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.
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.
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:
