Heat vs. Pesticides
Applying high heat is a more effective method to terminate a bedbug infestation in comparison to using chemical applications. Bedbugs are more resistant than ever to insecticides, meaning chemicals may not be able to kill all insect life stages resulting in remaining live bedbugs post-treatment. Whereas, bedbugs simply cannot survive at extreme temperatures making heat a better treatment option. Furthermore, only one heat treatment is necessary to eliminate an infestation, while chemicals usually require multiple treatments.
