|Heat Treatments are Suitable For:-|
Heat treatments produce the most thorough and fast method yet devised for eradicating insect infestations.
It is a chemical-free process which can be employed over large or small areas so it is very safe and fast. Since it eliminates insects at every stage of their life cycle, from eggs to the adult insect, it completely destroys the infestation.
The heat treatment works by temporarily turning the affected area in to an oven. The temperature is raised to just over 55 degrees Centigrade by a liquid syrup which travels through insulated pipes to strategically placed heat exchanges. The heat exchanges emit air which is hot and dry, creating a lethal environment for insects at every stage of their life cycle.
The heat kills the insects in two ways: denaturing the protein in their bodies, and causing dehydration by disrupting the waxy layers on the outside of their bodies. This affects the eggs, larvae and adult insects so the entire infestation is destroyed. Also, since the heat affects every part of the property it reaches all the places the pests could be hiding, which may be missed through fumigation techniques.
The process in monitored with heat probes which feed information back remotely to a laptop where trained pest control technicians ensure that the entire space reaches the required temperature to eradicate the pests, but does not become too high to cause structural damage.
Heat treatments can save businesses a lot of time and money. Where fumigation may take days, or even weeks, this process can be completed in merely hours.
Here are some examples of how heat treatments are used to create maximum efficiency:
These are just a few examples, there are many more cases in which heat treatments can be effective, for instance even trains and buses can be treated in this way. Get in touch on to find out more.
