“…machine was made of quality materials and will withstand the test of time…"

I represent a busy Wyndham Hotel in the Midwest and recently purchased a product from Pest Pro Thermal. My experience was excellent, the sales representative was knowledgeable and we were able to identify which product would work best at my hotel. When the product arrived, immediately upon unboxing it we could tell the machine was made of quality materials and will stand the test of time. We were given an instructional video for quick reference as well as a paper and electronic handbook. Operating the machine was intuitive and easy after the room is prepared. The results look to speak for themselves and we now feel comfortable having this tool at our disposal. Highly Recommend.

Hotels are always at risk of guests bringing assorted and unwanted pest infestations in with them, and chemical treatments have not been a dependable method of control for us.  Chemical treatments require toxic chemicals and extended blocking of rooms to be effective, (i.e. lost revenue).  And worse, re-treatments have been necessary 50% of the time for us, so additional pest exposure to guests, (more unhappy guests equals more risk of bad online reviews and more lost revenue).  In contrast, heat treatment can be done in one day and immediately returned to service, so the up front cost of the equipment is QUICKLY recouped.  Additionally, the equipment is of great quality and was tailored to our facility, so we expect many years of dependable service.  Heat treatment is hands down the best control method, and PestPro has been excellent to deal with, so we recommend them highly.  Thanks again for a great product and great service!

I’ve been doing business with PestPro Thermal Systems since 2014 using their equipment to do thermal heat jobs in NYC. Michael and the rest of his
team are professional and extremely helpful when it comes to anything having to do with killing bed bugs with thermal heat. They have helped me numerous times with different situations. I recommend their equipment and company to anybody. It's always a pleasure doing business with them.

Steve Alaimo - Biotech Termite & Pest Control - New York City


Once the panic subsided, we became educated on bed bugs only to realize they were nothing more than a common pest.  We decided NOT to use poisonous chemicals. Lots of exterminators on the web using scare tactics and saying that heat treatment doesn’t work. But we are living proof that it does work and it works great. We wanted to make sure the heat treatment worked before submitting a review. It was a once and done type of program.  Nothing could survive that kind of heat.  The infestation was mild because we got on it right away.  We only treated the bedrooms and we are happy to say we are bed bug free. Thanks again Michael.

We are a permanent SRO complex in San Francisco with multiple sites. Having fought pest issues with unacceptable results, we did thorough research and decided on the Pest Pro Thermal unit for our needs. It’s all steel construction was a big selling point as we will be moving it from site to site. That and having all its parts available through Grainger, and the ease of swapping them out. This unit has been extremely effective in treating our units and lowering our Pest Control costs. It will pay for itself quickly!

...nightmare of the hospitality industry.

I am the GM at Clarion Hotel & Conference Center in Tampa FL. We decided to invest in bed bug heat equipment to get rid of all unwanted critters and bugs that are a nightmare of the hospitality industry. We contacted the Denver manufacturer and our contact was Michael, who acted professionally, leading, assisting and helping us from the first step of our purchase process. Thank you! F.K.

We are a non-profit drug and alcohol recovery community in Commerce City CO.

Housed out of a refurbished hotel we have over 150 residents in our program at any given time. After struggling with multiple bed bug outbreaks over the time span of a few months and reaching out to several companies in the metro area and literally spending thousands of dollars we were at our wits end with bed bugs. After contacting Michael at PestPro Thermal we were invited down to their office to see their heaters in action. We were very impressed with the simplicity and efficiency of the units and ended up purchasing two heaters for our property. Michael and the team were very helpful checking out the property first hand and making sure that the units we were looking at were going to be enough for our room sizes as well as double checking that the supply to run the heaters was adequate. We picked up the heaters on a Friday and after fine tuning the process were able to heat individual rooms in about 6 hours and move to the next. We successfully treated an entire 5000 square foot floor over the course of the next week and have been bed bug free ever since.

We could not be more thankful to the team at PestPro Thermal for not only taking the time to make sure the equipment they were proposing would work for us but also taking the time to train myself and several members of my staff to feel comfortable operating everything.

We know there is no way to prevent bed bugs but we feel confident in moving forward that we can handle everything quickly and efficiently.

Thanks again!

