While pesticides used by licensed professionals in the United States are generally considered safe when handled and applied properly, as insects grow increasingly tolerant and resistant to these treatments, greater quantities of these chemicals must be used to get results. At the same time, the increasing spread of bed bugs drives amateurs and scam artists into the industry, hoping to save some money or make a quick buck off of someone’s misfortune. Unfortunately, this can lead to the gross misapplication of pesticides, and the lack of skill in handling them can leave harmful or even lethal doses of bed bug pesticides coating every surface of a home, including cutting boards, silverwear serving dishes, and tables.
With these risks in mind, some are turning to so-called all-natural pesticides and mixtures that are advertised as having devastating effects on bed bugs. It is important to remember that natural does not inherently mean safe – Nightshade, Scorpions and Rats are all-natural too, after all. And with many of these bed bug control solutions being home-made concoctions or backyard creations, many have not undergone any testing by the EPA, FDA or any other regulatory board.
Why take the risk, when a 100% safe alternative exists in the form of thermal pest elimination? The heat treatment process and equipment allows us to eliminate bed bugs and many other insects, rodents, vermin, and other hazards without exposure to toxic or harmful solutions. No chemicals, toxins or pesticides are used in our all-natural bed bug extermination techniques, so none could cause any risk to you and your family. Environment-friendly electric or propane heaters are used inside or outside of your home.
