Bed Bug Recommendations
There is clear evidence that Bed Bugs are developing a tolerance to pesticides and it is critical that homeowners understand that alternative measures need to be taken to protect you and your family from these ferocious pests. But, selecting a company that claims to use “heat” or “steam” just isn’t enough. Bed Bugs can tolerate temperatures up to 115-120 degrees Fahrenheit. Steamers have been tested and proven to work against Bed Bug populations. HOWEVER, homeowners should be cautious about the steamers used. Wet Steam vs. Dry Steam is critical in bedroom areas. The PSI and the temperature of the steam produced are two very important factors in this treatment method. Bed Bugs can not handle extreme temperatures. However, most steamers available on the market just cannot reach a temperature high enough to kill off Bed Bugs and their eggs. Mattress and box-spring covers are also an important step in treatment. Mattresses should never be treated with a pesticide. Bed frames, end tables, dressers, armoire’s, baseboards, windows, pictures, lamps, and any other items in the room should be inspected and treated properly with the heat. We use a combination of dry steam, mattress covers, diatomaceous earth and bed bug monitors to treat bed bug infestations. Breda also uses the Bed Bug Detection device to detect Bed Bugs in hidden wall voids.
With this treatment method from Breda, you really can sleep tight knowing the bed bugs won’t bite.
