- Heat treatment for bed bugs is the best option that there is. It was developed because bed bugs are the most difficult of all the insects we come across to eradicate using insecticide. Super-heated, super-dried air is applied to all key areas over an extended period. We bring the temperature up gradually to 55-60 degrees using specialist equipment that we bring inside the property. We then monitor the heat with sensors to make sure those areas are over the required temperature for the required amount of time for the treatment to be successful. This information is fed to a laptop monitored by our lead technician on the day. Because the core of the treatment is air, it penetrates areas where we can’t reach with insecticide, killing all life stages in situ (including crucially the eggs) by dehydration and desiccation. Bed bug heat treatment is appropriate if the infestation is well established, if it’s proving impossible to shift using insecticide, or if the customer wants to go for the very best option first time. At the end of the heat treatment we also apply professional strength insecticide as an insurance. This proven approach gives absolutely the best chance of full eradication in one visit. And you have the peace of mind of a 24-week warranty (12 weeks for commercial premises) that if you do see live bed bugs following the 14-day settling-in period, we will re-attend and retreat free of charge as many times as necessary, subject to the production of live evidence. We cover all of England and Wales for heat treatment. In terms of price, the more rooms we treat, the less expensive it becomes per room.

- We make no bones about it; bed bugs can be difficult to shift with even the best professional strength insecticides. There are multiple different strains of bed bugs out there, and some are more resistant than others. No-one can (or certainly no-one should) guarantee eradication of a bed bug infestation with insecticide. The only way of finding out if insecticide is going to work is to try it. However, if the infestation is light or recent, two treatments with insecticide about two weeks apart can often be successful. The reason for the two visits is to target any adults and nymphs that may have ‘got away with’ the first treatment, and to cover the gestation period of the eggs. Bed bugs are nocturnal, and during the day (when treatment takes place) they will be hiding in difficult to reach places. For that reason they are very difficult if not impossible to direct hit with insecticide, and therefore we need to use insecticides with a strong residual which keeps working post application. The residuals of even the best professional strength products we have access to last no longer than two weeks, and two visits two weeks apart gives us about a month of effective residual. We send you and explain to you the preparation required. It’s critical that you don’t hoover or mop for two weeks post treatment, and that you continue to sleep in your beds so that there is a Co2 signature in the rooms at night to draw the bugs over the residual while it’s still strong enough to impact them. In terms of price, the more rooms we treat, the less expensive it becomes per room.
