Maximize Your Bedbug Heat Treatment

When it comes to getting rid of bed bugs fast, a heat treatment is going to be your best solution. Heat treatments are a one day treatment that requires little to no preparation and offers the most effective means of elimination.
The drawback is that they are also still relatively expensive. So if you are going to shell out the money for one of these heat treatments, you will want to think of a few things in advance.
Lets start at the beginning, back when you got the inspection. Was it a bedbug K9 that came out to inspect or a technician? You will want to ask either one to also inspect your car if they didn't already do so. You don't want to pay all that money, leave for the day with bedbugs in your car, have one get into your shoe, and bring a live one beck into the home to potentially re-infest the whole house again.
If there are bedbugs found in your car you may want to plan to coordinate the heat with a car fumigation. Some of your larger pest control companies will offer this. It takes some coordination, but the car and the house should be done on the same day.
The other thing to think about is how you leave your home on the day of treatment. You don't want to put on your sneakers that may have bedbugs on them and put your winter coat on that may have bedbugs, while your wife grabs her pocket book that may have bed bugs in it and leave. All you are doing is throwing thousands of dollars out the door with a heat treatment that will fail because you brought the buggers back into the home when you returned that night.
So what to do? Well, to start off, put the outfit, your sneakers, and your winter coat into a hot dryer for a half hour. When they have been heated, put the outfit in a large zip lock bag and your sneakers in the same. Put your coat in the car (assuming there are no bugs in the car) and then then next morning take your shower, get dressed in your bed bug free cloths, and leave immediately. Leave the purse behind, take only your identification and some money.
This is how you have a successful heat treatment.

I have been trying to find something on pest control. I have been finding bugs all over my home and I am not enjoying finding them.

I am trying to find some pest inspection in Downers Grove, IL. It is a very small place and it is hard to find these type of businesses locally. Do you know of anyone here?

I have been trying to find pest control in Calgary. I am having lots of issues this year and I really need them to be taken care of.

How can you do your own pest control? I've heard it's pretty easy but I'm having trouble finding tips.

Emily Merrell said...

My husband and I bought a new mattress at a yard sale last week. When we woke up after our first night sleeping in it, we were completely covered in bug bites. We just really need a solution on how to take care of bed bugs. We can't see any, but we know they're there.

I really like the idea of using heat treatment as a way of getting rid of the pest. This was something I hadn't really considered until I read your blog. Does it also work with rodents?

I finally got rid of my bed bugs. Now what is the best way to get rid of mice? My brother showed me http://www.abcwildlife.com/mice-control.html so I have a professional resource. I would like to know if there is a home remedy though.

I didn't know a heat treatment could get rid of bed bugs. Thanks for sharing that, I'll ask our pest control company about it. We've been pretty free of bed bugs for the past few years. Hopefully we can keep it that way! Thiago | http://pestexinc.com/

Edmund Wells said...

I have had a crack on the floor of my kitchen ever since I bought the house and because of the crack I always got bugs coming up through the crack. I am kinda grossed out by bugs and I'm mostly scared of spiders. I think its time to call pest control.

I have been waking up with small bites on my arm for the last couple of mornings. Could this be due to bedbugs? I just have never had bedbugs before, so I don't know what the warning signs are!

How does a heat treatment work? I know when I had friends with bed bug issues, they had to evacuate for a whole week. Is there a way to prevent the bugs?

I know that I leave the bug control things to the experts. That way I know that things are going to be taken care of and there wont be bugs in my home. The fact that they can do heat treatments for bedbugs is really cool. I had no idea that they even did something like that.

I really like that there are ways to deal with bedbugs. Pest control is quite an amazing tool. I would love to become certified in its general application.

My family has been dealing with bed bugs for three months now and have not tried heat treatments. I would imagine that they would eliminate the bugs and be very effective. Thanks for sharing, this is very helpful.

I think I may have bed bugs but I'm not sure. I often wake up in the middle of the night and it feels like I have lots of bugs on me, but I don't see any or feel any when I itch myself. What can I do to stop this from happening?

I couldn't believe how many mice were in my shed. There were probably 40 of them running around. My dad and I killed most of them with shovels. http://www.azext.com/scottsdale_pest_control/

Bed bugs are such a scary thing to think about. I really admire people that are willing to take care of them for us. I cannot imagine anything worse than sleeping with bugs. I am hoping that with pest control I will be able to keep my house pest and bed bug free.

My husband has been traveling out of town for the last few weeks and when he came home I noticed some bites on his skin. Turns out there were bed bugs at one of the hotels and he got bitten by them. Now I am trying to kill them and get them out of my husbands clothes. I will have to try the heat treatment cause I need to make sure they die.

Gerald Vonberger said...

You mean they can get in your car as well? Oh man I really gotta get this checked out. I keep waking up with little red bumps and everyone tells me it's bed bugs. I wonder how liable the apartment building is for that as well. Either way, I really need to get started on this heat treatment thing!

