At Schendel Pest Services, we realize that it is impossible to prevent bed bugs from infesting residential dwellings or commercial facilities and that nowadays consumers want to protect their homes and businesses without negatively impacting our environment. That is why we offer bed bug canine inspections and have developed our Bed Bug Heat Treatment Division. Designed to assist Midwestern property owners affected by the rising incidence of bed bug infestations throughout Kansas City, Wichita and all of Kansas, Missouri and Oklahoma, this method for eliminating bed bugs is environmentally friendly, yet highly effective. Schendel is the first pest control company in its markets to offer heat treatments for bed bugs.
Heat treatment is an innovative approach to the control of bed bugs. Our qualified bed bug exterminators utilize large electric heaters that they bring into a home, apartment or hotel/motel room and raise the temperature up to 120°F or higher for a period of 6-8 hours in order to effectively eliminate all stages of bed bug – eggs, young and adults. At Schendel Pest Services, our approach for bed bug removal combines heat treatment with the targeted application of approved insecticides, including sprays and dusts.
Bed bugs are small flat insects that are active mainly at night when they come out for feeding. During the day, they congregate in places that are extremely hard to treat with normal insecticides alone, Mattresses, box springs, upholstered furniture, TVs, computer and other furnishings are many likely spots to find bed bugs in homes or commercial lodgings. By heating the inside of a home, apartment or hotel room, we can eliminate bed bugs from all of their hiding places without disturbing furnishings or causing any damage and in most cases, the process takes less than a day.
Our Kansas pest control company has developed a unique strategy for getting rid of bed bugs in residential and commercial properties. We apply residual insecticides to the structural cracks and crevices that are likely to host the blood-sucking insects as well as the perimeter of a dwelling or room and under the edge of wall-to-wall carpeting and then follow that up with the use of our computer-monitored heaters. With fans circulating, we are able to evenly distribute the heat throughout the treatment area and reach all areas that bed bugs have infested. Our bed bug heat treatment specialists constantly monitor the temperature while the bed bug treatment is in progress, using remote temperature sensors and a reliable computer system and will periodically enter the treatment area to re-adjust our heaters and fans if necessary and may unfold blankets, linens and folded clothing so that “cool zones” are eliminated and the hot air reaches all parts of the treatment area. When the treatment is completed, the space that was treated is warm but otherwise safe to enter.
To schedule your bed bug heat treatment, please contact us. We’ll assess your bed bug infestation and provide a customized proposal that meets your needs. Trust Schendel to safely and effectively rid your home, apartment or commercial lodging of bed bugs.
"I am writing this letter to recognize your employee, C. David Resz. I have had the pleasure of working with David for about the last six months. I have found David to be extremely professional, knowledgeable, courteous and responsive. David responds quickly and appropriately to our needs. He has worked with me to understand our program and what requirements we have in place and why. He even goes as far as to alert me and our facility to potential issues outside of the pest control program (such as a flooding basement).
In addition, our pest control program has been recognized by several external auditors as being "outstanding". One auditor even said that he could tell that our pest control administrator really knew what he was doing and did excellent work.
We, at VVF, greatly appreciate David's contribution to our facility. We recognize that it is his dedication and hard work that solidify a key component of our Quality System.
