Get rid of your Bed Bugs! Chemical-free heat treatment in Kamloops BC
In recent times, we’ve noticed a global resurgence of bed bugs, including the heart of British Columbia. Bed bugs can infest not just residential homes, but also businesses like hotels, schools, restaurants, hospitals, and care homes. At Heat N Sleep, we’re your trusted bed bug exterminators throughout Kamloops, North Thompson, and Merritt. Let’s talk about how we combat these pests effectively.
Comprehensive Bed Bug Inspections and Control
Bed bugs are crafty creatures. They don’t live on their hosts like lice, but instead, they hide in hard-to-find places such as furniture cracks, wall crevices, and feed on humans and other animals when they’re inactive, often while they’re sleeping. To counteract these pests effectively, we’ve identified key inspection areas that we meticulously check:
- Mattresses: This includes seams, buttons, tags, and handles.
- Box springs: We inspect plastic guards, remove the material covering the underside and check the wood frame.
- Furniture: We inspect seams, buttons, and joints of headboards, bed frames, hollow caster legs, beside furniture, drawers, and cupboards.
- Other areas: We don’t leave any stone unturned. We inspect behind electrical switch plates and receptacles, telephones, clock radios, televisions, under loose wallpaper, picture frames, mirrors, blinds, curtains, and books.
Our advanced control methods treat all these areas in each bedroom, extending to couches and upholstered chairs in living rooms, family rooms, and recreation rooms.

Ground-Breaking Aprehend Bed Bug Treatment
Our latest offering is Aprehend – a non-toxic, ready-to-use oil formula of fungal spores called Beauveria bassiana. This biopesticide is applied at low volume application rates in strategic locations to impact bed bugs in and around their harborages. Here’s how it works:
- Spread of the Biopesticide: When bed bugs cross the Aprehend-treated area, they carry the fungal spores back to their harbourage areas, transferring the spores to the entire colony.
- Germination and Penetration: Within 20 hours of contact with a bed bug, the fungal spores germinate, like a seed, and penetrate the cuticle of the bed bug.
- Elimination: The fungus colonizes inside the bed bug, leading to its demise. All life stages, sex, or feeding status of bed bugs come in contact with Aprehend die within 4-10 days.
Superior Heat Treatments for Bed Bug Elimination
For those particularly resilient bed bug infestations, we offer Thermal Remediation (heat treatments). The process involves our electric heating system applying heat to a room at lethal target temperatures of around 125-140 degrees F to eradicate all life stages of bed bugs, including their eggs. The target temperature is maintained for between 2-3 hours on average.
Once the target temperature is reached, our technician begins rotating items throughout the unit to ensure even heat penetration.
In some severe cases, we may recommend combining our heat treatment with the application of a residual insecticide to the exterior cracks and crevices of the treatment area.
