Happy Bed Bug Season!

It is that time of year again – the weather is sunny, the kids are nearing Spring Break, and you’re counting down to family vacation. With all the excitement, you may have forgotten, it’s also bed bug season.

Bed Bugs Travel

With the increase in travel and hotel visits, bed bugs are being brought back to your local homes, schools, and hospitals. These pesky creatures can spread quickly, with each female able to lay up to 500 eggs.

Bed Bugs are Tenacious

Eliminating bedbugs completely can be an extremely difficult task. In the past, most sufferers of bed bug infestations have chosen to attack using chemical treatments. Although this is a cost-effective solution, there is another, greener option – ThermaPure Heat.

Heat is the best treatment for Bed Bugs

ThermaPure Heat is an incredibly effective way to kill the bed bugs, including the eggs. It is the only non-chemical method used to successfully treat an entire structure. With chemical treatments, the resident would have to remove all soft goods, bag their food, and have a multi-day relocation. With ThermaPure Heat, all of the items in the residence remain inside, and residents can return immediately after treatment.

Our technicians ensure the affected location is heated to the appropriate kill temperature for a set number of hours. We use an internal monitoring system to kill not only the bugs, but also their eggs. We will be inside the location moving items around, to create a life-sized laundry dryer in order to achieve the kill temperatures inside all areas of the residence.

Upon completion, the owner, pest control company and/or the resident will receive a printout of the interior temperatures to support peace of mind that kill temperatures were achieved.

Alliance’s ThermaPure Heat can partner with your current pest control company to ensure maximum fighting effort.
