Heat Treatment for Bed Bugs
There are many bed bug treatments options available, however none are as effective as our heat treatment to get rid of these persistent pests.
Over the years bed bugs have become resistant to pesticides traditionally used by many pest controllers. And with the world becoming more conscious of the effects of chemicals on the environment, heat treatment has become the most effective way to remove a bed bug infestation.
Unlike traditional methods of treatment, heat treatment does not only kill bed bugs in the bed. By heating the whole property it ensures we kill bugs and eggs which can be easily transferred to clothing, books, carpets and other areas of the home.
How Does Heat Treatment Kill the Bed Bugs
Using specialist industrial heaters, we heat the infested property to a sustained temperature of around 141 degrees Fahrenheit and use industrial fans to circulate the heat. The heat treatment will last for up to 6 hours and during this time we will monitor the temperature to ensure there are no cold spots where bed bugs can hide.
The thermal treatment kills bed bugs and their eggs by dehydrating due to long exposure to heat ensuring the infestation is 100% eradicated.

As our heat treatment for bed bugs does not require the use of any chemicals it ensures that your rooms are safe to use after the treatment is finished meaning pets and children are kept safe.

Before undertaking the work, we will always carry out a full survey to determine which of our bed bug heat treatment packages is right for your infestation.
