Bed Bug Remediation

Heat vs. Pesticides

bed bug solutionApplying high heat is a more effective method to terminate a bed bug infestation in comparison to using chemical applications alone. Bed bugs are more resistant than ever to insecticides, meaning chemicals may not be able to kill all insect life stages resulting in remaining live bed bugs post-treatment. Whereas, bed bugs simply cannot survive at extreme temperatures making heat a better treatment option. Truly Nolen uses a combined method of using heat and liquid treatments to eliminate bed bug infestations.

Truly Nolen’s Equipment

Thermal Remediation® heaters gradually increase the interior of a space up to a lethal temperature of 120-135°F (49-57°C). Bed bugs and stored product pests of all life stages are physically unable to survive when exposed to extreme heat for an extended period of time. Once lethal temperatures are reached, custom designed high temperature fans then evenly circulate the heated air throughout the area being treated ensuring challenging spots, such as cracks and crevices, are reached.

Strategically placed temperature sensors are remotely monitored to ensure all areas are achieving the required insect temperature “kill zone”. Technicians are able to remotely monitor temperature sensors on a computer up to 800 feet away from the treatment area. This computer provides a detailed temperature overview report, which is automatically generated at the conclusion of the treatment.

Insect heat treatment is effective when a controlled application process is followed which involves the introduction of heat, airflow management and close monitoring.

Did you know?

  • Bed bugs are most active at night and can move very fast.
  • The pests like to feed on the head, neck or upper body of a host.
  • They are particularly fond of humans and can be drawn by body temperature, natural body odor or the carbon dioxide emitted by a person.
  • A bed bug injects an anesthetic into a host when it bites, which is why people don’t realise they have been bitten.
  • It can take up to 14 days for a bite mark to appear.
