Abell is also giving insects the Heat Treatment!
No, it's not a spa procedure. A heat Treatment literally turns up the heat on stored product or bed bugs. Pest infestations in warehouses, food processing facilities, apartments and homes can be removed through the heating process.
Heating not only increases the temperature making environmental conditions unfavourable, but also removes moisture from the air. Ambient humidity is very important to insect survival, and removing this moisture quickly dries out their protective cuticle. Increasing the temperature of a building or a specific room is possible with the use of specialized heaters, fans and other equipment.
A specific target temperature is required, and at this temperature it becomes too hot and too dry for insects to survive. The heating process eliminates the need for excessive and time consuming chemical procedures and the downtime associated with these procedures.
- Control is typically achieved in one visit
- Ideal for areas where traditional "cleaning and preparation" is a problem
- Ideal for advanced bed bug infestations
- Allows for treating multiple units at the same time
- Can be used as a green approach
