913 378-8899

Some of our latest victories in the battle of the Bed Bugs in Kansas City. Watch these little bugs succumb to the heat with KC Pest Away’s bed bug heat treatment.

Our proven system eliminates all stages including the eggs!  No other system does what KC Pest Away’s does in just 1 day!  With KC Pest Away, you will sleep tight with no Bed Bugs left to bite!

Bed bugs have become a problem in the Kansas City Area in recent years.  Once eliminated nearly 100%, bed bugs haven’t been a problem for many years.  Traditional methods of control and elimination with the use of pesticides have proven unsuccessful.  Even the most advanced insecticides used in our industry today have had little effect on today’s bed bugs.  In addition, treating areas where bed bugs live – with chemicals, means using chemicals on our beds, couches, and other furniture and surfaces where you likely spend quite a bit of time.  Although today’s chemicals have a relative low toxicity, they really aren’t meant to be slept on or sat on.  We do generally use chemicals on our treatments however, the chemicals are not the primary means of control. Rather, the chemicals are a supplement to the heat treatment. As a supplement, we don’t have to use nearly as much product and we can keep the chemicals off of all soft furniture, keeping you and your family safe from exposure.

KC Pest Away utilizes clean, safe heat to rid your space of bed bugs.  Even if we had chemicals that were effective, we would never get the chemicals to all the places that we can get heat.  The heat will penetrate furniture, flooring, walls, and personal belongings.  With using heat for a long enough time at the correct temperatures, it creates an environment where there is no place left to hide, resulting in complete elimination.

Bed Bugs in Kansas

Kansas was once known as the “Land of Oz” however in today’s time if you follow the yellow brick road in Kansas, you might just find bed bugs.  Previously thought to be nearly extinct, bed bugs have resurged and are quite comfortable in Kansas.  In the last 5 years we have had at least a 300% increase in calls regarding bed bugs in Kansas.  First in hotels, apartments, and shelters, and now add in duplexes and single family homes as well as hospitals, libraries, tour buses, movie theaters, and just about any place that humans gather and spend at least a couple hours in any one place.

The adult bed bug is about the size and shape of an apple seed with a reddish brown color.  A single female can produce approximately 300 offspring in as little as 6 months and most infestations take 6 months to be visually apparent.  The eggs are very small white or translucent in color and are stuck to the surface by means of a glue like substance that the female covers the eggs in.  The eggs are much more difficult to spot, therefore will require more diligence when inspecting furniture and belongings.

Since DDT was banned as an insecticide, our modern insecticides don’t always do the trick on pyrethroid resistant bed bugs.  Pest Control Operators in Kansas are having an increasing difficult time controlling bed bugs with pesticides alone.  In Kansas City and the surrounding areas, we are 1 of only a handful of companies who have made a significant investment in beating these blood sucking creatures.  KC Pest Away is utilizing heat or thermal remediation to clear a property of the threating bed bugs.  During the thermal remediation process, we will bring in large heaters and raise the temperature to 135-140 degrees.  By raising the temperature we are saturating all contents with heat at or above the lethal 113 degrees for bed bugs.  Wall voids, cracks, crevices, box springs, mattresses, furniture, flooring, and other belongings all get exposed to these lethal temperatures.  We can now get 100% of the bed bugs including the eggs by employing this method.

Adult bed bugs. A pair of bedbugs can produce up to 600 offspring in a year! Using heat, we can eliminate the bugs and stop the cycle

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!

We are currently servicing the Greater Kansas City Area as well as the Lawrence, KS area.

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.

KC Pest Away will be happy to arrange a free on-site evaluation of your situation and plan a customized treatment plan that fits your needs.  Contact us today at 913 378-8899 or info@kcpestaway.com.
