Bed bug infestations are among the most difficult to eradicate, especially for moderate to severe cases. Fortunately, Detroit residents have other alternatives, including thermal heat.
Bed Bug Thermal Heat Treatment – How Does It Work?
As mentioned previously, moderate- and severe-bed bug infestations require extensive measures to fully eradicate. One such treatment involves thermal heat, which utilizes high temperatures to eradicate bed bugs in all stages.
Temperatures 140 degrees Fahrenheit and higher are required for this process. The bed bugs must be exposed to high temperatures for at least 20 minutes to work properly and effectively.
If you are familiar with bed bugs, you know they are extremely difficult to detect because they are small and prefer to stay out of sight as much as possible.
Thermal heat, on the other hand, penetrates through tiny crevices and cracks. While not a direct bed bug treatment, thermal heat permeates crevices until it reaches the colony of bed bugs.
When applied properly, thermal heat poses no risks to the home’s occupants and pets, as well as furniture and other assets.
Thermal Heat – Most Effective Treatment For Eradicating Bed Bug Infestations
Thermal heat has been described by many of Detroit’s licensed exterminators as the “most effective treatment” for eradicating bed bug infestations.
Eradicating bed bugs with thermal heat works because it negatively impacts the bed bug colony. Once the heat reaches 140 degrees Fahrenheit, the bed bug colony begins to feel the impact. Without 20 minutes or less, the entire bed bug colony will be eradicated.
Thermal Heat Bed Bug Monitoring
Exterminators are trained to monitor the success of each thermal heat bed bug treatment. These experts are looking for signs that show the entire colony is no longer viable. Most exterminators administer the thermal heat treatment over a 2-hour period. While this seems a bit excessive, Detroit exterminators believe it is necessary to ensure the full effectiveness of the treatment.
Thermal heat penetrates furniture, flooring, walls, floorboards, mattresses, box springs, and carpet. It will continue to penetrate through layers and layers of material until it reaches the bed bug colony, at which time, it will begin to work its magic.
Pre-Treatment Home Evacuation Procedures
Before thermal heat can be administered in the home, the occupants must evacuate. In most cases, the exterminator will request the occupants to vacate the home several hours in advance. The entire treatment takes between two and four hours, depending on the size of the home.
Once the home is vacated, the thermal heat treatment begins. Heaters, fans, and flex duct are utilized to push the high-temperature heat into the home. In severe bed bug treatments, the entire home may be treated with thermal heat. However, the level of treatment will be decided by the exterminator in advance.
Most Detroit exterminators recommend thermal heat for bed bug infestations of all severity levels. It is guaranteed effective in all cases. Your exterminator will help you customize a thermal heat bed bug treatment specifically for your home.
