Heat Assault Bed Bug Treatment
Bed bugs were named for their propensity to lurk in mattresses and bedding, but they can also infest other parts of your home, including closets and the living room. They can invade your house regardless of how well it is maintained. The parasite population has rebounded and expanded worldwide because people are traveling more and staying in hotels. If these noxious pests survive previous chemical treatments, they develop resistance to the products. To eliminate an infestation, it is important that you use a pest control treatment that is fully effective against adult bed bugs as well as their eggs. When bed bugs can't be prevented, we can help you get rid of them with our Heat Assault Treatment.
For thousands of years, people have tried many different ways to control and eliminate these pests, including toxic chemicals and traps that are sprayed or placed inside the residence. While they may be effective against adult bed bugs, these chemical treatments do not kill the eggs increasing the requirement to use multiple insecticide treatments. As the parasitic insects become more resistant to the insecticide, additional chemicals are necessary, which can pose a safety risk to your family and pets. A better option is to use heat. Bed bugs and their eggs are killed once the air temperature reaches 125 degrees Fahrenheit or higher.
Heat Assault is an eco-friendly and chemical-free method that utilizes a completely safe food-grade thermal liquid, which is heated outside your house. The fluid is then pumped through industrial hoses to heaters strategically positioned within your home. The forced convection heater is equipped with built-in fans that quickly create and uniformly distribute hot air above the kill zone. Bed bugs and their eggs are killed instantly when exposed to this extreme heat. The fluid is returned to the reservoir through a closed loop system to be reheated. A remote tracking system enables the technician to monitor the temperature levels in various locations to ensure that every area of your home reaches the kill zone heat for a successful treatment.
Heat Assault is more effective than placing electric or propane heating equipment inside your home because they cannot achieve or sustain the high temperatures required to eradicate a bed bug infestation. Low heat or poor distribution enables the pests to escape or survive in locations that are difficult to reach. Homeowners should never use propane heaters to eliminate an infestation because of the potential risks, including fire, explosions and hazardous fumes. Heat Assault uses outdoor heating equipment that can reach temperatures as high as 145 degrees Fahrenheit making it the most powerful and effective bed bug heat treatment available on the market. The peak temperature reaches crevices in moldings as well as the folds of clothing, bedding and carpeting where bed bugs hide. If a small area needs to be reteated, it is much easier with the Heat Assault method than with other methods.
Heat Assault is a toxin-free treatment that is safe for people and pets. If you suspect that you have a bed bug infestation, contact FAS Pest Management. We will inspect your home and provide information on the benefits of using Heat Assault to solve your bed bug problem.
