We get a lot of customers and people in general asking us, why we don’t offer heat treatments? So, sometimes people hang up the phone when we tell them we don’t offer heat treatments and most customers tell us, the internet says it’s the only way to kill bed bugs. We usually ” sai ” and then explained to them why that’s not true.
When referring to Bed bug heat treatments we need to be clear. We don’t offer heat treatment when it comes to bringing large gas or electric powered heaters near or in your home. Bring the temperature up to between 122° to 140°.
Now that’s out of the way here’s the reasons why we don’t use it We don’t offer that kind of bed bug heat treatment.
First of all we found out that heat treatment is not work in all situations. This application is great for if you have a home or downstairs apartment but in our line of work we have found that bed bugs can be found in all kinds of places like cars RVs and even in the back of semi trucks. And heat treatments get kind of complicated when you have to lug equipment upstairs or can’t even get large weight equipment in small or old building .
Second the liability of heat treatments, if something goes wrong so every pest control company will tell you how successful their heat treatments are but they will never tell you the failures or the damage that a heat treatment can possibly cause. When I say failure I don’t mean that it didn’t work i mean that you killed all the bedbugs, but yet your TV or laptop is now ruined or even in some cases where the house has caught on fire but they were able to put it out before anything got out of control. This is a problem we’d rather not have to deal with.
And third of all, how dependable is a heat treatment. Every company that offers heat treatment also does a chemical treatment after the heat treatment is done. Most companies offer a chemical treatment after the heat treatment is done because a factor they like to call ” just in case ” (lol) . Don’t get me wrong heat definitely can kill bed bugs but heating your home to 122 degrees will kill all kinds of bugs. Also heat cannot penetrate through structures or inside wall void bed bugs can be potentially hiding in. Bed bugs don’t just hide in bed they can possibly hide in wall void, behind baseboards inside dressers etc. Moving a mattress around a few times while in 122° Will definitely bed bugs and there eggs but what happens if a bed bugs laid eggs inside a wall void after the heat has been applied Well a couple days or weeks later you could possibly have another bed bug infestation. This is why a chemical treatment is sometimes applied after heat treatment.
So if that chemical treatment is able to kill bed bugs and there eggs days or weeks later why is it not strong enough to kill on the first application or the only application? Well it is strong enough!
Furthermore Tulsa bed bugs Specialists has been studying the biology and chemistry and behavior of bed bugs for years to come up with a method that is 100% effective and safe on killing bed bugs in any type of situation.
