How exterminators can defeat them

First of all, in any case, the DIY pest control option is not a good idea. Bed bugs are extremely vulnerable to high temperatures and some insecticides, though now they have grown increasingly resistant to the latter. As chemical treatment needs bagging or removing many household items and even throwing some away, the inconvenience combined with the presence of harmful chemicals at your home doesn’t make it a very suitable option.


Freezing treatment


Using the freezing treatment, the exterminators blast the bad bugs for you. This treatment uses pressurized carbon dioxide, “snow”.


Heat treatment

A popular method is where the exterminators use large electric heaters in your home, raising up the heat to about 135 degree F for the heat treatment. This treatment works by drying up the bugs’ bodies. When the temperature is set above 118 degree F, they die quickly but the trick here is to expose every single corner of your place to that temperature. That is the reason why you cannot just do it yourself by turning up your home thermostat and sweating it out for a while as like that, it won’t get hot enough. In fact, with this the places where bed bugs like to hide will stay much cooler than the open areas. Don’t worry, an experienced bed bug expert will always use sensors to keep on checking the temperature in all the nooks and crannies. They will keep the heat on for an hour or more hopefully killing all the bugs and their eggs in your home. Though this heat will not damage most of your household items, you will still have to remove certain things like, pets, oil paintings and meltable plastics.
