Schendel Launches Bed Bug Heat Treatment Division

Schendel’s new division will employ technicians armed with the latest technology for heat treatment units.

| February 2, 2010

TOPEKA, Kan. – Schendel Pest Services announced the creation of a Bed Bug Heat Treatment Division, designed to assist Midwest property owners affected by the rising incidence of bed bug infestations throughout Kansas, Missouri and Oklahoma.  Schendel is the first pest control company in its markets to offer Heat Treatment to customers.

Schendel’s new division will employ technicians armed with the latest in heat treatment units that safely raise the temperature of a room to 120°F, the temperature that scientists say kills the small, blood-sucking insects.  The heat units are equipped with multiple wireless temperature sensors that communicate with a remote computer station to assure target temperatures are achieved even in difficult to heat areas, such as inside mattresses. 

Schendel’s new heat units are powerful enough to penetrate upholstered furniture, closets full of clothing and boxes of household goods, without damaging household electronics, wall coverings or other personal items.
“Heat treatment is the latest and most successful method to treat a bed bug infestation,” said Schendel President Brent Boles. “It’s a very environmentally-friendly treatment option, plus, it gives property owners the advantage of not having to throw away expensive mattresses, sofas or other items where bed bugs may be hiding. Bed bugs are back with a vengeance and as anyone who has tried to rid their property of these pests can attest, they are extremely difficult to eradicate.”

Schendel expects to have its heat treatment units fully operational no later than March 1, 2010. For more information visit www.schendelpest.com/commercial/bed-bug-heat-treatment
