Heat Treatment For Bed Bugs in Interior BC & Greater Vancouver
How Does a Heat Treatment Get Rid of Bed Bugs?
Our preferred method for getting rid of bed bugs is one easy heat treatment. Heat treatment for bed bugs refers to using a series of electric heaters and fans to raise the temperature of an affected room to over 113 degrees F. This forces the eggs of bed bugs to hatch, which further increases the temperature of the room to over 130 degrees F. Bed bugs are unable to survive in this extreme heat, and are eliminated within minutes of contact.

Guaranteed Bed Bug Control With Heat Treatment
In addition to heat treatment, our exterminators also get rid of remaining bed bugs (that like to crawl into cracks and crevices) by applying silica dust into hard-to-reach areas. Silica dust removes the waxy outer coating of bed bugs' shells which helps them conserve moisture, and as a result, they die from dehydration. Silica dust is very harmful to unprotected humans, so please, do not try attempting this method at home.
Additionally, silica dust is typically only for bed bug control with other methods of extermination.
