Bed Bug Extermination
If you suspect you have bed bugs, call Truly Nolen.
A Combination Of Effective Treatments Provides Guaranteed Results.
Our first step is heat treatment. It is proven that bed bugs cannot survive sustained temperatures between 120-135 degress F. These temperatures will kill all bed bugs at all life stages, making heat treatment the most effective way to kill bed bugs.
What makes bed bugs so difficult to treat is their ability to hide anywhere in your home. They can be in closets, walls, clothes, stuffed animals, games, furniture, carpeting and of course, your mattress. No pest control company can effectively treat all of those areas in your home with chemicals. These chemicals are also not labeled for such uses.
That's why heat is best, bed bugs can't hide from heat. Without heat, you are left with a lengthy battle against bed bugs. The battle starts with wrapping furniture, cleaning carpets, dry cleaning clothes, throwing away stuffed animals, board games and anything else a bed bug can hide in. You will also need to move fast because of how quickly they reproduce.
Because no treatment alone is 100% effective against bed bugs, we don't stop after heat is applied. Next, Truly Nolen will lay down a barrier treatment that will kill surviving bed bugs when they come out of hiding for food. We also apply a dust treatment into voids where the beg bugs are likely to hide. Lastly, we use a special vacuum to remove the bed bugs, their eggs and the skins they shed your home. It is not likely bed bugs will survive heat, but again, because of how quickly they reproduce it is essential to get them ALL at once.
With this combination of treatments, you go to work in the morning and when you return home that evening, your bed bug problem is GONE!
Truly Nolen’s Equipment
Thermal Remediation® heaters gradually increase the interior temperature to 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 temperature. Technicians 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. Call us now to schedule a time at your convenience.
Truly Nolen's Guarantee
Because bed bugs are brought into an environment by humans rather than pressures from the outside like all other insects, no pest control company can guarantee that you will not have a re-infestation. We do guarantee that we will eliminate your current infestation. Here's how it works. Following the initial treatment, we schedule 2 additional inspection visits. One after 2 weeks and one after 4 weeks. If any bed bugs are found, we will retreat at no additional charge to you.
