Bed Bug Heat Treatments Safe, Effective and Environmentally Friendly

To battle insecticide-resistant bed bugs, A. Amendt Pest Control is offering a line of Thermal Remediation® electric bed bug heat treatment equipment.

This safe, effective, and environmentally friendly process uses dry heat to kill the entire life cycle of bed bugs, while reducing the application of insecticides.

Bed Bug Heat Treatments

With equipment designed specifically for the application of heat to kill bed bugs, our highly effective process relies on three main keys to a successful treatment:

Apply Heat

Electric bed bug heaters are strategically placed; introducing and re-circulating heated air with a target temperature not to exceed 125°F for the controlled application of heat.


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.

Move Air

High temperature fans move heated air throughout the space to reach insects in cracks and crevices or high infestation zones.

We believe that successful control is more than chemical warfare. It is cooperative integration of many elements. The program we design for you will contain the proper mix of the following factors: communication, inspection, identification of pest(s) and damage, application of pest management procedures, and sanitation.

In pest management, familiarity breeds control. Our extremely low turnover rate means you’ll have the same technician time after time. He’s on long-term assignment to identify and be responsive to your special needs.

Not only that, We will provide extra service at no extra charge to resolve all continuing pest problems as specified in your contract, as long as sanitation requests have been met.

Thermal Remediation Heat Treatment for Eliminating Bed Bugs

Over the past 6-8 years, bed bugs have become an increasing pest problem in homes, apartment buildings, hotels/motels, commercial buildings, health care facilities, movie theaters, and public transportation throughout the United States.

A. Amendt Pest Control has been at the technological forefront in the battle against these human parasites. We utilize a wide variety of control and preventive techniques for these troublesome insects, vacuums, EPA-approved, low toxicity insecticides, and in some cases, entire building heat treatments.

Heat Treatment Overview

After carefully preparing a home for this type of treatment, A. Amendt Pest Control technicians apply heat to the entire structure. Industrial-sized space heaters are used for this process. Remote sensors are placed around the structure to monitor the heating process. Once everything in the structure is heated to 125˚ F., we can be assured of complete eradication of all stages of bed bugs and their eggs. This type of treatment may be completed in one day or more, depending on the size and complexity of the structure.
