Bed Bug Heat Treatments London Essex Herts and Kent

Updated: Oct 8, 2020

You may have seen bed bugs feature in media reports and blogs. They are an ever-present threat in the pest control field and many people do not realise how prevalent they are.

One of the most effective methods that a pest control company can deploy is bed bug heat treatments. This treatment is regarded as being a more comprehensive way of eradicating bed bugs in the long-term. In a cities such as London, Essex, Herts & Kent, the chances of coming into contact with bed bugs are increased, so investing in this treatment has a longer-term benefit.

Why choose heat treatments?

Bed bugs are amongst the most difficult pests to treat due to their nature and their resistance to insecticide treatments. They are also known to hide in darker and more concealed spots where it is difficult for them to be seen. They are good travellers and bed bugs have been found on public transport seats, cinemas, theatres, in hotels and even airplanes, not necessarily something you want to be thinking about when catching the bus or train, or even when you are watching a film or show, down to going on your holiday.

It is more practical to use a heat treatment as it is less reliant on locating a specific spot to find bed bugs. With this in mind, it is perhaps best to explain how heat treatments actually work.

How do bed bugs heat treatments work?

By using a complex system of heaters and sensors, heat treatments work gradually and methodically to heat a room to a certain temperature.Our industrial heaters are discreet and easy to set up for the treatment. The heat treatment system is a “closed” system which means it recycles the heated air inside the building, through the intake port, over the heating coils, and out into the treatment area. Each time air passes through the heater it imparts more energy into the air, therefore producing higher temperatures. Our industrial heaters have thermal regulator switches which can be set to the exact temperatures required. We can set up your treatment area, close the door and check on the treatment on a regular basis, we monitor the heat levels remotely through our Wifi heat sensor technology for each area (room). When properly applied, our Heaters consistently provide a 100% kill, 100% of the time, every time. Modern bed bug populations are highly resistant to the insecticides used for their control. Heat is known to be a very effective insect or Bed bug eradicator and it can be used in many different ways to treat infestations.

How long does the heat treatment process take? 

Depending on the size of the room and the materials present, a course of heat treatment can vary in length. What is certain is that once the heat treatment has been applied, there should be no need for follow-up sessions.

A professional pest control company will provide the necessary equipment and knowledge to apply the heat treatment. Any pre-assessment of treatment will include a time-frame, so you’ll be given all the information you need in advance.
