Bug Busters USA is Turning Up the Heat on Bed Bugs

March 2012– Bug Busters USA is proud to announce that they are now offering Thermal Remediation® heat treatment service to the Southeast to battle insecticide-resistant bed bugs.

According to a recent survey conducted by the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) and the University of Kentucky, 99% of pest management professionals have encountered bed bugs in the last year and the majority agrees that bed bugs are the most difficult pest to control.

Heat, a safe and environmentally friendly solution, has been found to be a highly effective tool in the pest control toolbox.  Research performed at the University of Minnesota has shown that temperatures above 122°F will result in the complete and immediate kill of the entire life cycle of the bed bug, from eggs to adults.

Bug Busters will be using heating equipment that is specifically designed to kill bed bugs and is UL approved for safety as an insect control device.  Thermal Remediation® electric bed bug heaters are placed within the space with a target temperature of 135°F for the controlled application of heat.  High temperature fans move the heated air into cracks and crevices or high infestation zones.  A wireless temperature monitoring system is used to ensure lethal temperatures are reached without damaging the space and its contents.

    Whatever means and ways to use in stopping the pest infestation it would be better done by bed bug control Los Angeles since they are knowledgeable and knows how to use this properly not harming anybody’s health, and knows also what are the methods in killing this because if these are present we can’t sleep comfortably.
