Kill Bed Bugs Safely and Effectively with Heat Treatment—No Toxic Pesticides



If you have bed bugs in your Toronto home, you will want to arrange for their prompt removal by a professional, trusted Toronto pest control company; preferably without toxic pesticides being sprayed all over your home and the beds where you and your family sleep. Thermal Remediation® is a highly effective solution that uses heat to destroy pesticide-resistant bed bugs. For effective bed bug control in Toronto, Greenleaf Pest Control is pleased to use the Thermal Remediation® method to eradicate bed bugs in locations that require the utmost in safety for people and pets, including:


  • Health care facilities, including hospitals and long-term care facilities
  • Hotels, motels, and resort properties
  • Camp sites
  • Apartments and condominiums
  • Universities and other school campuses
  • Single family homes
  • Offices and commercial buildings


The temperature used by your Toronto exterminator during Thermal Remediation® is between 45-55° C, which is the temperature required to penetrate bed bug harbourage areas. Not only is Thermal Remediation® safe, effective, and completely non-toxic, the dry electric heat also effectively kills the entire life cycle of bed bugs—no eggs or bed bug larvae are left behind to cause a reinfestation. When Thermal Remediation® is used, bed bug eradication is complete.


Benefits of Heat Treatment for Bed Bugs in Toronto Outweigh Conventional Pesticides


  • Minimal or zero pesticide usage inside living environments
  • Faster, more effective elimination of bed bug infestations
  • Less preparation required prior to heat treatment
  • No need to discard furniture or other belongings


Another major benefit of Thermal Remediation® is that preparation is minimal. Rather than moving heavy furniture and ensuring that every small item is removed, you can leave most items right where they are in areas that will be treated with Thermal Remediation®. In fact, it’s better to leave your possessions where they are customarily located in your Toronto home so that the heat treatment will rid them of bed bugs, as well. Wherever bed bugs and eggs can live—clothing, bedding, furniture, TV, computers, books, and other items that are customarily in your living space—it’s important that the heat treatment be applied.


With Thermal Remediation®, the infested area is heated to the appropriate temperature and then maintained for several hours to ensure complete eradication of the bed bug infestation and the bed bug lifecycle. The heat is circulated using fans, and wireless sensors are used to monitor temperatures throughout the treatment area(s) during the process. In some cases, an application of residual insecticide dust may be applied into the cracks and crevices and adjacent rooms or units as a longer term defence.


After Thermal Remediation® is complete, your Toronto bed bug extermination team will remove their equipment, and then conduct a professional Canine Inspection with Tracker— a NESDCA trained dog—to make sure that all bed bugs are gone.
