Bed bugs are one of the most annoying and hard-to-get-rid-of invasive pets homeowners face. Due to their small size, bed bugs are notoriously difficult to identify (besides when they leave bites on people) and can be hard to eliminate, leaving homeowners with a larger bed bug infestation than they previously thought. Northwest K9 Bed Bug Detectives is changing the pest control game with innovative methods including bed bug-sniffing dogs for identification and heat treatments for the best bed bug removal service in Seattle! Keep reading to learn more about these revolutionary heat treatments and contact us today!

The Power of Heat

Heat is a powerful tool in the extermination and pest control services for effective bed bug removal due to their inability to withstand high temperatures. Heat treatments are 97 percent effective and have been proven to be the “gold standard” in bed bug treatment methods. Not only can the heat penetrate a variety of surfaces, including furniture and behind baseboards, but this pest control method can be done in one day.

The Advantages

The major advantages of using heat treatments for bed bug removal include:

  • Non-toxic
  • Eco-friendly
  • No chemical residue
  • Kills bed bugs at all stages, including eggs
  • Preparation for heat treatments is much simpler than other methods
  • There is no need to wash, dry, and bag your clothing
  • There is (usually) no need to dispose of your furniture

How Does It Work?

Northwest K9 Bed Bug Detectives offers the best bed bug removal service in Seattle with our successful heat treatments. During this process, the room or building is heated up to at least 122 degrees Fahrenheit with the ambient room temperatures reaching up to 145-150 degrees Fahrenheit. The temperature is then held at this level for two hours to ensure thorough pest control.
