Most people are familiar with chemical treatments for bed bugs and other pests. The main challenges with chemical remediation are that it's time-consuming, can end in loss of housing items, and it's never 100% effective. A leading alternative to the chemical option is heat remediation. But, how effective are bed bug heaters?
Bed bugs can always re-infest an area. Whether that's a house, apartment complex, or business, there's always the possibility of the bed bugs coming back. However, one way to mitigate that hazard is to kill the bed bugs at all stages of development. One major advantage of heat treatment is that it kills bed bugs at all stages of life, whether they're eggs, larvae, or mature adults. By killing the eggs now, it prevents them from hatching in the future, which could result in additional treatment being needed later.

Bed bug heaters and blowers can be used to raise the temperature of your entire home, so that bed bugs don't have the opportunity to simply hide out until the threat passes. Of course, it's important that escape routes be thoroughly sealed, so the bed bugs can't simply migrate somewhere else and return later.
