Bed Bug heat treatment is perhaps one of the best ways to completely exterminate bedbugs from a home or apartment. During this treatment process, a professional team will expose the infected areas to temperatures of 120 F and above, which is usually the maximum temperature required to kill all bedbugs in a home. This treatment process also destroys whatever eggs may be left behind by the bugs, so that they cannot reproduce again. While bedbug heat treatment can be used effectively on homes and apartments, it is also possible to apply heat treatment on privately owned properties. In both cases, the treatment process should be done by a licensed professional to prevent accidents.
When applying bed bug heat treatments to a home or apartment, it is important to hire a pest management professional. These specialists are typically trained in a variety of pest control techniques, including heat treatments and chemical sprays. It is important to let the pest management professional to know what type of infestation exists before beginning any treatment process. A complete inventory of the rooms in the property should be taken, including how many bedbugs are visible and how many may be inside the walls. It is also important to work with a pest management professional that understands the methods of extermination that are necessary for each case.
The most common method of bed bug heat treatments are usually applied using heat treatments with specially designed applicators that spray warm water or with a high pressure jet of water on the suspected locations. Specialized tumblers are then used to apply the treatments to the walls and ceilings, depending on the severity of the infestation. Bed Bug Heat Treatment can be done in several hours or, in some cases, up to seven days. In the initial application of heat treatments, the professional will usually use chemicals that kill adult bugs and eggs as well as any larvae that are within the vicinity. The chemicals will often need to be applied several hours or a day to achieve the desired results.
Chemical sprays are also used in bed bug heat treatment. The chemicals are applied to the suspected areas but will not kill or damage the bugs or their eggs. The sprays will only be effective if they are used in combination with heat treatments and by using certified pest control professionals. If the bugs are allowed to build up in an area for too long, the chemicals can actually harm the people in the home rather than kill the bugs.
Bed Bug Heat Treatment will typically be more effective if the treatment is carried out over several days rather than one application. Applying treatments to an entire building or even an apartment complex can prove to be a very difficult and time-consuming process for a pest control professional. This is why it is often suggested that infestations are treated over several months. If the bed bugs are left to grow naturally, then it may be possible to eradicate them, but with the use of modern pest control techniques, this may not always be possible.
A qualified pest management professional should be consulted if the infestation is believed to be large. Some of the larger infestations could have taken years to discover, and it could take many treatments to completely eradicate an infestation. In the case of large infestations, it is often necessary to contact a pest management professional to remove the bed bug heat treatment from the home. It is possible that there could be many eggs within a home, and without the heat treatment, these eggs could hatch and release eggs, which would cause a new infestation. It is also possible that a couple of bugs could be living in a home, without being detected by a heat treatment. If left unchecked, an infestation could continue to spread, and could result in greater loss of property than was initially expected.
