Bed Bugs: The Biggest Pest Problem Of Our Generation

Bed bugs have been called the biggest pest problem of our generation. A single bug can lay up to 5 eggs a day, and an impregnated bug can lay up to 15 eggs a day. With the ability to multiply so quickly, some sources state that you can have up to 20,000 bed bugs within 9 months and an estimated 1 million bed bugs in a year's time if gone untreated. Bed bugs do not go away on their own. They can survive for up to a year without feeding, so don't wait to call us at 615-671-7900 and schedule a treatment! We have specialized in bed bugs specifically since 2010 and can provide you with the best solution. 

Bed Bug Heat Treatment

Our most recommended and requested bed bug extermination method is our one-day, full-service heat treatment. Our process is completely different than other companies claiming to do heat treatments:

  • One day. Full service.
  • We kill bed bugs and the eggs. 
  • We bring our own heaters and generator to run the heaters.
  • We raise temperatures to 135-140 degrees, which is high enough to kill bed bugs, but not high enough to harm electronics or other items.
  • Our technicians are on property during the full treatment time and actively sift the heat through your belongings, which is highly important.
  • We are there for a work day's time, you may come home after the treatment.
  • You do not need to stay at a hotel overnight or be out of your home for 24 hours.
  • Minimal prep work. Items do not need to be laundered, bagged, or possessions thrown out.
  • We help you save your furniture, saving you money.

We can provide a supplemental perimeter treatment which maximizes efficiency and provides you with long-term protection. This is highly recommended.

Chemical Only Treatment

We do offer chemical-only treatments, however, chemical treatments are a long-term process. Chemical treatments do not kill the eggs, so you must prepare for multiple bed bug treatments over a series of 2-6 months until all eggs are hatched. Bed bugs have been evolving to be chemically resistant bugs, and we will recommend a bed bug heat treatment if you've had bed bugs for an extensive amount of time. 

Chemical treatments are a long-term treatment option, and they require maximum prep work for you as the home owner. All fabric items must be laundered, bagged, and some possessions could be required to be thrown out.

90 Day Bed Bug Warranty

THERMALRID will at no expense to the CUSTOMER retreat any previously treated areas/units that meet the following:

  • A standalone structure where THERMALRID has been contracted and treated the entire structure and full payment received.
  • For multi-unit structures, the CUSTOMER will allow for visual inspection of adjoining rooms. (Example: a room in the middle of the second floor is suspected of having an infestation: the inspector will check that room plus the rooms on either side plus the rooms over and under the suspected room. If additional infestations are discovered then the investigation must continue until a clean room is identified above and below, right and left of the infested room.) Every room/unit contracted and treated by THERMALRID will then be covered by the "90 Day Bed Bug Warranty"

Warranty is limited to one (1) retreatment and will only be performed after THERMALRID has been shown sufficient evidence of live bed bugs to support the need for retreatment (bites are not considered sufficient evidence) and Post Treatment Instructions have been followed. Warranty may also be voided under provisions contained in the Terms and Conditions and/or Preparation/Post Treatment Instructions for Bed Bug Heat Treatment or if there is any change of occupant or furnishings. Warranty begins on the date of first treatment.

Gentle Heat Is Generated To Draw Bed Bugs Out Of Hiding

As the room is slowly heated to 135-140 degrees, all pests including adults, nymphs, and eggs are destroyed wherever they are. They cannot hide from ThermalRid’s heat treatment.

There is a technician on site for the full treatment who actively sifts through your belongings to ensure all areas are exposed to heat. The home or building is monitored until all pests are dead, then the rooms are allowed to cool. Hotel rooms can immediately be put back in service with no waiting period. Apartments can be used immediately. All furniture and appliances can be used immediately, nothing has to be replaced.
