Bed bugs are a problem that no hotel owner ever wants to reckon with. The bugs are small enough to hide in luggage and clothing, making them easy to transport and difficult to detect. Once they’re in a hotel room, they hide in mattresses and come out at night to feed. The red welts formed by their bites are itchy and unpleasant, ruining the night for your guests and possibly causing future infestations when guests go home. Commercial bed bug heaters are a nontoxic, effective way to exterminate all bed bugs and eggs in your hotel without using toxic chemicals.
After learning about a bedbug infestation, the worst mistake you can make is to put off treatment, or only partially treat it. If you do not address the infestation, the bed bugs will breed quickly; a female bed bugs can lay hundreds of eggs every day. Using bed bug exterminator equipment as quickly as possible is vital to curbing the problem.
Many bed bug treatments require toxic chemicals. Incorrect application and usage of these pesticides can result in overexposure, and best use requires a pest management professional. Heat treatment for bed bugs requires no chemicals and kill all bugs and eggs. Additionally, heat treatments can typically be completed during a six to ten-hour day!
