Vehicle Bed Bug Treatment

Vehicle bed bug Heat treatment / Steam treatment

Hotels, offices, libraries and even daycares have been hit by bedbug infestations. Now they’re in cars, buses, trains, planes, cruise ships etc. The bed bug is an adept hitchhiker, easily latching onto luggage, bags and purses to hitch a ride to its new home. Bed bugs wind up living in the seats of airplanes, buses & vehicles if the environment is hospitable. Their eggs can be nestled in the fabric seams. They infest fabric and carpets and hide in cracks & crevices. So it’s no surprise an automobile interior can be an ideal environment for bed bugs.

Bedbugs are more likely to survive in transit buses, trains, airplanes & cruise ships where a large number of daily passengers sit on the seats and offer the opportunity to carry the critters to and from homes. Another potential hazard is taxis, which also cater to various clientele daily. Luckily, taxis and transit vehicles often make use of wear-resistant vinyl upholstery and hard plastic seating, which are less hospitable to vermin.

Vehicle bed bug treatment – Smaller vehicles

For smaller types of vehicles  we offer steam treatment at our facility in Nanaimo with our Cimex Eradicator Commercial Bed Bug Steamer that uses supercharged steam up to 356 degrees Fahrenheit for immediate kill on contact.

Bed bugs are extremely difficult to kill and and are developing immunities to common pesticides. It’s biologically impossible to develop an immunity to extreme heat. They are extremely vulnerable to heat and will be killed at temperatures of over 48ºC (120ºF). Pests such as bedbugs, dust mites and other allergens along with their eggs are killed on contact. Using heat / steam is an extremely effective and chemical free way to kill these pest along with E. Coli, Salmonella, H1N1 and other bacteria or viruses without leaving any harmful chemical residue behind.  The great advantage is that it will kill all bed bug stages including the egg.
