Whole-room heat treatments use a specially designed equipment to raise the temperature in your property to eliminate pests. Bed bugs and eggs die within 90 minutes at 118°F (48°C) or immediately at 122°F (50°C). A heat treatment usually takes between six to eight hours depending on the size and condition of the area being treated. Before starting the treatment, we strongly advise removing pets and any heat sensitive items that may melt or be damaged due to high heat. Heat treatment for bed bugs is generally considered the most effective treatment since it kills bed bugs at all stages of life.
Another effective way of controlling bed bugs is through traditional treatments. A thorough insecticide treatment should involve 2-3 visits from the pest control professionals. An insecticide treatment takes about 30 minutes to 2 hours depending on the size and condition of the room. To achieve better results, this option uses three different types of insecticides like the following:
A fast-acting, contact insecticide that will be used on the surfaces that you and the people around you frequently touch.
A residual insecticide for indoor furniture, cracks, crevices, and the underside of the surfaces we touch.
A dust insecticide for cracks, crevices, and voids, such as electrical outlets and baseboards.
