Bed Bug Heat Treatments
Designed to assist property owners affected by the rising incidence of bed bug infestations
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 heat treatments. This method for eliminating bed bugs is environmentally friendly, yet extremely effective. Schendel is the first pest control company in its market to offer heat treatment for bed bug control.
What Is Heat Treatment?
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 up to 4 hours in order to effectively eliminate all stages of bed bug – eggs, young and adults. This process can take up to 6-8 hours for treatment. At Schendel Pest Services, our approach for bed bug removal combines heat treatment with the targeted application of approved insecticides, including sprays and dusts.
Why Heat Treatment For Bed Bugs?
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.
How Does It Work?
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.
