Chances are, this whole thing is new to you. We never had to deal with Bed Bugs growing up. Some of our parents never had to deal with them either. The closest we got was the whole "Goodnight, Sleep tight, and Don't Let the Bed Bugs Bite". Discover about thermal bed bug treatment at http://www.bedbugsandbeyond.ca/.

A lot has changed since then. What was once just a saying is now very real for many people and businesses. Bed Bugs are here to stay and our tools to fight them are futile at best.
Lately, some technology produced from the water restoration business called Structural Pasteurization has been embraced by our industry. Structural Pasteurization involves heating structure or a home or drying.
The pest control industry has taken exactly the idea and adapted it to benefit from the one weakness that was universal which their eggs and all Bed Bugs share. Their eggs and all Bed Bugs will die at approximately 113 degrees Fahrenheit.
It is not quite that easy, and in fact, there's quite a little more that goes into it such as big, finely calibrated machines and equipment, and to not mention the technical training that each technician needs to go through so we do not burn down your house.
In years past we would treat with a mixture of substances (none of which I'd want my kids sleeping or sitting and many of that the Bed Bugs have assembled an extremely substantial tolerance to), steam bed frames and mattresses, and have the consumer wash and dry clothes on high heat.
