Make no mistake: The bed bug has returned from its near-extinction in the early fifties following the removal of DDT from the American marketplace. This resurgence was initially caused primarily by increased frequency of international travel. However, today, bed bugs can be introduced into a home in a wide variety of ways. Travel is still one of the primary causes, with bed bugs attaching themselves to luggage during your hotel stay.
If you suspect bed bugs in your home, you have probably read a lot of things that you shouldn’t do to attempt to eliminate the infestation. Bug bombs, foggers, and other area pesticides can cause the bed bug infestation to spread to other places throughout your home when used. In fact, it is suspected that, to effectively remove an infestation using such products, you would have to fumigate your home with three times as much product as you would when removing termites from your home: That’s a pretty expensive way to get rid of bed bugs!
The good news is that there is a better way. Though bed bugs can be extremely difficult to find and kill, they are particularly susceptible to extreme highs in temperature. Bed bugs at all stages of their life die after extended exposure to temperatures in excess of 115 degrees Fahrenheit. In light of this finding, Environmental Heat Solutions offers a heat-based solution to bed bug infestations which remove infestations without the need for harmful chemicals.
Basically, it works kind of like the heater that is already in your home. However, these systems are far more powerful than your central heater. Environmental Heat Solutions uses top-of-the-line Thermal Remediation® systems which circulate hot air throughout your home, using fans to push heated air deep into cracks and wall voids so the bed bugs have nowhere to hide. By circulating and recirculating this hot air throughout your home, we raise the internal temperature of your residence past the point where it is fatal for bed bugs in a matter of a few hours. No dangerous chemicals and no fumigation!
Heat treating your home will kill every bed bug within it, without leaving the lingering residue of fumigation. This means you can re-inhabit your house quicker, and be bed bug free without the potential pollution caused by chemical means of bed bug removal. So if your home is infested, don’t wait: Call the professionals at Environmental Heat Solutions. We are well-versed in the use of the new Thermal Remediation® systems, and will work hard to ensure that your home is purged of these tiny pests. Call us today to get started.
