Bed Bug Detection

The NightWatch Bed Bug Monitor Trap from BioSensory Inc. features new technology that literally attracts and traps bed bugs in an infested room.  After a completed visual inspection, NightWatch is utilized to detect if a room or unit has bed bugs, if a treated room is safe for occupancy, how bad an infestation is, or even to control and eradicate an infestation. The NightWatch™ Bed Bug Monitor Trap is scientifically designed to trap bed bugs with a lure, which uses the pests' own natural, biological attractants against them. By mimicking the CO2 (exhaled breath) and heat of a human body, NightWatch combines with this powerful lure to make one of the most effective bed bug traps available.  This can also be used before purchasing a new home, along with your termite inspection. 


Heat Treatment Bed Bug Control & Extermination

Most bed bug extermination treatments are extremely tedious, require multiple visits, a significant amount of preparation, and use insecticides to control the situation. Bed bugs are growing increasingly resistant, and there are fewer treatment alternatives as regulator restrictions have diminished many chemical options. However, with the use of heat, a bed bug infestation can be eliminated in a short period of time, without the use of chemicals, allowing businesses to resume normal use of the room quickly.

  1. Bring Heat.  Electric bed bug heaters are placed within the space; introducing and recirculating heated air with a target temperature not to exceed 135°F.
  2. Monitor.  Temperatures are monitored in real time from a remote location using wireless sensors to ensure lethal temperatures are reached without damaging the space and its contents.
  3. Move Air.  High temperature fans move heated air throughout the space to reach insects in cracks and crevices or high infestation zones.

    Advantages to Heat Treatment
  • Heat Treatment works where chemicals fail. No toxic fumes, no residue.
  • Kills every life stage from egg to adult.
  • Unlike chemicals, bed bugs are attracted to heat - they won't simply move to re-infest another day.
  • Infested items will not need to be thrown away.
  • The process is completed in one working day.

Heat Treatment is a proven non-chemical method of killing bed bugs. All life stages (adult, larva, and eggs) die within minutes at a temperature of 120 degrees F. Using 460 volt electric heaters powered by a generator. Heat Treatment introduces temperatures greater than 120 degrees F(lethal temperature) and less than 140 degrees F (content damaging temperature).

Heat Treatment monitors temperatures in real time with sensors placed in treated areas to ensure lethal temperatures are reached throughout the area and its contents. High temperature blowers are positioned to move the heated air throughout the space, through mattresses, baseboards, cracks and crevices.
