Caution! Heat Treatment Risks Spreading Bed Bugs in Multi-Unit Homes and Condominiums

In contrast to the ambient heat treatment method for bed bug extermination in multi-unit settings, which poses significant risks of infestation spread to adjacent units, steam heat treatment emerges as a more effective and targeted alternative, addressing many of the challenges inherent in the ambient heat approach. Unlike ambient heat treatment, which involves heating an entire space to a uniform temperature – a process that often drives bed bugs to migrate to cooler neighboring units – steam heat treatment is localized and precise, directly targeting bed bug-infested areas without the broader risks of migration. This precision not only ensures that bed bugs and their eggs are exterminated in the treated areas but also significantly reduces the likelihood of them escaping to adjacent apartments in multi-unit buildings.

A major advantage of steam heat treatment is its ability to penetrate deep into the areas where bed bugs hide, such as mattresses, screw holes, joints in the furniture, and cracks, delivering lethal temperatures directly to these pests and their eggs. This method overcomes the challenge of achieving uniform heating throughout an entire unit, a significant issue with ambient heat treatment in multi-unit environments. By focusing on specific infested areas, steam heat treatment also mitigates the risk of property damage to sensitive materials and electronics, a concern with the high temperatures used in ambient heat methods.

Furthermore, the current landscape of bed bug extermination faces a notable challenge: the lack of effective pesticides. Many bed bug populations have developed resistance to conventional insecticides, rendering them less effective. Therefore, combining any form of heat treatment with pesticides may not yield additional benefits and could lead to unnecessary chemical exposure. Steam heat treatment stands out as a singularly effective approach, eliminating the need for chemical interventions. Its efficacy is rooted in its ability to deliver immediate, lethal temperatures to bed bugs and their eggs, ensuring a higher success rate in extermination without relying on potentially ineffective pesticides.

In conclusion, steam heat treatment offers a more targeted, safe, and effective solution for bed bug extermination, particularly in complex multi-unit residential settings. It addresses the limitations and risks associated with ambient heat treatment, such as the potential for infestation spread, uneven heating, and the absence of residual protection. By focusing on direct application to infested areas, steam heat treatment provides a practical, efficient, and environmentally friendly approach to bed bug extermination, aligning with the need for effective, non-chemical pest control methods in the face of growing pesticide resistance.



4 Reasons Why IPM Will End Your Boston Bead Bug Nightmare Now and Forever!

1. Bed bugs are very good at adaptation and survival. The companies selling ambient heat treatment for bed bug will try to convince you bed bugs are drawn to the source of the heat to the point they experience a sort of heat exhaustion or thermal shock and die.

Heat ( our body heat ) accounts for 2.5 % of what draws bed bugs to us, hence, their claim is exactly 2.5% true. The CO2 we exhale accounts for 95% of the attraction, and the body heat and our body scent account equally for the remaining 5%. That is science and bed bug biology without the hype.

2. The proper equipment used in ambient heat bed bug remediation is expensive. A setup required to treat an average 3-bedroom Boston area home will cost around $400K.

That is simply cost-prohibitive for most companies in the Boston market or anywhere else for that matter.

Instead of heating up the entire home at the same time, the technicians will heat up a part of the house with the equipment at their disposal. After that is finished the techs will proceed to the next part of the house effectively speaking chasing bed bugs from one place to the other.

3. Heat sinks. Every structure, even the one built to the best standards in Boston, will have areas that heat up slower than other areas. If you consider the first paragraph, it is easy to see how something as good in principle as heat treatment, could be so ineffective in providing a reliable solution for bed bugs.

Even if one of the bed bugs or an egg survives the heat treatment, there is absolutely nothing to protect you.

4. Complete lack of residual protection. In simple terms, once the room temperature drops to its normal level, there is nothing in place to slow down the growth of the bed bug population.

Therefore, if not all of the bed bugs were killed during the treatment there is nothing to protect you in case of re-infestation.Β  If your home is a stand-alone structure the chance of reinfestation is significant but if your home is part of a larger structure like an apartment or a condominium complex the chance of reinfestation is unacceptably high.

Listed above are the four main bed bug heat treatment problems and reasons why heat treatment for bed bugs is not the best solution.

At K&A Pest Control we utilize true IPM ( Integrated Pest Management ) principles.Β  A combination of the best, safest, and most effective tools to provide safe, fast, and lasting solutions to your bed bug nightmare. We utilize heat in a more focused manner where it is 100% effective and instant.

Combining it with other mechanical solutions where bed bug biology and feeding habits are used to eradicate their population and provide ongoing protection is where we differ from other companies. Bed bug extermination is our single focus, the only insect we aim at. We offer instant relief, full house preparation, and nontoxic treatment. There is no need to leave the house, and you are protected by a full 12 months guarantee. For more information please call us or complete an online form.