We have been fighting bed bugs in our residence hall for three months. We were not quite sure what to do since it had been 22 years since we last had them. We hired a national pest control company and they tried for 3 months to get rid of the bed bugs and were not successful. One treatment session with the PestPro Thermal system and we were bed bug free. Heat is the ONLY way to go.

I am a Property Manager who works for a non-profit Organization that owns and managers 60 single family homes in the state of Delaware. We provide low income housing for people with disabilities. In the past 3 years our housing has been dramatically impacted by the ongoing bed bug problem in this country. The average bed bug cost plus the high re-infestation rate was bleeding our organization dry.

I was searching the internet one day looking for heat equipment to purchase when I quickly came upon PestPro Thermal’s web site and watched a quick video on the product that they offer. I then got in contact with one of their sales personnel who was very helpful in recommending the best equipment to suit my needs. The unit is easy to operate and works GREAT! Anyone can be taught how to operate the equipment within a matter of minutes. PestPro’s customer services is very helpful as well. I had to call them a couple times when I first started using the equipment and they were thrilled to help me with all my questions and offer many tips. Our investment in this equipment has already paid for itself 3 times over and we’ve only been using it for a little over a month.

Joe G. - Property Manager - Wilmington Delaware


I am a franchisee for a national furniture rental company. I have had 1 machine for about 3 years now without a single issue after constant use. I did a lot of research as well as talking to PestPro Thermal on the phone prior to making the investment I have. They were very patient with me and have been there to answer any and all questions I have had along the way. I just a couple weeks ago purchased another unit so I don’t have to run the machine between my 2 locations. The bed bug issue isn’t getting any better so we have to be prepared. PestPro Thermal machines have performed flawlessly so far and I obviously wasn’t hesitant to buy additional equipment. I’d strongly suggest this company.

Chris V. - National Furniture Rental Franchisee - Paris Texas


After extensive research I purchased a 50kW system. Despite almost daily use it remains durable, mobile and dependable. On the few occasions I have had a minor issue the staff has been honest, sincere, friendly and very helpful resolving my issue quickly.

Hi Michael. I would like to thank you for selling us a quality product. We have over 480 local workers her on Vunabaka Fiji and have been struggling for some time now to control the widespread problem of bed bugs amongst the construction staff. We had tried chemical type products with NO satisfactory result and a lot of discomfort for the workers to sleep.

The PestPro system we purchased from you has been a huge success and has managed to kill off the bed bugs. Again, thank you for excellent sales and service. We will have no hesitation in recommending your products in the future.

"We love the flexibility that the Pest Pro Thermal equipment provides."

It is great to have a system that one person can operate.  The system is consistent in performance, that allows us to know how many heaters to use and how long to expect to be at a jobsite.  We love the flexibility that the Pest Pro Thermal equipment provides.  We can adjust pricing and be creative in providing solutions for our customers.  I would recommend the system to companies of any size.  The team at Pest Pro provides the support and training you need to be successful.

Due to the unintentional import of bed bugs to the North Slope of Alaska we needed to find a solution to ending any infestations we might discover in our remote living facilities. After much research, I received a recommendation from a hotel manager in Anchorage to try out the PestPro equipment. I have to say, as a contractor wanting to provide world class customer service, we were ecstatic to obtain a piece of equipment that has worked as well as the PestPro 10kW unit we purchased. Once discovered, we have confidently eliminated any infestations, small or large. I would recommend contacting PestPro Thermal if you are in need of or in the market for equipment that works to eliminate bed bugs.

We purchased 3 complete systems (2 heaters/2 fans per system) about 3 years ago. We treat 20-30 transit buses per week. We do these mostly on a pro-active basis. We have reduced our complaints to a minimal amount. The system works great and has been flawless. I would highly recommend this system.

I supervise work crews on an American Indian reservation in Arizona. The new PestPro thermal equipment has stood up to extreme heat conditions of the Sonoran desert. We have called asking for advice on certain situations and our questions were answered. That is the best thing about the system, you are not abandoned after the purchase.

Ralph J. - Gila River Indian Community - Phoenix Arizona


In the midst of the bed bug epidemic of 2009-2011 we were inundated with rooms out of service throughout the summer season. We would have a room infested and then have the exterminator come in and do their job. The room would be out of service for three weeks while the chemical solution worked. Needless to say this cost us a lot.

When I was introduced to PestPro and purchased their product it was like all of our problems simply went away overnight. Heat has been the best killer for this bug. Now rooms come back into service within 24 hours and we know there are no chemicals in the room.

