Thermal Heat Treatment
Our own experiences show and studies prove that thermal heat treatment is the most effective option when battling bed bugs. Over the years bed bugs (including their eggs) have been gaining high tolerances to pesticide products making them difficult to eliminate and requiring multiple treatments to gain control. Bed bugs don’t stand a chance against our state-of-art thermal heater. Our heat will kill bed bugs no matter their stage of life cycle, including eggs. Another worthy fact about our thermal heat treatment is time. From start to finish we can complete a successful heat treatment in just a few hours!
Before we can turn up the heat there are a few things that need to be done first. When you hire Alpha Home Pest Control for a thermal heat treatment you will be given a checklist with instruction on what to do with certain household items (aerosols, wax candles, pets, ammunition etc.). We will perform a crack and crevice treatment to ensure the success of the treatment. When we set up, heating tubes are strategically placed in order to get the best results. Heat sensors will also be placed around the structure, this allows us to safely monitor all areas and ensures there is no “cool zone” where bed bugs could survive. Once we get the structure to the desired temperature, 125°-140°, a lethal temperature to bed bugs in any stage of their life cycle, that temperature will be maintained for a period of time typically 3-5 hours. The size and amount of “clutter” within a structure will have an impact on time. During the treatment, our technician’s many move items to help ensure heat is being distributed evenly throughout the structure.
Once treatment is completed, you will be notified and will be returning to a bed bug-free home.
Alpha Home Pest Control technicians are experienced, state certified and specifically treat only bed bugs. It’s what they do best! They have the training and proper experience to perform a thorough bed bug inspection. Our technicians will create a custom plan for your unique situation. We have a selection of four different products and our technician will determine which will be more effective for your custom plan. The products we use are top of the line in the industry and very effective, over the counter products just do not compare. Products you buy over the counter may actually make your situation worse, by causing the bed bugs to flee and spread the infestation and most importantly, it won’t kill the bed bug eggs. Treating bed bugs with a spray treatment will require multiple service treatments extending over a period of a few weeks depending on the size of the infestation and joint effort from the customer to be most effective. We will send a “to do” checklist on what to do before treatment begins and what to do after your first treatment has been completed.
