Because many bed bug treatments often require heavy application of insecticide, along with the replacement of bedding and furniture, Thermination Technology is unique in offering a solution that does not use harmful chemicals. This treatment requires a user to plug in a heater and wait an hour or two for the room to reach the temperature needed to kill bed bugs, typically about 130-140 degrees Fahrenheit. From there, the temperature of the room is monitored and maintained to ensure that it penetrates bedding, furniture, clothing, and other areas in the room where bed bugs are likely to hide. Once completed, the homeowner or renter simply needs to remove the heater and vacuum up any dead bugs.
Bed bugs can lay between one and five eggs a day, and over 500 in their lifetime. Chemical pest treatments can have difficulty in reaching all of the bugs, as a result, so multiple chemical treatments are usually necessary in most homes. By heating a home to the necessary temperature to kill bed bugs (over 122°F), homeowners and apartment residents can avoid paying for multiple treatments, and their bedding, furniture, electronics, and clothing hanging in closets will be treated.
Thermination Technology representative Richard Halbach, Ph.D., says that the company has received positive feedback from clients who have used the products, especially those who own multiple units. They have successfully treated hundreds of rooms with the assistance of their in-house maintenance staffs. "We know how much of struggle this problem has become, and what a customer and reputation nightmare it can be," says Halbach. "Thermination Technology simply offers the cleanest, most effective, and economical way to deal with the problem."
In addition to homes and apartment complexes, bed bugs can also live in hotel rooms, dormitories, and commercial properties. Thermination Technology offers several product lines available to managers and owners of these properties.
Thermination Technology product line provides property management with their own tools to contain bed bug infestations as soon as they are discovered and return to a clean, quality-controlled, environment the first time around. For more information, please visit thermination.com
