One day, ZERO survivors!

Bed Bug Heat Treatment

Heat penetrates cracks and crevices to kill bed bug larvae, adults and eggs. Unlike topical chemical treatments and dustings, heat will get through a mattress, under the carpet and into wall voids where bugs typically hide. By applying heat evenly throughout a structure, we are able to kill all the growth stages of the bed bug in a day. Heat is the only proven method that will kill eggs hidden in places pesticides can’t reach.

Bed bugs are an unpleasant problem, to say the least; we make eradicating them easy. Here’s what you can expect from our team:

  1. Call us for a free assessment. When you are ready, we will schedule your appointment.

  2. We will arrive at your address between 8:00 and 9:00 am. Our trucks and uniforms are confidential, so no one will need to know why we’re here. If asked, we tell people that we’re here to dry the carpets (indeed, they do get dried in the process!)

  3. We set up either propane heaters outside your unit, or electric heaters inside. We utilize ductwork to transfer heat from the heaters to rooms and spaces.

  4. Each room will have 2-4 centrifugal fans to circulate heat (convection).

  5. Each room will have 3-4 temperature probes located in places bugs are likely to hide. This ensures that everything reaches approximately 135-degrees F for at least 3 hours (bed bugs die at 115-degrees). This is about the temperature inside a car on a hot summer day, and though it kills bed bugs, spiders, insects, toxic molds and bacteria, it is a safe temperature for most household items. (See our Preparation page for specific exceptions.)

  6. The job is typically done between 4:00 and 6:00 pm. Residents can come home after dinner and sleep the night in their homes, bed bug free!
