As bed bugs continue to plague our homes and businesses, KC Pest Away is fighting our way back with heat. Thermal remediation is not only clean and chemical free, but also it just takes hours not days or weeks to eliminate bed bugs. Research has indicated that bed bugs are becoming resistant to chemical treatments and the only reliable means of eradicating these pests is heat.
Just one pair of bed bugs can produce up to 600 offspring in a years time. With each additional bed bug in your home, it doesn’t take long for bed bugs to take control and gain the upper hand. Fortunately you have KC Pest Away on your side to bring the heat and rid your home or business of these blood suckers!
Bedbugs are attracted to the heat – thinking that a host is nearby. Once the bed bug makes it way out to investigate its too late. The lethal temperature is about 113 degrees F to all stages of bed bugs. By heating the entire room and contents to at least 125 degrees F and maintaining that temperature until the core of the contents and inside of the walls reach the lethal threshold we can ensure complete elimination of the bed bugs.
Traditional treatments include the use of strong and dangerous pesticides often times putting the host in direct or close contact to these chemicals. Chemicals were used as a primary means of control. Today, we use chemicals as a secondary means of control, utilizing much safer products with applications more specific resulting in fewer hazards for the occupants. Many times chemicals are not necessary when treating with heat.
