Bedbug Prevention Program
We heat treat all our donated items to prevent the spread of bedbugs in Winnipeg. We accomplish this with our two bedbug eradication chambers which heat up to 150 degrees. This provides a chemical free method of ensuring bedbugs are stopped “dead” in their tracks!
Our bed bug treatment program
Heat treatment, officially known as Thermal Remediation, is one of the most effective solutions to treating bed bugs, as it does not require the application of pesticides. Through the use of specialized machines, we raise the internal temperature of our eradication chambers to 60-65 degrees Celsius and maintain it for 4-5 hours. This creates an extreme environment which will kill bedbugs in minutes.
Bed bugs and bed bug eggs are killed once air temperatures reach the “kill zone” of 125°F (52°C). Our generators produce temperatures of 145°F (62.7°C) or higher using forced convection technology.
Our 20 foot insulated trailers are specially outfitted to be insect eradication chambers. They connect to our heat generators and will treat the contents of an average apartment in about four hours.
