Does Heat Treatment Work For Other Insects?

Insect heat treatment is an exciting new method of extermination with many benefits. The biggest of these is that it kills 100% of insects, while using no pesticide. This method of pest control is usually advertised as a solution for bed bugs. But does heat treatment work for other insects?

What can be killed with insect heat treatment?

The theory behind this method of pest control is simple. Basically, no living creature can withstand extreme temperatures. There is a point at which everything dies, even bacteria and viruses.

The scientists who work on these issues have studied this subject in depth. They have determined the various temperatures at which certain pests simple die. For example, bed bugs die at 40-50 degrees Celsius.

The reason why insect heat treatment is so exciting is because it has so many advantages. One of these is that you no longer need pesticides to kill pests. What this really means is that you don’t have to have your home filled with poisons. Many pests are also resistant to pesticides, which is why this method is now preferred. No pesticides also mean you can go back home immediately after the treatment is completed. With some pesticides you would have to wait days until it was safe again. What this also means is that heat treatments are perfect for people with pets or small children.

As we’ve said, insect heat treatment also kills all bed bugs. This includes adult insects, their larvae, and also eggs. Many pest control methods only kills the mature bugs. The problem is that their eggs soon hatch and the infestation starts all over again.
