Benefits of Heat Treatment for Bed Bugs in Phoenix, AZ
Bed bugs have made a resurgence. Over the past decade, these nearly-eliminated pests can now be found in homes all over Arizona, biting and breeding at a rapid pace.
Treating bed bugs have also become more difficult, as some bed bugs have become resistant to the chemical treatments that had been so successful at exterminating them in the past.
Heat Treatment for Bed Bugs: An Effective Form of Bed Bug Control
There are still chemical treatments that are effective against bed bugs. But few homeowners want to spray these strong chemicals around their property. That is why you may want to consider a heat treatment alternative, which has also been shown to be effective at residential and commercial bed bug removal.
Like all living creatures, bed bugs can only survive in specific temperatures. Studies have shown that, at about 120 degrees, all adult bed bugs will die after roughly 20 minutes, and all eggs will die after 90.
Using special tools, pest control specialists, like Green Home Pest in Phoenix, can safely heat up the inside of your home to 120 degrees and maintain the heat long enough to eliminate all bed bugs on the property. The advantages of this type of treatment include:
- No Chemicals – Bed bug pesticides are still effective and may be an appropriate treatment for your property. But they are still chemicals. Heat treatment provides an alternative that is safer for you, your children, and your pests.
- Effective – Heat treatments work. They eliminate bed bugs quickly, without requiring any baits, and can reach even the smallest cracks in order to eliminate any bed bugs that may be hiding away.
- Safe for Your Items – Almost every item in the household capable of handling the hot Arizona summers, and can easily withstand the heat treatment for bed bugs. You don’t have to worry about the heat damaging your items, and can avoid any long-term consequences of pesticide damage.

But for those looking for a safe alternative to chemical bed bug control in Phoenix, heat treatment is a great choice. For more information, please call Green Home Pest today at (480) 525-7378.
