Three Reasons Why You Shouldn’t Use a Toxic Bed Bug Treatment

thermal bed bug treatmentIt’s simple. You have a bed bug problem, and so you get the most effective bed bug treatment you can find. The thing is, most people believe that chemicals are the best professional bed bug treatments, when in actuality, heat exterminations are the superior bed bug solutions.

Here are a few reasons why.

They’re Non-Toxic
Thermal bed bug treatments are intrinsically better because they don’t involve chemicals, which means they’re safer for you, your family, your pets, your home, and the environment. Multiple studies have linked pesticide exposure to an increased risk of: cancer, still birth, birth defects, infertility, and even brain and nervous system damage.

Instead, thermal bed bug treatments heat an infested room at 130 degrees Fahrenheit for three hours, or 140 degrees Fahrenheit for two. Since the pesky parasites can only withstand a maximum heat of 122 degrees Fahrenheit, these thermal bed bug treatments essentially roast them well beyond what they can withstand.

They Get in to Hard to Reach Places
Bed bugs are amazing hiders. Not only can they make themselves really scarce when threats are around — hatchlings can hide inside a mattress since they’re small enough to pass through the stitch-hole — but they can hide their eggs in tiny, microcosmic spaces. Although noxious clouds won’t be able to reach them in these small spaces, they can’t escape the heat of a thermal bed bug treatment.

They’re More Affordable
Consider this — since chemical treatments are less likely to kill each bed bug and each egg, it’s more likely that the bed bugs will make a comeback. This means that you may have to pay thousands more again to get your home bug-free. Why run the possibility of having to do it over and over, when a thermal bed bug treatment will get the job done the first time?

Basically, heat remediation for bed bugs is a safer, more thorough way to rid your home of pests. If you have any questions, feel free to ask in the comments.
