Turning Up the Heat to Safely Eliminate Bed Bugs

New Bed Bug Heat Treatment Introduced
in Las Vegas

K-9 Sweeps, the only pest control company that focuses exclusively on bed bugs and the first in the Las Vegas area to offer bed bug dog inspections, is now unveiling the most effective and environmentally-responsible way to eliminate bed bugs – Bed Bug Heat Treatment. This proven heat treatment method is eco-friendly, replacing chemical pesticides, and involves state-of-the-art high tech hydronic heat to completely eliminate bed bug infestations with one treatment.The process takes just a few hours from start to finish compared to the multiple treatments needed with other pest control options that are not as successful. 

Adult bed bugs are about 3/16” long and reddish-brown, with oval-shaped, flattened bodies and can often be mistaken for tick nymphs, cockroach nymphs, or carpet beetle larvae.For those unfamiliar with bed bugs, they can be extremely difficult to detect and eliminate.

According to a study at the University of Minnesota, the ideal temperature range for killing bed bugs is between 113 and 122 degrees Fahrenheit.“To be completely bed bug-free in as little as 6-8 hours, we heat treat your property to 135-140 degrees,” says Joe Restifo, K-9 Sweeps chief operating officer.“Using our new method, the preparation is minimal; there’s no damage to furniture and other household items, as well as no chemicals left behind that could pose health threats to family members and pets.”

He added, “It’s really groundbreaking -- we now have the unprecedented flexibility and power to eradicate bed bugs without the use of dangerous high-voltage equipment or harmful chemicals.”

Restifo explained that the bed bug thermal equipment being used by K-9 Sweeps is bio-diesel-fueled with heat generated by six heat exchangers using (HTF) Heat Transfer Fluid, allowing for over 300,000 BTU’s per hour using only one standard 115 volt outlet.

“This treatment is as green as it gets given the components and method we are using for heat treatment,” he said. “It’s also the safest way to eliminate bed bugs, as well as clothing moths and other pests, making it ideal for both residential and commercial customers. And, unlike traditional bed bug extermination, you do not have to throw out beds or furnishings; all of the rooms in your house will be bed bug-free within hours.”

Restifo emphasizes safety as key to this service “because indoor room temperatures are monitored via wireless technology and we strategically place our internal fans to ensure even heat distribution.With bed bug heat extermination, the heat is the insecticide and we effectively and safely circulate it evenly and everywhere to get the job done.”

K-9 Sweeps was founded in 2008 to provide a full range of services for detecting and exterminating bed bugs.K-9 Sweeps is the only pest control company in the Las Vegas area that focuses solely on bed bugs including bug dog inspection services, and a vast array of treatment options --Cryonite, Dry Vapor Steam and HEPA Vacuums – and now, an advanced heat treatment system.A member of the National Pest Management Association and the Nevada Pest Control Association Company, the K-9 Sweeps bed bug canine teams are certified annually by the World Detector Dog Organization (WDDO).
