With the use of heat, a bed bug infestation can be eliminated in a short period of time, without the use of chemicals, allowing businesses and homeowners to resume normal use of the room quickly.
Heat treatment works because bed bugs are attracted to heat – they simply won’t flee to re-infest another day. Because heat kills every life stage from egg to adult, eradication can take place with one treatment.
And because heat is an environmentally friendly process, infested items will not need to be thrown away.
A heat treatment takes several hours, depending on the size of the space, severity of infestation and how much is in a room. More “stuff” – beds, dressers, clothes, boxes, bags, toys, etc. – requires more time than emptier rooms. However, when treatment is over, all life stages of the bugs, from eggs to adults, will be dead. That means you can sleep peacefully the same night that treatment is completed.
