Thermination can eliminate bed bug infestations without the use of chemicals using specially designed electric heaters to elevate room temperatures above 122 °F. This is the point at which all bed bugs and their eggs die. Bed bugs typically hide when not feeding in nearby cracks, crevices, and bedding.
Conventional chemical pest control treatments often miss some bed bugs in their hiding places, with the result that they quickly return. The pest control company may have to visit two of more times before achieving complete eradication. Also, it is usually necessary to dispose of furniture, bedding and electronics, as these are places where the bugs can hide and avoid contact with chemical insecticides.