PestPro has been a god send. Thank you so much. I always try to recommend PestPro to everybody I know in the industry.

"The machine has already paid for itself having no revenue losses"

We purchased the heating system in FEB2020 as we have had a couple of issues with other bugs. This system was easy to use and in a matter of hours it took care of our bug problem as it killed all bugs in the unit. The last time this happened we had to wait 10 days to get the pest control company to come and treat it as we are a remote resort. We can now do it in a matter of hours not days and get our room back in service the same day. The machine has already paid for itself having no revenue losses.

"This system is better than just cleaning the inside of the car with disinfectant spray because the heat permeates the entire occupant compartment. Germs are killed even in hard-to-reach areas and there's no chance of any places being accidentally overlooked. Some special equipment installed by police departments could block the flow of hot air to all parts of the vehicle, though, a Ford spokesman said."

The DDT Years

Although bed bugs have been documented in human history as early as 400 BC in ancient Greek texts there has been a resurgence of bed bugs that started about 20 years ago.

Along with the increase of these despicable insects there has been a mad dash to figure out how best to kill bed bugs.

Killing bed bugs with DDT all but eliminated them after the end of WWII. This ‘scorched earth’ approach of course came at a considerable cost to environmental and human health.

Once DDT was banned from use due to environmental degradation in 1972 the pesticide industry was forced to become more creative and develop safer ways to control all harmful insects including bed bugs.

At first, the initial versions of EPA approved pesticides were very effective in killing bed bugs but then, as always,  evolutionary forces took over. Bed bugs eventually developed resistance to the pesticides designed to kill them similar to the way human bacterium have developed resistance to the antibiotics designed to kill them.

The outdated and ineffective pesticides have now become mere annoyances to bed bugs, unless there is direct contact to the bed bugs. Because bed bugs are masters at hiding it is virtually impossible to spray the chemicals directly on to all of them. The bed bugs will scatter to avoid the pesticides. This causes the problem to spread out and become more widespread, especially in multi-unit buildings like hotels and apartment complexes.

The pesticide-resistant adult bed bugs pass their resistance on to their bed bug children via their DNA who then pass it on to their offspring. It is extremely difficult to completely kill bed bugs with chemicals anymore.

An arms race of sorts has ensued between the bed bugs naturally evolving physiology and the manufacturers of pesticides.

The pesticide companies continue to fail at developing new formulations that will kill bed bugs  and the EPA has fallen behind in approving new classes of pesticides that kill bed bugs while not harming humans.

High profile bed bug infestations, including those that affect top athletes and other celebrities continue to be in the headlines resulting in specialized class-action law firms winning larger and larger monetary awards and settlements from property owners.

Bed bug heaters have been scientifically proven to be the absolute, #1, most effective and best method for killing bed bugs quickly and safely.

There are other non-pesticide methods being developed like using genetically engineered poisonous spores from fungi that the bed bugs bring back to the bed bug cluster which poison the other bed bugs in their community cluster. Although the results have been promising this is not the quickest, surest way to kill bed bugs quickly and in one treatment session when time is money and your company reputation is on the line.

Another important factor to consider when deciding the best way to kill bed bugs is the growing trend for younger generations to push back against spraying chemicals into their living environments. The trust that the government will protect one against consumer dangers like harmful pesticides has been eroded compared to previous generations who grew up with RAID commercials on TV and cartoon cockroaches being blown up on the screen.

Alternatives to Chemical Pesticides

Steam, freezing, vacuuming and trapping bed bugs are all great ways to kill bed bugs on the surface of things when you can see them crawling around.

The weakness with these visual bed bug killing methods are that bed bugs are very good at staying hidden and laying their eggs out of sight. It has been proven to be virtually impossible for anyone using a steam or freezing wand to kill all bed bugs and their unhatched, hidden eggs in drawers of clothes, tightly packed closets and any living space where clutter is an issue.

Penetrating Heat Using Bed Bug Heaters

Bed bugs cannot develop a resistance to heat the way they develop resistance to chemical pesticides.

Heat from bed bug heaters kills bed bugs every time they are exposed to it no ifs ands or buts.

The trick of course is making sure to expose bed bugs to a high enough temperature for a long enough period of time.

