How Convectex Professional Heat Treatments Work

                How Convectex Professional Heat Treatments Work

Whether you are a business owner or pest control professional,  HEAT is one of the most valuable tools you can have against bed bugs.  If you are new to killing bed bugs with heat it may seem like a daunting task.  HOWEVER, Convectex is here to show you just how easy it can be to kill bed bugs with our professional heating equipment.  Many "newbies" to heat treatments have questions regarding the safety, speed and accuracy of heat treatments vs. the traditional chemical treatments.  Convectex and countless advanced pest professionals around the country know that heat is the BEST way to kill bed bugs.

How does it work?

There is one simple fact that makes heat treatments the most effective way to kill bed bugs.  Bed bugs HATE heat, in fact it is one of the few elements that kill them with the first application.  Bed bugs are masters at avoiding chemical treatments, often just relocating to another room and continuing to thrive.  The other problem with DIY and chemical treatments is that they hardly ever are able to kill the eggs before they hatch, leaving a brand new infestation waiting as soon as the chemical treatment is over.  With heat we can kill all of the bed bugs in as little as 8 hours.  Once the rooms is sealed and the proper preparation steps are made (like moving all furniture 6 inches from the wall) the heating equipment can be set up.  The entire process usually takes around 6-8 hours to complete.  During that time the room is safely heated to 120-160 degrees using our professional heaters and fans.  The temperature is held until all of the bugs have succumbed to the heat.  With the training provided at Convectex, any adult can administer the heat treatment.

 Why is heat better than traditional methods?

In addition to the benefits mentioned above, heat is one of the safest ways to eliminate bed bugs.  Here's why:

  1. It kills bed bugs the first time! That means no more reoccurring infestations and paranoia in guests and tenants.  This also allows you to continue with business as usual and not have to worry about the bed bugs coming back.
  2. It’s safer than chemicals! Because there is no need for any dangerous chemicals to be applied, your customers, tenants or guests don't have to worry about allergic reactions, skin irritations or breathing problems.  The heat treatments are also safe for pets and children that could "get into" residual chemicals or traps left after a traditional treatments. Improper safety when using chemicals or DIY attempts can even can lead to injury or death, especially in pets and children.
  3. Its fast! Completing a bed bug elimination in 6-8 hours in unheard of in any other treatment type. Chemical treatments can take months and multiple applications to kill the bugs. Because heat can kill all of the bugs (in any stage of the life cycle) in the walls and furniture, the infestation can be eliminated the first time!
