Get Started

Heat Extermination, also known as thermal extermination, has gained popularity as the most effective method for eliminating bed bugs.

If there is nowhere to run and nowhere to hide, the bed bugs have no choice but to die. Here are a few advantages that make it the preferred choice for bed bug control.

1. Comprehensive Coverage

Heat extermination is highly effective because it covers every nook and cranny of the infested area. Heat waves penetrate deep into mattresses, furniture, walls, and other hiding spots where bed bugs may reside. Unlike chemical treatments that may miss certain areas or require multiple applications because the bed bug has already mutated, heat penetrates the entire space, ensuring no bed bug can escape.

2. Bed Bug Thermal Death Point

Every living thing on this earth has a thermal death point. Bed bugs exposed to temperatures above 120°F (49°C), will die instantly. A Hot Bugz heat extermination/treatment typically ranges from 135°F to 140°F. We do have the ability to go higher if the job requires it. At these temperatures all life stages of bed bugs, including eggs, nymphs, and adults will die. Killing bed bugs with heat is the best!

3. Heat Works Quickly

Once the Thermal Death Point is reached its instant kill for the bed bugs and their eggs. Unlike chemical treatments that may take 3 treatments or more to exterminate the bed bugs, heat treatments achieve rapid results. Bed bugs exposed to these lethal temperatures for a specific duration die quickly, typically less than 30 seconds.

4. No Chemicals

One of the most significant advantages of heat extermination is its chemical-free nature. Many other bed bug control methods rely on insecticides and pesticides. Chemical failure rates are very high and a minimum of three treatments over a 30 day period are required. Not to mention that chemicals can pose health risks to humans and pets. Heat, on the other hand, is an environmentally friendly and safe approach, making it the ideal choice for those concerned about the use of chemicals in their living spaces.

5. Resistant Bed Bugs

Chemically resistant bed bugs are more common today than they have ever been. In the last 5 to 10 years bed bugs and their offspring have mutated at a rapid rate which makes them harder to kill. Chemicals are a poor choice because if you already have chemically resistant bed bugs, you are set up to fail before you even start. Heat treatments, however, remain the best option because bed bugs have not developed a resistance to extreme temperatures.

6. Saving your furniture

Another key benefit of heat treatment is that it won’t damage your belongings. Unlike chemical treatments that may require you to discard or replace infested items, heat allows you to salvage your possessions. Furniture, bedding, and personal items can often be treated without causing harm, reducing the overall cost of bed bug eradication.

Heat extermination is safe for you, your family, and your pets.

It is the #1 way to kill all life stages of bed bugs and their eggs. It’s 100% effective and chemical-free. Pesticides have become ineffective as bed bugs have developed resistance, and pesticides don’t work without direct contact with bed bugs. Compare this to heat: Bed bugs cannot become resistant to it, and heat waves get everywhere.

No two infestations are the same, so the cost of our heat extermination varies.

When the space is inspected we will be able to give you a firm quote. Hot Bugz will do everything possible to minimize the cost. Initially, heat extermination looks to be more costly but there are other factors to consider.

Normally the premises can be inspected the same day you call. The heating process is usually scheduled within 1-2 days following inspection but it really depends on how fast you can complete the required prep list.

The treatment takes an average of 5-10 hours depending upon a number of factors including the size of the space and the contents in the space.

In general, home remedies are not successful and send the bugs into hiding. Do not try and heat the space using conventional consumer heaters. It will be impossible to achieve the necessary temperature and it could be dangerous.
