Our Bed Bug Treatments
Using a Heat Treatment and Spray Treatment process together is an industry proven technique to remove Bed Bugs and will also treat other pests, such as Moths, Cockroaches, Fleas and Woodworm or Wood Boring Insects.
Many pest control measures can leave a false sense of security when it comes to fighting bed bugs and with some spray and fog treatments, bed bugs can just lay low for a while before they resurface to feed again, which results in you requiring further costly treatments.
Heat Treatments though, reach areas in your bedroom/s that pesticide sprays and fog cannot reach.
The Achilles heel of bed bugs is heat
Once you expose bed bugs to 48 degrees centigrade or hotter both the bugs and eggs die very rapidly (less than a minute). All stages of a bed bug’s life cycle die when they overheat.
Bed bugs can also potentially be insecticide resistant if they have been exposed to pesticides during their growth cycles. A bed bug sheds their cuticle (skin) five times during their growth and the new cuticle can become resistant to pesticides. This process could have occurred at the place that you visited that had the contamination.
