“Literally, it’s the biggest epidemic – as far as bugs go – hitting the world right now.”
- Mike Masterson, Isotech Pest Management
Just ask the residents of Covina’s Southe Point Apartments on Citrus Avenue, where 15% of the units are infested with bed bugs. The owner of the apartment complex, Ahmed Hassan, has been battling to eradicate these pests for over a year.
Three times since 2009 have workers from the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health declared the infestation “abated,” only to have the bed bugs reappear again.
While chemical treatments for bed bug infestations can be effective, Alliance promotes a more radical solution and guarantees success. Cutting-edge heat treatment technology (ThermaPure heat) allows Alliance to elevate the temperature of a structure to 140 degrees, which is the temperature at which bed bugs (and their eggs) are destroyed. The upside to this technology is quite obvious: no harmful chemicals, no odors, no needless move-out, etc.
Angelo Bellomo, directory of environmental health at the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health, stated that, “I think we’re looking at bed bugs a lot more seriously today than we have historically.”
Alec Gerry, a veterinary entomologist on faculty at UC Riverside, agrees: “Most likely, the bedbugs are back in the United States in greater numbers forever.”
If this is the case, then its time for Los Angeles county residents to educate themselves on the distinct benefits of Alliance’s ThermaPure heat treatment for bed bugs.
Excepts from a Yahoo! News article on bed bugs:
“For reasons still unknown, bedbugs really seem to like the state of Ohio. The problem is so dire in Cincinnati that some people with infested apartments have resorted to sleeping on the streets.
Cincinnati created a Bedbug Remediation Commission in 2007 and, like other local and national governments around the world, the city is trying to mobilize strategies to control infestations of the resilient insects, which can hide in almost any crack or crevice and can go a year or more without eating. On Aug. 10, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued a consumer alert about off-label bedbug treatments, warning in particular of the dangers of using outdoor pesticides in homes. The Ohio Department of Agriculture has mounted a more unusual response to the crisis: it petitioned the EPA for an exemption to allow in-home use of propoxur, a pesticide and neurotoxin banned in the 1990s out of concern for its effects on children.
Although the EPA rejected Ohio’s propoxur plea in June, the agency has scheduled an Aug. 18 meeting with state and municipal leaders to try to formulate an abatement strategy everyone can live with. Among the meeting’s participants: representatives from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and, no joke, the Department of Defense…”

Alliance Environmental Group is proud to relay the first amongst many presumed successes in the battle against low-quality, dishonest air duct cleaning companies. Refer to our information on Alliance’s air duct cleaning packages for more details on this sort of outfit.
An excerpt from John Schulte’s article “Scammers Beware”:
“We’ve all seen them: the coupons offering whole-house air duct cleaning for less than the cost of a cheeseburger off the value meal menu of your local fast food restaurant. I know that you’ve seen these, because about a million NADCA members each year make it a point to call our offices and complain about these coupons. And despite our many efforts to educate consumers and solicit support from the legal system, it has been this way for many years.
My friends, I am pleased to report that the winds of change are – FINALLY – starting to blow our way! Earlier this year, the Montgomery County Office of Consumer Protection (Maryland) pursued charges against eight air duct cleaning companies and two direct mail advertising forms for deceptive advertising practices and other illegal business practices….
These cases follow news exposes in states across the country over the past six months, as well as other cases that are currently under investigation. NADCA Headquarters and NADCA members have assisted in these cases while distinguishing between the few bad actors in the industry and the quality service provided by the legitimate companies out there working hard to earn a living.”
