Safe and Effective Bed Bug Heat Treatment Services in Calgary

HEAT TREATMENT PROCESS

Although there are currently several options available for getting rid of bedbugs, we recommend heat because:

Heat Treatment is Effective

Most exterminators use toxic chemicals to kill bed bugs but these chemicals are only effective at killing live bugs; they do not destroy the eggs. This often leads to re-infestation, requiring a second or even third treatment to exterminate the bedbugs completely. . Bed bug heat treatment in Calgary kills adult and juvenile bedbugs as well as bed bug eggs, preventing future infestations. Heat treatment also penetrates furniture, bedding and walls; thus killing bed bugs that are hidden deep within the cracks and crevices. In our experience, 92% of bedbug infestations are eradicated after a single treatment.

Heat Treatment is Fast

With our bed bug heat treatment in Calgary, you can get results fast. Because heat kills all stages of bed bug in a single treatment, we can take care of your bed bug issue in as little as 8 hours. Although, chemical treatments can be completed in an hour or less, follow up treatments are often required, leaving you with bedbugs for weeks longer than if you had used heat.

Heat Treatment is Convenient

Using heat treatment minimizes disturbance to your household. Heat treatment requires less preparation – there is no need to move furniture; no need to dispose of furniture and no additional treatments are necessary

Heat Treatment is Safe for your Family and your Belongings

Traditional chemical and pesticide treatments contain toxins that are not only harmful to bedbugs, but also to humans and animals. When used properly, bed bug heat treatment in Edmonton is extremely safe for you, your pets and your belongings.

extherminate™ equipment is safe and we have taken all precautions to eliminate any possible chance of a fire or damage to a structure.

Other Common Questions About Heat Treatment

What should I take with me on the day of the heat treatment?

  • Take as little as possible. The more you take with you, the greater chance of bringing a bed bug with you.
  • Items you should remove include:
    • live plants and any pets (including fish)
    • candles, crayons, lipstick, crafts held together with glue
    • Vinyl items – vinyl blinds, records
    • Medications (these can be placed in the fridge as well)
    • Refer to our extherminate™ User Manual for full instructions

What about my TV and other electronics?

  • Electronics, including TVs and computers, will not be damaged by heat treatment. We ask that you turn them off prior to treatment.
  • Refer to our extherminate™ User Manual for full instructions.

Do I need to throw out my mattress?

  • Toxic chemicals used by traditional methods are absorbed into your mattress and in most cases must be thrown away after treatment. Because our method does not use these chemicals, you can keep your mattress and that expensive bedding.
  • Refer to our extherminate™ User Manual for full instructions.

What should I expect after a heat treatment?

  • Your home and many of your belongings may still be warm. This is normal and your home and belongings will cool down shortly. Opening windows and doors can speed up this process.
  • You will find dead bed bugs after the treatment. These can be easily vacuumed up. You should not find any live bed bugs in your home. If you believe that you still have live bed bugs please contact us immediately.

Steve came out to treat the house I was living in which was infested with bed bugs. The team did a great job and heated the entire house thoroughly. I moved recently and rented the portable heater to treat my things(just in case). The We Kill Bed Bugs team are professional and friendly. They took the time to answer all of my questions and concerns. I would highly recommend this company for anyone else in a similar situation.

The heat treatment that You Kill Bed bugs offers is definitely the way to go for getting rid of bed bugs. The people are very friendly and give you lots of extra tips and facts to help make the set up and treatment easier. The equipment is kept clean and organized and easy to handle. The information guide that comes with it lists all the items that needs to be removed form the room before beginning which is a super big help in saving those items you don’t want damaged.

Since the treatment and making sure all the laundry was properly handled and cleaned before re entering the room we have had no problems since. The mission was a success!

We used You Kill Bed Bugs portable heaters. They were easy and straight forward to use. The management was courteous and returned calls promptly. We had an issue with the stove connection blowing the breaker and they made a suggestion to rectify the problem. I would recommend them for environmental solutions.

Sincerely Jullaina S in Calgary, Alberta

Once we realized what we were dealing with at our house, we did a lot of research to find out what to do about the situation. All the research we saw indicated that heat was the best solution, with much less likelihood of a re-infestation than with chemicals. I contacted You Kill Bedbugs for help. They were great and best of all, they solved the problem completely. Now several months later, we’re still all clear. A hearty recommendation form northwest Calgary!

Hey Steve,
As far as I can tell, the heat treatment seems to have killed them all. I cleaned everything up and have been inspecting constantly. No signs of them and no bites on me. I still get the creepy crawly feelings, but that's just me thinking about them.
I very much appreciated your help and diligence with this awful problem!
Thanks, Dean

Steve, we appreciate your help in this trying situation. Now I can sit on my couch without being attacked by a bed bug.

