This capability permits access to hard-to-reach places, where bed bugs like to lay low during the day.

The bed bug is not a nocturnal insect species, it just exhibits the behaviors, all of which are part of an effort to avoid human detection.
As previously mentioned, thermal heat extermination penetrates deep into various materials, including wood, carpet fibers, upholstery, and plastic. This capability plays a major role in the extermination process, by making contact with adult bed bugs, as well as their larvae and eggs. This is rarely seen in the pest control industry, which is why thermal heat is gaining a lot of attention from exterminators around the globe.

Many exterminators seem to think it is, but there is not enough evidence to validate this claim. We do like the fact that thermal heat penetrates hard-to-reach bed bug hiding places. Within 15 minutes of exposure, the bed bugs will gradually stop breathing.

How Does Our Thermal Heat Treatments Work
Thermal heat might sound like a complicated process, but in the end it really is simple. It is a well-known fact that bed bugs cannot survive once they are exposed to extreme heat. When their bodies are exposed to temperatures of 140 degrees F or higher they just wither up and die. Basically, our treatment involves bringing in special machines to raise the temperature in the home to 180 degrees F. Our techs will monitor the temperature in each room and make sure that it never drops and we will continually apply this amount of heat for two hours.
Just How Effective Is This Type Of Treatment
This treatment is 100 percent effective and we are willing to stand behind that statement. There are only rare cases when some bed bugs might live. For instance, if a bed bug might be able to escape the home before being exposed to the heat it will live and it might even return. This sometimes can be a real problem in apartments and condos. When it comes to other buildings that are not attached heat is without a doubt a go-to solution for eliminating bed bugs. Just keep in mind that it is extremely rare that bed bugs escape, but we just want to make it known that it is entirely possible.
This is why we always schedule follow up visits with our clients. After the first initial treatment our techs will show back up weeks later just to ensure that the problem has been completely eliminated.