Those who study insects and are considered experts are called entomologists. Entomologists all over the world agree that adult bed bugs will die when exposed to 114°F for at least 20 minutes. The hotter the temperature, the quicker the bed bugs will die.

To kill eggs laid by bed bugs requires heat treatment with slightly higher temperatures for longer periods of time because they tend to be located in more protected, insulated areas like mattresses, bedding, clutter or other fabrics. Heat treatment will penetrate cloth or fabric covered items like mattresses, sofas and clothing in drawers and closets unlike chemical pesticides which can only be sprayed on the surface.

Combining a bed bug heater and fans for heat treatment to kill bed bugs in a home is not unlike using a convection oven (which uses heat and moving hot air) to cook food.

Using a whole-room bed bug heater and fans to cook personal items like furniture, clothing, picture frames, drapes, carpeting and electronics so those items internal temperature gets up to 120°F is an absolute, 100% effective method for killing bed bugs when done properly.

Bed bugs prefer a room temperature that is warmer than humans do. That is why they tend to hang out in anything that is plugged into an electrical outlet. They will choose to live in TVs, stereos, video gaming devices as well as electrical outlets and light switches themselves. Anywhere electrical current is flowing and creating some warmth is a good place to find bed bugs hunkering down while waiting to feed on you in your bed.

When using bed bug heaters, once the temperature gets too hot for them bed bugs will crawl away from the heat to a different, cooler location to survive - if they can figure out where that cooler location is!

The best way to kill bed bugs inside the items in which they are hiding is to quickly introduce heat while simultaneously swirling the hot air around them using high volume, high temperature recirculation fans.

Because the bed bugs are surrounded by the hot, swirling air they have no way of determining where the heat it is coming from and therefore cannot run away from it.

Keep in mind that bed bug heaters are engineered to be used in very hot environments compared to where people live. They require special, heat-rated electronic components that can withstand temperatures much higher than the 80° F maximum temperatures of heaters that are sold to keep people warm.

The recirculation fans used in bed bug heat remediation for killing bed bugs are outfitted with high temperature electronic components allowing them to function in temperatures up to 180F. Normal fans including carpet drying fans will overheat and fail in the higher temperatures required to kill bed bugs. Using non-heat-rated fans is not advisable when performing heat treatments to kill bed bugs.

In addition to a heater and recirculation fan, a third component to efficiently killing bed bugs is a wireless temperature monitoring system.  Although helpful it is not an absolute requirement when killing bed bugs with heat. Many people use a handheld infrared temperature “gun” to spot check temperatures. Be sure to invest in a good one as cheaper models are not accurate enough to ensure a successful bed bug heat treatment that kills all the bed bugs.

A separate temperature monitoring system with multiple wireless sensors allows you to view a readout of the temperatures inside the treatment area while you are comfortably outside the treatment area. This is the best way to check for and avoid “cold spots” where bed bugs might hide and survive to torture you another day.

Without the circulating hot air bed bugs can sense cold spots and will go to them to survive. It is critical to create the most even temperature profile possible in the area being treated. For optimal results the temperature from one sensor to the next should be within 10 degrees of one another.

If a sensor is more than 10 degrees different from other sensors you will need to make adjustments like: repositioning a fan, the heater, the furniture or all of the above.  This is a critical piece of the puzzle to achieve success and the primary reason it is best to use separate recirculation fans which can redirect the hot air for optimal results.

Plastic, budget heaters have built-in fans and are unable to direct the hot air to where it needs to go as effectively as a separate, external fan which can be positioned independently. Also, extension ducts can be attached to separate fans which can direct hot air into hard to reach places like crawl spaces, deep closets or drop-down ceilings.

Covid-19 Virus Dies at 158F

As of 20MAY2020 studies at both the National Institutes of Health and Stanford Medicine have determined the Covid-19 virus will die when exposed to temperatures in excess of 158F.  See studies here: NIH study, Stanford Medicine study. CBS News video

Numerous PestPro Thermal System's lodging customers are now reprogramming our bed bug heater's thermostats to achieve the 158F required to decontaminate both hard (non-porous) surfaces and soft (porous) items like beds and other fabric covered items where penetrating heat is the only viable option for sanitizing everything in a hotel room to make it safe for new guests.

Since plastic, budget bed bug heaters will not achieve the temperatures required to kill the virus our customers are thankful they made the right decision to purchase our commercial bed bug heaters when they did.
