ThermalRid will never use chemicals, dusts or other potentially toxic concoctions where you sleep. The ThermalRid process for bed bug remediation uses heat alone to trap and kill bed bugs wherever they hide in your home.
Dealing with bed bugs is more common than you would think! That being said, it’s not ThermalRid’s business to discuss your business. We have a fleet of unmarked vehicles and our technicians don’t wear uniforms displaying our logo. Discretion and your privacy is our number one concern.
ThermalRid is the most convenient way to get rid of these pesky pests for good. In fact, we can typically kill all of your bed bugs before you get home from work.Best of all, you can keep all of your belongings and avoid expensive replacement of furniture.
ThermalRid uses heat treatment to penetrate deep into walls, furniture and clothing to kill bed bugs wherever they hide. The specialized equipment we bring to every job allows us to heat your entire home to up to 140 degrees and hold the temperature for 5-6 hours while heat soaks into bed bugs favorite hiding spots.
Anything left in the home for that period of time would have dried out and died. With this type of treatment, it is clear ThermalRid is the best method for dealing with your worst nightmare as quickly as possible.
Common chemicals and sprays for bed bugs have lost their effectiveness over the years as bed bugs have adapted to treatments by developing a thicker exoskeleton. Unlike many other crawling pests, bed bug feet are non-porous so chemicals cannot enter their system by simply walking through a treatment area.
Since bed bugs consume blood as their food source, it is not a simple process to lure bugs into chemicals or poisons like ants. Currently, there is not a known chemical for treating the eggs and as such, multiple chemical treatments are required usually over a 6-8 week period to achieve complete irradication. That is, if you are lucky enough to have bed bugs that aren't resistant to chemicals.
Diatomacheos Earth and other dusts are commonly used to kill bed bugs. The powders are a very fine sharp substance that creates micro cuts on the bugs and causes the bugs to dry out over a period of 2-3 days.
Since the dust won't work on eggs, the bugs will have to hatch and the nymphs will have to cross the powder to be killed. It will take several weeks to obtain full effectiveness and we often see people that mess up their belongings by saturating bed rooms and carpeted areas.
DIY treatments are hardly effective and some can be downright dangerous! Bed bugs are the most difficult pest for professionals to control and home remedies are not strong enough and can lead to fires, destruction of personal property or cause the bugs to dig into walls, making them harder to treat.
Do not run around your house with a squirt gun full of alcohol and try to hit each bug or eggs. it will kill them, but when you light a cigarette... Let us just say, Google bed bug fire.
Steam treatments work on the same premise as our heat treatment method for killing bed bugs with one important difference. The professional has to hit each and every bug and egg individually with the steam.
Because of this, all pest control companies have to combine this method with chemical treatments to reach maximum effectiveness. Steam treatments rarely work in one visit, so you will have to stay home several times to let an exterminator into your house.
Fumigation is an effective but most expensive method to get rid of bed bugs. To complete this process, your home will be tented and gases will be released into your home for 72-96 hours before it will be safe to return.
The chemicals are 100% lethal, but extremely toxic and need to be handled by a reputable company. Fogs do not work because they are not strong enough to penetrate walls and you will find yourself throwing off many bombs before it works.
Our house smelled awful from the pesticides. The treatments did no good. Our home had been sprayed and dusted over a dozen times. The bed bugs were still biting my children. ThermalRid’s treatment worked the very first time..
I wish I’d found ThermalRid first. Another company used chemicals. It didn’t work. We thought the bed bugs were gone but two months later they were back. ThermalRid got ‘em the first time..
Another company told us the solution to our bed bug problem was steam and pesticides.They sprayed 13 times.The bed bugs got worse and worse. ThermalRid took care of our problem in one day.
Between pesticide and steam treatments that didn’t work and being told to throw things away by another company, I had spent over $10,000 and I still had bed bugs. Then I found ThermalRid.
I would recommend ThermalRid. They gave me the complete cost, up-front, and our bed bugs were gone in one day. We can sleep again.
