Don’t Let the Bed Bugs Bite. Kill Bed Bugs For Good with Heat Treatments.

Terminix Ontario’s bed bug heat treatment is the superior solution to get rid of bed bug infestations. Our non-chemical, non-toxic approach penetrates wall cavities, mattresses, and other hard to reach locations to kill bed bugs. By applying heat evenly throughout a structure, we are able to annihilate bed bugs wherever they are hiding.

Heat treatments kill all of the growth stages of bed bugs, including the eggs. This is important, given that not all pesticide control methods kill bed bug eggs. This means that oftentimes a heat treatment can eradicate the entire bedbug population in a single application, with no fear of offspring returning.

There is considerable documentation citing the temperature and time correlations necessary to kill bedbugs and their eggs. Several sources (Usinger 1966, Gulmahamad 2002, Quarles 2007) state that adults and nymphs die within 15 minutes at temperatures greater than 113ºF and 60 minutes to kill eggs. Raising room temperatures above the thermal death point, and maintaining that temperature for several hours, will eliminate a bedbug infestation at no harm to you.

Thermal Death – Bed Bugs
Pest Temp. Duration Reference
Bed bug adults & nymphs 45°C (113°F) 15 minutes Mallis, 2004
Bed bug eggs 45°C (113°F) 60 minutes Gulmahamad, 2002
Bed bug all stages 46°C (114.8°F) 7 minutes Quarles, 2007
Heat treatment for bed bugs

The temperature required to kill bedbugs and their eggs fall well within the temperature ranges achieved by a heat treatment. The low thermal death point of bedbugs allows our technicians to easily adapt the process to the building and its contents while still achieving efficacy.

Unlike many pesticides, bed bug heat treatments penetrate into every harborage and destroys bed bugs where they reside. Our process forces heat into beds, bedding, mattresses, furniture, electronics, wall cavities and other tough to reach spots, leaving no place for bed bugs to hide.
