VENTURA, CA – ThermaPure announced that Sprague Pest Solutions of Tacoma, Wash., has signed a license agreement that allows Sprague to use ThermaPure throughout the Pacific Northwest.

“Sprague Pest Solutions is one of the premier pest control operators in the entire U.S.,” says David Hedman, CEO of ThermaPure. “With the bed bug problem growing dramatically in the Northwest, it’s clear that residents, property owners, hotels and other businesses will greatly benefit from being able to access ThermaPure heat treatments.”

ThermaPure is a patented, non-chemical heat and filtration technology that utilizes structural pasteurization to sanitize structures. The ThermaPure process kills insects, including bed bugs and their eggs. It also can kill or denature mold, bacteria, viruses, odors and allergens.

“In the past, we would get an occasional call from a client in the Northwest about bed bugs. That has changed dramatically. Today, we receive calls every day for help with bed bugs,” says Alfie Treleven, CEO of Sprague. “You can understand why we’re excited to add ThermaPure to our arsenal, because heat works so well to kill bed bugs and their eggs, and a lot of people in our service area would prefer a green technology.”

The ThermaPure (www.thermapure.com) heat process is carefully measured and monitored, and includes filtration to help remove contaminants that are sent airborne because of the circulation of super-heated air. ThermaPure-trained technicians are also careful to protect or remove heat-sensitive items, including electronics, paintings, windows and sprinkler heads, among others.
