Bed Bug Elimination

Thermal Remediation - Leading Bed Bug Removal Technique

Preferred Pest is the leader in effective, cutting edge bed bug removal solutions. Our bed bug treatment process uses extreme heat to kill the entire life cycle of bed bugs- adults, nymphs and eggs.  Our experienced and state certified extermination professionals are trained to eliminate bed bugs safely and effectively.

In response to insecticide resistant bed bugs, Preferred Pest Control uses Thermal RemediationTM by Temp-Air, which is an effective solution designed specifically for the needs of homes, hotels, universities, and property management companies.

The Thermal Remediation® target temperature during treatment is between 120-135°F, the temperature necessary for heat to penetrate bed bug harborages. This safe, effective, and environmentally friendly process uses dry heat to kill the entire life cycle of bed bugs, reducing the application of insecticides.

With equipment designed specifically for the application of heat to eliminate bed bugs, our highly effective process relies on three main keys to a successful treatment:

  1. Applying Heat.  Our exterminators place electric bed bug heaters within the space; introducing and recirculating heated air with a target temperature not to exceed 135°F for the controlled application of heat.
  2. Monitoring.  Then our exterminators will monitor temperature in real time from a remote location using wireless sensors to ensure lethal temperatures are reached without damaging the space and its contents.
  3. Moving Air. High temperature fans move heated air throughout the space to reach insects in cracks and crevices or high infestation zones.

A typical Thermal Remediation treatment will take about eight hours to complete. You will need to be gone during the treatment due to the high temperatures. At the completion of the bed bug extermination treatment, the room(s) will normally cool down within an hour. Therefore, most customers are able to sleep in their room the same night that the treatment has been completed.

Preferred Pest has performed several thousand treatments using Thermal RemediationTM by Temp-Air over the last several years. We have the experience and expertise to provide the most advanced bed bug treatment available to eliminate this invasive pest.