Thanks for the information! Bed bugs have become a problem in my neighborhood. They've just become a problem in my house a few days ago. It really helps having information about how to best maximize the results of my bed bug heat treatment.

Definitely worth knowing! One of my friends is getting a bed bug treatment right now. She actually had to move out of her house for a couple of days. The treatment should be done soon, though. Thiago | http://www.gopestbendigo.com.au

Jessie Vera said...

I really need some pest control to come out and take care of an ant problem I've got going on. Last year I had bed bugs after coming home from backpacking and staying in sketchy hostels. I hope I can get this taken care of right away because it's driving me crazy. http://www.buginout.com/pest_control.html

Susan Hirst said...

I've been having trouble with bed bugs and I need to hire a pest control service. The little critters are everywhere. I will be sure to put all of my clothes in the dryer and seal them up in bags.

Gerald Vonberger said...

I lived in an area with a lot of cockroaches for about two years. They drove me absolutely nuts. And what's worse, is that they brought their little bedbug friends with them. We had to invent our own pest control devices to get them out. I'm glad I live somewhere where real pest control is available.

Think back to the first time you ever heard of Pest Control. The constantly changing fashionable take on Pest Control demonstrates the depth of the subject. Though Pest Control is a favourite topic of discussion amongst monarchs, presidents and dictators, spasmodically it returns to create a new passion amongst those who study its history. It still has the power to shock those most reliant on technology, who are yet to grow accustomed to its disombobulating nature. Though I would rather be in bed I will now examine the primary causes of Pest Control.

Jennifer Davies said...

Do "fogger" and "bomb" types work with bedbugs? I don't think I have them, but my son just got back from a trip to Mexico where he might have been in contact with them. I would love to sort out this problem before they become permanent house guests. Is there preventative pest control?

Dolores Brown said...

How do you get bed bugs? I would like to know how I can prevent getting them, because they sound terrible. It also seems like people have a hard time getting rid of them. It's a good idea to take preventative measures now rather than trying to fix it later. http://akpestcontrolva.com/

I hate any sort of little critter in my home. During fall, I do is get my house ready for the cold winter months. That is when I get creepy crawlers in my home.

I've never heard of the heat treatment. It seems really intense! I need something strong to get rid of the pests in my home. The termites seem to keep coming back. Is there anything I can do to get rid of them forever? http://www.dunrite.com.au/index.php/our-services/timber-preservation

Hendersonrose92 said...

Fumigating the car along with the house is a brilliant idea. I'm sure most people don't think about these things and end up wasting a lot of money. I should share this with a friend of mine who has had a recurring bed bug problem.

When I am checked for bedbugs I always have everything sprayed. I can usually just wash out the spray. The bug eggs though are hard to kill.

Last night when I went into my kitchen to get a drink I saw about three mice. I screamed and the all ran away. I don't know how many there are, but I need them gone. I really hope that I can find someone to come and get ride of them for me. http://www.heritagepestcontrolma.com/Residential-Pest-Control-Randolph-MA.html

Nancy Jorden said...

I agree with your comment about using heating to get rid of bed bugs. A couple years ago I worked at a resort as a housekeeper. One of the biggest problems we had were bed bugs. I learned it takes a lot of patience to get rid of them. We used a lot of heating in the room to get rid of the bed bugs. If I ever find a bed bug in my home, heating is the only way I will go. http://www.propest.com.au/index.php/about-us

It is mid December but there are ants in my home. How do these things survive during the winter? I know that my kids are messy eaters and leave crumbs everywhere. However, as I said; in my mind this shouldn't be occurring in December.

I knew that cockroaches were filthy creatures, but I wasn't aware that they could actually transmit something like Asthma to a child. It is information like this that really makes me want to bleach every inch of my house. I want to make sure that my children are cared for.

Quin Trent said...

I had no idea that you used heat treatments to get rid of bed bugs the best way. That would have been really good to know when I was dealing with bed bugs in my home. Plus, it probably would have been a good thing to especially get help from a pest control company. That way I could have gotten rid of them a lot quicker.
http://www.wallabypestcontrol.com.au

Gerald Vonberger said...

I didn't realize that heat treatment worked so well with bedbugs. It sounds like you could treat a smaller infestation yourself. The car treatment that you mentioned, however, seems a little more complicated. It's good to know that most pest control companies offer car fumigation services. http://www.eandrexterminating.com

Anonymous said...

There's nothing that grosses me out more than bed bugs. After having an experience with them in a past apartment, I'm extremely paranoid. I honestly prefer to have my house sprayed even when there's not a problem. It's better than waiting and dealing with an infestation. http://www.inspecteast.com.au

My roommates just move into a home and it's been great so far. One thing that we have had problem with lately though are unwanted bugs. We aren't sure how to take care of it, so we are trying to figure out ways that we can. This has some great insights on pest control, and I feel confident that we will get this taken care of soon.

Do you feel irritated or frustrated when you see bed bugs relying on your bed, furniture or part of the home. If yes then don't wait and assume that they will be going. You need to take pest control service or buy non toxic bed bugs spray in your home.
