Effective Bed Bug Extermination Using Heat Treatment

Dr. Bed Bug uses heat treatment for bed bug elimination. This allows for a one-day turnaround time. You can have us start the treatment in the morning so you can be back in your property by the evening. We use environmentally friendly and safe products. Our methods only utilize a minimal amount of pesticide.

What Sets Heat Treatment Apart

Heat is a superior solution to eliminate bed bug infestations. This nonchemical, nontoxic approach penetrates wall cavities, mattresses, and other hard-to-reach locations to kill bed bugs. By applying heat evenly throughout a structure, we are able to kill bed bugs wherever they are hiding, something that other treatments cannot achieve in a single treatment.

Heat treatment can target bed bugs in all growth stages, including the eggs. This means that a single application can eliminate the entire population as compared to pesticide control methods which can leave some alive. Best of all, heat treatment destroys allergens caused by bed bugs and other pests. This greatly improves indoor air quality.

How It Works

During the treatment, heat is forced into beds, bedding, mattresses, furniture, cavities, and other places where the bed bugs may hide. Nymphs and adults die within 15 minutes at temperatures greater than 113°F. On the other hand, eggs die within 60 minutes.

Maintaining the temperature above the thermal death point for several hours thoroughly eliminates the infestation. We can typically complete each treatment within 6-8 hours, depending on the size and the clutter within the structure.

Keys to a Successful Heat Treatment


Bed bug heaters are placed within the space. This introduces and recirculates heated air.


Temperature is monitored during the entire treatment. This is important to help maintain the ideal temperature that kills the bed bugs.

Move Air

High-temperature fans move heated air throughout the space to reach insects in cracks and crevices or in high-infestation zones.
