3 Most Popular Bed Bug Treatments:
Thermal Remediation has become quickly popular as an alternative to chemical treatment. The three most important keys of success in a Thermal Remediation is the heat, movement of the heat, and monitoring of the heat.
The idea of the thermal remediation treatment is to eliminate the bed bugs through the excess amount of heat ranging in the temperature range of 120°-140℉.
Bed bugs are ultimately attracted to heat; therefore they will most likely come out of their hiding places and quickly become affected by the Thermal Remediation treatment. This method of treatment is known to effectively kill bed bugs in all of their stages: eggs, nymphs, and adults.
-Freeze Technology (Cryonite)
Cryonite eliminates bed bugs through excessive amounts of cold temperature. The key factors in the effectiveness of Cryonite are CO2 and the combination of particle sizes and speed. The adjustment of the speed and size, allow the stream of particles to enter deeply through small cracks and crevices. Cryonite can be safely used on electrical equipment, clothes, and other sensitive accounts.
It leaves no residual and treatment sites can be safely re-occupied, immediately after the treatment.
Chemical Treatment is the oldest, most traditional way of getting rid of bed bugs. If chemical treatment is initiated in the early stages of an infestation, it can help control the number and prevent further spread of the infestation. Chemical Treatment could be the most cost effective treatment when correctly applied. Some companies in the Cryonite or Thermal Remediation business even recommend chemical treatment as a follow up treatment method for optimum performance. Chemical treatment may actually be the most cost efficient treatment method. The thermal remediation and Cryonite treatment are known to be costly although all three treatments are effective if done correctly.
