Everything on the internet tells you that Heat Treatment is the only way or the best way to treat for Bed Bugs. This is true in some cases. It is certainly the most expensive way to eliminate Bed Bugs. The cost to treat with heat is roughly twice the cost of using chemicals to treat Bed Bugs. The equipment and operating costs of the Heat Treatment equipment is high.
Even in the best circumstances, Heat Treatment will leave behind some surviving Bed Bugs. These survivors may start a whole new infestation again that may not be evident to the homeowner for several weeks. A chemical treatment will use products that have a residual killing action on the Bed Bugs for 90 days after application. After Heat Treatment, there is no residual action to kill any stray bugs. I advise clients that if they insist on using Heat Treatment to kill Bed Bugs, they should follow up with a pesticide spray that has a good residual action.
Bug Stop uses and recommends pesticide treatment for Bed Bugs in the home to keep the costs down and to guarantee the results. No Bed Bugs for 90 days, guaranteed.
