Unfortunately, chemicals are a fairly common way to take pest and bed bug infestations into your own hands. But different research is showing that pests are finding ways to become resistant to these chemicals. For example, some bugs have started growing thicker exoskeletons or walk on their back legs to avoid chemicals that are on the ground.
But all pests have a certain amount of heat they are able to withstand. For bed bugs, that is between 117° and 121°F (up to 49.4°C). So when you have a Tri-Flo industrial electric heater that will hold a temperature of 121° F for an extended period of time, you’ve found a chemical-free solution for ridding your property of bed bugs or other pests.
But let’s look at the numbers. On average, treating bed bugs and pests with chemicals takes 2.6 visits. But, according to other studies, a heat treatment for bed bugs and other pests takes an average of 1.3 treatments. Not only does this save you the time and cost of multiple treatments, but it also keeps your property free from dangerous chemicals.