Recently our family and friends came back from traveling in Alberta where we discovered that one of our party found a bed big in her bed. We took precautions when we returned to our home but felt there were some signs of bed bugs. I was looking for an effective, eco-friendly system to clean my home with out using pesticides. I looked in the yellow pages after doing some research on the internet and found a company called You Kill Bed Bugs. We live in a small town some distance form Edmonton, but this company was more than co-operative in helping us with a take home system to meet our needs. They met me on the outskirts of the city with a portable heater and fan unit that could easily be transported to our home with 100 feet of power cords. A friendly young man thoroughly explained the equipment and how to use it. Wow, what and easy, effective machine. I felt confident that this heat method was doing it’s job to prevent any spread of an infestation. it was easily moved from room to room, following the instructions that were sent to me by email. Knowing how important it is to have a method which could penetrate into the hard to get cracks and corners, relieved any fears that some bugs or larva may be missed. With a growing concern in this country of bed bug contamination, I feel that this company and its safe effective system are the way to go. i would be sure to use this company again.

We found You Kill bedbugs on the internet and found it the most reasonable price of all the bed bug exterminators that we looked into. They also have the best guarantee of six months instead of the standard two months. The machine was easy to use and transport in our van. There was one day, 4 days into the treatment, where it stopped working. Steve was able to walk me through trouble shooting options until it worked again and even gave me a couple extra days for the time lost while it was down. He was very professional and responded quickly to my concerns. We have not seen any bed bugs since the treatment. All my research pointed to the fact that heat is the most effective bed bug killing option and safest for our children’s and our own health. I am so grateful to be able to sleep peacefully again…something I have not done since we found these bugs! Thank you so much for your help to rid our house of these pests!

Jenni I in Calgary, Alberta

This was a very simple system to set up and use even if it was a little hard to move from room to room in the house. The cables were bulky as well but the stove box worked great. The heat was amazing in the room and I had no fear of anything being turned to char. The pre-use instructions were also very helpful in making sure I didn’t have any damage to my stuff. Thanks for the easy remedy!

You Kill Bed Bugs Ltd methods truly work. This is the second time using the company at different locations and the heaters performed well. They got rid of all the bed bugs. Thanks again.

Fred in Edmonton, Alberta

I am writing a testimonial for my experience with your heat service. This summer my daughter returned from a day trip out in Kananaskis and had a couple of nights of consistent bed bug biting. I opted to be proactive and had a heat treatment done while we were away. My experience with You Kill Bedbugs Ltd. was very positive. our consultation was professional and thorough. I was also surprised and pleased to learn that the heat treatment kills mold as well. We have had some basement flooding in the past and mold has been a concern of mine for a few years. the house definitely is fresher and feels clean. A lot of dust and debris does get kicked up, nut after a good cleaning it feels better than ever. Also, no more bites. I would recommend this service without hesitation.

We had a bed bug problem for several months before we realized what it was. We didn’t want to do a chemical treatment as I was 8 months pregnant, so we found a company that used natural cedar soap. After three unsuccessful treatments we looked into other options and came across You Kill Bed Bugs. The owner is helpful and knowledgeable. He was able to drop off the equipment to us within 2 days of calling him. He set everything up and made sure we knew how to operate it. Here’s to hoping we’re bed bug-free forever! We would recommend this service to anyone.

This letter is to be used as a recommendation for the company You Kill Bedbugs Ltd. This was our first and hopeful last experience with bed bugs. You kill bed bugs and Steve were both professional and reassuring. From the moment of our call, their main concern was how best to rid our home of these pests and also what would give us the best peace of mind. All of the options were clearly explained and any questions were promptly addressed. If this problem ever arose again, my first and only call would be to You Kill Bed Bugs!

Eva P in Calgary, Alberta

What a relief to find something that is not chemical toxic. I handled the heating of my bedrooms by myself. This allowed me to work at my own pace. My contact Steve was polite and informative. I am very happy with everything.

AFTER PURCHASING THE BED BUG MACHINE IN 2014 WE HAVE APPROX 1262 HRS ON THE MACHINE. WE HAVE DONE A TOTAL OF 40 TREATMENTS ON INDIVIDUAL ROOMS WITH THE MACHINE. TO DATE I AM ESTIMATING THAT IT HAS SAVED OUR AGENCY ABOUT $10,000 IN EXTERMINATOR FEES. WE HAVE GREATLY BENEFITED FROM HAVING THE MACHINE, AND MANY OTHER AGENCIES IN THE COMMUNITY INQUIRED AS TO HOW WE KEEP ON TOP OF THE BED BUG SITUATION. AND WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND THAT THEY GET IN TOUCH WITH YOU TO GET A MACHINE FOR THEIR BUILDINGS. THANKS A LOT

We were very impressed with the service provided by Steve from You Kill Bedbugs. Steve was very generous with his time and knowledge to make sure we had everything we needed to be successful. He was always courteous, patient and professional in his responses to our questions. Finally, Steve was very flexible and understanding by working within our schedule to pick up and drop off the equipment. We would certainly recommend Steve and his company to both family and friends

Excellent fast and reliable service. Steve was great at explaining how the product works. Will recommend.

A small note does not reflect how much we appreciate your service. To highlight a few things that we absolutely love is 1: Discretion and arriving in an unmarked vehicle. No advertising helps to maintain myself in the community 2: Time, Thank you for arriving on a Sunday 3: Flexability and understanding are some additional strenghts of yours

We needed to do a second treatment, but other than that, everything went great, we don't seem to have any more issues, but we'll keep an eye out.

The exterminators brought in two devices that killed the bed bugs that were extremely bad in the 2 rooms. It was successful! Thank You
