Bed Bug Heat Treatment

There’s only one winner!

If you are fighting a bed bug infestation, you need to stack the odds in your favour to win the battle.

The problem is that most home and business owners leave bed bugs with a fighting chance.

With heat treatment for bed bugs, there’s only one winner… it penetrates every crack and crevice where bed bugs hide, eradicating the bugs at every stage of their lifecycle, including the eggs.

There’s no coming back from that!

A single visit from our professionals is all that’s required to solve your bed bug problem once and for all: no days of preparation or disruption from multiple visits to your property.

What is heat treatment for bed bugs?

Heat treatment is the latest and most effective way to eradicate bed bugs.

During the heat treatment process, specialist, high-powered convection heaters raise a room’s temperature to between 49°C and 60°C and hold it there for an extended period. 

These 18-200Kw heaters are set to reach precisely the right temperature for precisely the right length of time to kill the bed bugs at all stages of their life cycles, including the eggs. 

Bed bugs love to hide in the tiniest of spaces. That’s how they’ve managed to live side by side with humans for thousands of years. With heat treatment, there’s no hiding place.

Bed bugs require proteins and enzymes for the pest to survive and the heat treatment deprives them of this.

Understanding this is critical for permanent bed bug eradication. Most traditional methods work temporarily before the bed bugs return, which is both annoying and expensive for home and business owners.

Why use heat treatment over other methods?

To understand why heat treatment is the most effective bed bug treatment method, we need to consider what bed bugs are, what they’re attracted to and why common approaches are ineffective.

Bed bugs are: 

  • Superb hiders: their flat bodies can crawl into any crevice where human blood is on offer.
  • Tiny until they eat: after feeding, bed bugs swell up and turn a deeper reddish-brown.
  • Patient: bed bugs can be dormant for 12 months without feeding.
  • Mobile: they move around (up to one meter per minute).
  • Adaptable: they’re often found in furniture and luggage as well as mattresses.

Bed bugs are also smart. That’s why it’s estimated that over half of bed bug infestations in the UK go entirely unnoticed.

When bed bugs are noticed, most treatments are only partially effective. 

They rely on chemical-based insecticides. Despite multiple visits (in many cases five or six visits over several weeks), these treatments fail to eradicate the pest once and for all. This is mainly because of resistance to certain chemicals and the fact that only the bugs that come into contact with the insecticide are killed

Remember, these pests can move and may be able to crawl away to a new hiding place to escape chemical treatments.

That’s why treating a whole property with heat (including adjoining rooms) may be recommended for absolute eradication of the pest.

Our heat treatments are superior bed bug eradicators because they are:

  • Comprehensive: We leave zero hiding places for bugs. The only escape is to leave the room(s) being treated, which we make impossible.
  • Convenient: One visit only is required (most exterminations are completed in one day).
  • Eco-friendly: Heat treatments are chemical-free, leave no waste and add nothing to the toxic load in your home/business.
  • Guaranteed: If all bugs in your home/business aren’t eradicated, we’ll come back until they are.

We can help families avoid the itching and complaints — and businesses avoid the devastating loss of reputation.
