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.

What Our Clients Say About Us

You Kill Bedbugs saved us! They were efficient, knowledgeable, and fast! We needed immediate action for our problem and were so relieved once the heaters started. All the advise with the carpet tape was so helpful and it was easy and chemical free. Than you so much.

Katie in Calgary, Alberta

There’s little point in wasting words, so I’ll get right down to brass tax. As I did my research, I found out about the heat kit. Initially I was skeptical, but must say it really does work! Steve was very informative on how to operate the equipment and very responsive to all my inquiries. Thank you guys for bringing my bedbug nightmare to an end.

Tatiana in Calgary, Alberta

When my tenants told me about the bed bugs they found in my rented condo I researched the internet and found the website of You Kill Bed Bugs. I contacted them and they explained how to get rid of bed bugs and how to put two-sided carpet tape around the perimeter to see if any were coming into the condo from adjoining units. I was able to use the heater and fan to heat the condo rooms to 55C which would kill the bugs and the eggs at the same time. This is much easier than using a chemical spray which could be harmful to persons residing in the rooms. The chemical treatment requires further spraying after the first treatment to be sure all the bugs hatched from eggs previously laid have be killed. It has been four days since I used the heat kit. To date we have not seen any bugs.

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!

Lori Prokop in Calgary, Alberta

Just submitting a testimony for our recent heat treatment for bed bugs. We had a problem at our previous apartment which unfortunately moved into our new apartment with us. We had You Kill Bedbugs come in right away to handle the problem. they were quick to set up, through with instruction, and the treatment was easy to handle once the technician left. We have been bedbug free for a week now thanks to this heat treatment. Highly recommended! Thanks very much

You Kill Bedbugs provided a good service. They explain how the equipment works and also give you extra tips for effective treatment! The equipment is solid, it heats up the room to over 50 degrees celsius. At this moment, 2 days after the treatment the biting stopped.

K.K. in Calgary, Alberta

We had an infestation of bed bugs in our apartment blocks and used Extherminate Safe Heat Kits in our building. Using the heating units we were able to bring the suite temperatures up to 130 degrees Fahrenheit in a couple of hours and the heaters are setup to kick off automatically at 130 degrees so you just set them up and let them go. We heated the apartments at the temperature for 3 hours, as we didn’t want to have to come back and do this again. The units heated the rooms as well as the walls to temperature. Thanks for the help in showing us how easy it is find and kill the little buggers.

Ty Oler, Palm Springs Investments in Lethbridge, Alberta

Hi Steve…Thank you for your services and help. I found that you helped to make sure that all set up was done correctly so that none of my personal items were ruined and the process seemed to have worked seamlessly. I would recommend you in the future.

Stacia Z in Calgary, Alberta

We had bedbugs problem in our house. Every night there were bedbug bites on few of us. My kids were so scared specially my daughter, she refused to sleep by herself in her room. Therefore I started search on the internet how to get rid of this problem. I went through different treatment options like different chemical treatments. But these chemical treatments require lots of preparation. Then I came across heat treatment and found research articles those were backing the heat treatments as a best option to get rid of bed bugs. Therefore I decided to call a few companies and finally decided to go with youkillbedbugs because they are purely bedbug treatment guys and their charges are way better than other companies. So I called Steve Stein and discussed about my problem. He was very professional, friendly and listened my problem very carefully I was so relieved after talking to him. After few days he came to my house with heat treatment equipment. He did whole setup in my house. Now my house is completely bed bug free and I owe all this to these guys. I highly recommend youkillbedbugs company. Thank you guys.

I used the bed bug heat kill kit from youkillbedbugs.com and it was a very simple and effective way to treat bed bugs. A good company to work with.

H. Kennedy in Calgary, Alberta

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

Heather W. in Edmonton, 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!

S.W. in Calgary, Alberta

I would have liked a little more time with the technician to better understand the process. We didn’t realize what the power requirements were. Our stove and dryer are both gas so we didn’t have the right outlets. It took several hours to find a combination of outlets that didn’t blow the breakers. We did get it worked out eventually with a call to the technician, but it was a frustrating start. I can see how this system would be very manageable for an aprtment or a small bungalow, but in our 1600 sqft two story it was difficult. That being said if it worked I will be thrilled. And it did!

Paul D in Edmonton, Alberta

Hey, just an email to say that as of yet we have not found any damages that what we talked about. Or bugs!!

Vana in Edmonton, 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.

Kathy in Calgary, Alberta

This is in reference to the rental of your heater for the infestation of bed bugs at my parents apartment in Medicine Hat. We really appreciated your knowledge and willingness to help us. The heater was turned on Saturday noon and was not turned off until the following Saturday. Once the heat stabilized and reached the 50 degrees it did not quit once and kept the heat at that steady degrees. It was a God send for us and our parents and we felt reassured it really did the job you said it would do. Thank you for your services and full Kindness.

Roger & Noella L in Medicine Hat, Alberta

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.

I am writing to testify that You Kill bed bugs had helped us a lot in eliminating bed bugs in our home. Before, we had so many bed bug bits, we thought it was an allergy until we went to a family doctor and confirmed to us that is was bed bug bites. We can’t sleep all night and we move from different areas of the house to sleep and get there is a lot of itchy bites in the morning. Until we learned about You Kill bedbugs they were so helpful teaching us where bed bugs come form. After the treatment in our home, we feel so relaxed everyday, very happy, joyful and always looking forward to sleep at night because nothing bother us anymore. We strongly recommend You Kill Bedbugs.

Sincerely Ahaliza R in Calgary, Alberta

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

As bed bugs are a growing concern here in Calgary, I feel reassured that You Kill bedbugs equipment is easy to use and effective in the use of killing bed bugs. After 24 hours of using the heating system in one room I had immediately found dead dried out bed bugs!! I would recommend the services of You Kill Bedbugs Ltd to anyone in the future with a bed bug problem. Thanks for everything!!

I am glad You Kill Bedbugs was able to rent me their kit on such short notice. I was able to operate it without any trouble and everything worked great. I’m hoping that heating my bedroom/bathroom was enough to eliminate all the bugs. It sure was a lot cheaper than doing the whole house, so I’m glad the heating kit was an option.

Cherie D in Edmonton, Alberta

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.
