What Is A Bed Bug Heat Treatment?
We use specialized equipment to heat the infested areas to 150 degrees. The heat can be applied in only infested rooms or in the entire home. During our signature Heat Treatment the whole home will be heated including infestations lurking behind the walls. Furniture such as couches and beds are heated thoroughly to avoid replacing costly items. Carpets, walls, and ceiling are all heated so the bugs will be reached with lethal temperatures within all wall moldings. This treatment is very different than using a steamer or other device, as it will heat the entire space targeted, forcing hot air into cracks and crevices.

Why is Heat Better Than Other Methods?
Why Choose Us for Your Bed Bug Heat Treatment
Why is a heat treatment better than other methods?
Bed bugs can be very resistant to pesticide alone when not using the correct products. This is why a heat treatment is the preferred way to kill bed bugs. The benefits of the heat treatment over pesticide treatment are as follows.
- Kills all bed bugs and eggs in 8 hours or less
- 100% People and Pet Friendly
- Re-enter the home quickly and get back to normal
Do I need to get rid of my furniture?
No. Keep all of your furniture in place for the heat treatment. The furniture will be usable after it is treated. There are some melt able or combustible items such as candles or Aerosols that need to be removed prior to heating. We will provide you with a detailed preparation checklist. Easy to follow, and safe for you home and contents.
Do our vehicles have “Bed Bugs” written on the side?
No. All of our vehicles and equipment are discreet. There are no pictures of bed bugs or words stating “Bed Bugs”. We understand that discretion is important to our customers.
Without Causing Damage
Our target temperature is 150°F. We reach that temperature in ten minutes in the summer. Then we hold it there, turning the rooms into convection ovens. This temperature may seem extreme, but the inside of a car gets hotter in the summer. We have found it is the perfect temperature to prevent damage yet allow us to reach all of the hard to heat areas like between wooden furniture joints. Our proprietary heaters are one of the only types of fuel burning heaters that are capable of precise and automatic temperature control. Most other companies must manually adjust the heaters the entire time – leaving room for human error. Our heaters sit discreetly outside, bringing the heated outside air into the home through ducting. We honor your need for discretion and always keep the process on the down low.
Without Sacrificing Quality
Faster heat treatments are much better so long as you do not cut corners and sacrifice quality. Here is why. When you heat a bed bug infested room slowly to 120°F or 140°F it may take 10 hours or longer just to reach target temperature using electric heaters. That is if the target temperatures are ever reached. We believe that if you heat slowly, the bed bugs will have time to migrate away from the heated area before it reaches lethal temperature. Wouldn’t you? Then, the heat will not kill them. So… they will be alive and bitey. No good.
