The popular industry trend in bedbug elimination is thermal or heat treatments. The obvious motivating factor is that it is scientifically proven as an effective tool for bedbug elimination. The other features & benefits are that it is 100% organic or chemical free and requires substantially less preparation than conventional treatments.
Science has proven that temperatures above 113◦ F will kill bedbugs in all stages including eggs. Heat can penetrates cracks and crevices to kill bed bug adults, nymphs, and eggs. As a benefit the heat process will also kill mold, allergens, and other pests that are present.
1. Monitor & Detection = Creating optimal temperatures which are monitored on site both inside the treatment area as well as from a remote location. Our specialists use wireless sensors and thermal scanners to ensure that lethal temperatures are reached in all areas without damaging the space and its contents. Specialists will adjust heat inside the space according to readings as well as inspect for any pest activity and movement.
2. Thermal Heat = Heaters (propane or electric) are strategically placed within the space; introducing and re- circulating heated air with a target temperature not to exceed 138◦ F in any area within the structure. Temperatures will be maintained to ensure the thermal pest death point has been achieved.
3. Circulation = High intensity fans re-circulate heated air throughout the space to reach pests in cracks and crevices or high infestation zones. This process is called convection heating and it ensures even distribution of temperatures while not permitting insects to escape to cooler spots within the space.
