Benefits of Heat Treatment
Pesticide treatment is commonly chosen by professionals and DIY enthusiasts. However, chemical treatments are often ineffective and result in an increased level of toxicity and exposure to pesticide poisoning. Over the years, bed bugs have grown increasingly resistant to pesticides. For example, some bed bugs can now withstand 1,000 times the amount of pesticide than they could 10 years ago. Imagine the eco-contamination and toxicity that occurs from generously treating these hitchhiking pests with chemicals. With chemical treatments, you may unnecessarily harm the environment, loved-ones, and pets; and still not eliminate the infestation.
Heat treatments can be used alone for bed bug control; i.e. it is not necessary to incorporate chemicals or other remedies into your treatment plan. Only one heat treatment is necessary per space, eliminating the infestation therein almost immediately.
