bears, insects are capable of hibernating. In fact, bed bugs are capable of hiding and sleeping for days or even weeks. Because of this, bed bugs can re-infest your home. In some cases, they were never really gone!
When you use chemicals to knock out bed bugs, they can wake-up after a few days. Traditionally, the main solution for this is to use stronger chemicals. But, how strong is the lethal dose?
It fixes resistance to pesticides
The bed bugs festering your house probably came from someone’s belongings. This is because they are nomadic creatures. Before arriving at your homes, there’s a big chance that these pests were “killed” using a chemical treatment, wherein they were able to survive and develop resistance.
A common problem developing among various pest species is pesticide resistance. Once the pests are able to survive an assassination attempt with Chemical X, you need to apply Chemical X along with Chemical Y to get rid of these pests. The problem is that the use of strong chemicals can harm our water and environment.
Unlike chemicals, heat is a physical process. It is capable of killing bed bugs without giving them a chance to escape or develop resistance.
It doesn’t harm your belongings
A requirement when spraying pesticides or using gas-based chemicals is to leave your house empty for days. Thus, you need to find a place where you can stay for a week, and you have to discard all your furniture to prevent a new infestation.
If you add all these, the treatment cost will end up higher than the exterminator’s fee. When you use heat to treat bed bugs, you can go home and sleep on your own bed at the end of the day.
