Heat is used by bed bug heaters to destroy bed bugs and their eggs. The bed bugs die as a result of the high temperatures damaging their cellular membranes. Moreover, the heat causes the bed bugs to get dehydrated, which makes it difficult for them to survive.
Bed bug heaters either employ convection heating or infrared heating to elevate the temperature of an area that is infested with bed bugs to a level that is fatal to bed bugs. Infrared heaters employ infrared radiation to target particular locations with strong heat, whereas convection heaters circulate hot air across the treatment area.
The normal temperature range for bed bug heaters is 120 to 155 degrees Fahrenheit (49 to 68 degrees Celsius). Bed bugs and their eggs cannot survive in this temperature range.
Since they cannot control their body temperature, bed bugs are cold-blooded insects. Due to their extreme sensitivity to temperature changes, bed bugs and their eggs are killed when exposed for an extended period to temperatures exceeding 113 degrees Fahrenheit (45 degrees Celsius).
If you carefully follow the manufacturer’s directions, bed bug heaters are usually safe to use. To ensure that neither you nor anybody else in the treatment area is endangered, it is crucial to implement the proper safety measures.
The possibility of fire is a crucial safety factor to take into account while utilizing a bed bug heater. Bed bug heaters produce a lot of heat and shouldn’t be used close to objects that can catch fire or in locations where there’s a risk of fire. When utilizing a bed bug heater, make sure the treatment area is free of any dangers or combustible materials by carefully reading the manufacturer’s directions and warnings.
The type of heater being used, the size and configuration of the treatment area, and the level of the infestation can all affect how successful bed bug heaters are.
Bed bug heaters have a great deal of potential for killing bed bugs and their eggs when used properly. Bed bugs cannot survive the high temperatures produced by bed bug heaters, which can also penetrate deeply into furnishings, walls, and other surfaces where bed bugs may be hiding.
It’s crucial to remember, though, that bed insect heaters might not always work. Certain bed bugs could be able to survive the treatment, for instance, if the treatment area is not properly prepared or if the heat is not distributed evenly. Also, in locations that are hard to access or where there are impediments that stop the heat from entering, bed bug heaters might not be successful in getting rid of bed bugs.
Several variables, including the type of heater used, the size and configuration of the treatment area, and the level of the infestation, might affect the price of utilizing a bed bug heater.
We offer a few options for differing situations and price points. Tenants looking to eliminate pests from their apartment are perfect for out 2 day rental option that starts at $400. When eliminating pests from a larger space like a house, our 4-day rental that starts at $500 is the best solution. Landlords and others who need heavy treatments should engage our 7-day rental that starts at $750.
The size and design of the treatment area, the level of the infestation, the type of heater being used, and other variables can all affect how long the treatment with a bed bug heater takes.
Typically, bed bug heaters are made to increase the temperature of the treatment area to a point where bed bugs and their eggs die, which is usually between 120 and 140 degrees Fahrenheit. The size and design of the treatment area, as well as the strength of the heater being used, can all affect how long it takes to reach this temperature.
A small space with few barriers might just need a few hours of treatment, whereas a larger space with more furniture and obstructions might need several hours or perhaps a whole day. To maintain a consistent temperature during the treatment process, certain bed bug heaters may contain sensors or timers that automatically turn the unit off when the required temperature is reached. Some heaters, however, may need more manual monitoring.
