Bed bugs love the warmth of our homes and workplaces. But they can't take the heat of Thermal Remediation®. This heat treatment brings the ambient room temperature to around 49° - 57°C (120° - 135°F), stopping bed bugs in their tracks. Birch Fumigators’ pest control experts kill bed bugs in Edmonton and surrounding areas with this reliable method. Our family owned and operated business uses a new, larger system to provide a more thorough treatment.
Thermal Remediation® heaters gradually heat up the interior space in your home to a lethal temperature for bed bugs. Unable to survive in the extreme temperature for a long period of time, bed bugs and other stored product pests begin to die. All life cycles of these pests are affected including eggs.
Using high output portable heaters, rapid air movement fans and monitoring temperature sensors, killing bed bugs hiding in the nooks and crannies of your home is done reliably and safely. The 3 steps of bed bug heat treatment include:
Our electrical heaters heat up your interior space in a safe and effective manner.
We monitor the rising temperatures in real time to make sure they do not exceed 57°C (135°F). Our team makes sure temperatures do not rise too high and cause damage to your space and its contents.
With custom designed high temperature fans, we move the heated air evenly throughout your home in order to reach all insects. This method can reach various areas that may be unreachable by traditional pest control methods.
There are a few reasons:
There is a relatively large difference in the amount of preparation that needs to be completed compared to a spray treatment.
Heat treatments only require you to be out of your unit/house for the duration of the treatment.
A heat treatment is a once-and-done treatment whereas with a traditional bed bug treatment, your belongings may need to be packed up for weeks at a time.
Birch Fumigators has several heaters for bed bug heat treatment. With 8 heaters, we can heat up to 2,800 sq. ft. (equivalent to 2 two-bedroom apartments at one time). Using 10 heaters, we can heat upwards of 3,500 sq. ft. (equivalent to 2 three-bedroom apartments at one time). Our heat treatment service can be used in a variety of structures including but not limited to apartments, houses, camps, etc. Birch Fumigators will also bring in our own generator(s) to run the heaters so that we don’t use any of your property’s power.
