To battle insecticide-resistant bed bugs, Freedom Pest Control’s heat treatment program utilizes electric bed bug heat treatment equipment. Our system is Thermal Remediation® from TEMP-AIR which is an effective solution designed specifically for use in homes, apartments, hotels and universities.
The Thermal Remediation® target temperature during treatment is between 120-135°F, the temperature necessary for heat to penetrate bed bug harborages. This safe, effective and environmentally friendly process uses dry heat to kill the entire life cycle of bed bugs, while reducing the application of insecticides. Our Thermal Remediation® equipment is designed specifically for the application of heat to kill bed bugs. This highly effective process relies on three main keys to a successful treatment:
- Apply Heat. Electric bed bug heaters are placed within the space; introducing and recirculating heated air with a target temperature not to exceed 135°F for the controlled application of heat.
- Monitor. Temperatures are monitored in real time from a remote location using wireless sensors to ensure lethal temperatures are reached without damaging the space and its contents.
- Move Air. High temperature fans move heated air throughout the space to reach insects in cracks and crevices or high infestation zones.
