Heat treatments are an effective way to eliminate bed bugs
quickly, but tend to be more effective than conventional treatment methods.
Portable heaters and fans are used to gradually heat the air to about 120 -
130°F while monitoring with sensors and strategically placing fans for air
circulation. By carefully controlling the temperature, bugs and eggs are killed
wherever they may be without damaging household items. Heat treatments
require specialized training and equipment, and may be more effective than
conventional approaches relying principally on insecticides.
Liquid/ Insecticide treatment application entails treating all
areas where the bugs are found or tend to hide or crawl. A variety of
EPA-registered materials are available formulated as liquids, dusts and aerosols.
Insecticides such as Temprid®, Bedlamb® and Phantom® tend to be more
effective than bed bug material sold over the counter by retailers. Essentially, it is the expertise of the pest management professional that results in
eliminating the Bed Bug issue.
Check It Yourself!
Carefully inspect your mattress and box spring for evidence of bed bugs: live bed bugs (see pics!), blood stains or fecal droppings. These are all signs of a possible infestation, but if you are unsure, consult a professional today.
