Bed Bugs Don’t Stand A Chance
Slaying bed bugs with heat has never been easier! With new Convectex heating technology advances, many high-quality, cost-effective options are now available just for you! Killing bed bugs with heat has many advantages, including that only one treatment is required to eliminate your bed bug problem, unlike chemical approaches. In cases of extreme bed bug infestations, chemical treatments are even more likely to fail altogether, as bed bugs are continually developing resistance to even the highest-performing chemicals on the market. These work together to make heat the much-preferred method for the quick and efficient elimination of bed bugs.
Heat treatments work by raising the temperature in the area to above 120° Fahrenheit. At this temperature, adult bed bugs and eggs can be killed quickly. It is vital to make sure the proper temperatures are maintained long enough to kill all the bugs. Proper stratification of air via the use of air movers will distribute heat to the cracks and crevices throughout the structure, dramatically increasing the likelihood of one-time success.
What Tools You'll Need
To start killing your bed bugs with heat, the first step is to choose a heater powerful enough to get your space to the correct temperature and keep it there. In addition to the heater itself, you will need air movers and other equipment to deliver heated air where it needs to go, as well as a temperature gauge to ensure lethal temperatures are achieved everywhere. Knowing specifically what you need can be daunting, which is one reason we provide complete heat treatment packages for killing bed bugs based on your space, with everything you will need, even down to the instructions!

Bed bugs are small, flat insects that feed on humans and other warm-blooded mammals. Bed Bug starts their life cycle as nearly microscopic eggs and grow through five developmental stages. At each stage, the bed bug nymphs must consume a blood meal in order to develop into the next stage. The whole developmental process takes about a month in an optimal environment.

- The lethal temperature is held for a minimum of 8-12 hours and should be monitored regularly.
- After the required heat time the heaters are removed and the room remains closed to cool slowly and prolong the treatment time.
- The room can be re-entered and cleaned as soon as the temperatures have cooled.
