With alternative ways of controlling pests, the convenience of the no tent treatment for termites and bed bugs makes it a perfect, affordable solution. Heat fumigation beats tenting.
Your home is your castle, a place of refuge, relaxation, and family. And there is nothing worse than finding out that your home has become infested with unwelcome house guests like termites and bed bugs.
Termites can do permanent damage to your house, while bed bugs can leave you covered in bites and at the mercy of thousands of bloodthirsty insects. If your home is infested with termites or bed bugs, you will need to treat your home to get rid of them.
Luckily there’s no need to evacuate your house and fumigate it as we did in the past. There are other options when it comes to treatment for termites and bed bugs that don’t force you to tent your home, and offer other benefits as well.
No-Tent Treatment for Termites and Bed Bugs
Unlike pest control methods of the past, you no longer have to leave your home and have it tented and fumigated. There are two options for treating termites and bed bugs that have proven effective and convenient for customers: heat fumigation and chemical spot treatment.
Heat Fumigation Treatment
A new method of treating termites and bed bugs called “heat fumigation” involves using high heat to kill the insects. This usually involves a pest control professional using specialized equipment to raise the temperature in the walls of your home to between 120 to 140 degrees.
The temperature needs to be high enough to kill bed bugs, termites, and their eggs. For bed bugs, this means a temperature of at least 120 degrees, and for termites, it means the interior of the wood must reach at least 135 degrees for 30 minutes.
Chemical Spot Treatment
Pest control professionals can also use a method called “chemical spot treatment.” For termites, it involves injecting chemicals that kill the termites into the wood they are in, which is effective for localized infestations.
For bed bugs, it involves removing the infected material, like bedding or furniture, and spraying them with chemicals. The chemicals can last up to three months, keeping the bed bugs at bay for an extended period of time.
Benefits of No-Tent Treatment for Termites and Bed Bugs
Using these methods that don’t require tenting your home offer plenty of benefits. When you tent your home, the tarp is large and heavy and can damage your gutters, shingles, and even your chimney. You also don’t have to trim back any shrubs or trees like you would if you tent fumigate.
Another benefit of using no-tent treatment is that you don’t have to remove your medication, plants, food, or other belongings from the house. During fumigation, anything that is living or meant to be ingested must be removed from the house to avoid contamination.
And finally, with non-tent treatments, you don’t have to leave your house for days at a time. The process can be completed in a day, which makes it far more convenient.
