How effective is professional heat treatment for bed bugs?
Heat treatment is the fastest and most effective method for eliminating insects, such as bed bugs and moths. Bed bug heat treatments use high temperatures in specially designed equipment to spread heat throughout a property to kill bed bugs and their eggs. At high temperatures, all stages of insects are destroyed, including eggs, larvae, and pupae.
Pest control chemicals do not affect bed bug eggs, so heat treatments are more effective. Unlike chemicals, heat can be used on most items, including clothing, bedding, and delicate fabrics. It can be used for residential or commercial properties such as guest houses, hotels or offices. It is an environment-friendly and sustainable solution to your pest control needs. As this method doesn’t rely on insecticides, it is pet and child-safe and a perfect solution for people sensitive to chemicals.
