Bed Bug Heat Treatments
Bed bug infestations can be incredibly hard to get rid of due to their ability to hide in tiny cracks and crevices. Traditional chemical methods are often ineffective against today’s bed bug populations, which have developed a strong resistance to insecticides. Fortunately, Sleep Tight Bed Bug Control of Ohio offers reliable, long-term solutions that don’t rely solely on insecticides.
Heat treatment is one of the most effective tools in combating bed bugs, as it can kill all life stages – including eggs. Whole-room heat treatments have proven to be very successful due to the use of powerful fans which create convection currents that quickly raise the temperature. Recent research has determined the thermal death points (the temperature at which a bed bug dies) for live bed bugs (adults and nymphs) is 113 degrees with 90 minutes exposure time, however, eggs take 118 degrees with 90 minutes exposure time. Heat treatments are also becoming popular as they can safely raise temperatures to 135°F without damaging electronic equipment inside a room. At Sleep Tight Bed Bug Control of Ohio, we utilize all these methods to ensure long-term solutions without relying solely on insecticides.

Here’s What Our Client Say about Us
“I found Gary after searching relentlessly in my area for someone who could do a heat treatment for bed bugs. He traveled about 3 hours to provide service for us. The entire process was great. During our first phone call, he spent a lot of time educating me about bed bugs and later helped my family understand the heat process as well. He was very accommodating to needs and schedules. Gary started his business after having his own experience with bed bugs so I felt like he really understood what we were experiencing...”
Our Extermination Process
Heat is blown into the room and monitored by numerous sensors placed throughout the space, including in cracks, crevices, and hard-to-reach places. Our experienced professionals at Sleep Tight Bed Bug Control of Ohio can monitor temperatures remotely for several hours to ensure the effective extermination of all bed bugs from your premises.
The powerful fans are placed in strategic positions around the treatment area to create convection currents and start the eradication process once lethal temperatures are reached. Typically, it takes about four hours for wall voids and cold sinks to reach lethal temperatures – ensuring that all bed bugs and their eggs are eliminated. Sleep Tight Bed Bug Control of Ohio uses this method along with monitoring tools to ensure the successful extermination of any bed bug infestation on your property.
Bed Bug Prevention Treatments
To prevent the recurrence of bed bugs, Sleep Tight Bed Bug Control of Ohio applies a non-toxic spray on treatment after heat treating an area. This solution emulsifies and dissolves the waxy outer layer of bed bugs that come in contact with it, continuing to kill any potential pests for up to 6 months. By using this preventative measure, we can reduce the risk of new bed bug infestations on your property.
How To Prepare for Treatment
Before initiating our bed bug heat treatment extermination service, all living things must be removed from the property. This includes fish, plants, pets, people, and anything else living (except the bed bugs). Additionally, to protect delicate items and avoid damage caused by combustible or volatile materials such as ammunition, aerosol cans, and fire extinguishers, we ask that these items are removed prior to the service. Sleep Tight Bed Bug Control of Ohio will ensure your safety throughout the process.
At Sleep Tight Bed Bug Control, we understand the importance of thorough preparation before heat treatments can be performed. We offer comprehensive preparation services for our customers who may not have the time, ability, or mental capacity to do the necessary cleaning and reorganizing themselves.
