    To add, these chemicals and pesticides themselves are toxic and hurt the environment.

    The heat treatment for the extermination of bed bugs is highly effective and efficient as it can eliminate bugs the same rate at which chemical extermination does and even more.

Cons of Heat Treatment

With the nice and amazing qualities that heat treatment for bed bugs have to offer, this method still has some shortcomings. The shortcomings of this way of exterminating bed bugs are:

  • Heat Alone is Not Enough:

    The administration of heat in the home or business may not be enough to kill and fully exterminate the bed bugs. The addition of pesticides to the heat treatment will make it more efficient and effective as the heat application alone is not enough to properly take care of the infestation.

  • The Size of the Space Matters:

    Space of your home matters to determine the efficiency of the heat treatment. Although most pest control companies provide heat treatment for your entire home, it is not always best since the heat may not evenly reach all bed bugs. A full house treatment will be suitable for a small space.

  • Bed Bug Bounce Back:

    Heat treatment lowers the activities of bed bugs but without proper monitoring and administration, the undetected bed bugs may resurface after the heat treatment and multiply in their numbers.

    The heat treatment does not provide residual effects and the bed bugs that survive the heat treatment can be reintroduced hours later.

  • All Surfaces are Not Equal:

    Materials that have the ability to absorb heat also have the tendency to reduce the efficiency of the heat treatment in the house. Concrete surfaces for example, absorb more heat making other areas of the home produce cold spots. Therefore, there is a tendency of the existence of bed bugs even after heat treatment

Great service! We bought a new house and the realtor recommended to us to go with Pesticon. They came and did a very thorough inspection. They took care of our numerous insect problems while they were here. The crews were professional, courteous, and cleaned everything up after they left. Thank you so much!!

Just wanted to let you know that we're very pleased with the way Pest Control Services has treated us. We've been dealing with cockroaches for a while now, and have tried many different companies. They were the only ones who could actually get rid of them. We've used them for several months now, and they're still working away on our problem! It's great to know that there are still people out there who care about their customers' satisfaction. I will definitely be using your services again in the future if necessary.
