Thermal Heat: Most Effective Treatment for Bed Bugs in Nanaimo
Nanaimo Pest Control understands that bed bugs can be one the most challenging and demanding pests someone can encounter.

Thermal Heat treatment is the most effective treatment against bed bugs… Period! And Nanaimo Pest Control has the most experience getting rid of bed bugs in Nanaimo, Duncan, Ladysmith, Parksville, Qualicum.
What are Thermal Heat Treatments? Why are they So Effective?
Simply, thermal heat treatments use specialized equipment to raise the temperature of a specific area, whether it is a house, office, apartment building, etc., above the threshold which bed bugs can survive. This temperature spectrum is referred to as the thermal death point (all living organisms have a thermal death point). Thankfully, the thermal death point of bed bugs is relatively low, between 48-52C. Research has shown, bed bug eggs can survive approximately 90mins in temperatures of 48C, while bed bugs and eggs die within minutes of exposure at temperatures of >51C. Heat treatment temperatures typically reach 60C within the treatment space. MOST INFESTATIONS ARE ELIMINATED IN ONE DAY!!
