Benefits

Chemical pesticides, such as Methyl Bromide and other toxic fumigants are potentially harmful to people, pets and our environment. Worse yet, chemical pesticides are losing their effectiveness as pests, including bedbugs, are building up resistance to the most commonly used treatments. But there is a better, safer, more effective way to eliminate pests completely.

The use of heat in pest eradication is not a new concept. Since the early 1900's, heat has been used as an effective strategy to kill all life stages of insects from eggs to adults. Today, as other chemicals become less appealing, heat treatments are gaining popularity and recognition as a viable and safe alternative to chemicals and fumigants. The use of heat involves safely raising the temperatures in an infested area to a level that is lethal to all insects. Heat treatment is a proven non-chemical method of eradicating all life stages of insects from eggs, larva to adults. Unlike many chemical pesticides such as Methyl Bromide, heat treatments will penetrate and force heat into all of the harborages and kill insects where they reside.

Some of the specific advantages of the pest-heat system are:

  • Heat is non-toxic and environmentally friendly
  • Heat allows shorter treatment times and decreased down time, resulting in higher productivity
  • Heat treatments can be done in "zones," treating only the infested areas. Untreated areas may remain operational
  • Kills all the life stages from eggs to adults
  • Allows personnel to walk through the treated area and inspect the process
  • Works in all weather conditions and can penetrate into areas where chemicals and fumigants cannot

If you're looking for a safe, highly effective, tested and proven way for eradicating all life stages of insects without the use of chemicals, then Pest-Heat is your answer.

How does the pest-heat system work?

The Pest-Heat treatment process delivers controlled, evenly distributed heat throughout a structure for several hours with high volumes of air movement while recording and monitoring temperatures. During a typical heat treatment process, internal temperatures are slowly raised in the space to a target temperature of 120°F to 140°F and then held for several hours. Achieving this temperature in the cracks, crevices, and hard-to-reach places is necessary for the heat to effectively penetrate and kill the entire life cycle of bedbugs, stink bugs, termites and other insects from eggs to adults. Temperatures are then consistently monitored and recorded remotely from numerous temperature sensors placed strategically throughout the room.

This safe, chemical free approach is the most efficient and environmentally friendly heat treatment method for insect eradication.

The Pest-Heat process relies on three key components to ensure a successful heat treatment:

  • Heat: Our custom-designed, portable electric or propane forced-air heaters deliver high volumes of heat. The heaters are placed within the targeted area, introducing and re-circulating heated air for maximum efficiency.
  • Airflow: Portable fans with high temperature and high CFM, variable speeds and low amp draw are utilized to distribute the heated air evenly throughout the space and target high infestation zones.
  • Monitoring: Probes and sensors are used to track the heating progress and to ensure proper heat penetration in all places where bugs can take refuge. The system allows heat to penetrate behind cracks and into crevices, ensuring that pest eradication is a complete success.
