What is a heat treatment for bed bugs? Pest control is a complex, multistep process. Each type of pest has its own treatment methodology, and the fact is even each individual home and infestation should be approached in its own specific manner to ensure the most effective results.
When it comes to bed bugs, this is even more important. Since bed bugs often infest areas of the home in which traditional pesticide treatment may be unwanted or ineffective, more creative solutions must often be devised. One such treatment option, so-called heat treatments, can be very effective if used correctly.
So what are heat treatments? And how can they get rid of bed bugs?
One of the greatest weaknesses that bed bugs have is their inability to withstand major temperature variations. As such, it is possible to eliminate bed bugs in an area by raising the temperature to a point higher than they can withstand. Typically, this point is somewhere between 115-125 degrees Fahrenheit. There are different kinds of heat treatments based upon what you are treating, be it a home, luggage, or clothes and linens. We will discuss in a future article the details of each of these treatments, but the general focus of all heat treatments is to eliminate a bed bug infestation without having to resort to using pesticide treatments. This can be useful when dealing with infestations in sensitive areas or within valuable furniture, bags, or clothing. Heat treatments can be very effective because it ensures that you eradicate all of the bed bugs rather, however it is less practical with larger infestations due to its expense. While heat treatment may very well be the best option for your home, you should make sure that any pest company offering it is one that you trust as it is an expensive investment.
