Common Bed Bug “Solutions” vs

Tri-Flo Commercial Bed Bug Heaters

Are you still not convinced our commercial bed bug heaters are the easiest and most effective solution for eradicating bed bugs?  So, you don’t have to just take our word for it, we have gathered some information to compare our commercial bed bug heaters to other common bed bug solutions.  This way you can see why our Eradi-Flo commercial bed bug heaters are the best in the industry — not only for easy set up, but also for effectiveness.

Traps vs. Tri-Flo Heaters

Just like there are traps for catching other unwanted pests such as mice, there are also traps for bed bugs.  Bed bug traps are designed to attract bed bugs (and other unwanted pests for that matter).  While traps do catch bed bugs, they are not a permanent solution to most infestations as it is nearly impossible to catch all bed bugs and their eggs — at least in a timely manner.  Our Eradi-Flo commercial bed bug heaters, on the other hand kill ALL bed bugs in as little as one day.

Steam vs. Tri-Flo Heaters

Another popular method for getting rid of bed bugs is with steam. A bed bug steam treatment is where you use a steamer to steam infested surfaces such as mattresses, furniture, baseboards, etc., to kill bed bugs, as well as eggs. While steam does kill bed bugs, the steam must contact the bed bug, which can be extremely time consuming, and you’re not guaranteed to encounter every bed bug in the infested room. Conversely, our Eradi-Flo commercial bed bug heaters only take a couple minutes to set up and then you can leave the room while the heaters do the dirty work for you — killing all the bed bugs while you have your hands free to get more things checked off your to-do list or to do something you love.  

Bed Bug Bombs vs. Tri-Flo Commercial Bed Bug Heaters

Bed bug bombs, also known as bug foggers or bug bombs, is a pesticide product that is released all at once to fumigate the infested area.  While bed bug bombs can kill bed bugs, they are not very effective.  Bed bug bombs only kill bed bugs that are out where the gas can reach — if they even kill them at all.  Not only does the bed bug bomb gas not reach bed bugs hiding in nooks and crevices, but bed bugs are also becoming increasingly resistant to the active ingredient, synthetic pyrethroid. Bed bugs are not however resistant to heat, which does kill bed bugs in hard-to-reach places and makes Tri-Flo commercial bed bug heaters a great permanent solution for killing these unwanted pests.

Pest Control vs. Tri-Flo Commercial Bed Bug Heaters

While pest control is an effective solution to getting rid of bed bugs, it doesn’t come without some negative consequences.  When you call pest control, you may have to wait days before a bed bug exterminator can make it out to your establishment, not to mention when they do show up, they tend to make quite the scene.  With Tri-Flo commercial bed bug heaters, you can get rid of your bed bug problem immediately and discreetly, without having to pay someone else to do the job!

Discard Infested Items vs. Tri-Flo Commercial Bed Bug Heaters

Just throw it away! To “get rid” of bed bugs, many people will simply throw away their infested furniture.  While throwing away infested furniture does help get rid of bed bugs to an extent, it doesn’t get rid of the bed bugs hiding in the walls and other nooks and crannies that can lay eggs and cause further infestation.  Not to mention, unknowing people may pick up your discarded furniture and the bed bugs could spread to their living quarters.  With Tri-Flo commercial bed bug heaters, you can keep your hard-earned furniture without worrying about spreading bed bugs to innocent individuals who think they just scored on free furniture.

Why Chemical Do Not Work!

Using chemicals has become the norm for pest control companies and other businesses. But chemicals leave behind a residue that can be hazardous when someone is exposed to too much or for too long.

In fact, in 2012 the CDC — the Center for Disease Control and Preventionissued a warning about the dangers of bed bug pesticides and the dangers that can come from using too much pesticide or exposure to these chemicals.

Chemical treatments require, on average, 2.6 visits to completely eliminate a bed bug infestation. On top of that, industry data, scientific research, entomologists, and pest control experts have confirmed that the use of chemicals and insecticides for bed bug eradication is becoming less and less effective. That’s because bed bugs and other pests have evolved, making themselves resistant to certain chemicals by growing thicker exoskeletons or walking on their hind legs to better avoid over topical powders. 

But, in many cases, using a heat treatment for bed bug eradication is effective in just one use with a median of 1.3 visits across the industry.

For years certain chemicals were successful and later discontinued or banned. Another generation of chemicals and compounds has replaced them and been used for several decades. Now entomologists are finding that bed bugs are becoming resistant to many of the commonly used chemicals. The typical suggestion is to increase the toxicity and amount of the chemicals being applied.

The genesis of most pest control companies is the chemical industry. The use of chemicals and the licensing of them for eradication has been the accepted standard process against a myriad of pests. However, that is not the case with bed bugs, according to current scientific research and field applications of chemicals

Did you know that bed bugs and other pests are building up a resistance to different extermination chemicals? This means that the chemicals need to be stronger or continually reformulated in order to keep pest problems under control. Industry data, scientific research, entomologists and pest control experts have confirmed that the use of chemicals and insecticides for bed bug eradication is becoming less and less effective.

Bed bugs are now resistant to many of the current chemicals being used, and some strains have even grown a thicker exoskeleton that prohibits chemical effectiveness. Some strains can even walk on their hind legs over topical powders so they have no effect in contacting the body.
