Bed Bug Eradication & Extermination

Temperature Data Loggers Monitor the Eradication of Bed Bugs

Bed bug infestations are on the rise in the United States. The troublesome biting bugs are increasingly found in hotels, motels, college dorms, apartments and homes. They are also found in office buildings, movie theaters and even dry cleaners.

Bed bugs had all but vanished from the U.S. in recent decades. What’s behind the resurgence? Experts point to increased travel, greater resistance to insecticides, and lack of awareness in today’s society.

One effective way to eradicate bed bugs is with heat. Thermal Heating Extermination is best left to experts using the correct equipment. The process requires that the entire infested area be quickly heated to above 45°C (113°F). This process usually involves closing up the space and using a portable heat source to increase the temperature quickly for a specific length of time.

Small battery-operated data loggers are placed in the small cracks and crevices that bed bugs inhabit, and the data from the loggers will confirm the desired temperature was achieved at every spot in the room. Some models allow for remote monitoring of the temperature inside the room from up to 300 feet away. Monitoring the disinfection process in multiple rooms at the same time saves time and money because the heat does not need to run longer than necessary.

Data Loggers, both wireless and non-wireless, are perfect for monitoring a room and capturing critical temperature data without opening the door during the eradication process. Loggers are available in a variety of price ranges and features.
