3 Keys To A Successful Heat Treatment

At Pine State Pest Solutions, our heat treatments are successful because we follow a proven process every time. 

  1. Bring Heat.  Electric bed bug heaters are placed within the space; introducing and recirculating heated air with a target temperature not to exceed 135°F. 
  2. Monitor. Temperatures are monitored in real time from a remote location using wireless sensors to ensure lethal temperatures are reached without damaging the space and its contents.
  3. Move Air. High temperature fans move heated air throughout the space to reach insects in cracks and crevices or high infestation zones.
