Our Bed Bug Heat Treatment Explained

Heat treatment for bed bugs involves several steps:

  • Identifying the bed bug infestation
  • Arranging the heaters and sensors
  • Increasing the temperature in the infested area
  • Applying an insecticide in case of a severe infestation

First, we locate the infested areas, assess the level of infestation, apply 180°C Steam to reduce the bed bugs to a minimum, and set up the heaters and the sensors.

The heaters gradually increase the room’s temperature. Adult bed bugs begin to perish when temperatures reach about 48 degrees Celsius.

We persistently raise the temperature over several hours to ensure the complete eradication of all live bed bugs and their eggs.

Following the initial heat, we may recommend additional chemical spraying in case of a severe infestation. The chemical barrier can last for several weeks, ensuring any survivors will be exterminated.

Bed bugs also leave traces. You might find reddish stains on cushions and bedding where the bugs have been crushed. Dark spots could indicate their excrement. Eggs, nymphs, and live bed bugs might be visible in their hiding spots.

Bed bugs often conceal themselves in corners and crevices, such as the seams of couch and chair cushions. They might also hide in curtains, carpet edges, and piles of clothes or laundry.

Ignoring these signs can lead to a more severe infestation, potentially requiring repeated treatments and increasing the cost of removal from your residential or commercial property.

Heat treatment is one of the fastest and most effective bed bug extermination methods. It works swiftly, allowing you to tackle the problem before it escalates.

Using heat treatment also ensures quicker results and fewer chemicals. While insecticides require weeks to provide results, in nearly 100% of the cases, the heat treatment provides complete eradication in hours.

    How to Prepare for Bed Bug Heat Treatment?

    Here are some steps you can take to facilitate our pest control technicians’ work and enhance the success of the treatment:

    • Declutter the infested area
    • Vacuum and sweep all flooring
    • Remove and clean all bedding in the infested area
    • Remove heat-sensitive objects

    For optimal results, declutter the infested areas as much as possible. Carry all electronics with batteries, books, toys, and other objects that the heat treatment could damage out of the room.

    Remove and clean the bedding and thoroughly vacuum or sweep the floors in the infested areas. We recommend moving all furniture at least one metre away from the walls and opening drawers and cabinets while leaving all clothes and linens in place.

    We also suggest that you increase the heat in your home to its maximum setting for about two hours before the treatment begins. This step can significantly reduce the time needed for the treatment to work. Our exterminator will address any additional recommendations or concerns they identify before the procedure begins, ensuring a thorough and effective bed bug heat treatment.

    How Long Does It Take to Get Rid of Bed Bugs?

    While the infestation is typically eliminated almost immediately, a few bed bugs may persist in some cases. However, within two to three weeks, your home or business should be completely free of bed bugs.

    Signs That You Need Bed Bug Heat Treatment

    Bed bugs are primarily active when their host is asleep, making them hard to detect. However, you might observe some of these signs indicating a bed bug infestation:

    • Bite marks
    • Reddish stains
    • Dark spots
    • Eggs
    • Shed exoskeletons
    • Live bed bugs

    Bite marks may first indicate the presence of bed bugs. While itchy, red welts on your skin are a common sign, it’s important to note that around 40% of people worldwide exhibit a mild or no reaction to bites. We recommend a thorough inspection to aid in early detection.

    Look for reddish stains on bedding or furniture where bed bugs may have been crushed. Dark spots could be their excrement. Additionally, eggs, nymphs (young bed bugs), or even live adults can be found in areas where they hide, such as mattress seams, box springs, and furniture cracks.

    Bed bugs often conceal themselves in corners and crevices, such as the seams of couch and chair cushions. They might also hide in curtains, carpet edges, and piles of clothes or laundry.
    Ignoring these signs can lead to a more severe infestation, potentially requiring repeated treatments and increasing the cost of removal from your residential or commercial property.
