Heat Treatment for Bed Bugs
Modern’s heat treatment provides a safe and highly effective solution for the elimination of bed bugs. During a heat treatment, portable, electric or propane heaters are placed within the infested area and the ambient temperature is raised to a lethal range of 120º-140º F. Fans are used to circulate the heated air throughout the space to reach bed bugs in all their hiding spots, while a trained professional monitors the temperature and maintains it via wireless sensors for several hours. Bed bugs have no defense against this extreme level of heat and this one-time treatment will kill all life cycles of bed bugs, from eggs to adults.
