A pest management strategy specifically designed to combat bed bugs, cockroaches, and dust mite infestations. To generate steam, you need hot boiling water. To produce enough steam to treat a bed bug infestation, you need a commercial steamer. For this pest control treatment to work, the steam must be trapped inside the impacted area. We utilize large fans to force steam into the impacted area through a flex duct. The impacted room is completely sealed off from the rest of the home.
Does Steam Kill On Contact?
It depends on the temperature of the steam. Water must reach 100 degrees Fahrenheit to generate steam, which can go up to 212 degrees Fahrenheit. 100-degree Fahrenheit steam may not kill bed bugs on contact. 212 degrees Fahrenheit will kill bed bugs on contact. Of course, there are various factors that determine the time it takes to kill a full infestation of bed bugs.
If a pest control company guarantees 100 percent effectiveness of bed bug steam treatment, it is a fallacy. Bed bugs are known to burrow deep into mattress, carpet, and upholstery fibers, where they are protected from steam. Fortunately, they will only be protected from the steam for 15 or 30 minutes.
How Does Bed Bug Steam Treatment Work?
Steam treatment works by exterminating bed bugs. Bed bugs and other pests cannot survive in temperatures of 212 degrees Fahrenheit longer than 30 minutes. There are two ways to apply steam to kill bed bugs. A full-room application targets bed bugs trapped inside the room. Localized applications target specific areas in the room. This treatment is more suitable for infested mattresses, sofas, and upholstered chairs.
Does Bed Bug Steam Treatment Need To Be Repeated?
There is no guarantee a steam treatment will deliver 100 percent effectiveness. Steam is more effective in eradicating mild to moderate bed bug infestations with a single treatment. Severe bed bug infestation will require two or more steam treatments to deliver the maximum effectiveness.
The best way to approach a bed bug infestation is with an open mind. To ensure there is no disappointment, it is important to be realistic. What works for your neighbor’s bedd bug infestation may not work for every bed bug infestation.
