Whether you’re suspicious or sure about the bed bug infestation at home, make sure to call an expert pest control company like California Bed Bug Exterminators to confirm and treat the problem before it gets out of hand.

What is Bed Bug Heat Treatment?

Thermal Remediation (or bed bug heat treatment) is the quickest and most effective way to eliminate the bedbug problem in a property. Unlike the conventional treatment that takes multiple appointments, a heat treatment manages to eradicate the adult bed bugs and their eggs in just one application.

Bed bug heat treatments utilize extreme temperatures to kill the bed bugs in the room. The lethal temperature for these pests is usually more than 120 degrees Fahrenheit. Even bedbugs that are resistant to a pesticide treatment method die within a few seconds after getting exposed to the heated air in the treatment area.

Aside from being an effective bed bug treatment, thermal remediation also offers the following benefits:

  • Pest control professionals use way less pesticide during heat treatment.
  • This bed bug treatment allows the control of the pests within a unit.
  • It only causes minimal disruption to occupants since heat treatments only require one treatment.
  • Bed bugs in different stages of life are effectively eradicated – from eggs and nymphs to adult bed bugs.
  • The heated air reaches all possible cold spots and other infested areas that aren’t accessible by other treatments.
  • This treatment is a lot greener and sustainable than a chemical treatment and other traditional methods of eliminating bed bugs.

Eliminating Bed Bugs: The California Bed Bug Exterminators Way

At California Bed Bug Exterminators, every bed bug treatment service starts with an accurate inspection of the infested area. It allows us to confirm the bed bug infestation and create an effective bed bug treatment plan to completely eliminate the pests.

After the bed bug inspection, our exterminator asks the property owner to prepare the rooms or units for the treatment. Preparations are only minimal, but they’re extremely crucial for a bed bug service to eliminate the pests on the property. Here are the treatment preparations that residents and property owners must do before the pest control professionals arrive:

  • Discard all the clutter that might get in the way of the extermination team.
  • Avoid moving bags that aren’t going to the laundry.
  • Gather all aerosol cans, candles, items made of wax, flammable items, lighters, and other similar items in a cardboard box. Give them to the extermination team to check the items for bed bugs before removing them from the room.
  • Remove all living animals and plants from the treatment area.
  • Unplug all electronics from their power sources.
  • If the treatment is performed during summer, turn off the air conditioner a few hours before the team arrives.
  • If the treatment is performed during winter, turn up the propane heater before the team’s arrival.
  • Ensure that you’re only taking the necessary items when leaving the unit. Ask the exterminator to inspect the items you’re taking to avoid re-infestation.

Residents receive a call from our team about the successful extermination once it’s already safe to return to the property. We also provide aftercare tips to avoid re-infestation in the unit. Call us now for a quick and effective bed bug removal service.

Everything You Need to Know About Bed Bugs

What are bedbugs?

A bedbug is a small insect that’s often mistaken for small cockroaches or fleas. They’re brown, small, oval-shaped critters that grow up to ¼ of an inch. Bedbugs are naturally flat, but they tend to swell when they consume enough blood.

These pests are usually found in the crevice of a mattress or other furniture pieces. They love staying in beds because it’s the best place for them to feed on the blood of warm-blooded mammals while they rest. Bedbugs are excellent hitchhikers, which is why they manage to move from one place to another even without wings.

What do bed bugs eat?

Bed bugs feed off the blood of warm-blooded animals. But like a mosquito, bed bugs seem to prefer human blood more. They usually attack at night when the hosts are asleep on the bed. A bed bug bite isn’t painful, which is why it takes time for the host to notice it. However, some people experience itchiness or allergic reactions when bitten by a bed bug.

Why is it hard to spot bed bugs?

A bed bug infestation might seem like it happened overnight because it’s difficult to spot these critters unless they’re already a huge problem. Aside from their small bodies, they also lay hundreds of eggs in their lifetime. A bed bug egg is often mistaken as a speck of dust, which is why its population grows rapidly.

Their flat bodies also allow them to squeeze and stay hidden in the tightest spots. Bed bugs are often found in a mattress, headboard, bed frame, box spring, and other items near the bed. Finding a living bed bug is difficult, which is why a thorough inspection is needed if you’re suspecting an infestation.

How to Spot Bed Bugs in a Property

Since it’s hard to spot living bed bugs, residents often rely on other signs of bed bug infestations to confirm if there’s an infestation. Here are signs of bed bug activity in the property that require immediate treatment from a pest control company:

  • There are itchy insect bites across the skin that form lines.
  • There’s an unexplainable musty odor in the room.
  • There are dark spots and bloodstains on the mattress, pillows, and sheets.
  • There are discarded bed bug shells in the bed.
  • You have neighbors who recently reported bed bugs in their unit.
  • You recently bought a second-hand mattress or furniture.

Bed bugs are often difficult to spot unless the infestation is already severe. Knowing the signs of bed bug activity in a house allows residents to contact pest management professionals and act quickly before the bed bug problem gets worse.

Call California Bed Bug Exterminators for accurate inspection and effective bed bug treatments if you’re suspecting an infestation on the property.

Here are the benefits of professional bed bug extermination that you should consider first before grabbing a can of insecticide and spraying it on the treatment areas:

FAQs About Bed Bug Heat Treatment

Q: Are heat treatments safe?

A: Heat treatments are much safer than other bed bug removal treatments that require the use of pesticides and other chemicals. However, they should only be performed by a professional bed bug exterminator to avoid accidents and damages on the property. Aside from killing bed bugs, a bed bug heater is also capable of eliminating viruses, bacteria, molds, allergens, and odor in a treatment area.

Q: What makes heat treatments effective?

A: Bed bugs are attracted to heat because it’s a sign of human presence. As the treatment area is heated, the bed bugs start coming out of their hiding spots in search of the food source. By the time they notice that the environment is too hot for them, they’re already too weak to escape. The lethal temperature from the heat chamber also penetrates different structures and belongings without causing extra damage. This allows the heat to kill off the hidden bed bugs and their eggs.
