Bed Bug Heat Treatment in Plantation Medical Facilities
It is an unfortunate fact that even medical facilities are susceptible to bed bugs. Fumigation is not an option in these settings, but heat treatment can be used to eradicate bed bug populations. At Florida Pest Control Center, we understand the urgent need to have a medical facility that is free of bed bugs.
Bed bugs are small blood-sucking pests that are capable of feasting on human blood. These parasites are commonly found in and around beds because of the easy access to sleeping human hosts, but bed bugs can be found in any area of a facility. Areas that are warm and provide access to hosts are most susceptible to bed bug infestations. Unfortunately, bed bug bites are usually the first obvious sign of an infestation.
Bed bugs can influence human health and normal business operations. The bite from a bed bug can result in irritated skin and an unpleasant rash. Symptoms of an allergic reaction may also occur in some individuals. Bed bugs are also capable of being infected by many pathogens that are common within a healthcare setting. In addition to the health concerns associated with bed bug infestations, these pests can ruin a business’s reputation.
Heat treatment for bed bugs uses the application of intense heat to kill the pests. Sustained temperatures exceeding 130°F can kill bed bugs. Heat treatments offer a method of extermination that does not rely on chemicals that may be banned in medical settings.
