When it comes to your home and your comfort, there’s little worse than having bed bugs. Bed bugs feed on human blood and want nothing more than to find a way to bite you. Just as bad, once you realize you do, or may, have them in your home, you’ll find you can’t get comfortable because every little itch makes your skin crawl.
We know exactly how it is – at AZEX Pest, we help home and business owners eliminate these horrid little critters every day, so we know exactly how it feels to have them, and how good it feels to know you’ve eliminated them.
If you have bed bugs, or a suspicion you have them, you’ll want to know exactly what we do to eliminate bed bugs every time. Read on to find out!
The Power of Heat Treatments
Heat is a formidable enemy of bed bugs, a fact we utilize to the fullest by treating bed bugs with heat. These resilient pests, often resistant to conventional pest control, cannot withstand high temperatures. By elevating the temperature in your home, we directly target these unwelcome guests without compromising the safety of your living space.
Bed bugs, regardless of their life stage, succumb to temperatures over 113°F. We meticulously heat each room to this specific temperature, ensuring a thorough elimination of bed bugs, from sneaky eggs to elusive adults.
Why You’ll Love Heat Treatments as Much as We Do
- Speed and Efficiency: Our process is not just efficient, it’s also convenient. The room or area is heated up to 113F and then sustained for at least 1 hour. After an hour at that temperature, any bed bugs (and any other insects or pests) will be dead.
- Non-Toxic Approach: We take pride in our chemical-free methodology. This not only makes our process safe for homes with children and pets but also for anyone who prefers an environmentally friendly solution. With no chemicals, you don’t need to worry about any toxicity.
- Comprehensive Reach: Bed bugs are champions at hiding in the smallest crevices. Besides resistance to pesticides, this is the biggest reason why conventional chemical treatments so often prove ineffective. Our heat treatment ensures thorough penetration into these hard-to-reach areas, leaving no hiding place safe for bed bugs (or any other pests!).
Our Treatment Process
Inspection: Our approach begins with a detailed inspection and then preparation of your home. We’ll inspect your home and then ask that you remove any items that may be sensitive to heat, such as food and makeup, candles, and aerosols. This step is crucial to ensure the safety of your belongings while maximizing the effectiveness of the treatment.
Treatment: Once your home is prepped, we introduce our specialized heating equipment. Each heater is strategically placed to ensure even distribution of heat throughout the room. We meticulously monitor the temperature, ensuring it reaches and maintains at least 113°F for a minimum of one hour. This duration is critical to penetrate all potential bed bug hiding spots and eradicate them at every stage of their life cycle.
Aftercare: After the heat treatment, we conduct a thorough inspection to confirm the elimination of bed bugs. Finally, our experts provide you with tips and strategies to prevent future infestations, ensuring your home remains bed bug-free.
