Heat is an important tool to use in ridding your place of bedbugs. With the Heat treatment we will kill not only the adult bedbugs, but all stages of the bedbug life cycle including the eggs. The air is heated in the treatment area, the heat from the air is transferred into the contents and building materials of the space to the correct temperature and held there for several hours. This means the bedbugs will be eradicated from your place with our service. Bedbugs will not develop a resistance to heat as they do to chemicals. Once you understand how the bedbugs were brought into your home; you can be assured that you will reduce your chances of having an issue with bedbugs again.
Bedbug Heat Treatment Process
Have you recently stayed at a friends or hotel on a trip? Are you seeing bites on your body when you wake up in the mornings?
You may have brought home some pesky bed bugs.
Bed bugs are parasitic insects of the cimicid family that feed exclusively on blood. The common bed bug, is the best known as it prefers to feed on human blood. The name bed bug derives from the preferred habitat of Cimex lectularius: warm houses and especially near or inside beds and bedding or other sleep areas.
Bed bugs are mainly active at night, but are not exclusively nocturnal. They usually feed on their hosts without being noticed. A number of adverse health effects may result from bed bug bites, including skin rashes, psychological effects, and allergic symptoms.
Bed bugs are not known to transmit any pathogens as disease vectors.
Adult bed bugs are light brown to reddish-brown, flattened, oval-shaped. Newly hatched nymphs are translucent, lighter in color, and become browner as they moult and reach maturity. The lifespan of bed bugs varies by species and is also dependent on feeding.
