The Problem With Bedbugs
Now that you know the benefits of getting our bedbug heat treatment, it’s time to explore the problems these pests can cause for your home or place of business. Bedbug bites often cause redness and skin irritation, but the idea of having bedbugs is the worst part for most people.
Bedbugs leave small red stains behind after feeding in addition to dropping fecal matter on your mattress. If you are a business owner and have bedbugs, you have even more problems on hand. One customer posting a picture of a bedbug online is all it takes to harm your reputation and decrease your profitability. Take action at the first sign of trouble if you want to avoid these issues.
How Bedbugs Operate
Once bedbugs get inside your home or business, they find a place to hide until they are ready for a meal. In your home, bedbugs are likely to live in your bedroom or mattress. But they also hide in cracks in the wall and other small spaces that are out of view.
When it comes to businesses, bedbugs can hide in furniture and areas that are out of reach. These pests find a host by picking up on body heat and the carbon dioxide we exhale. Although bedbugs try staying out of view most of the time, they will come out during the day if they are desperate for a meal.
How Bedbugs Get Into Your Home or Business
Bedbugs have a few ways of getting from one place to another. If your home is not connected to other buildings, bedbugs can get into your clothes if you visit an area that has already been infested. Bedbugs that get into office buildings or apartments spread to other areas when their population grows.
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.
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.
