How New Technology Wins The War On Bedbugs

Bedbugs can be a real big problem if not found soon and treated appropriately. Apart from ruining a good night’s sleep, these bugs can cause you to itch all over and even result in deathly bites.

One small bug stuck in your mattress from an old store is good enough to come into the house and spread like fire and cause a number of issues all around. These bugs feed on human blood, thus giving you some really nasty bites as they grow. There are a number of pest control services Glasgow has to offer that can keep you and your family safe from this issue.

Technology To The Rescue

While one can keep these bed bugs at bay using traditional methods such as washing, cleaning and airing mattresses regularly, the entry of technology has been received with open arms.

Here is how technology helps us combat this serious issue:

  • Devices

Today there are devices that can be attached to the legs of the cot. These devices are designed to catch or trap the bed bugs around them just like an insect trapper used in stores, etc. these devices then send out an alert about catching the bugs, after which a regular cleaning process can be followed to ensure the problem is contained and does not spread.

  • Thermal Remediation

This is another fairly new technology in play to help combat bed bugs. In this method, thermal heat waves are used on the bed bugs to kill them for good. Since these bugs have evolved over time and have become resilient to many chemicals that were originally used to kill them, this new technology promises to kill them all with just heat and no chemicals.

Heat is spread evenly and can penetrate through cracks and gaps, thus hitting all the bugs that tend to hide away from chemical treatments too. Since this is non-toxic, adjacent areas are not affected. One need not stay away from the area when this treatment is being done.

Why technology is gaining more importance here? As people get more conscious of the harmful chemicals being used, this noninvasive method is well received by the hospitality industry. As surrounding areas are not affected during treatment, it does not affect regular business.
