WHY HEAT TREATMENT?

Since 1972 when DDT was banned, there has not been a chemical pesticide that is able to kill bed bugs on an ongoing basis. Current practices take several treatments with chemicals to disrupt the life cycle of bed bugs. With Pesticide Chemical treatments it is very common that you have to throw out much of your furniture. (Not So With Heat)

Because there has not been a suitable chemical replacement to DDT, the pest control industry had to find a better way to treat for bed bugs and be able to kill them effectively.

OUR METHOD OF TREATMENT

We use a 1.2 million btu heater that ducts 140 – 160 degree heat into your home or apartment to raise every square inch of the inside temperature to above the proper killing temperature of 122 degrees. Once we have raised the temperature in the coldest area to 122 degrees we maintain that temperature for at least 3 hours.

Our system pressurizes your house with heat and forces the heat through walls, furniture, behind baseboards and into every nook and cranny in your home. This is what really sets us apart from other companies. At 122 Degrees, bed bugs and their eggs die in less than a minute. We know how to get rid of bed bugs fast, easy and in one treatment.
