Bed Bug Heat Treatments near me in Columbus, Ohio

There is nothing magical about thermal treatment; it simply cooks bed bugs in all stages of life. Every animal and plant wilts and eventually dies in extreme heat, but “extreme” is relative to the species, bed bugs begin to die at 122 degrees fahrenheit.

How do you get ready for a Bed Bug Heat Treatment?

Heat treatment of bed bugs does not harm a building’s structure, furnishings, or electronics. However, the area to be treated must be empty of humans, animals, and plants. It is also imperative that you remove heat-sensitive items from the area to avoid damage, such as:

– Food and beverages
– Medications
– Toiletries and cosmetics
– Household and hobby chemicals

How Heat Is Applied

Once the treatment area has been cleared, your COBE professional will set up remote thermometers to monitor the bedbug heat treatment. The technician will then install a special machine, which generates electric heat to raise the air temperature of the building between 130°F and 135°F.
Adult bed bugs, nymphs, and eggs die instantly at about 122°F, so you can see why bed bug heat treatment is so effective. Very few creatures can survive this high-temperature blast.
