Bed bugs were almost wiped out in the United States by the use of DDT.  Since the 1950’s however, they have become resistant to the insecticides we use today and spread more easily because of the ease of international travel.

Today, 20% of the American population will admit to either having had bed bugs or knowing someone who has.  The incidence of bed bug infestation has increased 500% in the past two years.  Heat treatments are the only way to kill all bed bugs, larvae and eggs in one safe, chemical-free treatment.  Alliance Environmental Group offers ThermaPureHeat to treat bed bugs in any structure.
