Heat treatment is becoming more and more popular when tackling the common pest problem of bedbugs, but what exactly can you expect from heat treatment, does it work and how effective can it be?
Heat treatment for bedbugs has been proven to have one of the highest rates of successful eradication in pest control and is one of the best ways to completely get rid of your bedbug infestation.
So, what is involved in bedbug heat treatment?
Bed bug heat treatment is a pest control method that will use high temperatures combined with specialist equipment to administer heat within a property to completely destroy bed bugs and their eggs all over your home, not just to specific areas. This heated equipment will reach an extremely high temperature, which means all furniture and perishables will need to be removed from the house before heat treatment can commence.
Removing all of furniture and perishables is the key part to heat treatment that puts people off and with good reason, if you can’t guarantee that you can remove all perishables or live in a cluttered home, this makes the treatment much more difficult, but again depends on the level of infestation you are dealing with in your home, as to whether it is worth packing up your furniture for.
Can Bed Bugs Survive After Heat Treatment?
If the treatment is carried out correctly and professionally by an experienced pest control company, there is no reason why heat treatment can’t successfully eradicate most if not all of the bedbugs and their eggs in your home.
The results are likely to be dependant on the size of your infestation and the areas that can be covered in your home, but as touched on above, heat treatment is one of the most, if not the most, successful way to eradicate large bedbug infestations.
