This method uses electric fed heaters or Indirect Fired Oil Burners due to propane restrictions in major cities like New York City and many Towns and Counties in NJ, allowing us to heat treat entire apartments to entire buildings eliminating ALL bed bugs in a relatively short amount of time (24 hours or less). We use the Temp-Air System and were one of the first vendors in New York City to employ this process.
Is heat the most effective bed bug treatment? Bed Bug Heat Treatment is the most effective way or how to kill bed bugs efficiently without major disruption. Compared to a chemical program (3-5 weeks) Bed Bug Heat Treatment is much faster. Also in comparison, we are using hot air as the insecticide which is much safer and also more effective as heat does not scatter populations of bedbugs and kills all the Bed Bugs present. It also completely eliminates eggs which are the most difficult aspect of extermination. A3 Superior has been providing NYC bed bug heat treatment to the NY metro area since 2007 making us one of the most experienced companies providing thermal remediation. Can bed bugs survive heat treatment? No. Unless they are in an area not exposed to the heat.
We warranty our work for up to a year (extra charges apply) (and provide all-inclusive service including standard preparation, barrier treatment-inclusive, and pipe chases, warranty, follow-up canine inspection to provide clearance and tactical support so that our clients are properly prepared and ready. We use a wireless sensor system to monitor temperatures, a FLIR gun to ensure wall voids are at proper levels for insect death and fans to distribute and “heat load” thicker, harder-to-treat items such as stuffed couches, chairs, mattresses, and box springs. Nothing needs be thrown away as most items can be safely treated. Some items such as oil painting, glued art should be taken care of with alternative methods and for high-value artwork, in some cases, we recommend fumigation services.
Bed bug heat treatment costs can be kept quite low in most cases when taking all factors into account. In fact, the overall investment when you add up your personal time, dry cleaning expenses of suits and dresses, replacing items that are infested such as box springs and couches make the use of heat treatment to get rid of bed bugs a much more attractive and less expensive option than a traditional chemical program.
Now not all homes qualify for this type of service. If there are surrounding units that are infested or if you have someone that stays at your residence that is coming from an infested area the use of heat may not be the best option. But at least you have a choice between heat and chemical. In some cases, you are better off leaving behind a chemical residual if there is the probability of further bed bug exposure. This is because although residual products do have limited uptake due to the tight exoskeleton of Cimex Lectularius heat provides no residual protection. We can if the client wishes chemically pre-treat or provides a chemical application after the program if there is a concern about the possibility of becoming re-infested.
We recommend checking all possible exposure sources prior to bed bug thermal and this will include surrounding units, staff, places of work, vehicles, gym or personal lockers, friends, childcare and nurseries, schools etc. This bug is a hitchhiker and travels with us. It also moves easily from one unit to the next via hallways, pipe chases, electrical conduits, cable wire channels, etc. All avenues of infestation possibilities must be explored so that they can be ruled out. We only want to treat you once.
Bed Bug heat treatment generally takes about a day to complete depending on the size of the unit. Providing heat treatments for bed bugs in multiple units at once takes a lot of coordination between the treating company, the management company, and the landlord or building owner. One of the most important things is to ensure we have people complying with the preparation and not taking too many items with them on the day of treatment. When using heat to kill bed bugs you don’t want to carry out insects and then bring them right back after we are done. That is a monumental waste of time, fuel, money, and energy.
Providing Bed Bug Heat Treatment to private homes is much easier. When you are helping a family recover from an infestation you have a good idea where the bed bugs came from, there are fewer individuals so there is less opportunity to re-infest with bedbugs, and it’s usually a cooperative effort to exterminate the population in one treatment.
We provided one heat treatment to a family after Christmas. Unfortunately, they had about 20 family members over for the Holiday. Guess where everyone put their coats? That’s right on the bed in the master bedroom right where the bed bugs had been reproducing for several months. We ended up having to Heat treat three other homes. Everyone cooperated, all homes were inspected by canine and we had climb-ups installed, and everyone’s home had the bed bugs eliminated through the use of our bed bug heat treatment program. Thermal Treatments Work! You just have to know how to do it right, make sure you are taking into account all the possibilities of spread, eliminate any possibility of reinfestation (as humanly possible), and treat it properly.
