Bed Bug Heat Treatment Is Becoming a Preferred Method of Treatment

Bed bug eradicating heat remediation demonstrates success and is now available to the local market
Braman Termite and Pest Elimination, a leading provider of pest management services in southern New England since 1890, today announced the availability of bed bug eradicating heat remediation treatment that is demonstrating success alone or in conjunction with traditional methods of elimination. Research by scientists at the University of Kentucky has determined that bed bugs have evolved to thwart  one of the most common active ingredients used in insecticides by breaking it down, rendering some insecticides ineffective. Bed bug heat remediation responds to this problem and is also becoming the preferred method of treatment for those with allergies or other concerns about the use of insecticides.

“Bed bug heat remediation is a viable alternative to insecticides and very powerful when used with them,” said Jerry Lazarus, third-generation owner of Braman. “Not only is heat remediation incredibly successful, it is also the most convenient bed bug treatment option, requiring minimal preparation and only one service.”

Braman successfully eliminates bed bugs with a variety of methods including both insecticides and heat remediation, however the continued surge in bed bug infestations led the company to expand its menu of bed bug eradication offerings. The heat remediation process includes heating a home to 135 degrees Fahrenheit, using fans to circulate the air throughout the environment where the temperature is sustained for several hours to kill bed bugs and their eggs.

Braman, which has five service centers serving southern New England and eastern New York, takes an integrated approach to pest elimination that includes both non-chemical treatments and state-of-the-art chemical methods that are safe for people, pets, and plants. Over the years they have developed a reputation for identifying and eliminating pests for residential and commercial customers in all types of environments, including the hospitality, housing, healthcare, educational and food related industries ranging from manufacturing to retail.

The company is also known for its exceptional customer service, which earned it a 2012 Super Service Award from Angie’s List.
