Reasons Why It Is Difficult to Eradicate Bedbugs
The difficulty involved in bedbug management can be attributed to various factors.
- They can go a long time without a host. : The tiny parasites multiply fast yet they survive without food for a long period of time. A scientific research reveals that a bedbug may live up to 550 days without blood meal while nymphs can go for months. So, you vacate an office for months and find bedbugs still surviving if you come back.
- Small Size: A bedbug is a flat, hardy insect, the size of a lentil. It is quite skillful at squeezing through minute spaces. You will find bedbugs behind wallpapers, below floorboards, or between electrical plates. Successful extermination is achievable only if every living bug is found and killed. This is not easy without an expert’s help.
- A high rate of population growth: They lay multiple eggs. A female bedbug lays 500 eggs in her lifetime and only in a few months, her offspring are mature enough to reproduce. So, a few bedbugs can grow exponentially when introduced to a conducive environment. In a single year, bedbugs can grow up to 4 generation. Their ideal survival temperature ranges from 70⁰F to 82⁰F.

Target Locations for Bedbug Infestation
Since bedbugs feed on human blood, you will find them in close proximity to their host. In a hotel, bedbugs are found in rooms where customers sleep. In a hotel room, the favorite spots for bedbugs are bed frames, box springs, and on the furniture close to beds. They don’t just bite at night. Bedbugs are also a major concern at waiting rooms where there is a huge congregation of guests and clients. Anywhere that people rest or sit is a good place that these parasites find convenient. For instance, if you visit a movie theatre and stay for more than an hour, a bed bug can target you and perhaps you will carry it to your home. Similarly, you can find bedbugs inside taxis.
Heat Treatment versus Pesticide Application
There are myriad benefits of using the heat treatment method to control bedbugs which surpass the use of chemicals. As far as pesticides are concerned, repeated treatments have to be adopted. The problem with chemicals is that they remain on surfaces for long periods of time and they can have negative impacts on the health of employees and clients. But with heat treatment, everything and everyone is safe. The possibility of injury is very minimal with heat treatment because there is no risk of chemical misapplication.
Don’t forget that bed bugs can develop resistance to pesticides but there is no way they can escape heat treatment. A few decades ago, certain pesticides were considered the most effective bed bug killers but today, they have become almost useless against bedbug infestations. Manufacturers may continue to develop newer pesticides but the fact remains that their application will forever be an uphill battle.
For these reasons, our company relies on heat treatment for bedbug management and we only use organic pesticides where the method is inapplicable e.g. treatment of materials which are heat-sensitive. With this technique, there is absolutely no possibility of developed resistance. There is no danger of chemical exposure to employees or business assets.
We have a number of heat-treatment units we can use in different situations around Napa. We normally heat a room above 120⁰F. This heat is enough to kill bedbugs and their life cycles, no matter where they are hiding.
