Why Heat?

Heat is safe for people and deadly for bed bugs. Using heat and fans we can set up a convection of air that penetrates into small crevices and wall openings where bed bugs hid.

Integrated Approach

Using heat treatments we can destroy all stages of the bed bug life cycles but by also adding effective and safe chemical treatments we can keep bed bug infestations at bay.

History of Bed Bugs

Bed bugs are ancient insects and they have lived off hosts since time began. Studies have suggested that they parasitized bats first and then moved on to humans. The bugs inhabited the same caves where civilization began. Once close to eradication by using unsafe chemicals they are making a big comeback due to resistance, and international travel. Central Florida is extremely vulnerable to bed bug infestations.

The good news is that no communicable disease has been attributed to bedbugs. The bad news is the itching can be very bad and some people can actually have allergic reactions to bed bug bites.


Treatment costs are based on the square footage and type of dwelling to be treated. An integrated treatment is more expensive then a typical chemical treatment the presence of bed bugs can be emotionally and financially devastating. Quick effective treatment is key for a return to normalcy. An untreated problem will result in more cost if not addressed promptly.
