Bed Bug Heat Treament is the best eradication method

Heat treatment van

Heat treatment is environmentally friendly and has been proven to completely get rid of infestations.

Bed bug heat treatment involves putting infested items in protective capsules and then pumping in hot air. The temperature is monitored to make sure there are no cold spots that would allow bugs or eggs to survive.

The benefits of heat treatment

Reduced ‘down time’: treated areas can be used as soon as the treatment is over. There is no need to wait for pesticide residues to disappear, making the eradication fast.

  • Immediate eradication - A single treatment kills all bugs and eggs in that treatment area.
  • No chemicals – Before heat treatment came along, methyl bromide was used to kill bed bugs. ‘Lethal methyl’ is an extremely powerful fumigant. Heat treatment is a direct replacement for it.
  • Much cheaper - One heat treatment is much cheaper than using chemicals, which often require multiple treatments. There are no secondary costs for disposal of untreatable items either.

The Merlin difference: cutting-edge heat technologies

Merlin have developed cutting-edge heat treatment technologies that have earned us the reputation as a leader in the field in London, the UK and abroad.

Over the last decade we’ve developed a number of new heat innovation products that have been used around the world.

  • We’ve built different sized heat units – from 3kw to 300kw – this means we are more time- efficient and environmentally friendly.
  • In partnership with an insulation developer, we have developed a 21 layer heat blanket that reduces heat loss through a treatment capsule. This means we can treat larger areas with smaller heaters.
  • We have invented a cutting-edge monitoring system which means our clients can log into the treatment data stream in real time. This has been useful when our clients are in different countries. For example: eradication in hotels or cruise liners.
  • Our mobile heat treatment service was initially developed for the hospitality industry. We devised the system so luggage could be treated overnight in cases where the customer had experienced an infestation. Our mobile system can eradicate bugs from most small items that are infested.
  • Along with our mobile service, we also have offsite heat treatment facilities in Surrey, Sussex, Nottinghamshire and Cambridgeshire where we can treat larger items such as furniture.
