You may be wondering how effective bed bug control can also be eco-friendly. Aren’t chemicals the only way to get rid of bed bugs? Over the years, pest control professionals throughout the US have come to the realization that bed bugs are not easily destroyed with the chemicals that were available for use by pest control operators. Bed bugs have been also building up a resistance to certain types of pest control materials, so it was recognized that in order to get rid of bed bugs, a new and more effective control method would need to be devised. This is when bed bug heat treatments were born! It is a well known fact that bed bugs (and their eggs) cannot survive above a temperature of 113°F, so in order to eliminate a bed bug infestation, we use a system of heaters and fans to warm the environment in your structure up to 120°F for a period of time to kill bed bugs quickly and without chemicals.  The heat is spread throughout each room that is treated and the fans help eliminate cold spots that may be present. The room is kept at the high temperature for several hours, depending on the size of the room, to make sure that all bed bug life is extinguished.
