The Benefits Of Heat Treatment Over Chemicals For A Bed Bug Infestation

Want to get rid of bed bugs forever? 
Bed bug heat treatment is the best way to do it. 

These insects are highly irritating, and can cause a great deal of distress to your family. Not only that, they are great at hiding in small cracks and crevices. This makes them extremely hard to get rid of. For this reason, most people will resort to using insecticide.  

But, did you know that chemical treatments are not the only way to get rid of bed bugs? 

The Best Way To Kill Bed Bugs Is With Heat 
Like most living creatures, bed bugs cannot survive under extreme temperatures. And, according to research, bed bugs will die if exposed to  heat over 113 degrees Fahrenheit.  

Bed bug heat treatment is a far superior way to kill bed bugs, and has many advantages.  
First and foremost, it is more effective.  

Did you know that insecticides only kill the fully grown bed bugs? It’s almost completely ineffective against the eggs and larvae. This means that as soon as the next generation of bugs start to hatch, you’re going to have the exact same problem all over again. Bed bug heat treatment kills the bug at every stage of its life cycle.  

 Here Are Some Bonus Benefits: 

1. It’s safer for the environment. By using heat instead of chemicals, you will be doing your bit to protect the environment.  

2. Heat is also healthier for residents of the property, including pets and children. When you use insecticides, you are literally crop dusting your home with chemicals. For days, weeks or even months, your home is going to be coated in pesticide chemicals which can affect the health of your family.  

4. Using heat means you don’t have to leave your property for long. You can’t be at home while chemical treatments are in progress, and will need to stay away for some time afterwards while the fumes clear. In some cases, you might even have to find somewhere to stay overnight. 

5. Every organism ultimately adapts to the environment it is in. And today’s bugs have evolved, becoming highly resistant to the insecticides used against them. Just like drug resistant bacteria, these chemicals are often less than fully effective against these insects.  

6. Heat is also more efficient in dealing with a bed bug infestation because it can penetrate into the nooks and crannies where bed bugs love to hide. For example, Empire pest control has a service that eradicates every bed bug in the property by getting the heated air into the smallest of places.  

At the end of the day, the benefits of bed bug heat treatment are clear.  

It’s an all-round better choice for you, your family, and the environment as well. You can spare yourself from being exposed to toxic and carcinogenic chemicals. Plus, it kills all of the bugs, meaning you won’t be plagued by these creatures again.
