At Hot Bugz, we understand the distress that a bed bug infestation can cause homeowners here in Colorado. Bed bugs are notorious for disrupting ones sleep, causing itchiness and significant discomfort. That’s why we are committed to providing Five Star bed bug elimination services specifically tailored to your single-family residences.

Bed Bug Heat Extermination and the Hot Bugz Approach

Inspection and Assessment

Hot Bugz specializes in bed bug heat extermination and nothing else. Put quite simply, we are experts. We understand their behaviors and where they like to hide. Our experienced technicians are highly trained and very successful at finding bed bugs and helping you figure out how you got them.

We can detect even the slightest signs of a bed bug infestation. We will never do a treatment without showing you live bed bugs, shell casings, poop spots or their eggs. There are K9 services but the K9 is only as good as its handler and we have found that most K9 companies here in Colorado are not accurate. Any time a K9 service is used, bed bugs should be visually confirmed.

Our goal is to assess the time, length and size of the infestation so ultimately, we can help determine where the bed bugs might have come from.

Customized Treatment Plan

Once we have found live bed bugs, we will design a customized plan of attack exclusively for your residence. Our tailored plan takes into consideration the specific layout of your home, the number of affected areas, clutter factor of each room and the extent of the required prep list that will be done by our customer.

Killing Bed Bugs With Heat is Safest and Most Effective

Hot Bugz prioritizes the health and safety of your family, your pets and your home. We choose heat extermination because it is the safest and most effective method for killing bed bugs vs. chemicals, steam or freezing.

Heat extermination has only been around for 15 years or so but it has become the most lethal effective tool in the industry when it comes to killing bed bugs.

The heat goes everywhere and finds the bed bugs and their eggs. It penetrates your furniture, walls, baseboards, and belongings.

Our State of The Art Equipment

Hot Bugz has always been committed to using the lastest cutting-edge heat technology and equipment. Over the years heat equipment has changed but the process remains the same. As long as the heat is applied properly and the thermal death point is reached, bed bugs have no choice but to die. We promise to stay committed and evolve as technologies changes.

Eco-Friendly Solutions

Hot Bugz is dedicated to responsible and environmentally friendly pest control. We understand the importance of preserving your healthy living environment while eliminating bed bugs from your home. Heat extermination is by far the best way to accomplish this.

Chemical treatments take three applications over a 30 period. Each spaying adds more harmful chemicals and you have to get it on the back of the bed bug before it has a chance to work.

Steam and freezing are Eco-Friendly but they are too hit and miss because you have to know where every egg and bed bug is to apply that method.

The Hot Bugz Process and The Three Phases

At Hot Bugz, we’ve honed our bed bug removal process to perfection to ensure that your single-family residence is bed bug free. Our methodical approach encompasses several key phases, each designed to deliver comprehensive and lasting results.

Preparation Phase

Before we begin the actual bed bug elimination process, it’s essential to prepare your home adequately. This phase involves several critical steps:

  • Education: We provide you with detailed instructions on what needs to be done before treatment. This includes guidelines for drying and bagging bedding and clothes, as well as removing clutter from the infested areas.
  • Clearing the Floor and Closet: We ask that you pick up anything that is not furniture and place it on a table, dresser, chair or desk so we can drive heat across the floor to the walls.
  • Crack and Crevice Treatment: Bed bugs often hide in cracks, crevices, and seams. It is wise to seal up those hiding spots so bed bugs cannot escape there. We pay special attention to those areas to ensure no bed bug escapes our heat.
  • Discard Unwanted Belongings: Everything we own could be a hiding place for bed bugs so we ask that you minimize as much as possible by discarding unwanted belongings.
  • Isolation: In some cases, we might recommend isolating infested items in plastic bags to prevent the spread of bed bugs to other areas of your home.

By following the Hot Bugz Prep List, you will increase the success rate of the treatment and decrease the probability of having to do a second heat extermination.

Treatment Phase

Upon arrival our bed bug technicians will strategically set up the heat system and do a walk through to insure that the Prep List was completed properly.

  • Targeted Application: We employ a combination of heaters and fans tailored to your specific infestation. These treatments are strategically applied to areas where bed bugs are known to colonize and hide.
  • Heat Treatment: Our goal is to reach the thermal death point of 135 degrees or above before moving to less infested areas.
  • Follow-Up Inspections: To ensure the effectiveness of our treatment, we conduct follow-up inspections. This allows us to verify that bed bugs have been successfully eliminated.

Follow-up and Monitoring

Our commitment to your satisfaction doesn’t end with the treatment. We understand the importance of long-term protection against bed bugs:

  • Post-Treatment Guidance: We provide you with guidance on how to prevent future infestations, including tips on maintenance and identifying early signs of bed bug activity.
  • Regular Monitoring: We may recommend periodic follow-up inspections to ensure there are no signs of bed bug resurgence. This proactive approach helps catch any potential problems early.
  • Open Communication: We ask our customers to maintain an open line of communication after a heat extermination and report any new bed bug activity. If you have any concerns or questions, or require a post inspection, our team is always ready to assist.

By combining meticulous preparation, proper execution of the heat extermination process, and ongoing monitoring, Hot Bugz ensures that your single-family residence remains bed bug-free long after our initial visit. Your peace of mind and satisfaction are our top priorities.
