If your home has a bed bug infestation, you must deal with the problem right away. Infestations can spread quickly and wreak havoc on your home and on your life. To make sure you properly take care of the infestation, you should do careful research into your treatment options.

Traditional or chemical treatment can be highly effective, but many people choose heat treatment instead. During heat treatment, your pest control experts increase the temperature in your home to kill bed bugs and their eggs. Temperatures of 118 degrees Fahrenheit or higher are lethal to bed bugs and eggs within 90 minutes.

Benefits of Heat Treatment

Less Prep Time

While preparing for chemical bedbug treatment can take several days, you can prepare your home for heat treatment in less than 24 hours. This means that you can treat your home sooner and eliminate the bed bugs as quickly as possible. Your pest control company will tell you everything you need to do to prepare for the heat treatment, but you should easily be able to complete the checklist in a day.

Shorter Treatment

Heat treatment only requires one visit, and your house can be fully exterminated in just one day. You won’t need any followup visits from your pest control company, and you won’t have to do anything extra to finish the extermination. Traditional bed bug treatment takes several weeks to complete, which can be extremely stressful. With heat treatment, you can get rid of your bed bug problem entirely in one day.

One Treatment Kills All Stages

Most bed bug chemical treatments don’t kill the bugs in all stages of their life cycle. Therefore, repeated treatments are needed over the course of four to six weeks to kill the remaining bugs as they hatch from their eggs. Heat treatment targets bed bugs at all stages of life, so you can get rid of the eggs, larvae, and adult bugs in just one treatment.

Green and Safe

Heat treatment is completely eco-friendly, and it’s a good option for people who are sensitive to chemicals or are uncomfortable treating their home with insecticides. Heat doesn’t leave residuals, so you’ll know that your home is safe to return to once the treatment is done.
