What is heat treatment?
Heat treatment is used throughout the pest control sector to target pest insects, such as bed bugs, cockroaches and moths, without causing damage to the surrounding building, machinery or infrastructure. The solution is used across a wide range of properties and businesses, including within food manufacturing, stately homes, hospitals, schools and cinemas, amongst others.
How effective is heat treatment?
Heat treatment is an effective pest control method that involves raising the temperature of an infested area to a level that is lethal to pests. This method completely eradicates the lifecycle of the insect, killing everything including the eggs, larvae, pupae and the adults.
This technique is particularly useful in controlling bed bugs, which have developed resistance to traditional insecticides. Heat treatment works by denaturing the proteins and enzymes within the pests’ bodies, resulting in their death.
It is also environmentally friendly since it does not involve the use of harmful chemicals. Heat treatment is a reliable and efficient solution for pest control, providing a quick and long-lasting result.
