Tips for a better bed bug heat treatment

Bed bugs don’t slow down during the Winter —they still want you for dinner!— we just tend to travel less after the Holidays and therefore transport fewer hitchhiking bed bugs. Between now and the end of the year it’s wise to be especially vigilant for bed bugs, and to kill a bed bug infestation before your holiday guests arrive.

 

Bed bug heat treatment tips

I’ve put together a list of techniques to provide better results when eradicating bed bugs with heat. Some of these items pertain to us, some to you.

Because heat kills all the living and unhatched bed bugs in one treatment, there is no need for a repeat treatment. The only way a successfully-treated area will have a reinfestation is if someone brings them back in to the area.

It is possible to achieve a 100% bed bug kill in any weather, regardless of starting temperatures and external ambient temperatures. As with any other insect heat treatment, there is only one mandatory criteria for a successful treatment: achieving lethal temperatures for the required time duration. Measure temperatures and log times and know when all the bed bugs, other insects, and their eggs in the treatment area are dead.

If you found a bug, don’t panic! Give us a call at 513-604-6332 and we’ll keep your family safe. TRS Extermination will free you from the fear and frustration of bed bugs. Your life will be less stressful and your home will be bed-bug free. When we’re done, we know all your bed bugs— and other insects— will be dead.
