Regardless of what you know about bed bugs, you likely know they are a resilient bunch. And, it seems as time goes on, these pests are only growing more resilient. They are no longer vulnerable to traditional pesticides and chemicals that once used to be effective at eradicating them. This is unfortunate and has raised the need for more innovative, effective solutions. This is where the thermal heat treatment comes in.
If you’ve been doing any research on bed bugs or bed bug treatments, you’ve no doubt heard some kind of talk about heat treatments today. This is because they have proven effective and are only growing more and more in popularity as time goes on. Of course, that doesn’t mean you should just blindly run out and book a thermal heat treatment for your property. It might not even be the best option for your infestation. No, first, you should learn as much as you possibly can in as little time possible about heat treatments. This is where you’ll want to get your start!
Understanding The Thermal Heat Treatment
In theory, thermal heat treatment is a simple process. In actuality, it is fairly complex. That being covered, it involves bringing in special equipment on the property to raise the temperature above 140 degrees F. As you can likely imagine when bed bugs are exposed to these kinds of extreme temperatures they simply cannot survive. Their bodies dry out and their organ shut down. In a nutshell, that’s how steam treatments work.
The More Effective Solution
When you do business with a quality pest management company like ours there’s isn’t much you have to worry about. This is because all our work is guaranteed. Regardless, there are some solutions and options more effective than others. When it comes to efficiency, you simply cannot beat the heat treatment. It is without a doubt one of the most effective solutions for bed bug elimination. There are several reasons for this.
One reason for this is that it penetrates behind walls, in cracks and crevices, and pretty much anywhere on the property. If there are bed bugs in the home when a heat treatment is conducted right, they simply will not survive. In addition to all this, thermal heat treatments performed right kill bed bugs at all stages. Adults, nymphs, or eggs, the heat treatment will eradicate them all. There are exceptions to this. The treatment must be performed right.
Properly Monitoring The Heat In The Home
There are no two ways to go about it, heat treatments are the most effective solution available today for bed bug elimination. However, they must be performed correctly to be effective. The heat in the home must remain above 140 degrees F for 90 minutes or more. If there are too many fluctuations or the heat drops completely, the treatment will not work.
This is why we go a step above with our heat treatments. We not only bring in specialized equipment to raise the temperature in the home, but we bring in special monitors to monitor that heat. These monitors will ensure that the temperature in the home is maintained at a steady 140 degrees F. At any point, if it drops, there will be an alarm sounded and our techs can make the necessary adjustments. Steady exposure to these temperatures is key to successful thermal heat treatment.
You’ll also want to do what you can to prevent the bugs from escaping the property during treatment. This is because there are no residual effects with thermal heat. What this means is, if bugs aren’t killed right then and there, they will survive. Pesticides and chemicals usually leave behind lingering effects that will kill bugs when they are exposed to them later. This is why residents usually have to stay away from the property for a few hours or days after treatment. That’s not the case with heat treatments, but it also means that residents can immediately come right back on the property after treatment is administered. So, there are always two sides to the coin.
Evacuating The Property During Treatment
Residents might be able to come right back in after heat treatments without the worry of ill side effects. They, however, will not be able to remain in the home during treatment. Indeed, most people sit in saunas exposed to the extreme temperatures of heat, but they are never usually exposed to them for more than a few minutes at most. Heat treatments usually give off this type of heat for 2 hours or more.
Also, it might be possible that some items have to be removed from the property. Anything that might be sensitive to these temperatures will need to be removed. Luckily, these are all things our techs can handle. While assessing the property, we’ll let you know what can and cannot be removed. We can even remove some of the items for you if necessary.
We are here to help every and any way we can. All you have to do is get in touch with our Houston offices and we’ll get someone out there to assess the property. It’ll usually be within the next 24 to 48 hours, but we do have emergency services available for those that find themselves in need.
