Bed bug

Hoteliers and private households are sounding the alarm!

Until only a few decades ago, bed bugs were considered extinct, now they are here again. Pest managers blame resistance to insecticides, increased global travel activity and an increased sensitivity in society to the use of pesticides and insecticides. Once you have the little parasites in your house, it is not so easy to get rid of them again.

Bed bugs inflict unbearable itching, generally several bites in a row (the bedbug “street”), small spots of blood on the sheets, and a sweet-seeming smell in the room – these are sure signs of a bed bug infestation.

Thermo-Bug - Deadly in the fight against Bed Bugs & Co. Its strategy is heat!

HEAT - A treatment no insect can withstand, and to which it can never develop resistance. A tried and proven technique over many years in the USA and Europe, and more recently in New Zealand by Thermo-Bug and Alpeco. The same technique has been used in Australia from Tasmania hostels, to five-star hotels on the Gold Coast. Thermo-Bug is now available Australia-wide through Pest IT Pty Ltd. Hotels can purchase Thermo-Bug for use internally by housekeeping or use one of our local Thermo-Bug service providers.

Quite simply, the solution is Room HEAT Treatments.

No animal can survive heat of more than 55 degrees Celsius for long periods. Larger animals, such as humans, fare better. However, for smaller creatures such as insects, it is lethal in minutes. The Thermo-Bug system, available through Pest IT involves heating infested rooms to at least this temperature for a period of several hours. Furnishings and fittings are unaffected. The Bed Bugs (including eggs, larvae and adults as well as any other insects such as cockroaches or ants) are killed. The minute the temperature has returned to normal, the room can be reopened for guests. Hotels often remark on how clean and fresh a room is after such a treatment. Odours are virtually eliminated.

The treatment is 100 percent effective, it penetrates far into wall cavities, carpets, box-spring matrices, furniture and bed heads killing any Bed Bugs hiding there. Heat is something no insect will ever develop resistance to.

The Thermo-Bug System:

The use of two Thermo-Bug Compact heaters is used for an even and well dispersed temperature rise. The addition of a Thermo-Bug AirBlower in combination with the heater is highly recommended for even temperature distribution. To accurately measure and document the temperature distribution in the room we suggest the addition of a Thermo-Bug Data Logger.

The Thermo-Bug is a commercial and yet affordable heater system manufactured in Germany for use in hotels and private households. Thermo-Bug is also well suited to treating stored product pests, timber pests and the like.

The Bedbug Cimex lectularius

This bloodsucking ectoparasite insect attacks mammals, birds, and humans. Fully grown bed bugs have a length, when ungorged, of 4-7 mm and a yellow to reddish brown appearance. When gorged, they reach 9 mm in length; in such cases the abdomen becomes increasingly black. While the bedbug hides during the day, at night it goes out in search of a host to fund nourishment. At 18 - 22°C room temperature, the fully-grown animal sucks every 3 - 7 days for 3 to 20 minutes each time.

At ideal temperatures and with sufficient nourishment, a bed bug has a lifespan of up to 18 months. A female lays up to 300 eggs at an average rate of 3 per day.
