The Process Bed Bugs of Texas
Bed Bug Texas uses heat treatment equipment specially designed and used for bed bug control. The heaters will raise the temperature in the rooms to a high enough level to eliminate any bed bugs and eggs that are in the room being treated. Bed bugs and eggs die within 90 minutes at 118 degrees, or immediately at 122 degrees. During a heat treatment, the air temperature in the room is typically between 130 degrees to 140 degrees.
Specialty fans are used to help create a circulation in the room, like a convection oven, to make sure the correct temperatures are reached. A heat treatment typically takes between six and eight hours, depending on the condition of the area being treated. With our DIY process you have the equipment for 24 hours giving you ample time to treat several rooms if needed.
During the heat treatment we recommend removing from the area being treated any medication, ammunition, candles, fish and any other heat-sensitive items that may melt or be damaged at temperatures up to 150°F.
