Types of Bed Bug Treatment
There are several bed bug treatments on the market with varying degrees of success. From steam treatment to heat and even freezing, there are many options to choose from. Some of the main types of bed bug treatments include:
- Steam. Steam is a completely chemical-free treatment option and kills bugs and eggs on direct contact. However, the moisture that is left behind can cause damage if not properly taken care of.
- Freezing (Cryonite). Freezing kills both bugs and eggs on direct contact and is a chemical-free alternative however it can only kill by coming into contact with the insect or the egg. There are no residual effects of our freezing treatment and this treatment does not penetrate materials.
- Heat Treatment. With the use of heat, a bed bug infestation can be eliminated in a short period of time, without the use of chemicals, allowing normal use of the room to resume quickly.
