Heat Treating Cockroaches & Bedbugs
Terminix provides specialist heat treatment services to treat bed bugs, cockroaches and other pest infestations.
Cockroaches like to live in temperatures similar to humans and breed quickly when the temperature is between 20 and 30 degrees. To treat cockroaches, our heat treatment system is operated at 50 degrees and is lethal to cockroaches.
Once a pest problem has been reported or identified by our canine detection services our heat treatment equipment can be deployed. The heat treatment equipment is fully mobile and allows us to treat rooms in high rise locations.
Heat treatment is a fast and effective method of resolving pest issues and enables the room to be available for use in hours rather than days.
