Why is Bed Bugs Heat Treatment So Much Better than Using Chemicals?
Historically, bed bug treatments have primarily used chemicals to reduce and control the pest. Recently, pesticides have shown to be ineffective in managing infestations with single bed bug treatments. An informal survey of pest control operators conducted by an entomologist at the University of Massachusetts found that 68% of all bedbug infestations require three or more treatments, 26% require two treatments, and 6% require just one.
Another concern with pesticide use is the development of resistance to the pesticides used in the treatment of bed bugs. The Integrated Pest Management Association found that by 1956, DDT resistance was so widespread that the control method had to be changed to Malathion. Results from current research conducted by the University of Kentucky show that bed bug resistance to insecticidal products that have pyrethroids as an active ingredient has become significant. The excessive use of pesticide solutions may result in the bed bug developing greater resistance to current methodologies. Oftentimes this leads to overcompensating by increasing amounts of chemicals. This can be a dangerous practice. Clark's Heat Treatment is a simpler control methodology which alters a bed bug’s natural environment, making it lethal to the bedbug.
Pesticides can also pose a threat to the environment. DDT was an effective chemical in significantly treating bed bug occurrences in the United States before it was banned in 1972 because of the reproductive effects to birds from chronic exposure to DDT. Bird exposure to this insecticide mainly occurs through the consumption of aquatic and/or terrestrial species that have been exposed to DDT (WHO 1989). Like other chemicals, DDT was able to work its way through the ecosystem and cause adverse health and reproductive effects to many animals in the food chain.
Finally, some people may be sensitive to chemicals as a result of neurological or other medical disorders. These people may not have the option to use chemical solutions as part of their control method. Clark's Heat Treatment is a non-chemical process and therefore is the practical solution for people with chemical sensitivities and is ideal for treating health care facilities, hospitals, and schools where chemicals are not an option.
"Already used by many bed bug victims, IBBRA provides the help of some of the world’s leading bed bug management companies that have built a framework designed to help customers at the critical junctures of the bed bug education and remediation."
Mostly absent from the U.S. for the past sixty years, bed bugs are making a speedy comeback. Increased international travel and immigration, along with the loss of effective insecticides, has helped this insect spread faster than any other urban insect pest.
The bed bugs that are infesting homes today are the descendants of cave dwelling bugs that originally fed on the blood of bats.
When humans began living in the caves, the bugs began feeding on humans. Later, when humans moved out of the caves and started their
agricultural civilizations, the bugs moved with them.
Since that time, humans have carried bed bugs all over the world.
