Why kill bedbugs with heat?

Scientific research and industry professionals agree that heat treatment is the most effective and fastest way to kill bedbugs, when compared to dangerous and increasingly less-effective chemicals.

Introduction to heat

During the latter part of World War II, DDT was utilized to curb the spread of insect-borne diseases like malaria and typhus among civilians and troops. However, due to its hazardous effects on humans, it was banned in 1972. Consequently, chemical formulations were intensified to combat bedbugs, leading to resistance in these pests. In response, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued warnings about the risks of bedbug pesticides, pushing experts to explore non-toxic alternatives like heat treatment. High temperatures, ranging from 122º to 135ºF (50º to 57.2ºC), have emerged as the most effective and chemical-free means to eliminate bedbugs at any stage of their development, providing a safe and efficient solution to infestations.

ADVANTAGES OF HEAT VS CHEMICALS

ADVANTAGES OF HEAT TREATMENT

With heat there is minimal risk for humans or animals because there are not harmful odors or toxic chemicals.

Bedbug heaters are quick and efficient, killing bedbugs in as little as one day with one treatment.  Average of 1.3 treatments per site is typical for complete eradication.

Heat treatment causes bedbugs to become lethargic prior to death, meaning they slow down and are unable to scatter or hide. The 122 to 135ºF (50 to 57.2ºC ) heat from bedbug heaters penetrates into hiding places ensuring that you’re getting full eradication of bedbugs in all of their harborages and stages of life.

You or your staff can set up and utilize bedbug heaters.  This eliminates the need for pest control companies and their vans, which can be seen outside your facility and create a cause for concern.

Eradi-Flo heaters are logical investments which pay for themselves after just a few uses.  Combined with the turn around time keeping rooms in service and generating revenue.

Heaters are a one-time investment that pays for itself after the 2nd usage.  Heaters can be used in other applications as well.

You or your employees do not have to have a license to conduct heat treatments.

DISADVANTAGES OF CHEMICAL TREATMENT

Chemicals have odors which are toxic and harmful to both humans and animals.  Sometimes treated items and materials may need to be discarded because of chemical resideu.

Research indicates it takes an average of 2.6 service visits to at best, reduce bedbugs with chemical treatments.

New strains of bedbugs are becoming increasingly resistant to chemicals with tougher cuticles and maneuverability. Spraying chemicals also causes bugs to scatter and hide. With chemicals, if you can’t see them you’re not getting them because to be successful many require direct contact on the bugs.

With chemicals there is a visible and olfactory evidence of application.  Pest control vans can be seen near the building as well.

Slower turn around from chemicals means your room are out of service for multiple days resulting in lost revenue and possibly damage to your reputation.

Chemical treatments require multiple visits and multitude of chemicals.  This also ties up cash for constantly replenishing inventory.

Technicians are required to have a professional license.  To apply certain chemicals with an annual re-certification.

Research indicates chemicals are not totally effective.

Why Chemical Approaches Fall Short in Pest Eradication

The widespread adoption of chemicals as a pest control method has become commonplace for both pest control companies and other businesses. However, the concern lies in the hazardous residue these chemicals can leave behind when individuals are exposed to them excessively or for prolonged periods. This concern was emphasized by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in 2012 when they issued a warning about the potential dangers of bedbug pesticides and the risks associated with overuse or prolonged exposure to these chemicals.

Chemical treatments require, on average, 2.6 visits to completely eliminate a bedbug infestation. On top of that, industry data, scientific research, entomologists, and pest control experts have confirmed that the use of chemicals and insecticides for bedbug eradication is becoming less and less effective. That’s because bedbugs and other pests have evolved, making themselves resistant to certain chemicals by growing thicker exoskeletons or walking on their hind legs to better avoid over topical powders. 

But, in many cases, using a heat treatment for bedbug eradication is effective in just one use with a median of 1.3 visits across the industry.

For years certain chemicals were successful and later discontinued or banned. Another generation of chemicals and compounds has replaced them and been used for several decades. Now entomologists are finding that bedbugs are becoming resistant to many of the commonly used chemicals. The typical suggestion is to increase the toxicity and amount of the chemicals being applied.

The genesis of most pest control companies is the chemical industry. The use of chemicals and the licensing of them for eradication has been the accepted standard process against a myriad of pests. However, that is not the case with bedbugs, according to current scientific research and field applications of chemicals

Did you know that bedbugs and other pests are building up a resistance to different extermination chemicals? This means that the chemicals need to be stronger or continually reformulated in order to keep pest problems under control. Industry data, scientific research, entomologists and pest control experts have confirmed that the use of chemicals and insecticides for bedbug eradication is becoming less and less effective.

Bedbugs are now resistant to many of the current chemicals being used, and some strains have even grown a thicker exoskeleton that prohibits chemical effectiveness. Some strains can even walk on their hind legs over topical powders so they have no effect in contacting the body.

Heat is the one thing that bedbugs cannot SURVIVE

Bedbug experts are finally realizing that the most effective and chemical-free way to get rid of any pest or bedbug problem is through temperatures they are unable to withstand.

Lethal temperatures for bedbugs range between 122° and 135° Fahrenheit.

All Eradi-Flo heaters get up to 155°F (68.3°C) to ensure all bed bugs and pests are effectively killed. Dead BedBugz industrial electric heater that will hold a temperature of 12s to 135°F for an extended period of time, you’ve found a chemical-free solution for ridding your property of bedbugs or other pests.

Why Chemicals Do Not Work!

Using chemicals has become the norm for pest control companies and other businesses. But chemicals leave behind a residue that can be hazardous when someone is exposed to too much or for too long.

In fact, in 2012 the CDC — the Center for Disease Control and Preventionissued a warning about the dangers of bedbug pesticides and the dangers that can come from using too much pesticide or exposure to these chemicals.
