Types of Treatment
Steam, part of our integrated approach to treat bed bugs.
Bed bugs cannot withstand extreme temperatures and succumb to temperatures of around 118°F, with our Cimex Eradicator providing a flow of steam vapour at a temperature of 180°C. Heat is immediate and intense; killing adult bed bugs, larvae and their eggs on contact causing thermal shock. Our machines are fitted with a pressure switch that enables the steam pressure to be turned onto a low setting; this ensures that bed bugs and eggs are not blown away from the surface being treated.
Cryonite® CO2, the non toxic approach to treat bed bugs.
Liquid CO2 is transformed into an exceptionally cold, dry ice snow which is applied by the Cryonite® applicator spraying the carbon dioxide snow at -78º C. This freezes the insects upon contact killing them immediately.
In the UK the normal approach by many companies is to apply insecticides to treat bed bug infestations. The application of residual insecticides work by killing the insects upon contact immediately in its wet state and when dry will leave a residue that an insect can pick up when coming in contact with a treated area.
Insecticides certainly can have their place in the treatment programme and we may use them in some instances in an integrated approach alongside other treatment measures. However, we do not use or rely on this approach alone.
